Winter time means you need to put a little bit more care and attention with how your car is running and how well it’s equipped to handle the Alberta winter elements. Everything from winter tires, to mechanical checks and add-on accessories will get your Dodge vehicle winter-ready and up to the Edmonton winter challenges. Learn from us at Southtown Chrysler, your local Dodge Edmonton dealer, and make sure your Dodge is winterized.
You should always be switching your tires over to appropriate winter options, but it’s especially the case when dealing with both the sports cars and SUVs Dodge offers. For the Charger and Challenger, it’s vastly important to help these sports cars handle the winter, by equipping them with appropriate tires that will help them drive over the snowy Alberta streets when the roads get really bad. For the larger Dodge offerings, with the Durango and Journey, you’ll more likely be finding yourself more outside the city limits than on the city streets, so making sure your tires are up-to-the-task when roads may not have been plowed or sanded is vital. Winter tires also help reduce wear on your vehicle and allow it to last longer without a constant need for service. Luckily, Southtown Chrysler will help you find winter tires and put them on for you!
Under The Hood
Every Dodge has performance at the forefront of how well they succeed in every environment, so making sure that everything is working in proper order under the hood is essential. Oil, anti-freeze, windshield wiper fluid and more are all vital to confirm that they are not only filled to their appropriate level, but are also geared towards the cold weather. Having a properly maintained battery ensures that you won’t have to worry about having insufficient amounts of power when you’re trapped in the cold and need your vehicle to start. Our Southtown Chrysler service department will be glad to look over your Dodge and get it ready to tackle the harshest of the Alberta winter.
Dodge Winter Accessories
Beyond the mechanical features of your Dodge, there’s several add-ons inside and out that will make your life much easier and help cutdown on all the winter environment does. Winter makes everything more dirty, with the combination of the snow and dirt that gets tracked on your vehicle. Reduce the amount that gets into your car and prevent it from providing permanent interior damage by adding specific accessories. Cargo mats, all-weather floor mats, and even exterior splash guards, will help focalize the grime in one area, and prevent it from covering any further areas of your vehicle. Cover the roof of your vehicle with a roof mount carrier for your ski and snowboard, get a remote starter and get LED fog lights to make your drives that much easier on your vehicle.
