Your Chrysler is just as important as your Dodge, Jeep or Ram to get ready for the winter. You want your high-class vehicle to maintain its top tier look year-round, so make certain it’s ready to strive over the cold winter months. Read on from us, your south Chrysler Edmonton dealer, at Southtown Chrysler and discover all you need to get your Chrysler car or minivan ready for winter.
Doesn’t matter if it’s for your luxurious Chrysler 300 or your family-oriented Chrysler Pacifica, switching to winter tires is a must over the treacherous Alberta winter. You can never tell what the road conditions might be like day-to-day during the winter season, so help your vehicle be prepared as best as possible by driving on some winter tires. These tires have a deeper and more comprehensive tread, so they’re able to more accurately grip onto the snow and ice that cover the roads for better traction. Also, make sure your tires are inflated to their proper level, a tire inspection and service will make sure your tires are ready to take on the challenges of the winter season.
Every fluid that runs through your Chrysler and keeps it running should be thoroughly inspected and checked that not only it is the proper variant for cold weather, but also filled to the appropriate levels. Your job’s not done once, though, you should be checking your fluids throughout the winter season, as they can easily diminish, especially the windshield washer fluid, which might not seem as important as oil on the surface, but is still very vital in having proper vision control. Antifreeze is important to check, as well, as it keeps your engine warm in the winter. Keep some extra jugs in your trunk, so if you run out mid-trip you’ll be able to easily fill up again.
It’s always a good idea to keep a safety and emergency kit in your Chrysler year-round, but in the cold months there’s a few more additions you’ll want to make sure are on hand at all times. Extra warm clothes like gloves, toques, boots and a blanket should always be stocked so you can stay warm if your vehicle breaks down. A gritty material like kitty litter or sand is a great idea to keep you in your vehicle to help you get more traction over ice if you find yourself stuck. A shovel will help, as well, if you’re stuck and your tires need some relief. Don’t forget the normal essentials in your Chrysler like food, jumper cables, first aid kit, flashlight, tools and anything else you might think could personally come in handy.
