Ever hear “March comes in like a lion, out like a lamb?” In the automotive world, we think it comes in like winter salt and out like Barrington potholes! The weather’s in transition, which means your vehicle should be too. Thankfully, the service department here at Wickstrom Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM can help you out in every which way.

Tires

Winter weather means snow, ice, and salt. Summer means hot roads and rain. Visit our Dodge service center to switch out your tires for a set of all-weather or summer tires. If you don’t need to switch your tires, our technicians will check the air pressure and tread to ensures yours are still in optimal condition.

Battery

Cold weather is tough on your battery. Make an appointment with our service center, and we’ll test your battery’s charge and clean off any corrosion. If needed, we’ll also make a suggestion for a replacement.

Brakes

Do the brakes on your Jeep Grand Cherokee or RAM 1500 seem a bit off? Our auto service team can do an assessment and make some recommendations. Common signs of brake problems include squealing, squeaking, a “soft” pedal, and longer stopping distances.

Fluids

Oil changes and fluid top-offs are pretty basic car maintenance, and now is a great time to get those ticked off the to-do list. We’ll happily examine your coolant, windshield wash, and transmission fluid.

Miscellaneous

Additional elements to consider having inspected during spring service include your windshield wipers, exterior lights, and, of course, a good cleaning inside and out. Salt that clings onto your vehicle can soon cause corrosion, which is why it’s important for regular washes throughout the season. We also encourage a wax to top it off!
