5 Tips to Ensure Efficiency

Our Dodge dealership serving Canton wants to make sure that you take the proper precautions necessary to drive safely through the winter.

  1. Remember to maintain your tire pressure during the fall and winter. Not only for safety purposes, but proper tire inflation can also improve gas mileage between three and ten percent.
  2. Be sure to check your tires tread depth and scan your tires for various bumps and bald spots. The performance of your car’s tires is critical to the safety, performance and efficiency of your vehicle.
  3. Remember to keep your battery connections clean, tight, and corrosion free. Batteries do not always give warning signs before they fail. After about three years, it is suggested to have your battery replaced to ensure it won’t die on you.
  4. Windshield wiper blades are often neglected and forgotten. Don’t fall into this habit as you need these to see through the toughest weather conditions. Ninety percent of all driving decisions are based on a clear unobstructed view of the road. This means that proper visibility is completely necessary for a safe ride, especially during winter weather. If your wipers are chattering, streaking, or failing to wipe consistently, you need new blades. It is recommended to replace your blades every six months.
  5. Based on a recent study by the Car Care Council, fourteen percent of vehicles have belts that need replacing and ten percent have hoses that need to be replaced. Most belt manufacturers recommend periodic replacement for preventative measures. Replacing the belts from time to time can help minimize the risk of a breakdown caused by belt failure. Breaking down in the dead of winter isn’t on anyone’s todo list.
