Tire Rotation Is a Necessity

If a person does not rotate their tires on a regular basis, uneven wear will ruin their set of tires and shorten the life of the tire. As a car gets driven on the road, it comes into contact with surfaces that wear down the tire. Depending on the location of the tires on the vehicle, the tires wear in different spots for different reasons. They must get rotated to ensure tread wear is spread out among the tires. This prolongs the life of the tire and makes for a smoother, more controllable ride.
See our dealership at Interstate Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM in West Monroe, LA, for a tire rotation schedule if there is not one in your owner's manual. At the dealership, our trained technicians will ensure tire quality by rotating and inspecting your tires and replace the badly worn tires if need be. If you need other maintenance like an oil change or brake service, we can help with that as well.

Take Care of the Windshield Problem Before It Grows

The worst thing you can do with rock chips is to ignore them. If you ignore the chips, they won't go away, and they may grow into cracks. Big and bothersome cracks that can even make their way into your field of vision. If this happens, it poses as a safety risk, but if you handle them right away, then you can catch the damage before it gets worse. Once you get a crack, it's quite a lot harder to deal with, since there's really not a whole lot that you can do with them besides replacing the whole windshield. You can't really repair them, and they will weaken your windshield, forcing you to have to buy a new one. Just take care of the chips when they happen, and you can prolong the life of your windshield. Sometimes, insurance companies will even handle the cost of the repair for you. It's a good idea to check that before you come see us at Interstate Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM in West Monroe, LA.

Time to Replace Old Car Battery?

Car batteries have a shelf life just like any other battery. Fortunately, a car battery doesn't have to be replaced that often. So what happens when it does? What are the signs associated with a failing battery?
Signs of a battery wearing thin can vary. You might notice a slower windshield speed. The car might not start as quickly as before. The stereo might not work as well. Weaker headlights is also a good sign. Interior lights might struggle to reach optimum strength. The horn may not honk as loud. These issues or a combination of these could mean it's time for you to get a new battery. It can be a frustrating experience. What's worse is having a completely dead battery.
Diagnosing the symptoms allows you to get a new battery now. Purchasing a new battery can save you future towing charges and you won't have to ask around for a jump. Sometimes a jump start won't work once a battery is dead. Batteries all fade. If you watch for the signs, you can avoid being ..

Benefits of Regular Tire Rotation

Tire rotation is an important vehicle maintenance aspect, which unfortunately is often overlooked. Tire rotation extends your car's tire durability and ensures safe driving, while helping to maintain your fuel economy.
In most vehicles, the front tire wears and tears more quickly than the rear tires. This wear and tear mostly affects Front Wheel Drive vehicles where the primary accelerating power is provided by the front tires. Tire rotation involves changing the initial position of the tires, where the rear tires are brought to the front and the front tires to the rear. This does not necessarily mean criss-crossing or even exchanging them on the same axle.
Regular tire rotation is critical in improving your vehicles performance; it will essentially allow your tires to develop even wear patterns, which in turn enhances your vehicle's responsiveness in dangerous driving conditions. If you are looking for advice on tire rotation, maximized fuel economy and prioritized repairs..

To Lease or to Loan? That is the Question

When considering whether to buy or lease it can be a tough choice. When you buy a vehicle, you will end up owning the vehicle for as long as you want it. With a lease, you get to use a car for a duration of the time specified in your lease but when your term is up you have to return it, unless you decide to buy. When you lease, your miles are somewhat limited, but not when you buy the vehicle.
