Whether you are heading to the beach with friends, taking a road trip with your family, or commuting back and forth to work, it is important that your vehicle is ready and properly prepared for the summer months. That is why All Star Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram has compiled a list of vehicle tips to ensure that you will stay safe this summer!

Get your Vehicle Serviced

Before you get on the road, get your vehicle serviced. Regular maintenance such as oil changes, battery checked and tire rotations will go a long way towards preventing breakdowns. If your vehicle has not been serviced according to Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep or Ram’s recommendations, schedule a maintenance checkup with us right away! You can schedule a service appointment by clicking here!

Watch out for Overheating

Overheating can cause serious summer breakdowns. Inspect your coolant system including the radiator and pressure cap to make sure they’re in good shape. You should also check hoses and belts for signs of blisters, cracks, and wear. Keep your vehicle hydrated by checking for proper fuel levels and look for signs of leaks, especially coolant. Consider bringing extra coolant, oil, and fluids along with you, especially if you’re taking a long road trip!

Emergency Kit Prepared

Also remember to pack and emergency roadside kit. Even a well-maintained vehicle can break down or get a flat tire, so it is important to be prepared for any situation thrown your way. Click here to view some awesome emergency roadside kits!

Double Check those Babies

Keep kids and pets safe in the car at all times. Make sure your children are properly secured in their car seats and booster seats. Also make sure they remain seated and buckled in when the vehicle is in motion. If you are traveling with a pet, make sure the animal is properly secured in a harness or dog seat belt. Here are some different options for a dog seat belt if you are traveling with a larger dog. Pets are part of the family, so make sure they are properly secured also!

Check the Weather

The summer months are popular times for severe storms and flooding, so be sure to check the weather before you head out. Driving in the rain can be dangerous, and flooding can quickly turn deadly, especially if you drive into high water. Even short showers can make roads slippery as rain mixes with the dirt and oil on the road.

These are some great tips to remember if you are about to take a long road trip, or just for your daily commutes to work and doing errands! Summer time is a great chance to spend some much needed time with family and friends, but always remember these tips to stay safe this summer and you will be ready for any adventure thrown your way!
