Now that we’re about halfway through summer here in the Kansas City and Overland Park, KS areas, it’s time to ensure that your vehicle is ready for anything you throw at it during your adventures. Caring for your car with regular maintenance is essential, especially as the temperatures continue to rise.

 Here at Victory Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we want our drivers to keep their cars running for a long time, whether you just bought a new 2019 Jeep Cherokee or you’ve had your beloved RAM 1500 for a decade. That’s why we’re providing a couple of summer car care tips!

 We all know how important it is to keep cool in the summertime heat and your car is no exception. During the summer, your coolant is working hard to keep you moving. You’ll want to periodically check your coolant fluid level, coolant hose, and reservoir. Your coolant works to keep your engine cool so if you notice any issues, bring in your vehicle for expert service right away.

Your car has other essential fluids in addition to your coolant, everything from your engine oil to your power steering fluid to your wiper fluid is crucial during the summer. Keep an eye on these areas to ensure you aren’t caught in a tight spot.

 The higher the temperature, the more your tires are affected. Properly inflated tires keep you and your vehicle safe, increase performance, and help with efficiency. All of these things make your car work less hard and save you money on gas.

Whatever kind of service or maintenance you need this summer, you’ll find it here at our Kansas City service center. Be sure to check out our current service specials to see how you can save big. We’ll get you back on the road in no time.
