Spring cleaning is a great way to tackle the changing of the season. At Ourisman Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM of Bowie, we think that cleaning should extend to your car as well.

The first step of this process should actually be any maintenance your car may need, as well as a routine check-up. Winter can be a real doozy on cars. The damage to the streets can lead to damage to your suspension and alignment, among other issues. Should any of these problems arise, the team in our Jeep service center are more than up to the challenge.

Be on the lookout for tire concerns as well. Tire vigilance is a year-round concern, but winter can be particularly hard on them. If you opted for snow tires, make sure that when you replace them with your regular tires, the pressure is within optimal parameters. Not only is it safer, but it will help with fuel efficiency as well.

When was the last time you changed your wiper blades? If they are still effective, then great. However, if they aren’t doing a proper job, it is definitely time to get new ones that will provide you with the clearest view.

Last but not least comes the actual cleaning part of spring cleaning. After all the maintenance has been done, treat your car to a nice detailing to wash all that winter off your 2018 Dodge Durango or Chrysler Pacifica. Getting the vehicle waxed is even better. Just don’t ignore the inside during your deep clean—the salt, snow, and dirt can make its way to your interior as well. A good cleaning won’t just make it look nice, it will help it last longer as well.

We look forward to helping you with these and more automotive needs here at our Dodge dealership near Crofton, MD. Enjoy what’s left of this winter and bring on the spring!
