If there’s one thing that Ourisman Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM of Bowie knows, it’s that many drivers rely heavily on their vehicle for their day to day life. With summer nearly upon us, many drivers will rely even more on their Jeep vehicle for a variety of tasks from family outings to longer road trips. Our Jeep service center has some great recommendations to help you prepare for great driving this summer!

One easy way to prepare your car or SUV for summer is giving it a thorough cleaning inside and out. First, remove all the trash from your floorboards, trunk, and other hidden spaces in your vehicle. Wipe down your dashboard, steering wheel, and other areas with some protective wipes. (Consider taking your vehicle to a reputable car wash and have these done by professionals).  Sunlight can be particularly damaging to your upholstery, so purchasing an inexpensive cardboard sunscreen for your windshield can help protect your interior from heat and damage.

One way to determine how our service department can help you is through a small variety of preventative measures. Next time you stop to fill the gas tank, check your oil, windshield wiper, and transmission fluid levels to determine whether you need full multi-point inspection and service. Checking your air filter and wiper blades also helps keep you driving safely in your car, and checking the tire pressure in all of your tires (including your spare) can help you determine what kind of services your vehicle requires at our service center.

Summer will be here before you know it, so make sure you’re ready by bringing your car to our Bowie, MD Jeep dealership and visit our service department. Our service technicians have the knowledge and the skills to get your vehicle ready for great summer driving, so please visit us soon!
