With the year winding down, now is the time when people start coming up with resolutions for the new year. At Executive Dodge Jeep®, the Jeep dealership in Wallingford, CT drivers will find when they search “trucks for sale near me,” we think it would be a good idea to make some resolutions for your car as well.

Don’t Ignore Symptoms

If you hear clanking or clacking, it can be tempting to just turn the radio up, especially if it doesn’t seem to be affecting the normal function of the car. In 2018, try to take those sounds more seriously. Attacking them early can prevent them from getting worse and possibly even save you some trouble down the line.

Schedule Service

Yes, even if you don’t think anything is wrong. Getting your car serviced can seem like a hassle, especially when you’re busy. Try to carve out some time when you’re not busy to give your car a checkup. Make it at least twice a year. Getting the jump on problems is the name of the game when it comes to regular maintenance.

Stay on Top of Fluids

Your fluid levels can sometimes slip under the radar because low fluids aren’t typically catastrophic problems. Still, you don’t want to find you’re out of wiper fluid when you need it on a highway.

Pay Special Attention to Your Tires

Try to get in the habit of inspecting your tires, at least once a week. Check for balding and improper inflation especially. If you find anything that seems suspect, bring your car into the tire department of our Dodge service center. Tire safety is especially important.

At Executive Dodge Jeep, we want to make sure your car is good to go for years to come. Following these simple resolutions can help you make sure 2018 sees your car running smoothly.
