With winter fast on approach, New Jersey weather is getting ready to take a turn with icy roads, poor visibility, and of course, some frigid temperatures. To get ready, we put together a list of recommended services.

For starters, you should make sure your windshield wipers and defroster work properly. During the winter, visibility can get pretty abysmal, which is why it’s important for these components to be in good condition.

Not all motor oil functions optimally during the winter chill. Fortunately, there is winter-grade motor oil available for your Jeep SUV or RAM truck. You can tell the difference between winter-ready oil and standard oil by the first number. For example, a 5W-30 oil is going to perform better than a 10W-30 grade oil.

Road conditions change drastically during the winter, and when the pavement is icy, it’s wise to be wary of how you drive. That means easing on the accelerator and being careful not to slam on the brakes. You should also be cautious of sharp turns, as a sudden left or right can result in a spin-out, no matter how thick the tread on your tires is. Possibly the best thing you can do for your car during winter is to have it looked over by a skilled mechanic.

Here at Sansone Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM, our Chrysler service center serving Edison, NJ will make sure that both you and your car are fully prepared for the winter season. Winter driving can seem like a challenge at first, but when done right, you can get through it without a single hiccup.
