From our wide selection of new and used cars, to answering any of your car-related questions, we pride ourselves on your satisfaction. One of the essential aspects of earning your satisfaction is providing you with top-notch spring maintenance care.

Whether you drive a brand new 2018 RAM 2500 or are driving a certified pre-owned car that is still in great condition, springtime maintenance is incredibly important. While spring may not seem like an obvious time for car maintenance, it’s actually the perfect time to for vehicle maintenance after the your car has strained all winter long.

Cold temperature, poor weather, and unpredictable road conditions can all cause short-term damage to your vehicle that, if left unchecked, can result in long-term mechanical issues. To prevent this, we often recommend that drivers visit our dealership in Bossier City, LA to have their vehicles inspected from trunk to hood.

One major component to look out for is your tires. Your tires act as the foundation of your vehicle, providing traction and supporting the vehicle’s weight. During winter, unpredictable road conditions and frigid temperatures can put excess wear and tear on your tires. By having them checked, and possibly replaced, in spring, you can continue driving safely on through the rest of the year.

Cold temperatures can also dramatically affect your engine. We often recommend that drivers have their motor fluids checked to ensure things are still in good shape. The transition from cold to warm weather can hinder the effectiveness of essential motor fluids like motor oil and coolant, and having them checked can help you avoid some serious long-term consequences.

At Landers Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM, the skilled technicians at our service center can evaluate your car and get your ready for the spring season. When it comes to car maintenance, no one should ever go it alone.
