Winter comes early around Sheboygan, WI, it comes in hard, and it tends to stay a while. Take some time this month to schedule a trip to Van Horn Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM FIAT of Plymouth and winterize your vehicle.

We’ve got a number of vehicle service specials available as well to help you save on your next visit in our Dodge service center serving Appleton, WI.
Winterizing your RAM 1500 or Jeep Cherokee is all about making sure you have the right parts and fluids to withstand cold temperatures. When the temperature drops low, it changes the way your car behaves. Take oil for example. It actually flows slower, which can cause problems. Oftentimes, we’ll put in thinner oil for the winter months, so that even as viscosity drops in the cold, it still flows well.
Your coolant behaves differently too, and it can actually freeze inside your radiator if it doesn’t have the right ratio of antifreeze to water. It’s a nasty surprise when you go to clear your windshield in the snow and you find that you didn’t put in freeze-resistant wiper fluid. Instead of clearing the windshield, you’ve added another layer of ice to content with.
Nobody likes getting their brakes and tires checked, because nobody likes paying for new brakes or tires. But these form the foundation of your vehicle’s safety. Snow tires are a great idea for the winter months, as they have deep treads designed to maximize surface area and deliver better traction. They’re also made of a unique rubber compound specially formulated for extreme cold.
