When should you bring your vehicle in for a wheel alignment? That is not a question that drivers ask enough and most do not know the right answer to it. Here is things to know about what to look for when needing a wheel alignment.
A major reason why most people don’t bother with getting their wheels aligned is due to the unknown nature of it. Manufacturers don’t have a recommended schedule because of different issues that could cause a problem with the wheel alignment. It can be caused by potholes and bumps, or just from key parts of the suspension wearing down.
The first thing to check for is if you’re noticing that your car is drifting to one side or that if you are unable to keep the car going straight by keeping the steering wheel neutral. These are very sure indicators that there is a problem and it may be that the best solution is to get your vehicle’s wheels aligned.
This is a good time to check on the tires to see what condition they are in. A telltale sign of something wrong with the wheel alignment is if there is uneven wear, meaning that the front or back tires have different wear patterns.
If you are having any of these problems, or see the signs, it may be a good time to schedule a time to be seen by a service department and look into getting a wheel alignment performed. To those not having these immediate issues, it is recommended that you get your vehicle’s alignment done at least once a year or every 15,000 miles.
If you want to have your car looked at, then you can schedule a time to be seen by the service department at Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge by going to our service tab on the website. You can also keep up with your service appointments by downloading our mobile app to view details in real time on your vehicle when brought in for a service appointment.
Sirius Radio and Chrysler have teamed up to give drivers of Chrysler’s newest models access to satellite radio.
Market Watch is reporting that buyers of new 2014 models of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram will be receiving an added bonus on top of the purchase. Sirius radio will extend to them a one year subscription just for buying. This is not some limited subscription either, this is full access to their suite of programming including their premium channels.
Even though it comes with the car, the one year subscription to Sirius that comes with 2014 models is able to leave the vehicle. So at home, in the office, walking to work with the headphones on, each of these will grant continued access to the bargain.
The qualifications for being part of this new deal is that it will be limited to the 2014 models that come with the Uconnect system.
With 2013 we’re one step closer to the future. I feel the appropriate joke to make at the moment is to ask where my flying car is. One thing that is undergoing a major change in the coming year will be how your car gets serviced. Chrysler is leading the way in bringing a new way of having your car looked at.
Detroit News lays out just how much a difference you going to be seeing when you pull your car in to the service department. You’ll now be greeted by someone with an iPad in hand. They’ll plug the device into your vehicle and be able to see all the important information for it. Everything from how much air pressure is in your tires to seeing any recalls in effect for any parts currently on your car.
Chrysler is wanting to keep ahead of the competition by having the tech edge. “We hope it will increase the customer experience and increase the loyalty of our customers,” says Pietro Gorlier, president of Mopar. “We believe it is a real competitive advantage for our dealers.”
The new system will operate with a cloud system that the iPad connects to. Once the technician has the vehicle all hooked up, all the information linked to the car on the cloud will be at his instant access. It will lead to a much better customer experience and a more thorough diagnosis for any problems.
Chrysler is still getting everything to work the way they want it to. They want this technology in all their dealerships before the end of 2013. The march of progress is always fascinating, and in this case, is a welcome improvement for the consumer.
