Spring Cleaning for Your Car

It’s almost April, and soon spring cleaning will be on everyone’s minds.

But spring cleaning isn’t only for your home or office.

W Dodge - March 10

Take the time this year to make sure you properly clean your car, and get it looking it’s best for spring and summer, with these few tips:

  • Organize the glove box, and consoles. Sort through all of the paperwork in your glove box, and remove old insurance cards, vehicle registrations, and any other objects that you no longer need to cart around every day. Create a folder for your current vehicle registration and insurance card, and neatly place the important documents back inside of your glove box, to ensure that everything is there and easy to find when you need it!
  • Clean the windows—inside and out.  Wintertime driving can be pretty trying on the exterior of your car. Clean the windows extra, both inside and outside, with a clean towel, to ensure your visibility is never compromised.
  • Remove clutter from your trunk. Sort through all of the clutter in your trunk, and take out anything you might not need this summer (snow brushes, ice melt, gloves, etc.) and store them away for next year. While your trunk is clean, verify that your spare tire is in perfect, working order, just in case!
  • Scrub the exterior.  Winter time can leave salt and road grime all over the exterior of your vehicle. Be sure to scrub off the salt, especially on the lower half of your vehicle, and make sure your paint stays looking brand new!

If you’re in need of service for your vehicle, to ensure it’s running its best before you venture out for your spring and adventures, contact our Service Department, today!

Keep Your Vehicle at It’s Best This Year

We’re 11 days into the New Year, and most people have already set and are actively working through their New Year’s Resolutions, whether it’s dieting, better organization, or making sure you’re on time for work. But what about bettering your automobile? It’s not too late to set a resolution to keep your vehicle at it’s best this 2018.

W Dodge - January 11.jpg

Your vehicle is most likely one of your most valued and relied on possessions, so, why not take every measure to ensure you’re keeping it in tip-top shape throughout the year?

Here are a few ideas for New Year’s Resolutions, specifically for your automobile:

  • Keep up with your routine maintenance. Your vehicle’s routine maintenance is one of the easiest things to overlook—whether it’s not having the time to have maintenance addressed, or the money. Although it’s easy to neglect, it’s also one of the most important aspects of your vehicle’s longevity and can help you save money and time, in the long run. Schedule an appointment with our Service Department to have your routine maintenance addressed. 
  • Keep your vehicle’s interior and exterior clean. Although it’s tough to maintain the cleanliness of your vehicle, especially in the colder months, you may feel better if you do. Having a clean vehicle may help reduce stress, especially if your vehicle tends to get cluttered easily.
  • Keep up with your neglected maintenance. Have a rattling noise that’s been driving you crazy for a while, but haven’t had it looked at yet? Bring your car in for Service, and let our experts help you pin-point the problem, before it becomes a bigger problem.
  • Schedule regular check-ups. Just like your physical health, it’s important to keep tabs on your vehicle’s health. Schedule regular appointments to have your car checked, to ensure everything is in working order.

Be Sure Your Vehicle is Ready for Winter Weather This Year

It’s December, and cold weather has arrived here in Southern Maryland. Make sure your vehicle is ready to face the challenges that cold weather will throw at it, with these helpful tips.

W Chevy - October 23.jpg

  • Change Windshield Wiper Blades & Refill Wiper Fluid – Snow, salt, and sludge on the roadways can be problematic, especially if your windshield wiper blades are old or you’re lacking wiper fluid. Be sure both are ready to go this year.
  • Check Tire Pressure – Make sure all of your tires are inflated to the proper weight. Cooler temperatures often leave your tires slightly on the low side. Check your tires often to ensure they’re inflated properly all winter long.
  • Change Your Oil – With the hussle and bussle of the busy holiday season, often times, preventative maintenance may fall by the wayside. Change your oil ahead of time, to ensure you don’t neglect your vehicle’s health.
  • Replace Your Battery – Your battery might seem fine now, but, when was the last time it was replaced? Batteries should be replaced every couple of years. Make sure a cold winter morning doesn’t leave you stranded this year.
  • Check Your Antifreeze Mixture – Make sure your antifreeze mixture is up to par for the winter months to ensure your engine is operating at the correct temperature.

To make sure your car is ready for the winter months, contact the experts in our Service Department. Schedule your appointment, today.

Tips for Labor Day Travel

Labor Day weekend is just around the corner, and several families in the Southern Maryland area will be headed out of town, whether camping, to visit family and friends, or for a last-minute beach vacation.

W Dodge - August 31.jpg

Here at Waldorf Dodge, we want you and your family to have a seamless trip, from the planning stages, to the travel, to the vacation itself. Here are a few tips from our team here at Waldorf Dodge Ram on how to have a safe and fun vacation, this Labor Day weekend.

  • Make a List – Make a list of things to bring with you. Whether you’re camping, at the beach or visiting friends and family, realizing once you arrive at your destination that you forgot something can be frustrating, especially if it is something like medication that you’ve left behind.
  • Ensure Your Vehicle is Road-Trip Ready – Be sure that your tires are in good working condition and are properly inflated, all of your fluids are topped off, and that your vehicle is overall ready to hit the road. Contact our Service Department, and let our experts handle your service needs.
  • Leave During Off-Peak Times – Most families will be hitting the road on Friday afternoon, en route to their destinations. Instead, begin your journey on Thursday to avoid the Labor Day rush on the road.
  • Get Enough Rest – Be sure to get enough sleep before you head out on your road trip. Drowsy driving can be very dangerous.
  • Communicate – Communicate with your family and friends on when you’ll be leaving, what route you’ll be taking, and your estimated arrival time. If you haven’t arrived when expected, your family will at least have an idea of where to find you in the event of an accident.

We hope everyone has a safe and relaxing Labor Day Weekend!

Tips to Protect Your Teen Behind the Wheel

The moment your teen turns 16 is exciting, but is also potentially worrisome for parents. As they acquire their driver’s license, they’re well on their path to independence, however, protecting them is still your priority.

But how do you protect them, when you’re not around?

W Dodge - July 19.jpg

Here are a few tips to ensure your teen is safe, when they get behind the wheel:

  • Be sure that the vehicle your teen is behind the wheel in is in tip-top shape. Verify the safety ratings on the vehicle, as well as the current condition of the tires, brakes, and engine. Contact our Service Department to ensure the vehicle that your teen will be driving is up-to-par.
  • It might be a good idea to limit the time that your teen is allowed to be behind the wheel; according to an article from esurance, most accidents involving teen drivers occur after 9:00 PM, so, setting curfews could be in their best interest.
  • Limit the number of passengers that your teen is allowed to travel with, to help avoid distractions.
  • Speak with your teen about the dangers of driving distracted, or driving under the influence.
  • Be sure to thoroughly teach your teen about all the features of the vehicle they will be driving, before they get behind the wheel. Ensure your teen knows exactly where to find the switches for the lights, windshield wipers, and hazard lights, in case of emergency.

Driving is an exciting privilege, but could potentially be a very dangerous task. To learn what vehicle might be the best fit for your teen, visit us at WaldorfDodge.com, or contact us today!
