Make Sure Your Vehicle is Ready for Fall with these Vehicle Service Tips

Fall can be a busy time for any family, especially if you have kids. Between the new school year starting, extra-curricular activities, and the busy (and quickly approaching) holiday season, it’s hard to find the time to do anything, let alone prepare your car for inclement weather. Although it’s tough to find the time, it’s very important to do so, to ensure your family is safe on the road.

Chevy - August 25

Here are a few tips for safe travel when going into the Fall months:

  • Inspect Your Tires: Fall and Winter usually mean slippery conditions. Between wet leaves laying on the road and rain, sleet, and snow in the winter, you’ll want to ensure you have tires with ample tread to ensure you have good traction.
  • Check Lights: Ask a friend or family member to come outside with you while you turn on and off each light to ensure all are working properly. Fall means less day light. Make sure your lights work good while you still have time!
  • Replace Wiper Blades: Fall and Winter mean sleet, snow, rain, and everything in between. Make sure your windshield wipers can get through anything before the bad weather starts.
  • Make Sure Defroster Works: Check the functionality of your front and rear defroster to make sure they’re working properly to avoid having your windows fog up.
  • Check Your Battery: Nothing is worse than being in a hurry on a cool fall morning, just to find out that your car battery is dead. Hook up a battery tester to your car’s battery to ensure it’s in proper working order.
  • Check All Fluid Levels: Make sure you have enough fluids in your car (windshield, power steering, brake, transmission, and coolant). There’s nothing worse than an overheating car when you’re in a rush to get the kids to school.

Our technicians are ready and waiting to help you get your vehicle fall-ready—make an appointment with Waldorf Dodge’s Service Department today!

Tips for Tailgating in your Ram 1500 This Football Season

Football season is in full swing, and there is nothing better than going to a Washington Redskins game with your family and friends, enjoying the atmosphere, the smell of hamburgers and hot dogs cooking, and the all-around good time you have, even before the game starts.

w-dodge-september-16

We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite tailgating tips that you are sure to love, and you can put them to great use in your brand new Ram 1500 this year!

  • Keep a toolbox in the back of your truck, stocked full of cooking utensils, silverware, trash bags, condiments and other essentials that are easy to forget when rushing to the game. Having these items available to you without having to pack them each time will save you a ton of time.
  • Cut up and prepare all of your fixings beforehand—shape your burger patties and refrigerate between wax paper sheets, cut up all lettuce, tomato and onions so that they’re ready to go before you head to the game. Pack all of your perishable items into a cooler with plenty of ice, and load it into your Ram.
  • Throw a large plastic bin into the back of your Ram to bring back used dishes and trash that may not have made it to a garbage can. Fill an old laundry detergent jug with water to use as a hand sanitizing station.
  • Keep a metal bucket in the back of your Ram to throw potentially hot grilling ashes into, rather than leaving them in the grill or on-site.
  • Buy an inexpensive set of plastic drawers and keep them in the back of your truck. Keep the drawers stocked full of essentials like cooking spray, aluminum foil, plastic cups or utensils, and paper plates.

Keeping all of these items in the back of your Ram might not seem ideal, but, with a cover on the bed of your truck, you’ll hardly even know they are there. Visit us online to discover bedcovers and liners to get your Ram ready for football season

Make Your Car Buying Experience Stress-Free with These Car Buying Tips

Car shopping can be a stressful time for anyone. Not knowing what money you’ll get for your current trade-in, not knowing what your payments will look like, getting used to driving your new car and rid of the new-car jitters, and even just transferring your tags can make even the most stress-free person feel overwhelmed.

Here at Waldorf Dodge, the experience of our customers when they come in to make the second largest purchase decision of their lives is the most important. We want you to enjoy your experience, and leave the worrying to us.

Waldorf Dodge - August 26

Here are a few great tips on the car-buying process to keep in mind when you’re ready to buy:

  • Calculate the payment that you can afford. Knowing exactly what your monthly budget is before diving into the process will help to make your purchase stress-free. Knowing exactly how much of a monthly payment you can afford will keep your mind at-ease.
  • Determine whether leasing or buying is the best option for you. Visit us online and check out the differences between purchasing and leasing, and the pros and cons of each scenario.
  • Find out the trade-in value of your current vehicle. If you know approximately what your current vehicle is worth, you’ll have a better idea of what your down-payment will be, which will help determine your monthly payments. Visit us online to value your trade-in value.
  • Contact your insurance carrier. Ask for a quote on the vehicle that you’re considering purchasing before you do-so, so that you know what your monthly insurance premium will be, before you make any final decisions.
  • Research models before you visit the store. Visit our website to research the vehicle of your choice before you buy, and determine what features are the most important to you, before you begin the buying process.

When it’s time to come in for a test-drive, be sure to have the following items with you:

  • Driver’s License
  • Auto Insurance Policy Information
  • Registration for your current vehicle (if applicable)
  • Comfortable (and easy to drive in) Shoes
  • Glasses, contacts, or sunglasses (if needed)

When you’re ready to buy, contact us online to set up a test-drive. Your new car is calling your name!
