Check the Basics

Start with inspecting your vehicle’s fluids & filters. Check for adequate levels of engine oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and engine coolant. Ensure that all filters (air, oil, & fuel) are clean and in good condition. Next, check the battery for any signs of corrosion and test its charge. Then, inspect your tires for wear and tear, and don't forget to check the spare tire as well. Don’t have the time to do all these yourself, stop by our Mopar Express Lane and enjoy a complimentary multi-point inspection with your vehicle service.

Inspect Your Cooling System

With the summer heat, ensuring that your engine doesn’t overheat is crucial for a stress-free roadtrip. Bring your vehicle into our service department and have our factory trained technicians give you the peace of mind of knowing that your car’s cooling system is in tip-top shape.

Inspect Air Conditioning System

No one wants to be stuck in a vehicle without air conditioning on a hot summer day, so it’s in your best interest to have your car’s A/C system inspected before hitting the road. If you’ve noticed strange noises or odd smells coming from your vents, book a service appointment and have us inspect it for you.

Check Your Brakes & Suspension

Your safety depends on reliable brakes and suspension. While your vehicle is at our service centre, request for the brake pads and rotors to be inspected, and replaced if necessary.
