Roadside Safety Advice for Every Motorist

Getting stranded on the side of the road is one of every motorist's worst nightmares. Here at Solomon Chrysler Jeep Dodge-Carmichaels, we believe preventative maintenance plays an important role in avoiding future disasters.

Preventative maintenance includes properly inflating tires, checking exterior lights and maintaining adequate fluid levels. Oil, transmission, fuel and air filters should also be inspected and replaced regularly.

Even the most well-maintained vehicle is vulnerable to a highway mishap. Drivers should familiarize themselves with the location of their spare tire and tire jack. Tools, road flares, antifreeze, a flashlight and a can of Fix-a-Flat can be stored in an emergency kit in the trunk. Remember to place road flares at least 100 steps from a disabled vehicle, and to distance yourself from oncoming traffic.

Stop by our service center and our experienced mechanics will make sure your vehicle is ready to go the distance.
