What is Contact Free Service?

As always, Prime Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram continues to follow the CDC sanitation guidelines to keep you and our team safe. To ensure this, we are using Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), such as masks, gloves, and interior car coverings on the floor, seats, and steering wheel. In addition, we continue to practice social distancing and communicate safety practices, like hand-washing.

What Are The Benefits of Frequent Service?

First, frequent service will improve your vehicle's overall safety. When you bring your vehicle in for routine maintenance, our expert service technicians will examine some of the other components of your sedan, van, SUV, or truck. Getting regular service will ensure that your vehicle will perform at its best- and who doesn't want a confident driving experience?

How Do I Know When It's Time to Service My Vehicle?

We recommend you schedule a full-service appointment at least once a year. Service frequency varies and depends on how much you drive around Old Orchard Beach, how well your vehicle is maintained, weather conditions, and more. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, please don't wait to set up your service appointment. Your safety is our top priority.

How Often Should I Get an Oil Change?

You can get an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, but newer vehicles can go 7,000 miles depending on the make and model. But if you are driving your car more than usual or if you hear increased engine noise, it is a good idea to schedule an oil change at our Watertown service department.

How Often Should I Check My Fluid Levels?

Engine oil, coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid, transmission fluid, and windshield washer fluid should all be checked regularly. It's a good idea to check these fluids every 5,000 miles, but our service technicians can check them for you when you come in for routine maintenance.

How Often Should I Change My Air Filter?

We recommend changing your air filter about every 20,000 miles or once a year- whichever comes first. If you drive a vehicle with a turbocharged engine, like a Dodge Challenger or Charger, you should consider changing it sooner. You can also check your air filter yourself by checking your vehicle owner's manual.

How Often Do I Need to Get My Brakes Checked?

Our Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram service experts recommend getting your brakes checked at least every 10,000 miles. If you notice anything out of the ordinary-such as squeaking or squealing noises or vehicle vibrations-we suggest bringing your car down to our service department as soon as you can. Don't put off brake maintenance or repairs.

When Should I Replace My Brake Pads?

Brake pads do wear out over time, especially because we depend a lot on our brakes for daily driving. Usually, brake pads should be replaced every 50,000 miles; this depends on the brake material and your driving habits.

When Should I Replace My Car Battery?

Factoring in your driving habits, how often you drive, and weather conditions, you should consider changing your car battery every 3 to 4 years. If it is taking you a long time to start your vehicle or if your vehicle's headlights are dim, then it may be time to replace your car battery.

When Do I Need to Get a Tire Rotation?

When it comes to tire rotations, we suggest getting one at least every 7,500 miles or every six months - whichever comes first. The best time to get a tire rotation is when you bring your car, truck, or SUV down to our service department for an oil change.

How Much Air Pressure Should I Put into My Tires?

The air pressure in your tires is measured in pounds per square inch or PSI. This number can range between 30 and 35 PSI,  depending on your manufacturer's recommendation. You can find your specific vehicle's PSI on a label inside your vehicle.

How Often Do Tires Need To Be Replaced?

Tire replacement typically varies, but generally they last between 35,000 to 60,000 miles. Again, this depends on your driving habits, tire rotations, tire size, and more. When you bring your vehicle in for an oil change, our technicians will be sure to check your tires and measure the tire tread depth.

At Prime Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we believe it's best to schedule a service appointment online or by giving us a call. That way, you can request the date and time that works out for you and your busy schedule.
