Worn out tire treads reduce the performance of your car. It is essential that you regularly check the condition of your tires and replace them after covering more than 50,000 miles or when it is necessary.
Tires that are in good condition perform better on off-road since they have a better grip on wet, muddy and rocky roads. They also enhance the vehicle’s acceleration making it easier for you to enjoy a smooth ride. New tires take sharp corners better than worn out ones, and they also have an enhanced braking on both dry and wet roads. Replacing your worn-out tires with new ones will improve the fuel consumption of your car thus you will save on gas money.
You are welcome to visit us here at Marine Chrysler Dodge Jeep and Ram in Vancouver today for tire inspection by our expert team who will also replace your tires with new ones while you take a look at some of the cars in our showroom.

What is Horsepower?

In the eighteenth century, horses were commonly used to work fields, transport goods and to work in the coal mines. It was in one of these eighteen century coal mines that the term, horsepower, came into existence.
Inventor and engineer James Watt was looking for a way to compare the power of his new steam engine to the common work horse. He observed horses in the coal mine and created a math equation that showed that one horse could move 33,000 pounds one foot per minute. Watt coined the word, “horsepower” and used this in marketing his new engine.
Today, consumers use the term to compare one engine to another. The higher the horsepower, the more powerful the engine. Knowing how much horsepower a certain engine has, gives the customer an idea of the power of a vehicle without even having to do a test drive.
Visit Marine Chrysler Ram Jeep Dodge to learn more about how to put horsepower to work for you.

Why Your Vehicle Needs Windshield Wiper Fluid

Whether you’re planning a long trip or you just want to make sure your car is in great shape for your commute each day, it’s essential to have enough windshield wiper fluid.
The fluid is actually a detergent with solvents that thoroughly clean your windshield to get rid of stubborn dirt and water stains that can keep you from seeing clearly while you’re driving. The windshield wiper fluid is also effective for helping your windshield wipers to effectively clean snow, sleet and rain from your windshield, which is a must in bad weather.
When your car doesn’t have enough windshield wiper fluid, the other internal parts of your car will not be lubricated properly. This can affect the way your car functions and could lead to very expensive repairs. The next time you go to get your fluids topped off, be sure to ask one of our service technicians to check your windshield wipers as well to make sure they are in working order.
