Maintaining Your Mid Rivers Dodge Durango.

Your new Mid Rivers Dodge Durango is, in some trim levels, the equivalent of a seven-passenger Dodge Challenger. Available in a wide range of models with engines ranging from the Durango SXT with its 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, the Durango R/T with its 5.7-liter Hemi, or the Durango SRT with 6.4-liter Hemi, it can haul the kids, dog and some serious butt at the same time. 

Your Dodge Durango Owner's Manual has almost all of the information needed to properly care for and maintain your new vehicle. Still, it's always a great idea to consult the Automotive Experts at Mid Rivers Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and Ram, who are ready to advise you on the proper care and feeding of your new Mid Rivers Dodge Durango.

Brake Pads, Etc.: One of the most important pieces of safety equipment on your Dodge Durango, brake pads, rotors, and calipers are three parts of kit that work together to bring your Durango to a safe stop after a spirited run. After several years of service, it is perfectly normal for the pads and rotors to start wearing down, causing them to become less effective. Eventually, they might even begin to squeak because of metal-to-metal contact from the pads to the rotors. Aggressive driving styles can shorten the life of both, but your mileage may vary. Your Mid Rivers Dodge service technician recommends an inspection every time you bring your Durango in for an oil change.

New Wipers: As tough as your Mid Rivers Dodge Durango may appear, neatness counts after all, and it just doesn't cut it to show up with a swirly, streaked windshield that lets the world know you don't care how you look. Changing to a fresh pair of Mopar-approved wipers every six months insures a sparkling windshield after each sweep from left to right. Eventually, due to heat, humidity, and even cold temperatures, wipers will tend to become less effective over time. Your Mid Rivers CDJR service department will have the proper wipers for your Dodge Durango on hand so you can be on your way in no time. A Napleton Pro Tip: Streaky wiper tracks, water spots or audible squeaks, are a good indication it's time for replacement.

Fluidic Motion: Oils, and other lubricants are what keeps your Mid Rivers Dodge Durango operating smoothly. Transmission Fluid. Brake Fluid. Wiper Fluid. Coolant. Oil. They are essential to the proper operations of your Dodge Durango but eventually can lose their effectiveness. That's why it's a great idea for a monthly check on your Durango's fluid levels to make sure you aren't "a quart low," Checking these essentials will make sure your Dodge Durango is ready to go within a moment's notice! Stop by our Mid Rivers service department to have one of our service techs top you off, even between oil changes. Call Mid Rivers CDJR for an appointment today.
Oil and Filters: Speaking of oil (yes we were, previously), your Mid Rivers Dodge Durango is engineered for a long life on the road. Although your Mid Rivers Dodge Durango probably rolled of the assembly line filled with conventional oil, it's fully capable of running with high-tech synthetics, too. Regardless of which solution you choose, we have it at our Mid Rivers Service Department. As specified in the Dodge Durango Owner's Manual, your vehicle has an Oil Change Indicator System which alerts you when it's time to change your oil and filter. So smart, the system notices your driving styles and adjusts the oil's life accordingly. If you tow, it should be changed sooner as detailed inside the Dodge Durango's owner's manual. Regardless, don't let the interval go longer than 12-months or 10,000 miles
Spark Plugs: Your Mid Rivers Dodge Durango receives its jolt from six or eight Mopar-Approved spark plugs with a life expectancy of 100,000-miles, but that doesn't mean they may never need replacing. Things happen, you know? But they are essential to your vehicle's operation. If you need them, we stock them, and we install them. Consult with your Durango Owner's manual and your Mid Rivers service advisor for more information today.

Alignment: Under optimal conditions, your Mid Rivers Dodge Durango will drive straight and true. But imagine driving down a straight piece of highway, and feeling it start to drift left or right. What then? If you are experiencing that, chances are good your Durango is in need of an all-wheel-alignment. The same phenomenon occurs under braking as well. In addition to being unsafe, if unattended it will also contribute to accelerated tire wear. Consult your owner's manual and your Mid Rivers Service Advisor for more information. A Napleton Pro Tip: Always rotate and balance your tires before settling down for an alignment. That way tire wear should equalize at all four corners of your Dodge Durango.

Transmission Maintenance: Your Dodge Durango is equipped with a modern, sealed automatic transmission, which doesn't require much in the way of maintenance.  Still, your Mid Rivers Dodge Durango owner's manual recommends changing the transmission fluid every 90,000 miles, or sooner if you subject your Durango to any towing or other high-stress situations like driving over mountain ranges. With care, your Dodge Durango gearbox will offer years of trouble-free service. For more information check your Dodge Durango's Owner's Manual and consult with your Mid Rivers Dodge service advisor.

Filtration: Air and fuel are the two most critical components that help to move your vehicle. Mopar-Approved air, oil and fuel filters control the flow and clear impurities before they have a chance to enter the engine. With a life expectancy of 30,000 miles, like a toothbrush they are easily replaced. If you live in more arid, dusty regions, your Durango Air Filter may require changing a bit sooner, but that's no biggie, right? Your Mid Rivers Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and Ram Service Department will stock the correct filters for your Durango.

Finally: Last time we checked, we didn't find it on any bestsellers list, but reading through your Dodge Durango Owner's Manual will provide a wealth of valuable tips and advice on how to get the most from your new investment. Your Mid Rivers Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and Ram service advisors are eager to offer you professional service that will keep your Northlake Dodge Durango running like new.
