It’s never a good idea to put off your car repairs for long, but our Gandrud Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM service staff still get a lot of questions about how long drivers can put off Chrysler repair tasks. We always encourage you to get your repairs taken care of as quickly as possible, but there is a little more to know about which repair tasks need to be done immediately.
Car Repair Urgency
Depending on what’s wrong with your Chrysler vehicle, there are some repairs you might be able to hold off on — but here are some you should never put off:
- Brake repairs: Most drivers know this, but it bears repeating — if you’re hearing grinding, finding that your brakes take longer to slow your car, or seeing other signs that your brakes or pads are worn, you don’t want to find out the hard way that you’ve delayed the repairs too long.
- Belt replacements: The timing and serpentine belts in your Chrysler vehicle are built to last a long time — but they also wear out and will eventually need to be replaced. Replacing a belt is a simple fix, but if one breaks when you’re on the road, it can leave you stranded and cause serious engine problems.
- Tires and wheel alignments: Whether it’s worn-down tires or misaligned wheels, you’ll extend the life of your vehicle and stay safer on the road if you take care of tire and wheel repairs right away. Just because it isn’t a roadside emergency doesn’t mean it can be put off.
