Always Service with a Smile at All Star

Service Center at All Star Dodge Ram in MO

It takes more than a nice showroom, quality vehicles, strong inventory, and a friendly staff to be a great auto dealership. You also have to have a phenomenal service department! After all, if you buy a great car from a dealership, but then that dealership cannot properly service that vehicle – should you need an oil change or more substantial repair work – then you are going to be up a creek! The team at All Star does not want  that kind of a situation to happen to you, so they have provided all of their customers with factory trained and certified technicians in a top notch service facility to handle any and all of your repair needs.

Why is it important to have factory trained and certified technicians? – It is important that whoever is working on your vehicle know exactly what they are doing or need to do to perform the repair. Just because someone knows a lot about cars and how to fix them does not mean that they know all of the subtle nuances that contribute to the overall function of the vehicle. Wouldn’t you rather have someone repairing your Dodge Charger, that was trained by Dodge, the manufacturer, on a Dodge Charger, the specific model, using the latest tools and technologies, designed by Dodge for the Charger? We think the answer is absolutely yes! That is exactly what we want!

So many dealerships today just put a service center out there and claim that they do great work. At All Star Dodge Ram in MO, their service center was carefully thought out, designed, and executed to provide the very best service for the vehicles for whom they care. You deserve a top notch service center at a great dealership, you deserve All Star!

Don’t Skip Maintenance!

Service at All Star Dodge Ram in Missouri

We love our Dodge, Ram, Jeep, and Chrysler vehicles. They are fun to drive, they are comfortable to ride in, and they are just all-around great quality vehicles. But what happens if you don’t take car of your Dodge Ram vehicles, will they be ok? Is skipping maintenance a big deal? Let’s explore this today.

The long and short of it, is that you cannot skip auto maintenance. But there are some very big reasons why. Technology in cars like electronic fuel injection and electronic control units certainly have simplified servicing and “tuning” a car if the right computer equipment is used but they have also made the process more involved for the mechanic (technician) who must be trained to a higher level.

There is much more to servicing a modern car than simply giving it a “grease and oil change.” The old $35 dollar grease and oil might have passed muster a decade ago but is in most cases insufficient attention for a new car with its many sophisticated systems.

“Car servicing can involve up to 50 or more component and system checks and adjustments. And despite complaints about the cost from some car owners, it’s worth the money. Maintaining the engine in peak economy, performance and emissions condition requires electronic monitoring and fine adjustment according to the diagnostic computer read out.”-carsguide.com

A correctly serviced and tuned engine will have a longer, more economical service life than one that is run into the ground with minimal or inappropriate attention. It can also pre-warn or potentially major problems with the engine and transmission.

The best offense is always a good defense. To get your Dodge Ram vehicles properly cared for, head to All Star in Missouri. Their service department is ready to serve you!

Avoid These Auto Repair Shop Scams – Part 2


Yesterday, the Saint Charles area Dodge cars experts at All-Star Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram introduced you to just a few of the auto repair shop scams that cost car owners every year.  Today, let’s take a look at more!

  • Every car owner has to have the tires replaced on their vehicle sometime and this is when some unsuspecting victims get scammed.  Some shop owners who think a car owner is very unaware of how car repairs work, will put old tires on a car and pass them off as new.  To avoid this practice, become aware of what your current tires look like before you take them in for replacement.  You can even go as far as taking pictures of the old tires for comparison purposes.
  • Air filters are another common area where mechanics will get a car owner to do a replacement way too soon.  An air filter is made to last around 15,000 miles or one year for the average driver and is often something you can purchase and replace yourself.
  • Sometimes a mechanic will suggest an engine flush service to rid your engine of build-up and sludge.  But unless you are neglecting to have your oil changed regularly or are just generally hard on your engine, it really isn’t a necessary task.
  •  Don’t get sold on fluids that are suppose to last the lifetime of the vehicle.  Whether marketed with the label or not, fluids need to be changed according to your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
  • If you drive a new vehicle and use good synthetic oil, changing your oil and filter every 3,000 miles in not necessary.  Don’t let the oil change sticker your mechanic shop puts on your windshield fool you into thinking so.

The team of mechanics at All-Star’s Dodge cars dealership near Saint Charles is here to help you will all of your repair and maintenance needs.  Give the shop a call today for your next service!

Tips For Storing Your Car During the Winter – Part 2

car under protection cover

Thank you for joining that All-Star team for more tips on storing your Dodge cars near North County for the winter!

Step 2 – Tires, Fluids, and Power

Keep these components of the vehicle in good shape with the following steps:

  • Inflate your tires to a higher pressure before storage.  This will allow the tires to loose some pressure over time due to temperature change.  Just be sure that you do not exceed the maximum pressure listed on the side of the tire and to set the pressures back to normal before taking the car out in the Spring.  If you have a tire that is leaking, it will need to be replaced before storing.
  • Instead of setting your parking brake and risking it becoming stuck, use wheel chocks or blocks if you are worried about your car rolling.
  • If you area storing for more than three months, it is smart to use a fuel stabilizer.
  • Give your car a fresh oil change and filter before storing.
  • Top off all other fluids.
  • Once all your fluids are topped off and the fuel stabilizer has been added, take the vehicle out for a spin to circulate all of the new fluids.
  • Either remove your battery or connect it to a trickle charger or battery tender.

Step 3 – Choosing a Car Cover

The quality of your car cover should be a top priority.  If your car will be outside, make sure you get a cover that is waterproof and that will secure snugly around the vehicle.  This can be done by going for a model-specific cover instead of a universal cover.

Step 4 – Start It Up

This is a debatable step, but many like to start their car a few times while stored just to give it time to warm up to operating temperature and to move fluids through the system.  If you decide to do this, be sure to get your car back into operating shape by removing the cover completely and taking steps to undo what you did to prep for storage.  Also be sure to get the car back into storage ready shape before putting the cover back on.
