Also, they require regular care and maintenance. Here is how to make sure they work correctly when you need them. 

Always Defrost

Heavy snow and ice can cause wiper blades to stick or even snap if they freeze to the glass. The best protection against this is to get a remote starter - like the one that comes standard on the Jeep Cherokee Limited - so that you can take care of the defrosting before you leave the house. 

Never Wipe Dry Glass

The blades are designed for wet windshields. The only time you should use them without precipitation is when you clean your glass using wiper fluid. 

Replace Every Six Months

Wipers have a short lifespan, so replace them regularly. The recommended schedule is twice a year. You will notice skipping or smearing when it is time for new blades. 

Take Extra Care in the Winter

To avoid your wipers from freezing on the windshield glass, pull the blades away from the windshield. Doing so will extend the life of your wipers and make it easier to scrape away any ice and snow.

You can have the blades upgraded when you visit our Calgary service centre for an oil change or other regular maintenance. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

It is a full-time system, so it is always on and does not require activation, allowing you to confidently go anywhere and do anything. 

Here is a closer look at the unique traits of this powerful 4x4 drivetrain. 

Quadra-Drive allows you to choose from five different operation modes via the Selec-Terrain Traction Management System. Auto is for everyday commuting on regular paved roads, while the Sport, Snow, Mud/Sand, and Rock settings are for their respective driving conditions. If you like off-road adventures and challenges, Quadra-Drive is essential.

The system can also send torque to a specific axle or tire to prevent slippage on slick or rugged terrain. It can move up to 100% of the power to the wheel(s) with the most traction, ensuring that you'll always maintain maximum control of the vehicle. 

Help feed your passion for exploration behind the wheel of a Jeep. To learn more about the feature-rich 4x4 systems on the Grand Cherokee, contact our Calgary dealership today for a full spec review.

These tools include Guardian, which is a remote access app that works in conjunction with the Uconnect system.      

What can you do if your Jeep has this unique feature? 

Perhaps the most useful Guardian tool is remote unlocking. Using the Uconnect app on your phone, you can control access to your vehicle even if you are not nearby. This feature can be invaluable if you ever forget your keys, if your fob loses battery power, or if you need to provide a friend or family member access to the cabin. 

Remote lights and horn triggers, also activated by smartphone, can serve as a panic alarm or assist you as you try to find your vehicle in a crowded parking lot. 

Accident Response and Roadside Assistance services help you contact emergency or service personnel when you are in a collision or have a breakdown or flat tire. And finally, the Send and Go feature allows you to share destinations on a device nav app with your Uconnect system. 

Contact our Calgary dealership to learn more about which Jeep vehicles offer the Sirius Guardian app.
