Come Test Drive the 2018 Jeep Compass

The 2018 Jeep Compass Trailhawk is one of the best compact 4x4 models in its class when it comes to off-road driving. In fact, the new Compass proudly bears a Trail Rated badge of approval.

The Compass can drive through 19 inches of water thanks to design features like water-proof electrical connectors, a high-placed air intake, and enhanced body sealing. It's also got an impressive 8.5 inches of ground clearance needed to navigate rough terrain. That's plenty to crawl over terrain with steep climbs and sudden dips.

What Does Your Transfer Case do for Your Vehicle?

A true 4WD vehicle, on the other hand, can be operated in two wheel drive or 4WD, and uses two differentials and a transfer case.

When the driver switches from two wheel to 4WD, the transfer case is engaged and sends power to both the…

Learn About Your Car's Belts and Hoses

Your car’s system works as a result of the belts and hoses connecting all the components together. When the key is initially turned, the battery supplies the charge that charges the electrical system and starts the engine. From there, the alternator takes over to keep everything charged.

Why You Should Keep a Full Gas Tank

Keeping your gas tank full, especially during the winter, may sound like advice there is no harm in ignoring, but neglecting your gas tank could cause costly damage. A lot of people keep their gas tank at least half full of gasoline, which helps the gas tank avoid condensation.

During cold winter months, even if you buy gas with ethanol, excess condensation in your gas tank could freeze and cause your fuel lines to freeze up. When that happens, your car won't start.
