  • What happens when you "ride" your Jeep's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Jeep tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small.
