Tires at Bustard Chrysler Listowel

Do I need winter tires?

Whether or not we want to admit it, it’s that time of year again! Winter is just around the corner. The Service department here at Bustard Chrysler Listowel is busy preparing for the impending tire rush that comes with the colder temperatures, so be sure to book your tire changeover appointment as soon as possible!

We get a lot of questions about whether or not to purchase winter tires or use all-season tires year round. The answer is simple. Winter tires are vital in Canada’s cold, harsh climate if you want to stay safe on the roads!

Don’t get us wrong, all-season tires are great – for about three seasons (if we had it our way, we’d call them three-season tires!). Save for some performance vehicles, most vehicles are fitted with all-season tires before they leave the factory. They offer versatile performance, and are designed to perform in a wide variety of conditions, including wet roads and light winter driving. However, we all know that there is no such thing as light winter driving in Canada, particularly here in Listowel! In order to perform in so many varying conditions, all-season tires offer a compromise between some summer and winter performance capabilities. They won’t provide the same grip and sharp handling of a summer tire, nor will they handle the extreme weather conditions winter tires are built for. All-season tires are a great option for those who live in moderate climates that do not encounter much extreme cold, ice, and snow, but they will not perform well on thick snow and ice.

Having the right tire is vital to ensuring your safety on the roads during the winter months. Winter roads, particularly in the Listowel area, are unpredictable. Winter tires provide additional traction so you can maintain control in snowy and icy conditions, and keep you and your passengers safe!

Bustard Chrysler Listowel sells tires for all makes and models. Check out our handy online tire store to price out your new winter tires. If you buy three tires, we’ll even give you the fourth FREE! Whether you are looking to have your winter tires mounted on your summer rims, or changover your tires altogether, Bustard Chrysler Listowel is here to help. You can book an appointment online, or call us at (519) 291-1900!

How do Active Grille Shutters work on the 2019 Ram?

The new RAM 1500 is impressing across the board. With new features, plus redesigns of the features you have come to know and love, RAM has really done it this time!

Did you know that RAM re-tooled the Active Grille Shutters for the all-new 2019 edition?

Active Grille Shutters have been taken to a new level in the 2019 model. They help streamline air flow around the truck at higher speeds, while also ensuring the engine gets the air it needs to offer premium performance. Active Grille Shutters on the 2019 RAM will open and close depending on factors like vehicle speed, engine coolant temperature, and AC requirements. When you’re cruising down the highway, the shutters may close to minimize turbulence in the engine area. This allows air to flow smoothly around the 2019 RAM 1500. Alternatively, when towing in the heat or travelling uphill, the shutters can open to allow more air to reach the engine, allowing the truck to maintain power!


Active Grille Shutters on All-New 2019 Ram 1500. See us at Bustard Chrysler Listowel today!
Active Grille Shutters on All-New 2019 RAM 1500.


In addition to reducing air resistance and improving overall aerodynamics, Active Grille Shutters can increase efficiencies during warm-up and defrost time by providing the engine with the correct amount of cool or warm air!

Active Grille Shutters are just one part of the incredible all-new 2019 RAM 1500 package. This truck delivers great value, and Bustard Chrysler Listowel is proud to be Listowel’s RAM dealer! Whether you’re looking for a New RAM or a Used RAM in Listowel and the surrounding areas, Bustard Chrysler Listowel has got you covered! To learn more about Active Grille Shutters, or any of the all-new 2019 RAM’s great features, don’t hesitate to email or call Bustard Chrysler Listowel today!

What’s New With the Dodge Journey?

Each year your favorite makes and models of vehicles come out with new features, new designs and new price points. This means that the 2018 Dodge Journey will look a bit different than a Journey from previous years. The longevity of many Journey features make it a solid vehicle that is the best choice for many, but there are some new feature that we can show you when you visit the dealership. We can also help you get the right financing for this cost-effective vehicle.




The third row of seats is now standard on the Journey, meaning that you don’t have to opt for a more expensive trim package to carry your whole group around town. The vehicle itself is not much bigger than previous models, but it offers more room as a standard feature instead of an optional one. This makes it easier to afford the seating that you need. Because the Journey is classified as a full-sized SUV and has plenty of room to take your family on a road trip.




Bustard Chrysler Listowel can help you find the right trim package for the Journey or for other vehicles to fit the standard of luxury you want from your vehicles. Do you want Blu-tooth connectivity? Do you want a back-up camera? How about three-zone temperature control? Each of these features is available on the Journey and on other vehicles we have on the lot. This can make it easier to find the luxury and comfort level that you are looking for.


The 2018 Dodge Journey can offer you the size and luxury that you are looking for at a price that is in your budget. By visiting the dealership, you can get our help to find the right trim package and financing options. We can also show you all the bells and whistles you can get on the Journey and other vehicles.
