Spring fever is upon us and summer is rapidly approaching.  And if you are considering staying home for the Break this is a great time to get your vehicle into Lexington Park Ford & Lincoln and take care of all you service needs before the summer!  There are great offers such as coupons and rebates on http://www.fordowner.com to take advantage of.  Due to current gas prices we all need to save money and  taking that family road trip is still a popular seasonal activity.  In addition to packing up a cooler, sunscreen, and your beach gear, taking the time to get some proper vehicle maintenance on your Lincoln, Ford, car, or truck, will make your road trip all the more pleasurable and carefree.  Here are just a few things you can do to get your vehicle in tip-top shape for that long-awaited for (or maybe even unexpected) road trip.

Check the tires – It’s crucial to check your tires after weather changes because tire pressure changes about 1 pound per square inch for every 10 degrees Fahrenheit change in temperature.There are plenty of Tire Offers Going on Now.  Just Click on the image!

Wiper blades – Windshield wipers take a beating during the winter weather – wiping away dirt, debris and salt and gravel spray. Make sure the blades are making full contact with the windshield and have not dried out. Click the image for offers!

Rotate tires – This should be done roughly every 5,000-10,000 miles and it can extend the life of your tires significantly by reducing wear.

Change oil and filter – Some car makers suggest changing to a heavier oil to help your vehicle’s engine perform more efficiently during warmer weather.

Change air filter – Your car’s air filter prevents dust and other debris from getting into the engine’s running parts, meaning less efficient use of gas and weaker engine performance.

Flush and fill cooling system. This is cheap insurance against engine failure. Experts recommend flushing every 2 years for most vehicles.

Check radiator and gas caps – Tight fitting caps on the radiator and gas tank are important. Radiator caps can corrode and deteriorate, so it’s a good idea to replace yours as often as you flush the cooling system.

Check battery and plugs – Make sure battery posts and connections are clean. Spark plugs fire as many as 3 million times every 1,000 miles.

Clean the interior – It’s easy to use your car or truck as a storage area for all kinds of things (including useless junk and garbage), especially in the cold months when you don’t feel like cleaning your car in the freezing cold. Take the time to de-clutter your car. It’s worth it.

So if you are still considering a Staycation this Spring Break?  Then why not stop by Lexington Park Ford & Lincoln to take care of all your Service Maintenance needs!

The MKC Concept Takes Form

Some simply see the car as a mode of transportation intended for traveling quickly between point A and point B, but ask automotive designers and they’ll share a wildly different opinion.

Rather than simple utilitarian transport, Murat Gueler, Lincoln Lead Exterior Designer, sees a complex form language much like the human proportion. As Gueler envisioned the recently revealed MKC Concept, he took in the

taut, organic shapes of an athlete’s muscular body to drive his imagination.

In our latest Artisans of Lincoln short film, we speak with Gueler about what inspires him most as an automotive designer, and he provides a detailed account of the MKC Concept creation.

While we uncover a sliver of the story in the film, if you’re interested in discovering more about the Concept, you can do so by visiting the MKC Concept page onLincoln.com.
