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!

steerthescript-hdr2

Lincoln Motor Company will unveil its first ever Super Bowl ad Feb. 3rd, 2013!  This is the first-ever commercial written entirely through social media.   Jimmy Fallon asked his followers via twitter to tweet responses to his questions about road trips full of unexpected and exciting events to create a script!

Over a three-day period in December of 2012, twitter followers were asked to share their most outrageous road trip experiences within 140 characters. The best contributions were chosen from more than 6,000 tweets to create a 30-second spot that will run during the third quarter of the big game.  The official full-length #SteerTheScript commercial stars RevRun, Wil Wheaton, Emmitt Smith, five original tweets, a few alpacas, and the new MKZ!

To find out what’s next you can watch the 90-second teaser available on SteertheScript.com but the journey isn’t over!  The final cut will air this Sunday during the Super Bowl when the Baltimore Ravens battle the San Francisco 49ers in New Orleans, LA Feb. 3rd, 2013.  Enjoy the commercial & Super Bowl 47Lexington Park Lincoln wants to know what you think!  Let us know!
