Have a Game Plan For Fall Service

With fall quickly approaching, it is important to have your vehicle ready for the chilly temperatures ahead. Although it does not snow or get too terribly cold here in South Louisiana, you still need to have your car service and ready for the fall weather that will soon be upon us! All Star Ford has compiled a few tips and recommendations in order to get your vehicle in tip-top shape before the season changes!

Wiper Blades

  • Replace Wiper Blades

The purpose of wiper blades is to completely clear the windshield. Cracked or worn blades won’t do an adequate job. Check the blade’s rubber to ensure it is flexible and operate the wipers to see that the blades clear the glass. Replacing worn out wiper blades will ensure your safety when driving on those wet days!

  • Check the Heater/Defroster 

Driving with an improperly working heater isn’t fun or safe during the cold winter months. Driving with fogged-up windows is an accident waiting to happen. Check front and rear window defrosters to ensure they are properly heating. If necessary, have heater and defroster systems repaired!

  • Check under the hood

Looking under the hood will allow you to identify any obvious signs of wear or items that need replacing or fixing. Look for leaks, cracks or loose clamps in the cooling system and squeeze the hoses and replace any that are spongy-feeling or brittle. Inspect the underside of drive belts for fraying and replace as required. If you’ve noticed any engine noises, experienced sputtering or other engine problems, have one of our highly trained technicians thoroughly inspect the engine and make any necessary repairs!

These are just a few things All Star Ford suggests you check before the fall season rolls around! Taking care of your vehicle and routinely getting it serviced will ensure your vehicle will last a lot longer! Make sure to schedule your service appointment, and view all of our Service Specials!

WE ARE #LOUISIANASTRONG!

Louisiana Strong Graphic

The flooding in South Louisiana that has taken place on August 13th has impacted thousands of people right here in our home town. Thousands of Louisianans are coming together to help strangers evacuate their homes and bring them to shelters. Families have been ripped apart, homes have been flooded to the rooflines with water and cars have been flooded and lost in 10 foot waters. But this will not stop the citizens of Louisiana. We will come out stronger than ever all while helping each other out more than ever. Here at All Star, we pride ourselves in supporting our local communities and truly believe that together we the people of Louisiana are an “ALL STAR FAMILY.”

Back to School for Your Car Too!

Back to School Road Sign with Dramatic Clouds and Sky.

Although it may still feel like summer time outside, back-to-school time is right around the corner. August is always a busy month for parents and kids. Parents are trying to squeeze in last minute vacations and the kids are wanting to play with their friends all day! One item that is not usually on the top of the to-do list when heading back to school is your vehicle maintenance. Whether you’re attending high school, heading back to college or you’re the chauffeur for your family, your vehicle is going to need a little TLC before heading back to school and work!

Keep Up with Basic Maintenance

Make sure to complete simple maintenance tasks like oil changes and tire rotations. Check all the fluid levels and top them off if necessary including brake fluid, transmission fluid and coolant. If you can’t remember the last time you changed your wiper blades, you might want to invest in some now before rain’s fall takes its toll. While these are simple, minimal maintenance items, they will extend the life of your vehicle and keep it functioning properly!

Check the Lights

This is a good time to get your kids involved in the preventive maintenance checklist review. Have him or her get in the car and turn on the headlights, turn signals and emergency flashing lights as you walk around the vehicle to make sure they are working. Check the brake lights by having him or her press the brake pedal, too. Vehicles can have many different types of bulbs and they have varying lifespans, according to Firestone. Inspect your vehicle regularly to ensure your lights are working properly.

Up-To-Date

Before your college-bound kiddo hits the road, make sure their vehicle has an up-to-date inspection sticker, car registration, driver’s license and an insurance card. At most colleges, these are the things your child will need in order to purchase a parking tag to be able to park on campus. This may be tedious to check and update, but these are vital things in order to send your child on the road to college!

Make sure to schedule a service appointment with one of our certified technicians that will be able to service your vehicle and get you back on the road! Doing routine maintenance on your vehicle will not only ensure your safety on the road, but it will also prolong the life of your vehicle!

My Review of All Star Ford: 

After going to several BR dealerships and not being treated like a serious customer, I decided to venture outward. As soon as I walked in Ben came right over, introduced himself and began to ask what I was looking for. We discussed what I was looking for and we proceeded onto a test drive. He took the time to explain a lot of the features of the truck while on the drive and even after he continued to show me all of the great features of the truck and how they worked. When the truck was a little outside of my budget he worked with and for me and found me another truck, and now I have exactly what I wanted all thanks to him. If you are in the market for a new or used car talk to BEN :) He was GREAT!!! Thanks again BEN!

5 Vehicle Tips for a Safe Summer Road Trip

5

Whether you are heading to the beach with friends, taking a road trip with your family, or commuting back and forth to work, it is important that your vehicle is ready and properly prepared for the summer months. That is why All Star Ford has compiled a list of vehicle tips to ensure that you will stay safe this summer!

Get your Vehicle Serviced

Before you get on the road, get your vehicle serviced. Regular maintenance such as oil changes, battery checked and tire rotations will go a long way towards preventing breakdowns. If your vehicle has not been serviced according to Ford’s recommendations, schedule a maintenance checkup with us right away! You can schedule a service appointment by clicking here!

Check your Tire Inflation

Proper tire inflation is always important for good gas mileage and safe tire wear. But in the summer months, it’s especially important to keep your tires running cool with the right amount of pressure to avoid a dangerous blowout. Use Ford’s recommendation found inside your driver’s door jamb to find out the proper level for your tire pressure. You should also visually inspect your tires for irregular wear, low tread, and other problems.

Avoid Overloading your Vehicle

If you’re headed out on a road trip, you may be ready to throw lots of luggage and gear on top and in the back. Be careful not to exceed your vehicle’s acceptable load limit. Check your driver door jamb to find out how much weight your vehicle can hold.

Avoid the Heat and Sun

Manage glare and heat. Keep sunglasses handy and use a sun shield beneath your windshield when parked to keep your car’s interior heat down. Also, you should never leave a child or a pet unattended in a vehicle. The summer sun can also dehydrate you during long roads trips so always travel with plenty of water!

Clean it Out!

Make sure your vehicle is cleaned out. The summer heat can melt or explode items in your vehicle that were once fine – until your car’s interior reaches triple digits! Disposable lighters, batteries, and aerosol cans can be a hazard in a hot car. You should also watch out for messy items like chocolate and crayons.

These are some great tips to remember if you are about to take a long road trip, or just for your daily commutes to work and doing errands! Summer time is a great chance to spend some much needed time with family and friends, but always remember these tips to stay safe this summer and you will be ready for any adventure thrown your way!
