All Star Ford’s Winter Driving Tips

ASF

Warm Up Before You Head Out! – All Star Ford

Making sure you and your vehicle are prepared for the colder driving conditions is so critical! The first thing you need to do before the colder temperatures arrive is to schedule your routine maintenance appointment. A routine maintenance appointment will ensure your vehicle is in tip-top shape before heading on that holiday road-trip! In addition to your routine maintenance appointment, get your headlights, break lights and heater/defroster checked to ensure everything you will need for the colder months ahead is working properly!

If you are parking your vehicle outside, you will most likely have ice on your windows and windshield. Allow yourself an additional five to ten minutes every morning to let your vehicle warm up and defrost your windshield. Letting your vehicle to warm up in the cold mornings will allow your engine and oil to start working and warming up before you hit the gas pedal. This will also give your defroster time to warm up and melt off that think layer of ice allowing your windshield wipers to take a break from getting too beat up. Allowing your vehicle to warm up in the mornings will give you a much smoother ride, plus who does not love a warm and toasty vehicle to get in?!

Safe driving during the winter months does not have to be difficult!  These are just a few tips All Star Ford recommends during the winter months for safe driving! Schedule a service appointment with us so we can get you back on the road and headed to your holiday get-together!

This week, we’d like to share a 5-star review from a very satisfied customer of All Star Ford!

My Review of All Star Ford:

I brought my car in (2015 mustang) to have the oil changed & also asked if they could check the right back passenger tire because the sensor was giving a false reading about the air pressure in the tire. The service department was very prompt in taking my car at the time I was scheduled & was very courteous and knowledgeable. I will always use All Star Ford in Denham Springs, LA. They also reminded me of a recall on my car & that I will need to bring it back in at the first part of next year.

Fall Family Events in Baton Rouge

Fall is in full swing and that means cooler weather and more time outside! We know how stir crazy the kiddos can get after being at school all day! They just want to go ride their bikes and play basketball outside, but then they get tired of doing the same old thing. That’s when it’s time to load up the family and go do some fun activities and festivals! We have complied a list of some of our favorite Fall Family Events to do in the Baton Rouge and surrounding areas! These activities are all kid friendly, inexpensive (some even being free!), and fun activities that are sure to bring the family together this fall season!

Corn Maze Saturdays at Burden

The LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens puts on its annual Corn Maze festivities! The whole family is sure to enjoy this event during Louisiana’s most beautiful months! Enjoy tons of activities such as the petting zoo, enjoy a hayride, try the giant sling shots, climb the straw mountain and more!

The LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens also has an event called Night Maze and Bonfire on Saturday, October 29 starting at 10 AM and ending at 9 PM. Enjoy bonfires, s’mores, music and more! Dress the kiddos up in their costumes and have a night to remember!

Fall Art Crawl

Businesses along Main Street in Zachary and surrounding areas downtown invite artists to display their fine art to sell and open their doors to the public for approximately 3 hours on the Friday night of the event. There will be live music at various locations throughout the route as well! The purpose of Fall Art Crawl is to stimulate economic growth in our local businesses, promote the sales of local artists, and raise funds for year-round arts programming. Although this event is in Zachary, we wanted to include it because it supports locals throughout the area!

Washington Parish Free Fair

Although this event is in Franklinton, we had to add it to our list mainly because it is such a fun event and it’s free! Load the kiddos up for a day trip to Franklinton for the largest parish/count free fair in the country and the second oldest fair in Louisiana! There are tons of activities for all kid ages such as McDonald’s Farm, stage shoes and a variety of agricultural and livestock exhibits!

As you can tell, we love fall! There are tons of fun, inexpensive and engaging activities to do in the Baton Rouge and surrounding areas! So get out there, enjoy the beautiful fall weather and make some memories that will last a lifetime! If you and your family go to any of these events, make sure to take pictures!

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!
