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?!

Winter Driving Tips

2015-12-07 ASF Winter Driving Tips

At All Star Ford, we take safety very seriously and that means we want you to be informed and prepared for any issues you may face as winter weather approaches. It may still be fall, but we are beginning to feel the effects of the coming season, so we compiled this list of a few Winter Driving Tips to help you conquer winter with confidence.

  • Never warm up a vehicle in an enclosed area, such as a garage
  • Make sure your tires are properly inflated
  • Do not use cruise control when driving on any slippery surface (wet, ice, sand)
  • Make sure your battery and charging system work properly
  • Remember that bridges and overpasses freeze up first
  • Any time your windshield wipers are on, your headlights should be on as well
  • Brake gently to avoid skidding or sliding
  • Stay alert, slow down, and stay in control

Our service team here at All Star Ford also suggests getting your vehicle inspected in order to adequately prepare for driving in winter weather conditions. Make an appointment to have your winter vehicle inspection done by one of our certified technicians by scheduling an appointment online here or give us a call at (225) 490-7629.
