Get Your Car Summer Ready

Ford Service Maintenance

Winter is over and it’s time to get ready for summer. The Quick Lane® Tire & Auto Center at Westland Ford provides thorough inspection and maintenance to keep you safe and prepared for all those summer trips. No appointment is required, just stop on by when most convenient to get your car summer ready.

Tires

Tires can wear down and sometimes wear unevenly. A tire rotation can ensure even wear and extend your tires’ lifetimes. Your car may only need some simple maintenance tips, but if you do need new tires, Quick Lane® offers 13 brand-name tire choices like Goodyear and Michelin.

Oil

Regular oil changes can improve gas mileage and extend the life of your car. An oil change ensures a healthy engine, and Quick Lane® provides three different packages that can include tire rotations and battery tests.

Brakes

Brakes are vital to a safe drive for both you and those around you. Winter snow and salt can take their toll, so have your brakes tested for peak performance. If you hear squealing, it’s time to come in.

Cooling System

Warm weather can do a number on an already hot engine. Have the experts at Quick Lane® look over the cooling system and hoses so that your engine stays cool during the hot months ahead.

Windshield Wipers

Often overlooked, a worn-down pair of wipers can seriously impair driving when the weather is dangerous. Replace your wipers to make sure no storm can block your view.

For assistance in preparing you car for the summer season, feel free to reach out to our service team at Westland Ford.

Here’s How to Get Your Vehicle Ready for Summer

Cleaning Inside Of The Car

It’s April at long last, which means you’ve made it through another harsh winter and need to start thinking about how to get your vehicle ready for summer. Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Wash your car: Road salt does not wash off with rain. If you haven’t washed your car, truck, or SUV all winter, wash it now to prevent rusting. Keeping it clean and waxing it regularly will also help you retain value.
  • Get an oil change: Never put off an oil change, as it is essential for your vehicle’s engine health. If you’re cutting it close, schedule an appointment now at Westland Ford. Have your vehicle’s tires rotated while you’re here.
  • Test out your AC: Before the summer heat takes over, make sure your air conditioning system is working properly. If something seems to be amiss, have our technicians find and fix the problem before the heat becomes unbearable.
  • Replace your wiper blades: Even the best wiper blades don’t last forever. After a wet winter and an already wet spring, prioritize replacing your wiper blades for perfect visibility during summer driving.
  • Check your lights: Speaking of visibility, walk around the exterior of your vehicle to ensure all of the lights are working. Summer days are longer, which means we stay out longer and will likely be doing more night driving. Replace any bulbs that have burnt out.
