4 Ways to Prepare Your Vehicle For Summer

  1. Give your vehicle a thorough clean on the interior, making sure to vacuum and wash floor mats, vacuum the seats and carpet, clean cup holders and dust the interior dash. Or, if you’d rather let professionals take care of the manual labor, check out our detailing packages!
  2. Check the tread on your tires and make sure there is enough to make it through the summer. While you’re at it, check tire pressure and refill if necessary.
  3. Check fluids for the transmission, engine oil, coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid, windshield washer fluid and air conditioner coolant. If you’d like professionals to handle this part, schedule a service appointment at Kimber Creek Ford.
  4. Give your vehicle a solid wash and wax. Once again, our detailing packages address this step. It is important to give your vehicle a coat of wax to protect from UV rays, bugs, bird droppings, tree sap and more.
