As we get ready to head into a new season, many drivers are visiting our Ford dealership near Rogers City, MI to ask us what they should do to get their vehicle ready for summer. Preparing your car for summer is a process that’s sometimes referred to as “summerizing.”

When you think about the things you do to winterize your car at the end of fall, it makes sense that prepping your car for the upcoming season at the end of spring is called summerizing, doesn’t it? Like winterizing, summerizing involves a mix of tasks that you can perform on your own and things you should let our factory-trained technicians take care of. For the tasks you do, remember that you can get all the supplies you need in our Ford parts center.

The first thing you should do is take a look at your windshield wipers. If they’re cracked or showing other signs of wear, you should stop by so we can install new ones. You should also wash your car thoroughly and apply a coat of wax. Checking your tire pressure is a good idea, too.

When you’ve decided what you want to do to summerize your automobile, it’s time for you to bring your car into our Ford service center so our talented technicians can get to work. Our technicians will perform a multi-point inspection and fix any problems they encounter. They can also get your car caught up with any routine maintenance it needs. Our technicians will even take care of the little things, such as topping off your vehicle’s fluids.

If you decide to wait at our Ford dealership while we work on your vehicle, be sure you inquire about any updates that are available for your automobile’s technology features. If you don’t wait in our comfy waiting area, be sure you give us a call at your earliest convenience to ask about available updates.
