5 Tips on How to Get Your Ford Ready for Summer! Chicago IL

5 Tips on How to Get Your Ford Ready for summer! Chicago IL

5 Tips on How to Get Your Ford Ready for summer! Chicago IL

Cold temperatures, salt, and slush can all take a toll on your car and if you live in Chicago, you understand just how harsh the winter conditions get. With summer in full bloom, there’s no better time to give your car the makeover it needs to take on the warmer days ahead! Here are some key tips to help you get your Ford in tip-top shape.

Service Department

Tip #1: Check Your Fluid Levels Chicago IL

Tip #1: Check Your Fluid Level

While this should be done consistently, summer is an ideal time to ensure that all your fluids are at the proper levels. Refill the following fluids or stop into Golf Mill Ford to have a certified service technician take care of this for you!

• Windshield washer and coolant fluid
• Antifreeze
• Engine oil
• Brake fluid
• Transmission fluid

Tip #2: Replace Your  Windshield Wipers

Tip #2: Replace Your Windshield Wipers

Just how tires should be replaced for the warmer seasons versus colder seasons, so should your windshield wipers. Winter grime causes your car to work extra hard to operate at its optimum, so the least you can do is change out your wiper blades for the summer and fall.

Tip #3: Check Your Batteries, Wires and Plugs, Belts and Hoses

Frigid temperatures take the most abuse on these functions. In order to keep your Ford running as smooth and efficient as possible, these are only a few of the essentials that should be inspected thoroughly.

• Batteries- If your car battery is three or more years old, it is time to replace it. If you’re unsure and want some peace of mind, bring it into Golf Mill Ford to have one of our certified service technicians inspect your battery and potentially replace it for you.
• Wires and Plugs- Check for frayed or disconnected wires.
• Belts and Hoses- Warmer temperatures put more pressure on the belts and hoses which makes summer the best season to check if these are cracking or brittle.

Tip #4: Prepare Your Tires

The winter season can cause the most wear and tear on your tires. Hence the reason why all-season tires are not recommended. Instead, it is recommended to change out your tires for the fall and winter months versus the summer and summer season. Rubber and any other composite material tends to break down over time. In addition, tire pressure should also be inspected due to overinflation in warmer weather and deflation in the winter.

Tip #5: Give it a Thorough Wash and Inspection

Last but not least, summer is often associated with deep cleaning and general service maintenance check-ups. Winter grime gets the best of our cars so, visiting our knowledgeable and friendly service department at Golf Mill Ford will give you the thorough inspection you seek! In addition, we highly recommend washing your vehicle more thoroughly as salt and sand can cause your paint to rust. Scrub from the inside and out and don’t forget to wash the underbody!

Boy o boy did I have to work for that deal, but it was worth it. Came in looking for a vehicle with very specific qualities. They didn’t have what I wanted at the moment but they found it for me. Price want quite there at the beginning but we made it happen. Big thanks to Danilo for getting me a good deal and peace of mind.

I was driving through Niles on Saturday, May 25 when my cell phone hookup to my Ford Ecosport stopped working. It's a new car to me, and I didn't know what to do. I was also worried about it. I looked up the closest Ford dealer (I had recently purchased my car closer to where I live), and the kindest man, Jonathan, asked if I was there for service. I explained my problem, and he patiently spent the time needed to pair my phone to the car. It felt like a lifesaver. I asked if I could buy him lunch; he said no. I thanked him profusely, and said I would contact the dealership to praise his help. If he is representative of the kind of people who work with you, I will recommend you to anyone in your area. Thank you to Jonathan from a grateful woman.

My wife and I had an excellent experience with Golf Mill Ford. Mark Gurgone, our salesperson, was very likable and extremely helpful without being overly aggressive. The dealership also owns other dealerships in the area, therefore, we were able to purchase the exact car of our choice at a fair price. I highly recommend the salesman and the dealership.

Best deal!

I walked in and was greeted by David N. He was very personable and helpful. He listened to what I was there to accomplish and worked to get me a great deal and the car I wanted. I felt I had a person working with me to get me what I wanted not someone selling me. He did a great job and I am totally satisfied with my car and the process. Thank you David.

I needed a new car because mine was too old and the cold weather was coming. Walked in with my grandson, and met Andrew who was great! He showed me two different vehicles that fit my needs, and was able to give me a great deal on the one I chose. I will recommend Andrew and the Golf Mill team to any of my family and friends looking for a car! Amazing Service!

Great Job!
