A winter chill is in the air—but you’re not going to let it stop you from taking your Ford Explorer out on the next great adventure. That’s because you have the support of the expert service team here at Van Horn Ford of Lomira, and we’re dedicated to keeping drivers in the Fond du Lac, West Bend and Maryville areas driving safe all year long.

When it comes to getting your vehicle ready for winter, it’s all about being prepared. You’ll want to start with a winter emergency kit. In it, make sure you have the basic essentials for cold weather: blankets, water, and non-perishable foods, a flashlight with spare batteries and flairs, and an ice-scraper. If you want to take things to the next level, consider a spare set of clothing, a shovel, and a phone with a battery pack for calling a tow truck.

After you build your kit, you’ll want to bring your vehicle down to Van Horn Ford of Lomira, for a Ford parts and service dealership you can trust. We’ll start by checking your tires and changing them out for the season if you need. Then we’ll inspect your brakes, to ensure you have complete control over your vehicle in inclement weather. We’ll fill up fluids like oil, transmission, and steering fluid and we’ll make sure your windshield wipers are working right. Batteries, hoses, and belts are particularly susceptible to damage in the cold, so our team will check them to ensure you’re only heading out in the chilly season with the best parts available.

Now is the perfect time to get your Ford Explorer ready for the season. Visit Van Horn Ford of Lomira at 700 East Avenue in Lomira today.
