A little winter weather isn’t going to stop you from using your Ford 150 to the fullest, building bigger projects and heading out on epic adventures. That’s why now is the perfect time to bring it down to Van Horn Ford of Lomira, your dealership serving the Fond du Lac, West Bend, and Maryville areas to ensure it’s as safe and secure for the winter roads as possible.

There are lots of ways to winterize your Ford F-150. To start, we recommend putting together an emergency weather kit with medical supplies, non-perishable food, water, blankets, flashlights, and flares. If you want to go even further, consider adding a shovel, a spare set of clothing, an emergency phone, and battery pack and kitty litter or sand for managing traction on icy roads.

And then you’ll want to bring your Ford F-150 down to our service center. We’ll start by checking out the systems particularly susceptible to damage or wear in the cold weather. Tires, for instance, lose pressure when temperatures drop and your car’s battery can also lose up to 50% of its capacity in weather below freezing. Belts and hoses and other rubber components will also be inspected for signs of existing wear or damage exacerbated by the cold weather that can be addressed right away. We’ll also ensure all your fluid levels are high, your tire treads are safe, and your brakes work well.

Drive with peace of mind this winter no matter what the weather may bring when you make Van Horn Ford of Lomira the Ford parts and service dealership you turn to first. Schedule an appointment online or bring your Ford F-150 down to 700 East Avenue in Lomira today.
