How to Tell if You’re Due for Car Service

Properly maintaining a vehicle is a priority for every driver who intends on staying on the road for years to come. Unfortunately, keeping up with your car can be difficult, especially if you have a busy lifestyle. On the upside, there are a couple of tell-tale signs you’re due for service. Trust us here at Friendly Ford; here’s how to tell if you’re due for car service!

  • Dashboard Lights – The dashboard warning lights aren’t just for show. Those lights indicate that there’s a problem in some part of the car and it should be dealt with sooner rather than later. There are some lights that mean you should pull off the road and turn off the car to avoid damaging the mechanical parts. Other lights simply mean minor things, like low tire pressure. Consult your owner’s manual for more information on warning lights.
  • Feel – If your car’s ride feels bumpy or rough, consider having it checked by a professional technician. Before you head to the dealership, check your tire pressure to see if that’s the problem. If your tire pressure is low, inflate your tires. Stop in at the dealership if the ride is still rougher than normal.
  • Sound – Any odd noise coming from under the hood isn’t good. There’s little need to tell most drivers that if they hear something unusual, like a bang or clang, under the hood, stop the car and contact the service department immediately.

How Many Rushing Yards Will Jeremy Langford Have? Guess and Win Prizes!

Are you a football fan—more specifically, a Chicago Bears fan? If you are (and you should be), you already know who Jeremy Langford is. The 24-year old was drafted last season and racked up a good amount of rushing yards. With the 2016 season still young, we here at Friendly Ford have decided to give back to the community through a little game on Facebook.

Guess the Rushing Yards – Jeremy Langford

Each week, those who like our page will have the opportunity to guess how many rushing yards Langford will get in that week’s game. The person who guesses the closest number to the exact number of rushing yards that Langford earns that game can win a free oil change.

The rules are fairly simple. First, your guess can’t go over. Second, all guesses have to be in before the game starts. Finally, the tiebreaker will go to the person who stated their guess first.

Although Langford is currently out due to a severely sprained ankle, we here at Friendly Ford are ready to continue giving out freebies to those who guess right once he returns to the field!

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for other giveaways, discounts, and contests! You could win something big. Last summer, for example, the grand prize of our Endless Summer Giveaway was a choice between a Hawaiian vacation for two or a trip to Orlando for a family of four.
