As the thermostats climb higher and higher, the Ford cars at our Ford Utica, NY dealership are getting hotter and hotter. Don’s Ford knows that the secret to preventing your Ford vehicle’s interior from becoming an oven is to be as smart and as proactive as possible, and we want to share a little bit of what we’ve learned about keeping your car cool.

The cooler you can make your car’s cabin, the easier it’ll be for your Ford truck or Ford SUV’s air conditioning to reduce your interior temperature to something manageable. To that end, try and find the shadiest spot you can to park your car during the heat of the day, even if that means parking slightly farther away from your destination than you normally would. Put a sun shade in your front and rear windshields – they have a special reflective surface that reduces the amount of heat your vehicle’s cabin gets from the sun’s rays. Get a window fan – they do a great job of making sure that air in the cabin of your 2019 Ford F-150 stays moving.

These tricks are all helpful, but in the end, the AC unit is what’s going to keep you cool after you fold up all the gimmicks. So making sure that’s ship-shape is vital before all of the above. The best way to make sure of that is to skip the “ Ford service near me ” web search and just come down to our Utica, NY Ford service department, where our specially-trained team can make sure your Ford car is going to stay cool all summer, and then some.
