Here in Brentwood, CA, most of us are doing all we can to stay cool and protected from the heat this summer. But not everyone knows that cars need protection from the heat, too. High temperatures can damage part of your vehicle from the engine to the battery to the paint. There are a few simple measures you can take to prevent that damage and keep your vehicle running great even through the heat. Check out Ford's tweet below to learn more.

As you can see, there are some easy things you can do yourself, like refilling your coolant, checking your tire pressure and applying wax to the exterior. Other things like checking your alternator and your battery are best done by a trained technician. Here at Bill Brandt Ford we would be happy to help keep your vehicle in great shape for the summer.

Bring your Ford in to our service center to have one of our skilled technicians take a look at it. We will do everything we can to make sure it is in shape and ready to take on the rest of summer.
