MyLincoln Mobile & Google Now App Offer Seamless Remote Vehicle Capabilities - 02/03/2015
MyLincoln Mobile and Google Now have joined together to offer seamless remote vehicle capabilities with help from an embedded modem available on the 2015 Lincoln MKC and MKZ, and coming soon to the 2016 Lincoln MKX. The technology will give Lincoln owners the ability to start, unlock, lock, and locate their vehicle. One of the most impressive features, which is sure to be a favorite for those of us who face brutal winters, is the scheduled remote start.
Remote starts can be programmed for particular times and days of the week with help from the Google Now service, which delivers a Now card that will suggest a remote start based upon the user's calendar. This means, if you are expected to be at a meeting at 12:30 p.m., a Now card will alert you prior to your departure and will prompt you to start your vehicle remotely. Once the remote start option is selected, the vehicle will warm up or cool off according to the in-vehicle temperature settings.
"Now cards" in the Google app will serve as predictive aids based upon user's past and preferred searches as well as their calendar. Now cards also provide other information on other topics including weather, traffic routes, and sports scores. Both the MyLincoln Mobile and Google services are optional and notifications can be turned off if desired.

The Ford Mustang is Headed Abroad! - 01/20/2015
The Ford Mustang is headed abroad, but not without proper preparation! All Ford Mustangs traveling overseas are expected to undergo a series of steps that ensure compliance with the vehicle standards in other countries.

All vehicles are equipped with proper customs documentation and tracking so that Ford is able to track the Mustang's progress and delivery to their new home.
Ford Motor Company is not only thrilled to have this iconic vehicle join the lineup overseas, but also that the company is able to create more jobs because of it! Ford has employed roughly 3,000 employees at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan and has created an additional 100 jobs at the Port of Portland to support the exports to the Asia Pacific.

Have you seen the latest ads for the all-new 2015 F-150? If you haven't we are surprised because Ford Motor Company has worked hard to develop a comprehensive marketing plan to cover all sorts of communication platforms. Ford is thinking beyond just the television and radio ads; they're looking at the big picture and putting info about the F-150 in places that their customers will actually notice and obtain it. From commercials during football broadcasts to providing them with a variety of mobile content on their smartphones, the 2015 F-150 will reach truck drivers where they work and play.
A new year and a new marketing campaign for the 2015 F-150 requires more than just some catchy radio ads or TV commercials. Consumers need to see the F-150's leadership and innovation in real-life situations. This is why Ford and ESPN's "Sport Science" creator John Brenkus joined together to create "F-150 Tough Science"; webisodes that showcase different features of all-new F-150.

Ford SYNC and Life360 Make it Easy for Families Keep in Touch - 01/05/2015
Ford is the very first automaker to offer in-car use of Life360 - a popular family locator application that helps family members and close friends stay in touch throughout their busy day. This app allows users to see where their family and friends are with help of a private map, it allows them to communicate through one-to-one or group messages, and can even get them help in the state of an emergency. Since its initial launch in 2008, Life360 has acquired over 48 million users worldwide and will soon be available behind the wheel of Ford SYNC-equppied vehicles.
Life360 has been reconstructed and now features a Drive Mode for Ford SYNC AppLink users. Once the user's smartphone is connected to Ford SYNC, it will prompt the Drive Mode feature and will send a message to everyone in the driver's Life360 circle suggesting that they do not text the driver. Once the driver arrives to his or her destination and turns of the vehicle, a follow-up message will be sent to their circle. Drivers will also have the ability to check the most recent location of family members through the SYNC display or with voice commands such as "Where is Mom?". The system can then pinpoint the person's location and address on the map.

How To Get Your Vehicle Ready for Winter - 12/03/2014
- Equip your vehicle with fresh windshield wiper blades and refill your washer fluid. Endless amounts of ice, snow, and slush make their way onto your windshield this time of the year. By keeping your vehicle at its best you will be sure to have a clear view all winter long!
- Purchase rubber matts for your vehicle. These are a great investment because they will prevent moisture from seeping into your carpet and will help you avoid those awful white salt stains.
- Give your lights a second glance. While this may seem like common sense, sometimes we tend to forget how important it is to make sure our lights are working properly. Now that our days are getting shorter and darker, it is crucial that our lights are in prime condition.
- Look at the tank as half empty. This may sound a bit negative, but during this time of the year it is better to be safe than sorry! When temperatures drop below zero, low fuel tanks are more likely to freeze up. You don't want to get stuck out in the cold with an empty tank now, do you?
- Let's just say you weren't able to make it to the gas station and you find yourself stranded out in the cold. We must always prepare for these less than ideal situations, which is why we suggest keeping a Winter Safety Kit in your vehicle at all times. Your safety kit should includes things like a blanket, first-aid kit, a flashlight with extra batteries, snacks, a windshield scraper, and booster cables.
- Lastly, keep your vehicle up to date on regular routine maintenance. The technicians at the Don Tester Ford Lincoln Service Center are here to help answer all of your questions and take care of any of your vehicles needs! With our help, you vehicle will be ready to handle anything this winter!
Are you in search of the perfect vehicle no matter what the time of the year? Check out the 2014 Lincoln MKX or the 2015 Lincoln MKC! At Don Tester Ford Lincoln, we make the process of purchasing your car comfortable, exciting, and above all, honest.
