Ford Shelby GT350 Leads The Pack For Precision Handling - 05/14/2015

Ford Shelby GT350 Leads The Pack For Precision Handling
2015 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350
NORWALK, Ohio. – It has been no surprise to the automotive industry how successful the 50th Anniversary Edition of the Ford Mustang is. What is truly surprising to not just the automotive industry but to automotive consumers as well, is the extremely upgraded handling of the Ford Shelby GT350. This recently advanced suspension tuning on the Shelby GT350 and GT350R includes MagneRide dampers, which is a Mustang-first accessory for the brand. Two-piece brake rotors for both the Shelby GT350 and the GT350R are the most powerful brakes every fitted to the pony car, pair those with Michelin tires and high-performance wheels and you have a recipe for one of the best handling cars to ever be built. The Ford Shelby GT350 leads the pack for precision handling, with no other vehicle in its class currently at this level.  

 Raj Nair, Ford V.P of Global Product Development states, "When we started working on this car, we wanted to build the best possible Mustang for the places we most love to drive-challenging back roads with a variety of corners and elevation changes, and the track on weekends." Ford set out to create the most powerful and responsible handling system in the automotive industry, and it has succeeded immensely.

The one factor that makes this entire reformulation possible is the MagneRide dampers. The dampers control the spring oscillation in a vehicle's engine. They do this by "damping" the spring's natural tendency to oscillate by using hydraulic fluid. When an electronic current is passed through this hydraulic fluid, immediately an instantaneous adjustment of the suspension performance can be made. How does this make the GT350 and the GT350R easier to handle? While the adjustments are being made to the engine via the dampers, wheel position sensors can monitor motions THOUSANDS of times per second. Combine that with various other vehicle data and changes can be made to each corner every 7 milliseconds for optimum handling performance. In other words, the Ford Shelby GT350 leads the pack for precision handling and if you were ever in a high-speed chase for your life, the 2015 Ford Shelby GT350 or GT350R is definitely, with out a doubt the vehicle you want to be driving.

If the Ford Mustang is a car you would like to see in your driveway, come down and check out all of our 2015 models!   At your Elyria Area Ford Dealer we not only help you find the perfect vehicle, but we can help you take care of it, too! To contact one of our friendly and reputable team members call (800) 978-6317 or stop by our dealership located at 2800 US Highway 250 South in Norwalk, OH.

Tips For Road Tripping With Your Dog - 05/09/2015

Tips For Road Tripping With Your Dog

NORWALK, Ohio – Now that the weather has FINALLY gotten warmer, family road trips to the beach, lake house, campsite or vacation home.  Sometimes your family included those of the four legged, tail wagging variety! Here are some tips for road tripping with your dog; these tips will ensure everyone experiences a healthy, stress free trip from beginning to end!

Contact your vet. If it has been awhile since your dog’s last visit to the vet, now is the time to take him/her in. Ensure your pooch is up to date on all vaccinations and ask if additional vaccinations are required since your trip may encounter different environmental threats.

Plan to take breaks. Plan to take a 15 to 30 minute break every four hours. This ensures that your dog will not get overly bored in the car, and trust us, bored dogs=destructive dogs. Find a nice rest stop and let your dog walk around and smell the area, throw his toy if you can find a pet park that’s enclosed. Either way, always make time for your pet to get out and stretch their legs.

Pack a “Dog Bag”. Bringing things from home or a place that your dog knows well can ease Fido up a bit. By packing his favorite toy or blanket, your dog can feel comforted. The “Dog Bag” can include treats, leash, medications, blanket, dog bed, dog safe insect repellent and a poop bags.

Update your dog’s tags. If your dog is lost on your trip, you want to find them as quickly as possible. If the number on your dog’s tag is your home phone, this could be difficult. Update the tags with your cell phone number, but also and additional emergency number for the area where you will be traveling.

With these easy tips on road tripping with your dog, everyone in the family will have a relaxing drive! At your Milan Area Lincoln Dealership, we not only help you find the perfect vehicle, but we can help you take care of it, too! To contact one of our friendly and reputable team members call (800) 978-6317 or stop by our dealership located at 2800 US Highway 250 South in Norwalk, OH.

Road Trip Must Haves - 04/25/2015

Road Trip Must Haves
NORWALK, Ohio. - With warmer weather comes one of our favorite activities: ROAD TRIPS! More people will drive to their vacations spots this year then in recent memory, thanks to lower gas prices! With more people out on the road, it is good to make sure you have an in car emergency kit, just things to make sure you have in case of a flat tire in the middle of nowhere! While you're waiting for Roadside Assistance, or you parents to being you gas, having these items will help the hours roll by! Here are some road trip must haves to stock up on before you head to the beach! 

1. Bug spray: No one ever knows how important bug spray is to keep in your vehicle until you have to walk 3 miles in a heavily wooded area to get gas. There's nothing really more to say...

2. Kitty litter: Keep a tupperware bowl of kitty litter in your vehicle, it is very absorbent and is great if a kid or dog gets sick while on a drive.

3. Sunscreen: Even when the temperature is low, UV rays can urn up your skin quickly is you are exposed to the sun for to long. Keep a travel size SPF in your glove box or center console, you never know if you might have to be out in the sun switching your flat tire in the blazing sun, trust us, you'll need it!

4. Water: Keep a case of water, or just a few bottles, in your car but make sure to keep it out of the sunlight and replace the bottles every month.

5. Energy bars: These high-calorie snacks are perfect to keep hunger at bay while you are waiting for roadside assistance or a tow truck. This is also great if your are travailing with young kids who get a bit fussy when they are hungry.

6. Maps:Yes we know that most every car has GPS built in, as does your cellular device, your watch, even your kid's portable game console...HOWEVER all of those can die/run out of battery. Having a U.S map, state map, and county map in your car makes sure that you have an idea of where you are most of the time.


7. Utility knife: Having a knife, screwdriver, and can opener, this multi-tool can handle a million different problems! You won't be sorry by splurging and getting one with scissors, pliers and even a magnifying glass!

8. Blankets: We know the temperature can drop pretty quickly in Michigan. Especially in the spring when it can go from 60 degrees during the day, to 30 degrees at night, it is smart to keep a few blankets in your trunk just in case, we all know that engines don't care what time of the day it is...they'll stall whenever.

9. Flashlight: You can't change a tire in the dark! And what happens when you phone dies?

10: First aid kit: This is definitely an item you want in your vehicle ALL the time, not just in the summer. We love this one, throw it in your trunk and you'll forget about it until the situation arises!


With these road trip must haves, you'll definitely feel a lot safer as you teenagers drive around this summer! Do you have any summer trip tips? Are there things you ALWAYS keep in your car, no matter where you're going? Share them with us! We not only help you find the perfect vehicle, but we can help you take care of it, too! To contact one of our friendly and reputable team members call (800) 978-6317 or stop by our dealership located at 2800 US Highway 250 South in Norwalk, OH.

The Secrets Of The Ford Mustang Will Be Revealed In A New Documentary - 04/24/2015

The Secrets Of The Ford Mustang Will Be Revealed In A New Documentary

NORWALK, Ohio. – 2015 marketed the 50thAnniversary of the Ford Mustang in production. Along with a completely remodeled Mustang, this also marks the first year that the American pony-car will become available to buyers all over the world. What Ford has just announced, seriously about an hour ago, is that the secrets of the Ford Mustang will be revealed in a new documentary “A Faster Horse” which will debut at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.

“A Faster Horse” brings viewers behind the scenes and takes a look at the development of the 2015 Ford Mustang, which marks the 50thAnniversary of America’s original muscle pony car. Director David Gelb, who also directed the critically acclaimed documentary “Jiro Dreams of Sushi”, was given access to Ford’s secret engineering and testing facilities for over a year.


Featured is Gale Halderman, the designer of the original Mustang, as well as Chief Engineer Dave Pericak, a lifelong fan of the pony car. The secrets of the Ford Mustang will be revealed in a new documentary, which is also a first in its kind. Ford funded the entire project, but Gelb states he had full creative control of the final product.

2015 is definitely the year of the Mustang, and we are LOVING it here at Don Tester! Don Tester Ford Lincoln can help you get behind the wheel of your very own 2015 Ford Mustang today!

Ford F-150 Shines In Crash Tests - 04/18/2015

Ford F-150 Shines In Crash Tests
NORWALK, Ohio. – The all-new 2015 Ford F-150 aced several federal regulated crash tests, and was given the coveted top five-star rating in its class! The new Ford F-150 shines in crash tests, while GM’s new mid-size pickups only collected four-star ratings. One of the main changes, if not the biggest, is the complete switch from an all-steel frame to an all-aluminum frame, which gives the new 2015 F-150 a significant decrease in weight.

Automotive insiders were initially worried that this switch to a lighter frame may compromise the safety features of the F-150, but they couldn’t have been more wrong! The four-door Super Crew version of the full size F-150 pickup, which accounts for around 70% of the model’s sales, was rated at 5 stars overall and also received top marks for side and front crash impacts.

Raj Nair, Ford group VP for Global Product Development said that; “Our truck team worked together for years to deliver this accomplishment, using an unprecedented combination of advanced materials throughout the all-new Ford F-150. The 2015 model is engineered to be the safest F-150 ever created.”

It looks like the new Ford F-150 shines in crash tests, which was NOT the case for the General Motor’s truck lineup.  Not only can your local Lincoln Dealership Serving Fremont, OH help you find the perfect vehicle, but we can help you take care of it, too! To contact one of Don Tester Ford Lincoln's friendly and reputable team members call (888) 857-2161 or stop by our dealership located at 2800 US Highway 250 South in Norwalk, OH

The New Lincoln Continental Concept - 03/30/2015


The New Lincoln Continental Concept
NORWALK, Ohio - The new Lincoln Continental Concept is a sight for sore eyes that packs elegance, sophistication, and luxury into one subtle package. One would think that a first-class vehicle such as the Continental Concept would need to shout it from the roof tops, but this is not the case. Lincoln Motor Company has crafted a full-size sedan that is able to meet customer expectations without having to make a loud statement out on the road.


The New Lincoln Continental Concept

The new Lincoln Continental Concept's all-new silhouette perfectly encompasses the brand's iconic demeanor of beauty and elegance. It is sporting a new one-piece grille, easy open and close E-Latch door handles, and a full-width taillamp with light-through-chrome technology. The Lincoln Continental Concept also features Lincoln's signature Approach Detection. The vehicle can sense when the driver is approaching and will then light up inside and out to greet them.


A Lincoln-exclusive 3.0-liter V6 EcoBoost Engine will provide drivers with an even smoother and more powerful ride than they could have imagined. Pick your poison when comes to driving modes with Lincoln Drive Control, which offers the choice of a comfort, sport, or normal driving style. The sunroof is tinted with SPD SmartGlass® which not only makes for a gorgeous atmosphere, but also blocks 99 percent UV rays and maintains and reduces interior temperatures up to 18 degrees!


The New Lincoln Continental Concept


You had to expect that Lincoln was going to take things to the next level on the inside of the Continental Concept. The sedan offers several new rear seat amenities like fully reclining seats, a tablet lap tray, a champagne storage compartment, and Venetian leather travel cases. The entire cabin features ambient lighting including soft gold LED lights that are lined throughout the underside of the center console and the halo light overhead.

Ford Builds Real-Life TONKA Truck for NTEA Show - 03/05/2015

Ford Builds Real-Life TONKA Truck for NTEA Show
NORWALK, Ohio - It is the very same truck that many little ones came to love 30 years ago, but now this bad boy won't fit in your sandbox. Ford built a real-life TONKA Truck for the NTEA Work Truck Show, taking an infamous childhood toy and making it into a reality. For more than 60 years, folks of all ages have been counting on their TONKA trucks and Ford F-Series to help them get the job done. Now, the mighty Ford F-750 TONKA truck is the ultimate celebration of the Ford truck customers who first "drove" TONKA trucks.

When Ford builds something like a real-life TONKA truck for the NTEA Work Truck Show, they are going to go all out and ensure that it is Built Ford Tough! From the bright yellow paint with the TONKA signature on the side to the blackout nostril grille and functional dump body, everything on this F-750 TONKA is authentic as it gets. The 10-foot-tall F-750 TONKA truck even has a 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel engine sitting under the hood that produces up to 320 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque!

The Ford F-750 TONKA would considered as an ideal tool for construction workers. This baby carries Ford's most capable gross vehicle weight rating of 33,000 pounds and has a dump body that can haul up to 17,000 pounds! Unfortunately the TONKA model of the F-750 won't be making it to the market, however, customers can still count on the 2016 Ford F-650/F-750 medium-duty truck lineup to help them get the job done when it becomes available this summer. Ford's F-750 TONKA will continue to make appearances at major work truck and commercial shows until the end the year.
