October is officially here, which means we will soon be seeing falling leaves, football season, and Halloween. The change in season also means a change in driving conditions, as we will temperatures drop, more rain, ice on the roads, and possibly even a little snow. We must prepare our vehicle for these weather conditions, as the transition from summer to fall to winter can take a toll on our vehicle's overall health.  Autumn maintenance focuses on your vehicle's three essential components: wiper blades, fluids, and tire tread and balance. It is easy to forget about your windshield wipers -- you switch them when it starts to rain, but other than that, it is not common to think about your windshield wipers needing attention. However, your windshield wipers are imperative to the overall health and safety of your vehicle.  Imagine you driving in the rain, and you reach to turn on your windshield wipers.

How Your Vehicle is the Embodiment of Freedom

How Your Vehicle is the Embodiment of Freedom

In a small workshop behind his home, Henry Ford built his first vehicle. After the formation of the Ford Motor Company, the first Ford car was officially assembled in July 1903. From then on out, Ford vehicles and subsequently, all other makes of cars became the embodiment of freedom.  Cars represent the freedom to make choices, to go places, to explore new paths, and to, of course, travel down new roads, even those unknown and unexplored. Because of our vehicle, we all have the opportunity to “hit the open road,” blast our favorite song, and leave our worries behind. Vehicles represent what we love the most of America -- our freedom. Fourth of July celebrates the birth of American Independence, and our vehicles are the product of our desire for freedom, choice, and independence.  It is easy to get bogged down in the facets of everyday life.
