Meet Angelina Ballerina, The Brighton Ford Pet Of The Week

I am Angelina Ballerina, a VERY PRETTY little 5 year old, (spayed) female Mottled Chocolate Point Siamese mix. I was found as a stray and SO THANKFUL to be safe here now ready to find a new loving home! I am a little nervous from all the new sights and sounds at the shelter, but once I feel comfortable in a new place, I will show you what an affectionate, playful girl I can be! I am a curious girl who LOVES attention, enjoys being brushed, and responds well to brief petting and a little playtime to know each other before handling me too much. I would be SO HAPPY to be a special companion to someone who will keep me safe indoors and love me furr-ever!

Meet The Brighton Ford Pet Of The Week: DJ

Unless you were blinded from the eclipse earlier this week, it’s real easy to see that DJ is a cute cat in need of his forever home!  Meet the less than a year old boy that wants to earn a spot in your heart.  He’s playful, curious, happy and sure loves attention.  DJ may jump on your lap for a few chin scratches, but then he prefers to play! 

DJ was found with an abcess near his tail that required surgery and time to heal in a foster home before he could be adopted. He’s doing GREAT now and anxious to find his new home and family!  He really has a lot of energy and seem to be ok around other cats, so may enjoy having another young feline playmate in his new home. Think of the fun we could have!

Trish is a diehard Detroit Lions fan and looks forward to going to a few games every season to root on her favorite team.  When Trish is not working she enjoys listening to Pentatonix and doing everything with her “Fur babies” Charlotte and Binks.  She works hard to give Charlotte and Binks the best life possible and is very passionate about all pets in general!  Make sure to say “Hi” to Trish next time you are in our dealership and if you would like to share dog stories, then Trish is your go to person at Brighton Ford!

Ford F-Series Is Best Selling Truck For 40 Years


Ford has sold enough F-series trucks to circle the earth more than three times!

The F-series, best known for the popular F-150, has been America's best-selling truck for the 40 consecutive years since its launch. Ford says it's sold more than 26 million since the model line came out in 1977.

The F-series has also been the best-selling vehicle of any kind in America for 35 years, the company said.

Ford has sold 818,580 of the trucks in the years since it launched the F-series. It started with the F-100 as a base truck back in 1977, and replaced it with the F-150 in 1984.

The evolution of the F-series followed changes in how people perceived and used trucks. Like blue jeans, pickup trucks went from being something appropriate only for work to being a style and lifestyle statement of their own.  Americans weren't just using trucks as farm tools anymore, to haul around pigs and hay bales. Trucks were being used increasingly for commuting to office jobs, family trips to Walmart and McDonald's, shuttling the kids to school and tailgate parties at football games.

The Brighton Ford Pet Of The Week With A Very Special Story



Kyra is a beautiful, sweet, short hair, (spayed) female, chocolate point Siamese mix with orange markings who is only about 2 years old. Kyra was found in rough condition suffering from puncture wounds and Entropion, a very painful eye condition. She is so grateful to be at the Humane Society of Livingston County where she received the love and medical care needed, including eye surgery and some time in a foster home to recover. Kyra is doing so much better now and getting around just great! She is starting to show everyone what a very friendly girl she can be who is quite talkative and would love to sit on your lap! Her vision may be a bit compromised, so she thinks she would prefer a quiet, relaxed home without too much activity or noise that may startle her, but should be ok with nice cats or kids who can respect that.

We do not know how long Kyra suffered from her eye condition or whether her vision will be fully restored, but we do know that she is a very sweet, young girl who is ready to begin her new life in a loving home where she will feel safe and cherished!

Adopt Dasher, The Brighton Ford Pet Of The Week

Dasher is a super cute 2-year-old tan Whippet/Chihuahua mix that loves driving Ford Mustangs! He’s neutered, micro-chipped and up to date on vaccines. Dasher would be a rock star at fly ball or some type of agility, his last home had children that he was great with. So far the staff here think that he is potty-trained but he may need a refresher once he finds his new home. Dasher loves being with people and spending quality time with them. He really loves going out in the big yard at the Humane Society of Livingston County to play, but would much rather be in your back yard with you.

Inheriting Your Parents’ Car For College? Read This!

It’s a bit more complicated than just taking the keys and heading off to freedom.

Follow these checklists—one for you, the other for your parents—for a smoother, safer transition.

STUDENT CHECKLIST

Consult your Ford owner’s manual. What kind of motor oil does your vehicle take? And how much? These are the types of things you’ll need to know, whether you take it to Brighton Ford Service or do it yourself—and it’s all in the manual.

Learn basic car maintenance, including how to:
Check/change the oil
Check the tire pressure
Fill the windshield washer fluid
Adjust the headlamps
Check/fill the coolant
Change the engine air filter
Change the power steering fluid
Change windshield wiper blades
Clean your vehicle—inside and out

Find a safe place to park on campus. Your school should provide information on permits and parking options for students; research this ahead of time.

Know your late-night security options. Check to see if the campus offers a after-hours security escort to your parked car. Remember, it’s a good idea to walk with friends when heading to parking areas at night and always choose well-lit paths.

Note nearby emergency phones. Many colleges have special phones around campus to help ensure students’ safety—locate the security phone closest to your parking spot.

Build an emergency kit for your trunk, including:
Jumper cables
Flashlight with extra batteries
First-aid kit
Tire-pressure gauge
Blanket
Rags or paper towels
Work gloves
Flares
Spare ignition key
Bottle of water
Granola or energy bars
A selection of basic hand tools, such as screwdrivers and pliers
Ice scraper, snow brush and kitty litter (to increase traction, if your college is in an area that gets snow)
Consider Roadside Assistance coverage. Ford 24-Hour Roadside Assistance can provide Ford owners with services such as towing, battery jump start, flat-tire change, fuel delivery and lock-out assistance. Call 800-241-3673 for details.

PARENT CHECKLIST

Weigh the benefits of signing over the title. You don’t want to end up paying unexpected fees, so consult your auto insurance company to see if your rates will change if your child becomes the owner of the car, and ask your accountant about any potential tax ramifications for you or your child.

Consult your Secretary of State (or DMV in many other states). If you decide to sign over the title, check with your Secretary of State office for details on making the transfer. Any change of the registered owner must be formally filed at you’re the Secretary of State.

Give the car a safety checkup. For your own peace of mind, you’ll want to make sure the car is in top shape for your child. Take it in for The Works package at Brighton Ford, which includes an oil change, tire rotation, brake inspection, multipoint inspection, fluid top-off, battery test, filter check and belts and hoses check.

OK, now hand over the keys.

Brighton Ford Pet Of The Week: Molly

Molly is an absolutely beautiful girl inside and out. Only a DNA test would tell us her true breed mixture but we believe she is a  lab/boxer mix.  She is about a year and a half old, puppy like in her energy, ripe and ready to learn. Molly walks well on a leash, loves other dogs and is a snuggle bunny with  her people.   She was raised in a family with children and she misses them every day.
Molly is a magnificent athlete, she can run with the grace of a gazelle .  We think it would be awesome if her new family had a runner among them.  She would also quite enjoy going to a beginning obedience class to learn a common language with her new people and tap into her innate intelligence.  Molly has the whole package: she's super cute, super loving, Smart and lots of fun.
Come meet her at the Humane Society of Livingston County today!!!

How Does Tire Pressure Work & How Does It Affect My Drive?

Tire pressure is the measure of air in your tires. Learn how it works and why maintaining it is one of the most important vehicle safety measures you can take.

1. HOW DOES IT WORK?
Air molecules within the tire moving around 1,000 miles per hour push outward, creating tension and inflating your tire.

2. HOW DOES IT AFFECT MY DRIVING?
Correct tire pressure helps ensure proper stability and braking, allowing for a safe, comfortable and fuel-optimized ride.

3. WHAT HAPPENS IF MY TIRE IS UNDERINFLATED?
An underinflated tire will put undue wear on the shoulders of the tread, leading to poor driving performance, decreased road grip and an increased chance of hydroplaning.

4. HOW IS IT MEASURED?
If your vehicle has it, your Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) will monitor your tire pressure and let you know if any of your tires are significantly underinflated. If not, use a tire pressure gauge and air pump to check to see if it matches your vehicle tire label on the B-pillar or driver’s door.

5. HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CHECK MY TIRE PRESSURE?
On average, tires lose around 1 psi of pressure a month, and lose an additional 1 psi for every 10-degree drop in outside temperature. You should check your pressure before long trips or after particularly strenuous drives.

If you need help checking your tire pressure, stop into Brighton Ford and our Ford Certified Technicians can help.  You can schedule your drop-off time online here.

The Brighton Ford Service Center repairs all makes and models, whether you need new brakes, an oil change or even an air conditioner recharge, we are here for you!  Just outside of Howell and Fenton, we are centrally located and provide award winning auto repair in the state of Michigan

Brighton Ford Pet Of The Week: Cleocatra - The Adorable, Petite, 3 Year Old Cat

My name is Cleocatra. I am a super cute, petite short hair (spayed) female brown tabby born around 2014, so I am only 3 years old. I was found as a stray and, thankfully, taken in by a caring family until I could come here to find a new home. I am a very friendly, playful girl who will love to cuddle once I feel safe and relaxed in my home. I am easy to please, but do not like to be around other cats, so please keep that in mind here at the shelter and for the type of home that will be best for me. I am really adorable and make cute chirping sounds when I am happy!  Please help me go from homeless to happiness!
