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!

Brighton Ford Pet Of The Week: Anya


Hi Everyone, I'm Anya! I’m a beautiful 2-year-old Pit Bull mix! I’m spayed, micro chipped, and up to date on vaccines. I love playing outside and hanging out with people. I’m super affectionate, gentle, and I love giving kisses! I would prefer to not live with cats, they’re too much for me. She would probably prefer to be an only-dog but may consider sharing a household if she meets and accepts another dog.  I know sit and I’m pretty polite on a leash.

Brighton Ford Pet Of The Week: Phoebe


My name is Phoebe. I am a VERY LOVING, playful, 3 year old short hair (spayed) female with GORGEOUS brown/grey Mackerel tabby markings and deep green eyes. I endured a very confusing time in my young life moving around from place to place until I was surrendered when my owner could no longer care for me. I am a very sweet girl, but was not happy at the shelter being around other cats, so thankfully, I am staying in a WONDERFUL foster home until I can be adopted. I would be SO HAPPY to find a loving, forever home and family to call my own! It may take a little extra effort for you to schedule an appointment to meet me in my foster home, but I promise I am worth it!

My foster Mom ADORES me!

Read some WONDERFUL things we have learned about Phoebe from her foster Mom:

Phoebe has been a PURR-fect house guest! She has beautiful, super soft fur that could keep you petting her for hours and she would absolutely love that! While other cats love to snuggle on your lap, this sweet little lady loves to crawl onto your chest and SING PURRS of contentment into your ear.

Phoebe loves to alternate between play time and cuddle time and will quickly charm her way into your heart and bring joy into your home. I love it when I open the door, she either races over to greet me or hops up on the condo and rolls all over in delight! Provide her with a feather toy and watch her happily play swat and catch! She is also quite content to be left alone especially if she is given a place to bask in the sun and perched near a window where she can observe the outside world around her. No worries with scratching -- this girl absolutely LOVES her scratching post!

Phoebe is very friendly with people and seems happy to share her home with respectful children, but becomes very stressed and agitated around other cats, so would be best if she is in a home without other cats around.

This sweet girl has endured the stress of moving around too often in her young life and deserves a stable, loving, forever home now! We intend to keep her happy in a foster home until she can be adopted into a permanent home!

If You Fit One Of These 4 Profiles, You May Need To Change Your Oil More Often


You probably already know the oil-change recommendations for typical drivers, according to your owner’s manual:

-For 2008 and newer model-year vehicles: every 7,500 miles or every six months, whichever comes first.

-For 2007 and older model-year vehicles: every 5,000 miles or every six months, whichever comes first.

But many people don’t know that if you regularly operate in certain severe conditions, like the driver types hightlighted below, you may need to change your oil more frequently:

-For 2008 and newer model-year vehicles: every 5,000 miles or every six months, whichever comes first.

-For 2007 and older model-year vehicles: every 3,000 miles or every three months, whichever comes first.

So if you find your driver profile here, be sure to move up your scheduled oil-change date to help keep your vehicle—and your life—running smoothly.

Stop-and-Go Commuter
Do you have a short daily drive with lots of stop signs or traffic lights? If yes, your engine may not have enough time to warm up. Colder engines can lead to unburned gasoline, which mixes with your oil, reducing your engine’s protection. (Be especially aware of this issue in winter, when people often drive short distances instead of walking in frigid temperatures.)

Hot-Weather Highway Hustler
Driving at higher speeds for a sustained period actually helps the oil warm up and move to critical places in your engine, keeping it well lubricated. But watch out when the weather gets blazing: In high temperatures, oil can get too thin, lose additives and oxidize prematurely—all of which can reduce its strength.

Dust-Bunny Driver
If you live near dirt roads, in polluted environments or in the Southwest and you haven’t replaced your air filter in a while, you may need more frequent oil changes. When motor oil combines with dust, it can turn into an abrasive compound that erodes metals from your system. The resulting sludge—a combination of oil, dust and metal—is not ideal for your engine.

Heavy Hauler
Farmers, construction workers and weekend warriors, heads up: Carrying or towing heavy loads can make your engine run hotter than normal. This can lead to eroded metals, thinner oil viscosity and premature, excessive oxidation—which means you need more frequent oil changes.

If your Ford vehicle is equipped with the Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor, that may notify you of the proper time for an oil change. And no matter what type of driver you are, consult your Ford owner’s manual to be sure you’re using the correct motor oil and weight for your vehicle. While we’re at it, don’t forget: It is extremely important to change your oil filter with at least every other oil change. An oil change, oil-filter check and more is all included in The Works™ maintenance package at the Brighton Ford Service Center near South Lyon, Michigan.

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.

Ford SYNC 3 Software Update Supports Android Auto & Apple CarPlay on '17 & '16 Model-year Vehicles

Ford is making Android Auto and Apple CarPlay software support available to model-year 2016 vehicles equipped with SYNC 3. Customers with model-year 2016 Ford vehicles can update to the new SYNC 3 version 2.2 by downloading to a USB drive, visiting a dealership or automatically through a Wi-Fi connection.

“Our SYNC 3 software platform was designed to be easy to update so we can get our customers the latest and greatest features, functionally and security enhancements,” said Don Butler, executive director, Ford Connected Vehicle and Services. “With over-the-air updates, we can deliver new features to customers in the background while they continue using their vehicles.”

Customers can update their software by visiting owner.ford.com to download and install with a USB drive, or by visiting a dealership. Customers with Wi-Fi-enabled vehicles and a Wi-Fi network can set up their vehicle to receive the update automatically.

Android Auto
Compatible with Android™ devices 5.0 and higher, Android Auto brings the Android experience into the vehicle safely and easily with Google Maps, Google Play Music, phone, messaging and third party apps projected on the car's built-in display and available via voice controls. With a simplified interface, large touch targets, Google voice search and easy-to-use voice controls, Android Auto is designed to minimize distraction while on the road.

Android, Android Auto, Google Maps and Google Play are trademarks of Google Inc.

Apple CarPlay
Compatible with iPhone 5 and later models running iOS 7.1 or higher, Apple CarPlay gives iPhone users an intuitive way to make phone calls, use voice-guided navigation, listen to music, and send and receive messages while staying focused on the road. Users can control Apple CarPlay through the in-vehicle display or via Siri voice control. Apple CarPlay support requires a USB hub upgrade available through Ford dealers.

SYNC 3 currently supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay on all model-year 2017 Ford cars including the Fiesta, Focus, Fusion and Mustang, SUVs including the Escape, Explorer and Expedition, F-Series trucks and Ford’s electrified vehicles.

Receiving updates over Wi-Fi
Though Ford has been issuing SYNC upgrades since 2009, this is the first time the company is offering an update via Wi-Fi. In Wi-Fi-enabled vehicles with Automatic System Updates turned on within SYNC 3, the system will periodically connect to a customer’s designated Wi-Fi network to check for updates. If an update is available, the system automatically downloads the update in the background over a period of time without any customer interaction. And SYNC 3 is designed to perform the update as long as Wi-Fi is connected prior to the vehicle turning off, therefore there is no need to keep the vehicle running for the update to take place.
