What is a Certified Pre Owned Lincoln?

maxresdefaultThere has been a lot of buzz recently about the importance of Certified Pre Owned vehicles, but what does it mean? A Certified Pre Owned (CPO) vehicle is a late model vehicle that fits a certain criteria that is determined by the manufacturer of the vehicle. The vehicle then goes through a multiple point inspection and is reconditioned back to as close to new as possible. The manufacturer then attaches a warranty to the vehicle covering any number of components and it is sold to you as not quite a new vehicle, and not quite a used vehicle.

That being said, not all Certified Manufacturer programs are the same and Lincoln has one of the best in the business.  A Certified Lincoln undergoes a 200 point inspection by a Master Certified Lincoln Technician. Then the vehicle is wrapped in a 6 year or 100,000 mile Premium Care warranty that covers nearly every component on the vehicle with a $100 deductible. In addition, Lincoln offers a free rental vehicle if your Certified Lincoln ever needs service and free transportation assistance in the event that your Certified Pre Owned Lincoln breaks down more than 100 miles from home. Your Certified Pre Owned Lincoln even comes with free roadside assistance and a full tank of fuel.

The winning combination of the Lincoln Motor Company, Montgomery Lincoln, and a Certification process that is second to none presents a value that is very difficult to pass up. Here is a link with special deals on the Lincoln Certified Pre Owned inventory at Montgomery Lincoln!

Montgomery Lincoln Grand Opening and Matthew 25: Ministries!

August was an awesome month at Montgomery Lincoln. The long awaited Grand Opening month began with great fanfare. Montgomery Lincoln had a huge turn out on August 3rd that was complimented by face painting, balloons, hamburgers, hot dogs, door prizes, and special pricing on every vehicle! The event was only made better by the fact that Montgomery Lincoln had committed to give $25 for every vehicle sold during the month and offered to double that donation if we hit 80 units.  Matthew 25: passed out flyers and gave tours of their facility to assist in the endeavor and it was made very apparent that the money that would be raised would help a lot of people in need.  We learned that in South America many children drop out of school because they simply get tired if having to write in the dirt with their fingers in order to learn math!  Matthew 25: makes their own notebooks and pencils that they can then distribute to the children.  We also learned that in Nicaragua, Matthew 25: can build a house for a family that lives in a leaky hut for only $1500! All of us at Montgomery Lincoln came away feeling very blessed to live in the United States and it only strengthened our resolve to donate as much as we could by selling as many vehicle as we could.  The last week of the month came quickly and we all worked hard to ensure that we would hit 80 units. When the dust settled, Montgomery Lincoln has sold 85 units and presented Matthew 25: with a check for $4,250! We like to think that you and Montgomery Lincoln teamed together to build 3 homes for those that are less fortunate in Nicaragua. Maybe we can build more in 2014! You gotta be thinkin’ Montgomery Lincoln!

Driven to Give

November was a month of giving not only thanks, but also of giving back at Montgomery Lincoln. The theme around the dealership was Driven to Give, and we were able to utilize a great program of the same name from the Lincoln Motor Company to help a great local organization.

We partnered with A Kid Again, in order to help them spread their good work to terminally ill children in the area. Unlike other organizations, A Kid Again doesn’t stop with granting the children one wish. They keep working to continually help brighten the child’s life.

Michelle Johnson, Executive Director of the Southwest Chapter of A Kid Again, was instrumental in promoting our initiative. She also organized a team of volunteers to man the main Driven to Give event on November 16th; an opportunity for people to experience a new Lincoln while contributing to the cause. We had quite a few people turn out on the blustery day to see what the new Lincoln models are all about.

We also had a very special guest. The Cravemobile from White Castle made its first trip to Cincinnati and offered free sandwiches to all of the attendees!

All told, Montgomery Lincoln was able to make a donation of almost $2000 to help A Kid Again allow kids to be kids.

Your Tires are your Car’s Feet!

Let’s talk about tires for a minute. 

20131212_111120How many of you really know anything about tires? Did you know that your tires can be bad and still have tread on them?

Most tires a produced today are worn out by 50,000 miles whether they have tread or not. You see, inside your tire are steel belts and these belts flex and get very hot every time you drive your car. Over time, the steel becomes weak and can allow your tire to wander under extreme conditions. This can cause a loss of control at a moment when you are trying to avoid an accident. The worst offender of tires that are worn our but have tread are SUV’s and trucks.

In the event that your tires are “looking” worn out, you can check them yourself by looking at the wear indicators. Wear indicators are molded into the rubber between the tread on your tires. It will be a small hump in the valley of the tread that is spaced about every 15″ or so. If your tread is at the same height as the wear indicator on you inside tread, then it is time for a new set of tires.

As always, please check for proper inflation of your tires at least once a month. Weather changes and corrosion inside an aluminum wheel, among other things, can cause pressure loss.

Incorrect tire pressure can cause uneven tread wear, poor fuel economy, and possible tire failure.  If you don’t have a tire gauge or just want a professional to take a look at your tires, please don’t hesitate to stop by Montgomery Lincoln.  Greg Seiter or Roger Henson happy to check your tires for you.  If you want to call ahead, just call 513-683-3800.

A wise man once said “Your tires are the only thing that should be full of hot air!” Happy Motoring!! :-)

If that wasn’t enough, the 2015 Lincoln Navigator will come standard with the famous Ecoboost twin turbo V6 engine. This engine combines V8 power, diesel torque, and V6 fuel economy. The Ecoboost engine is expected to rearproduce 365hp with 420 lb.-ft. of torque at 2500 RPM.
