Lincoln Ups the Ante with Adaptive Suspension and Road Previewing

Adaptive Suspension and Road Previewing

How it Works?

The Adaptive Suspension is built around a series of electronic sensors and an ultra-fast computing process. A dozen sensors continuously monitor road conditions, vehicle speed, wheel height, a change in velocity and a host of other factors. It can sense a change in height of as little as two inches. It can also detect variances in the road of up to 50 feet away, due to its front-mounted camera. The monitoring process is faster than the human eye or the human brain can imagine. The system reads the road up to 500 times per second.

Why is My TPMS Light On?

Most drivers are familiar with the TPMS indicator by now – they’ve been required by law in all vehicles made since 2007, and were a common feature for quite some time beforehand. TPMS, or tire pressure monitoring sensors/systems keep a close eye on tire pressure, by watching the wheel and using direct sensors in most modern tires.

There are a number of reasons your TPMS indicator may come on:

Temperature 

Heat and cold can shrink or expand air, and this directly affects pressure.

It's Time to Schedule Engine Cooling Service

Engines get very hot when driving even short distances. That is why our experienced Lincoln service team here at Gwinnett Place Lincoln want to ensure that you realize the importance of your radiator and cooling system. When a car's engine is running too hot, the radiator and associated cooling system is what keeps it from becoming damaged. Radiator fluid is used to draw out excess heat from the engine and expel it out into the surroundings. If engines run too hot, then their efficiency falls through the floor.

What Should a Driver Do When the Low Tire Pressure Light Stays On?

When your tire pressure monitoring light comes on, it is a good idea to pull over and observe all four of your tires. Sometimes, it will be difficult to see any problem. When the light comes on, and the tires appear full, check the tire pressure with a tire pressure gauge. These handy little tools are inexpensive and should always be available.

If you find that one or more of your tires has low air pressure, do not drive on it. Driving with low tire air pressure damages the sidewalls of the tire.
