Do You Need to Clay Bar Your New Ford After Every Wash?

Using a clay bar is the automotive equivalent of exfoliating. Or, more on-the-nose, like a detoxifying mud mask.

Sometimes contaminants become deeply embedded or bonded to the paint, and cannot be removed by regular washing alone. You must rub the surface with wet clay to extract them. But how often should you be doing this? Every wash? Every other wash? Twice a year?

According to Larry Kosilla, professional detailer and founder of Ammo NYC, there is no set schedule for claying, and you don't want to overdo it.

To find out when it's time to clay, run your…

Falling Subcompact Car Sales in U.S. Give Weight to Rumor of Ford Fiesta's Discontinuation

Let's start right off with a disclaimer: What we're about to say has not yet been officially confirmed, nor denied by Ford Motor Company. But a Ford employee in Germany—the director of the Fiesta line, in fact—gave a statement to the Romanian auto news site 0-100 suggesting the Ford Fiesta would no longer be sold in America, starting with the 2018 model-year.

Clearwater's Love For SUVs is Clear

SUVs rank high on the totem pole of popular American automobiles. More people are driving them, and as more people drive them, more people fall in love with them. An analysis of consumer data from earlier this year actually found that 66 percent of existing SUV drivers shopping for new cars bought replacement SUVs.

What inspires that kind of loyalty? SUVs like the 2017 Ford Explorer.

Autotrader Cites Top Traits of 2017 Ford Escape

Seeking a compact crossover for your next daily driver? Well, if so, we here at Walker Ford would be quick to point you in the direction of ours, the 2017 Escape.

And what is it that makes this SUV such a smart selection?

Autotrader pundit, Debra Shigley, explains all in the clip below. Have at it right here:

Though the Escape's entry-level engine, an 179-horsepower turbo-four, is certainly nothing to sneeze at, it admittedly can't quite compare to its brawnier brother, the optional turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder upgrade.

Available on the SE and Titanium trims, the turbo 2…

Ford Has a Superb Midsize Sedan in the 2017 Fusion Hybrid

No matter how you slice it, there sure is an awful lot to love about our fuel-sipping midsize sedan, the 2017 Fusion Hybrid.

And if you suspect that we here at Walker Ford are the only ones who feel as we do, well ... think again.

As it turns out, Autotrader critic Jabari Jones is also quite fond of the Fusion Hybrid. Hear his thoughts on the matter in the clip below:

We quite honestly cannot get enough of the Fusion Hybrid's engine, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that pairs with a lithium-ion battery-pack-powered electric motor. Generating a healthy 188 horsepower…

Four wheels to get from A to B should still be clean!

Now if we're honest, the vehicle you drive is much more than merely four wheels to get from A to B right? Very few of you out there drive a Lamborghini, McClellan or Porsche. It matters very little if your ride is an everyday make and model. In this day and age, every external thing about us is literally a reflection of our personality and style... your vehicle is no different in that respect.

Your car is truly an extension of you and your personality, so certainly you don't want it to be creeping along the asphalt looking…

Preparation is the Key to a Successful Road Trip

Planning for your next road trip all comes down to the preparation that you put in before you leave the house. If you are looking for the things you need to be doing to have a safe trip, consider bringing along the following items on your trip.

Be sure that you have a set of jumper cables packed away in the trunk. There is no telling when the car battery could fail, and you don't want to be stranded where no one can offer you a jump.

Pack a box of assorted emergency tools for the trip. These should…

The Best Time to Replace Your Car Battery

Your car's battery health is absolutely essential to the health of your vehicle because your battery is essentially what makes your car run. I would hate to go on a long road trip with a battery that is ripe to expire because that is almost a guaranteed recipe for disaster.

Most people replace their batteries when the car actually stops running, or they wait till their back is against the wall and they have to have their batteries jumped. Some people may wait for the battery light to alert them of their poor battery health, yet, by then, their…
