Add Features to Your Vehicle at Zeck Ford

You’ve spent days looking for the perfect car, and you’ve almost found it. Unfortunately, it lacks a couple of the features you really, really wanted, but you’ve exhausted your options, even at Zeck Ford, where we have hundreds of vehicles for sale on our lot.

Fortunately for you, we can upgrade your new Ford vehicle or used car right here at our dealership, turning the vehicle you’re settling for into the Ford truck or SUV of your dreams! Through dealership add-ons and protection packages, you can be sure you’ll drive away in the exact vehicle you’ve always wanted, and you can even finance your add-ons and upgrades in your vehicle’s purchase price. Here are five of Zeck Ford customer favorites for upgrading vehicles.

Heated Seats for Cold Kansas City Winters

You know how frigid winter temperatures can get here in the Kansas City area, especially when ice storms head our way. One very in-demand feature that will help keep you warm, even as you wait for your car’s heater to kick in, is heated front seats (and heated rear seats are available, too).

With just the push of a button, you’ll immediately start to thaw out from your traipse through the snow and into your vehicle. With a warm backside, you can drive in comfort, even with the heating system down lower for your passengers who may prefer it a little more chilly.

Heated seats are also great for people with back pain. The heat can help relieve tension after a long day at the office or doing manual labor, so you don’t have to wait until you get home to start feeling better. Plus, you can keep your takeout pizza warm, too!

Remote Start Cools Off Your Ford Truck Interior

Just like our frigid winters, you can expect Kansas City summers to be humid, muggy, and hot. If your truck has been sitting in the sun for even a few hours, you probably dread climbing inside and being surrounded by the miserable, nearly unbearable heat, let alone touching the metal clip of the seat belt. Seat belts are designed to keep you safe, but not when it’s so hot in your truck that they burn you!

Asking your dealer to install a remote start system in your Ford truck can cool your truck interior to the ideal temperature before you get inside and drive away. Letting your air conditioner get your cab to a more comfortable temperature before you get in gives you a much more pleasurable driving experience. And, it works in the winter, too, by heating up your car before you get in!

Rust-Resistant Undercoating Protects Against Salted Winter Roads

One of the most popular upgrades in areas of the country with snowfall or ice storms is spraying on a rust-resistant undercoating to protect your vehicle’s undercarriage from salt build-up during the winter. The salt sprays up from the streets as you drive and can erode your vehicle in places you can’t readily see. The rust, as a result, can create problems that you won’t even be aware of until the next time your mechanic gets your vehicle up on a lift and takes a look.

Adding the rust-proofing is not only inexpensive, but it also takes very little time. If you’re considering a beneficial upgrade to help your vehicle last longer, an undercoating is a good choice.

Extended Warranty Coverage on Your New Ford Vehicle

Not many people can afford to purchase a vehicle, drive it past its manufacturer’s warranty, and then pay for a major repair before your car is even paid off. The extended warranty options you can add on to your vehicle financing through Zeck Ford give you coverage, should the unthinkable happen, and your newer vehicle needs to be fixed.

You need only pay a small deductible — or nothing at all — out of pocket for lots of repairs when you choose a bumper-to-bumper warranty. This is an especially good idea if you don’t have a lot of money in savings for an unexpected repair in the near future, or if you know you’ll be putting a lot of mileage on your new car, which will deplete the warranty more quickly.

Premium-Package Leather Seats or Sunroof

If you don’t want to pay the extra price of a premium trim level for a new vehicle, but you desperately want the features a higher trim level will provide, such as leather upholstery or a sunroof, fear not! Zeck Ford can make both of these things happen for you, for a fraction of the price an upgraded trim level may cost you.

You can even build the cost of these upgrades into your auto loan, so you don’t have to pay anything out of pocket for them. You can experience benefits that a more premium car interior might afford you, without also having to pay for the other features you just aren’t interested in, such as a more powerful engine or extra infotainment features.

Choose OEM Parts for Your Brand-New Car

Zeck Ford only uses manufacturer-quality parts when we upgrade your new Ford vehicle. Our OEM, or original manufacturer parts, are the very same ones that Ford would use when they build their popular cars, trucks, and SUVs. OEM parts let you rest assured that you’re getting only the best quality available.

At Zeck Ford in Leavenworth, we also use high-quality aftermarket parts, if necessary, as long as we believe they meet our standards for excellence. If you have any questions about the parts we’ll be using to upgrade your vehicle, or if you’re interested in ordering new Ford accessories and parts after you purchase your vehicle, contact our Parts department.
