McKinney, TX, 06-24-2014 – Chrysler Jeep Dodge City of McKinney helped raise $1,110 in funding for Lawson Early Childhood School with Chrysler brand’s Drive for the Kids program. The fundraising event was held on May 20th 2014, in conjunction with a school event.

“Drive for the Kids is a mutually beneficial program. We are pleased to support our local schools, and enjoy demonstrating a terrific, world class product,” said Bubba Thompson, Sales Manager of Chrysler Jeep Dodge City of McKinney. “Parents are genuinely interested in testing our 2014 Chrysler Town & Country minivan with all of the advanced safety, technology, and economy features, and we are happy to help raise extra dollars for the school. Drive for the Kids allows us the opportunity to work together for the kids and everyone has a great time!”

LAWSONPTAParticipants earned a $10 contribution to the school on their behalf from the Chrysler brand by taking a brief test drive in a 2014 model Town & Country minivan—highest ranked in loyalty 12 years in a row—as well as other Chrysler vehicles made available for test drives thanks to Chrysler Jeep Dodge City of McKinney.

At the conclusion of the 2014 program, the school with the highest number of test drives in each one of the five geographic regions (Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Central, and West) will win an additional $5,000, for a total of $25,000 in additional funding from Chrysler through the Drive for the Kids program.


Chrysler supports schools in the communities where the company does business. Since 1993, when Chrysler introduced Drive for the Kids, Chrysler dealers have worked with parents and educators in communities across the nation. Chrysler has contributed over $5 million directly to local schools for student needs, from playgrounds and field trips, to reading programs and new computers. Chrysler is proud of this tradition of community involvement. For more information, visit

Keeping Your Car Cool Throughout Summer

July is rapidly approaching and the temperature is steadily rising each day. As much as we Texans love summertime, we also simultaneously hate it and the triple-degree heat that comes with it. Texas heat is rough on people, but it is even tougher on your vehicles. Courtesy of Dodge City of McKinney here are a few tips on keeping your car safe and cool during the summer.

First are a few things you can do that may seem obvious, but you may not realize how important they are to the health of your vehicle during the summer months. A window shade not only makes your vehicle more pleasant to enter after sitting in the sun for extended periods of time, but it also protects the interior of your vehicle from fading cloth or cracked leather. Another thing you should do is park in the shade. Parking in the shade is a pretty obvious thing to do, but what many people might not think about is parking where the shade will be. When you arrive to the office in the morning you might be tempted to grab those spots covered in shade, but late in the afternoon when the heat really hits the shade may be somewhere else and that’s where you should park.

roadtripAnother crucial thing you can do is have your car checked to ensure it’s safe for the summer weather. Your car’s cooling system is critical to summer driving. Your cooling system strives to keep the engine at a constant 200 degrees Fahrenheit to protect your engine against corrosion, provide more fuel combustion, and maintain proper oil viscosity. Unfortunately, in hot weather, your coolant could reach over 250 degrees, causing your vehicle to overheat. Having your cooling system checked for leaks or cracks in the hoses is crucial to ensure you don’t face costly engine repairs in the future.

The next topic is one that we in Texas constantly worry about: Air Conditioning. Before your air conditioning quits cooling, you can have your vehicle checked for worn or damaged belts, dirty filters, low refrigerant levels, and blocked condenser fins.

Bringing your vehicle in to the service department of Dodge City of McKinney for a summer check-up can help keep you cool on the road and avoid costly repairs in the future. Visit them today 700 South Central Expressway in McKinney, Texas or give them a call at 972.569.9650 today!
