Car dealer

Simply put, you had to come home plus one.
That is exactly how your husband answered the car dealer’s question when he asked what you were looking for. Your husband worked his way through the complicated explanation that at the very least you were looking for one car. If you traded in your van, the vehicle that had over 150,000 miles, you were looking for two cars. Either way, you had to leave the lot plus one car. With your younger teenage daughter just turning 16, you needed one more vehicle in your family. The fact that your daughter was in college 12 hours away and had her car down there meant that your younger daughter was going to need something to drive.
Originally, the plan was for you to get a new car, your husband would drive (more…)

You have always had dog friendly cars that includes a space for a small kennel in the back and easy access when you stop. And while the kids could probably make the whole trip at once, you simply cannot ask the family pet to do the same (more…)

Automotive leads

If you are in the automobile financing space, then one of the things that you should watch out for is that perfect balance between giving your customers the right range of services while also being able to minimize the element of risk in your dealings for the sake of your own business. This is a delicate balance that many companies fail to get right and suffer the consequences, and this is one area where you need to treat lightly if you want to avoid pitfalls of any kind. A large number of dealers and financing companies are now looking at the subprime automotive loan market with a lot of interest, and for all the right reasons.

4 Benefits To Self-Driving Vehicles

Hi tech auto

It would be a blessing if we could have self-driving vehicles. Just think of the beauty that automated vacuums have done for us. Now multiply that by 100 and you will see the great things that could happen if our cars and our working equipment worked on their own. If you need further convincing, here’s four examples of the benefits these machines could have.

  1. No More Tired Drivers
    The most important idea is that we would no longer have to worry about unsafe drivers. We could feel better knowing that our roads are safe from people who would put us at danger. One type of driver that would no longer be an issue would be sleepy drivers. We would no longer have to fear that a driver would fall asleep why driving a car.

So Many Used Cars, So Little Time

Used chevrolet

Cars. We use them every day. Some, to get from point A to point B, others for special occasions, like weddings and even funerals. They are perhaps the number one relied-upon technology, and it certainly shows in the numbers. For instance, there are about 253 million cars on the road today. To put to scale, that is nearly 30 times the population of New York City. With that many cars in operation, it’s little wonder there are so many used cars for sale.

When a dealer posts used cars for sale, they really mean it. In 2015, United States used car sales hit record numbers, and overall sales have grown by 55% in the last five years. In total, almost 40 million used cars are sold by private sellers and dealerships every year. One could attribute the used car boom to Honda: in 2016, the Accord line sold 344,000 u (more…)

Even if you prepare with the best tires, regular oil changes, and transmission inspections before winter arrives, it is also important to have your vehicles inspected for the following spring routine maintenance.

Oil change

If you had an oil change in the fall to prepare for the winter, it is likely that it is time for another oil change in the spring. Winter weather conditions tend to put more effort on the important mechanical parts of your vehicles, so this oil change is more important than ever. However, the exact time that your vehicle requires an oil change depends (more…)
