My experience was fantastic. I came in to look around and found a nice car. Donny got me pre-approved to test drive the car. Original I was going to have to make the down payment in two parts. When I came in with the bulk of the down payment and left,Donny called me back in about 30 minutes saying "Come get your car girl". I couldn't believe it. Not only was I able to get my car but Eddie also dropped the cost of the car. This place is "da bomb!!!"

Winterize  Your  Vehicle  to  Retain  Value


It’s that time of year again—the time of year where Autumn will soon evolve into Winter, and your car has to be prepared for the upcoming, callous winter conditions—yes, it’s time to winterize your car.  It doesn’t take a great deal to winterize your car, especially if you’re a D.I.Yer, and it’s usually inexpensive to do so.  Here’s a ‘To-Do’ list for winterizing your car to give you a push in the right direction.

Use a lighter weight oil – This allows the oil to flow better in cold temps

Replace radiator hoses and thermostat

Replace the fuel filter

Switch to all-weather wiper blades and winter washer fluid

Purchase new tires or snow tires

Replace brakes

Check and/or replace battery & belts

Test 4WD function to make sure it’s working

Prepare an emergency kit to keep in the car at all times

For those of you who have never prepared a winter emergency kit for your car in case you’re ever stranded, here are a few things you should include.

Extra blankets

Clean, dry clothes including shoes/boots

Flashlight and batteries

Jumper cables

Washer fluid and coolant/antifreeze

Shovel, broom, and ice scraper

An extra cell phone and/or car phone charger

Bag of salt, cat liter, or ice melt

Toolbox and/or toolkit

Now you may be asking—what are the benefits of winterizing your car?  Winterizing your car will allow you to be prepared in the event that you do become stuck or stranded, it makes the harsh winter driving and weather conditions more bearable for your car, and your car will drive better and will be up-to-date on routine maintenance.  Perhaps the greatest benefit of winterizing your car is that its value can increase as well.


How  Your  Car’s  Value  Increases  When  You  Winterize

We all know the moment you purchase your car and drive it off the dealer’s lot; its value begins depreciating, right?  Well, now you’re going to learn how winterizing your car restores some of its value and appreciation.  Autos.com explains five ways to maintain your car’s value; keep your car clean, perform routine maintenance, avoid having accidents, minimize customization, and use Kelley Blue Book to buy a car that will uphold its value.  Part of performing routine maintenance includes winterizing your car.

Because winterizing reduces repair costs and overall part failure and/or wear and tear; it also increases your car’s Trade-In Value.  Your trade-in value is exactly what it sounds like—the value of your current car when you use it as a ‘trade-in’ to purchase your new car.  The less repair history and engine or part failure history your car has, the more it’s worth.

Believe it or not, winterizing can also improve gas mileage, and as we’re all aware of, the number of miles a car has on it, and its MPG capabilities are major factors we take into consideration to determine a car’s worth when we’re at the dealer shopping for a new one.  Some of the routine maintenance that is included in the winterizing process like changing the fuel filter and buying new tires contributes greatly to improving your car’s fuel economy and MPG.  When fuel economy and MPGs are improved, your car goes farther with less fuel because it burns less fuel, which eliminates high mileage and a low MPG, and ultimately adds to your car’s value.

Winterizing your car reduces repairs, repair costs, and allows your car to retain many of its OEM parts, which is another contributing factor to your car’s value.  When your car has most of its OEM parts, it says that you have taken care of your car by maintaining the routine maintenance at the scheduled intervals, and that everything is in working order.

So now you not only know what goes into winterizing your car, but also how winterizing increases the value of your car.  As previously mentioned, the Fall season is upon us and quickly transgressing into the Winter season—now is the time winterize your car.  It’s always best to begin winterizing between September and October while the weather and temperatures are still ideal for the D.I.Yers and before the dreadful, ‘dead-of-winter’ weather finally arrives and settles in—it’ll be too late then.  Also remember that winterizing your car isn’t a costly maintenance procedure, in most cases it could be done for approximately $200 to $250, and if you’re that ‘Do-it-yourselfer’, you could more than likely cut your costs in half.

Driving ‘Green’


The 21st century has never been a ‘greener’ world—every time you turn around you’re hearing “green this”, “green that” from everything from the fruits and foods we eat to the cars we drive; it has to be ‘green’.  Every time we turn on the TV or radio, we’re seeing and hearing commercials for saving the Earth, reducing pollution, and living—‘green’, right?  But it’s much easier said than done, or is it, what can one person, you, what difference can you make, especially with bouncing gas pump prices?  Well, this is today’s discussion, how to drive ‘green’.

First, let’s look at being ‘green’.  What does it really mean to go ‘green’.  The new definition of ‘green’ simply means utilizing resources and alternatives in as many aspects of everyday living as we possibly can to limit consumption of the planet’s more natural and irreplaceable resources.  Again, this means from the foods we eat, hence the growing popularity in ‘organic’ foods, to using ‘paperless’ or electronic/e-billing options, to the type of cars we drive, such as the growing popularity with Hybrids, or how and how much we drive.  It is our hope that by going ‘green’, we will preserve and protect the Earth; for example, if everyone turned to e-billing, no more trees would be cut down to make paper.  So what can you do become a ‘green’ driver? Let’s take a look.


Driving  Green – Reduce  Vehicle  Weight

You’re probably thinking how in the world to you reduce the weight of car, right?  This is actually really simple—remove any extra crap you don’t really need or use while you’re driving.  If the trunk of your car is bogged down with a lot of extra stuff like heavy tools and sports equipment, take that stuff out!  The heavier your car is, the more it will require and consume.  Naturally, the lighter your car is, it will have an easier load and travel farther with the same or less amount of fuel you were using before.  Remember this; you’re losing 2% of fuel for every extra 100 pounds of weight added to your car.  That may not seem like much, but when you’re filling up two or more times a week, you’ll know why.


Driving  Green – Tire  Pressure

Believe it or not, tire pressure also plays a critical role in how much of a load is placed on your car and how much fuel it consumes.  When your tires are properly inflated, it lightens the load of your car, and therefore increases your fuel efficiency.  Know the rule of thumb for tire pressure; lower temperatures 40° or less, will automatically deflate your tires 2-3psi, so you should set them 2-3psi higher than the requirements.  Warmer temperatures, 80° or higher will automatically inflate your tires 2-3psi, so set them 2-3psi lower than requirements.


Driving  Green – Freeways,  Stop & Gos,  60mph

Constant stop-and-gos that usually occur during ‘city driving’ or ‘street driving’ will quickly decrease fuel economy because every time you stop at a traffic signal or stop sign, or car is to rebuild the momentum to begin moving again, and this consumes additional fuel.  It’s best to drive the freeway whenever possible because it greatly reduces the chance of constant stop-and-gos, which saves fuel.  The EPA has reported that your car reaches its maximum fuel efficiency at approximately 60mph, but that fuel efficiency drops 6% for every 5mph over 60mph, so keep your freeway speed to 60mph.


Driving  Green – Carpool

Yes, we know, you’ve heard this one before; well that’s because carpooling has proven to be one of the most effective ways to reduce overall air pollution, traffic, and releasing of vehicle emissions.  The concept goes like this; when people carpool, less vehicles are on the road, people are saving fuel because they’re driving their car less than normal, and the less vehicles that are on the road, there will be less vehicle emissions released into the air/atmosphere, which will ultimately help in the fight in reducing pollution and saving the Ozone Layer.


Driving  Green – Mid-Grade  &  Premium  Fuel  Only

That’s right, pay a little bit more at the gas pump per visit, and use the mid-grade fuel or premium fuel.  Again, you’ll spend a little more at the pump per visit, but you’ll also save a great deal more in the long run and have fewer trips to the pump.  Mid-grade and premium fuels are better and safer for the environment, as well as your car, and they burn slower, which means your gas will last longer, and you spend less at the gas pump in the long run.

So there you have it, 5 great ways to start driving ‘green’, however, if you’re a true environmentalist, or just someone who has decided to fully pursue this; you can also purchase a Hybrid vehicle or vehicles equipped with EcoBoost engines.

Used Cars Charlotte NC

The term ‘Used Car’ often generates a negative connotation within the minds of consumers, which is nothing short of disappointing in this day and age. The image of the Used Car dealer is slowly fading to represent what the industry has become over the last 6 years.

I mention the last 6 years due to the downturn in the economy and the competition that grew as a result of it. No longer were dealers going to be able to stay in business with poor quality vehicles and even poorer quality customer service. The good just got better, and the bad went out of business.

The best of Charlotte’s used car dealerships are now on the same par as many franchise dealerships when it comes to vehicle preparation, financing option and customer care after the used car has been purchased. Finally, one of the largest attractions to the franchise dealership when purchasing a used vehicle was the warranty that the dealer was willing to offer. The best of the dealerships will now have a range of warranties to offer you, and in the same way that we would insure our vehicles against damage in an accident, these warranties cover you encase of mechanical failure.

Charlotte’s dealerships are varied in regards to the types of vehicles that they specialize in selling. For the consumer, this can be a very positive business practice. Dealers who focus their buying attention on to a specific segment of the market are much more likely to have honed their skills and developed in-depth knowledge of the vehicles which they will be successful with.

Although the economic outlook has changed and developed dramatically over the last decade, the overall quality of the vehicles that were produced over the last two decades is a dramatic improvement in comparison to the 80’s & 90’s. One of the driving factors behind this large advancement is due to the number of imported vehicles from Germany and Japan. To be able to compete with American made vehicles, the foreign companies had to produce vehicles of a higher standard to entice buyers from their American made vehicle.

It isn’t a well-known fact, however vehicles sold in the United States have the shortest recommended distance between oil changes! Many European Countries have service intervals 3 times longer than in the US. Overall the quality of the engineering that vehicles are being produced with currently is multiples of times better than even 10 years ago, for a fraction of the cost. As a result, even 4cyl models are now easily capable of hundreds of thousands of miles, as long as regular maintenance is being carried out. The used car market has changed dramatically as a result of these engineering developments.

With higher initial quality, far superior fit and finish to both internal and external vehicle cosmetics, used cars have never been better quality than they are now. Granted, prices of used vehicles are at an all time high, and this makes purchasing your used car from a reputable dealer all the more important.

Franchise dealers have been offering and promoting their warranties with used vehicles for a number of years now. The best of the Non-franchise Used Car Dealerships are also now happy to provide warranties on their vehicles. Prior to being promoted for sale on the used car lots, vehicles will have to pass a rigorous inspection with fully trained technicians. Dealers live and die by their reputation and when a vehicle has a substantial issue, and is spotted by one of their technicians, they would much rather send it back to the auction, than pass it on to one of their customers. This is especially relevant when the dealer offers in house financing. The last thing a Buy Here Pay Here, or Special Financing Dealer wants to do is sell you a suspect Used Car and then for you to have issues with it.
