Buying a Dodge Dart Sedan For Your New Teen Driver

2016-dart-vlp-gallery-01

 

Have a new teen driver? We do and buying a car for them has been a headache. Especially since college is just a few months away and they need it so they can get around. One of the cars we have been looking at is the Dodge Dart Sedan. It is a great little car that is good on gas, has an excellent safety rating, and, of course, a great entertainment package that every teen is looking for! Holden Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram has a pretty blue one on the website and you should check it out!

 

Below are some other great reasons to buy your teen a Dodge Dart!

Comprehensive Warranty

With a three year or 36,000 mile comprehensive plan and a 5 year or 100,000 mile powertrain plan, Dodge’s warranties ensure buyers are well protected in the event of any defect.

Transmission Options

The 2015 Dodge Dart offers two transmission options, one six speed manual, which is standard, and a six speed automatic, available upon request as an optional add on. For the more performance minded buyer, the standard manual is a nice touch, especially given that it is a six speed. The automatic, on the other hand, offers the convenience of not having to actively shift.

Optional Engine Upgrades

While both the base engine and the optional upgrade are inline four cylinder engines, the upgrade features a turbocharger system. The base engine is a 2.0L, whereas the turbocharged engine is a 1.4L. This smaller, yet more powerful engine provides significant advantages over the base in both torque and acceleration, particularly from a stop. If you are going to purchase a Dart, this upgrade is highly advisable, as it will greatly increase your satisfaction with the driving experience. On higher trims, there is also the option of a 2.4L engine which provides more horsepower than either of the other two at 184HP (in comparison to 160 on the two smaller engines).

Excellent Safety Rating

While not always the first thought in the mind of the potential car buyer, safety is a hugely important matter, and the 2015 Dart delivers on it. Besides the airbag system, which features no less than ten bags set to deploy to protect driver and passengers alike in the event of a collision, the Dart can be equipped with parking assistance, blind spot monitoring systems, and even windshield wipers that will automatically come on if moisture is detected. All of these options combine to make the Dart a supremely safe vehicle to drive.

Excellent Entertainment System

The 2015 Dart’s console and entertainment system are state of the art. With nearly everything now digital and touch screen based, the console offers supreme ease of use. As for the entertainment system, CD players are no longer a standard option, but the new system offer connectivity to nearly every type of smart phone or MP3 player.

Nissan Rogue named Best Buy by Consumer Digest and Best Value by Edmunds.

Not a whole lot else can top one’s list when it comes to saving money on today’s gas prices. If you’re still settled on buying a hybrid then the Altima is the next best thing.

The 4-cylinder model car gets 27 miles per gallon on the street.

The look of the Nissan Altima is not that of your average looking midsize family sedan. In fact, it is a cross between sports and luxury car. Having been slightly tweaked, the Altima’s style is bold yet simple with its striking new grille, halogen headlights and metallic wheels. The outward appearance only beckons prospective buyers to take a look inside.

 

The Nissan Altima is a great family vehicle that you would be proud to drive around in. Just be prepared for all the attention you are going to get when your friends want to know where you got the new ride!

Get Your Car Ready For Summer

Winter is almost over and it is time to start dreaming about summer. My dreams consist of driving to the beach. Before we can go anywhere though we need to check our car over and make sure it is in tip-top condition!

 

Below are just a few tips to get your car ready for summer!

 

Empty the trunk

If you’ve been carrying emergency winter equipment such as bags of salt or sand, a shovel or an ice scraper, store them in the garage. Extra weight in the vehicle burns more fuel.

Consider an inspection

Getting the car checked in the spring and fall will catch minor problems before they turn into major ones. Have a technician check the radiator for leaks and coolant strength, ensure that hoses and belts are in good condition, that the air conditioning is working properly, and that the brakes and steering components aren’t worn. If you’re overdue on your oil change, get it done.

Open the windows and listen

Turn off the stereo and listen to your vehicle. There shouldn’t be any unusual sounds, such as brakes that grind or squeal, knocking sounds under the hood, or grinding or banging when you turn the wheel or go over a bump.

Get Your Car Ready For Spring

Is Your Car Ready For Spring?

Are you sick of winter yet? I know I am! But the end is almost near and soon it will be time for those glorious road trips. The windows rolled down, some good music playing on the radio, and a long stretch of highway in front of you. Hurry up spring, we miss you!
Of course you can’t go on those long road trips without getting your car prepared. Here are some quick tips to make sure you get to where you’re going and not sitting on the side of the road.
Check Your Tire Tread

Checking your tread is pretty easy. To check the depth simply place the edge of a penny into the tread of each tire. If the tread covers Abe Lincoln’s head you are good to go. If not, then you need new tires.
Check Your Battery

If your battery is more than four years old and sometimes takes a few seconds to start your motor, you should take it to your local auto parts supplier to get tested and, if necessary, replaced.
Top Off Your Coolant

Make sure your coolant is at the proper level. Most cars have a fluid level gauge, so consult your owner’s manual to find out how to check the level on your particular model. Make sure you only open the coolant cap when your car is cool. Opening the cap when your car has been driven can be very dangerous.

8 Ultimate Must Haves For Your Car

My Dad always told me that there are quite a few things you should keep in your car at all times. That advice has helped me a lot over the years.

Below is some things everyone should have in their car at all times!

Booster (jumper) cables
These can enable you to get your car started with a dead battery (if a good Samaritan comes along) and also enables you to help someone out in a fix.

First aid kit (and manual)
This can be vital if you’re in an accident and someone has injuries. Slowing down bleeding quickly can mean the difference between walking something off and going into shock.

Fix­a­flat
If your tire has a pretty rapid leak, Fix­a­flat can often provide just enough to get you to a repair station. I recommend at least two cans.

Tire repair kit
If the tire has deflated rapidly, a tire repair kit makes it possible for you to patch up the tire well enough for a short period.
