Car Saving Tips

A penny saved is a penny earned. Preventive maintenance is the most important thing a car owner can do to ensure his ride remains in pristine condition for a long while. Preventive maintenance in itself is an act that everyone believes should be practiced. The steps on how to do it though are rather unclear to almost everyone. In this article, we'll try and clear that up.

Pay Attention on your Tires

One of the most important tips for preventive maintenance is paying attention to your tires. You need to get your tires rotated, balanced and their alignment checked. When and how many times to do it is different for every vehicle and the amount of usage. Ensuring your tires wear evenly is important in ensuring a smooth drive and saving money on fuel efficiency. Changing all your tires at once can prove to be costly and so these tricks can help you save a fortune.

Change and Check the Oil regularly.

If you know the difference between clean oil and muddy, murky oil, you can save your vehicle from a lot of uncalled for problems. Most cars nowadays have an electronic gauge to check the oil color, some may have a dipstick – both tools are effective to check oil color. Oil color helps you preempt possible problems since an unusual change in color is an abnormality.

Charge your Battery and Keep it Clean

Although a large number of batteries these days are self-reliant when it comes to maintenance, it is still necessary to check for leaks in the battery or for any deposits near the battery contacts. It is important to realize that batteries need to be charged at least once a month. If your car is not in use, ensure that it is started once a week to keep its battery from discharging.

Keep an Eye on the Spark Plugs

The best way to keep an eye on engine efficiency is through your spark plugs. If the car's spark plugs are buildup covered, or have worn out, this means you engine isn't working efficiently. An inefficient engine can not only you cost you money in greater fuel consumption but it can also lead to major problem in the car's engine.

Inspect your Car

This is the most basic tip in preemptive maintenance. You need to go and check everything in your car from lights to tires to wind shield wipers periodically. It is better to stay ahead of a problem than to find yourself surprised. If you see anything that is alien to the ordinary, you need to take action on it right away.

I have a 1994 Buick Park Avenue and it is still in a healthy condition because all your car needs from you is a little maintenance.

Dodge Dakota SLT

This blog post is from a guest author Joe who bought a car Dodge Dakota SLT 2006 model from us and wanted to share his story.

Ever since Dodge's introduction into the truck market, there is no parallel to its quality. The Dodge Dakota performs on the road like a beast on the move. I bought a truck at Kelly risk free and have enjoyed my experience every bit. The pre 2006 model of Dodge had gotten a complete redesign and yet the Dodge Dakota 2006 features a number of changes that make the Dodge experience a ride that's smooth as silk but carries plenty of torque.

Features and Interior Designs

The Dodge Dakota garners a lot of rave reviews because of its car-like driving position. The inside controls are user-friendly and easy to access. The cabins are characteristically spacious, and the aluminum and white face gauges give it a sleek look. Dakota can easy become the family picnic car due to its accommodation spaces.

How is the Drive?

Once you are inside the beast, it's as calm as anything you'll ever drive. Unlike other trucks, the Dakota remains at peace irrespective of the speed you drive it at, owing to the large amount of insulation from wind and road noise. The exhaust can sometimes give you a little grumble but that's about the only noise you'll ever hear that you don't want to. Dodge is very good in corners, being tight and responsive, its chassis feel stable and it can soak up the bumps in the terrain with ease.

Safety

When you say you drive a truck, people usually go back to thinking you are a monster truck driver and start to fear for your safety, that happens to me a lot. There are no such issues with the Dakota SLT though. It sports up to the mark safety features that include standard front airbags, side curtain air bags, and an electronic system that responds to accidents. The Dodge Dakota received 5 stars for safety of front passenger in 2006.

Inspired by Dakota, Dodge Dakota is essentially a beast that gives you the experience of a horse ride; such is the dexterity and smoothness of its drive. The Dodge Dakota is a ride made for the American truck enthusiasts. It is the perfect combination of car-like handling, sedan capacity, and a light hauling capability.

I bought my Dodge Dakota from Kelly Risk Free and I have enjoyed my decision to the fullest. I recommend you to visit Kelly Risk free in Lehigh Valley and get the best deals on Cars and trucks.

Dodge Dart

Used Dodge Dart

As we begin our second installment of our test-drive series, Kelly Risk Free has decided to continue our focus on the smaller sedan models that have become so popular in Allentown and Bethlehem. Today we will focus on one of the best deals at our dealership, especially for our potential buyers who want a little extra ôkick in their subcompact. A used Dodge Dart with less than 35,000 miles on the odometer is waiting for a great test drive and owner. As potential buyers walk up to the bright silver metallic exterior of this Dart, the luster of the special Rallye exterior trim and its shiny 17-inch alloy wheels will amaze them. The aggressive touch that the additional foglights offer the vehicle's grill will please fans that love high-performing subcompact.

An unforgettable interior design

Using the keyless entry to slide into the height-adjustable driver seat, drivers will immediately notice the special Rallye interior trim that partners well with the light beige dash and seat colors. Both the power windows feature and a four-speaker sound system with a CD player will provide the necessary comfort for long trips. The Rallye package also adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls. This provides surprising hand comfort during turns and parking.

An impressive powertrain with effective fuel economy.

A 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 160 horsepower and 148 pound feet of torque powers this used 2013 Dodge Dart. In performance testing, the Dart climbed from zero to 60 mph in 9.9 seconds. In a real life test drive, potential buyers will find that it accelerates much faster than that rating. Fuel efficiency; however, is as advertised. With its estimated fuel economy sitting at around 35 miles per gallon owners shouldn't be surprised to find that this Dart is the choice for all road trips.
