Dodge Caliber

Dodge Caliber

According to the experts, the car is a complete failure as far as performance and the cargo space in the class is concerned. It has an underpowered engine, feels as if you're driving a truck, and has a lousy fuel economy to its credit. Even the people it targeted - individuals or families shopping vehicles on a tight budget - did not seem taken in by the affordability.

And yet, a used Dodge Caliber Mainstreet is everything that you"d want in a decent family car. Surprisingly, its utility, flexibility, and innovative features found a place with a very different set of people altogether. The kids.

1. Roomy Interior = Picnics with Mommy/Daddy

The car's cabin is exceptional in this one and even adults are going to agree that the interior has nothing wrong with it. The front seat has plenty of space and two adult can fit in the rear easily too. But for your child, the Hatchback design means you'll be using the car for fun trips frequently. With the second row seats up, you get an additional 18.4 cubic feet to fit your gear and lunch basket easily inside, or even with the alternative configuration of folding the front passenger seat flat and letting them sit in the back, it's understandable why they feel so excited about the car.

2. Comfortable Seats = A Good Sleep

The seats are supportive and easy to get into. The materials used are of better quality than expected for such a reasonably priced car. Even the padding on the door armrest has been improved to have a more soft touch to it. How hard would it be then to find themselves a good position and fall asleep?

3. Tech Features and Cool Exterior = Good Ride + Showing off to Friends

Yeah, well, you can't blame them for this one. They are just kids. And even adults have been impressed with a used Caliber's list of improvements. It stands bigger with a bit of swagger lent by the sharp curves, the signature grille, and the huge aluminum wheels. Does it stand out? Of course it does, and before you ask, it does so for the better. Inside, features ranging from the basic audio and air conditioning systems to the Uconnect Phone, power outlet, beverage storage color, and the recent navigation radio with SIRIUS Travel Link are impressive. But it's really the optional Boston Acoustics system that steals the show with its two liftgate speakers, a subwoofer, and leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls for some real fun to accompany your outdoor activities.

Jeep Wrangler

Jeep Wrangler

Jeep's Wrangler is legendary, and its ôiconic used model comes well designed and well equipped for both off-road and over-the-road activities. The team at Kelly Risk Free in Easton encourages the locals to experience a thrilling ride out of it. You don't need to be a hardcore Jeep fan to understand the car, whether you ride off to beach, enjoy a weekend at the ski slope, or trust it as your everyday commute. This Jeep will serve you on every front.

The Powertrain

That's one of the major changes the model received. The brand new 3.6L Pentastar V6 generates 285 hp and 26 pounds-feet, which is a 40% increase from the previous engine. It's not only the individuals who"ve tried out the old and less powerful 3.8L V6 who can immediately feel the difference; you can too. Sitting behind the wheel, your Wrangler's going to hit 60 mph in less than 8.4 seconds.

Off-road, of course, you'll be stepping up on it with the 4WD and automatic transmission to support both fuel efficiency and enhanced performance, but know that the car's been tamed to drive and have fun on-road too. Either way, once you"ve stepped inside, there's no looking back.

The Interior

This is yet another area where upgrades have been extensive, a fact no one can guess by looking at the boxy, rugged-looking exterior with that seven-slot grille, fold-down shield, and removable doors details it has retained from previous generations.

Inside, a used Jeep Wrangler Sahara is an unbelievably sophisticated vehicle. With refreshed trims, new armrest, new steering wheel with integrated controls, and materials soft-to-touch, it almost has a businesslike look to it. The removable top is one of the favorite features; with a little cooling wind in your hair, who"d mind feeling the road imperfections inside? Open them up completely and your Jeep acts like a convertible SUV.

Other than that, standard equipment including tow hooks, fog lamps, compass, outdoor temperature gauge, automatic climate control, and heated mirrors and seats, and options like Sirius satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, and MyGIG music storage, make a loaded Sahara very appealing. The much-needed safety features include anti-lock brakes, Hill Start Assist, stability control, and Trailer Sway Control.

2010_Mitsubishi_Lancer

Mitsubishi Lancer

For all auto-fans out there, it's no surprise that the Mitsubishi Lancer lineup is about this whole range of compact sedans that are simultaneously a comfortable and sporty ride. Oh, and they are affordable too. In particular though, a used Lancer Ralliart, while not a common name or car, has been successful with drivers looking for performance-driven and stylish-looking cars.

Nurtured thus at Kelly Risk Free in Emmaus, it has people curious about what this hot stuff really is. Obviously, they couldn't have missed the sexy, absolute racy, body or the spruced up interior as they walk up to and around it. But cosmetic upgrades alone don't earn you the respect on road; they have no attitude on their own. To them, it was a ônice car and nothing exceptional.

Everything's on in the Comfort Menu

By having added a subtle rear spoiler and having reduced the size of the huge nose, the Lancer did a great job in making Ralliart a sporty sedan. And what's pleasing to note is that it was complemented by a dressed up yet aggressive interior. Ample space, huge windshield, and upright seats make for comfortable rides when you have to travel long distances. Controls on the dashboard that are easy to read and rear seats that fold limits distracted riving. Apart from the air conditioning, power accessories, tilt steering column, and rear defroster that it comes fitted with, goodies such as sunroof and the 315-watt Infinity audio system are optional and impressive to say the least.

Takeaway: It's a special car for its price.

A Used Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart - A Fun Drive with Extra Edge

The 2.4L engine fitted under the hood in the Ralliart model, producing 162 pound-feet torque at 4000 rpm and 162 hp, has a lot more power than the base trims. When you mate this sort of engine to the automatic transmission, you end up with a highly responsive car. A touch of throttle and you"d be cruising past everyone around town effortlessly. Standard safety gear for the car includes electronic brake-force distribution and ABS along with 4-wheel disc brakes so that the driver is able to call for safe stopping when situation demands.

Takeaway: It's willing and lively, crisp and competent and no hint of negative traits.

So now you know what a car with an attitude really is, why not come down by the Kelly Risk Free in Emmaus when you are in town.

2013-gmc-sierra

GMC Sierra

A luxury full-size pickup truck - an oxymoron much? And yet, they exist. The very example being a used GMC Sierra 2500HD. That in essence is what this pickup truck is. If you"ve been quarreling over and losing bets against your partner on this one, this is your chance back.

The majority of people have been ecstatic over this one, noting how its reliable, how just mere maintenance pays off for the car to love them back and perform just as they want. It's not exactly cheap, but the people love it for the ôoomph factor, for the comfortable seating, for its maneuverability, and last but not the least, for its towing ability. In simple words, it's an awesome truck and will get any job done. Kelly Risk Free in Allentown therefore, has no problem recommending it to its valuable customers.

GMC Sierra 2500HD - The Concept

Just in case you don't know, the HD part here has nothing to do with the LCD or plasma TVs; it simply means heavy duty. The model was completely redesigned for the year, improved to meet the market requirements of a "professional grade" truck.

GMC Sierra 2500HD - Value For Money

The vehicle is fitted with a 300 hp 6L V8 engine as standard. Paired with a 5-speed manual transmission, the truck is a real pressure to drive in all conditions. The only drawback is that the engine knocks for the initial couple of minutes while it warms up, but most people are willing to overlook it for the smooth show that comes next. If you are a ôreal truck lover as they say it, then you"d know this truck is not a lemon much less a toy. This is not to ask you to abuse it; but to imply that a scratch or dent won't hurt it.

Not to say that features like cruise control, air conditioning, AM/FM stereo, power accessories, airbags, ABS brakes, and daytime running lights for the SL or SLE trims in either Regular, Crew Cab, or Extended body style, for the comfort and convenience of passengers are favorite among them. Besides that, the clean layout to this 4dr, 5-passenger cabin, and a cargo bed that goes 6-8 feet to haul passengers and stuff alike makes it worth buying.

Want to feel invincible? Come down by the Kelly Risk Free dealership when in Allentown. We also offer services in Bethlehem, Easton, and Emmaus.

Nissan Versa

Nissan Versa

While SUVs and luxury sedans are the ultimate dream, they don't come easy when you want a car that's not only fuel-efficient but also a practical drive. That's where the used Nissan Versa steps into the game- a package complete with comfort and convenience, convincing buyers why they can have it all in a small automobile and at a lower cost as well.

We at Kelly Risk Free in Emmaus have your best interests at heart and we prove it yet again by offering you another opportunity to evaluate this little beauty right here. The used Nissan Versa is a car for the new generation.

You'll like This Car Because

It's true when people say, ôto each his own. But before we toast you for a miscalculated decision, read in detail why we believe the Versa is a worthy showstopper.

  1. It's Nimble and Offers a Quality Ride

The hatchback comes fitted with only a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine and it manages to perform decently for its class when coupled with either a 4-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission and a front-wheel drive. Its acceleration is quick, and it's handling both responsive and stable, whether you drive on expressways or around corners. You feel confident. Plus the fact that you can't feel most road imperfections inside the cabin makes it an overall pleasant ride.

  1. It's Smart and Well-Equipped

The 4-dr hatchback is visually exciting and stands out among the crowd. Versatile, it's even easy to enter only to be greeted by a surprisingly roomy interior with abundant headroom and foot and knee space for everyone. The large seats are even comfortable for most people who are stuck with long drives on daily basis.

Other plus points include high quality materials used in cabin, easy to use and simple controls, and for a budget-friendly car, goodies like power mirrors, stereo with auxiliary jack input and 6-disc CD changer, and tilt-steering wheel make it a value-packed purchase. An optional Power Plus Package brings cruise control, power locks and windows, padded door armrests, and keyless entry. Safety comes from the active head restraints, the 6 standard airbags, anti-lock brakes and tire pressure monitoring.

Don't just reserve your shopping to weekends only. When in Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, or Emmaus, drop by the Kelly Risk Free for a test drive of a pre-owned 2011 Nissan Versa and tell us if we"ve been wrong.
