Are you properly Insured?

BridgetonAt All Star Used Jeep Dealer near Bridgeton, we are committed to keeping our blog readers up to date with the latest information surrounding the automotive industry.  That’s why we are pleased to bring you this information on being properly insured.

The law requires us to have a certain amount of insurance for many different reasons. It is a requirement to have car insurance. If a police officer pulls you over and finds out that you are without insurance there is a chance you could get a ticket with heavy fines. They may even order your vehicle to be impounded right there on the spot. This can also lead to having your license suspended.

To obtain car insurance contact your insurance agency to make sure you have the right kind and right amount of insurance you need.

Having insurance may seem like a hassle at times, but if you happen to have an accident it can save you a lot of time and money.  If you have an accident and you are at fault, having insurance will keep you from having to pay yearly cost if someone is hurt, if damage is done to the other persons car, or even in the case of a death from an accident.

If you are in an accident and you are the one who gets hurt or has to have repairs done to your car and the other person does not have insurance and you also do not carry insurance, you may be faced with paying medical bills and car repair bills for  years! Yes, you can sue them, but what if they are destitute and can not afford it? Having insurance in a time like that can help you out.

If you are in an accident and damages are done to the other car because of something you did, having insurance will help pay for these damages so that you don’t have to pay for it out of your own pocket.

Fuel Efficiency Vehicles Still Tops

EllisvilleAll Star Dodge Dealer near Ellisville is committed to keeping its blog readers up to date with the latest information surrounding the automotive industry.  That’s why we are pleased to bring you this article today about the vehicles consumers are really searching for.  In today’s economy, Americans are looking for a financial relief wherever they can get it.  So news of oil prices falling as bleak reports on U.S. job growth and manufacturing heightened, came as a welcome sigh of relief. Despite the barrage of information about a slowing global economy some are able to breathe a little easier knowing the gas prices are coming down.  Benchmark oil dropped $3.49 to $83.04 per barrel last week in New York. Brent crude lost $3.49, or 3.4 percent, to $98.32 per barrel. This is the lowest price for crude since February 2011. But despite this news consumers are still looking for vehicles with better miles per gallon and newer technologies.  They just can’t seem to get enough of the vehicles that boast fuel efficiency and the slow economy isn’t stopping them from flocking to car dealers to make their purchases.  Even though the price of gas may be dropping, consumers aren’t willing to place all their financial eggs in that basket.  There has been such a fluctuation of prices over the last decade and consumers aren’t taking risks.  They are being very careful to pick vehicles that are either already good on gas mileage, or they are looking for additional ways to save on gas, such as electric vehicles or fuel efficient tires. All Star Dodge can help you find the vehicle that is right for you and your family.  We will meet with you to discuss all your needs. Stop in today to meet with one of our friendly staff. We’d love to show you our fuel efficient options on all of our latest vehicles.

Apple’s Siri Technology Has Sights on the Auto Industry

St. LouisAll Star Dodge, Dealer of the New Dodge Ram Truck near St. Louisis committed to keeping its blog readers up to date with the latest news surrounding the automotive industry.  That’s why we want to bring you this article. Last week the developers at Apple met for their annual software developer’s conference and little did those in the automotive industry expect to be the center of attention at this conference. Apple announced that it would be partnering with several automakers to bring a system to newer model cars called ‘Eyes Free” and it will use the same proprietary technology that Apple uses on the iPhone 4GS called Siri. Siri is a personal assistant that resides on all Apple iPhone 4GS models.  It responds to voice commands, rather than typed commands and can do everything from look up a friends phone number, to playing a song from your iTunes list to doing an internet search.  This technology is a welcome addition to the current technologies available on various models of vehicles. In today’s society, American’s are constantly looking for way to increase their daily production.  For many people, that means hours of multi-tasking. Unfortunately, the accident rates for accidents caused by cell phone use or distracted driving, show that drivers are doing most of their multi-tasking from their car.  This new ‘eyes free’ feature will allow drivers to continue to multi-task, without ever having to take their eyes off the road.  According to Engadget quoting Scott Forstall, of Apple’s iOS operating system, a long list of manufacturers have already signed on and Chrysler is included.  In fact, models with this new feature could show up as early as this time next year. One thing for sure, we sure will be keeping our eyes open for it.
