The program was created by both FCA and the Detroit Eastside Community Collaborative to help recognize students in Detroit that improve their academic performance, attendance, and good citizenship skills during the school year.  Those who participated in the program were given a number of prizes including new bikes, helmets, locks and new books.  According to Jody Trapasso, Senior Vice President – External Affairs, FCA North America and President of the FCA Foundation, “The progress that these students have made in the classroom and as good citizens is another reason to be hopeful about Detroit’s future.  We hope these students continue on the path to success, and also take some time out to enjoy their new bikes and books.” In total, 400 students received new bikes.

Car Seat Laws In Missouri

Baby Girl Sitting In CarParents of small children are often confused and overwhelmed by the thought of having to choose and use a child safety seat.  Not only do you need to know which type of seat to purchase, but it also needs to be properly installed and replaced often as your child grows.  In addition, parents need to understand the laws that apply to the state in which they live and travel.  Today, the team at All-Star Dodge Ram near Glendale presents information on the laws pertaining to drivers in the state of Missouri.

In the state of Missouri, it is required that all children under the age of 4 be restrained in a child safety seat.  All child safety seats being used by Missouri drivers must also carry the proper approval label issued by the United States Department of Transportation.  This label is so important because it indicates that a seat meets Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

Once a child is between the ages of 4 and 8, they must move into a booster-style safety seat. Before moving into a booster, a child must also weigh a minimum of 40 pounds and measure in at under 4 feet 9 inches tall.  If your child does not meet all of the guidelines it is required of the parent to keep them in their current child safety seat.  Remember to also consult the owner’s manual of both your vehicle and the one that come with the seat to be sure your child is being properly secured.

When purchasing your next family vehicle, be sure to consult a Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram sales consultant near Glendale first!  The Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram lineup of cars, trucks, SUVs, and minivans offers all of the latest innovations in safety and security.  These features keep both you and your kids safe beyond the use of child safety seats and provide the best chance at surviving a crash.  Come by to check out all we have to offer today!

A Review Of Car Seat Basics

little boy in car safety seatWhen a child safety seat is used and installed properly, these easy-to-use devices can reduce the risk of death by up to 71 percent.  This fact in and of itself make car seats a must for all families with young children.  Today, the team at All-Star Dodge Ram near Oakville will bring you some top tips related to child safety seats and their proper usage.

  • Top Tip #1 – When shopping for your child’s safety seat be sure to purchase a seat that is made for your child’s specific age, weight, and height.  Your child will need to meet all of the criteria on order to use the seat you purchase.
  • Top Tip #2 – Once you have the right seat, be sure to read the owner’s manual to get information on properly securing your child in the seat.  Make sure the seat is adjusted as needed for your child and that all straps are in their proper place.
  • Top Tip #3 – Car seats have to be installed properly in order to do their job. Since it’s estimated that about 73 percent of car seats are not used or installed properly, always consult an expert when installing your child’s new seat.  This can be done by finding a car seat installation event in your area.
  • Top Tip #4 – Never purchase a used car seat unless you are sure of the seat’s crash history and expiration date.  This will require you to only purchase used seats from individuals you know.  Never get a seat from a thrift store or from an internet site.  Seats that have been in a crash have to be replaced because their integrity could have been broken during the crash.

As you can see, it’s easy to keep your kids safe by following just a few simple tips. Come by All-Star Dodge Ram near Oakville for car, truck, SUV, or minivan that has all the latest safety features today and keep your family safe on the road!

Tips For Selling Used Dodge Ram Trucks, Part 4

Young Woman Sat In The Drivers Seat of Her CarYou’ve found your buyer!  Congratulations!  Now, you just need to close the deal. Today, the Saint Peters area Dodge Ram sales team at All-Star will walk you through the process of getting your car officially sold to your new buyer.  Let’s get started.

Upon finding a serious buyer, you will need to agree upon a purchasing price. Remember that most buyers are used to haggling a little over the price, so play the game, but keep firm in your desire to get the fair value for your car.  Once the price is agreed upon, you will need to fill out a bill of sale.  This should include names of both the buyer and seller, addresses, phone numbers, the vehicle’s VIN, payment method, and purchase price.  Have both parties sign the document and take it to your bank to be notarized.  Be sure both parties have a clear copy of this document for future reference.

Now you will need to take payment for the vehicle.  This will need to be done via cash or verified cashier’s check.  Before giving the buyer the title be sure to take the cashier’s check you were provided to the issuing bank to confirm it’s validity.

Next and finally, you will need to sign over the car’s title and follow your state’s laws to transfer the car officially at your local DMV.  This part of the process is not negotiable and needs to be done without delay.  Although you will also need to make sure to make the proper changes to your insurance policy to reflect the sale of your vehicle.

The team at All-Star’s Dodge Ram dealership near Saint Peters is excited that you are ready to sell your vehicle and move onto a new model.  Remember, if the process of selling out right isn’t for you, contact our team about a trade-in today!
