New Car Inventory Specials at All Star Dodge near Creve Coeur

Did you know that the end of the year is a great time to get a great price on a new car at All Star Dodge near Creve Coeur? It’s true! This time of year is when dealers are clearing out the current year’s models to make room for the next year’s models. One expecially great place to look is at the new car inventory specials that All Star is offering. This vast selection of vehicles has so many different models to offer that you are sure to find the right car, truck, or SUV to suit your wants and needs. What you will notice about all of the new car inventory specials is that they are all incredibly safe. Since the winter season is nearly upon us, we want to share with you a myth about icy, snowy roads.

Myth: Everyone should buy winter tires – that would prevent most icy road accidents.

Truth: While winter tires certainly do improve traction and handling to some degree during icy conditions, they do not allow a vehicle to safely travel at normal highway speeds when roads are icy. Most fatal accidents happen at high speeds, a condition that is beyond the limits of winter tires to completely prevent a loss of control.

“The regions with some of the highest icy road injury and death incidence are places that see only a handful of winter precipitation events each season – in some cases, only 2 or 3 days per year (such as the southern states in the US). Furthermore, on dry pavement, winter tires wear quickly and have worse handling characteristics. So, in locations where icy roads are seen only a few days a year, it isn’t practical or economical for all drivers in these regions to buy winter tires.”-icyroadsafety.com

Be the Renegade

Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer near Ladue

There are certain vehicles that cause you to to identify with their name. One such SUV is the Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer near Ladue. If you decide to own a Jeep Renegade, it is likely that the word renegade would also describe you and your personality. We think that this is great! We love when people personally identify with the car, truck, or SUV that they own and operate – with one exception. Icy and snowy road conditions. It is in these rough road conditions that you should not be a renegade, but rather someone who is cautious and does not take risks. Today we want to share with you some of the myths of icy roads.

Myth: The worst icy road dangers are during big winter storms.

Truth: The road ice hazard isn’t the minor fender-benders or slide-offs common during snowstorms. The real danger is the serious, highway-speed crashes during light icing events that take drivers by surprise.

When a major snowstorm hits, communities are typically highly aware and prepared for the event prior to its impacts. Schools and workplaces close. Highways officials close many of the high-speed roads, including the interstates, that are the usual spots for fatal icy road accidents. “When the storm is in progress, the sheer amount of snow prevents vehicles from easily reaching the speeds that are often associated with fatal accidents. Most accidents in snowstorms happen at the onset of the storm or on its fringes, where accumulations are lower.”-icyroadsafety.com

Snow accounts for the most icy road fatalities during the winter, but it is the minor events – from a dusting to a couple of inches of accumulation – that cause the most serious snow-related accident outbreaks.

When it comes to repairing a car, that is the easiest part, all you have to do is take your vehicle to the collision repair center All Star Dodge Ram near IL.

1. STOP. Never drive away from the scene of an accident, even a minor one.

2. PROTECT THE SCENE. You can prevent further accidents by setting up flares, or keeping your flashers on. If it is dark and your lights don’t work, you should have a flashlight to keep you safe while you wait in your disabled car or by the side of the road.

3. CALL THE POLICE. Even if there are no serious injuries, it is a good idea to call the police. You may need a police report to file a claim with your insurance company, even if it is just to make a claim for damage to your vehicle. The vehicles involved in the accident should remain where they are, unless they interfere with traffic.

This is just what you should do after the accident first occurs, now remember, if you are in a severe accident that has you injured, stay where you are until help arrives.

At least you know that with the help of the All Star collision repair center, getting your car repaired will be the least of your worries. Head to All Star today!

Should You Check the Accident Report?

Used Car Specials at All Star Dodge Ram near Fenton

When you go to buy a used car at All Star Dodge Ram near Fenton and you are looking through the inventory specials, you might have some questions about some of your favorite models on the lot. One question that we hear on a regular basis is whether or not you should look at the accident history report. This is up to you, of course! However, if you decide you might want to look at it, we wanted to let you know what you would be seeing, where these reports come from, and what they mean.

How do you get it? Using the vehicle identification number (VIN), you can get a detailed report of the car’s history from Carfax or AutoCheck. It’s a quick way to know if you should seriously consider buying this car.

What am I going to find out? Here is some of the important information you’ll learn:

    • Does this car have a clean title? If a car’s been in a serious accident, fire or flood, and was “totaled” by the insurance company (declared a total loss) it still might be driveable. However, the insurance company will issue a “salvage title” to alert future buyers. Steer clear of cars with a salvage title because it kills the resale value, and the car might still have hidden problems.
    • Serious accidents are reported to the insurance company and will probably be on the vehicle history report.
    • It’s nice to think the car you’re interested in was driven to church by a little old lady for its entire life. If you order the report, you’ll know for sure each time it changed hands.
    • Some reports show if required maintenance was done on time and where the work was performed.

We hope that you found this information to be helpful, now head to All Star and check out their selection of used car inventory specials!

What to Do After an Auto Accident

Collision Repair Center at All Star Dodge Ram in Missouri

While we would rather that they never happen, auto accidents are a reality in the world that we live in. Do you know what you should do in the event that you are in an accident? Today we want to share with you a few steps that you should take in the event that you are in a collision.

1. Never drive away from the scene of an accident, even a minor one. Stop and handle the situation.

2. You can prevent further accidents by setting up flares, or keeping your flashers on. If it is dark and your lights don’t work, you should have a flashlight to keep you safe while you wait in your disabled car or by the side of the road.

3. Even if there are no serious injuries, it is a good idea to call the police. You may need a police report to file a claim with your insurance company, even if it is just to make a claim for damage to your vehicle. The vehicles involved in the accident should remain where they are, unless they interfere with traffic.

4. Make sure that you have a accurate record of what happened. The police will be able to help sort everything out and provide a report on the accident.

5. Seek medical attention, even if you think that you are not injured. After a collision, adrenaline is pumping through your body, making it difficult to sense pain. Let the paramedics give you a good once over to make sure you are not injured.

6. Take pictures and exchange contact information.

Once you have things wrapped up and are ready to go to the repairs process, bring your vehicle to the collision repair center at All Star Dodge Ram in Missouri. They have all of the tools, parts, and knowledge to get your car back to its pre-collision glory!

There were so many bad accidents last week and it seemed like there was just no good way to avoid them.
