Should I See My Dealer for Servicing?

Collision Repair Center at All Star Dodge Ram near Town and Country

This is a question we hear about all of the time. Should I take my car back to the dealership or will the neighborhood guy do the same thing for less? While it is sometimes true that the local guy will perhaps be slightly cheaper, on the bid at least, you do not always know what kind of service you are getting and if they really know what they are doing. A dealership service center has factory trained and certified technicians that know exactly how to properly and efficiently repair any of their manufacturers vehicles. This means that the job will be done correctly the first time and that the proper part will be used. (Don’t get us started on how important the factory made replacement parts are!)

Another important thing to remember is your warranty. When you buy a car from All Star Dodge Ram near Town and Country, a lot of the time, you will have a warranty to cover the costs of some repairs that need to be done. Usually this warranty requires that the dealership do the servicing to keep the warranty in force. This is because the manufacturer trusts their dealerships with the technicians that they trained, to do the job correctly and without causing problems in other areas because of a lack of understanding on how that particular vehicle runs.

Basically it comes down to this, if you want any of your Dodge, Ram, Jeep, and Chrysler cars serviced properly and repaired in a timely fashion, you need to take it to All Star! Their team of factory trained technicians will get your vehicle back into top notch running condition. Head to All Star today and look at their collision repair and servicing center!

Dealer Service is the Best Service

All Star Service Center at All Star Dodge Ram near Kirkwood

What if we told you there was a way to avoid the hassle and know that you are getting the best service? There is! All you have to do is bring your vehicle to the Service Center at All Star Dodge Ram near Kirkwood!

The All Star technicians are the very best! The technicians at the dealer level are specialists; they are manufacturer-trained and typically work only on your make of vehicle. Most dealers have an ongoing training program for the service staff, which includes not only the service technicians but also the service manager, advisers and support staff. The manufacturers offer these training programs only to their network of dealers. The dealers typically pay for these programs to keep up with the latest vehicle enhancements and repair techniques.

If you have a warranty, you are also going to get the most out of your warranty if you take your vehicle to the service center at All Star. “A dealer will perform repairs for free if your car is still under warranty. Dealers are paid by the manufacturers to perform this service and require the service technician to verify the problem, so you might find that dealers are hesitant to perform warranty work for problems they have difficulty substantiating. Even if you have to pay for repairs outside the warranty period, dealers can back up their repairs with a warranty that is good nationwide.’-edmunds.com

Are Manufacturer Parts Important?

Manufacturer Parts at All Star Dodge near Arnold

We get asked this question all of the time, “Are manufacturer parts important?” The short answer is that yes, buying manufacturer parts are important. These are the parts that were designed specifically for your Dodge, Ram, Jeep, and Chrysler vehicles. They will keep your cars, trucks, and SUVs running as they should. Today we want to share with you what some of the other kinds of auto parts are out there, and why you should NOT get those other parts. You can get all of your genuine auto parts at All Star Dodge near Arnold.

Rebuilt or Remanufactured – A rebuilt or remanufactured part is essentially a used component that was completely taken apart and fitted with new parts. It is then tested to ensure it performs as well as a new part.

Aftermarket – Aftermarket parts are made by a company other than the original manufacturer.  These parts are made to fit and perform as well as, but in many cases, not as well as the original.

Refurbished or Reconditioned – Refurbished or reconditioned parts are used parts that have been cleaned and maybe a few external components replaced like nuts and bolts or gaskets. These are very inexpensive compared to new parts, for a reason.  However, they are used parts and do have some level of wear.

Used or Recycled – Recycled is just the new term for a used part. A used part is an alternative when your car is older or has very high miles. They are also very good choices for parts that don’t wear such as door handles, trim, glass, moldings or body parts. Used parts are the least expensive you can buy but they do have some level of wear already and will not last as long as a new or rebuilt part. Sometimes these parts are the only option if you are restoring a classic Dodge, Ram, Chrysler, or Jeep model.

What’s New on the 2017 Chrysler 300

Chrysler 300 at All Star Chrysler near Ladue

The Chrysler 300 at All Star Chrysler near Ladue is a top sedan in its class. For the 2017 model year there was a few changes that we think are really spectacular – let’s take a look at look at the changes.

“Some of the highlights that might be the defining moment for the 300 sedan include an available all-wheel-drive, lots of standard features, satisfying technology and audio systems, upscale cabin, an exceptional quiet and supple ride, and a strong V8 power.”-newcarsreleasedates.com

Some of the novelties include unique commemorative touches, an upgraded suspension system, a few enhancements including but not limited to Siri Eyes Free, and tons of safety features available on a single package dubbed SafetyTec Plus.

Its combination of attitude and luxury helps overshadow the many large sedans already in the market. Indeed, we can reminisce its debut ten years ago and how it received the attention of its uniqueness and sophistication. Also for 2017, the 300 stays true to its roots but is now a bit subtle and refined.

Others might argue that some of its appeal comes from the available RWD platform and its V6 and V8 power offerings. But still, there is something vaguely imposing about this widely celebrated all-American sedan.

The full-size sedan comes in a walloping four trims: base 300 Limited, mid-trims 300S and 300C, and the top-of-the-line 2017 Chrysler 300 300C Platinum.

Standard features and equipment available on the base 2017 Chrysler 300 Limited include Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity, an 8.4” touchscreen interface, automatic climate control, a USB port, voice controls, satellite radio, Siri Eyes Free, premium sound system, heated 8-way power front seats, keyless ignition and entry, a 60/40-splt folding rear setbacks, Wi-Fi hotspot, cruise control, daytime running lights, 17” alloy wheels, heated mirrors, optional 19” wheels, and leather upholstery.

Inside the Chrysler 200

Chrysler 200 at All Star Chrysler in Bridgeton

Though the Chrysler 200 is no longer in production, you can still get one of your own at All Star Chrysler in Bridgeton.  Chrysler decided to discontinue this fun model for uncertain reasons, but we have a lot of reasons why we think that you will love the 200! Let’s take a look at the interior!

The Chrysler 200 seats five people. In any trim level, the best seats in the house are in the front, where there’s a decent amount of passenger room and comfortable cushions. (Some say that the 200’s sleek appearance cuts into seating space in the back seat, but we think that is subjective.)

If you want the look and feel of an upscale sedan but are working with a more modest budget, the Chrysler 200’s cabin will likely appeal to you. Standouts of its classy design include plenty of soft-touch materials, a sleek infotainment center (standard in all 200 models above the base LX), and a rotary knob to change gears.

“The Chrysler 200 doesn’t come up short for cargo space. Its 16-cubic-foot trunk is one of the largest in the class, besting those found in sedans like the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. The 200 gives you enough space to haul several golf bags (each about 4 cubic feet) or luggage for a family trip (the average carry-on suitcase takes up about 1.4 cubic feet). When you want to haul over-sized items, you can fold down the 60/40 split rear seats (though the seats don’t lay completely flat).”-cars.usnews.com

Head to All Star today at take a look at the Chrysler 200. We are sure that the interior that the Chrysler 200 has to offer will surprise and impress you! Test drive the 200 and you are sure to want to get behind the wheel today!

Perfection Over the Years

Dodge Grand Caravan at All Star Dodge near St. Louis

It is said that wine gets better with age, it could be argued that the Dodge Grand Caravan at All Star Dodge near St. Louis has gotten better with age as well. There have been five generations of the Dodge Grand Caravan, and we think that this latest generation has bben the best yet! Let’s take a look at the latest generation!
he fifth generation van had debuted at the 2007 North American International Auto Show with exterior styling by Ralph Gilles. Beginning with Generation V in model year 2008, Chrysler only made the long wheelbase Grand Caravan. With discontinuation of the short-wheelbase Caravan, Dodge offered the Journey on nearly an identical wheelbase and as a crossover rather than a minivan. Although the SWB model, which had accounted for half of all sales in Canada, cost approximately $2,000 less and offered a four-cylinder engine option with improved fuel economy, Chrysler executives stated the SWB Caravan was discontinued to accommodate new features offered in the Grand Caravan, consistent with the demands of the majority of the minivan market.

“A new six-speed automatic transmission became standard with the 3.8 L V6 and the new 4.0 L V6. The four-speed automatic transmission is standard with the 3.3 L Flex-Fuel V6. This generation of Grand Caravan and its Town & Country counterpart were not available with an all-wheel-drive system. The previously unavailable Electronic Stability Control was made standard on this generation.”-dodge.com

For more information on the Dodge Grand Caravan, please head to All Star Dodge. Their knowledgeable and friendly staff would love to get you behind the wheel of this wonderful minivan today. You deserve to drive the best generation of the Dodge Grand Caravan – you deserve a great new car! Get to All Star today!

Chrysler in the New Millennium

New Chrysler Cars at All Star Chrysler near Wentzville

All month long, we have been bringing you the history of Chrysler as well as the history of some of their top vehicles. Today we want to take a look at the changes that Chrysler saw in the new millennium.

2000: The new millennium ushered in a decade of innovation and design accomplishments for Chrysler, most notably the launch of the iconic Chrysler 300C-the latest generation in a long pedigree of champion 300s built for excitement since 1955. When it was launched in 2005, the stunning 300C turned the eyes of the automotive world back to Detroit. And shone a new spotlight on great American design.

But the Chrysler 300C wasn’t the only shining example of Chrysler design innovation this decade-the introduction of the PT Cruiser fused modern amenities with a retro sensibility romanticizing an era of hot rod Model A wagons. And the decade was one of remarkable reinvention of the minivan. By the people who invented it. With the family flagship Town & Country receiving a host of technology and safety innovations to maintain its status as the minivan benchmark into the new millennium and beyond.

“Chrysler was founded on the philosophy of design with purpose. To build revolutionary new cars – affordable luxury vehicles known for their innovative, forward-thinking engineering. And it is their purpose today and for tomorrow. Their alliance with Fiat Group now gives us the competitive advantage of access to new technologies and advanced engineering solutions that further their mission.”-chrysler.com

Real Renegade Review!

Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer near Chesterfield

We can tell you just how wonderful the Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer near Chesterfield is until we are blue in the face, but maybe you want the opinion of someone who has bought the Renegade and drives it on a daily basis. It just so happens that we know someone who bought the 2017 Jeep Renegade earlier this year and got them to share with us their feelings on their vehicle purchase.

This is my first Jeep purchase. I had liked the design of the Renegade since it was introduced and had been waiting for my old car to die before looking into them. I ended up liking the Trailhawk trim better than the others and opted for that one given it’s more off-road-ability (her word) and extra ground clearance. It actually is really fun to use in manual mode and responds perfectly to your needs. After a month of usage in the winter I am getting descent fuel economy. Right now averaging around 23 mpg. On a longer road trip I was getting 27. It seems to be getting better as I break it in and the weather gets warmer. The inside is very well laid out.  The driver display is awesome and can be customized to show what you want from radio stations to the digital speedometer or trip computer. I have the bigger Uconnect display and navigation package which are great additions. Bluetooth functionality is great and can stream your music without issue. You can also hook up anything via USB cable and it will pick up those devices to play music from. For one of the smaller compact SUVs in this segment Jeep makes it feel very spacious in the inside. -Marsha
