What to Look for in a Collision Repair Center

Collision Repair Center at All Star Dodge Ram in MO

After you have had a minor fender bender or a major accident, you want to find a collision repair center that will ensure your Dodge Ram vehicle is repaired in the best way possible. The Collision Repair Center at All Star Dodge Ram in MO is the perfect place to get your vehicle back in like new condition. Today we want to share with you some things to look for when finding a repair center.

First, it helps to understand that speed and cost shouldn’t necessarily be your top factors in choosing a collision repair center. While there’s nothing wrong with finding a company that can deliver repairs within a reasonable time frame and at an affordable price, work that seems too fast and cheap to be true probably is. You don’t want to work with a shop that cuts corners in order to boast that they can deliver the fastest or cheapest repairs. (All Star has to meet the requirements set forth by the auto manufacturer, so you know that all of their repairs are done as the manufacturer would have them done.)

“It’s also a good idea to choose a collision repair center that is completely transparent about the work they do. If a company is unwilling to explain why a certain repair is necessary or demonstrate what they plan to do to fix your car, you’re probably better off seeking service from a different shop—one that will communicate with you in an open and informative manner.”-nearsay.com

For more information on the collision repair center at All Star Dodge Ram, call or stop by the dealership. Their technicians will help get your repairs done quickly with the utmost care. Head to All Star today!

Comfortable Ride in the Dodge Journey

Dodge Journey at All Star Dodge Ram near IL

You find yourself needing a vehicle in which you can ride comfortably for long trips. There are a number of great vehicles from which to choose, but we think that you will really like the Dodge Journey at All Star Dodge Ram near IL. We want to talk a little bit about the seating of the Journey.

The Journey comes standard with two rows and seating for five on cloth upholstery. A third row that increases capacity to seven is available as an option or standard in higher trims. Other optional seating features include premium cloth seats, leather-bolstered seats with cloth inserts, full leather seats, a six-way power driver’s seat, heated seats, a leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel, and a heated steering wheel.

There are two complete and one partial LATCH system in the Journey, which are on the outboard and middle seats of the second row, respectively. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rates the system as Marginal, which is the second-worst designation. On all three seats, the top tether anchor is hard to find and could be confused with other hardware. The middle seat borrows one lower anchor from the passenger side seat, and it’s difficult to maneuver around the anchors. “On the second row driver’s side seat, the lower anchors are too deep in the seat cushion. There are optional integrated child booster seats available for the second row that are easier to manipulate than the standard LATCH tethers and anchors.”-cars.usnews.com

For more information on the Dodge Journey and if you want to explore all of the features that the interior has to offer, head to All Star today. Their team would love to get you behind the wheel of a Dodge Journey!

How Does Car Service Work?

Service at All Star Dodge Ram near St. Louis

It would seem that getting your Dodge, Ram, Jeep, or Chrysler serviced at All Star near St. Louis is really easy, and for the customer it is, but there are actually a lot of things happening to make sure that you have a great experience and to ensure that your vehicle gets the servicing it needs. Today we want to take a quick look at the processes that take place to ensure a quality repair.

While every dealership is a little different, most processes are the same. When a customer first pulls into a dealership’s service drive, they are greeted either by a service consultant or a porter who will direct them to an available service consultant.

The service consultant then will ask what the customer needs help with, and write up a repair order describing the work to be performed. Once that’s done, the customer signs the repair order–which often has an estimate of the repair costs on it–and heads to the waiting area or gets a ride home or a loaner vehicle, if the car will be in the shop for a while.

Once the repair order, or R.O., is complete, the service advisor will either hand it to a dispatcher, who will assign the work to a technician, or if the dealership does not use a dispatcher, the advisor will assign the work directly.

Once this is done, the technician brings the car to his or her work bay, and begins working. In most cases, whether performing an oil change or major repair work, the technician will need to order parts for the job. Sometimes these parts come from the dealership’s own parts department. Then the repairs begin.

Did Someone Say, “Charger”?

Dodge Charger at All Star Dodge Ram near Kirkwood

At All Star Dodge Ram near Kirkwood, they are big fans of the Dodge Charger. This classic muscle car was huge in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, but then faded into the backdrop in the late 1970’s. However, in the late 2000’s Dodge decided to revive this model and bring back the classic model styling and adding all of the technologies of the day. Let’s talk a little more about the Charger!

The Dodge Charger rear-wheel-drive sedan is about the closest thing America has to an old-school muscle car, while now being comfortable and user friendly, with modern technology.

For 2015, it was refreshed at every body panel except the roof and rear doors, but its design remains retro as intended. The 2017 Charger upgrades the infotainment system with an improved touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. New wheels and retro hound’s-tooth upholstery are also available on 2017 Dodge Chargers.

Base engine is a responsive 3.6-liter V6 making 292 horsepower, followed by a 5.7-liter V8 making 370 horsepower, a 6.4-liter V8 making 485 hp, and last but clearly not least is the horsepower king, the SRT Hellcat, a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 making 707 humongous horsepower.It will go 204 miles per hour.It’s surprisingly composed for a beast.

Charger V6 models use an 8-speed automatic, and have available all-wheel drive. Acceleration is quick enough to stay ahead of traffic.

Charger V8 versions, also with an 8-speed automatic, bring enough acceleration to enable relaxed passing at just half throttle.

To test drive the powerful Dodge Charger, head to All Star. Their team would love to show you all of the performance characteristics of this impressive model. We think that it is time to bring back the days of the muscle car – with the help of the Dodge Charger!

New Rebel Color!

Ram 1500 at All Star Dodge Ram in Missouri

We love the Ram 1500 at All Star Dodge Ram in Missouri. It is powerful, it is comfortable to ride in, and it is a great utility vehicle. Though the Ram 1500 has remained true to its original roots, it has gained the latest technologies over the years. Whenever something new come out on the Ram 1500, we get excited! That is why when changes were announced a few days ago, we had to let you know all that we know about them!

“Ram Truck announced a bold new color for the Ram 1500 Rebel pickup and optional monochromatic trim accents for 1500-3500 Limited models. Regarding the former new option for the Rebel, and based on the name, we’re thinking of a nice, juicy steak.”-fleetowner.com

Now available for order and expected to arrive at dealerships starting in May, Rebel 1500 buyers will now be able to pick Delmonico Red for their truck. It’s the seventh choice available on the palette along with Bright Silver Metallic, Bright White, Brilliant Black, Flame Red, Granite Crystal Metallic and Mojave Sand.

Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 Limited models can also be ordered with body-colored “RAM” letters across the tailgate as an alternative to the standard bright chrome letters. Limited trucks can also be ordered with body-colored, cab-length running boards “to enhance the monochromatic appearance when paired with the body-colored tailgate lettering,” according to Ram Truck.

While this new color is not yet on display at All Star Dodge Ram, it soon will be, and in the mean time, you can order your new Ram 1500 with the new Delmonico Red color. We are sure that this color is going to be a show stopper!

Extreme Ram Test Drives

New Ram Trucks at All Star Dodge Ram near St. Peters

One of the best ways to decide whether or not you like a vehicle is to take a test drive. Of course you can take a test drive at All Star Dodge Ram near St. Peters. Their friendly team is knowledgeable and is sure to help you see all of the great attributes that the different Dodge Ram vehicles have to offer. However, what if you really want to push a Ram to the limit, you might want to take a test drive on The Mojave Road. We want to share with you just what you can expect from this more intense test drive.

One could argue that a Ram Power Wagon is more able than necessary for the Mojave Road, and as long as everything’s going your way it is. However, with questionable weather, that dry lake that sometimes isn’t, a long-wheelbase two-wheel drive and a highway-tire four-wheel-drive truck in the convoy, and solo exploring on the agenda, extra capability is always welcome. And then there’s the fatigue-fighting factors of relaxed body motions on the trail and a quiet highway ride because from almost anywhere the Mojave Road is a highway ride away.

“The Power Wagon’s extra compression suspension travel, well calibrated Bilsteins, and flexible sidewalls (it’s the only three-quarter-ton truck on Load Range D tires) make it surprisingly good for a 7,400-pound truck that also manages highways well.”-autoblog.com

What makes the Mojave Road a great place to test drive the Ram is that on this one road, you encounter nearly every road type and condition, along with every weather condition. There are few places better than this road to get a comprehensive glimpse at Ram performance.
