Dodge Ram Used Cars – Perfect for Long Term

Used Cars at All Star Dodge Ram in MIssouri

It is widely known that Dodge has been innovator in the auto industry since the early days, as in the early days of the car itself. It is this long legacy that makes each Dodge Ram model such a great vehicle. They are built to last. This means that when you decided to by a Used Car from All Star Dodge Ram in Missouri, you are getting a vehicle that will last you a long time. We want to share with you a little bit about the Dodge brothers that started this long lasting legacy.

The Dodge Brothers were skilled machinists from a modest background. John Francis Dodge and Horace Elgin Dodge were two of the three children of Daniel Rug and Maria Dodge of Niles, Michigan. They attended public schools, but learned the machinist’s trade from their father, who ran a shop specializing in internal combustion engines for marine use. The inseparable brothers built the first bicycle in Niles.

Horace Dodge invented a four-point, dirt proof, adjustable bicycle ball bearing and in 1897 the two brothers established the Evans & Dodge Bicycle Company with Fred S. Evans and leased the Typograph Company plant for two years. In 1900, they sold their interests, returned to Detroit, and established a machine shop in the Boydell Building on Beaubien Street at Lafayette. They began with only twelve employees, but quickly established a reputation for excellent workmanship. Ransom E. Olds erected the first automobile plant in Detroit in 1899 and by early 1901 the Dodge machine shop supplied him with engines. Olds followed with an order for 3,000 transmissions in 1902, making the Dodge brothers one of the largest parts suppliers for the nascent Detroit automobile industry.(Some of this information was compiled from dodgemotors.com). The Dodge brothers grew their knowledge from a small bike shop to a manufacturing empire.

Don’t Skip Maintenance!

Service at All Star Dodge Ram in Missouri

We love our Dodge, Ram, Jeep, and Chrysler vehicles. They are fun to drive, they are comfortable to ride in, and they are just all-around great quality vehicles. But what happens if you don’t take car of your Dodge Ram vehicles, will they be ok? Is skipping maintenance a big deal? Let’s explore this today.

The long and short of it, is that you cannot skip auto maintenance. But there are some very big reasons why. Technology in cars like electronic fuel injection and electronic control units certainly have simplified servicing and “tuning” a car if the right computer equipment is used but they have also made the process more involved for the mechanic (technician) who must be trained to a higher level.

There is much more to servicing a modern car than simply giving it a “grease and oil change.” The old $35 dollar grease and oil might have passed muster a decade ago but is in most cases insufficient attention for a new car with its many sophisticated systems.

“Car servicing can involve up to 50 or more component and system checks and adjustments. And despite complaints about the cost from some car owners, it’s worth the money. Maintaining the engine in peak economy, performance and emissions condition requires electronic monitoring and fine adjustment according to the diagnostic computer read out.”-carsguide.com

A correctly serviced and tuned engine will have a longer, more economical service life than one that is run into the ground with minimal or inappropriate attention. It can also pre-warn or potentially major problems with the engine and transmission.

The best offense is always a good defense. To get your Dodge Ram vehicles properly cared for, head to All Star in Missouri. Their service department is ready to serve you!

A Rebellion Coming!

Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer in Missouri

We have been long time fans of the Jeep Renegade. It just screams out for adventure and thirsts for more something more. FCA has heard our cries and is introducing some new trims for the Jeep Renegade, at All Star Jeep Deal in Missouri, that will make it more rebellious than we thought possible. Let’s learn more about these trims today!

The 2017 Renegade Deserthawk and Altitude are both set to bow this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show. One is meant for taking on the toughest desert terrain while the other is dressy enough to pull up at an opera house.

Deserthawk may blend right into its environment if buyers order it in the new, exclusive Mojave Sand tan. It also comes in white, black and a gray called Anvil. The Deserthawk rocks 17-inch black wheels, hood and rear-body-panel decals, rock rails, skid plates, and signature red front and rear tow hooks. Inside are black leather seats with contrast stitching and accents, all-weather floor mats, a cargo tray mat, a backup camera and a 7-inch multimedia display.

All that’s in addition to the Deserthawk’s all-terrain capabilities, which mirror those of the “regular” Trailhawk edition. The desert-ready, all-wheel-drive performance comes courtesy 8.7 inches of ground clearance, hill descent control, up to 19 inches of water fording and a standard 180-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.

In contrast is the Altitude, which is aimed more at making an impression on the street than the mud. “It elevates the offerings of the Latitude model, starting with an aggressive, all-black color scheme. All regular Latitude paint jobs are available, but the 18-inch wheels are blacked out and gloss-black accents adorn the exterior, including the front and rear badges, grille rings and taillight rings.”-usatoday.com

How to Get the Best Deal on a Grand Caravan

SAN JOSECA/USA - MAY 24 2014: Chrysler Dodge Jeep and Ram automobile dealership sign. All are part of the Chrysler Motor Company an American automobile manufacturer.

Dodge Grand Caravan at All Star Dodge in Missouri

When you are shopping for a new Dodge Grand Caravan at All Star Dodge in Missouri, you are probably out to get the best deal that you can possibly get. Today we want to make a couple of suggestions as to what to do to help yourself get the best price on your Grand Caravan or to at least take some money off of the price.

Trading in your current vehicle is a great way to knock some money off the price of your Grand Caravan. Trade in appraisals usually take time, so if you have called to make an appointment with a salesperson, let them know that you have a trade in and that you would like it appraised as soon as possible. “Getting a trade-in appraised can take time. Moving that process up earlier in the deal-making can speed things along. It also lets the salesperson know that it’s very important to you to get a good trade-in value. If it turns out you and the dealership are thousands of dollars apart on the trade-in value, the earlier you know that, the better,” (edmonds.com). If a high trade in value is important to the sale, and you have laid out that if the price is right you will be purchasing your Grand Caravan now, they might be able to give you a little more money for your trade in than what they would usually do.

Going along with what we have said so far, let the salesperson know that if they make you a great deal that you would be ready to buy right away. A definate purchaser is something that salespeople really love to see, and might be willing to really cut the price to make the sale.

Just purchased a Renegade Limited 4×4,Light grey leather interior with red trim, power seat, dual climate control, tow package , MySky sunroof. This is cool little Jeep that is ahead of it`s time, this is our second Jeep and the little details are really cool. Every time I get in our new Limited we find something new in the details. Drove her home about 100 miles after picking her up and used a quarter tank and averaged 30MPG, but still breaking in. Ride was very quite and comfortable. The steering is tight, but very nimble. The MySky sunroof is really cool as well, power sunroof, but you can remove the panels as well to open up the whole top, really ahead of its time. Remember this is Fiat , so it is Italian made. So far there is really nothing that has me really disappointed , very happy with it so far. – Thew
