All Star Automotive Group Winter Driving Tips!

Stay Safe This Winter – All Star Automotive Group

It’s time to ensure that both you and your vehicle are ready for the winter! Driving can be a little tricky during the colder months of the year and your vehicle needs to be prepared. Winter Air temperatures here in Louisiana typically range 40- to 50-degrees Fahrenheit colder than typical summer temperatures, which means tire pressures naturally change. Tire pressure should be checked weekly because of the temperature drop. Low tire pressures wastes fuel and more importantly, causes the tire to run hotter from the extra friction. Your vehicle’s tires should have between 3-5 psi higher than normal pressure for winter driving. Pressure increase helps offset reduced hot tires.

All tire pressures are meant to be measured in a cold state. This means the tires are at the same temperature as the outside air. If you park your vehicle outside or in an unheated area such as a detached garage, it is best to measure tire pressures first thing in the morning. Cold mornings are a hassle already, but this is when tire pressures are ideal. If you were to measure your tire pressure at any other time, you are recording useless data because the tires are not completely cold.

Check your vehicles manual for dashboard lights and meanings. If you are unable to check your tire pressure yourself, it is possible that your vehicle will let you know of low tire pressures on its own. Look for a warning light that looks like an exclamation point with parenthesis around it. This light will automatically turn on if your tire pressure is low. Take this caution light seriously and cater to your tires.

Also, be sure to fuel your vehicle fully in case your tires go out while driving and you are forced to stop. Pull over to a safe location with your hazard lights on for everyone to see. Staying noticed and letting drivers be aware of your location is essential for your safety. A full tank of gas will allow you stay warm while you wait for help.

All Star Automotive Group knows how much Dads shuttle kids to and from school, haul equipment for t-ball games and occasionally complete a few projects off the Honey-Do List on the weekends. So we have compiled a list of a few gifts for Dad’s vehicle for Father’s Day!ASAG - Car Cleaning Kit

A Garmin navigation device, other than your phone, is the perfect gift to give the busy Dad. Between family vacations and t-ball and soccer tournaments, Dad is bound to need directions. This Garmin DriveSmart 50LMT has a bright 5.0-inch display screen with dual-orientation and pinch-to-zoom display. It is also equipped with Bluetooth for hands-free calling and voice-activated navigation so Dad never has to take his hands off the wheel!

Air Pump

Keeping your tires properly inflated is critical for a safe, smooth ride. Instead of relying on the air pumps at gas stations, and the quarters they demand, why not keep your own pump close by?

What Kind of Customer Service Should I Expect From a Car Dealership?

Customer Service 

You should expect to be treated with the same respect at a car dealership that you expect when you dine at your favorite restaurant.  Everyone has a need to feel appreciated.  Whether taking your car in for service or purchasing a new vehicle you should be treated with dignity and respect.   Everyone in the dealership should make you feel at home and someone should greet you, rather than you having to find a service adviser or sales person.  You should feel that the organization went the “extra mile” for you and if any problems arise they should be able to help resolve them in a timely manner.  Everyone who comes in contact with you should smile and be friendly and if you have questions that cannot be answered by one person, they should be able to direct you to someone who can.  Remember that they are still human and will make mistakes, but it is the willingness to help that is customer service.   It is not the product but the attitude of the employees or the way in which they may have been treated (otherwise known as the experience) that people tend to remember.
