Nothing says fall better than heading out to a pumpkin patch with the family! There you can carefully choose the perfect pumpkin for carving, and of course, eating! Pumpkins are the centerpiece for the fall season. So, if you are in a Jack o lantern mood, break away from everyday life and enjoy some family time around your jack o lantern friends!

If you are looking for something less traditional, how about taking a scenic drive to northern Louisiana to see the foliage. Northern Louisiana has some great open fields and hills for just clearing your head. A scenic drive as this will be calming, and will get you into the fall spirit.

These are just a few ideas to kick off a great fall season. The epitome of fall lies within the weather and your nostalgic memories.

Learn to Love Leasing with All Star Automotive Group

Why Lease A Vehicle? – All Star Automotive Group

Purchasing a brand new vehicle can be fun and exciting! Something about that new car smell makes us feel happy and overly joyed! But we understand that purchasing a new vehicle is not always the cheapest option and monthly payments can be high. So have you ever considered leasing instead?

bigstock-leasing-47250574

Leasing a vehicle is a great option for people who want an affordable monthly payment and a reliable new vehicle. The benefits are simple! You get a new car more often, 2 to 3 years depending on your lease agreement, you are covered by the manufacturer’s warranty and there is no negative equity!

So how does leasing work exactly? You are paying money down from a vehicle’s MSRP to its residual value. The residual value is a value set by the manufacturer an is mandated by the Federal Government. This is a number that can not be changed.

When your lease is over, there are four options you have:

  • Option 1: Purchase the Vehicle
    • For example, your MSRP is $40,000 and the residual value is $19,000. You would purchase the vehicle for the residual value at $19,000.
  • Option 2: Trading the Vehicle in
    • For example, the trade in value is at $26,000 that means you have $7,000 in the equity you have accured. Then with the equity you have accured, you can put that towards your next vehicle or put the money in your pocket and walk away.
  • Option 3: Selling the Vehicle
    • That is an option also, but that can vary depending on the state you live in. Some dealers require you to purchase the vehicle first, then sell it outright.
  • Option 4: Walk Away
    • Keep in mind, when you are walking away, you are walking away from the equity you have built over the course of 2 to 3 years. At the beginning of your lease, you signed an agreement stating how much mileage you could use in your lease period. If you have gone over on your mileage, you will have to pay anywhere from $0.08-$0.15 per mile.

Purchasing or leasing a vehicle is a big decision, so you should consider these 4 questions when you are truing to make this decision.

  1. How many miles do you drive a year?
  2. How long do you want to finance your vehicle?
  3. How often do you want to drive a new vehicle?
  4. What are the 3 most important things to you when financing a vehicle?

The great thing with leasing is that there are so many options to choose from such as the amount of mileage per year, how long you want to lease and the packages you want included. Leasing has so many great benefits that it is clear to see why more people are wanting to lease over purchasing.

Fall is in full swing and that means cooler weather and more time outside! We know how stir crazy the kiddos can get after being at school all day!

We have complied a list of some of our favorite Fall Family Events to do in the Baton Rouge and surrounding areas! These activities are all kid friendly, inexpensive (some even being free!), and fun activities that are sure to bring the family together this fall season!

This event is in its 18th season! Live After Five is a great event to bring the family to after a long week of work and school. Just bring a blanket, a few chairs and your favorite dancing shoes! This event is free so it is perfect for those families on a budget or college students needing to take a break from the books!

My Review of All Star Ford Lincoln:

I would like to say that our experience at All Star Ford Lincoln was nothing less than exceptional. My wife and I weren’t intending to buy another vehicle, but this flood thought otherwise. We had the approval to go take a look at vehicles and we considered a few places before Ford Lincoln. I am very happy we made our purchase with you guys. We were treated like family and were taken care of by Vinny!! Vinny did an excellent job with assisting us on looking at pre-owned before we went to look at the new models. He was truthful and assisted very much to make the numbers work within our budget. My wife fell in love with her new Ford Edge and it’s an excellent vehicle. The finance manager Marcy was very nice and made the remainder of paperwork a breeze. We thank y’all for an easy process with all that we have been thru so far, in which we aren’t the only ones in this. We appreciate the help and we will be back in the future an upgrade on a truck later down the line. Please give Vinny a nice bonus on his end!!!

Have a Game Plan for Fall Service

car-maintenance-the-bare-minimum.jpg

With fall quickly approaching, it is important to have your vehicle ready for the chilly temperatures ahead. Although it does not snow or get too terribly cold here in South Louisiana, you still need to have your car service and ready for the fall weather that will soon be upon us! All Star Automotive has compiled a few tips and recommendations in order to get your vehicle in tip-top shape before the season changes!

  • Check your battery

Keeping your battery connections clean, tight and corrosion-free are highly important! The summer months were tough on your car battery, but the cold weather can be every tougher if you don’t properly take care of your vehicle’s battery. In addition, if your vehicle’s battery is older than three-years-old, we recommend you look at replacing it sometime soon. Batteries don’t give a warning on when they start failing, so it is always better to be safe than sorry!

  • Heater, Defrosters and Wiper Blades

Make sure to check that the heating, ventilating and air conditioning system are working properly. Heating and cooling performance is vital for those cold mornings and hot afternoons and for safety reasons! The last thing you want is to be late to school or work because you’re defroster was not working! In addition, checking your wiper blades is just as important. In Louisiana, we tend to have lots of afternoon showers. This leads to worn out wiper blades and streaky windshields.

  • Tires

Checking your tires, tire pressure and treat depth before seasons change is very important. Uneven wear can indicate a need for wheel alignment. During the colder months, tire pressure should be checked weekly because tires lose pressure when the temperatures drop.

These are just a few things All Star Automotive suggests you check before the fall season rolls around! Taking care of your vehicle and routinely getting it serviced will ensure your vehicle will last a lot longer!
