Car buying Tips! From a car dealing momma

Hi everyone!

My name is Lauren! These are some car buying tips you may not see everyday. I am the owner's wife, when he says he has to talk to the manager he is calling me lolol

With that being said, the below are my tips! Pretty basic but you would be surprised. This isn't just for buying used cars, this can be for new cars too!

Checking a used car with a lift is very important! Always. Always. ALWAYS test drive the vehicle. We are around cars every day, it may not be bad to us but it could potentially be annoying to you.

Tip Of the Day RESEARCH

Tip Of The Week: Research. Research. Research. Not only should you research the history of the specific vehicle you're checking out (Carfax) you should check out the Make & Model's History.  
Does anyone remember the massive recall in 2014? Chevy recalls the Chevy cobalt (and others) a DECADE after finding ignition-switch defect. They recalled more than 700,000 vehicles due to faulty ignition switches for 2005-2007 Chevy Cobalts.  They stopped making the vehicle in 2010, which doesn't stop the amount circling out there.

Splash of Color

Nothing our dealership can do for you but thought this was neat!
I saw this while searching through pinterest and thought this was a great idea for adding some color to your life!
I actually bought one of these rugs for less than 6 bucks at Walmart + 6-7 scrunchies on amazon for like $1 a piece. #awomenstouch #carinterior #cheapdiy #colorful

GOING GREEN Old Electric Car Batteries Used to Po

What have we heard since kids about being "green"? 
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! 

There is an American based company that found an unusual way to reuse the batteries that we think is pretty cool. You can find the original article below!

This company is called Eaton, they are also an energy storage company! Like I said, they found a way to reuse these batteries.....they call them "second-life batteries".  Eaton has already equipped a stadium in the Netherlands with this system, the John Cruyff Arena, in Amsterdam. They are also in the works for 5-6 European stadiums.

So why is this going green? Along with the stadiums using about 20% of solar electricity already, this eliminates the need for Diesel Generators! ALSO, IT IS ENOUGH TO POWER SEVERAL THOUSANDS HOMES! #CHEERSTOTHEFUTURE
