Most people are not out buying cars because their bank account is overflowing (but if you have that problem, let me know!) We buy cars because we need them to get to work, to school, and to cart our kids around from practice to games, and those field trips to the zoo. A car is one of the most expensive purchases you will make. Getting the right car for your wants and needs takes time and effort.
When visiting a car dealer, you might hear the salesmen say a lot of things that you don’t totally get. Over the years, car salesmen have developed their own car sales lingo based on their experience with selling cars and interacting with customers. Not all phrases are things that pertain to customers. A car that has had problems from the moment the first key hit the ignition is called a “lemon”, or a “Friday Afternoon” car, but that is something more commonly said between a salesman and a service person.
Every time you pull up to a gasoline pump you encounter those three big yellow buttons with those mysterious numbers labeled regular, mid-grade, or premium.
Which us the right fuel for your vehicle? Is it based on cost? Should it be? I mean if I can afford premium fuel and I love my car then she should get premium fuel right?

No matter whether you are getting ready for a date, taking your friend out to lunch, or it is just your week for carpool, having a clean car is essential. Believe it or not, the condition of your car can even affect what your boss thinks of you! It is worth taking a few extra minutes out of your Saturday morning to do a little deep clean car detailing. Depending on how long it has been since the last deep cleaning, it may seem like a daunting task, but here are a few tips and tricks to using some nonconventional cleaning products when detailing a car.
Our vehicles are constantly exposed to the elements. The detrimental effects may vary, but probably the number one result from exposure is RUST.
Preventing rust is practically impossible. Even vehicles with aluminum or fiberglass bodies have iron and steel components, and rust likes to eat away at exposed iron and steel.
If you really want everyone to know your personality, a custom car paint job will tell it all. Whether you’re an All American flag waving freedom lover, a Sci-Fi thrill loving junkie, or an old school geek, you can let everyone in traffic know what your passion is. Of course, not all paint jobs are equal. Earl Scheib might be able to paint any car for $100, but they aren’t going to give you this kind of professional customization found on these custom auto paint jobs.

Cars are an extension of our personality. We add little things like bumper stickers to show our attitude or promote causes we believe in, and big things like lift kits or spoke rims to make our cars stand out. Many times, your car is the first impression, as friends, family, and businesses and workplaces see you pull into their drive. Some of these aftermarket car modifications add value to your car, while others may make your car less marketable. While painting and detailing your ride with your favorite sports team’s colors and logos will certainly tell the story about you, it may be harder to sell the vehicle later. Other aftermarket parts increase the value and help you get more moolah at trade-in or sales time. Here are a few changes that owners can make that will help not only make your car more comfortable, but also increase resale value.
