Top Features To Get In A Family Car

If you’re in the market for a new family car, there are several features that are absolute must haves that will make your life so much easier.

First off if you’re in the market for a minivan rather than an SUV or sedan we highly recommend opting for power-sliding doors, especially the ones that open and close at the push of a button. These are great for when your hands are full carrying your kids and when your kids are still small to open and close the heavy doors themselves. One of the best features of power-sliding doors is that they will stop if they detect something like fingers so they’ll be no more tears over smashed fingers.

Importance Of An Oil Change

There are a ton of reasons why this is important but let us deal with the major ones so you can go about your day quicker, especially if that involves some test-driving! Oil in a car's system is a lot like the blood in a human body in that it cleans by carrying out particles and pollutants that shouldn't be in there. These pollutants prevent the engine from running its smoothest and will not only reduce gas mileage but , as emphasized by our tech consultant at Cerritos Dodge (Cerritos, CA), also lowers the life of the vehicle. Or look at it like this: imagine jogging in place in normal running gear. That is like a car with the right engine oil levels and cleanliness. Now picture doing the same jog in a sleeping bag wearing a wool hat. That is the engine enduring too much heat-creating friction as you bop mercilessly down to the corner store with low or bad oil! Pushed too far, you will be stopped on the side of the road, wishing you had addressed the inexpensive maintenance of an oil change, not the wallet-busting embarrassment of an engine that has literally welded parts of itself together (seizing)! Let's go over some more reasons and best-practices, in case that was not clear enough!

Audi Announces Concept For Urban Mobility

At the Auto Shanghai 2019 convention, guests saw a sneak peek at the future with the Audi AI:ME. The Audi AI:ME has the ability to drive autonomously at Level Four. Our tech consultant at Audi Wilmington, DE explained that Level Four allows fully autonomous driving so a human driver can still request control. Since the AI:ME can be fully autonomous, Audi designers focused on the interior of the AI:ME. The concept for the interior of the car is to give occupants “an oasis from the city as they travel from one point to the next.” Audi designers thought of everything with seats modeled after armchairs and real climbing plants across the see-through roof of the interior. Yes, you read that correctly, there are real-life plants in the AI:ME. Beyond bringing nature into concrete cities the plants serve an important purpose, to turn the polluted air quality of the city into fresh, clean air.
