Tips to Never Lose Your Keys Again

Unless you’ve had to replace them, you wouldn’t know that losing modern day keys to your vehicle is expensive and time consuming. The professional tech service centers at Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep, your #1 Lakewood car dealers in Lakewood, NJ, are here to give you some valuable tips to avoid this dilemma.

  1. If your purse or diaper bag is deep and dark, you might appreciate some glow-in-the-dark Mod Podge. Dab some on your keys or key chain so you can find them more easily in the dark corners.
  2. Have a regular place to hang them. Of course, this only works if you hang them there!
  3. Get a Bluetooth tracker. A handy little gadget called Tile uses an app on your smartphone and a square tile that you attach to your keychain to track exactly where your keys are hiding.
  4. Make your keychain big and fluffy. Try putting some wild colored pompoms on your keychain so that they are so large they would be hard to miss by touch or line of sight.
  5. Magnetize them. Placing a simple magnet behind the switch plate near the door you use to enter in and out of your home gives you a simple and easy place to slap your keys as you come and go.
  6. Drink wine? Turn a cork into a keychain. This not only will make them easy to find when you are digging in your purse but if dad puts them in the pocket of his swimsuit and they fall out, the keys will float!

What To Do If You Just Can’t Find Them

If you have absolutely lost your key fob, call us at Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru or Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep, premier car dealerships in NJ, and with your keycode or vin number, we can help you replace the key fob to your vehicle. It may not be inexpensive and may take several days, but we can replace it for you. Remember — we are here for you!

Helping to Prevent Auto Theft

Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep, premier car dealerships in NJ, located here in Lakewood, NJ, know just how important your vehicle is to you. One thing that vehicle owners should know more about is how to prevent your car from being stolen. While car thefts across the United States are down overall, 700,000 vehicles were stolen in 2015 according to information compiled by the FBI.

Tips to Secure Your Vehicle

  1. Choose a brightly lit area to park. Supervised and covered lots are best and my cost more. The peace of mind is worth it.
  2. Take your keys, lock your car and set the alarm. Sounds simple but it makes a difference.
  3. Don’t ever leave your car running and unattended.
  4. Put your valuables away. Some vehicles now come with special cubbies to do just that.
  5. Consider having anti-theft features installed in your car, such as tracking devices and ignition disablers.
  6. Be mindful when leaving your vehicle. Take a look at your surroundings. Don’t be distracted or in a hurry so that you don’t forget these important theft prevention tips.
  7. With technology now being the backbone of your vehicle, you need to hack-proof your car as best as you can. Hackers have proven they can take control of cars with technology. Make sure the manufacturer has your current contact information. Always update your vehicle’s software when notified of an update. Keep your key fob in a holder or container making it harder for hackers to attach to its signal. Turn off your bluetooth when not using it in the car.

The All New 2017 Chevy Volt

At Pine Belt Chevrolet, we’re the best among car dealerships in NJ, right here in Lakewood, NJ. We also know something you don’t know about the Chevy Volt hybrid sedan. While the Chevy Volt was redesigned for 2016 into a hybrid, it was only available on a limited basis. This year is the second year of production for the Chevy Volt and it is chock full of changes, making it an all new Chevy Volt for 2017.

Appealing Vibes2017 Chevy Volt2017 Chevy Volt

The body structure is new but interior and exterior styling is less like its concept-car style. Under the frame, the technology includes a revamped plug-in powertrain that boosts upward the all electric range. The new gasoline engine is a redesigned 1.5 liter engine that doesn’t require premium fuel like its predecessor. It gets an EPA rating of 42 miles per gallon when the 18.4 KWh lithium-ion battery pack is no longer charged.

Other hybrids provide about 10 to 20 miles of electric range. In the Chevy Volt, however, you can avoid going to the gas station for weeks and a full tank of gas can get you 400 miles between filling up.

Premier Trim

While the base LT trim on the Volt is packed pretty well with standard and optional equipment available, the Premier Chevy Volt trim is the one to see. The premier has all of the available LT features standard and also offers optional driver safety features. You can also choose an available tan and black interior to upgrade from an all-black motif.

Get Behind the Wheel

Come on into Pine Belt Chevrolet, your number one of Lakewood car dealers, and get behind the wheel of a Chevy Volt today. See what the excitement is all about. Our expert Finance team can have you driving your new 2017 Chevy Volt off the lot same day. Check out our inventory at www.pinebeltchevrolet.com.
