Is a Mechanical Professional Needed For Your Car?

shutterstock_142918999

The car is making a noise. You panic! You automatically think you are going to be taken to the cleaners. Okay, take a breath and before you decide to run off to a mechanic, and take a minute or two to consider your options. Just a little bit of forethought and knowledge will get you to where you need to be.

Find the owner’s manual. Information contained in the owner’s manual is indexed and makes it quick to find solutions to the vehicle’s malady. Maybe it’s user error with the plethora of knobs without know-how on the console.

What is the trim of your car? This can tell you a whole lot about your vehicle. Know where your VIN (vehicle identification number) is located on your car. If you need service, you will need to have the VIN number at your fingertips.

Where do you go if you have to take your car to be serviced? Local garage? Dealership? Easy to answer. Dealership. They are trained experts on YOUR vehicle and whatever the issue, they won’t be guessing and they will fix it right the first time.

If you only have time to get to the local garage, make sure the mechanic is A.S.E. certified. These are trained mechanics and can give you better peace of mind that someone capable is working on your car.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions about why they are doing something or how something works. You are the customer and should always be learning more about your car.

Always ask for quality manufacturer parts. They may c0st a few bucks more but they will ultimately cost you less in maintenance.

Pine Belt Chevrolet Subaru Chrysler Jeep is the place to go if your car or truck needs service. Come on in. We’ll take care of your car like it was one of our own.

Construction the new Subaru of America headquarters has recently commenced in Camden, New Jersey.

Doubling the size of the previous headquarters opens up enough capacity for over 600 employees.

Pine Belt 2 Subaru Forester Showcases its Capabilities in Extreme Winter Conditions

With compact SUVs currently being the hottest segment in the automotive industry, Consumer Reports wanted to find out how some of the top vehicles in the segment perform in extreme winter conditions. At its Auto Test Center in Connecticut, Consumer Reports tested three of the top compact SUVs (Subaru Forester, Honda CR-V, and Toyota RAV4) that are still equipped with their all-season tires. The tests involved straight-line acceleration, braking, hill-climbing, and taking on sharp corner turns. The straight-line acceleration test showed that the Subaru Forester was able to accelerate to 60 mph in 12.1 seconds, surpassing the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 by 1.2 and 2.3 seconds respectively. After undergoing braking tests, results showed that the Forester and RAV4 took about the same distance to come to a halt from 60 mph. It took almost 50 extra yards for the CR-V to come to a stop. During the hill-climbing and corner tests, the Forester showcased its superiority. The all-wheel-drive system worked the way it was meant to as it responded to the driver’s actions and maintain traction throughout the track. After conclusion of the weeks-long tests, Consumer Reports proclaimed the Subaru Forester as the clear winner in snowy conditions. You can experience the all-wheel-drive system on a Subaru Forester for yourself at Pine Belt Subaru in Lakewood.

Jeep Renegade Greatly Contributes to Substantial Growth of Automaker

Pine Belt 1 Jeep Renegade Greatly Contributes to Substantial Growth of Automaker

If Jeep continues this kind of growth, the automaker is on pace for a record-setting year. At the end of October, Jeep had already sold 1,013,000 vehicles. With two more months left in the year, the automaker only needs 14,000 more units sold to set the record. As of October and compared to a 2014, Jeep sales globally are up 22 percent and up 24 percent in the U.S. market. Much of the growth is credited to the Jeep Renegade with 45,000 units sold in the U.S. through October. Furthermore, the automaker is optimistic with the future of the brand as it will be introducing the Jeep Grand Wagoneer SUV in 2018, a new compact crossover late next year, and most likely a Wrangler pickup. This success couldn’t have come at a better time as the automaker is coming into 2016 preparing to celebrate its 75th anniversary. Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep is excited for the future of the brand and you can test drive the Jeep Renegade today!
