Why The Dodge Durango Is An Ideal Daily Driver 

When it comes to an everyday family hauler, there are plenty of options out there on the market. Many families choose SUVs or crossovers because they offer more room than a truck while still offering some off-road capabilities for weekend fun. Other people may be looking for something smaller, like crossover with all wheel drive to accommodate winter weather. Most people who want all wheel drive will opt for either front wheel drive or four wheel drive paired with the 4 cylinder engine.

The Dodge Durango offers buyers an alternative that's not often seen in this class of vehicle: all wheel drive powered by 5 different engines (three gas and two diesel) which includes the popular V6 Pentastar engine paired built by TorqueFlite 8 speed automatic. This gives the Durango a great set of options for buyers who need an everyday vehicle that can tow and isn't afraid of a little rain.

Traditionally, front wheel drive is not well equipped to deal with extra weight from added snow, but four wheel drive often suffers from reduced fuel economy. All wheel drive offers the best of both worlds because it can distribute power to all four wheels at once if necessary (for example, heavy load or bad patches of ice) without suffering too much penalty at the pump. With up to 19 mpg city and 26 highway (V6), the Durango isn't a gas guzzler and it's up to the task in the snow.

The V6 Pentastar engine produces 290 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque is perfect for hauling heavy loads or taking a family on vacation with plenty of room to spread out. All wheel drive is great for maneuvering in wet conditions, but taller vehicles like SUVs can be more cumbersome than smaller vehicles when trying to park or navigate tight spaces such as parking garages. Thankfully, the Dodge Durango only measures 191 inches long and 71 inches wide which gives you nearly 7 feet of cargo space without obstructions from bulky side mirrors (the 4Runner is 191 inches).

There's no reason why an every day driver can't put the emphasis on "everyday." The Durango is engineered to be a comfortable daily driver that'll get you where you need to go in style and with ease. If you have any questions about this popular model, come see us today at Tallassee CJDR in Alabama! 
The 2023 Ram 1500 Explored 

When you think of the words "expertly crafted truck" what brands do you think of? Ford? GMC? Chevy? While these are all excellent brands, there's one mid-size pickup that stands out from the crowd. That is the top-selling 2013 Ram 1500 . This iconic nameplate has won awards including Motor Trend Truck Of The Year every single year since 2009. With good reason too! Not only does it have an award winning track record, but this future classic also features a stunning exterior and interior design along with outstanding performance. For example, take the standard 3.6L Pentastar VVT (Variable Valve Timing) V6 which provides 305hp and 269lb/ft of torque. Not bad for a truck weighing in at 5,046lbs! 

Another fun feature is the air-sprung suspension which can be adjusted to three different settings to suit your driving preference. It also has features like quad beam halogen head lamps and a state-of-the-art Uconnect infotainment system with voice command and hands-free technology. Speaking of the infotainment system, you'll find this standard in both regular cab and quad cab models meaning everyone can appreciate the luxurious entertainment!

The 2023 Ram 1500 also features a steel frame and aluminum exterior panels, which means that if you did get into an unfortunate fender bender the damage would be much easier to repair. On top of all these amazing features, this pickup also has up to a maximum 1,000lbs payload and 7,390lbs maximum towing capacity!

While this truck might not be for everyone (due to it's lack of diesel engine), there's no denying that this is one impressive machine. It's hard not getting excited when discussing such an excellent vehicle. This true workhorse can do anything from daily driving needs like commuting and grocery shopping, to tackling your more adventurous activities like camping and off-roading!

If you'd like to test drive one yourself then look no further than Tallassee CJDR located conveniently in Alabama. We hope this blog has helped you decide on your future purchase and please feel free to contact us with any questions about our inventory or ordering process
Popular In Alabama: The 2022 Chrysler 300C

All that has been talked about for years was how Chrysler could never build a car that would equal the legendary 300C. People couldn't believe it, but they were doing it! The 2020 (and 2021) model year saw all kinds of advances in safety technology and power. Well, guess what? It's 2022 now, and they've done it again!

For the 2022 lineup, the design team really brought their A game. Unlike older 300Cs which had a very boxy look to them in profile view, this one is much smoother and more gradual, especially in the hood. The headlights are very distinctive looking, but not out of place on this classic model. 

The power is something else again for this year's model. It seems like Chrysler has really hit their stride lately with engines-the 2020 300C was the first ever 6-cylinder powered full size luxury sedan--and they aren't slowing down now. The 3.0L V6 Supercharged engine (yes you read right) will give you plenty of room to accelerate onto the highway or get away from would be speeders behind you. And where you'll go best will definitely be in comfort! The upgraded interior includes a new type of suspension which will really give you that smooth ride. 

So, if you're looking for a luxury sedan with the power and looks that will stand out from the pack but doesn't break your budget--and can go toe-to-toe with anything on wheels today-then you owe it to yourself to visit us here at Tallassee CJDR and check out this amazing vehicle!

In this day and age, it is extremely difficult to find a car that can accommodate a family of 5 or more. Sure there are vans, but they're inconvenient in many ways. In order to travel comfortably, the perfect car must have enough room for all passengers while having lots of storage space for luggage and other items. It must also be fast, reliable, and stylish.

8 Common Questions About The 2022 Jeep WagoneerPhoto Source: Jeep

Known for its rugged frame, outstanding 4x4 capabilities, and off-road prowess, the Jeep Wagoneer is a popular choice among outdoor adventurers. The classic SUV has been around for over 60 years and is likely to make a comeback in 2022. Those who are still interested should ask themselves these common questions about the new vehicle.


What Will The Jeep Wagoneer Be Like?

There is no word yet on the design of the upcoming model, but according to J.P. Lau, a product manager for Jeep brand, it will have "functionality of [a] truck and on-road manners." Many people are interested in how well it will handle being off-road and whether or not it will still be able to tow something like a boat or small camper trailer. As long as the vehicle has all the features that Jeeps are known for and an attractive look, its buyers should be happy with what they get out of it.

Will It Still Be Capable Off-Roading?

Yes! According to Automotive News, Mike Manley, CEO of Jeep brand, said "We have no intention of losing any capability that our customers demand." This means that the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer will still be able to traverse unpaved roads and trails without any trouble. It is likely that it will have a similar suspension system as the Wrangler, which allows the vehicle to climb over boulders and other obstacles on difficult terrain. The new SUV should not be underestimated when it comes to its off-road capabilities.

Will It Have Air Conditioning And A Radio?

Yes! The new Wagoneer will definitely come equipped with both. Automotive News described it having more luxurious features than previous versions did, including heated leather seats, an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a foldable windshield. The vehicle definitely still includes everything that we have come to expect from it.

How Much Will It Cost?

The new Jeep is expected to start around $30,000 and can go up above $40,000 for high-end models. This means that the Wagoneer will be similar in price to some of its competitors, such as the Ford Explorer and Toyota 4Runner. With a more upscale interior than those vehicles, however, this upcoming SUV may be worth the slightly higher cost.

Will It Be In Production In 2022?

Yes! According to Car And Driver, production of the Wagoneer should begin sometime in late 2019 or 2020 at Tofaş Plant in Turkey. A prototype should be finished by 2019, which will give the public a chance to look it over before its official release date. The vehicle will then go on sale in 2021 or 2022.

Can I Test Drive It?

Yes! Anyone who is interested in the new Wagoneer has the chance to test drive one at Tallassee CDJR located off of Highway 84. You can get more details about the model, schedule a test drive, and browse our inventory of other Jeeps for sale at https://tallasseecdjr.com/jeep-models.

Dodge Hellcat Lineup - What Is It And Is It For You?

 

The 2021 Dodge Hellcat Lineup is a series of Dodge vehicles that are the most powerful cars Dodge has ever made. The Tallassee Automotive Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership carries all four models, so if you're looking to buy one, come on down!

Dodge is known for making some of the most powerful cars on the market, and Dodge owners love them. The Dodge Hellcat lineup continues that trend with their Power By Dodge version of these vehicles. With more power than ever before! If you're not familiar with Dodge's older models like the Challenger SRT Demon or Charger Scat Pack Widebody, let me break it down for you below.

- Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye - This one has a supercharged V-12 engine producing up to 800 horsepower thanks to an advanced twin-screw supercharger system from IHI found in Lamborghini engines as well as upgraded fuel injectors and pistons from Dodge's sister company, Dodge SRT.

- Dodge Challenger Hellcat - It has the same engine as its Redeye brother but without some of the upgrades like having a smaller supercharger impeller for better low-end torque and throttle response. Since it doesn't have those parts, they also made sure to upgrade everything else with things like forged pistons instead of cast ones found in older versions that give you more strength since this car can do 0-60 mph in under four seconds which is faster than almost every other sports vehicle on the market right now!

- Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody - This one takes what was already an awesome muscle sedan and makes it even meaner looking by adding 20"x11" lightweight wheels with 305/35ZR20 Pirelli tires on the front and rear. Dodge also upgraded its suspension with world-class Brembo brakes, SRT Performance shocks, springs, and sway bars to help it handle more while retaining a comfortable ride quality. It has all the power of the regular Hellcat but placed into this cool-looking sedan makes it even better!

- Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat - This car is not brand new since Dodge made some changes that are noticeable in 2020 models but if you want one from 2021 then these are what they have done to make your high horsepower dreams come true under the hood. They dropped aluminum cylinder heads on top of stronger pistons for reduced weight up there which allows them to crank out even more power than before. Dodge also made some changes to the supercharger that helps give this car more low-end torque and horsepower by upgrading it with a larger impeller for better airflow on top of their new air intake system which makes it even faster! There isn't much else you can do to make cars like these anymore powerful, but Dodge is always up for the challenge anyway so if they find something then we might be seeing another Hellcat in production sooner rather than later!

The Dodge Hellcat lineup is a great car for any Dodge enthusiast or if you just want to turn some heads driving down the road! Stop by your Tallassee Automotive Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership for more information on what we have in stock and how you can find one that best fits your lifestyle of choice!

Taking Your Doors Off Your Jeep The Correct Way
Jeep makes amazing vehicles that can take the brunt of any weather. Whether it be snowy or sunny, rocky mountains or the swamp, a Jeep is going to be by your side no matter what. Since the summer is ongoing, people love to go out and enjoy the sun.

With the Jeep, you can make going out even more fun with their modular design. This way, you can lose the doors and the center roof and store them safely. This open concept lets you and your fellow passengers enjoy the trail too. 

How to Remove the Doors Yourself 
The doors can be removed by the owner themselves, but this does not mean that you should not prepare for it. Get a blanket or a mat to put the doors on. These are heavy doors, and it is best that you lift them under someone's supervision. You can store them away in your garage.
  • Make sure you roll down the windows before you start removing the doors.
  • Get the toolkit from the center console of your Jeep and take out #T50 Torx drive.
  • Use the said Torx head and remove all the screws present in the hinges. Take out all the screws from both the bottom and top hinges.
  • Store all the screws together so that you do not lose them.
  • Find the access for all the plastic wiring and then push it forward.
  • Push down the black security tab.
  • Remove the screws from the center door and store them away safely.
  • Now gently open the door and lift it upwards. You should be able to get it off the hinges easily, and now your door has been removed.
To avoid scratches and dents, it is best that you put a blanket or thick mat underneath the doors when storing them. 

Jeep removable doors add to the Jeep off-roading quotient and let you enjoy the sun this time of the year. A doorless Jeep is a fun Jeep. You can come on down to Tallassee CDJR in AL for more fun Jeep tips. We will be more than happy to help you and clear all your doubts regarding the Jeep vehicles. We're a short drive away from Montgomery, Auburn, and Weptumka.
How To Prepare Your Vehicle For Summer
 
Extremes in temperature are hard on a vehicle and its engine. Summer is difficult as heat makes your cooling and other systems work harder. Harsh sunlight can also accelerate wear and tear on rubber parts like hoses. There are ways to minimize the toll on the vehicle and go on summer road trips.

How to "Summerize" Your Vehicle

1. Replace Winter Tires: The first thing to do is put new tires on your vehicle. Snow tires are geared to handle rough road conditions and are not needed in the summer. Experts recommend having two sets of wheels on hand - one with winter tires and another with all-season tires. You just swap out the tires, and there is no need to get alignment and balancing. Once this is done, check to see if the tires are inflated properly.

2. Check the A/C: Summer is long distance driving season with the kids out of school. Ensure that the A/C is working properly before you get any work done, like plugging leaks or filling up on coolant.

3. Inspect wipers: This is one of many maintenance tips that could be overlooked easily. You want good visibility, so you should check if the wipers are in good shape. If not, replace the wipers and top off the wiper fluid. Getting rid of bugs then becomes easy.

4. Check under the hood: Inspect and see if the battery is in good working other. You may need to get an oil change done before you head out on a road trip. Check coolant and other fluid levels so that you don't face problems while driving.

Once you have finished all these chores, take your car in for a good wash and cleaning. You are officially ready to drive away on vacation.

If you want to take the guesswork out of summer vehicle maintenance, take your vehicle to the Tallassee CJDR dealership in Tallassee, AL. The service department will take care of your vehicle and prepare it for long road trips. Customers in neighboring cities like Montgomery, Auburn, and Weptumka are welcome at the dealership too.

2021 Dodge SRT Line-Up
 
Speculation about SRT being phased out among Dodge vehicles in 2021 has been put to rest for now. The 2021 Dodge SRT lineup has a lot of choices. What does this mean for consumers? It means that some incredible performances are still available for driving and enjoyment. 

Here is a look at the 2021 Dodge SRT lineup:

A masterpiece, the 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT has the same engine as the Charger. This "muscle" coupe is available in an AWD. Everything about this vehicle screams speed and comfort. Comfort thanks to top-of-the-line leather seats, 5 passenger seating, and all the safety and security features you could think of. Available in multiple trims and customizable, the only way to experience the power of Challenger is to drive it.

With a Hellcat Redeye wide body, the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT is another high-performance vehicle. With a 6.2l, high output, supercharged Hemi V8 engine, this sedan is the most powerful on the market. It is part of the street-dominating vehicles famously designed and marketed by Dodge. Everything about this vehicle has been revamped - dashboards, seat, engine. What else could be expected for this exclusive vehicle anyway?

The 2021 Dodge Durango SRT marks the start of a new era with a brand new HEMI SRT Hellcat engine. It can reach 180-mph thanks to the 710-horsepower generated by the V8 engine. With Brembo six-piston and four-piston front/back brakes and 20x10-inch lights-out wheels, the Durango ST can handle any driving conditions. The interiors are beautifully designed for comfort and luxurious driving. Check out the Durango SRT 392 as well and test drive it to find out how it performs.

2021 Dodge Challenger Packages
 
Having some of the brawniest and most powerful vehicles in its lineup, Dodge has been making excellent muscle cars for decades. These bug sedans and V8 welding machines have been overhauled in recent years to make them more efficient and safer. 

Now available with a V6, the Dodge Challenger is finally tame enough to be a daily driver too. The interiors have been redone from scratch and at the $30k mark, Dodge has some very tempting offerings. 

As in true Dodge fashion, each of their cars can be modified with their already existing packages. These offer both performance and luxury upgrades and can make your car a sweeter ride for only a few thousand dollars. 

Here are a few special packages that will help your Dodge stand out from the crowd.

Blacktop Package
This package is available exclusively on the SX, GT, and R/T trims. It gives your car a black decklid spoiler, dark brushed interiors, and a satin black badge. It also gets you aluminum wheels that look nice in contrast to the black additions. Starting as low as $1000, this is something that every dodge owner should get for their cars. 

Scat Pack
Having origins in the Frank Sinatra song "Rat Pack", this was a marketing strategy to show how quick the cars are. Scat Pack ensures that you get a retuned and high-performance version of the car with 20-inch rims. Apple Carplay and Android Auto come as standard, and a leather-wrapped performance is also put in. 

R/T
An abbreviation for race/track, the R/T package makes your car track-ready as well as road-worthy. This is because, in the 60s, Dodge was competing both in NASCAR and street races too.

In most cases, the R/T pack gets a V8 with retuned suspension. The 20-inch wheels help you in controlling the car and the boosted performance is hard to beat at this price point.
The new Challenger is a great mix of power and performance. The 2021 Dodge Challenger makes up for all the fallacies of the previous generation and is much more refined than its predecessors. 

To test drive the Challenger Special Editions, come on down to Tallassee CJDR in Tallassee, AL, and experience these beasts yourself. If you live near Montgomery, Auburn, or Weptumka, our dealership is just a short drive away.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L | Extended Legacy

 

As the 5th Generation of the Grand Cherokee rolls out for the new decade, Jeep has made a three-row model inspired by the Wagoneer. The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L is a 6 or 7 seater SUV that gets a new air suspension and technology overhaul.


Combining finesse and brute strength, this 3 row SUV has every bit of the Jeep flair that you expect. The longer wheelbase does not mean that the off-roading capabilities are let go of in this edition. Starting at just under $40k, this is a great option for people for large families looking for an SUV.


Engine

The powertrains have been carried over from the previous generation and you get a 3.6 liter V6 as standard. The 5.7-liter V8 variant has 357hp to its name and can produce 390 lb-ft of torque. You can only turn off selected cylinders in the Overland and Summit models.

The Grand Cherokee L has less power output due to the longer wheelbase. It is 6.9 inches bigger than the regular one and does a great job of accommodating the 3rd row. On the other hand, the towing capacity remains unaffected. The V6 can tow 6200 pounds easily, while the V8 can tow loads up to 7200 lbs. 


Interiors

For 2021 the cabin has been redesigned to give it a more posh feel. The new aesthetics are great and the 8.4-inch touchscreen comes standard. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come as standard. A 10.1-inch screen comes standard in the Summit variant. 

The materials used inside are on the premium side of the spectrum and make the overhauled cabin look great. The LED lighting and 12 USB ports are also standard across the range. 

This extended Jeep Grand Cherokee is a great addition to the 2021 Jeep lineup. New Jeeps have been perfecting the mix of performance and luxury and 2021 is the year they finally nailed it. 


Come on down to Tallassee CJDR and experience the new Jeeps yourself. We will be more than happy to answer all your questions and clear all your doubts regarding the new Jeep Grand Cherokee L. Our Tallassee, AL, dealership is just a short drive from Montgomery, Auburn, and Weptumka.

2021 Ram 1500 Models and Trims
 
The Ram 1500 has won many awards and accolades. Its redesign helped in dethroning Chevrolet Silverado after it became the vehicle for the second-highest sale in 2019 in the United States. The 2021 Ram Truck lineup is pretty impressive and popular. 

Ram 1500 versus Ram 1500 Classic

There are two different versions of the Ram 1500 on the market. These are the Ram 1500 Classic and Ram 1500. 

Crew Cab versus Quad 

The 2021 Ram 1500 has seven trims in total. All the trucks feature distinct bed and cab choices that can offer more cargo space or legroom. The Quad and Crew are two of the bigger choices. The Crew Cab offers more rear legroom, while the Quad Cab features more cargo space.

Its transmission has an engine oil cooler and an electric shift as a standard attribute. The truck's interior has a vinyl floor covering to ensure durability. Also, the cabin is equipped with a rear back-up camera, remote USB port, 6 speakers in total, an audio jack input, and a twelve-volt auxiliary power outlet. Its exterior features 18-inch wheels made of steel. 

3. Laramie

2021 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2021 Ford Bronco: Compare SUVs

 

With the arrival of the 2021 Ford Bronco, there is bound to be a big battle for supremacy in the segment of the off-road vehicle. So, the new Bronco is all set to give a tough competition to the 2021Jeep Wrangler. Is the new Ford Bronco superior to the Jeep Wrangler? The answer to this question is not yet known but come into Tallassee Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram and see for yourself why we're saying the 2021 Jeep Wrangler is the winner..

First, there are plenty of similarities between these two vehicles. Even the hardware for their amazing off-road powers is similar. So is their ability to remove doors and roofs, as well as, vast ranges of the configurations. However, they have some major differences as well. The article does a brief SUV comparison  by comparing the 2021 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2021 Ford Bronco.

Profile

The profile of the Jeep Wrangler is similar to its predecessor. The same cannot be said about Bronco as the last generation's production was stopped in 1996. However, the new SUV has similarities to its original model.

Although the profiles of these two SUVs are different, there are similarities in their rear sections. They have unique cues but have similar characteristics of the rugged variety. These two SUVs have spare tires on the tailgate to start with. Additionally, both the SUVs are prominently boxy and have the roof in place, similar to their stylish predecessors.

However, there are features that set the two of them apart. While the Bronco has vertical, rectangular light units, the Wrangler has square lights. Additionally, the Bronco has a distinctly taller beltline as compared to the Wrangler. It is clearly visible from the back leading to a larger area for its tailgate. The taller beltline is also visible from the sides. It is for this reason that the roofline of the Bronco appears to be slightly lower.

Roof and Doors

Both the Bronco and the Wrangler may be stripped of their roof and doors. The former is available in different types of configurations. The only feature that is available in the Jeep Wrangler, which is missing on the Bronco, is its foldable windshield.

2021 Chrysler 300 Performance

 
Chrysler 300 might just be one of the very few 4-door sedans available at this price point. With the new SUVs taking the pedestal this large sedan is one of the rare finds that one can definitely bank upon. The car is big with comfortable interiors and generous cabin space.

For 2021 the posh and upscale 300C and Limited variants have been dropped from the lineup. This leaves just the 300S, Touring and Touring L now available for the market. New standard equipment has been added like the blind-spot monitoring, parking sensors, and rear traffic alert. This makes the car up to date with all the other cars of the 21st century. The styling is classic and can be a statement piece even in this decade. A classic macho looking grille more than makes for what the car lacks.

Engine
Available in a V6 and V8 variant the Chrysler 300 is a big car with a sweet purring engine. The V8 might sound great on paper but on the roads, it is a fuel guzzler. It has the same mileage as that of a pickup truck. The fuel price is nicely balanced by the optimal riding experience. The rear-wheel-drive stands out from the rest in the large sedan market and the Hemi V8 is capable of pushing the car over 60mph only in 5.3s while the V6 would take 6.3s.

Performance
The body roll is very controllable and the handling is greater than what you would be expecting. The chassis and the steering are responsive but only to a certain degree. When the car is pushed aggressively it becomes a little numb at the wheels. But taking into account the fact that this is a luxury car and not a sports car, this fact shouldn't bother you much.

If you are in Auburn, Montgomery, or Wetumpka we will be more than happy to help you with a great Chrysler deal. Come by the dealership, and we will answer all your questions about the vehicle. Want to know more about Chrysler 300 tow points? No worries just give us a call, and we'll be happy to answer.

What is Tire Rotation and Why Does It Matter?

 
Understanding Tire Rotation
Tire rotation is one of the cheapest and simplest ways to enhance tire life.

Car tires wear down with driving and develop tread patterns. However, they wear down unequally and not all tires wear down at the same time. For instance, the front tires wear sooner than the rear ones, because the engine is located at the front. Your turning habits, the terrain where you drive and the car usage are among the other factors that affect the tire lifespan. Tire rotation or tire swapping is therefore done to make sure all tires evenly wear down.

At Tallassee, AL dealership, we offer professional tire rotation services. We are located close to Montgomery and extend our services to Auburn and Wetumpka cities too.

Why tire rotation matters
  • The procedure equalizes the tread wear patterns while offering you a safer and smoother ride. Tire rotation as well makes handling and traction consistent across tires.
  • Your tires last longer. This means you can drive more miles before getting new tires. Further, to benefit from mileage warranty, you need to get tire rotations done as recommended.
Generally, car tires need to be rotated every 5000 miles. You can however refer to your manufacturer's manual to precisely know when to get it done.

We at Tallassee, AL center suggest you getting your tires rotated when you go to your dealer for oil change service. Your technician can best judge when your tires need rotation.

Reach out to us if you are looking for Tallassee CJDR tire rotation. Our technicians are highly professional, come with rich experience and are trained to the highest standards.

Helpful Tips for Test Driving a Used Car

 
Test-driving a used car is a very important step before its purchase. When you test drive a used car you can come across many defects that may not be visible on its records.

1. Check the engine and starter
Before you test drive a used vehicle, open its hood and visually inspect the engine and its oil. Notice the fluid levels. Check if there are any leaks or unusual sounds coming from the engine. Dark sludgy deposits on the oil filler cap's interior indicate that the oil has not been regularly changed.

When you start the vehicle, notice the speed of air conditioning and heating system. Check how long they take to start. Repairs to both can be expensive.

2. Inspect the steering wheel closely.
Once you get inside the car turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and right. The steering wheel should move without any resistance or excessive tugging. Steering wheel repairs can be major or minor depending on which part needs repairs.

3. Examine the brakes and transmission.
The brakes should be straight and compatible. The brakes should work well at all speeds. If they vibrate or make a strange sound, they may need to be replaced or contain inferior components.

Check if the transmission is jerking or shifting late. The transmission system can deteriorate due to neglect by the owner. The continuously variable transmission in some higher mileage cars can have a short shelf life. Replacing the transmission can be costly.

4. Drive with closed windows and open windows.
Drive the vehicle with the windows closed and with the windows open. Listen carefully to any piping, squeaking or other unusual sounds coming from the engine.

5. Driving duration and surfaces.
If you are seriously considering purchasing a particular used car, then drive for a longer duration. Drive on different surfaces like rough surfaces and highways. Use all the gears of the car and drive at different speeds.

If you are looking for a used car in Tallassee, Alabama you can book an appointment with Tallassee CJDR to test drive a used car. They also cater to residents of Montgomery, Auburn, and Wetumpka.

How to Read a CARFAX Vehicle History Report?

Going through a CARFAX Vehicle History Report is crucial while purchasing a used car. It can save you from false claims and make you a smart buyer. Once you go through a CARFAX report, you will know the vehicle inside out, and you can be confident of the purchase. It will help you verify all the claims and provide you with peace of mind.
A CARFAX Vehicle History Report provides detailed information about a vehicle's history. From details of its owners to major damages, it has everything that should concern you as a buyer.

However, if you are reading a Vehicle History Report for the first time, it can be a bit of a challenge. You won't know which parts to focus on and which parts to browse casually. Segregating what is important from what is not and then going through the important sections is crucial. There might be cases where you will have to focus on specific sections of the report more depending on the condition of the vehicle. That's not it, even if you know how to read other such reports, a CARFAX Vehicle History Report is slightly different from others.

To ease your way through all these difficulties, you can go through the below-compiled details:

History-Based Value
Probably the most important section of a CARFAX report.
The history-based value is calculated by carefully considering events that a vehicle went through, age of the vehicle, number of kilometers etc. It is an excellent cost-to-quality representative for a used vehicle and needs to be considered seriously.

Ownership History
Knowing the number and types of owners a vehicle has had is an absolute must. It will give you a good idea about the overall condition of the vehicle. Always go for a car previously owned by individuals instead of rental companies or other businesses. You will know about this once you go through this section of the report.

Damages History
Go through this section very carefully and check for every part that could have been affected due to an accident. You can even consider taking help from a trusted mechanic to be sure if every part of the vehicle is in acceptable condition.

===========================================
How to Check Your Tire Pressure?

 
Maintaining your vehicle's tires at the recommended pressure levels is crucial. Such tires provide better on-road traction and braking. They enable you to navigate corners safely and efficiently. Good tire pressure decreases the risk of premature tire wearing. Refer to your owner's manual to be informed about the right tire pressure for your vehicle model. 

Visit our tire and auto service center in Tallassee for any tire issues.
You can check the tire pressure on your own and prevent problems due to loss of pressure.

  • Ensure that the tires are "cold" before you start to check the pressure. Tires are "cold" in the early morning when you have not started your vehicle yet. You can bring tires to a "cold" condition by letting the car sit in the shade for 3 to 4 hours after driving.

  • Bringing tires to a "cold" condition is key to getting accurate pressure reading. Tires get hot after the vehicle has been in use. This increases the pressure. If you gauge the pressure in this condition, then the reading is high and inaccurate.

  • Lowering the pressure of hot tires is not recommended. Pressure decreases as tires cool. This will further reduce the pressure and the reading is usually incorrect.
  • Remove the cap on the tire's valve stem.
  • Press the gauging device into the valve stem. In case of a digital gauge, the reading should be immediately visible.
  • If you are using a pointer or stick-type gauge, then wait for the pointer to move, or the stick to pop out, respectively, to view the reading.
  • Do not be concerned if you hear a "pssst" sound. This is the sound of air being released from the tire. This release will not have any significant impact on the reading.
  • Compare the pressure with the level specified in the vehicle manual.
If it is below the recommended level, then you could inflate the tire using an air compressor on your own. Bring the pressure to the recommended level. Check the pressure again following the above steps.

If the pressure is high, then release some air, and check the pressure again. Repeat till you get the reading specified in your manual. 

You can bring your vehicle to our auto shop at Tallassee in AL. Our certified technicians will check tire pressure and fill them to appropriate levels. We can get the job done faster, saving you time and efforts. If you are in Wetumpka, Auburn, or Montgomery, then we are only a short drive away from you.

5 Benefits of Setting Up Your HomeLink Jeep Garage Door Opener

 

Jeep vehicles now come with a HomeLink system that allows them to connect to the garage doors. This way, you can open and close the gates by touching a dial in your car. Now that every carmaker in the country understands the ease of access it offers, the HomeLink system's reputation has been growing. In this article, we will be discussing the 5 benefits you will experience by setting up your HomeLink system.

Easy to Program 
Programming HomeLink is simple as it automatically locates and synchronizes with the original transmitter's code. This makes programming quick and easy.

Compatible
The HomeLink system works with hundreds and thousands of different gate systems and garage door openers.

Convenient 
You will always find HomeLink in the same place. It will be right in your jeep ready to respond. You won't have to search for the remote control of the garage door.

Versatile
The HomeLink system is capable of controlling property gates, garage doors, alarm systems, interior and exterior lighting, and more.

No Batteries
 Instead of batteries, the HomeLink system gets its power from the electrical system of your automobile.

Needless to say, the HomeLink system offers a multitude of benefits. However, in order to enjoy these benefits, you must know how to program the garage door opener. Here is how you can set up the HomeLink system:

Keep the old garage door opener about 3 inches away from your vehicle's HomeLink system. Select a button on the system to act as the switch for opening the garage doors. Push the two buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds.

Continue doing this until the message on the EVIC of your vehicle changes from "Training" to "Trained". If the message doesn't change even after a while, don't panic. It just means that your garage doors have built-in extra security.

Go to your garage doors and click on the "Smart/Learn" button to start programming. Immediately get back to your vehicle and keep on pressing the HomeLink button until the EVIC message shifts to "Trained".

If the message is not still changed to "Trained", you have to be patient. For some vehicles, you will need to repeat the last step once or twice. To know more about how to connect Jeep garage door opener, contact the experts at the Tallassee CJD dealership in Tallassee, AL.

RAM is Awarded Truck of the Year

 

Continuing its streak of wins, the RAM 1500 was named the "Truck of the Year (2021)" by MotorTrend again. It is the first time in the publications 71 year history that a company has won the award 3 times in a row. Ram has been doing tremendously well and has won 6 out the 10 titles in the last decade.

The prestigious award is bestowed upon a vehicle that has great value for money. Mostly it also provides a superior experience as compared to its contemporaries and has better performance too. The truck market is brutally competitive, and being only a decade old as a standalone company, Ram has done everything right. The three consecutive awards are a testament to the quality and of the trucks made by Ram. They are also an insignia of the faith put into the brand by the customers and critics alike to make it better than ever. 

Features 
Ram offers a manual transmission for its 2500 and 3500 option when paired with Cummins engine. This makes it appealing to all the enthusiasts as well as seasoned drivers who like the stick shift. When it comes to safety, most people do not pay heed to it, especially in the pickup truck market. Ram scores high on this front too and takes the cake. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently changed its criteria for being the best in class and made it a lot stricter. The 2021 Ram fared well here too and was able to bag the "Top Safety Pick", a first for a pickup truck.

Ram is the first in its segment to offer a 100lbs-ft torque all thanks to a revised Cummins engine. Also, the towing capacity of the Ram 3500 is 37,000 lbs, which is class-leading. Over the last 3 decades, RAM accounts for the highest percentage of pickup trucks on the road, and we don't think this is going to change anytime soon.

Where to Find
If you are in Montogomery, Auburn or Weptumka, make sure to visit your Tallassee Ram dealer. We will be more than happy to guide you through the trim options and test ride your vehicle to make up your mind.

Chrysler 300 Touring vs. 300c vs. 300s: Trim Level Comparison

 

Chrysler 200 is a large SUB that offers a bold exterior design and powerful engine options. Even though it is not lightweight, the ride it offers is so comfortable that it makes up for it. The car comes with a long list of features - standard and available, that makes it the perfect blend of power and comfort. In this article, we will be comparing the three trim levels of Chrysler - Chrysler 300 Touring, 300c, and 300s.

Chrysler 300 Touring
The Chrysler 300 Touring is proof why luxury classification is important. Like all trim levels, there are four-doors and ample space for seating 5 people. It is powered by a 3.6 litre V6 engine along with 8-speed automatic transmission. 

This entry-level trim comes with power-adjustment and cloth upholstery for the driver-seat. Other features of the Touring includes Dual-zone automatic climate control, Uconnect 4C system, 8.4-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a six-speaker stereo system, and 4G LTE WiFi.

Chrysler 300s
Even though 300S gets its power from the same V6 engine, it is capable of producing 300 hp and 264 lb.ft. of torque. This trim comes with black trim pieces and accents along with fun paddle shifters for the driver's seats. 

300S can add the SafetyTec Plus Group that includes popular features like blind-spot monitor, lane departure warning, rain-activated windshield wipers, forward collision warning, and automatic high beams. It is also possible to add GPS Navigation to this trim level.

Chrysler 300c
This trim level is powered by a 5.7 liter Hemi V8 engine that produces 363 hp and 394 lb. ft. of torque. It also includes bigger brakes to get an enhanced performance feel. Chrysler 300 tow points are located on the front-end frame that can help hook a tow chain to the car.

The 300C comes with high intensity high and low beams with a unique-looking grille. There are multiple exterior accents with a platinum finish. On the inside, it has an upholstery made of quilted leather. The natural-pore wood in the interiors gives the car a high-class look. There is also an option for luxury floor mats.

If you are looking for performance, you would want to consider the 300S upgraded to the 300C trim levels. Even though both are appealing, the former has more performance features and less cost. If you want a well-rounded vehicle that offers plenty of amenities and a comfortable ride, Touring is the one. For the thrill-seeking drivers, 300C is the model to go for. 

In case you are having trouble making the decision, head to the Tallassee CJD dealership for a test drive.

How To Save Money When Buying Gas

 
Cars that cover significant distances can really pile on the pressure on owners who have to bear with paying high gas prices every year. However, there are various ways of saving money on gas, and in this post, we'll talk about some of them in detail.

The first thing you can do to save money on gas is to purchase a car with decent fuel economy. If you live in and around Montgomery, Auburn, or Wetumpka, and want to check out some cars that offer quality gas mileage, visit Tallassee CJD in Tallassee, AL.

1. Join Reward Programs
There are numerous gas rewards programs that are typically offered by big gas station chains. Such rewards programs may be available on a loyalty basis or through credit card companies that have tie-ups with the chains. If you're applying for a special credit card to save money, ensure that you don't use it for other purposes for maximizing your rewards and minimizing debt. 

2. Use Tools for Gas Price Comparison 
Several tools allow car owners to find out available fuel rewards at their nearest gas stations. As these tools depend on users to update information regarding the latest premium gas offers, the available information may not always reflect accurate information. However, they're still quite reliable.

3. Maintain Tire Pressure
Saving those dollars on gas isn't always down to discounts and reward programs. Sometimes, it's all about your car's tire pressure, which needs to be at its optimum level to make your car more fuel efficient. Checking tire pressure is dirt cheap and many gas stations offer free air as well.

4. Warehouse Club Membership
Warehouse club memberships can be beneficial in several ways and not just for saving your money on gas. Even though the initial cost of membership may be high for some clubs, most are affordable.

The best way to save money when buying gas is to combine all four of the tips stated above.

For exciting gas reward cards and offers on cars, visit Tallassee CJD in Tallassee, AL, located near Auburn, Montgomery, and Wetumpka.

Teaching Your Teen How To Drive

 
If you live in Auburn, Montgomery, or Wetumpka, you're most welcome to visit Tallassee CJD in Tallassee, AL, where you can look for a wide selection of cars and car accessories.  In this special post, we're going to talk about how to teach your teen to drive effectively, because after all, driving is a major life skill.

1. Familiarize Your Teen With the Car
Before you step into the car with your teen for a drive, you must talk about the basics and familiarize him/her with the fundamentals of the car. The first stage of teaching is all about orientation, and it involves learning about fuelling the vehicle, inflating the tires, checking the oil, changing tires, fastening seat belts, starting and stopping the engine, turning the headlights on and off, turning the windshield wipers on and off, and understanding the dashboard.

2. Start Letting Your Teen Drive
After your teen has made it through stage 1 successfully, it's time to slowly get him/her acclimatized to the steering wheel. This stage involves backing the car safely, making safe turns, signaling, shifting gears (if the car has a manual transmission), and stopping the car smoothly.

3. Let Your Teen Tackle Local Roads
Now that your teen has some idea about maneuvering a car safely and using its brakes, it's time to let him/her tackle the roads. It's best to start exploring the roads in the vicinity of your home without taking to the highways. The third stage involves driving courteously, making safe and smooth lane changes, navigating through intersections, obeying traffic signs, operating within speed limits, checking blind spots, and using mirrors.

4. Help Your Teen Learn and Master Parking
Parking skills are just as important as driving skills, and in this fourth stage, you should help your teen develop the former. It involves parking on hills (facing both downhill and uphill), safe parallel parking, and pulling into and out of a diagonal space and a 90-degree space. Teaching your teen how to make U-turns and three-point turns is also a good idea at this stage.

It's best to wait until your teen has successfully mastered the four stages mentioned above when it comes to advanced skills. We hope you found this post useful. Visit us at Tallassee CJD in Tallassee, AL, near Wetumpka, Auburn, and Montgomery.

  • Hydro blue
  • Light brownstone
  • Olive green
  • Sangria
  • Slate blue
  • Spitfire orange
  • Velvet red
Features
The 2021 Jeep Cherokee 80th Anniversary 4x4 is not as feature-packed as the Jeep Grand Cherokee's 80th Anniversary edition. However, it still manages to impress with features such as:
  • 19" wheels with a granite crystal finish
  • Panoramic sunroof
  • Uconnect system
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Leather seats with light tungsten accents
The only major drawback of the 2021 Jeep Cherokee 80th Anniversary 4x4 in comparison to the Grand Cherokee is the lack of the ProTech II package, which is a suite of safety features.

Benefits of Purchasing an Extended Warranty

 
If you plan on driving your car in Tallassee, AL, for the long term, then you'll need an extended warranty. 

An extended warranty starts when your vehicle's original manufacturer's warranty comes to an end. The original warranty usually lasts between two to four years, depending on the manufacturer, make and model.

Some original warranties also count mileage, so 3 years/ 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. But more and more people are keeping their cars longer now. That means that unless you get an extended warranty, you could have to pay for costly repairs yourself later on. If anything happens to your car after the original warranty period ends, you'll be responsible for its repair. You'll also have to pay for regular servicing and maintenance.
How can an extended warranty help?

An extended warranty starts from the point the manufacturer warranties expire, and provides many of the same benefits. Here are the benefits of getting an extended warranty:

Choices in Policies
You aren't limited to buying an extended warranty from the manufacturer. Although these have many benefits, such as original parts used in repairs, and company technicians doing maintenance service, there are other options. Many dealerships also offer extended warranty choices, as do companies. You can find one that best suits your needs.

Avoid Costly Repairs
Extended warranties are a pre-emptive protection plan for your car. Without an extended warranty, you'll have to cover the costs of inevitable wear and tears yourself.

Types of Coverage
When you purchase an extended warranty, you get three kinds of coverage. The first is a comprehensive coverage that will cover the main electrical and mechanical components up to a limited number of years and/or mileage. This depends on the warranty provider, but a common example is 6years/60,000 miles, whichever comes first. You also get a limited powertrain warranty, as well as bumper to bumper coverage options.

Protect Your Investment
Buying a car is an expensive investment. Your car may need unexpected repairs after the original warranty period ends. At the repair shop, you'll have to pay for the repairs yourself. An extended warranty provides coverage for both the parts as well as labor costs for these repairs, as well as general maintenance.

Maintain Re-sale Value
If your car has extended warranty, then you'll get a better price for it when you try to sell it later. If a car has extended warranty, this shows it was maintained. Keep your peace of mind when it comes to maintaining your car over the long term.

Roadside Assistance: Most extended warranties from the original manufacturer come with 24/7 Roadside Assistance.

If you live in Auburn, Montgomery, or Weptumka in AL, then visit our Tallassee CJD dealership in Tallassee, AL, to get an extended warranty for your car!

Powerful, affordable, and full of upgrades that give you a personalized driving experience, both these cars from Dodge will turn heads no matter where you drive in Tallassee, Alabama.

Where the main difference lies between the 2020 Dodge Charger and the Challenger, lies in the functions they serve. The 2020 Dodge Charger is a four-door sedan with amazing safety ratings that is perfect for anyone looking for a muscle car to drive their family around in. On the other hand, the 2020 Dodge Challenger is built for speed, and to that end, is smaller in size than the Dodge Charger.

When it comes to the engines and powertrains, both the 2020 Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger provide very similar offerings.

The 2020 Dodge Charger is slightly more expensive than the Challenger, with a starting price of $29,895 against the Challenger's $27,995. But given that the Charger is a four-door sedan with ample interior space, the additional amount carries over in what you get. The additional space in the 2020 Dodge Charger is one of the areas where it successfully stands out against the Challenger. While both the cars seat five passengers, rear-seat passengers can feel cramped in the Challenger while the Charger comes with sufficient legroom, alongside an additional full-sized door that rear-seat passengers can use to get in and out of the car comfortable.

Both the 2020 Dodge Charger and the Dodge Challenger have similar fuel economies, and have an MPG of 19 within the city and 30 on the highway. The Dodge Charger has 292 Horsepower and provides 262 lb-ft of torque in the base level, against the Challenger's slightly better 303 Horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque.

Apple CarPlay: Everything We Know

 
Apple CarPlay enables drivers to perform all phone-related actions without letting them touch the device and distracting them from the road. Here's what we know about it.

CARPLAY COMPATIBILITY
CarPlay is compatible with all iPhone models starting with version 5. The iPhone must be based on iOS7.1 or a more recent version to be compatible with CarPlay.

In some cars, wireless CarPlay can be used. In models that do not support wireless CarPlay, however, the technology works with users connecting their iPhone physically using Apple's lightening connector.

CarPlay is compatible with a wide range of models that have been in the market since 2015. From basic offerings such as the Chevrolet Spark to high-end models by Ford, Volvo, BMW, and Honda, a wide range of automobiles support CarPlay.

CarPlay is available as a standard feature in some models, while others give it as an aftermarket addition.

CARPLAY FEATURES
  • CarPlay can be used to access all the information on your iPhone, from contacts to music playlists and calendar events.
  • The technology employs Apple's Siri to facilitate voice support. As a result, CarPlay makes the iPhone experience hands-free for drivers.
  • CarPlay can be controlled through your car's voice controls, touchscreen, as well as physical controls such as knobs and buttons.
  • Apple Music gives you access to millions of songs. It is available with an engaging interface via CarPlay.
  • With Apple Maps, you get a better view of your route on your dashboard. There are other features that facilitate better location search and clear route planning, including at intersections. Another amazing feature of CarPlay is that it supports Google Maps.
  • Apple releases new updates for CarPlay to improve the user experience. Updates are generally aimed at providing better compatibility and enhanced features.
iOS 13, the latest update, for example, offers a revamped dashboard. Apple claims that CarPlay is now compatible with 90% of new cars in the USA with this latest update. iOS13 also offers better app view and navigation, a dedicated Siri screen, and increased compatibility of Siri with non-iOS apps and technologies.

With CarPlay, you can do everything that you would want to do with your iPhone while driving, but without putting your life at risk.

Whether you are looking for cars with in-built CarPlay or wish to integrate CarPlay into your car's entertainment system, we can help you. We are an authorized auto service in Tallassee, AL. If you are in or around Auburn, Montgomery, or Wetumpka, our garage is only a short drive away, so visit us for more information.

Purchasing a Vehicle Car: The Beginner's Guide

 
If the high prices of new cars are putting you off, don't worry, because you can easily save money by purchasing a used model. Read on to learn how you can save serious money.

BEST TIME TO PURCHASE YOUR USED VEHICLE
The best time to shop for your preowned vehicle is when dealerships are holding a sales event, which is when they are ready to offer huge discounts. At such times, the dealership must also handle a large inventory of cars. 

So, if you make your purchase on important days, like Independence Day or Memorial Day, or when end-of-year models are available, you can buy a used vehicle at a lower price. You can be sure that dealerships would be ready to offload their used four-wheeler, and you may capitalize on that by striking a bargain.

BEST PLACES TO BUY
Ideally, you should shop at a franchised car dealership that stocks certified pre-owned vehicles. If your budget is low, you may need to hound for non-certified vehicles, but they would probably give a higher mileage with a dire need for frequent maintenance. You should avoid buying from an independent car lot since it won't have quality vehicles for sale either.

AGE AND TYPE OF VEHICLE
You should also know what to look for in a used car. First off, you need to buy a vehicle that fits your needs. Next, you must decide how old the model should be. Older variants are cheaper but are also bound to have issues. So, buy one only if it's in good condition.

PRICE SHOULD BE RIGHT
Once you find a satisfactory car, ensure that it' priced right. Be sure to run a comparison to know what its true value is. You should also check the vehicle's history for an idea about whether it's rusted or worn out.

TEST DRIVE
Before purchasing a used car, be sure to test drive it. It also makes sense to bring a mechanic along for insights about its condition. Finally, make sure you buy the used car with confidence. The more you know about the do's and don'ts, the easier it becomes to get the best deal.

Now that you know how to purchase a used car, go ahead and explore the nearest dealerships in Tallassee, AL, serving Montgomery, Auburn, and Weptumka too.
======================================
Get the Most out of Your Test Drive!
 A test drive is more than just a part of vehicle purchase process. It can help you understand the abilities of the vehicle and discover whether or not it would be a perfect fit for your lifestyle. You may be surprised at the facts that a few minutes of test driving a vehicle can reveal.

Here are a few ways to make your test drive worthy:

START WITH AN OPEN MIND
You may have chosen to test drive a car of a particular model based on the feedback of people you trust, or following opinions on review websites, or based on a salesman's pitch. While such feedback may be useful, avoid sticking to them rigidly.

The experience shared through feedback is that of other people. Since your vehicle needs are different, you need to rely on your own experience to form a first-hand opinion of a prospective model.

You'll be able to assess a vehicle's suitability to your needs better with an open mind.

REPLICATE YOUR LIFESTYLE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE ON A TEST DRIVE
Understand your lifestyle needs. Go for vehicle models with features that meet these needs. For example, if you go on weekly family camping trips, then you would need a vehicle with good storage space, interiors spacious enough to accommodate a family, and extra safety features if there are kids and pets involved.

Replicate a camping trip on a test drive to get a better idea of the vehicle. You could bring luggage, camping equipment such as tents, sleeping bags, camp tables and chairs, and tripods. You'll get to know if the vehicle can safely accommodate such items.

Even if you are going to use the vehicle for commute alone, bringing along a couple of water bottles, and your laptop bag or briefcase, can help assess the vehicle.

BRING A TRUSTED FRIEND ALONG
A friend, preferably one that knows more about cars and vehicles than you, on your test drive. While you assess the car for its legroom, comfort of driving, and features such as GPS, navigation, and entertainment system, your friend can give you a passenger's perspective of the drive.

Consider your friend's perspective regarding other interior features such as air-conditioning, window and door locks, vehicle performance, and general smoothness of the drive.

Given your investment on a vehicle, it is prudent to get to know it better. Plan a well-thought-out test drive so that you get the best value on your investment.
Whether you want to know more about the features of a particular model or want to test drive a vehicle, visit us. As authorized dealers, we provide the best service and expert tips to make the best of your test drive.

We are based in Tallassee, AL, which would be just a brief drive if you are in Auburn, Wetumpka, or Montgomery.

Tips on Owning a Lifted Truck

 

If you wish to own a lifted truck, you can buy one from our dealership in Tallassee, AL. We serve patrons from the neighboring cities of Montgomery, Auburn, and Weptumka as well. However, before you purchase a lifted truck, there are some things you should know.

WHAT IS A LIFTED TRUCK?
A lifted truck is specially designed for off-roading and other such grueling vehicular activities. It is modified to lift its wheels off the ground to minimize collisions with the terrain or ground-level objects in its way. A lifted truck is a rare vehicle, and it can be challenging to pick out a lifted truck from the options available. 

WHAT TO LOOK FOR
  • Brakes and Tires - Lifted trucks allow for more room for larger tires to be installed, which provide better grip in off-roading situations. The larger the wheels, the more easily you can drive through rocky terrain without harming your truck's body. However, when you buy a lifted truck or spend on a lift kit to have your automobile modified, be sure to change the brakes as well. Larger tires need larger brakes; otherwise, you will find it next to impossible to brake your vehicle with those massive tires.

  • Level of Prior Usage - Most lifted trucks are bought pre-used. So, you will want to check the truck for any telling mud tracks that can help you guess how much use the vehicle has endured. Check the lifted truck's bearing, half shafts, U-joints, and idler arms. Other things you should check for are - lift blocks on the rear axle, fluids, and whether the anti-freeze has any oil. 

  • Driveability - You will want to take your preferred lift truck for a spin around some rugged terrain before deciding to own it. Notice if there are any leaks, weird noises, and overall, how easily the vehicle allows itself to be steered.

HOW SHOULD YOU GO ABOUT BUYING A LIFTED TRUCK
Lifted truck enthusiasts can either buy a pre-used lifted truck that has already been modified or choose to have it changed themselves using a lift kit. The amount of expense you are willing to incur will determine your choice. If you are short on budget, a pre-used lifted truck is a better option than having to shell out the added cost of a truck lift kit.

5 Ways to Be a Better Driver

 

There are no fixed rules that make you a competent driver. Anyone who wants to see safer roads in their city should make a conscious effort to improve their driving. With just a few adjustments with the way you drive, you can become much better behind the wheel.

RELAX YOUR MUSCLES
Even though driving instructors teach you to place your hand at the 10 and 2 positions when learning how to drive, keeping your hands there can cause you more harm. Your hands stiffen at this position, making it impossible for you to react instinctively. Further, this position also impedes your airbags from coming out. You should experiment with a few positions to find the one that works the best for you.

STAY CALM
Driving often presents you with difficult situations. Do not get angry or carried away in the heat of the moment. Road rage is a common issue that most drivers go through. Remind yourself not to engage with instigators.

ASSUME NO ONE KNOWS HOW TO USE THE ROAD
The best way you can keep yourself safe on the road is by assuming that you're the only one armed with the ability to drive. You will instinctively become more aware of your surroundings. While it's more comforting to think that other people are as safe as you on the streets, you should put more faith in your driving skills, and not the judgment of others.

PROGRESSIVE BRAKING
Practice the art of progressive braking- slight brake, increased pressure, then come to a stop. This allows motorists behind you to adjust their actions accordingly. Also, sudden braking depletes the life of your vehicle and wastes fuel, making you take more trips to the gas station and mechanic.

STAY ALERT ON THE ROAD
Do not drive when sleepy. Drowsy driving is regarded just as bad as drunk driving, if not worse. Keep your mobile phone away, and do not toggle with the touchscreen system. A few small steps go a long way in ensuring that the roads are safer for you and for other drivers who may have interactions with you.

While driving is not a difficult task in itself, bettering and improving the way you handle your vehicle essential for your safety. Learn a few tips and tricks on how to become a better driver in Montgomery, Auburn, and Weptumka at Tallassee CJD in Tallassee, AL.

What's the Difference: AWD vs 4WD

 

First-time car buyers must examine a ton of different facilities and specifications before they can finalize their purchase. One of those specs you will have to choose between is - AWD (all-wheel-drive) or 4WD (four-wheel-drive). Here, we describe the two and explain what makes this a consideration worth thinking over.  

If you're stuck between AWD and 4WD cars in Montgomery, Auburn, or Weptumka, you can always seek help from us at Tallassee CJD in Tallassee, AL. 

WHAT IS ALL-WHEEL-DRIVE? (AWD)
AWD is a comparatively recent motor vehicle offering. However, today, you could find it anywhere, from a racecar to your mid-level sedan or crossover-SUV. Unlike 4WD, the AWD facility on vehicles distributes the power sent to each wheel. In addition, AWD is completely automated. 

AWD is always active in an AWD-enabled vehicle and does not need any input from the driver. If the car registers a loss of traction in the rear wheels, power will be transferred to the front wheels and vice versa. The AWD facility also helps improve upon fuel economy and stability while driving under different weather conditions. 

WHAT IS FOUR-WHEEL-DRIVE? (4WD)
Four-wheel-drives are a constant fixture on the more rugged vehicular types, such as SUVs and pickup trucks. So, it wouldn't be uncommon to find your Jeep or Land Cruiser installed with 4WD. 

4WD vehicles usually have the engine output shared equally amongst all four wheels, so power delivery is not controlled between wheels and axles. This uniform channeling to each wheel helps the driver maneuver through low traction and other challenging driving conditions. 
However, 4WD models can prove quite problematic when driving down busy city streets. 

They tend to add unnecessary weight and complexity on paved roads. Some vehicles may grant you the option to switch off the 4WD mode when you wish, thereby improving the overall driveability and fuel economy.

WHICH SHOULD YOU PICK?
A roadie with a penchant for adventure will appreciate the off-roading capabilities provided by 4WD variants. However, if you're simply looking to buy a means of transport to drive you back and forth from home and work, perhaps an AWD vehicle will cater to your needs the best.

Child Safety Features on the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica


Chrysler takes extra care of passengers riding in their cars and ensures that they are protected at all times. As one of the most popular family vehicles across the world, the Pacifica has been loaded with child safety features to ensure the best protection for your little ones. Here, we take a deeper look at some of these highlights:

  1. Electronic Stability Control - Helps improve the stability of your car and reduces the extent of traction faced while in operation. This ensures a smoother ride for your child and better protection for the rear and passenger seat occupants in case of an unfortunate accident. 
  2. Side Impact Beams - Beams present on the side of the door ensure that in case of a collision, the maximum impact is absorbed by your Chrysler. This feature promises that no extensive harm is caused to your loves ones in case of an unforeseen mishap. 
  3. Driver and Passenger Knee Airbag - An extra air bag is present not only for the driver but also for the other passengers. This helps cushion any bad falls or accidents and allows maximum protection during an impact. 
  4. Rear Child Safety Locks - This system allows you to put a lock on the rear doors of your vehicle, which will only allow them to open from the outside and not inside. This prevents any dangerous circumstances from arising in case a child or children are seated by themselves in the rear seats. 
  5. Height Adjustable Shoulder Belts - It is commonly observed that a toddler gets badly injured during a mishap even though he/she happened to be wearing a child belt. The reason behind this is that the belt might have been too large for his/her size. For this reason, there are height adjustable belts incorporated in the Pacifica, which will adjust to your kid's height, thereby providing him/her with the best protection for the drive. 
Eager to get a look at the brand new 2020 Chrysler Pacifica? Take a short drive to Tallassee CJD in Tallassee, AL. We're only a short commute away from Montgomery, Auburn, and Weptumka, so don't miss out.

How to Program a Jeep Garage Door Opener

 

Jeep is one of the newest companies in the ever-growing list of manufacturers that have incorporated the Homelink system in their cars. The HomeLink system reduces the work associated with parking your vehicle in a garage by enabling you to open and close your garage door with just a click of a button. 

What if my Jeep vehicle has pre-existing data from its previous owners?

If your Jeep has pre-existing data, it is entirely possible to delete this information. This can be done by pressing the third and first buttons of the Homelink system simultaneously. 

The electronic vehicle information center (EVIC) of your Jeep should display the message "Clearing Channels." If you do not wish to erase this data, the Jeep Homelink system permits you to store it for up to three garage doors. 

How do I program my old garage door opener to this Homelink system? 

Take the old garage door opener and keep it 2-3 inches away from the HomeLink system when you're programming your JEEP vehicle. Press the button of your former garage opener and the Homelink button of your choice simultaneously. While you are doing this, the electronic vehicle information center should display the message "Training." You can stop holding the buttons down once it shows "Trained" with a beep. 

Why is my EVIC not showing Trained? What should I do now?

If the "training" does not change to "trained," this signifies that your garage door has additional security in place. Proceed to your garage entrance and manually push the "learn" button or "smart" button, depending on which one's near your garage door motor. Then, run back to your car within 30 seconds and press the HomeLink button that you prefer to program inside the Jeep. Keep the button down until you hear a beep and leave. Now, the EVIP should automatically display "Trained." 

I tried the last step but remained unsuccessful. Why?

A few cars require several tries for the programming to be successful. Repeat the last step two to three times until the entire sequence completes appropriately and the EVIC reads "Trained." 

Have any doubts about the Jeep Homelink system?  Visit us at Tallassee CJD in Tallassee, AL, for more information.

What Should a Basic Car Service Include?

 

A basic car service is essential every six months or every 6,000 miles. A regular basic service is recommended to increase the longevity of your vehicle's components and to keep the car running smoothly.

A basic service, also called the interim service, usually includes the following:

OIL CHANGE
Oil keeps the components of the engine lubricated. As a result, all of them work together without getting overheated, which leads to smooth functioning.

Over time, engine oil breaks down, thereby turning to sludge, an impurity that reduces the efficiency of oil to act as a lubricant. The engine oil then becomes less efficient compared to earlier when it comes to absorbing the heat caused by friction.

It is crucial to change the engine oil before the impure fluid leads to serious engine problems. A typical frequency of oil top-offs is every 5,000 miles. This can vary depending on how old your engine is and your driving behavior. Check your manufacturer's manual for an accurate figure.

OIL FILTER CHANGE
The purpose of an oil filter is to block contaminants and permit only pure oil to pass through. These foreign intruders include dirt, dust, and sludge. The filter is only efficient as long as it is able to filter all contaminants and hold them.

Over time, the filter can get clogged by contaminants. So, the filter material can give away and send all filtered contaminants to the engine oil. Such contaminant-laden oil causes early engine wear, decreases engine performance, and leads to severe issues.

Changing the oil filter every time you get the oil replenished is therefore a recommended practice.

An inspection of major car components

This includes an inspection of the following:

Battery, terminals, and cables
Seatbelts
Automatic transmission fluid and power steering fluid
Checking if the dashboard indicator light is on, and, if yes, the reason behind it
All vehicle lights
Hoses
Exhaust system
Windshield washer fluid
Checking each tire for wear and the right pressure level
Tire rotation

Jeep Wagoneer: What to Expect

 
If you are a resident of Montgomery, Auburn, and Weptumka, you should know that many car buyers are waiting to see the all-new Jeep Wagoneer in their garage. Larger families who always fancied the Jeep lifestyle were disappointed after the discontinuation of the Jeep Commander. But the Jeep Wagoneer is there to bring back their good-old days.

Available in two models, namely Jeep Wagoneer and Jeep Grand Wagoneer, you can expect to see the following in this Jeep creation:

1. ENGINE
For the new Jeep Wagoneer, the 3.6-liter V-6 with the hybrid system will be the base engine. The slightly more powerful 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 engine will be offered in this Jeep version too. There's also a chance that the carmaker would revise the diesel 3.0-liter V-6. You can expect every Wagoneer to come with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. Also, every model will be available with rear- or all-wheel-drive and Jeep's off-road-ready equipment.

2. INTERIOR AND INFOTAINMENT
Wagoneer models have three rows of seats. You can expect the Grand Wagoneer to be the larger model of the two that offers more cargo room. The infotainment system of the Jeep Wagoneer would include a large touchscreen, probably with some easy-to-use buttons and knobs. Also, there will be smartphone integration of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Likewise, a Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless phone charging, and at least one upgradable audio system will be available as standard or optional.

3. SAFETY TECHNOLOGY
You can expect both body styles of the Jeep Wagoneer to provide a range of standard and optional driver-assistance technology. These include adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, automated emergency braking, and more. 

However, till now, neither the Wagoneer nor the Grand Wagoneer have been crash-tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) or National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

4. FUEL ECONOMY
The rear-drive V-6-powered Jeeps earn around 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The V-8 version is expected to be somewhere around 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. However, the diesel V-6 might turn out the most efficient, offering up to 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.

Contact our dealership if you wish to know more about the all-new Jeep Wagoneer in Montgomery, Auburn, and Weptumka.

Comparing 2019 Dodge Charger and 2019 Chrysler 300

 
Sedans have been on the top levels of the automobile segment for a while now. However, gone are the days when car buyers would invest in a performance car and sacrifice roominess or comfort. 

If you are a resident of Montgomery, Auburn, and Weptumka, you will find two options: the 2019 Dodge Chrysler 300 and the 2019 Dodge Challenger. Both these cars offer powerful engine options, accommodate five people, provide plenty of cargo space, and have four doors. 

But you may be wondering which of these two sedans is a better investment. Let's make a quick comparison here: 

1. INTERIOR

While the rear-seat roominess and luxurious interior options are advantageous for the 2019 Chrysler 300, the 2019 Dodge Charger is known for its sportier touches.

2. EXTERIOR
Since the 2019 Chrysler 300 and 2019 Dodge Charger ride on the same platform, they are close to each other in size. Both cars measure 75 inches in width and ride on a standard 120.2-inch wheelbase. However, the Dodge Charger Hellcat comes with a 0.2-inch longer wheelbase. 

The base Chrysler 300 measures 198.6 inches long, while the size of Charger lies between 198.4 and 200.8 inches in length. The exterior of the 2019 Chrysler 200 is classy and luxurious, while that of the 2019 Charger 300 is sharper and more muscular.

3. PERFORMANCE
The Chrysler 300 and Charger come with 3.6-liter and 5.7-liter engine options. The 2019 Chrysler 300 reaches 60 mph in 6.3 seconds with its V-6 and in 5.3 seconds with the Hemi V-8. On the other hand, the Dodge Charger V-6 hits 60 mph in 6.2 seconds, while the R/T's 5.7-liter Hemi does the same in 5.1 seconds. 

However, the Dodge Charger stands out with its 485-horsepower 6.4-liter and the 707-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter engine. The 2019 Chrysler 300 is preferred for its combination of class and power, while the 2019 Charger is known for its neck-snapping acceleration.
