For families in New York a small car is often not an option. Instead the idea of a van or an SUV is vital to consider. When you go in for a car leasing deal on a larger car you have to consider a lot of things.
When the safety of your family is involved the most important thing is the safety of your vehicle. For that purpose there is not a lot of cars on the market that are better than the 2014 Chrysler Town and Country Touring. The overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is a four out of five stars after extensive crash tests with this model. For further safety the Town and Country comes standard with a rear-view backup camera.
For families the benefits of a big car like the Touring are obvious. The roominess will allow families to make the many stops that are required for parents of busy kids. Whether you are heading to soccer practice or the mall you can load the kids up safely into the car.
Our Brooklyn car dealership is known for offering great deals on some of the best cars around. This month we are thrilled to highlight the 2014 Chrysler Town and Country.
Whether you are a brand new driver getting on the road for the first time or a long time New York motorist coming back to Wheels to Lease for yet another car leasing deal, there are things you should consider to extend the life of your car and preserve the terms of your warranty. One of the main considerations is keeping a close watch on your car’s tires. In spite of their importance tires are often overlooked by drivers putting the driver, his or her passengers, and everyone on and off the road in danger.
Tire pressure changes as the weather changes, so checking the pressure on your tires is particularly important as temperatures skyrocket. Approximately one to two pounds per square inch of air is lost with every 10 degree increase in temperature. While you might still be driving on an under-inflated tire the end results can be costly. As the pressure is displaced to the sides of the tire you risk blowing the tire out.
When you check the pressure on your car’s tires it is also strongly suggested that you check the pressure on your spare tire. Our Brooklyn car dealership is eager to do anything and everything we can to help you keep your car running smoothly and safely all summer long.
As part of our ongoing efforts to make New York motorists more aware and safer we thought we would highlight an important necessity for sunny summer driving. With the bright glare of the sun blazing into your car’s windows seeing can become incredibly difficult. Of course as soon as your car hits the streets of NYC it is your responsibility to see everything in your pathway. As a result it is vital that all drivers have a pair of sunglasses handy. This is no joke. The amount of accidents that happen each and every year because a glare temporarily left a driver unable to see is difficult to calculate but it does pose a very real risk. If you plan on taking your Brooklyn car on the road this summer, or really any time of the year, a pair of even very inexpensive sunglasses can be a life saver. For drivers who wear glasses the need for both sunglasses as well as prescription glasses is vital. There are transition lenses and clip on sunglasses attachments if need be. When you buy a new car or indulge in a lease agreement it is important that you have safety in mind. Get a pair of sunglasses with your new set of wheels.
For many customers of our car dealership in New York the summer is a time to get away from the city and head to the beach. That said, there can be a little bit of a bad reputation when it comes to conveniently located New York area beaches. Luckily we have done a little looking and found some great beaches that you can head to in your new Acura or other car and still be back in Manhattan by happy hour.
- Coney Island: If you live here and you have never been it is worth it. Might not be the prettiest beach you have ever been to but with the boardwalk, the rides, and the stellar people watching it is a great place to visit.
- Fort Tilden: Much quieter than Coney Island this Rockaways gem has no lifeguard so swimming is prohibited, that said its sleepy setting means you can have tons of space to relax.
- Jacob Riis Park: Another quiet option with a little more safety for your swimming pleasure. Bring snacks because there is not much to eat out there.
- Midland Beach: Is one of the best spots for relaxation in Staten Island. It is a stellar spot for a summer day and it’s nearby one of the borough’s incredible Ralph’s Italian Ice stand.
When you lease a car it can very easily become an extension of your home. You spend a lot of time in there and in all of that traveling back and forth to this and that event or activity things can get pretty grimy. The interior of your car can end up housing a lot of stuff and eventually can get a little dirty. Getting the inside clean can seem more difficult than the outside.
The best thing to have available is a vacuum. Of course in New York having a vacuum that you can plug in and carry out to your car is not as easy as in the suburbs. A dust buster can be an effective handheld replacement. It is important to go over the entire seat and get into the cracks and crevices others might miss.
For leather interiors there are cleaners made specifically to treat leather. If you use harsh cleaners not approved for leather use you can do significant damage to the cars interior with only a little bit of this cleaning solution. For fabric interiors there is more flexibility. Stain removers can be employed to, you guessed it, remove stains.
Feeling groggy behind the wheel can turn a normal trip to an area mall into an unexpected nightmare. Even as most American drivers understand the dangers of falling asleep behind the wheels far too many take needless risks when driving. An estimated 250,000 drivers fall asleep at the wheel each and every day. When an accident occurred this week killing at least one and endangering the lives of several(including 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan) the cause appeared to be a driver falling asleep at the wheel.
As one a leading New York car dealership we take the issues surrounding driving safety incredibly seriously. Whenever we sell or lease a car to someone we hope for only the best and safest driving conditions for them and their families.
Whether you have been driving for decades or have just hopped behind the wheel for the first time being well rested is vital. No one should be behind the wheel if they are feeling groggy, restless, or fatigued. The importance of sleep for a driver cannot be overstated. So before you drive a car off of our Brooklyn dealership‘s lot or out of your driveway make sure that you are awake, aware, alert, and ready for anything the road might present.
Sometimes we get so confident in our own driving abilities that we get loose with the rules that are so important to us. People with families discover that they have little patience when a young driver forgets to buckle his or her safety belt or check the car’s mirrors even though many of us toss off these rules ourselves.
When getting behind the wheel of a new car it is great to reconsider each and every rule we learned when we first started driving. Reaffirming the positive habits of driving when you have just invested in a new car lease deal can help to keep you driving at your safest.
When you are rolling off of the lot of our Brooklyn dealership we want you to be the safest driver on the road in New York City. It is the best thing for you, your car, and the world at large. With those safe driving habits reaffirmed you will be a better teacher to new drivers and a better citizen to everyone else on the road.
Whether you buy a new car or not take some time this weekend to consider those things your first driving teacher taught you and be the best driver you can be!
When you get behind the wheel of your new Acura, Honda or any other car sold at our Brooklyn car dealership you want to be safe. That said, you also want to have fun. Taking advantage of the agreeable terms of our car leasing deals should also be fun. You buy a new stylish car to enjoy the open road and take more than a bit of the stress out of your commutes. One great asset for a fantastic summer drive is a driving playlist. This week we have put together some of our favorite summer driving songs for New Yorkers cruising the city streets and beyond:
- Ramones “Rockaway Beach”: Heading out to the beach is one of the great benefits of having wheels. The Ramones knew what living in the city was like and they capture the joy of getting away in this tune.
- Ace Frehley “Back In the New York Groove”: This disco song from Kiss’s guitarist is a stellar driving anthem for these New York streets any time of the year.
- Madonna “Holiday”: This 80′s classic has a great driving rhythm and a catchy hook, what more do you need?
- A Tribe Called Quest “Can I Kick It?”: Sampling Lou Reed’s “Take a Walk On the Wild Side” and turning it into a feel good anthem is a neat trick!
- Frank Sinatra “The Summer Wind”: Roll down the windows in the evening and take in that breeze.
When you buy a new car the convenience can really change the way you do things. You get to places faster and more comfortably. Suddenly you have more time to take on more projects. Before you know it your car is not just a valuable asset it is an extension of your living space.
As that happens it is important to remain organized. Leaving a few things in the car for convenience can escalate to a cluttered and messy car very quickly. We have decided to provide some helpful tips to keep from cluttering your car too quickly. It will help preserve the value and protect your car lease deal over the long haul:
- Shoe Organizers: Using shoe organizers(the kind that hang in closets) is a great way to keep necessary supplies nearby without scattering them along your backseat.
- Tupperware and Shopping Bags: A tupperware container and a shopping bag can make a great waste basket for your car.
- Only Carry What You Need: If you are done with an item take it out of your car immediately. Anything less than that will end up leading to clutter.
- Maximize Trunk Space: Using dividers and other containers can help you make the most of your trunk and keep things organized.
For families having a car can feel like a necessity. Without it a normal family unit can really fly off the handle. Kids miss events parents miss important meetings and no one is happy about it. This is why so many of our customers at Wheels to Lease wind up using our incredible car leasing deals to get second, third, and even(for larger families) fourth cars.
As kids themselves start to drive it is important to have a car available to them but not at the expense of your own convenience. No one wants to be dropped off at a big business meeting by their 17 year old daughter. Instead there is often a push by parents for kids to take on the older cars while the adults get fresh models. Those new models are surprisingly affordable given the impressive financing options and variety of savings made available at our Brooklyn car dealership.
With the summer coming teenagers are going to have a lot more time on their hands. Convincing them to get a job or just get out of the house is a lot easier if you make a car available to them. This year why not check out the variety of new and used cars available at Wheels to Lease.
