New York City is beautiful in the spring. Parks are beginning to get greener, beaches are beginning to fill up, and the chimes of ice cream trucks seem to greet you every several blocks. In order to take in all of NYC this season you are going to need a speedier way to get around than your MetroCard.
Commuting via your own car is a much better deal than fighting with the perpetual work in progress known as the MTA. Instead of languishing on a subway platform you could be sunning in the park. Instead of jamming yourself onto a bus you can be cruising decidedly towards whatever your destination might be.
We have made leasing a car as easy as possible because we know that New York is better from behind the wheel. Our Brooklyn car dealership has top models that offer low gas mileage and great safety features, the result is your ticket off of the subway and into any location you plan on enjoying this spring.
These days the world is more about cultivating your own choices of entertainment than ever before. For some however that freedom of choice has not yet landed on the dashboard of their cars. That is obviously fine if your choice is to listen to the terrestrial radio stations that have always been available, but seem people want something more.
Luckily most new models of cars come with a variety of audio entertainment options. Everything from cables that can attach your smartphone’s audio right into your car stereo to satellite radio that expands the options from the dozen or so easily available stations via antenna to a vast specialized world of music, news, and more. These days there is no reason to get locked into the short playlists that populate all of the stations on your radio dial. Instead you can find the perfect soundtrack to your trip, no matter where you are headed.
If you are interested in expanding the entertainment options in your vehicle by trading up and investing in a new car lease our Brooklyn car dealership can help. The experts on our lot are ready to guide you into a safe, energy efficient, and entertaining new car.
During the winter icy conditions and consistent snow makes obeying speed limits easier. As things warm up it is important to stay aware of your speed. While the roads might be less treacherous the laws have not changed. Speed limits on most New York City streets now sit at 25 miles per hour. Highways and other major roads have higher speed limits but in a number of areas you should be sure to adhere to 25 mph.
The rush of spring does not have to result in you rushing. Instead be sure to keep up your safe driving habits from when the roads were slick with ice. Doing so will help you assure the safety of yourself, your passengers, and everyone else on the road. This is not to say that you should always drive slower. In fact in some cases driving below the speed limit can be as dangerous or more so than driving too fast.

The fuel efficiency of newer models of cars can be downright shocking to folks used to gas guzzling models. Suddenly that new car lease might just save you and your family money. Even as gas prices have come down the amount of gas needed for almost every car on our lot has also come down. It is a perfect opportunity to drive!

Focus. It is easier said than done, especially in our busy and technologically crowded modern lives. When driving your focus is even more important, yet for many it seems to be one of the times when distractions are most prevalent.
Between your phone, passengers, the radio, nearby beverages or snacks, and the rest of vast unpredictable world in and around your car, there is a lot that can take your mind off of driving and your eyes off the road. In just a split second of distraction your whole life can change drastically in an accident. Here are some tips from your local Brooklyn car dealership to avoid distractions:
- Store Distractions Out of Site: Putting your phone in the glove compartment is a great way to avoid distraction. Items that might shift around in the car’s cabin should be stashed in the trunk.
- Make Adjustments Before You Embark: Adjust your mirrors, find your radio station, get to a comfortable temperature, and then drive. These things can be handled before you start driving. Do that!
- Pull Over for Your Passengers: If passengers need your attention pull over! Address what needs to be addressed, then head back out on the road!
If you cannot drive without any distractions wait!

Drive enough and you will notice it everywhere. One of the biggest dangers to drivers, pedestrians, and anyone or anything that lives in proximity to traffic are tires that are improperly deflated. For every blowout that happens due to hitting something that ruptures your tire, there are several that could have been easily avoided by simply properly inflating your tires.
In and around our Brooklyn car dealership maintaining proper tire pressure is something we pride ourselves on. Knowing that we will be heading out on test drives with customers makes us extra vigilant about keeping things safe. Still, once a a car lease deal is signed it is on the owner to keep things as safe as possible.
Experts recommend that every driver checks their car’s tire pressure at least once a week. This is easiest to do if you spring for your very own pressure gauge. The importance of proper tire inflation is vital across the board but it is particularly an issue among people driving larger cars. No matter what you drive, keep those tires right and drive safely!
As a Brooklyn car dealership with a solid reputation in a fantastic community we see our fair share of repeat customers. We love seeing families grow and young kids become young drivers themselves. Each car sale is important to us but the ones that go to new drivers feel so much more important. When these kids get a car with great safety features our whole staff feels better about them hitting the road.
Teaching kids the right way to drive is something everyone is concerned with. Cars, if used incorrectly, can be dangerous. Luckily our staff gets a chance to see the quality education these young drivers are receiving from family members, friends, and driving classes. That is because we think a test drive is vital for anyone getting behind a new wheel, especially a young driver.
Parents starting to consider getting a car for their son or daughter’s forthcoming license are encouraged to stop by and check out our whole stock of fantastic cars!
The cold can make so many of us prone to simply whiling away hours in our homes. The bite of a New York City winter leaves a sting and simply taking a stroll to the supermarket or the movies can feel like a battle against the elements. As a result many of us spend the winter buried in trash television and ordering takeout. Nothing wrong with either of those things in moderation but New York offers great culture and home cooking is more nutritious and affordable than takeout.
Owning a car in New York can make experiencing the city and feeding yourself appropriately so much easier as the cold weather settles in. These when you buy a new car there is a heating system, obviously, but there is also warming seats. In fact, you might find yourself more cozy in your car than in an under heated loft apartment.
Do not give up on the things you love to do and eat this winter. Instead visit our dealership to find the kind of affordable car lease deals that make owning having a car in New York easier than it has ever been.
