The “Gateway Benz” Targets a New Type of Mercedes Customer
Monday, December 23rd, 2013

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!-Purple Christmas bulb

For some, the $30,000 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 may be a car that has cheapened the luxury brand, but Mercedes sees it differently. This fuel-efficient car was designed for a younger crowd, who will, hopefully, grow into diehard Mercedes fans.
Younger purchasers aren’t just attracted to the relatively low price tag; the sleek, coupe-like car is equipped with a powerful, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Autoweek reports that Mercedes sees the CLA becoming its number one conquest vehicle. Not only could its marketable design help compete with other luxury brands, like BMW and Audi, but the reduced price could attract consumers of traditional, midsize sedans, like Ford and Nissan.

German-car manufacturing giant BMW is thinking forward with the introduction of its new, carbon fiber i3. It hit consumer markets on Nov. 16 in Germany and will enter showrooms across the United States in the beginning of 2014.
If you walk into the BMW factory in Washington State today, there are thousands of fine, white threads laced around an almost mile-long course. These strands are stretched, toasted and then singed black to create carbon fiber. This hair-thin material is light yet tougher than steel, enhancing both safety and vehicle longevity.

License plate image-California is a trend setter in automotive sales.

The automotive industry has seen a number of changes in the past decade. Among the most pronounced is the boom in safety-feature popularity.
Modern drivers, it seems, care just as much about safety as they do about luxury add-ons. Demand has spiked for safety equipment, such as side-curtain airbags, back-up cameras and electronic-stability control.

As other car manufacturers raced to be the first to come out with a 100 percent electric car, one manufacturer, BMW, was notably absent from the fray.

Changing Affiliations‏
Friday, November 15th, 2013

The times they are a changin’….
The year end will be upon us soon and we are reviewing what vendors work for us to help bring you the best value possible. In looking at those expenses, we have made the decision to terminate our affiliation with AAA. We know that to many people the AAA sign is one that conveys trust. In being an “Approved Auto Repair” for AAA, they come in and inspect our licenses and be sure that we keep a minimum amount of insurance. We were hoping that by being part of their program (which was expensive to us) it would bring us more clients, but it did not.

Several of the world’s top car manufacturers, including Toyota, BMW and Mercedes, have set their sights on the next big thing for the auto industry:  hydrogen.

Perea (D-Fresno) that would use existing fees on motor vehicles to fund the creation of 100 new, public hydrogen-fueling stations.
