Build Some Trust in your Dealership Today

A bodyshop could make this car look brand new. Wouldn't you like to know where this car has really been?

Alright, let’s face it when a customer is thinking about buying a used car they are always a bit skeptical of the condition of the vehicle. Car buyers never fully trust everything a car salesman tells them. In order to overcome this hurdle a dealership needs to establish a customer dealership relationship based on trust. One of the best ways to build confidence in your dealership and the vehicles is providing your customers with an AutoCheck vehicle history report. Not only do these reports provide confidence; they also can be used as a great selling tool. By using a reliable third party report you are setting the foundation of reliability and honesty. And who wouldn’t want to buy a car from that type of dealership?

On a side note, I am so curious as to what car that is that David is in. Does anyone know?

If you are going to drive in New York think twice!

This year a study was done by Autovantage, an independent research company, to see which cities hosted the least and most courteous drivers. Autovantage interviewed 2,500 drivers from large metropolitan areas. The researchers’ found that the discourteous drivers displayed more aggressive behaviors, such as, tailgating and road rage. In contrast, the more courteous drivers exhibited more forgiveness to others bad driving behaviors.  Below are the results from Autovantage’s 2009 study.

Fun Friday- Elderly Lady Crossing the Street

Alright, we all know if we see an elderly lady crossing the street that it is only right to help her out. One should be chivalrous and do what they can to help her safely make it across. And this is usually how the story goes.

But what happens when a car stopped at the cross-walk honks its horn at the old lady to hurry up and cross the street? Check out this video and find out for yourself:-)
