Change is something that is critical to your business. If you’re not adapting to the change around you, you’re bound to fall behind the ranks of your competitors!

Join Paul and Ashley on this week’s Think Tank Tuesday as they give you tips and tricks on how to conquer your fear of change in the workplace and in your personal life.…

Customer Focus

Today’s dealerships spend tens of thousands of dollars every month to reach new customers and get them inside the dealership doors. A large amount of these funds are spent on newspapers that end up as a floor mat the next day for a birdcage. I’ve seen thousands of dollars spent on service ads, that promote super low price oil changes to drive traffic that will spend nothing on suggested needs…

How much Time are You Wasting Researching Your Inventory

Based on our research, the average Internet Manager, Inventory Manager, Sales Manager, GSM, and or GM spend an hour a day checking out the competition. Sure, an hour a day doesn’t seem to be too long when it comes to understanding the current market place, but what if you have 3 sales managers, 1 Internet Manager, 1 inventory manager, 1 GSM, and 1 GM, you can see the amount of time that is spent each day adds up.

Also, you must consider the amount of information you can truly find by…

Sometimes you should say what you will not do to make a sale

I will never forget selling vehicles online in the 80's.  After three years, I had my own advertising, my own customer base, my own phone pops, set my own hours, and got paid on everything.  Although most of my inquiries began online or with a phone call, I had the highest gross average in the store.

How to Capture More Revenue Without Much Effort

One of the advantages of Pre-Paid Maintenance Programs (PPM) is that they span the generational gaps. Regardless of which generation consumers happen to be in, none of them like surprise repairs, or other expenses. That’s why dealers focus on payments – and not price – when selling cars.

FCA's plan to add stores riles dealers

Fiat Chrysler's plan to add about 380 dealerships to its U.S. network of around 2,500 stores has run into opposition from dealers who say the move is a threat to their existing businesses.

Some have complained to state authorities, two citing a proposed FCA store in the New Orleans suburb of Kenner, La., that would be built on a vacant lot hemmed in by a massive swamp on one side and Lake Pontchartrain on another. The problem, local dealers say, is that three…

Chips in the Windshield: What to Do When It Happens to You

You may not think much of a pebble or some other small piece of debris hitting your windshield. However, if it leaves a chip in the glass, it will need to be looked at and replaced as soon as possible. Here are some steps that you should you take if you notice a chip or other blemish in your windshield?Take the Car to a Repair Shop QuicklyIf you notice the chip during business hours, you should take the car to a body shop or to a glass repair service center, such as Martin Glass Co, as soon as possible. You may also be able to call for a remote glass repair service to come to your location. If you notice the chip overnight or otherwise outside of normal business hours, you may want to drop it off at a repair shop where it can be looked at first thing the next morning.Keep the Car in a Temperate EnvironmentIn the event that you are forced to keep your car overnight or for several hours before you can have it looked at, make sure to keep it in a temperate environment. Keeping it outside in the cold or in a cold garage could cause the glass to expand and contract. This may turn a small chip into a large crack. At that point, you may not be able to drive the vehicle safely.What Happens if the Glass Breaks While Driving?Typically, the glass should remain in one piece while you drive it to the repair shop. However, if the glass does break (either due to the crack getting bigger or because the incident happened while driving), the first thing that you should do is pull over to the side of the road. You should then call for either emergency help if you are hurt or call a tow truck to take to a repair shop.File an Insurance Claim to Recoup the Cost of Replacing Your WindshieldYour auto insurance policy should cover the cost of having your windshield either repaired or replaced. In some cases, the company who makes the fix will be able to work with your insurance provider to get paid for services rendered.If your windshield has chips in it, you should have the glass fixed right away. Otherwise, you could put yourself and anyone else riding in the vehicle in danger of getting hurt or worse. Most repair shops will allow you to make payments if you can't afford the cost of service when it is rendered.See More

New Safety Features in 2017 Car Models That Redefined Driving as We Know it

Just recently, devices such as the cruise control, air bags, and lap seat belts, were the trending novelties with regards to car safety features. Unfortunately, auto accidents still happen even with the presence of these high-end safety features. When involved in a car collision, consider hiring a car accident lawyer to assist with recovery of losses and with legal paperwork. Your attorney will help you discover how you can handle your car insurance company as well as gather evidence essential for your case. However, having your car equipped with automated technologies such as self-parking and autonomous cruise control mitigates the risk of being involved in fatal traffic accidents. Read on to learn about the most recent car safety features.Lane Keeping AssistBased on NHTSA's statistics, at least 37% of all road fatalities in the U.S, result from automobiles veering off the road. The primary purpose of the Lane Keeping Assist Technology is alerting the driver when the system detects a deviation of the car from the right traffic lane. Besides, this mechanism works conjointly with Radar Cruise Control, to assist drivers steer and stay on course when driving. Lane Keeping Assist system uses a camera, which identifies the lines on the different types of roads and helps keep within these lines.  Automatic ParkingParking a car remains a nerve-wracking experience for some drivers, especially when you have to squeeze into tight spots. Based on research, about 14% of all car collisions that cause damage happen in parking lots. The inclusion of rear-view cameras has enabled more drivers to park their automobiles safely. However, these rear-view cameras are not entirely reliable in preventing the occurrence of parking lot collisions. The invention of automatic parking feature has proven more efficient in improving one's safety when parking. With this feature, you only need to pull up to the vehicle in front of the open area. The car then utilizes its cameras and radar to park into the open spot. The 2017 Toyota Prius comes with Intelligent Parking Assist while the Lexus LS has a self-parking mode.   Adaptive Cruise ControlIt is a more sophisticated cruise control system, designed to control your car's speed automatically. This form of regulation is essential in maintaining a safe following distance. The mechanism makes use of special radar, usually installed at the back of a vehicle's grille. The radar works by determining the momentum and distance of the car in front of it. The adaptive cruise control is more efficient than the traditional systems, in that it regulates speed, ensuring a proper distance is maintained between vehicles in the same lane. If the lead car slows down or the radar sensor detects another obstacle, the system transmits a signal to the engine, which activates deceleration.  Electronic Stability Control (ESC)ESC is another new safety gadget, which prevents the occurrence of auto accidents by mitigating the dangers of skidding. The ESC mechanism is activated when a driver loses control. It employs a computer-controlled device to apply individual brakes and bring the vehicle back to the right course.ConclusionThe newest car safety technologies, which include adaptive cruise control and automated parking system, reduce the likelihood of traffic accidents significantly. As such, consider having your automobile installed with these cutting-edge features.See More
