The Future Looks Green

Look around U.S. streets and freeways today and you’ll see a sprinkling of green vehicles nearly everywhere.

This year marks the 15th anniversary of the U.S. debut of the Toyota Prius. Initially, the car’s unfamiliar hybrid technology puzzled mainstream consumers, but soon found popularity with early adopters ranging from environmentalists to the Hollywood elite. A decade and a half later, this hybrid pioneer has proven that alternative fuel vehicles are more than just a niche fad, carving a path for other eco-friendly vehicles including plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and pure electric (EV) models.

Whats_with_Changing_Car_Prices

We want to empower consumers with the information they need to feel confident throughout the entire car-buying process.

At the heart of this mission are Certified Dealers, who are committed to a faster, easier buying experience.

One part of the process you may be wondering about is the tendency for car prices to change. The simple answer is supply and demand.

The base price or manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) of a particular car does not fluctuate much. But to meet or drive changes in demand, manufacturers often offer incentives such as cash back or bonus cash. Dealers have the same opportunities to offer incentives based on their stock, which often happens towards the end of the month.

2016_Cadillac_CTS

Newton Was Wrong. The World Now Revolves Around You.

Car: 2016 Cadillac CTS-V
Date: July 30, 2015
Location: Road America, Wisconsin
Event: Press Demo
Stretch: A country road ride ‘n’ drive plus a two-lap, four-mile, flat out dash.

They say that time stands still on the edge of a black hole, nature’s most awesome phenomenon. You could be hurtling towards its center at 186,000 miles a second and all would be calm within the interior of your Interstellar yacht. Pass the tea, Alfred. Back here on earth, however, we’ll happily strap ourselves into Cadillac’s newest generation CTS-V—a sleek beast of a car sporting all the modern amenities of a luxury sedan combined with the 200-mph off-the-line athleticism of a European supercar. A true rival to the BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, the CTS-V meets or beats the performance stats of both (including other contenders). As the outside world fades into a maelstrom of landscape and pavement, the CTS-V’s space-aged, leather-laden interior keeps it all rather civil, while its 640hp-supercharged motor delivers 1+ g cornering loads with utter confidence. Whether you’re heading for the hills, a trip to the mall, or a night on the town, the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V delivers the goods in one pleasantly euphoric blur. Read More…

To_Lease_or_Not_To_Lease

The decision to buy or lease can be a biggie.

A lease is a long-term rental, a car you’ll have to give back to the dealer at some point. A purchase is, well, yours for the long haul. Often your choice will come down to price.

If you want a nicer car but aren’t in the position to make high payments, a lease is the way to go. If you feel the value of ownership outweighs higher monthly payments, a purchase is the right fit.

Of course, if it were as simple as that the guide would just end here. Good thing we’ve also got incentives, monthly payments, insurance, and customization to cover. Read More…
