Having a commercial vehicle that runs properly day in and day out, while having confidence in its ability to keep you on the road and safe is critical for your company’s success.  Whether you’re considering buying your first commercial van, work truck or cargo van, or you’re planning on adding to your already existing commercial fleet, there are many factors to consider in making sure you find a reliable one. Here are some tips for buying a great commercial vehicle.

 

Know What You Need

Unlike many standard vehicles, commercial vehicles have the added task of being one of the tools you utilize for your business. Depending on the type of work you perform in a day, your needs for your commercial vehicle can vary and understanding what that looks like before you begin shopping can help you narrow down your search. Before deciding what vehicle will do that best, it’s important to consider what are absolutes for your commercial vehicle.  Do you do need to transport a lot of people or large, heavy items often?  Will you need to tow things such as animals or a tool trailer?  Will this vehicle need to shelving to organize tools or equipment?  Does your business require refrigeration for catering or large empty cargo space for hauling goods?  Answering these questions before you begin your search can help guide you into what type of work truck, transit van, cargo van or commercial passenger van is best for your company or business.

 

Know Your Budget

If you haven’t crunched the numbers to see what kind of a budget you are working with, now would be the time to evaluate your maximum budget.  Decide if you will be buying the commercial vehicle outright or if your business will plan on financing it.  If financing a vehicle works best for your company, be sure to shop around to find the best finance rates available.  While there are dealerships like Broadmoor Motors who do not markup your interest rate to make a profit, there are many dealerships where it is common practice. Shopping ahead of time can help you find the best available rate and protect you from being blindsided from a higher rate with hidden markups.

 

 

Shop From A Trusted Dealer

Regardless if you’re planning on buying a new or used commercial vehicle, finding a trusted dealership is invaluable.  While each cargo van, work truck and commercial vehicle can vary on their specific options and usages, one thing that should not vary is the confidence you have in the dealership you’ll be buying from that they’ll be able to deliver a safe and reliable vehicle.  The most obvious place to start your shopping is with a dealership you’ve already had a positive experience working with previously.  But if you don’t have a dealership you’ve purchased a great commerical vehicle with prior, it’s important to look at online reviews from prospective dealerships to see what other people’s experiences have been. Knowing what other customers have said can help you weed out the ones with more negative reviews than positive and give you more comfortability shopping from the ones with great reviews.

 

Get A Warranty

Is it even possible to get a warranty on a commercial vehicle? It is at Broadmoor Motors! At Broadmoor Motors we believe your hard-earned money not only deserves a reliable vehicle but one that’s backed by a 30 Day Powertrain Warranty and offer additional extended warranties with none of the filler and unnecessary items that other dealerships offer.  In addition, Broadmoor Motors handles our warranties locally so you don’t have to deal with a third party company.

 

Talk To Your Accountant

Buying a work truck, transit van or commercial vehicle for your business may offer your company tax write-offs that may include the interest on payments or allow for benefits you weren’t aware of previously.  Before buying, leasing or financing a commercial vehicle, we recommend talking to your accountant to find out which works best for your specific needs.

When people discover a vehicle has been titled Theft Recovered, they often have questions on what that means for the vehicle they are considering and most importantly, they wonder… should you buy a theft recovered vehicle? Here, we’ll hit the most commonly asked questions so each individual can feel armed with facts versus rumors they’ve heard to determine for themselves if a theft recovered vehicle is right for them.

 

What is a Theft Recovered Vehicle?

There were an estimated 748,841 motor vehicles stolen in 2018 according to the FBI, which breaks down to an automobile theft occurring once every 42.2 seconds throughout the United States. With all of those vehicles being stolen, it’s estimated that approximately 60% will be recovered. Once a vehicle has been theft recovered, it may be deemed with a Theft Recovered salvage title.

 

Are all stolen vehicles given a salvaged title?

There are a few factors insurance companies use to determine if a theft recovered vehicle will be given a salvage title and the owner of the vehicle to receive a payment for the loss of their vehicle. These can include:

  • Time – Insurance companies have their own length of time that they will allow a vehicle to be searched for before deeming it a “complete loss” and issuing the owner a check and can vary from two weeks to thirty days. Based on the policy of the insurance company regarding the stolen vehicle’s title, the title could stay CLEAN or converted into a salvage title.
  • Damage – If the vehicle sustained more monetary damage to it than the vehicle is worth.
  • Location – Each state has different laws governing if a vehicle will automatically be deemed a salvage title after it has been stolen despite length of time or lack of monetary damage involved. States that issue a theft recovered vehicle a salvage title are Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma and Oregon regardless of recovery time or lack of damage.

 

Are Theft Recovered vehicles bad vehicles to purchase?

While the sound of a salvage titled vehicle brings connotations of a busted and broken vehicle to mind, the truth is a lot of these vehicles have little to no damage and lower miles. In fact, buyers can often get a newer vehicle with more options, lower miles and save thousands in the process when they purchase a theft recovered vehicle. This is due to the perceived reduction in value while there actually is none. In addition, these vehicles depreciate slower than their clean titled counterparts because the initial cost is less for a theft recovered vehicle in comparison to the exact same vehicle that has not been stolen.

 

Can Theft Recovered vehicles be insured or be financed?

A common misconception is that stolen and recovered salvage titled vehicles can not be financed like their clean title counterparts can be but that’s simply not the case. While there may be different loan to value requirements depending on your lender and your credit, it is possible to get both financing AND insurance on theft recovered vehicles.

 

Should I buy a Theft Recovered Vehicle?

While we’ve discussed the many advantages a buyer can receive from purchasing a theft recovered titled vehicle over a clean titled vehicle, there are still two common fears we hear from people… the seller won’t disclose all of the previous damage and they won’t be able to sell it when they decide to purchase another vehicle.

At Broadmoor Motors, we believe honesty is the best policy for selling any vehicle, regardless of the status of its title, and it’s important to us that we share what damage was done to the vehicle prior to repairs and in letting potential customers know that the title is a stolen recovered salvage beginning with the initial listing and when someone makes an inquiry. In addition, we want our customers to feel confident that they will be able to sell their vehicle when the time comes and that’s why we offer our buy back policy. Since we already know the history of the vehicle, and we also have the original pictures of it when it was sold to us, we are not afraid to stand behind it and will take it as a trade-in for another vehicle of your choice or just buy it back from you even if you buy elsewhere.

Michigan drivers have known for a long time that they pay the highest rates in the country for car insurance although they might not have understood exactly why. Recent legislative changes are now making cheaper rates possible for many drivers all over West Michigan but in order to know if you should take advantage of these changes, it’s important to understand how Michigan car insurance will change on July 2, 2020.

 

Why Are Michigan Rates So High?

Rates for Michigan drivers have been the highest in the USA in large part because of the mandatory insurance coverage requirement of Personal Injury Protection with unlimited medical coverage on car accident injuries. While these requirements guaranteed many health and recovery benefits to injured drivers, including lost wages, in-home nursing care and specialized medical treatments, they also came at a high cost to insurance companies. This cost was passed onto all Michigan drivers to account for those expensive losses and the problem becomes compounded when drivers drop insurance coverage because they can’t afford it.

These factors made Michigan insurance rates the most expensive in the nation and have created significant economic impacts across the state with Michiganders paying 4.8% of their income on auto insurance premiums which is double the national average of 2.4% of drivers in other states.

 

What Will Change?

 

New PIP Coverage Options

Michigan legislators and drivers have spent decades debating how to reduce the financial burden on drivers and a solution was finally signed into law last year. In doing so, they created five different PIP (Personal Injury Protection) options for drivers, allowing them to keep unlimited PIP or choose less coverage for greater discounts. The law requires insurance drivers to reduce the cost of only the PIP portion of car insurance by the following amounts until July 1, 2028.

  • Unlimited PIP Coverage (10% reduction) – covers unlimited lifetime car accident injury expenses.
  • $500,000 of PIP Coverage (20% reduction) – covers car accident injury expenses up to $500,000.
  • $250,000 of PIP Coverage (35% reduction) – covers car accident injury expenses up to $250,000.
  • $50,000 of PIP Coverage (45% reduction) – covers car accident injury expenses up to $50,000 & is the lowest option available for Medicaid recipients.
  • Out of PIP Coverage (100% reduction) – drivers can opt out of PIP coverage completely only if they have Medicare or a qualifying health insurance plan that covers car accident injuries.

Insurers with no PIP will lose accommodations for an injured person’s care, recovery or rehabilitation which includes but is not limited to:

  • Attendant care
  • Rehabilitation past the point in which further progress is no longer likely
  • Home modifications (e.g. wheelchair ramps into primary residence)
  • Auto modifications (e.g. automatic lifts to assist with entry and exit of vehicles)
  • Lost wages

 

More Required Liability Coverage

Michigan’s “no-fault” insurance helps reduce the number of lawsuits between drivers because drivers typically turn to their own insurance provider to cover expenses but they can still be sued if they cause an accident that results in another person’s serious injury or death. That’s where liability coverage comes into play and how recent changes affect it.

Before July 1, 2020: Drivers have to buy a minimum of $20,000 of coverage for one person injured or killed in an accident and $40,000 of coverage for accidents with two or more people injured or killed.

After July 1, 2020: Drivers will be offered a default minimum of $250,000 of coverage for one person injured or killed in an accident and $500,000 of coverage for accidents with two or more people injured or killed. Drivers will be allowed to request and receive reduced minimums of $50,000 and $100,000 respectively.

 

Certain Personal Information Banned From Pricing

Each state set its own rules for what information insurance companies can or can’t use when pricing auto insurance. This included what kind of car you drive, annual mileage and dozens of other potential factors such as credit history and what level of education you last completed, and insurers used this personal information to calculate how likely a driver is to file a claim. On July 1, 2020, insurers will no longer be able to use gender, marital status, occupation, education, zip code, credit score or residential status to determine your rate. They will still be allowed to use certain information such as payment history and “territories” as an alternative to zip codes.

 

Limits On Medical Billing

Health care as a whole has become more expensive in the U.S. but medical claims resulting from car crashes are especially prone to price inflation. In fact, one study in Michigan found that while auto insurers sometimes paid more than $3000 for a patient’s MRI, Medicare typically paid $500 for the exact same procedure. That’s in part because Michigan law required insurers to pay whatever is “reasonably necessary” to treat crash victims. Disputes over what’s covered and its cost often end up in court, further driving up the costs of insurance for all Michigan drivers.

But on July 1, 2021, Michigan will institute a new medical fee schedule to cap how much insurers are required to pay for medical services and treatments. The limits would phase in starting at 200%-250% of what Medicare would pay for a medical procedure. The reimbursement rate will drop to 190%-230%, depending on the type of medical facility by 2023.

 

The Good & The Bad

Lawmakers and drivers alike believe these changes can help reduce the burden of what Michigan drivers are forced to pay for their auto insurance but it’s important to fully understand the changes and risks you now face by choosing less coverage. Remember, drivers pay for PIP coverage so their own auto insurer covers their (and their passengers) injury expenses after an accident. Choosing a lower coverage limit can reduce the cost of your insurance but if you are involved in an accident, your medical expenses will be paid only up to the limit you choose. Always consult your insurance agent to see what they recommend would work best for you.

Buying a car during a global pandemic is not for everyone but for some buyers in West Michigan, it might just be a perfect time. Looking at how the coronavirus has impacted car buying experience and knowing what things to look out for can help you know what to expect when you’re shopping and help you decide if you should buy a car during COVID 19.

 

Changes In Shopping

With the governor now including some vehicle sales as critical infrastructure under “Section 9(i) For purposes of this order, critical infrastructure workers also include: Workers at motor vehicle dealerships who are necessary to facilitate remote and electronic sales or leases, or to deliver motor vehicles to customers, provided that showrooms remain closed to in-person traffic.”, those who are in need of a vehicle in the greater Grand Rapids area are able to buy one again. It will just look a little different than people have experienced in the past when purchasing a car.

Whether purchasing a new or used vehicle, showrooms opened by appointment only on May 21, giving car shoppers the ability to once again kick tires and view vehicles in person. But beginning the process online and contacting dealerships through email, live chat or phone, can help narrow down the prospective vehicles to find the one you are serious about before taking the next step of making an appointment to talk to a salesperson and take a test drive if interested. While much of this process is not necessarily different with much of the beginning steps taking place strictly online, needing to set up an appointment with a salesman before stopping in means buyers need to be much more intentional on what vehicles they are serious about before venturing out to a dealership to see it in person.

 

Better Financing

During “normal” times, the average auto interest rate is typically between 4% and 5% but with the ongoing uncertainty of coronavirus and its impacts on the economy, auto manufacturers and lenders have started offering extremely low interest rates and even offering deferred payments to help people get into a vehicle today. Something to consider is just how much that lower interest rate could save you. Let’s say you get a 7-year, $35,000 loan with a 5% interest rate. Over the course of the seven year loan, you would end up paying approximately an additional $2300 in interest than if you had secured a similar loan with a three percent interest rate. Which, in the end, means you ultimately paid $2300 more on the vehicle than you needed to if your interest rate is higher than it has to be. Tip of the day: shop your interest rate and lender just as thoroughly as you do your vehicle because it could end up greatly impacting the bottom line price of your vehicle.

 

 

Know Your Bottom Line

With more happening behind the scenes virtually and not necessarily in person as car sales have traditionally been in the past, it is even more important than ever for car buyers to understand the bottom line of the deal that they are getting. Does that zero percent interest rate come with strings attached? Will an allowed deferment in payments still accrue interest, making the loan more costly in the end? Or will you sell the vehicle before you’ve paid off the balance of the loan and lost valuable equity you needed to sell it for a profit or to even break even?

 

In the end, whether you end up buying a new or used vehicle, it’s still important to trust the individual and dealership you are buying it from. In a time where so much has moved to online interaction and less face to face, it’s important to research reviews prior customers have left to see what they are saying about their dealings with the dealership in order to gain trust and feel confident you are not going to get taken advantage of and will be securing the best vehicle and deal you can for your hard-earned money.

Labor Day weekend marks the end of summer to most but to school-age children and their parents, it also indicates it’s time to go back to school. Regardless if you have your own kids returning for another school year or not, as drivers, we should recognize the returning hazards and happenings that correlate with the school year beginning. These can include school bus stops, school zones, added pedestrians and possible cyclists. Here is our back to school driving tips as we encounter kids head back for another year of learning.

 

School Bus Stops

Today’s school buses are designed with safety in mind and are proven to be the safest form of transportation available to kids commuting to school but they are also limited to how much protection they can offer students when kids are boarding or deboarding the school bus. And that’s where driver awareness and mindfulness for kids’ safety comes into play. While some drivers choose to ignore school bus laws entirely and pass them illegally, there are many who might find themselves caught in situations where they are confused about the right way to treat a bus stop and a refresher on school bus stop laws are a good idea. Whether you have been driving for years or a brand new licensed driver, it’s important to know exactly the following rules.

The Michigan State Police website states:

School bus safety tips for drivers:

  • Prepare to stop when a slowing bus has its overhead yellow lights flashing
  • Stop at least 20 feet away for buses when red lights are flashing, unless driving in the opposite direction on a divided highway
  • Slow down in or near school and residential areas
  • Look for clues-such as safety patrols, crossing guards, bicycles, and playgrounds-that indicate children might be in the area
  • Watch for children between parked cars and other objects

School buses are like traffic signals

  • When overhead lights are flashing yellow: Prepare to stop
  • When overhead lights are flashing red: Stop
  • When hazard warning lights are flashing: Proceed with caution

School bus safety tips for students:

  • Always stay in sight of the bus driver
  • Don’t hurry off the bus; check traffic first
  • Don’t go back to the bus after exiting

 

School Zones

School buses out on the roads in the early morning or late afternoon isn’t the only reminder that school is now back in session. Along with them, drivers may also encounter school zones. The Michigan Vehicle Code defines a “School zone” as school property on which a school building is located and the adjacent property. A school zone extends not more than 1,000 feet from the school property line in any direction. They are often indicated by a flashing light on a reduced speed sign on area roadways with the timeframes that they are in effect from and reduces the speed by not more than 20 mph of the regularly posted speed limit. Drivers should be very aware of where school zones are located, reduce their speed and be extremely alert when traveling through them to keep children who may be walking, biking or crossing the roadway.

 

Pedestrians & Cyclists

While a lot of kids ride a school bus or travel to and from school with their parents, there are still many others that may be walking to school or a bus stop and others that might choose to ride their bicycle to school. Young children can spontaneous and make poor decisions on where and when to cross the road but middle and high school age kids can easily become distracted while using their phones. In fact, a recent study showed that 20% of high school students admitted to crossing the street while being distracted by their phones! Despite what age of the kids you may encounter, drivers should always be cautious and expect the unexpected, particularly in residential areas where kids are more likely to be found, while passing pedestrians on the road or sidewalks, and never block crosswalks when stopping at red lights and stop signs.

Summertime often brings road trips and travel to people in West Michigan. And whether it’s a short jaunt to the beach, the park or taking a longer distance trip to a vacation destination, many people are opting to take their pooch with them in lieu of leaving them home alone. Before you bring man’s best friend along for the ride, check out these ways to keep your pet safer in the car.

 

It Starts With You

The best way to keep your pet safe while you are driving might come as a surprise but it ultimately begins with you as a driver. We all realize how detrimental distracted driving is to the safety of everyone on the road but frequently, drivers fail to comprehend how distracting some things may be in a vehicle, including their beloved pet. Particularly when they are sitting on your lap while you are driving. Commit to lessening your distractions by never driving with your dog on your lap, regardless of how long you have been doing so in the past. Not only is it a danger to you and your pup, but to others who are sharing the road.

 

Buckle Them Up

There’s a reason why there are seatbelt laws for people… seatbelts work! Pet who are involved in vehicular accidents without being restrained greatly run the risk of suffering serious injuries such as broken bones, internal injuries, severe trauma and even death. They also run the risk of becoming a missile launched towards you in the event of a collision. Even at speeds as low as 25mph, an unrestrained pet can be launched forward at a force equal to 40 times its weight! Additionally, pets can become disoriented and afraid after a collision and run away from the scene of the crash.  Not only does this increase their chance of becoming lost in an unknown area, but it also prevents them from receiving medical attention that might be needed as quickly as they should.

Do your beloved pet and yourself a favor by finding a safe method to restrain them while inside the vehicle every time. There are many ways to keep your pet safely restrained in a moving car, van, truck or SUV.  Be sure to find the one that works best for you and your pet.  A crate that has been safely secured to avoid shifting or sliding is one way to keep your pet safe.  It should be large enough for your pet to sit, stand, turn around or lie down while riding inside.  A similar option for smaller dogs under 20 pounds or cats would be a pet carrier or a pet seat.  These devices can be secured by a seatbelt to keep them safe and an added bonus is they can be used as a carrier when you reach your destination.  Likewise, a harness designed and approved to be used in vehicles, used in tandem with a pet seat belt, can keep them safe.  Just use caution when purchasing them as there are no government standards or testing in place to regulate their safety.

 

Plan Your Feedings

Not every pet loves riding in a vehicle and even those that do may experience motion sickness if they begin the trip with a full belly. It can also lead to unpleasant bathroom accidents on your upholstery. But feeding Fido 3-4 hours before you intend to travel can help lessen the chance of them becoming nauseated and vomiting inside the vehicle or having an accident either out of fear or sheer necessity.

 

Be Prepared

Whether it’s a long trip to another state or short cruise to somewhere local in Grand Rapids, it’s important to be prepared. Be sure to pack a leash if they are traveling in a safety harness or crate inside the vehicle and water if you plan on being gone for any significant time period. For longer trips, it’s important to bring along some staples to keep them happy and safe. These should include a bowl, bottled water, food, a favorite toy to chew or play with on the way and a pillow or blanket to make them feel more secure. Also, it’s important to plan out any stops you’ll need to make along the way and if your pet will be allowed to join you inside any store or restaurant. Play it smart and avoid any risk to your beloved pet by foregoing leaving them unattended, even for short periods of time.

Summer is synonymous with road trips for many across West Michigan. But just because you plan to get out of town, doesn’t mean you need to spend more doing so than necessary. Before you go, check out these tips and tricks to save money on your next road trip.

 

Plan Ahead

While spontaneity can bring excitement to a trip, it can also make things more expensive than they absolutely need to be but making some decisions beforehand, you can help reduce the overall cost of your trip versus making decisions on the fly. Start by deciding some of these things…

  • Will it be a house, a condo or a boat? If so, utilizing websites like Homeaway, VRBO or Airbnb to find lodging at a privately owned home or rental can help you find a good deal at the destination of your choosing.
  • Will your drive be long enough to make it necessary to have an overnight stop to sleep where you’ll need to stay at an additional hotel? If so, try comparing hotel and motel rates with websites like Kayak, Orbitz or Hotels.com to find a cheaper rate typically over what you can get booking directly through the hotel’s or motel’s website.
  • What attractions will you be taking part in while you’re there? More than likely your trip will involve some type of sightseeing and knowing what you plan to do ahead of time can save you some green. Many cities offer bundle deals to some of their most popular attractions and buying one can typically save you a bulk amount if you plan on hitting up all or some of the locations listed. Try searching for deals before you leave or seeing if buying tickets online and printing them out before you leave home can save you as well. Remember, every $5 or $10 you don’t have to spend adds up! In addition, you can search sites like Groupon, LivingSocial or CoolSavings can help you find hidden savings or events you never thought to try while you were in town!

 

Get Road Ready

Road trips are only fun if you can get there. Avoid the stress of breaking down on some unknown highway or byway by getting your vehicle in shape for the trip ahead before you head out. Check your tires to make sure they offer the recommended tread to keep you safe on the road to ensure they have the recommended air pressure. Not only will it keep you safer on the road, but it will also help improve your fuel efficiency and savings at the pump. In addition, getting an oil change and a tuneup before you leave will lessen the odds of having issues on your vacation. If you decide your vehicle just isn’t roadworthy enough to make a long-distance trip, look into renting a vehicle. While it may seem like an added expense, the truth is it could be the difference between having an expensive tow and repair bill in a strange town or getting there worry-free.

 

Pack Smart

Making frequent stops for snacks and meals while on the road can not only make a long trip feel even longer, they can also tally up fast as unneeded hits to your pocketbook. Packing sandwiches, drinks and healthy snacks into a cooler for your trip can help alleviate both problems and you’ll find it will more than likely be a healthier choice to keep you feeling better as well.

 

Save At The Pump

While many people may download apps like Gas Buddy to save at the pump (which also isn’t a bad idea), you can save on fuel before you even get there by adjusting your driving. Habits like accelerating quickly, braking often and driving too fast reduce your fuel efficiency as well as making your drive more stressful. Driving defensively can not only help you improve your mpg but it can help you avoid an unwanted accident.

Getting a driver’s license is right of passage that many kids can’t wait to achieve but for many parents, sending their kids off to navigate the open road alone can be a terrifying experience. When you consider the scary statistics behind teen drivers, it’s no wonder many find it hard to let them go on their own. Teen drivers have the highest crash rate of any age group which is nine times as high as drivers who are 20 years of age and up, and six times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than adults.

 

While Michigan has adapted its driver’s license program to include graduated licensing to give teens time to gain experience before they gain full driving privileges without restrictions, many parents still wonder if there is more they can do to prepare their new drivers for the unexpected and the surprising answer is yes! Recognizing the need to show teen drivers how to deal with the unexpected, a few different teenage defensive driving programs have been developed to show teens how to handle the vehicle they’re driving in a safe environment before the need arises. In fact, recent studies have shown that teens who complete similar programs are 64% LESS likely to be involved in an accident their first year of driving when compared to their teen counterparts who had not taken a defensive driving course. Additionally, those that complete these courses could also be eligible for discounts from their insurance companies, giving parents not just peace of mind and money in their pockets.

 

 

Michigan State Police Teenage Defensive Driving Course

Michigan State Police are arguably some of the best drivers in the world and as such, train recruits from the academy and law enforcement officers from around the world.  As their website states, this class gives teens a chance to “Train like a Trooper”, with the same instructors and over the same closed course that recruits and FBI agents actually train on! Over the course of four hours, teens learn with hands-on training on how to effectively navigate defensive driving in areas with practical exercises in serpentine, controlled braking, evasive maneuvering and skid control. Class sizes are capped at 16 pupils so driver to instructor ratio is a max of 2:1 and offered to drivers between the ages of 16-19. While previously, there was a four year waiting list, recent changes to class curriculum and length have allowed State Troopers to double the number of students they can train, reducing the waiting list now to one year. You can find more information and get your teen added to the 2020 waiting list by visiting here. Class cost is $75 and participants are required to hold a Graduated Level 2 license.

 

 

Ford Driving Skills For Life

Celebrating their “Sweet 16” this year, the Ford Driving Skills For Life works to take driving skills to a higher level beyond driver’s training and teach young drivers practical skills they’ll be able to utilize throughout their lifetime to keep themselves and others safer on the road.

As Ford Driving Skills for Life continues to move forward and adapt to changing driver behaviors and new road safety concerns, the program will again introduce innovative tools and add specialized programming to enhance the learning experience for new drivers.  Highlights of this year’s Ford Driving Skills for Life program include innovative new sleep suit technology to demonstrate the dangers of drowsy driving, new training module to explain how to use ever-improving vehicle safety technology, expanded program for the unique circumstances of driving in rural and emerging markets, addition of a parent module to assist in teen training away from Driving Skills for Life events and U.S. communities that are new participants in the program’s hands-on training.

 

 

B.R.A.K.E.S.

B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible And Keep Everyone Safe) is a non-profit 501(c)3 whose mission is to prevent injuries and save lives by training and educating teenage drivers and their parents about the importance of safe and responsible driving. A FREE program for drivers between the ages of 15-19 with a valid driver’s permit or driver’s license in 18 different states, it was started by NHRA drag racing star Doug Herbert after losing his two young sons, Jon and James, in a tragic car crash in January of 2008. Resolving to put together a program to save other families from the heartbreak of losing a child behind the wheel, he put together a program to teach young drivers the necessary advanced skills to build confidence and keep them safe including collision avoidance, off-road recovery, skid recovery, distraction exercises and panic stop.

When people consider buying a vehicle, they often grapple over whether to buy a new or used one to fit their needs. Often times, they try to weigh the benefits of paying more for a brand new car, van, SUV or truck over a used one, with one of those highlighted benefits being the safety net of a warranty accompanying that purchase. But If you’re one of the 71% of Americans polled who are considering buying a used car over new, you might be asking yourself if you truly have to sacrifice a warranty in order to save money?

Many people are completely surprised to find out that it’s possible to save thousands by buying a quality used vehicle from Broadmoor Motors that also comes backed by a FREE 30 Day/3000 Mile powertrain warranty. In addition to our standard 30 Day Warranty that’s offered on nearly all of our vehicles at our Caledonia, Hastings and Wayland locations, we offer our customers the ability to purchase an Extended Protection Plan, which offer varying levels of coverage to meet both their needs and their budget.

Before we talk about what makes Broadmoor Motor’s warranty different than other dealerships, it’s important to understand what are extended service plans. Extended Service plans are essentially insurance plans that safeguard against possible unexpected and expensive repairs that might arise in the future. They cover certain repairs which are agreed upon in the plan for a specific period of time or mileage once the vehicle and extended plan are purchased, and they can offer the buyer peace of mind that they won’t be out thousands of dollars in the future should problems arise.

 

Unlike many Extended Service plans which are handled by outside parties, our Broadmoor Motors options are all locally administered so you won’t ever have to deal with needing to call a strange 1-800 number only to be told you’ll have to take your vehicle to some remote dealership you have no relationship with. Our customers need only to contact us and then repairs are handled by us. Our service products have been built with the primary focus of our customer’s needs in mind and are not an attempt to just try to sell them something that is completely unnecessary. Unlike an outside party, we feel like we are familiar with the history of our vehicles and our customer, making us far more capable of providing the right coverage to fit them individually.

A common misperception is that a hassle-free claim is not possible with an extended warranty but at Broadmoor Motors, it’s our goal to provide it for our customers! We offer our customers a complimentary car rental during the entire repair of the vehicle so they can still live their lives with a minimal amount of inconvenience while the claim is being handled. We also provide complimentary towing to our dealership so we can get to work resolving any problem. In addition, our warranties are transferable which means you have an added plus for anyone buying the vehicle from you privately in the future. PLUS, our warranties are backed by a locally owned and operated company who has built a trusted reputation while being in the automotive business for over 60 years in the Grand Rapids area!!

Is there anything more greatly anticipated than the return of Spring in West Michigan?! After a particularly grueling winter this year, with snowstorm after polar vortex after snowstorm, the first sightings of a robin returning to the greater Grand Rapids area feels like a reprieve with the promise of warmer days on the horizon. But with the change in weather comes a change in what your vehicle needs to give you its best performance and now is the perfect time to get your vehicle Spring ready…

 

Give It A Wash

Winter in Michigan is hard on the body of your vehicle… the snow, the slush, the grime but mostly the salt put down on the roads to help melt snow or ice and improve traction for vehicles on the road. But that repeated exposure to road salt can do a terrible thing to your vehicle’s body and undercarriage. The result can be rusted or corroded exhaust systems, brake systems and muffler.  Rust occurs when oxygen and moisture combine on metal but salt can accelerate that process. Taking the time to get regular car washes can help prevent this from happening but washing your vehicle once the weather has cleared is important to make sure all of the salt is washed off of your entire vehicle.

 

Swap Out Your Tires

If there’s one thing Michiganders know it’s that the weather in Grand Rapids is a fickle thing. Too often, we put away our snow and ice scrapers only to have the swift and fierce hand of Mother Nature swat us for our eager mistake. So it’s no wonder why people question when and if they should swap out their winter tires for summer tires? The quick answer is yes, you definitely should change your tires as the temperatures grow warmer and here’s why. Snow tires are designed to perform at their best when temperatures are below 40 degrees Fahrenheit or below while summer tires work best at temps between 50-100 degrees Fahrenheit. So as temps begin to consistently climb higher during the day, it’s time to think about swapping out your winter tires for summer or all terrain.

And while you’re paying attention to those tires, take the time to check their condition. Check your tire’s air pressure to make sure they are inflated to the manufacturer’s specifications.  Doing so can improve gas mileage and prevent tire failure while you’re driving.  In addition to tire pressure, you’ll want to inspect the overall condition of all four tires for uneven wear and tread depth.  Worn tires can negatively impact your braking distance and will certainly affect your tires ability to maintain traction on the roadway.  Before heading out on your trip, make sure your tread depth is not below 4/32.  An easy way to make sure you have the recommended amount of tread is with the quarter test.  Flip a quarter upside down with Washington’s head facing you.  If his head is partially covered by the tire, your tires still have adequate tread.  If not, it’s time to replace them.

 

Get New Blades

April showers may bring May flowers but for your vehicle, they can make it extremely difficult to see. Rain showers and storms are frequent in Spring in the greater Grand Rapids and your windshield wipers have an important job to do while you’re out on the road. To make sure the harsh winter weather hasn’t taken its toll on your wiper blades before you encounter the inclement weather Spring has to dish out, start by looking for any wear on your blades including tears, rips or cracks on the rubber.  Then test your wiper blades with washer fluid to see if there’s any streaking or pulling away from the windshield to make sure they will work properly when you need it most.  Replace the windshield wiper blades if you notice any of these things to ensure your windshield stays clear from any kind of precipitation or debris.
