A Guide to All Things Tire Maintenance

Tires are a vital part of your vehicle. They help keep your vehicle on the ground and helps promote a comfortable ride. The holiday and winter season is approaching and now is the time to think about your tires. As your family-owned car dealership in mid-Missouri, we know the importance of tires and how they can directly affect your travel experience. Ensure your tires are ready for your upcoming travels by bringing your vehicle into our California, MO car maintenance department. In the meantime, take a look at our tire guide below!


Replacement

Over time, your tires will naturally wear down and need to be replaced. New tires can help keep you and your family safe on the road, as you travel out of town for the holidays. It is also a good idea to ensure your tires are in proper condition before winter weather strikes in the area. New tires, with good tire tread, can help your vehicle grip when traveling on slick, snow-covered roads.

Rotation

Rotating tires can help to keep them wearing evenly and elongate the lifespan. When your tires are rotated, the back tires and front tires are swapped. This helps to gain maximum life and performance out of your tires. Tires on a vehicle that is front wheel drive may wear unevenly because the tires are used to grip, causing the surface to wear down quicker. If you notice uneven wear when you inspect your tires, you may need to schedule a tire rotation, before heading on a road trip.

Alignment

Proper tire alignment promotes even tire wear and helps to keep your vehicle headed straight when driving on the road. Each vehicle has proper alignment recommendations for the make and model. Over time, traveling on bumpy roads or running over something, your tires can get out of alignment. If you experience drifting or pulling, when you drive your vehicle, it may be time for an alignment.

Balance

A properly balanced tire helps to minimize uneven wear and extend the life of the tires. When a tire is balanced, small weights are attached to the wheel in order to limit vibration of the tire and wheel as they turn. If you notice a vibration when driving, schedule a tire balance for your vehicle before heading out of town for the holidays.


Ensure your check over your tires on a regular basis. Whether you're driving around town achieving daily tasks or heading out for a long road trip to visit family over the holidays, it's important your tires are top of mind. If you're in question, bring your ride by our dealership vehicle maintenance in California, MO. Here at Spieler's Inc., we look forward to helping ensure your tires are ready for a safe trip - no matter where you're headed!

Perks of Buying a New Vehicle

Are you dreaming of a new ride? When it comes to buying a new vehicle in mid-Missouri, you have plenty of options available. There are benefits of buying both used and new vehicles for sale near Jefferson City, MO. Don't forget to check out last week's blog featuring the perks of buying a pre-owned vehicle. While you weigh your options to find the best fit for your unique needs, take a look below to find some of the benefits of buying a new car in California, MO.


Pick and Choose Features

If you know exactly what you want in a vehicle, new may be the way to go. You can pick and choose the exact features in a vehicle. Whether you want a specific color or certain feature combination, you can custom order that in a new ride. If you're after something specific that may not be very common, selecting a new ride is a great option.

Financing Length

Typically, the newer the vehicle the longer a bank will loan on the vehicle. If you're wanting to keep your payment at bay, a new ride may be the right option for you. A lender will usually lend out 72 months on a new ride. This can help dramatically decrease your monthly payment compared to a 60 month loan.

Minimal Wear & Tear

A new vehicle is just that - new. If you want a ride in immaculate condition, a new ride sounds like the way to go. A pre-owned vehicle will often times have some minor wear and the only way to avoid that is to purchase new. From a perfect exterior to no stains inside, a flawless new vehicle can be found at our dealership.

Vehicle Longevity

A new vehicle will usually last longer than its pre-owned counterpart. If you want to get the most use out of a vehicle, starting new is the best way to accomplish that. A vehicle with the least amount of miles - usually new - will likely be on the road longer than a pre-owned model from years past.

Warranty Options

A new vehicle usually has a variety of warranty options available. The manufacturer likely will have some sort of warranty available on the vehicle. A standard warranty will cover bumper to bumper for a certain time/mileage and then powertrain for an extended time beyond the bumper to bumper warranty. You can rest assured your new ride will be fixed at no charge while it's within the warranty guidelines.

Now that you know some of the perks of buying a new vehicle in mid-MO, you're ready to start your car search! Stop by the best car dealership in California, MO to check out our current selection of new vehicles. If we don't have exactly what you're after, we can help you track it down. Let our sales team know what vehicle and features you're interested in and we can customize the perfect ride for your unique wants and needs! Here at Spieler's Inc., we look forward to helping you find the right new rig for you and your family.

Perks of Buying a Pre-Owned Vehicle

Are you dreaming of a new-to-you ride? When it comes to buying a new vehicle in mid-Missouri, you have plenty of options available. There are benefits of both buying a new or used vehicle for sale near Jefferson City, MO. While you weigh your options to find the best fit for your unique needs, take a look below to find some of the perks of buying a used car in California, MO.


More Affordable

The main perk of purchasing a used car is that the price tag is significantly lower. Not only are you able to save money on the purchase, but you could also get a much nicer model for the price that you would have paid for a new, lower-end model. If you’re looking to save some money on your next car purchase, our selection of used cars is a great place for you to go!

Information Readily Available

With used cars, there’s a wealth of information out there on which ones run the best, have the least issues and are going to be a good used purchase for you. The new car market is constantly dealing with recalls trying to get everything right, while the used car market has already found and remedied these issues. There are forums all over the internet where you can find the answers to pretty much any question you might have about your used car.

Lower Insurance Rates

Not only will the price of a used car be less than that of a new one, but the cost of your insurance will likely also be less. Insurance rates are affected by several things, including the age of the car. The premiums on used vehicles tend to be less expensive. Also, if you paid cash for your used vehicle instead of financing it, you won’t have to purchase full coverage, which can also save you money.

Slower Depreciation

While cars lose their value with each passing mile and minute, the steepest depreciation on vehicles happens in its first year. Some vehicles can lose as much as 20% of their value after you drive them off the lot. When you buy used, there’s no immediate depreciation; the previous owner already took that loss for you. Your used car will still depreciate in value, but you’ll lose less money less quickly than you would buying brand new.

Now that you know some of the perks of buying a used car in Mid-Missouri, you're ready to start your car search! Stop by the best car dealership in California, MO. We look forward to showing you around our pre-owned vehicle selection. Spieler's Incorporated is here for all of your car buying needs! Our friendly staff can help you find the right vehicle for your wants and needs with no pressure! It's an experience unlike any other!

Bad Habits to Break Behind the Wheel

Driving a vehicle is a major responsibility. You are not only in control of your life and others in your vehicle, you have an impact on all other drivers on the roadways. It's important to take this great responsibility to heart. When driving, you should give the task at hand 100% of your attention. There are many habits that can cause you to be distracted while driving. Take a look below to learn about the top bad driving habits everyone should break.


Traveling Above the Speed Limit

A common bad habit for many drivers is speeding. Speed limits are set for the purpose of keeping drivers safe. Usually speeding will not get a driver to their destination that much quicker. Take your time when driving and leave in plenty of time to avoid going over the speed limit when traveling on the road.

Failure to Use Turn Signal

Many drivers do not use a turn signal when turning or changing lanes. This helps show other drivers on the road which direction you plan to turn or merge. If you do not use a turn signal, another driver may not be aware of where you plan to move your vehicle.

Following Too Close

A good rule of thumb is to allow 1 car length for every 10mph you are traveling. For example, if you are going 60mph, you want to have 6 car lengths of space between your car and the car in front’s bumper. Allowing adequate room between vehicles gives enough time to react if the car in front were to break suddenly.

Taking Your Eyes Off the Road

Distracted driving is the cause of many accidents. Looking at your phone instead of focusing on the road is a dangerous distraction. Even if you are watching the road while on a phone call, you still may be more focused on your conversation than driving. Switching the radio and glancing away from the road for just a second can also be dangerous. Many drivers will be rushed and complete their daily grooming tasks behind the wheel. This is a big distractor and can be dangerous for the driver and others on the road.

Speed Up Through Yellow Light

When a light turns yellow, many drivers will accelerate through the intersection to avoid stopping at the soon approaching red light. When a driver speeds through, the light may have already turned red which triggers the alternating lights to turn green. This can lead to an unnecessary wreck in an intersection.

Not Wearing Seatbelt

Wearing a seatbelt while driving or riding in a vehicle is not only the law but a huge safety precaution. Unfortunately, wrecks do happen and having a seatbelt on helps to keep the individual in their seat. Keeping your safety device buckled while the car is in motion can improve your chances of surviving if a crash does occur.

Do you do one or more of these tasks while driving? Try to reduce the number of distractions around you as you drive. As the best car dealership in mid-Missouri, we know what a big responsibility driving is. It's not something we take lightly and you shouldn't either. We want to help be a driving force in making the roads around our California, MO car dealership safer for our customers, friends, and family!
