More Driving Tips From Your Florissant Used Car Dealer

Florissant Used Car DealerDriving is hazardous, especially in the winter time. The constant freezing and thawing of water weakens pavement and causes a lot of potholes. These large divots are the bane to many peoples existence, and right now they are like a plague!

So, are there ways to better drive in our pothole-infested roads? There is always a better way, and your favorite Florissant used car dealer is here to tell you exactly how.

Drive Smarter Not Harder

There are a lot of tips for safe driving, the first and foremost rule is probably to stay calm. No matter what driving situation you are in staying relaxed is a sure fire way to make sure things go as smooth as they can.

Florissant Used Car Dealer TipsWhen it comes to holes in the road and you are in traffic, keep a lot of distance between you and the driver ahead of you. This does two things. First it allows you to actually see if there is a hole coming. Second, if you do happen to hit a pothole this distance will lessen the chance of getting into an accident.

Avoiding these sometimes small and sometimes huge divots in the road is the most obvious advice, but that can’t always happen. If you are inevitably going to drive into one, simply slow down. Braking directly over a pothole can cause serious damage to you car. As you are cringing, driving over this annoying hole, hold on to your steering wheel tight! The vibrations can easily make you lose control by knocking your hands off the wheel.

Lastly, water may not be as clear as it seems so please don’t haul through a puddle so quickly. There may be a large divot that uses water as a decoy. This actually happens all too often, so just be careful.

If you do get in a jam because of pothole damages, consider checking out our Florissant used car inventory for a newer model. A 2010 Jeep, for example, can handle these holes a heck of a lot better than a 1985 Eagle Premier!

Helpful Hints On Buying Used Trucks In Florissant

Used Truck Dealer FlorissantThe time has come. You are officially going to become a truck owner, but have you weighed all of your options? There really is a lot more to buying one than just shouting out to the world, “I am going to buy a pick up!”

GMT Auto Sales would like to give you some tips on shopping used trucks in Florissant. There is more to it than you might think.

Time To Buy The Ride Of Your Dreams

OK, if you’ve been fantasizing about owning a specific make and model, then we understand. For the other hundreds of used truck shoppers in Florissant who may not be so sure, there is a lot to consider.

Probably the first thing to consider is the size. Do you want a heavy duty, full size or compact truck? Once that issue is laid to rest, you have to choose which type of cab design suits you the best. Basically there are three types of cabs, regular, extended and crew. Regular is the smallest, while crew cabs can seat five to six passengers comfortably.

Price is definitely a factor. How much are you willing to spend? Obviously shopping used pickups is the smarter more cost-effective choice. Florissant customers will still want to set a budget though, because even used trucks can get pretty expensive!

Used Trucks FlorissantWhat type of engine and fuel economy are you looking for? These type of vehicles can come with a variety of cylinders, but most have a minimum V6 engine. Gas is expensive, it will pay off to consider what type of fuel economy you are getting.

What type of engine you choose will correlate to the towing capacity, if that is something that you are interested in. If you are going to tow, consider what you will be towing and how much capacity you will need. For example some pickups can tow 3,000 – 7,000 lbs, while heavy duty models can tow 30,000+ lbs!

Speaking of towing, what kind of drivetrain would you like? Most trucks are offered in both manual and automatic transmissions, as well as two and four wheel drive. Test driving a variety of used trucks will help you figure out which drivetrain you will need for the Florissant area.

Let’s not forget safety and interior comfort! Although safety is always at the forefront of manufacturers minds, get the full length of features to ensure you have everything you want. Obviously we all want to be comfortable, but again, get inside the truck and see how it really feels!

Our used truck dealer in Florissant will be happy to get you inside whichever model you are interested in. Our staff can help you answer these tough questions and will talk to you more about the special luxury of being truck! Contact us by calling 314-266-6688 to schedule a test drive today!
