Five MORE Tips for Highway 27 Driving Safety

Driving safety on Highway 27 is always important. Here are some more tips for staying safe while driving in Central Florida around large trucks and buses.

 

Highway 27 driving safety is more important than ever, especially since sharing the roads with large trucks and buses can be a little intimidating to those who are not used to it. Here are some tips from the team at Posner Park Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT to help you practice driving safety on Highway 27, or any of the many busy roads while driving in Central Florida.

 

  1. It’s Not a Race

Getting stuck behind a large truck can be frustrating. They have restrictions and sometimes even special equipment that limit their speed. For this reason, they may not go as fast as you would like. Still, it’s better to take your time, then to rush to get past them and cause an accident.

 

  1. Don’t Forget Your Seatbelt

In the state of Florida, it’s the law to wear your seatbelt. Even if it wasn’t, it’s a good idea. Seatbelts save thousands of lives each year. If you are in an accident, having your seatbelt on will greatly decrease your risk for severe injury or death.

 

  1. A Major Hazard to Highway 27 Driving Safety is a Distracted Driver

We often hear about the dangers of texting and driving, but even looking down to operate the factory installed navigation system on your Posner Park Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT vehicle can put you at risk. If you must operate your GPS, take a call, send a text, or anything else that distracts you from driving, take a couple minutes to pull off into a parking lot and do it there.

 

  1. Driving Tired is Bad Too

Some research has shown driving tired to be as dangerous as driving drunk. Be sure to be well rested before getting in the car. If you are on a long trip take frequent breaks, change drivers often, or just get off the road and take time to rest. Whatever it takes to stay awake and alert, do it.

 

  1. Don’t Drive Under the Influence

Speaking of driving drunk, that’s our final caution and plee: DON’T DRIVE UNDER THE INFLUENCE. It’s a fact that alcohol slows your reaction times and impairs your judgement. You may have heard this one so many times that you are tired of hearing it. Still, it’s true. In fact, alcohol is not the only substance to be careful with. Many prescription meds can also leave you impaired and put you at risk.

Three Great Places to Get a Great Cheeseburger in Davenport

Hidden Cheeseburger gems near our Posner Park dealership off Highway 27.

 

Did you know that 60 percent of sandwiches sold in the world are actually hamburgers? Did you know that the hamburger started with the Hamburg steak, introduced to America by German immigrants? From there a bun was added and then cheese, creating the famous all-American cheeseburger. To help your cheeseburger cravings, the team at Posner Park Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT has compiled three of our favorite local spots to get a great cheeseburger in Davenport.

 

Corner Cafe

Located in the heart of Davenport is the Corner Cafe. The Corner Cafe has all the local charm you’d expect from a local cafe. Destiny, a recent Corner Cafe customer, said this about their burgers: “The BEST burger I’ve ordered in a while. It was fresh, flavorful and juicy. I took one bite and knew I would be back.” Known for being “consistent, welcoming, and family-friendly,” the Corner Cafe is a must try.

 

Ovation Bistro and Bar

Each year in America over 50 billion burgers are consumed. Located just a half mile north of Posner Park Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT, the Ovation Bistro and Bar is doing their part to contribute to that number. Not only is this a favorite place of locals, but of visitors from all over the world.

“We are back in the UK now . . . but felt we needed to recommend Ovation,” Claire, a loyal customer, says. Even from across the ocean she felt the need to drop some praise for Ovation.  Another reviewer says, “Extremely friendly and attentive service… A MUST when visiting the Orlando Area.” If you’re looking for the perfect spot to satisfy your cheeseburger craving, this should be on your list.

 

Manny’s Chophouse

The first hamburger selling fast food restaurant opened in 1921 and sold burgers for just 5 cents. A burger at Manny’s will cost a bit more than that, but is well worth it. A local legend known for their steaks, ribs, and bottomless salad bowl, Manny’s is also a great place to satisfy your longing for a big, juicy cheeseburger. With a playful, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff your visit is guaranteed to be a positive experience that you will want to repeat.

When a line forms outside a restaurant before they even open, you know you have found a good place. That’s the situation nearly every night at Manny’s. Even with that the wait is generally brief and always worth it.

How to Improve the Dealership Experience

Our goal at Posner Park Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM is to make everyone’s visit to the dealership a true success. We do everything in our power to do so, but there are a few things that you can keep do to help as well.

Occupy the Kids

If your kids will be coming with you when visiting us at Posner Park Chrysler, it’s a good idea to pack a bag full of activities for them to enjoy while you browse our lot. This includes coloring books, games, video game systems, tablets, toys, and other items that they love to use.

Know Your Budget

It’s important, and often recommended, to do a little financial research prior to your arrival. When you have an idea of what your budget is for the purchase of a new or pre-owned car, you will endure much less stress while on the lot. Take a look at your current expenses, your income, and the needs of the family when it comes to shopping for a vehicle.

Narrow Your Interest List

Narrow down the list of vehicles in which you have interest prior to your arrival. We understand that we sell a diverse selection of models, but not every one is going to meet your specific wants and needs. Having a short list of cars you like and can afford will make the visit go much smoother for all involved when looking at the RAM 1500 in Davenport, FL or Chrysler Pacifica.

Importance of Vehicle Fluids

Owning a car comes with a range of responsibility, one of which is routine maintenance. Part of this is monitoring the fluids and keeping them filled, which the team at Posner Park Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM is more than happy to assist with. There are several fluids that play a critical role in ensuring your vehicle is running optimally and efficiently, from radiator fluid to windshield wash.

Engine Oil

Engine oil is quite possibly the most important fluid your vehicle needs to operate. If you leave the oil unchanged for too long, you run the risk of engine components rubbing against one another, causing friction. This, of course, then can lead to overheating. That’s why the oil should be changed every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. Fresh oil is free of debris, dust, and other dirt that can harm the engine.

Transmission Fluid

Transmission fluid doesn’t need to be changed as often as engine oil, but it still needs to be monitored. It helps keep all components properly lubricated, along with preventing wear, enhancing cooling function, and increasing rotational speed.

Brake Fluid

Did you know that brakes need fluid to work properly? Brake fluid, also known as hydraulic fluid, helps the various parts of the braking system move seamlessly with one another. When there is a lack of fluid, your brakes will not work effectively.

Additional fluids that be regularly inspected and topped off include radiator, power steering, and windshield washer fluid. Are the fluids in your RAM 2500 or Dodge Charger near Four Corners, FL running low, or are you interested in learning more? It’s time to schedule an appointment for service with the experienced technicians in our Davenport, FL car service center.
