Do I Need Gap Insurance?

There are many different insurance options to choose from, but if you have your car on a loan or a lease, gap insurance might be the right option for you! Gap insurance is the right choice if you owe more on your car than it is worth. If you don’t have gap insurance and your car is totaled, you’ll have to pay the difference between the insurance settlement and what you owe the dealer, meaning you’re stuck paying more and you still don’t have a car.

The ‘gap’ in gap insurance actually stands for ‘guaranteed asset protection’, which is designed to keep you from paying too much in the early years of car ownership, should an accident or damage occur. Cars lose a lot of value once they’re driven off the lot, so your need for gap insurance will go down after the first few years, once you’ve started making regular payments. Speak to your insurance company about gap insurance options today!

And when you’re ready to find the right new car, come on down to Posner Park Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, for a wide selections of vehicles, like the new Jeep Wrangler and RAM 2500! We look forward to putting you behind the wheel of your dream car!

Using Your High Beams Safely— Dos and Don’ts

Find out all the facts about correct use of high beams for your vehicle, especially on roads and highways like I-4 in Central Florida

Every car out there is equipped with high beams, but that doesn’t mean every driver knows how to use them properly. We’ve all been there, driving at night, a car comes around the bend and blinds you with their brights— that they just refuse to turn off.  Since the decreased visibility at night can be a serious safety hazard, it’s important to not add to the danger by improper use of a vehicle’s high beams. Here’s a quick refresher from your Five Star team here at Posner Park Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat on when and when not to turn on the bright lights.

Using Your High Beams Safely

First, let’s talk about the correct use of high beams.

  • When visibility is low and there are no drivers in front of you.
  • If you are at least 200 feet behind a vehicle and its back lights don’t illuminate the road well enough for you to see.
  • When oncoming traffic is at least 500 feet away and you need the high beams to see well.

 

Now, let’s go over when not to use them. Remember, this is for the safety of everyone on the road.

  • Turn them off when traffic is approaching you, even if there is a median.
  • When taking a curve, you don’t know who might be coming around the bend, so don’t use your high beams then, either.
  • The same goes with hills, you don’t know if someone is about to crest the hill and be blinded.
  • At intersections, turn them off so you don’t blind someone traveling on the cross street.
  • High beams won’t help in fog, so make sure to keep them off during these conditions. The fog will actually just reflect the light back to you, making it even harder to see.

 

We hope these tips help you know when to use high beams on the road and when to turn them off. Safety is everyone’s responsibility, and we’re here to help.

When you’re in the market for a great price on a new vehicle or used car, come see us at Posner Park Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat. We’ll get you into a safe and reliable vehicle for an amazing price that only the Low Payment Kings can offer!  We are located conveniently in Polk County, between Tampa and Orlando off exit 55 on I-4.

What Type of Engine Do You Need?

Choosing the right engine type can sometimes be harder than choosing your favorite car. With so many options today, there is no right or wrong choice. What matters is that it works for you and your needs. At Posner Park Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we want to help you find the perfect engine for you.

We won’t go into all the details of how an engine works; the most important part is why. When your engine is converting fuel to power, it is making your vehicle run. This power is generated in your vehicle’s cylinders. Therefore, when you see a reference to a vehicle’s cylinders, you know more cylinders equals more power. On the flip side, more power generally equals less fuel efficiency.

These numbers are not concrete, however. Lots of other things can play into your engine’s performance, as well as how efficient your vehicle can be. You can turbocharge your engine to help with both. Plus, proper maintenance of your vehicle will always help its performance.

Engine Types

  • Four-Cylinder – A four-cylinder engine uses four chambers to generate power. These vehicles are usually the most fuel-efficient since they are smaller and don’t convert as much power.
  • V6/V8– Vehicles with six or eight cylinders typically have more power. These vehicles have two engine blocks in the shape of a ‘V’ with either three or four chambers on each.

Vehicle Examples

A lot of vehicles come with several options, so you can choose which works best for you. For example, the Chrysler Pacifica, RAM 1500, Dodge Charger, and Jeep Grand Cherokee can have a V6 or V8.

Need help deciding which is right for you? Visit our Orlando-area car dealership to take a few test drives and see which is best for you. Stop by 42650 Highway 27 in Davenport, FL; we’re happy to help!
