The Benefits Of Having A Remote Start For Your Ride

local custom car shopsThe automotive world has become so advanced today that there should be no need to frantically search your pockets or purse for your car keys. That is why our expert team at Bully Frog Customs, your local custom car shop, recommend that our customers looking into having a remote start feature for their ride. Not only is it convenient, but a remote start feature will be crucial in helping you stay warm this chilly winter season and can even be good for your engine. Here at Bully Frog Customs, your local customs destination, we think that the main benefits of installing a remote starter feature for your vehicle are:

Comfort

Let’s face it: no one likes to hop into their car, truck or SUV and having to sweat or shiver, depending on the season, while waiting for their car to get ready. That is where having a remote start feature truly comes in handy because you can have your ride the exact temperature you want with just the push of a button on your key fob. All you have to do is leave your climate control on when you turn your engine off, press your remote start button the next time you drive and wait a few minutes before you get inside. It’s that easy to drive off in total comfort.customs destinationSafety 

A remote start feature will also provide you with a sense of safety. It can lock or unlock your car at a distance so that you can have peace of mind about leaving your vehicle unattended. Also, warming up your car before you get inside will help clear your windows and headlights of any debris. That means it will defrost any snow or ice and improve your visibility this winter. Be sure to ask our experienced staff at Bully Frog Customs, your local custom car shop, more about how a remote start feature can help with your security.

Engine Health

Having a remote start feature can also improve the performance of your engine. In order for your car’s climate control system to begin yielding warm air, your engine has to first warm up as it runs. Since your ride typically idles for several minutes before you drive it, you will find that your engine oil becomes more viscous and gives you much better lubrication once you are ready to take off. Both gas and diesel engines can benefit from having a remote start feature from Bully Frog Customs, your local customs destination.

Here at Bully Frog Customs, your local custom car shop, we cannot wait to install a remote start feature on your ride and make your driving life a whole lot easier. Stop in and see us today!local custom car shop

Consumer Reports Rank Mazda Higher Than Ever

Preston Mazda

The quality of the Mazda brand has been on a constant rise in the last few years. According to Consumer Reports, Toyota and Lexus are the only brands outshining Mazda. This ranking is determined by owner reports and not members of the Consumer Reports team, so you know this is coming from customers who actually use the product. Based on the owner reported data, Mazda has advanced nine spots and now ranks only behind Toyota and Lexus. This improvement can be correlated to the improvements made to the CX-9 and the Miata. Out of all the Consumer Reports’ new rankings, Mazda has experienced the most dramatic move. This data was based on the results of more than 500,000 surveys from actual owners giving their real opinions.

Preston Mazda, your local Mazda dealership, is proud to be a part of this improvement. We have a number of Mazda Miata and Mazda CX-9 models that are available for purchase on our sales lot. Come into our dealership, talk to our team, and schedule your test drive so you can see these improvements for yourself. We are thrilled to continue Mazda’s tradition of providing high-quality models that drivers love. That way, the Mazda brand can continue to improve and enhance their Consumer Reports ranking even more. Come to Preston Mazda, your local Mazda dealer, and check out these improvements for yourself.

Fall Seasonal Maintenance

Easton Ford

The Preston Automotive Group wants to make sure that our clients always get the service they need for any upcoming season. Fall brings beautiful scenery; leaves falling and the weather cooling down to a comfortable temperature. However, keep in mind that this lovely fall weather can cause some issues for your vehicle if it is not properly maintained. We have listed out some of the aspects of your vehicle that you may want to check out before the fall season really gets into full swing.

Windshield Wipers – Spring and winter aren’t the only times for intense weather, as autumn also commonly entails late-night thunderstorms and even sometimes snow as you round the season out. A windshield that is dirty could lead to eye fatigue and even safety problems if the issue persists. Make sure that your windshield wipers have blades that are working correctly and replace them if you find any problems or missed spots. You should also make sure that you have enough windshield wiper fluid to keep your windshield completely clean.  

Easton Ford

Oil – You probably spent much of this past summer on the road, whether it be heading down to the beach for some fun during the day or taking that long road trip that your family has been craving all year. Either way, you’ve probably accrued some mileage on your car, truck or SUV. Make sure that you check your vehicle’s handbook to see how often you should be changing your oil. Having fresh oil can prevent engine problems and keep your fuel economy at the optimal rate. If you need your oil and/or filter changed, then come into one of the Preston Automotive Group’s service areas and get your vehicle back to peak performance.

Cooling/Antifreeze Systems – Even though fall is here, the summer heat may not be completely gone quite yet. Make sure your engine makes it through these last few hot weeks by ensuring that the cooling system has been flushed out and filled back up with coolant that is both factory approved and the right amount. Bring your vehicle into one of the Preston Automotive Group service stations and get your coolant levels checked and refilled, if needed. We can also make sure that your levels of antifreeze are where they should be, so your engine continues to perform how it should as we get closer to winter. So bring your vehicle into a Preston Automotive service department today and get it ready for the fall season under the hood.

Join Us In Helping Talbot Go Purple 2018

preston automotive

Last year saw the launch of the Talbot Goes Purple campaign, a focused effort to inspire our local communities to stand up and fight back against substance abuse. Our team at the Preston Automotive Group is proud to support the efforts of this initiative and to say that that the second annual Talbot Goes Purple campaign will kick off September 1st. Running for the entire month, there will be “purple clubs” in our local high schools that feature information and resources about how harmful abusing drugs or alcohol can be, how to help someone you know who suffers from addiction and more. These clubs will help show our youth that they do not need drugs or alcohol in their lives. You can also expect to see other events, and plenty of purple lights, all throughout the county. Here at the Preston Automotive Group, we are beyond excited to do our part in encouraging this important initiative, and we urge our customers to wear purple, decorate their businesses in purple and show other signs of support for this amazing initiative.

However, it is not just Talbot County that will be going purple for the month of September this year. Dorchester, Caroline, Kent and Queen Anne’s counties are all joining in to promote conversations on the epidemic of substance abuse — especially opioid and prescription painkiller abuse — that is sweeping through the Eastern Shore and what actions can be taken to stop it. Sussex County in Delaware will be joining in this effort as well. These other counties are using the Talbot Goes Purple campaign as an inspiration for their own initiatives and will be holding their own events such as walks, movie showings, talks and much more. It is definitely past time for all of us to see what we can do to prevent more overdoses or the selling of illegal substances in our towns, and Going Purple is a great way to display that. Want to help your friends at the Preston Automotive Group support the second annual Talbot Goes Purple campaign? Then make sure you visit the campaign’s website or find it on Facebook to see how you can volunteer. We are excited to go purple with you and show our solidarity against the dangers of heroin and other substance abuse.

Fuel-Efficient Ford Taxis

Preston Automotive

With so many Ford dealerships under our umbrella, the Preston Automotive Group is always thrilled to hear the latest innovations from the Ford Motor Company. Ford recently introduced two brand new fuel-efficient taxi models. They have introduced both a hybrid and a diesel taxi model that are sure to forever change the landscape of taxi production. The all-new Ford Fusion Hybrid Taxi was built specifically for this purpose and includes parts such as the suspension and brakes that were designed for the hard-working, strenuous life of the 2019 Police Responder Hybrid Sedan. You can also count on the standard rearview camera to make parking easier and a mounting plate so that you can quickly attach and secure your taxi meter or any other equipment you need. The Ford Fusion Hybrid Taxi is projected to get an astonishing EPA-estimated combined fuel economy rating of 38 MPG.

The brand new Transit Connect Taxi can be outfitted with an available 1.5-liter EcoBlue® diesel engine, which is predicted to get an EPA-estimated highway fuel economy rating of 30 MPG. This vehicle brings you seating for up to five in the flexible, comfortable interior. You’ll be getting over 60 cubic-feet of cargo volume behind the second row, which is more than the room found in the Nissan NV200 Taxi. This model also comes with first-row side curtain airbags, recessed second-row seating, an optional roof access hole for signage, and a taxi upfit wiring harness along with a reverse sensing system. Passengers can have easy access with the standard dual sliding side doors and the low vehicle floor. You can also use the Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier program to make this model wheelchair accessible. With these two revolutionary taxi models, the Ford Motor Company should be your go-to taxi provider for years to come.
