Winter Driving Tip #3

by on January 20th, 2011 at 9:30am in News

Make sure that your tire pressures are at the recommended settings. This will give you extended tire life, better fuel economy as well as help the car move easier on snow. This is important as the temperatures drop because the change from heat to cool may make your tire pressure light pop on!  Be SAFE out there today with all the snow!!!

Winter Driving Tip #2

by on January 18th, 2011 at 2:02pm in News

More snow is headed our way this week so here’s another winter driving tip…

Accelerate and decelerate slowly. Applying the gas slowly to accelerate is the best method for regaining traction and avoiding skids. Don’t try to get moving in a hurry. And take time to slow down for a stoplight. Remember: It takes longer to slow down on icy roads.

Four New Small Family Crossovers to Watch

by on January 4th, 2011 at 3:25pm in News

The all-new MINI Countryman made The Family Car Guides list for New Small Family Crossover to watch! :)

The all-new, four-door MINI Countryman debuts for 2011 in three models: Countryman, S Countryman, and S Countryman ALL4. The Countryman features “go-kart handling,” along with seven airbags, “ample cargo space,” and “stellar fuel efficiency.” The base engine is the 121-horsepower, 1.6-liter in-line four-cylinder that achieves an EPA-estimated 27 mpg city/35 mpg highway (manual) and 24/35 mpg (automatic). The Cooper S Countryman and S Countryman ALL4 have a twin-scroll turbocharged engine that makes 181 horsepower; fuel economy is 26 mpg city/32 mpg highway (in the S Countryman ALL4 it’s 25 mpg city/31 mpg highway).

Some call it a wagon, others a small SUV.

Whatever you call it, the 2011 MINI Cooper Countryman has lots of personality, style, performance, and fuel efficiency in a four-passenger package
