SAFETY RECALLS

Thursday, January 11th, 2018

 

Beach Auto Brokers is committed to your safety regardless of the vehicle you drive.

An auto recall occurs when a manufacturer (or the NHTSA) determines that a car model (or several models) has a safety-related defect or does not comply with a federal safety standard. When this happens, the automaker will alert owners to the problem and usually offer a free repair.  Many owners, however, may not know that their vehicle has a recall and is in need a repair.

You can find up to date safety recall information online for your vehicle.  AND… The good news is that safety recalls fix problems recognized by the manufacturer with no cost to the consumer.

The bad news is that the majority of consumers ignore recalls, or don’t know about them all together.  A 2012 study done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that 25% of problems covered by recall notices still remain unrepaired. We want you to be safe on the road.  Checking for safety recalls on your vehicle is as easy as 1-2-3…

Step 1:     Locate your VIN and use the link provided below to check your vehicle for recalls through the NHTSA.
Step 2:     If you have an open recall, schedule a service appointment with the local dealership for your vehicle make to have the work performed.
Step 3:     Go in to have your recall work done FREE of charge.

Need help locating the VIN on your vehicle?  Check out this helpful illustration.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Consumer reports recommends that if you notice that something seems wrong with your vehicle, say something. Get involved. If your car develops a problem that you think could put you or someone else in danger, such as a fuel leak or a serious steering or braking defect that’s not related to wear and tear, report it to the automaker’s customer-service department and NHTSA’s safety hotline (www.safercar.gov). Automakers and the government depend on consumer complaints to find out about safety concerns and do something about them. If no one reports a problem, it’s as if it never existed.

Traveling This Fall!

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

This year’s Road Trip season is extending into the Fall, according to AAA*.  Friday, September 22nd, marks the official end of Summer and the Beginning of Autumn, but American’s don’t seem ready to stop traveling and taking vacations.

Traveling between Labor Day and Thanksgiving has its advantages…

  • You tend to get better value for your money since most vacation destinations are now in their “off-season”.
  • The weather is not too hot and not too cold – its just right!
  • Smaller crowds since its not the peak travel and vacation season.

So your probably wondering where to go… here are a few ideas:

  • Go see the Fall Foilage. Great places to visit are the NorthEast, New England, and the mountains of North Carolina or Colorado.
  • Get to one of the top 5 stateside mainland destinations:
    1. Orlando, Fl
    2. Anaheim, CA
    3. New York City
    4. Las Vegas
    5. Boston

If you decide to take your vehicle and hit the road this Fall, remember your travel safety!  Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Wear a seat belt every single time you’re in the car.
  • Restrain children in age-, height- and weight-appropriate car seats.
  • Don’t drive drunk or drugged; use a designated driver… or Uber or Lyft.
  • Get plenty of sleep before a car trip, and take regular breaks to stave off fatigue.
  • Avoid distracted driving by refraining from using smartphones or other devices while driving.
  • Check your vehicle’s tire pressure, wiper blades, fluid levels, lights and air conditioning before you hit the road.
  • Check for outstanding safety recalls on your car using the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle identification number lookup tool.
  • Pack an emergency roadside kit containing a mobile phone and charger, first-aid kit, flashlight, flares, jumper cables, drinking water and blankets.

MOBILE BILLBOARDS!

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

Politics… Colleges/Univerisites/Alma Maters… Family… Military… Musical Interests… Humor… Pop Culture… Sports/Fitness/Leisure… Pets… Brands… Controversial Issues/Positions…

Whatever your position is, people are using their vehicles to express themselves.  And others are leaving their vehicles to remain a blank canvas.  Those who love bumper stickers use their vehicle as a roving billboards to declare their love of god, country, schools, kids, dogs, or occasionally clever aphorisms.

It’s surprising to find that geographically, there are trends as to what people will put on their vehicle, whether men or women are more likely to put a bumper sticker on their vehicle, and the perceptions of other drivers in relation to those bumper stickers. A recent survey of more than 2,000 drivers nationwide provides us with some interesting data. The survey found that women were far more likely to have bumper stickers than men, with 63 percent saying they’d slapped one on their car. Men, meanwhile, were evenly split on the matter, with 50 giving in to the urge and 50 showing restraint.   In regional terms, folks from the South–particularly Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee–were the biggest fans of bumper stickers: 68 percent admitted that they had one or more on their car. The content of those bumper stickers varied, but the most popular fell into the broad category of sports, fitness, and leisure activities, followed closely by politics. Gun-themed stickers were the least popular, making up just four percent of the total.

Living in Hampton Roads, we are happy to report that bumper stickers showing support for the military were the most appreciated: 88% of study participants gave them a thumbs-up.  Marathon-related stickers came in second, with 80% saying that they approved of long-distance runners.

So “whether you’ve placed a witty slogan on the back of your whip or you’re using the rear of your ride as a billboard for political campaigns, bumper stickers help car owners add a layer of expression to their vehicles. Bumper stickers allow drivers to share their humor, successes, and allegiances in the form of adhesive statements.”

CARS, TRUCKS, & PET SAFETY!

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Warm weather is here!  As the summer arrives, the temperatures go up, and we are all out enjoying the weather!  Lets take a minute to think about whether or not we’re taking our furry four-legged friends with us everywhere we go.  While we love to keep our pets with us, we need to think about their safety.  It can be dangerous to leave an animal in an unattended car, even with the windows open.  For certain outings, you may want to leave your pet at home.

Every year, hundreds of pets die from heat exhaustion because they are left in parked vehicles.  The temperature inside your vehicle can rise almost 20º F in just 10 minutes. In 20 minutes, it can rise almost 30º F…and the longer you wait, the higher it goes. At 60 minutes, the temperature in your vehicle can be more than 40 degrees higher than the outside temperature. Even on a 70-degree day, that’s 110 degrees inside your vehicle!

Your vehicle can quickly reach a temperature that puts your pet at risk of serious illness and even death, even on a day that doesn’t seem hot to you. And cracking the windows makes no difference.

So next time your headed out, and thinking of taking your furry four-legged friend along, consider if they will have to be left in the car at any time.  If so, you may want to rethink your decision and leave them in the comfortable A/C at home.
