When you're behind the wheel, there are things that are within your control and things that are outside your control. The level of safety the vehicle you drive has is something you choose. Ever since car safety ratings started showing up in the late 1970s, consumers have been using them to make their purchasing decisions, and vehicle manufacturers have continuously worked to create safer vehicles. Staying safe on the road matters.
Since vehicle safety has come such a long way in the last few years and decades, here's a look at the evolution of seatbelt safety, crumple zones, and backup cameras.
Test drives are an unskippable portion of the car buying process. It's that time when you get to sit behind the wheel and drive a car you're interested in. It's an exciting time, but it's also important to stay focused. Staying alert and paying attention are musts.
Whenever you find yourself in the market for a new vehicle, it can be tough figuring out just where to start. Whether you're searching for a brand new car or something new to you, having your ducks in a row will help you get where you're going faster. Plus, if you use these questions to ask when buying a car, you're more likely to get a vehicle that meets your needs.
With every new year comes a new car buying experience. That's because every year brings with it newer technology, consumer preferences, and industry regulations. All of these things work together to influence what is and isn't included in the newest vehicle models. Since we're right at the beginning of a new model year, let's take a look at 2018's biggest vehicle trends.
There’s just a day or two left in 2017, and Miller Auto & Marine is like a lot of other central Minnesota companies preparing for the New Year. It’s both the perfect time to reflect on the year that’s about to turn the page, as well as look toward the future in terms of what we hope to accomplish and serve. Sure, I know the “numbers” that accompany end-of-year tallies, from inventory sold to talent hired to revenue earned. But none of that truly matters as much as the impact Miller Auto & Marine has in this community. I’m going to share some of our year’s best highlights – none of which have anything to do with the bottom line … just the bottom of our hearts.
Car problems sure can derail your plans, but thankfully they don't have to. Most of the time, your vehicle will let you know when something isn't quite right. Whether it comes in the form of a sound, a shake, a smell, or something else entirely, your vehicle has its way of letting you know it needs attention. To help you uncover any issues your vehicle might be dealing with, we put together an infographic on the most common car problems and how to fix them. Check it

One of the most exciting things about living in Minnesota is the opportunity to experience all four seasons. We get the growth and blooms of springtime, summer days by the lake, fall foliage people in other regions can only dream of, and winter snowscapes that are perfect for sledding, skiing, and sipping hot cocoa.
While every season in Minnesota brings its own joys and activities, they also come with their drawbacks. And, if you ask any Minnesotan about winter, they're likely to bring up driving and road conditions in their list of things they don't love about winter (it usually comes right after they talk about those days where the wind chill is -30 degrees).
Every once and a while, our staff members become our customers, too. So, we decided to ask a few Miller Auto & Marine employees what they drive and why they drive it. Then, we took their answers and put together a fun little video. Check it out:
