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).
When it comes to purchasing a vehicle, there are two popular options: leasing and buying. Both options come with their own benefits and drawbacks, so when you think about leasing vs buying a car, it's less about which option is the best and more about which option is the best for you.
Pressing on a vehicle's brakes causes the tires to slow down, and eventually come to a stop. This is an expectation most drivers know very well, and they depend on it regularly. However, anyone who's familiar with winter driving in Minnesota knows that's not always the case. The majority of midwest drivers have a pretty clear memory of the first time they pressed their brake pedal and the car didn't react - I know I do. Follow these five winter driving safety tips to increase your odds of staying safe on the road.
There is a myriad of details to consider when making a decision about your next vehicle purchase. Beyond the make, model, color, and gas mileage of your next new dream car, you also have to figure out what to do with your last dream car while paying for the new vehicle in your life. That is when you have to answer the question of whether it is best to trade your car in at the dealership or to sell it to a third party. The good news is that there is no wrong answer, but deciding might lead to a severe case of analysis paralysis, so here are a few of the pros of each approach.
When you love your car, it's easy to see it through rose colored glasses, disregarding what's wrong in favor of what's right. But at some point, there's no way around it: when repair costs are too high, gas prices have you down, and you're tired of leaving your ride at the mechanic multiple times a month, you need a new car. If you're seeing any of these six signs, it may be time to invest in an updated vehicle.
Beyond providing a way to get to and from our destinations, we look to vehicles to provide safety and the peace-of-mind that comes along with it. And even though it’s sometimes easier to just not think about it, auto accidents do happen. Vehicles with high safety ratings are more likely to protect the drivers and passengers if an accident occurs. Which is why I’ve compiled a few of the top SUV safety picks for 2016.
