Investigate Vehicles Before Purchase
Purchasing a vehicle is generally one of the largest investments that people make besides a house or property. Cars aren’t cheap so it’s important that you get exactly what you want when making a purchase. It’s also important to make sure that you are purchasing a car that runs great, is worth the price, and will last.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of scams out there with used cars. Some dealers will try to mask problems and some people will even sell vehicles that have liens on them if they think that they can get away with it. Because of these problems, there are apps like InstaVIN that allow you to research things about the vehicle like the vehicles history and title report. The app looks through the government’s title and salvage history through NMVTIS with many brand titles check and verified. The app also shows many other sources of information such as lien/loan information, impound and towing events, insurance records, and much more.
Don’t risk buying a piece of junk or a car tangled up with financial problems and get a quick and affordable history report. The application can be purchased for $6.99 and is free of monthly fees, hidden costs, and subscriptions. One of the best parts about InstaVIN is that it is available for your mobile device so you can get a report anywhere. This is especially great for car dealers and those who make frequent vehicle purchases.
Things to Consider When Getting Window Tint
While many think that window tinting is used just to leave the driver incognito, it can also serve protection for you from the sun’s dangerous rays. Whatever your reason for tinting your windows, there are a couple things to consider when doing it. Window tinting can be done for very affordable prices if you pick the right company to do it.
Window tinting serves several purposes. One of the most common reasons people tint their windows is to block the sun’s rays. These rays can often leave you squinting while driving. Sometimes the sun’s rays can block your vision and cause a wreck. Sun rays can also damage leather and interior color in your car. Many people also tint their windows to prevent greenhouse gases from building up and heating up your car. There’s nothing worse than getting into a 200 degree car in the middle of summer. People also tint their windows to give their car character and to block the general public’s vision of you in the car.
When going to get your window tinted it is important to consider the local laws of tint. It is illegal in many areas to over-tint your car because it can become dangerous while driving. It’s also a good idea to view the tint at night so you will know how dark it will be while you’re driving. Also, look around in your area for the best window tint company. Read their reviews and compare their prices before you get tint installed.
Is It Possible To Get An Auto Loan Even With Bad Credit?
It is an awful feeling and embarrassing when you learn that your car loan application has been denied. Unfortunately in today’s economy, car loan denials are on the rise. The number one reason for an automobile loan getting denied is a bad credit score. Many people don’t even realize they have a problem with their credit because they haven’t kept up with monitoring their own credit score. If you know you have a bad credit score, you must be thinking you will never be able to get a loan to buy that car you desperately need. This is simply not true. Here are some simple steps that you can follow to obtain a bad credit auto loan :
- Get a copy of your credit report which is free to obtain and review it. The credit report will itemize line by line what loans or credit card payments are outstanding and for what amount, or if you defaulted on the loan. You must make sure this information is correct. If something listed is incorrect you may, by law, dispute these claims. You must submit your dispute in writing and show supporting proof of payment for the erroneous information. If the proof of payment of a loan or credit card is supported, this damaging information will be removed from your credit report. This is going to take some time, so don’t wait.
- Next you need to decide if you are going to go to a local dealership and obtain a bad credit loan or if you want to use a financial institution that specializes in these types of loans. A word of caution. Do you homework and shop around. Many times a dealership is going to have higher interest rates and will quickly repossess the car for even a short delay in payment. I call these guys the ‘buy here – pay here’ corner car lot rip off artists, so be careful.
- Financial institutions that specialize in bad credit loans (also known as sub-prime lenders) typically work with many dealerships thus offering you are wider range of cars and prices to choose from. They also provide you with a preapproved loan thus giving you confidence when you walk into a dealership that you won’t be faced with the embarrassment of being turned down. You simply choose your car or truck that is within your loan amount and buy the vehicle you need.
- You need to minimize the number of times you apply for a loan. When you apply for a loan and get turned down, that places another bad mark on your credit score. That is why I feel it is best to use a sub-prime lender that specializes in bad credit loans. There are many to choose from and they will compete for your business by offering you better rates, so don’t be afraid to contact several.
So remember, whether you have bankruptcy, foreclosure, divorce, repossession or have been sent to a collection agency in the past, you can still take advantage of a bad credit auto loan and buy the vehicle you want and need.
Get a Limousine in Miami!
Nothing says class and luxury like a great ride in a limousine. There are tons of different reasons why limo rides may be needed but when you decide to actually get one in the Miami area, there are great companies like MandRlimo.com – Miami limo services that allow you to show up to whatever event and look great while not putting a huge hole in your pocket.
Most people aren’t able to afford limo rides everywhere they go but some do! Listed below are several reasons that limo rides are usually purchased:
Concerts and Sporting Events – A limo ride is great for a group of friends on their way to a concert or sporting event. Most likely, there will be alcohol consumption which prevents those attending from driving. Limos are also large enough to transport everybody at the same time. Limos also make great pictures for large groups of people.
Proms – Limousines have become a traditional ride for those attending prom. If you and your date need a ride or if you are going with a large group of couples, a nice looking limousine is a must!
Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties – Limos are usually the perfect size for a bachelor or bachelorette party. They have also become a traditional ride for many of these types of parties.
Whether you have an actual event to attend or if you just need a nice means of transportation to another location, limo rides are great and are usually very affordable with companies like M and R Limo.
Male or female, the throbbing sound of car engines racing across the silver screen can really get our hearts pumping. And essentially, you don’t need to be a gear head to appreciate the thrill of the chase. Revving engines, screeching tires, handbrake turns and heart stopping near-misses have us oohing and ahhing, and on the edge of our seats. If the death defying chase ends in an explosive crash, or a flight off a cliff edge, so much the better – as long as it’s the baddies who end up in the ensuing fireball.
The skilful stunt drivers (or sometimes the actors themselves), and the magnificent special effects have been delighting and enthralling us for decades – but which are some of the best Hollywood chases? How about these?
James Bond – all of them!
It does seem that James Bond cannot step into a car for a simple trip to the local mall. Every single drive ends up in a high octane chase either along mountain roads with gut wrenching sheer drops or through crowded city streets. Everyone probably has their personal favorite but among the best are in Dr. No, Live and Let Die, Octopussy, and Quantum of Solace – not content with simply driving, Bond duels with helicopters, has cars that turn into submersibles, and fit through impossibly narrow gaps on two wheels.
One of the most iconic chase scenes ever, features the late Steve McQueen, and indeed Bullitt regularly lands at the top of many lists of the best car chases of all time. For a full seven minutes McQueen’s eponymous detective chases two gangsters through the streets of San Francisco at an average of 70mph, and in a way that every car chase scene since has tried to live up to. It’s no wonder the film won the Oscar for Best Editing.
Some movies put the chase at the heart of the action; indeed a chase is the premise of many a rollicking comedy such as the Rat Race, Monte Carlo or Bust, and the iconic Cannonball Run, but just how many of us wish we could emulate The Blues Brothers and drive through a shopping mall.
The girl has it
This is the 21st century and so a shout has to go out for the female of the driving species. Girls feel the need for speed too, and putting Thelma and Louise aside, we can cite Cameron Diaz in Knight and Day, as well as a few Bond girls who have pushed the pedal to the metal – Barbara Carrerra comes to mind, but the accolade for best fast and furious chick behind the wheel surely goes to Angelina Jolie in Wanted, where she fights an adrenaline- fueled duel with a bus in a Dodge Viper, gripping the wheel at 75mph, and still firing weapons.
To infinity and beyond
Ok, so it’s not cars exactly, but one of our first glimpses into how reckless Anakin Skywalker is destined to become, and indeed of our own future travel if sci-fi is the stuff of reality to come, is the lightning-fast speeder pursuit of the assassin Zam Wessell through the ‘streets’ of Corusant. There’s a actually a streak of speed throughout the Stars Wars movies; the pod races on Tatooine, the speeder bike chase in the forest of Endor, the pursuit of the Millennium Falcon by Empire fighters, and the asteroid field chase complete with bounty hunter and sonic bombs, all surely deserve their place in the annals of great Hollywood chases.

Tips On Choosing A Transmission Repair Shop
Transmissions can be one of the most expensive things to get repaired on your vehicle. It is important to make a wise decision when it comes to choosing a transmission shop. Below are multiple things to look for when looking for a mechanic to repair your transmission.
1. Do they have reviews online? Check out their Google+ Maps listsing, Yelp, Merchant Circle etc. There are so many different review sites I can’t even list them here. Just do a search for the business name along with review and you should be able to find everything you are looking for.
2. Do they offer a warranty? Most new transmissions will come with a warranty from the manufacturer. But when it comes to repairs it us up to the transmission shop owner as to what they want to offer. Make sure to ask if it is not listed on their site.
3. How do they make you feel? Call some shops or stop by and visit them. Trust your gut. If you get that weird feeling in your gut or you feel something is not right, walk away.
4. Ask family and friends? Ask your family and friends for referrals. This is often where most people start. But if the above does not help you in finding a good mechanic then ask your friends.
There you have it. Three things you can do to find a good transmission repair shop.
Engineers have always played shuffle around big companies and although they have come up with great designs in the past they were burned at the stake by the accounting department because of costs and their ideas were squashed out like a bug. The fact is that now we have customers and gearheads that are really getting sick of seeing their paychecks going to oil companies. I for one am one of those customers and in order to get to work I have to set aside more and more each month to deal with the rising oil prices. Let’s face it the design of 2013 cars needs to get us more miles to the gallon and that is exactly what they are doing. We are seeing companies wrangle in their bean counters because let’s face it, when accountants build cars they build pieces of shit that break down and actually cost the company more money, for example take the Dodge and Plymouth neon that instead of using the head gasket the engineers wanted the accounting department used a traditional one that would save them a few dollars until buyers engines leaked worst than the titanic and because of that the company had to pay for mechanics to replace all the leaking cylinder head gaskets which cost the company a massive amount of money. So for new cars 2013 let’s just let the experts do what they have become experts at and we will have a better vehicle because of it.
Awesome Paint Jobs for Cars
Since we’ve entered an innovative era, everybody’s creativity is showing, especially when it comes to automobiles. Automobiles now come in all sorts of sizes, shapes and styles and their paint jobs are getting very creative and impressive as well. Some cars are literally becoming art murals while some have pretty impressive marketing ads on them as well.
Some of the recent car paintings I have seen would blow your mind! There are car paintings with Obama on it that look just like one of his campaign posters. I’m also seeing a lot of cars painted that look exactly like wild animals and beautiful cars that range in a variety of painting such as naked women to awesome graffiti that you would see on a bridge.
Along with paintings on cars, there are some pretty impressive new colors of paint for cars. There’s the new “Chameleon” colored paint that changes colors when you view it from different angles. Pearl color is another impressive paint that gives a variety of sparkled colors or Metallic paints that give an aluminum-like sparkles. While the paintings can often get pretty expensive depending on the difficulty and artist, some of these custom-color paint jobs can be pretty inexpensive. If you’re looking for something different, get a painting for you car or check out these new original colors.
According to the latest Road Crash Statistics, more than 1,00,000 people die each year in the unfortunate road mishaps only in the United States. Fortunate are those who continue to drive for many years without causing or being involved in an accident. Getting involved in or become a spectator of an accident is an unfortunate event that we all would like to erase from our memory cells. However, it is equally important to know what can we do in a car crash. How can we help the victims or claim car insurance?
The most important thing to check whether any occupant in your car is injured or not. In the case or injury, proper first aid performance including CPR and nursing the wounds (in case of serious injury) while waiting for the ambulance to arrive is most important. After this, you can politely ask the driver to show you his driving license and if he asks for your license, don’t hesitate to give him yours.
Never forget to place warning triangles at the appropriate distance to avoid further occurrence of accidents. Note down the details of the driver including the car number (in case, he runs away with his car) and other details such as the names of the insurance companies of the drivers, the policy number and the expiry date of the policy.
You should not move the vehicle from the accident spot until the arrival of the law enforcing agencies. You can also take the picture of the accident scene with your phone camera or make a movie if you possess a Handicam.
After preliminary investigations of the police, you should immediately inform your agent or company to claim car insurance. Normally, it should be done within 24 hour limit of the accident. After this, your insurer will issue a claim number and assign an officer to deal with the case. In the case of unfortunate death or serious injury, the police often detains the vehicle for further inspection.
After that, the insurance company will direct you to a garage of your choice to determine the damage of the car. This is the basic step before determining the amount to be paid and if the damage is less, the company can direct you to repair the vehicle contrary to the claim made by you.
In all circumstances, you should never forget to claim Carsurance auto insurance.
