2018 Chrysler Pacifica Named Family Car of the Year

Plenty Of Room For All

Family Car Of The Year

When it comes to family cars, nothing does it better than the minivan. Despite many people negative attitudes towards the segment, once you experience the ease of loading kids into a vehicle with sliding doors, you never want to go back to anything else. That is why it is no surprise that the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica was named Cars.com’s Family Car of the Year.

North American International Auto Show

Cars.com gave out this award at its 2018 Best of Awards hosted during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit early this year. According to Cars.com editors, “Chrysler has a history of stuffing its minivans with innovations, and the Pacifica is no exception. It’s an achievement in practicality, from the improved Stow ‘n Go fold-flat seats to the available rear entertainment system that impresses even versus mobile devices.”

More Technology. Lower Price

The Pacifica was just introduced for the 2017 model year and gets even better this year with more standard safety features, lower pricing for the base model, and more technology in the form of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. To earn the Family Car of the Year award, the Pacifica had to demonstrate value, innovation, and quality. All three it does in spades.

Dos and Don’ts of Driving in Winter

Do’s and Don’t’s of Driving in Winter | Gary Wood CDJ | Aurora, MO

Winter is arguably the most hazardous time of year to be out on the road. If you’re out driving in winter, here are some tips and tricks for avoiding getting yourself into trouble when slick roads and extreme temperatures are involved.

DO…

Get a comprehensive routine check-up on your vehicle. Make sure all fluids are topped off or replaced, and have your service tech fill up your tires, too.

…Have your battery tested to make sure it’s at max capacity. Low temperatures reduce its functionality.

…Keep your gas tank half-full. You never know when you’ll need fuel for an emergency.

…Have jumper cables on hand at all times.

…Keep an emergency kit in your vehicle.

DON’T…

…Drive if you don’t have to, especially if there’s snow or ice on the ground.

…Stop. If you can, avoid stopping on hills, and perform rolling stops when possible. If your vehicle comes to a full stop on ice, it’s difficult to get rolling again.

…Take sharp or fast turns.

…Blindly trust other drivers. If you assume other drivers are competent on hazardous roads, you put yourself at risk of getting hit.

Be careful when driving in winter. If you follow this advice, you’ll be prepared for taking on most hazards during the colder months of the year. If you do need to prepare your vehicle for winter’s worst, stop by Gary Wood CDJR as soon as possible.
