When shopping for a car, being a stalker is highly recommended by Mojo Motors. In fact, it’s the best way to find the best price on the best used car or truck. When you are not shopping for a car, however, being a stalker is not recommended.
We already talked about how to use Mojo Motors while shopping for a car, but we decided to write an alternative post replacing ‘Follow’ with words like stalking. Sure, ‘Follow’ is our word of choice on the website, but stalk is a suitable synonym and a bit more interesting too. [keep reading]
As a former Internet Director, I understand the “I need more leads!” mindset that can permeate a sales environment. It is engrained in us by our management, the manufacturers and of course, third party providers whose businesses exist to generate leads. In the world of car sales, the lead is gold. Honestly, I think the time has come for a change in that mentality. Leads, as we know them, are slowly fading out of style.
Customers are smarter than we’re giving them credit for. They approach buying a car armed with even more information than they had the last time they bought a car. This means that they are less likely to give out their information so that you can contact them. They know how that process works and don’t want to be subjected to relentless sales calls and inbox spam. [keep reading]
Great photos of cars exist all over the web and we made a post about some our favorites you can read here. Another great resource for car photos is DeviantArt. If you’re an artist, you’re probably very familiar with the popular website. If you’re not, all you need to know is DeviantArt has some of the most unique pictures and car art you can find on the web.
In many cases, cars aren’t searchable by make or model so using DeviantArt to find a great car pic is like shopping at a thrift shop or TJ Maxx. It can take a little while so patience is a virtue. We’ve done the work for you and have included some our favorite photos after the jump. [keep reading]
You’ve read the car reviews online. You’ve talked to friends. You’ve read dealership reviews. You’ve talked to friends again. You’ve taken cars for test drives. More test drive. And even more test drives. You know exactly how much to pay, how you’re going to pay and if you can get a warranty. There’s just one lingering problem. Are you buying the right car?
No one wants buyers remorse, especially on what will probably be one of the biggest purchases of most people’s lives. This is a big deal and it’s OK to be dramatic.
So how will you know if you are you buying the right car? It’s all about comfort and how the car makes you feel. It’s truly that simple. [keep reading]
Are cars with personality, charm and charisma dead? Jason Harper from Bloomberg seems to think so. In his recent article, Harper asks “In this age of mass production and global distribution, have we seen the last taillights of cars with personality? Where are the oddball autos that appeal to only a heartfelt few?”
Cars that Harper digs from the “good old days” are the Citroen DS-19, the Morris Minor Traveller or the Buick Riviera. Sure, those were cool cars, but isn’t it natural for people to look fondly at the past? It’s why after every Super Bowl, people say the commercials were disappointing inferring some sort of benchmark was set in the past. People were more wholesome too, our country was stronger, gas was cheaper, Adam Sandler made funnier movies and cars had more personality.
To his credit, Harper does believe electric cars from Fiskar and Tesla are a sign of change. Their interiors, their curves and wacky details have stimulated excitement in the car industry. Nonetheless, beautiful design aren’t just limited to electric cars. It could be argued a whole host of quirky and charming cars can be found at a dealership near you. Here are a few. [keep reading]
Buying a car can be rough, but it doesn’t have to be. I recently received a call from my sister-in-law because her car died and was in need of a vehicle. She wanted a Honda Pilot and had a price in mind, however she was having a hard time finding a dealership she felt comfortable in.
She was stressed out had walked out of 2 dealerships. In one day. Before 11AM. I shared a few tips with her and by the end of the week, she was super happy with the purchase. Here are my car buying tips. [keep reading]
I am an Asian American male in my mid twenties with a mild Ford Lightning obsession, more specifically the 2nd generation model, which was produced between 1999 and 2004. To quote the urban dictionary, the Lightning is “predominantly owned by rednecks and white trash.” I want to change this.
If you read my previous blog post, you know that I liked and bought cars for pretty stupid reasons. Nothing changes when it comes to the Lightning and here are three stupid reasons.
In Dale Earnhardt’s 30+ year racing career, he drove a lot of cars. Everyone remembers the black #3 Chevrolet Goodwrench car or the #3 Chevrolet Wrangler car, but there were others. Oh yes, there were many others. Here are some of the best and coolest stock cars ever driven by the legendary Dale Earnhardt.
#3 Wheaties Car
Dale Earnhardt drove this Wheaties car at The Winston in 1997 (currently known as the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race) when he finished second to Jeff Gordon. Team owner Richard Childress said The Winston was one of Earnhardt’s favorites because “it was short, paid a huge purse and we didn’t have to worry about getting in trouble or be worried about the championship.” [keep reading]
Hybrids and electric cars aren’t cheap. The Toyota Prius starts at $32,000 new and the Chevrolet Volt can cost more than $40,000 new. Prices at the gas station aren’t cheap either. The recurring question you continue to ask yourself might be, should I buy a hybrid? Or, should I buy an electric car?
It depends all about your driving habits. How much do you drive in a day? Where do you typically drive? How much time can you spare for a charge? Our friends over at Sixt created a infographic to help you decide if going green makes sense. [keep reading]
