New England

Snowtober strikes the Northeast

Snowtober Noreaster Car Accident Image Mojo MotorsThe nor’easter storm that hit New England over the weekend has officially ruined Halloween 2011, left millions of people powerless, millions more cold and a whole lot of damage. It’s like Hurricane Irene all over again but instead of rain and wind, it was snow, wind and ice. Some lucky cars made it out of Snowtober alive and some cars didn’t. If you happen to find your car under a tree limb, perhaps it’s time you think about buying a used car from Mojo Motors. If you happen to be the driver of the car in the photo to the right, however, perhaps it’s time you turn in your license and give up on driving indefinitely.

Make the jump to see some of the other unfortunate automobile victims of Snowtober.

Mojo Motors makes moves on About.com

Mojo Motors has swagger imageWe’re about to toot our horn here so be prepared because About.com automotive journalist Keith Griffin recently published a blog post featuring Mojo Motors as a new way to buy used cars. He wrote Mojo Motors, “takes online used car buying to a level of comfort and finality that seem to be missing from other sites.” We agree. He also mentioned when he enters the used car market in a year and a half, he’ll be sure to check out the Mojo Motor inventory of used car listings. Now that’s what we’re talking ’bout.

Be sure to check out Griffin’s other About.com used car guides offering great advice on buying a used vehicle. The Mojo Motors Blog had a post a few weeks ago called Mojo tips before going to the dealership, but we’ve been one-upped. Griffin has got guides on pretty much everything used-car related.
