Mercedes-Benz Ranked #1 For Customer Retention & Service!

Saturday, November 28th, 2009


One thing that I have noticed about the automotive industry is the fact that customer service has gone down immensely.  Customer retention has also gone to the dogs lately, however — Mercedes-Benz is one company that is known for not only their customer service but also known for their customer retention.  That is why they are ranked #1 by J.D Powers & Associates for customer retention.

Mercedes-Benz is definitely one brand of car that is not only getting better and better every single year but I can certainly tell the difference when I go into a Mercedes-Benz dealer versus going into any other dealership.  The customer service is incredible and that alone is powerful.

So if you are looking for a brand new car this season, I highly recommend going into a Mercedes-Benz dealership!

The Sleek, Sexy Corvette Stingray Concept

Monday, November 16th, 2009

Oh man. Ohhh man, Corvette Stingrays. Can it ever get any better? Uh, yeah, duh. Of course it can! How? The new Corvette Stingray concept, that’s how. General Motors recently revealed their new concept at the auto show in Chicago. This one is different from most concepts, in that General Motors do not really care a whit about public opinion. The real purpose of the concept is because the car is a character in the blockbuster hit, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Folks who have pay per view channels and haven’t seen the flick yet, it’s available now and I advise you to rent it. This little beauty is featured as Sideswipe, and while everyone knows Bumblee Bee and Optimus Prime steal the show, it’s still worth it to see this baby in action.

Let’s just hope Sideswipe the Stingray makes an appearance in the next Transformers, huh?

China’s Changan Auto Brings out a New Concept

Sunday, November 1st, 2009

Changan Auto is one of the five top domestic automakers in China. The company recently revealed their Changan e301 crossover concept. The vehicle was developed right in house and has proven to garner a lot of interest in a relatively short amount of time.

As far as its styling goes, the e301 concept takes quite a few cues from various Citroen models. It is classified as a sports utility vehicle, one that has an innovative and even fashionable design — so, clearly, it is being marketed towards younger drivers. It features an asymmetrical deck, a lower air intake like a fang, and split DLO.

It will be powered by a hydrogen fuel sell propulsion system, as well as two types of hybrid powertrains.
