FCA US LLC Safety Technology

Last May, FCA US LLC and Waymo expanded on their fleet of 62,000 Chrysler Pacifica hybrid minivans for a self-driving car service. While many people think that these vehicles are a thing of the future, there are features that are actually considered self-driving technology. To help you understand these innovative features, the auto experts at Monroe Superstore break it down for you.

Lane-Keeping Assist

Lane-keeping assist works proactively to keep your car not only in the lane you’re driving, but also in the center. If you ever guide your car out of a detected lane without signaling your intention to exit it, the lane-keeping system will warn you with an alert. If you don’t respond, it will gently tug your wheel and guide your car back into the center of the lane. Though the steering creates a slight tug, you can effortlessly hold your course if you desire, as the system will not take the control away from you.

Automatic Parallel Parking

If you live in the city, parallel parking can be a hassle. This is why the automatic parallel parking feature available in many 2019 models is brilliant. The self-parking system automatically identifies an appropriate parallel parking spot and steers the car seamlessly into the spot for you. Once you engage this system and switch your car into reverse, it turns the wheel while you control the accelerator and brakes, making parallel parking a breeze.

Automatic Braking System

Generally made to activate at fast, highway speeds, this safety technology automatically engages your car’s brake system to avoid a potential crash if you fail to do so.

You have a lot riding on your four wheels. These new technologies make it easier than ever to protect the ones you love while on the road. Contact our Dodge dealers serving Toledo, OH to learn more!

Jeeps Fest is Right Around the Corner

Back by popular demand, it’ll be an all American day in Toledo, Ohio, and Monroe, Michigan August 10-12 as the Jeep Fest returns after a successful debut. Sponsoring the Welcome Party at 3:30 p.m. Friday, August 10 is Monroe Superstore, which is also co-hosting the event this year. It will bring to life an 18 obstacle course, live music, giveaways and a weekend party that could host more than 60,000 in Toledo alone.

The interest in the weekend is evident as three months before Jeep Fest, organizers said twice as much money was raised as they targeted.

“The response locally and nationally has been incredible,” said Kevin Mullan, director of partnership development for Toledo Jeep Fest.

Three hours after the kickoff, Oliver Hazard takes the stage with some live music followed by KC and Sunshine Band in Toledo.

The next day is the All-Jeep Parade at 11 a.m. in Toledo. From then until 6 p.m. there will be an All Jeep Car Show showing past and possible future Jeeps, a vendor area for Jeep enthusiasts, live music, food trucks and beer gardens in both locations. At 4:30 p.m. the 2018 Raffle Drawing and Official Commemoration is scheduled. The raffle is for a 24-month lease on a Jeep Wrangler. At 7 p.m. will be the Dueling Pianos Under the Stars at Hensville Park in Toledo.

Sunday, August 12, starts out early with a 4-mile Run and 1-mile walk sponsored by Run Toledo getting underway at 8:30 a.m. Then from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. the park will be filled with Jeep infested fun.

Tire Care Tips with Monroe Superstore

Hello and happy summer from all your friends here at Monroe Superstore. Of course, we’re the friendly Dodge dealer serving Toledo, OH and your one-stop shop for all your automotive needs. The summer months also mean specific kinds of service and maintenance to ensure that you’re getting the most out of your vehicle. Today we’ll share some great tips about tire care to help keep you safe and your vehicle at peak performance.

Many people assume that tire care is down to just simply maintaining proper inflation and having enough tread. While both of those are true, there is more detail to consider. For instance, perhaps you’re driving a 2018 Dodge Challenger and you’re ready to hit the open road on a summertime adventure. It’s crucial that your tires aren’t under-inflated or over-inflated for many reasons.

When tire pressure is too low or too high, you compromise safety, fuel efficiency, ride comfort, and handling. Under-inflated tires can increase fuel consumption and decrease lifespan. Conversely, over-inflated tires have more contact with the road, which can cause premature wear.

You’ll want to regularly check the PSI on your tires, especially when there are temperature swings. For every 10-degree change in temperature, tires lose or gain 1 PSI. You may also find that the PSI changes after you’ve been driving for awhile. This is a result of the tires heating up and is perfectly normal; just be sure to check the pressure before you hit the road.

Monroe Superstore offers a great service center where we can assist with all your tire-related services and address any questions that you may have. We hope you found these tips helpful, and we’d love to talk to you more in person here at our Chrysler dealership, Monroe Superstore.
