New Innovative Car Features

 

The world of cars and the automotive industry is one of constant change, growth, and technological evolution.  Think about it; we’ve gone from carburetors to fuel injection and from fuel injection to DFI.  Generators were replaced with alternators, coil packs and DIS replaced distributors, and those old, rear drum brakes are a thing of the past thanks to rear disc brakes.  Have you stopped and thought about solar-powered vehicles and Hybrids?  How advanced is the technology for those?  Now, there have even been several tested prototypes and concepts for flying cars!  Every year, the automotive world amazes and embraces us with a new technological advancement.

Have you taken a look at some of the aftermarket stereo systems available for cars today!?  Stereos are fitted with television screens, USB ports, remote controls, touch-screen capabilities, compatible for playing DVD and/or CDs, and let’s not forget their streaming capabilities like XM, Sirius, and Pandora—absolutely incredible! Even the tires and rims on cars have changed dramatically over time.  Remember, in the ol’ days, Rally tires were the thing to have!? Not anymore, we’ve graduated to the fancy, custom, chrome rims and rubberband-thin low-profile tires.  Look at all the different design patterns and types of custom, chrome rims available today—some of them are even painted or equipped with colorful ‘inserts’ that further enhance their appeal—and who can forget ‘Spinners’?—Those were insane!  Well, today, we’ll look at more innovative features of today’s cars.

 

Park  Assist

Perhaps one of the biggest innovative we’ve seen more recently in cars today that’s spreading like wildfire is the new Park Assist feature.  Remember how everyone hated the parallel parking portion of your road test for your driver’s license?  Remember how everyone still hates to parallel park today, no matter how long you’ve been driving?  And remember how we all used to say we wish the used car could just parallel park itself?  Yeah, well, um—now it can.

Park Assist, IPAS (Intelligent Parking Assist System), or APGS (Advanced Parking Guidance System), as it’s commonly referred today, allows the car to actually steer itself in parallel parking using an in-dash video screen, and through a series of cameras, sensors, and a drop of information from the driver.  While this truly innovative feature has seen recent success and positive feedback; it isn’t as new as most consumers would think—Park Assist has actually existed for more than 10 years, 12 years to be precise.

Japan, headquarters to Toyota, was the first to develop and employ the Park Assist feature and technology via their 2003 PriusThen, in 2006, an updated version was unveiled to a small market outside of Japan for the first time—no, the U.S. was not included in that small market.  Finally, in 2009, the United States and other parts of Europe and Asia were allowed in on the secret.  Today, major automakers such as Ford, Mazda, and Dodge, all utilize the Park Assist feature in their vehicles.

 

Pedestrian  Night  Vision

No, this isn’t something from Call of Duty, but you can say the automotive industry has definitely learned something from the military.  Not only have they learned from it, they’ve also implemented it into their vehicles.  Much like the Park Assist feature, this technology isn’t necessarily new; it’s just now becoming well-known, advertised, and accepted by and to the public. 

Cadillac first engineered the Night Vision feature in 2000, then, in 2005 and 2010, Mercedes improved it and offered it the E-Class.  It was also available in the 2009 BMW 7-Series.  The Night Vision feature marks an approaching pedestrian in red on an in-dash monitor.  If the car gets too close to the pedestrian, a second indication and/or alarm will flash on a Heads-Up display equipped within the vehicle’s front windshield.  Pretty cool, huh!?

 

Automotive  Wi-fi  Hotspots

Okay, you can’t say you didn’t see this one coming, especially with all the technological advances the automotive world has spewed out within the last 5 to 10 years—this was only a matter of time.  This one is pretty cut-and-dry.  Autonet Mobile, the first network of its kind, allows your car to become a ‘hotspot’ by mounting a router in a secured and discreet location within your car.  It allows 3G internet access with no regards to cell towers or tunnels.  Ford and Chrysler have already jumped on this feature with their UConnect Web and Ford Works Solutions Systems as they, like the rest of us, highly anticipate the arrival of full-fledged internet and web-surfing capabilities from a car.

Ride Now Motors – Customer Service

It is a shame that we now perceive talking to a human straight away when we call a large corporation ‘Good Customer Service’, or refreshing. Long gone are the days where talking to a telephone operator was standard procedure. I’m sure that there are people out there who are pleased with that situation, however at Ride Now Motors we feel that 99% of the population would much rather talk to a human being, rather than a faceless, electronic voiced entity.

Well, we want to work with that 99%. Buying a car, new or used, is a big investment, normally coming second to a house purchase. It is our aim to not only have superior sales staff to help you find and finance your next vehicle, but amazing support staff to ensure that you are happy with your vehicle, long term.

We take great measures to ensure the car and trucks that appear on our sales lots are fully inspected prior to going on sale. We have worked incredibly hard to define our buying processes to ensure that we are selling the most reliable, reputable vehicles in the marketplace today. It is our intention to keep the attention to detail going in our after purchase care of our customers.

Regardless of the precautions we take in purchasing and preparing our vehicles, something can, or will go wrong during the time that you own the vehicle. That, we just can’t help. During the financing period our customers could face a wide range of financial difficulties or life events. That, they can’t help. What we can help however is how we deal with issues, as and when they do arise.

Ride Now Motors approaches their customer service in the same as we approach our sales initiatives, in the respect that we like to be a little bit different. We have a vast amount of experience to call upon as a result of the thousands of cars we have sold and the many years we have spent in the industry. We know that bad things can happen to good people, more importantly, we are also aware that most challenges in life are short term at best.

We are proud to have staff dedicated to work with our customers throughout the process of resolving challenges. We understand that being passed from department to department, and associate to associate, can be very, very frustrating indeed. Being able to contact one person and deal with them directly is something that we felt our customers would find incredibly advantageous. Sounds like common sense? We thought so as well.

We don’t have strict policies for how we deal with different issues either. Each challenge is unique to that customer and categorizing them prior to discussing the situation with them. Does this mean that we will always be able to help? No. As wonderful as that would be, it just isn’t realistic. Treating our customers with respect and trying to help IS realistic however.

No one aspect of a customers experience in purchasing a used car is going to make it exceptional. At Ride Now Motors we believe that it takes a combination of factors that come together and result in the amazing reviews that we receive on a daily basis.

Buy Here, Pay Here Dealers Matter

 

How many times have you driven past a ‘Buy Here, Pay Here’ auto dealer and thought to yourself, “yeah right?”  Probably quite a few times, huh!?  Well, there’s an old saying; “Don’t knock it before you try it”—heard that one, right?  Within the last 5 years, Buy Here, Pay Here dealers have become the “go-to” source for used car shoppers.  Due to a growing clientele, BHPH auto dealers have also experienced a significant rise in profits.  A majority of the car-buying population and experts believe BHPH dealers and lots are ‘rip-offs’ and an abomination to the automotive sales industry due to the lack of quality vehicles, high interest rates, and bi-weekly payments.  Despite popular belief, Buy Here, Pay Here dealers can actually be quite beneficial, so before we ‘knock-it’, let’s take a look at why we should ‘try-it’.

 

Aids  Credit-and-Financially-Challenged  Consumers

Perhaps the biggest reason Buy Here, Pay Here dealerships are experiencing a growth spurt is because they go above and beyond to cater to the ‘challenged’ consumer.  BHPH dealers exclusively target the credit-challenged and financially-challenged consumer market.  These are the consumers with ‘less-than-perfect-credit’ for whatever reasons; maybe they have a withstanding repo or below-average credit score.  These consumers are usually the 9-to-5ers that work and live paycheck-to-paycheck, desperately fighting to stay afloat, and trying to stretch every hard-earned dollar as far as they could.  By the time these consumers find their way to a Buy Here, Pay Here dealer; they’ve already been declined, denied, laughed-at, and shooed away by the big-name dealers, and often feel that they’re out of options or that no one can or will help them.  BHPH dealers openly welcome these consumers, and in most cases, are able to find a dependable used car for the buyer.

 

 

Lower  Down  Payments

Another great reason for choosing to purchase a car from a Buy Here, Pay Here dealer is that they typically have lower down payments, which allows you, the consumer, to get into your new, used car just a little bit faster.  The average, or major car dealership usually requires a minimum of $1500 or more as a down payment—sometimes this is even with a ‘trade-in’.  The average BHPH dealer only requires approximately $500 to $1000; with the $1000 requirement only necessary in rare cases.  Many BHPH will even ‘hold’ a car for you with only a $100 security deposit, which can later be applied towards your $500 down payment—not bad, huh!?

 

In-House  Financing  &  Payments

Now, this is the reason Buy Here, Pay Here dealers are called, ‘Buy Here, Pay Here’, and perhaps the primary reason for their increasing clientele.  Unlike the major auto dealers; Chevy, Toyota, Ford, GMC; just to name a few, BHPH dealers have their own, on-site financing department and doesn’t require mediation with a 3rd-Party lender.  This enables them to make their own terms which cater specifically to each individual consumer’s needs.  There is a slight downside to this; most BHPH dealers require bi-weekly payments instead of monthly payments like their big-name counterparts.  This is the reason many critics argue that Buy Here, Pay Here car lots are a rip-off because you pay twice a month for a car that is ‘allegedly’ not worth it.  Seemingly, what they fail to realize this is the norm for any industry that offers assistance to credit and financially challenged consumers.  Last time we checked—the credit card industry does the same thing—do they not have higher interest rates for ‘high-risk’ account holders?  Slightly higher payments are common knowledge among BHPH customers.

 

The  Bottom  Line

The bottom line is this—Buy Here, Pay Here dealers are doing better in sales and demand than their big-name rivalries because they are home to the ‘troubled-consumer’ market that no one else wants—which just so happens to be a hungry, thriving market.  There will always be ‘naysayers’ and critics to speak against anything; supermarkets, a restaurant chain, Obamacare—or whatever, so you just have to ignore them, do your own research, and make a decision for yourself.  No matter what the critics say—the end result is that Buy Here, Pay Here dealers are helping the people that truly need it and has been turned away by everyone else—something the ‘big-rigs’ may want to try.
