How to Make the Most Out of Your Road Trip

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich.,–– Planning on traveling with family or friends soon? Being prepared is the best way to eliminate stress and make your trip hassle-free! Make sure you know how to make the most out of your road trip this summer by following some handy tips we've put together for before, during, and after your getaway. Whether you're traveling around Michigan or heading out of state, these helpful tips will keep your passengers entertained and make long drives not seem so bad.

Before the Road Trip


How to Make the Most Out of Your Road Trip

  • Calculate Gas Costs: Using a website like AAA's Gas Calculator, will help you estimate how much a round-trip journey to your destination will cost and how to plan pit stops accordingly. This will also serve as an aid in setting your budget for your road trip, saving you both time and money!
  • Purchase a Car Charger: This may seem like a no-brainer, and you may already own one, but purchasing a car charger can keep you prepared in the event of an emergency. You can also use it to recharge any forms of entertainment that run low on battery for your passengers, too.
  • Create a Car Caddy: To make things easier on yourself, create a car caddy before you leave! This will keep all of your things organized and easily accessible at any time.
  • Have Your Vehicle Inspected: Traveling long distances can take a toll on your vehicle, especially if you haven't had your oil changed or tires rotated recently. Schedule an appointment with us to have your vehicle looked at before you hit the road to make sure it's good to go!

During the Road Trip


How to Make the Most Out of Your Road Trip

  • Make a Great Playlist: Have everyone pick 5-10 songs they'd like to hear on the drive and build a playlist full of everyone's musical tastes. You can even listen to it after the road trip to remember all the fun you had!
  • Keep an Open Agenda: Write down a list of destinations you'd like to visit on your road trip, but don't be afraid to stray away from your initial plan! The best road trips are the ones that never go according to plan. Plus, taking a detour can lead to unexpected fun!
  • Create a List of Games: Get a pen and paper and jot down some road trip games for everyone to enjoy! You could play hangman, roadside bingo, 20 questions, or other games to keep everyone occupied and entertained.
  • Pack a Lot of Snacks: To minimize pit stops, save some extra cash, and reduce rumbling stomachs, load your vehicle up with plenty of snacks to keep your passengers full and happy!

After the Road Trip


How to Make the Most Out of Your Road Trip

  • Create a Photo Album: Don't forget to take plenty of pictures (after all, a picture is worth a thousand words). Once you get back, develop all the photos you took and put them in a nice photo album for everyone to enjoy!
  • Keep a Journal: Document every day of the journey so that you can relive every moment when you get back. You can even include postcards of destinations you stopped at, photos, and more for a personal and creative touch.
  • Make Different Stops: While you're driving home, instead of stopping at the same locations you did when you made your journey to your destination, take a different route or stop off somewhere else!
  • Unpack As Soon As Possible: The longer you leave your luggage unpacked, the more likely you are to procrastinate. Getting it done right away will make things easier and save you the trouble of dealing with it all later.

Turn your road trip from painful to painless with this handy guide! You'll be able to enjoy more time on vacation, save some extra money, and keep distractions to a minimum while you drive. Knowing how to make the most out of your road trip will make driving less of a chore and more of a fun experience for both you and your passengers. Many people believe that it's the journey and not the destination that makes road trips so worthwhile. Now that you're prepared, you can enjoy the journey just as much as anyone else! Make sure you get your vehicle inspected before you leave to make sure it's good to go for your trip, no matter how far away it may be. Don't forget to check out our summer car care tips as well to make sure your car is ready to hit the road!

Ice Cream Flavors Unique to Michigan

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich.,–– July is National Ice Cream Month! The warm and sunny weather make it the perfect time to indulge on everyone's favorite sweet treat. Michigan is home to many things: cereal, the automotive industry, and the Great Lakes, but did you know that it's also home to some one-of-a-kind ice cream flavors, too? We'll be taking a look at several ice cream flavors unique to Michigan and showing you some of the best ice cream the Mitten has to offer! You might be surprised to learn how many flavors, both new and old, are actually from Michigan.

Superman


Ice Cream Flavors Unique to Michigan

No matter a person's age, superman ice cream always seems to be a fan favorite! The red, yellow, and blue color and trifecta of flavors is renowned around the Midwest as a must-have tasty treat. Superman ice cream originated in Detroit, created by Stroh's during the Prohibition Era in the 1920s. Since then, Superman has become every Michigander's favorite flavor, becoming so popular that it's spread to Wisconsin, Illinois, and even Ontario!

Blue Moon



Blue Moon ice cream is another Midwest classic known for its one-of-a-kind flavor. In fact, Blue Moon is such a unique flavor that it's almost impossible to describe! To some people, it may taste fruity, but to others, it tastes sweet. It's a unique flavor to everyone! The origins of Blue Moon ice cream are also a hot topic in the ice cream world. While some people say it originated in Milwaukee in the 1940s, others claim that it was invented in South Haven, Michigan, at Sherman's Ice Cream. No matter where it's from, you'll be sure to enjoy every bite of Blue Moon!

Tiger Traxx



What's better than watching baseball? Eating baseball-themed ice cream, of course! Fun fact: the Detroit Tigers are the only team in Major League Baseball with an ice cream flavor unique to them. Combining vanilla ice cream, a thick layer of fudge, and chocolate-covered pretzel "baseballs", Tiger Traxx is sure to hit a home run with anyone! Whether you're enjoying a game at home or having a blast at the ballpark, you can find Tiger Traxx just about anywhere, courtesy of Hudsonville Ice Cream.

Grand Hotel Summer Celebration



Inspired by the Grand Hotel of Mackinac Island, Grand Hotel Summer Celebration, another unique flavor served up by Hudsonville Ice Cream, packs a Northern Michigan punch in its flavor. Combining raspberry and blueberry sherbet with vanilla ice cream, this red, white, and blue blend will leave your taste buds longing to sit along the Mackinac Island shore. Just sit back and relax as you enjoy this tasty summer treat!

Boston Cooler



While Boston Coolers aren't necessarily an ice cream flavor, they're one of Michigan's most unique sweet treats! The Boston Cooler, originating in southeast Michigan got its name from its home, the Boston Boulevard area of Detroit. Combining the unique Michigan Vernor's ginger ale with vanilla ice cream, this Motor City special is a must-have in the warm months. You can find them at most ice cream stores, make them yourself, or wait till the Comeback Cooler Detroit-themed ice cream is released in the fall!

Celebrate National Ice Cream Month in style with these ice cream flavors unique to Michigan! From Blue Moon to Boston Coolers, the Mitten has America's favorite dessert covered in all categories. If your sweet tooth isn't satisfied yet, or you simply want to try making these flavors on your own, check out our "Delicious" board on Pinterest for recipes of all kinds!

How to Increase Your Gas Mileage

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich.,–– If you love driving as much as we do, but hate spending so much time and money at the gas station, we've got a solution for you! Gas prices are extremely unpredictable: they frequently rise and fall. Learn how to increase your gas mileage so that you can reel in the savings at the pump and extend the life of your vehicle! Keeping your vehicle's mileage in check will improve the vitality of engine components, putting less stress on the engine and allowing you to enjoy your vehicle for a longer period of time! In order to do so, we've put together a list of tips that'll help maximize your car's fuel economy.

How to Increase Your Gas Mileage

1. Take Your Foot Off the Gas Pedal


This may seem like a no-brainer, but it's a tough habit to break. Pushing down hard on the gas pedal, or "flooring it" as some may say, can severely increase the stress on your engine and significantly reduce your gas mileage. If you drive over 65mph on a regular basis, you can lose up to 15% of your total gas mileage. While you're driving in the city, reducing your braking on your vehicle will allow you to maximize the fuel that has been exhausted, allowing you to coast along and improve your mileage the whole time.

2. Turn Off Your AC


Another great way to improve your vehicle's mileage is to turn off your air conditioning. While many auto experts claim that keeping your windows rolled down creates resistance that slows down your vehicle, keeping your AC on drains fuel at a much quicker rate. If you can stand the heat, maximize your gas mileage by keeping your windows up and your AC off. If you need to cool off, roll your windows down to circulate the air in your vehicle!

3. Use Cruise Control Frequently


Cruise control is a very useful tool, especially on longer road trips. You can get the most out of a full tank of gas by keeping a consistent speed while you drive. Consistency on the road will allow your vehicle to not have to adjust repeatedly between speeds and gears and can improve fuel efficiency by up to 7%. Use cruise control whenever you can! Some new vehicles come with adaptive cruise control technology, which allows the vehicle to regulate its speeds in alignment with vehicles in front of or behind the driver. Browse our vehicle inventory to find out which vehicles come equipped with adaptive cruise control and other fuel-efficient technology!

4. Replace Your Fuel Filter


Your fuel filter helps to keep your engine clean by filtering out dirt and grime and improving your engine's efficiency with steady streams of clean fuel. Typically, your fuel filter should be replaced every 25,000-30,000 miles, or whenever your vehicle owner's manual states it should be. If your engine struggles at low speeds or has difficulty starting up, your fuel filter may need replacing. If you schedule an appointment to get it replaced, you'll notice the benefits of a brand new fuel filter with improved mileage, smoother driving, and quicker startups. 

5. Check Your Tire's Air Pressure


Keeping up on your tire pressure will provide you with improved fuel efficiency and make driving a more comfortable experience. If your vehicle has tires with low pressure, they will increase the rolling resistance your vehicle has against the road, damaging its efficiency. Checking your tires weekly will be a helpful routine in increasing your overall gas mileage. Purchasing low rolling-resistance tires will allow your vehicle to drive along roads with less resistance, decreasing the pressure put on the engine and further increasing your fuel efficiency.

Looking for more ways to save money on fuel and vehicle care? Our routine maintenance pages provide tips and tricks to taking care of every part of your vehicle, from the wiper blades to the tires! Now that you know how to increase your gas mileage, you'll be able to save more money for road trips, fun activities, and maybe even a new vehicle! Take a look at some of our summer car care tips to further improve your gas mileage and vehicle operations this summer. You can also check out our vehicle inventory! We carry over seven different manufacturer brands: browsing for a new vehicle has never been so easy. Take the 2017 Nissan Rogue, America's Best-Selling SUV, out for a test drive today! Download the vehicle brochure for more details on this sleek and efficient vehicle, and then stop by to get a firsthand look at the 2017 Nissan Rogue and our wide selection of other vehicles!

You can find the latest selection of Audi, Nissan, Toyota, VW, and Volvo vehicles at our North Campus location at 1301 S Garfield Ave, Traverse City, MI.

Toyota Opens North American Headquarters in Texas

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich.,–– Celebrating 60 long and productive years in the United States, Toyota opens its North American Headquarters in Texas, once again reaffirming its longstanding commitment to the states. The 100-acre, $1 billion corporate campus, located in Plano Texas, commemorated its grand opening with a gala event, hosting community leaders, partners, and dignitaries. The newly opened headquarters make up a portion of Toyota's $10 billion investment in the United States over the next 5 years, and will add over 4,000 jobs to the Texas area by the end of 2017. Toyota announced that over 1,000 of these employees will be hired from the rich local talent market and surrounding areas.

Toyota Opens North American Headquarters in Texas


Occupancy in the Toyota headquarters began in the late spring and team members are expected to be transitioning to their new corporate base until late December. With this grand opening, Toyota received a written congratulations from the White House, signed by the President. Toyota's commitment to the United States over the past 60 years includes over 10 manufacturing assembly facilities, 1,500 Toyota dealerships, and 136,000 direct and dealer employees. 

Toyota's campus supports the One Toyota Vision, creating spaces and locations that encourage transparency within corporate culture. The seven buildings all congregate in the center courtyard, where dining, the fitness center, and conferencing facilities are held. 

“The opening of our new headquarters in Plano is an extraordinary next step in Toyota’s 60-year journey in the United States,” said Jim Lentz, CEO of Toyota in North America. “With team members from four different companies together in one campus location, we believe this will inspire greater collaboration, innovation, and faster decision making as we turn to and lead the future of mobility, all with an eye on our customers.”

The corporate campus aims to achieve a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, showing their commitment to sustainability. They hope to do this with drought-resistant plants, over 20,000 solar panels, a rainwater irrigation system, and a vow to only use sustainable energy. The exterior of the campus will reflect the native habitat, preventing the rise of invasive species, and their 400,000-gallon irrigation system will keep the local flora and fauna in the area alive and healthy.

After over 5 million hours of work, 142,500 yards of concrete, and over 12 acres of glass, Toyota opens its North American headquarters in Texas. This state-of-the-art facility, located in Plano, Texas, is now open to the public. Toyota's reaffirmation to its commitment to the United States has shown that they are dedicated to the advancement of the auto industry in North America.

Certified Pre-Owned Vs. Used Vehicles

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich.,–– If you're in the market to purchase a vehicle, there are quite a few options to consider. While some people may opt to lease or purchase a new vehicle, others would rather buy a used car or a certified pre-owned vehicle. Today, we'll be going over certified pre-owned vs. used vehicles and the differences between the two so you can make the purchasing decision that best suits your needs!

Certified Pre-Owned Vs. Used Vehicles

What is a CPO Vehicle?


A certified pre-owned vehicle, or CPO for short, is a used vehicle that's typically 6 or less years old, has gone through a series of inspections and repairs, and is covered by a manufacturer for an extended period or amount of miles. While each vehicle manufacturer offers slightly different CPO programs, most offer the same benefits. Let's take a look at some of the pros and cons. 

Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles

Pros:

  • They will always have a clean title. During the selection process, vehicle history reports are thoroughly looked at to determine the title's status. If the vehicle has a salvaged title or otherwise, it's usually not selected to become a CPO vehicle.
  • They have to pass a rigorous inspection process. Important components within the vehicle are inspected in order to ensure it is properly working and can handle the road ahead. If there are issues found during the inspection process, they will likely be fixed or the component will be reconditioned to the manufacturer's standard.
  • They have extensive warranty coverage. Most, if not all of your vehicle will have warranties on parts. These warranties are typically to 100,000 miles or so, which means you'll be able to reap the benefits for months or even years to come. Depending on the CPO program, you might also get roadside assistance benefits as well! 
  • They are typically newer and come with more features. You'll be able to get a vehicle that will be no older than 5 years for a fraction of the price of a new vehicle!

Cons:

  • CPO's might cost slightly more than used vehicles, but they offer benefits like the included warranties that help to make up for the small price difference.
  • Your vehicle may have had previous extensive service due to a collision or incident in its past, but that doesn't mean it isn't "up-to-code". All CPO vehicles must meet the strict standards of the manufacturer, so you can be sure it's safe to drive despite its past. You can see all of this information on the vehicle history report.

Used Vehicles

Pros:

  • There are a wider range of vehicles if you choose to go with a used vehicle. This is because CPO vehicles must meet the standards of its individual manufacturer. Shopping used might give you more freedom to get a vehicle within your needs.
  • They may be less expensive than CPO vehicles. This wide range of used vehicles comes with a wide price range, meaning you can choose to purchase a less expensive vehicle and have more money in your pocket. 
  • They offer the freedom of warranty and protection program selection. With a CPO, the warranty is typically included, but with a used vehicle, you're free to choose which programs suit your driving habits best.

Cons:

  • The used vehicle may be inspected by the dealership to determine its health, but doesn't need to meet the strict requirements of the manufacturer. The vehicle can also have a salvaged or damaged title, which can mean more complications for you to deal with. 
  • Warranties aren't typically included with the vehicle purchase, and therefore up to you to choose and purchase yourself through the dealership or through a third party vendor. It's up to you to decide which option is best for you and your driving habits. 
  • Used vehicles can be simply unpredictable. Even if the vehicle was inspected and runs well, problems can pop-up soon after purchase and it's usually up to you to pay for the cost of repair. Keep a special eye out for warranties through the dealership, and buying as-is vehicles to avoid even more surprises. 
While both CPO vehicles and used vehicles each have their benefits, they can also set you back in various ways. Knowing which option best fits your lifestyle, budget, and needs is important in determining your final decision. Choosing between purchasing a certified pre-owned vs. used vehicle is a big decision, but we're happy to help answer any questions you may have at Serra of Traverse City. Before you stop by, take a look at our list of used and certified pre-owned vehicles to get a better idea of what's out there.
