Distracted Driving

The world is at our fingertips. Everywhere you go you have access to your friends, entertainment, GPS, online banking, games, the list goes on and on. All you have to do is unlock your phone and you get instant gratification. Not only is it not safe but text messaging and phone usage while driving has been banned in many states, and rightfully so. Click here to see your state laws.

When you leave your phone in the cup holder its hard to ignore the text messages and notifications. Here are some tips to help keep your attention on the road for your safety and the safety of the people around you.

1. Go hands free and keep your hands on the wheel. Headsets are a very affordable option and a lot of cars come with integrated speakerphones now. Its worth the investment if you are someone who makes a lot of phone calls in the car. (Click here for the "10 Best Bluetooth Headsets")

2. Put it on silent and somewhere unreachable before you put your car in drive. If you don't know about the text message or can't get to it chances are you won't be distracted. Click here for five apps to prevent texting and driving.

3. Have a designated texter. If its really important have your passenger text back for you, otherwise it can wait. Texting takes your hands, eyes, and focus off of driving. You may think you are in control but a recent stundy reported that drivers are twenty-three times more likely to be in an automobile crash when texting. Click here for more texting and driving statistics.

Even though its hard we all need to implement the "just say no" attitude. Say yes to safety and no to meaningless distractions. They can wait.

Extend the Life of Your Vehicle

Buying a car is a big investment. That's why we have auto insurance for the big things to keep us covered. What about that nail on the road that just destroyed your tire? What about that rock the truck in front of you kicked up and cracked your windshield? Your navigation system stopped working? Forgot to budget in all those oil changes and scheduled maintenance?

Whatever you need, there is a warranty out there for you. Extended warranties are an affordable way to cover unforeseen expenses.

Platinum Vehicle Protection:
You could be the best driver in the world but guess what, the world isn't perfect. The Platinum Vehicle Protection program from Power Protect bundles Tire & Wheel Protection, Dent & Ding Protection, and Windshield Repair Protection. Nails, rocks, even shopping carts will no longer break the bank.

 A few key highlights:
  • No deductible - zero out-of-pocket cost for you at time of claim
  • No limit on number of occurrences or mileage
  • Covers damage caused by road hazards like glass, metal, potholes, debris, nails or blows outs.
  • Front windshield repair of chips and cracks caused by rocks and other road debris
  • Removes door dings and minor dents without harming your vehicle's factory finish
These things happen out of the blue and can add up. Be sure you are protected from the unexpected!
Vehicle Service Contract:
Power Protect has three available plans for comprehensive protection. Powertrain, Gold, and Platinum: 

I didn't realize you could buy coverage for your audio and navigation. Did you?! Plus amazing benefits like 24-hour roadside assistance, towing, rental car reimbursement, trip interruption coverage, and transferable coverage. Transferable coverage may add to your car value if you decide to sell your vehicle.

GAP Insurance:
GAP can be purchased on new and used vehicles. If you owe more than your car is worth you are upside down. Roughly half of people who finance their vehicle are upside down (source/more information). If your car is totaled your insurance company will only pay what the car is worth so GAP steps in and pays the difference between what you owe and what the car is worth.  Say you owe $25,000 for your car and your insurance determines the value to be  $21,500, GAP pays the bank the $3,500 so you don't have to. You'll barely notice the difference in your monthly payment but if you don't get it you will be hurting when the bank starts looking for their money.

Pre-Paid Maintenance:
Pre-Paid Maintenance is exactly what it sounds like. You pay upfront so that for the lifetime of your plan you don't have to worry about paying for your scheduled oil and oil filter changes. When you buy this plan you're essentially rolling the cost of your oil changes into your monthly car payment.

If you purchase all these plans when you finance your vehicle, you would be set up to have very few out-of-pocket expenses besides your your monthly payment. If you have any question give us a call at 940-243-6200.

Hyundai Sonata Open Campaigns

Hyundai makes every effort to create perfect vehicles every time. When they fall short it is Hyundai's desire to make it right. Below are two open campaigns for Hyundai Sonatas. If your car is affected by these campaigns please call us and we will work with your schedule to repair your vehicle as soon as possible.

Applicable Vehicles: 2011-2014 Sonata 2.0L and 2.4L (excluding Hybrid) with automatic transaxles.
This open safety campaign involves the automatic transaxle shift lever. The cable that connects the transmission range selector switch to the vehicle's shift lever pin may become disconnected, which could keep your vehicle from being able to go into the park position, preventing the vehicle from being started.

Applicable Vehicles: 2011 Sonata (YF) vehicles manufactured on December 11, 2009 through September 1, 2010.
This open safety campaign involves the brake tubes that may develop a leak over time. If the brake tubes leak sufficient brake fluid, the brake warning lamp in the instrument cluster will illuminate and longer stopping distance will be required, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. Do not be alarmed, the brake warning lamp will illuminate before the condition is serious.

Repairing these conditions comes at no cost to you! The replacement part and labor is covered by Hyundai's commitment to quality and safety for the life of your car. Please make an appointment online at www.EckertHyundai.com or by phone at 940-243-6233.
