Back to the 80’s – Saturday, June 16th “This is an ALL-Inclusive auto event – Ford, Pontiac, Chevy, Dodge, Nissan, Mazda, Toyota, Jaguar, Porsche, Ferrari…if it was made in the 80’s, bring it out!

If you drove it wearing blue eye shadow or acid-washed jeans, we want to see it! (The eye shadow is optional this time around).

Marketing Interns and Audis: Do They Mix?

By | 2018-05-31T13:19:50+00:00 May 31st, 2018|Driving Experience|0 Comments

School’s out and summer jobs are starting. Our summer marketing interns, Zach and Claire, had a less than typical assignment their first week on the job. They were sent on a road trip to La Crosse, Wisconsin to experience and report on how the 2018 Audi Q7 and 2018 Audi A7 drove. Claire: The A7 is a perfect mix of luxury and sport. Its exterior is sharp and sexy, somewhat resembling a young hatchback with long body and notable cargo capacity. The driver sits low, amplifying its sport car vibe. However, the electric seat positioning allows for incredible adjustability, I was comfortable the entire 3-hour drive. The A7 is a perfect car for those who are looking for a daily car but aren’t willing to sacrifice speed, the quickness of the supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine makes for a conservative adrenaline rush. The A7 is a smooth ride with a reliable and impressive turning radius, it was a blast to drive on the curvy, riverside roads to La Crosse. Zach: The A7 can be summed up in the phrase form and function.  The A7 is absolutely gorgeous and it is a functional daily driver as well.  There are plenty of beautiful sports cars/super cars out there, such as the Audi R8, but none are able to double as functional family cars at the same time.  With seating for 5 and a spacious trunk there is plenty of room to put groceries or your kid’s sports equipment, especially with the rear seats [...]

You Auto Know – Road Trip Prep

Summer is here, the grass is green, and kids are out of school.  What better way to spend time with your family than with a cross country road trip?  There are so many great national parks and monuments available to visit, it can often be difficult to decide where to go.  However, the most important thing to do is to make sure that your car is ready for whatever road lies ahead.  Here is a quick list of things that should be inspected on your car before you leave. Fluids and Regular Maintenance: Check your vehicle’s engine oil, transmission oil and differential oil to prevent any damage to the key components that makes your vehicle run properly. Also perform any necessary maintenance that may arise during the trip, such as replacing the timing belt and spark plugs.  It is also extremely important to check the amount of brake pad left, only if you plan on stopping during your road trip.  Another thing to check is your headlights and brake lights; checking these will not only help keep you and your family safe, but it will also help you avoid unplanned stops and tickets from the friendly State Patrol. Battery: Be sure to check your battery and clean the battery terminals (the two prongs you connect the wires to) so that your vehicle will consistently start during the trip. Tires and Alignment: One of the most important things to check on your vehicle is the tread left on your tires.  A [...]
