If you choose to have your insurance policy, you should make sure that the auto glass repair shop is approved by your insurance company.

What Window is the Cheapest to Break on a Car

 Some may think that the cheapest window to break is the smallest window on there car.

When it comes to auto glass replacement prices the smallest window on the car can end up being the most expensive window to replace.

Take this 2008 Mitsubishi Gallant, the back little window in the rear door is one of the most expensive windows on the car to replace, the window ended up costing around $310.00 to get replaced.

When push comes to shove and you need to smash out a window on your car to gain access to it, try and think of what window is replaced the most on your type of vehicle.

The most common window replaced on a car is one of the front door windows, the front door windows are most likely to be smashed out due to theft and stolen items left in plain site to a thief.

The front door on this 2008 Mitsubishi Gallant would have only been about $150.00 to replace and that’s half the price of the rear little window on the door.

Sometimes its best to contact a Murrieta Auto Glass Repair Shop to find out the best window to break out if you have the time.

Windscreen Installation Quote | FREE Mobile Service | CPR Auto Glass

 You could be paying more for that windshield to be installed at the shop location vs getting the FREE mobile service.

Lets face it the gas prices are just a big bill these days, you figure every 20 miles you drive to get somewhere and another 20 miles to get back to the house you just spent another $15.00 on top of what you just bought.

Wouldn’t you rather stay put somewhere and while you are getting your work done than your windshield could be getting installed. Nobody likes to take there car in to get worked on just to see there car sit in the parking lot for the first half hour not being touched. I know you try to play some apps you might have on your iPhone or droid or you might go to a neighboring store to do some looking around just to pass the time.

But now that you left they might put off your windshield installation another 20 min. do to someone just walked in to get a rock chip repair done on there windshield and they are going to wait because its only going to only take about 20 min. to get the windshield repair done.

So you show back up to see how your car is coming along and you see that the car is pulled in but the windshield has not been installed. Now your getting a little irritated at the situation so you go up to the desk to ask when do you think my car is going to have the windshield installed, “I have to leave to get my kids from school soon.” The lady or guy will then probably give you an excuse or tell you that he is going to put two guys on it right now and the windshield installation will only take about 30 min.

Don’t you think the appointment time should be when they start to work on your windshield and not drag there feet.

This is were mobile windshield installation comes in handy, unless you call the other guys for your mobile windshield installation to be done cause there appointment window times are 8am – 12pm or 1pm – 5pm.

Here at CPR Auto Glass of Murrieta we like to give appointment times on the hour or every half hour just to insure we will be showing up around that time to install your new windshield, we may be about 15 min. early or even 20 min. late but you could be sure that we will be installing your new windshield when we show up and its only going to take about 30 – 45 min to install your new windshield.

Can you imagine driving down the road listening to the radio not thinking to much of the dogs moving from seat to seat in the car, and next thing you know your great Dane jumps up into the front passenger seat and wham o!! head bunts the windshield hard enough to smash and crack it to were you cant even drive it till you get the windshield replaced.

Temecula Auto Leasing Scams | Temecula CA

Car-leasing has been lauded as a more attractive alternative to buying, offering in the process the flexibility to drive a new car for less. The reality, however, is that leasing is an option that is fraught with many pitfalls for the average customer. Leasing regulation does not require as much disclosure as buying a vehicle. This has given rise to many leasing scams that trick the customer into believing they are into a good deal when, in effect, all he is getting is a rough deal on the dealer’s terms.

Here we look at some of these common scams and how to avoid them

Artificially low interest rates:

Some dealers quote a lower interest rate when in reality it’s much higher. They do this by either purposefully quoting the money factor as the interest rate or calculating the loan without amortizing some closing fees, like the security deposit, into the loan lease. Take the money factor for example: this is typically expressed as a four decimal digit, something like 0.004. Some dealers quote this as a 4% interest rate when in fact you need to multiply it by 24 to get a rough idea of the interest rate on your loan. In this example, the interest rate is a much higher 9.6% than the “quoted” rate of 4%. Make sure you crunch the numbers and understand the formula they use to calculate their interest rate. Look out for any fees not factored into the calculation. If you are not satisfied, do not enter into the lease agreement.

Terminate your lease early for a low penalty

This is an all-time leasing scam. You ask your dealer how much you will pay if you want to terminate your lease and he tells you: “You want to get out early? Sure thing, you only pay an early termination fee of $300”.  What he is quoting is only the small administrative penalty of early termination, there is a much stiffer penalty called early termination fee and this runs into thousands of dollars. Do not confuse the early termination administrative penalty with the termination fee. Read the small print carefully and know exactly how much you will get charged should you terminate your lease before its scheduled end.

Pay for an extended warranty you don’t need

This is another shell game to inflate the dealer’s profit at your expense. The dealer slides an extended-warranty into the deal whilst it’s already factored into the monthly payments, or he tricks you into buying a 36-month warranty on a 24-month lease.   You do not have to pay extra money for a warranty already built into your payments or for one that goes well beyond your lease term. They might slip an extended warranty in. Don’t be fooled, the warranty is already factored in.

No security deposit

Any dealer who advertises a $0 security deposit is not telling you the whole story. A security deposit is always factored in the lease under the provision for disposition fees.

Rediscovering the Wonders of the Toyota Prius Hybrid Car

Motor Trends Car of the Year for 2004, North American Car of the Year in 2004, 2004 International Engine of the Year, 2005 European Car of the Year, 2006 Energuide Award in the Midsize segment, this and more are the accolades given to the Toyota Prius Hybrid Car. Undoubtedly one of the most popular and most regarded competitor in the ever growing hybrid car segment, the Toyota Prius has definitely made a marked in the motor industry.

The Toyota Prius is a Hybrid car that makes a bold statement against environmental issues and the rising gas prices. It is also the first ever mass-produced hybrid car for commercial purposes. Its name itself means first.

The Toyota Prius hybrid car was first sold in Japan in 1997 before it was distributed all over the globe 4 years later in 2001. Its popularity was boosted by environmentalists touting it as the car for the future to save our planet from air pollution. Sales in North America ws strong and increasing annually. By fall of 2006, the Toyota Prius hybrid car had the strongest demand and has the longest preorder and waiting list there is presently.

Toyota sees the Prius as a venue that would provide the consumers with a vehicle that would produce less pollution and to be very energy efficient. And Toyota certainly reached that goal. They created the Prius from the bottom up resulting to a true hybrid vehicle that is loved worldwide.

Toyota engineers came up with a couple of ways to develop the Toyota Prius hybrid car to be unlike other previous concept electric cars, the Prius doesn’t ever need to be plugged in for recharging. The two electric motor generators get its power from the gas engine, recharging while the engine power is being used. Also, through regenerative braking, a process that recovers kinetic energy when the car brakes and transforming it to electrical energy to recharge the batteries.

By 2004 a second generation of Toyota Prius hybrid car was released on the market. Capitalizing on the development of the new Hybrid Synbergy Drive technology, the previous Toyota Hybrid System was replaced in the new generation Toyota Hybrids. Many improvements were developed and infused in the technology making the Toyota Prius hybrid car even better than before.

Aside from the engine, Toyota added more room to the Toyota Prius hybrid car making it wider and taller allowing for taller people to sit erect inside the car and allowing more views of the road.

Because of the success brought by the Toyota Prius hybrid car and the public awareness it has developed, Toyota has extended its Hybrid lineup to their other vehicles. This includes the Toyota Camry hybrid and their top of the line Lexus marquee with the Lexus RX400H.

Truly, the Toyota Prius hybrid car has gone a long way. Its engineering superiority and its excellent reputation has made it a great choice for many people. Even a lot of notable famous people have bought themselves a Toyota Prius hybrid car to show their support to environmental awareness.

Toyota has definitely hit the nail in the head with the Toyota Prius hybrid car and we can expect to see more of this technology in the future. With Toyota’s dedication to this endeavor, we can be sure that we can finally cut down on gas consumption and save our planet.
