3 easy ways to improve your fuel economy

With today’s ever-changing gas prices, most drivers want to get a little more bang for their buck. The good news? There are plenty of ways to boost your car’s fuel economy. And, when you combine a few of these fuel-saving techniques, you’ll see your savings soar.

Break your bad brake habits
It pays to use your brakes sparingly. According to an article in Forbes.com, riding your brakes can cause excess wear and tear, and it can reduce gas consumption by 35 percent. Go easy, and you could see savings of $1.35 per gallon. 

Keep your tires inflated
According to www.fueleconomy.gov, keeping your tires inflated to recommended levels can improve gas mileage by up to 3.3 percent! Plus, it’s a lot safer, and it increases the life of your tires, too.

Sloooooww down!
Getting from Point A to Point B in record time isn’t always a good idea. Research by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory indicates that once you hit 50 mph, increasing your speed by 10 additional mph decreases your fuel economy drastically. In fact, driving at a speed of  80 mph instead of 70 mph can result in your car being as much as 26 percent less efficient!

Customer Mailbox–A vote of confidence

Thanks also to everyone who takes the time to keep in touch with us via Facebook, Twitter, email and good ‘ole fashioned snail mail. Keep those letters coming!

My wife and I have been your customers for over 30 years. Never have we been disappointed with your service. We always go to you for our service on both of our Hondas, and it is always excellent.

This week I had some body work done, and again the service was outstanding – from Kevin to the office staff. They were all so pleasant and efficient, and the job was excellent.

It is such a joy to have full confidence of every service I require.

Well done, Don Ayres!

Can you end a lease agreement early?

Customers occasionally ask us if it’s possible to end a lease early, and the short answer is yes. It is possible to trade out of your lease prior to the end of your lease agreement, but there are a few factors that come into play. Some things to consider:

• How far are you into your lease agreement?

• How many miles do you have on your current vehicle?

• How does your remaining payoff amount compare with your vehicle’s current market value?

With used car values at an all-time high (especially with Honda vehicles) and incredible incentives from Honda, you may be in a position to make a switch.

When you lease a vehicle, you have a payoff amount — just as you do with a traditional auto loan. Depending on the market value of your vehicle, there is a strong possibility that you can trade out of your current vehicle 6 to 9 months prior to the end of your lease agreement.

Many customers jump at the chance to drive a brand new Honda with a similar monthly payment.

If this is an option you’d like to explore, contact your Don Ayres Honda salesperson. He or she can take a look at your current situation and let you know what makes the most sense for you.
