Top 3 Places in Laurel to Get Your Car Professionally Detailed

car professionally detailed

There’s nothing better than a freshly-cleaned, detailed car. Whether you detail your car yourself or have it detailed by a professional, it’s a fantastic feeling to see your car looking brand new again—no more food smells, stains, dirt that’s been tracked in, the dashboard isn’t dusty…it’s all gone!

If you’re looking for the best places in the Laurel, Maryland, area to have your car detailed, we’ve researched and tracked down a few places for you. We looked at each location’s Yelp reviews and made sure to find places that were:

  • Within Laurel, MD
  • Reviewed within the last year (if not sooner)
  • Had a majority of positive reviews
  • Reviewed by real people (not fake accounts)

Based on our research, here are the three locations customers like you recommend:

1. Total Recon—Total Recon’s Yelp reviews indicate that this location is “a great bunch of guys,” “highly recommended,” and “staff was professional and friendly.” According to its website, “Total Recon strives to treat the environment with care.  Most of our products are 100% biodegradable.”

2. Divine Hands Car Wash and Detail Shop—Divine Hands’ Yelp reviews weren’t as numerous as Total Recon’s, but still noted, “The owner and entire staff make sure you are satisfied from start to finish.” It’s a full-service hand car wash and detail shop whose owner has nearly 27 years in the cosmetic car care industry. Divine Hands is the better choice if you prefer more of a “Mom and Pop” feel over a larger business like Total Recon.

3. Tischer Auto—you know we had to mention our dealership, right? While we specialize in new, certified, and pre-owned car sales, we also take great pride in being able to offer car care services to our customers beyond the initial car purchase. Better still, we offer a full range of vehicular care, including professional detailing, to anyone. That means you do not have to be a Tischer customer to take advantage of any of the services we provide.

No matter where you service your car, keep in mind that the amount of time it will take to get your car detailed can vary based on the amount of detailing your car needs and the size of your car. At Tischer, our car detailing service can take anywhere from as little to an hour to as long as three hours depending on your car’s individual needs.

Having your car detailed by a professional has numerous benefits such as saving time, energy, and hassle, helping to maintain your car’s interior integrity (especially if you use your car for business), and alleviating the stress that can come along with being in a dirty and/or cluttered environment. With “spring cleaning” in full swing, it’s the perfect time of year to do it!

If we can be of service to you in helping to maintain your car—in any way—please contact us for a service appointment.

Car Color Psychology: What Your Car Color Says About You

car color psychology

Dealerships offer an endless variety of car color choices. (Nissan Juke Color Studio, anyone?) Options range from classic black or white to bolder colors such as lime green and bright yellow. Just as interesting as car color options, if not more so, are the reasons behind buyers’ color choices—from regulating temperature to cleanliness to buyer personality—all of these reasons seem to hold sway over car buyers’ preferences. In fact, according to one article, 93% of consumers view color and overall visual appearance as the most important factors when shopping and 85% say that color is the primary reason why they buy a product. There’s definitely something behind this whole “car color psychology” concept.

This same article goes on to detail that, according to a study conducted in 2009 in the UK, drivers of black cars were twice as likely to be involved in an accident as drivers of softer, cream-colored cars. Bright colors also tend to be preferred by those who drive performance-based cars (like a Ferrari). “Various theorists believe that calm, cool, and detached drivers own silver cars, while those who prefer a simple lifestyle own white cars, and that pink cars reflect femininity, gentleness and tenderness.” Still another survey found “owners of silver or metallic blue cars were the happiest drivers on the road, while owners of cars in the newer pastel colours of lilac and lime were twice as likely to be the victims of road rage. On average they were ill three more days per year than other motorists.”

A little more food for thought: Psychologist Conrad King said, “Drivers may think that they are cocooned when they are behind the wheel of their car but in reality their choice of car colour sends a clear signal to other motorists. A poor choice in car colour for pastel car owners mimics a number of other poor life choices which, in turn can lead to more stress and depression. The colour of the car can be a symptom of an underlying personality problem … Colour preferences can indicate a definite psycho-social pecking order on the roads, with the owners of black and red cars struggling for dominant position.”

As Nancy Lockhart, a color marketing manager with Axalta Coating Systems (formerly DuPont), a global car-coating business in Detroit, explains, “Color preferences change throughout time and may differ by region or vehicle type…The personality of the vehicle is as important as the personality of the buyer. The vehicle style, design and branding can influence color choices. A luxury sedan is more popular in black and white colors, but a small and sporty version is widely associated with red and colorful shades.”

In the article from which the quote was referenced, readers went on to comment about what influences their car color choices:

  • “I usually get a white or silver car because it shows scratches the least…”
  • “Black is hot. I mean as in uncomfortable, stifling hot with wasted energy on A/C. White is the absence of color (scientifically the opposite is true). Cooler comfort-wise.”
  • “I always buy used cars, so color is usually at the bottom of my list. Mileage, age and condition are much more important to me, not to mention price.”
  • “Silver cars are invisible. I had 2 silver cars and people constantly pulled out in front of me as if I wasn’t there. I noticed I do the same thing to silver and grey cars.”
  • “I don’t care about trends. It’s green (color) all the way for this green color loving person. In the eight cars I have owned and driven, only one was white because there was no green available that year (and with a maroon and white interior, painting it was no option!). I will continue to drive (and own) a green colored car. It amazes me why people don’t drive around in a vehicle that is their favorite color.”

Yes, people choose car colors for a variety of reasons—out of habit, to cover up dirt or scratches, to feel powerful or classy or bold, or simply neglect color altogether and focus on price and practicality. Still, it’s interesting to see what sources from KISSmetrics, Road & Truck, and AOL autos reveal about car color choices and personality:

  • Silver: You are calm, cool, elegant, futuristic and possibly detached
  • White: You are fastidious, enjoy a simple life, have a strong attention to detail and are possibly a perfectionist
  • Green: You are trustworthy, traditional and balanced, but can also be lively and occasionally hysterical
  • Brown/Beige: You are practical, reliable, down-to-earth and pragmatic.
  • Yellow: You are upbeat, intelligent and young at heart
  • Grey: You are calm, sober and very career-driven
  • Blue: You are confident, quiet and dependable
  • Red: You are energetic, dynamic and have a lust for life
  • Pink: You are gentle, loving and caring
  • Black: You are conservative, empowered, elegant and professional
  • Purple: You are creative, unafraid of stepping outside of the norm and happy to be seen as unique

Now that we’ve done the research, we want to hear from you. What factors influence the choice you make in car colors? Share your feedback with us on Facebook or Twitter, or in the comments below.

Everything You Need to Know About AcuraWatch

AcuraWatch-blog-header

A few 2016 Acura models have already arrived here at Tischer, such as the 2016 ILX and MDX. As new models arrive, we examine what’s new and updated within each model. One feature we think you should know about is the new AcuraWatch.

AcuraWatch is Acura’s new suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies that include:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow (LSF)
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS)
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW) (standard on Tech Package)
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
  • Blind Spot Information (BSI) (Technology and Advance)
  • Multi-View Rear Camera with Dynamic Guidelines
  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor

These technologies improve Acura model safety by sensing the roadway and objects within it, including other vehicles and pedestrians, by way of sophisticated camera and radar technology that work in tandem. The result is a safer, more alert vehicle that, if necessary, can intervene to prevent the car from departing a lane, departing the road, or help to avoid or mitigate the severity of a collision. That being said, these new AcuraWatch technologies are in addition to, but not a replacement of, common sense safe driving practices.

Depending on the Acura model/trim/package a driver selects, AcuraWatch can either be equipped with your Acura model or, in some cases, may come standard with a package.

For a visual explanation of how these technologies work, check out the YouTube video below and the infographic, both provided by Acura.

If you have further questions about AcuraWatch, please feel free to call our Acura sales department (866-906-1974) or reach out to us on Facebook or Twitter.

Be Proud to Sport the PUREDRIVE® Badge This Earth Day

nissan-puredrive-earth-day

Happy Earth Day, Tischer friends! It’s actually the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, and we thought we’d take a moment to honor this beautiful planet we all share as well as remind you about the Nissan PUREDRIVE® badge and what it stands for.

The PUREDRIVE® badge has been around for some time and so it’s easy for drivers’ eyes to glaze over that emblem without a second thought as to its meaning. Debuting on the 2012 Versa sedan, Nissan launched its “Pure Drive” initiative, which showcases Nissan’s continuing commitment to development of environment-friendly technology through improved fuel economy on internal combustion engine vehicles with reduced CO2 emissions.

The crux of this technology is replacing an automatic transmission (AT) with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). This technology replaces fixed gears with two tapered pulleys linked by a metal belt, which curtails the typical waste of significant amounts of fuel by the AT’s selecting gear ratios less-than-efficient for specific road conditions. The result is smooth acceleration and a much wider range of gear ratios that serve to boost fuel economy.

Early CVTs gave birth to Nissan’s even more efficient and lightweight new generation of XTRONIC CVTs. XTRONIC CVTs help with fuel efficiency and fuel economy, and create less internal friction. With Adaptive Shift Control, which offers more than 1,000 shift patterns in sporty, normal and city modes, XTRONIC lets you choose a driving experience that suits the road and your mood.

In one Edmunds.com article about the PUREDRIVE® badge, one commentator added,

“Pure Drive is, quite frankly worth mentioning. It basically means that the vehicle that carries it has exceeded the 2016 CAFE Standards. The CVT transmission is a large part of how it accomplishes this, but there’s also improved aerodynamics, microfinished surfaces in the engine, and electrically assisted power steering instead of one driven by the engine. Some, but not all Nissan models carry the badge also. I’m writing this the day after the Climate March in New York City where 400,000 people came to support the Climate Change Initiative and the line of people stretched 4 miles in Manhattan. That is a sign that people want change, the US Congress is demanding change through the laws they create and vehicle manufacturers are delivering it!”

You might also be interested to know that PUREDRIVE® technology is just one component of Nissan’s overall Green Program, which aims to deliver the following:

  • No.1 in Zero-Emission Vehicles: cumulative sales of 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles across the Renault-Nissan Alliance
  • Leading fuel efficiency: 35% fuel economy improvement compared with 2005 on a corporate average for all Nissan vehicles sold in Japan, China, Europe and the United States
  • Leading low corporate carbon footprint: 20% reduction per vehicle of CO2 emission of corporate activities compared with 2005
  • Leading closed-loop recycling: raise the usage rate of recycled materials to 25%

To clarify, PUREDRIVE® technology is different than the technology behind the Nissan LEAF’s technology. The 100% electric LEAF is also a fantastic option for environmentally-conscious drivers. But Nissan explains, “Nissan believes it is important not only to develop and circulate zero emission vehicles such as electric vehicles and fuel cell vehicles, but also to improve the fuel economy of engine-powered vehicles. Vehicles that are powered by engines which burn fuel suffer from energy loss in various situations. Maximizing energy efficiency in order to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emission— Nissan’s undertaking entitled “PURE DRIVE” is our action to improve fuel economy of engine-powered vehicles.”

The next time you are in the market for a new car but are also looking for a car that is a little kinder to the planet, consider one of our Nissan models with the PUREDRIVE® badge. And just because a car is more earth-friendly doesn’t mean that it can’t be modern, sporty, or refined. As one writer for Autobytel pointed out, “Vehicles with the Pure Drive badge should prove that low emissions vehicles don’t have to be boring.”

By purchasing a car with the PUREDRIVE® badge not only will you be helping the environment, but through these more efficient and greener technologies, you’ll be a little kinder to your wallet as well.

  9. A frameless rearview mirror

  11. Tire Pressure Monitoring System fill assist that sounds an audible alert when the driver inflates the tire to the correct pressure.
  12. Upgrades, depending on trim, that include a Multi-View Angle Rear Camera with Dynamic Guidelines, a bi-directional remote engine starter, idle stop and head up warning
  13. A total of 16 possible trims (16 trims for the 2016 model year, wink wink!)

There’s a reason this refined and sophisticated 7-passenger SUV has been a best-seller. Both customers and industry professionals alike have sung its praises:

“Everyone who has driven the MDX gave it glowing praise for everything — comfort, space, fuel economy, sportiness…” (Motortrend)

“It’s enjoyable on my way to work and at play with the seats full. It has good work/life balance as they say these days.” (Edmunds.com)

“Acura MDX continues to offer an attractive blend of content, comfort, and entertainment for the entire family – including the driver.” (The Car Connection)

Had fun driving my @acura #MDX around #Beaufort South Carolina this morning. I love this thing 🙂

How to Get the Maximum Trade-in Value for Your Used Car

How to Get the Maximum Tradein Value for Your Used Vehicle

There comes a point in every car owner’s life where you realize your current car is no longer suitable for your needs, and it’s time to trade it in for a different model. This could be for any number of reasons such as:

You need a larger car as your family grows.

  • You’re entering the workforce and would like a car that suits a working professional.
  • You’re an empty-nester who is ready to downsize.
  • You would like a car that offers better technology, functionality, fuel-efficiency or some other convenience.
  • Your warranty is near its expiration.
  • You’re simply ready for a change.

Whatever the reason, most owners wonder what they can do to maximize the trade-in value of their car. Fortunately, there are a great many resources and tips to help you do so. Here are some of our tips:

  1. From the start, invest in a car with excellent retained value. Both Kelley Blue Book and Edmunds offer yearly reports on cars that have good resale value and less depreciation over time.
  2. Maintain your vehicle. A properly-maintained car will typically have fewer problems over time, making it more appealing to the next owner or dealership that will be responsible for it.
  3. Keep your maintenance records. Keep documentation of all the services you have had on your car. Our general manager, Bruce, once appraised a car for $1,500 higher because the owner presented him with proof of vehicle maintenance and services.
  4. Keep your car clean. Keeping your car clean, both outside and inside, might seem like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised at the way trade-in vehicles arrive on our lot. We’ve seen everything left in cars from clothes, food, and food containers to sticky steering wheels!  Bottom line, the less the dealership or next party has to do to recondition your car, the less money they have to invest in it, which makes the trade-in value of your car higher. According to Bruce, a cleaned and detailed car can enhance the value by as much as $1,000!
  5. Do your research. Parties that are interested in your trade-in, such as a private buyer or a dealership, will have researched your car’s worth and will review a Carfax (a history report of your car). As the seller, you too, should be aware of this information. You especially want to make sure there is nothing showing up in the Carfax results that are errors. All the more reason to keep your vehicle’s service and maintenance documentation!

Finally, there is an excellent infographic (below) that expertly outlines numerous tips to help you increase your car’s trade-in value, as well as understanding which repairs (should your car require any), are worth doing yourself or are better-suited for professionals.

Do you have any other questions or advice you would like to share on maximizing trade-in value? Feel free to reach out to us on Facebook or Twitter. If you are thinking about trading in your current car, consider coming to our dealership for an appraisal. Please visit our website to see details such as location, hours of operation, and contacting us about setting up a meeting!
