Resources for Drivers

Preferred Car Buying

Members AutoChoice wants to congratulate these recent customers on their automobile purchases. Thank you for doing business with us!

Everyone hates bad drivers, and at some point or another, everyone is a bad driver. We all have times that we are too distracted, too tired, or to hurried to make good driving decisions, but what are the absolute worst things that people do? What are the most dangerous or the most annoying things that people do every time we step out on to the road? Let’s hear some opinions!

  1. Ignoring Blind Spots – It seems like at least once a week that someone merges into my lane, or at least starts to merge, without even glancing first. It’s like they don’t even know other drivers are on the road at all.
  1. Tailgating – Come on now people! If you really think that riding directly on a driver’s bumper is going to motivate them to go any faster, you’re truly out of your mind. You’re not saving yourself any time, and [...]

Child Car Safety: Kids & Pets Left in Hot Cars

When summer arrives and the temperatures start rising, so does the risk of heat-related injuries in animals and children left in vehicles. Here are five animal and child car safety tips to keep everyone safe this summer.

  • Never leave children in the car, even to run a quick errand. In just three minutes in the sun, car interior temperatures can heat up from 78 to 100 degrees, putting your kids in danger of hyperthermia or heatstroke.
  • Don’t take your pooch “on a ride” if they can’t come inside. If you are driving to destinations where you cannot bring your pet inside with you, don’t bring them in the first place. Leaving them alone in a hot car will only put them at serious risk. According to PETA.org, pets can suffer serious injuries when left in a hot car for only 15 minutes.

5 Ways to Quickly Save $500

Members AutoChoice works most closely with Peach State Federal Credit Union as a lender – and depending on your loan, they can have down payment requirements that range from $500-$2000. So what are the best ways to go about saving that money quickly? It sounds like a difficult task, but can be a lot easier than you think. Here are five ways to quickly save $500.

  1. Stop eating at restaurants! The average per person bill at a restaurant (fast food included) is $10. If you eat out 3 times a week, that’s $120/month you’re spending at restaurants alone.
  1. Reconsider those habits. Maybe you drink 3 sodas a day, or smoke a pack a day, or drink a few beers after work. There’s nothing wrong with any of that, we all have our vices, but these habits cost you thousands of dollars per year. A pack-a-day [...]

Drivers are constantly reminded not to use mobile devices while operating a motor vehicle.

Recently, the National Safety Council (NSC) released data showing that twenty-seven percent of car crashes – 1,535,490 in 2013 – were caused by some form of mobile device distraction.

Most cars 2010 and newer are equipped with Bluetooth Hands-Free devices from the factory. So why are people using a handheld devices while driving?  If you have an older vehicle there are over ten top rated Hands-Free devices available.

Just to name a few:

  • Plantronics Voyager 520
  • Plantronics Voyager Legend
  • JX10 Series II
  • Jabra Storm

If you own an Android or iPhone, you have built in Bluetooth connectivity. Again, I pose the question; So why are people using handheld devices while driving? It is distracting, inconvenient and unsafe.

That being said, according to The National Safety Council, more than thirty studies show Hands-Free devices are no safer than handhelds due [...]

Members AutoChoice is an independently owned and operated car buying service and dealership. While we have been working closely with Peach State for nearly 15 years, we are not one and the same.

The first stop is always our inventory. Plain and simple: We put money in our vehicles so you don’t have to. There are not many feelings worse than having to repair something you just bought.
