Corydon Auto Repair Shop Gets Drivers Ready for Spring

While the weather may be having trouble making up its mind, the calendar doesn't lie: spring is in swing! As the season changes and we continue moving toward warmer weather, our Corydon auto repair center can't stress enough just how important maintenance is for your vehicle!

Seasonal vehicle maintenance

Just like many of us dive head first into spring cleaning at this time of year, it's also a good idea to treat this transitional season as a time to focus on ensuring that your vehicle gets the attention that it needs. Our team is here to help you make sure your car is properly taken care of this spring.

Springing Forward With Easy Car Care

First and foremost, start things off with an oil change for your vehicle. Clean oil is instrumental in keeping your engine clean, cool, and lubricated, so starting the season with fresh oil and a new filter is a great way to get the ball rolling.

Oil change service available in Corydon

Next up, be sure to check all of your other fluids. You should make it a point to check your fluids regularly, as topping them off can help your car to run its best. Noticing low levels early on can also help to uncover any underlying issues!

Spring is also a great time to change your windshield wiper blades. Snow and frost can really do a number on the rubber stripping, so replacing damaged or worn out blades is always a good move. This is especially true when you think of all the spring showers that will be rolling in!

To help our customers save, we're always offering auto repair specials for Corydon drivers. Many of these specials are sure to help you save on the springtime maintenance that your vehicle needs after a long winter.

For more information on the range of services we provide and how you can best prepare for spring, or to schedule a service visit, don't hesitate to contact the John Jones Auto Group by calling (877) 473-5546 today!

Have a Safe Adventure in Southern Indiana in the 2017 Jeep Wrangler

Jeep Wrangler for sale in Southern Indiana

The Wrangler's reputation for being rugged precedes it. Its iconic grille and bare-bones aesthetic are itching for the open road (or a trail). However, all the rough-and-tumble in the world wouldn't mean much if it was too dangerous. Our Jeep dealer in southern Indiana is thrilled that the 2017 Jeep Wrangler is as dedicated to keeping you safe as it is to providing you with an adventure on every drive!

The Essence of Great Engineering

With over 70 standard and available safety and security measures, you'll never feel safer than when you're at the helm of your Wrangler. Its high-strength steel pillars, designed to withstand a rough ride, mean that safety is built right into its bones. It's also equipped with a suite of advanced multistage front airbags, which are designed to deploy commensurate with the severity of the impact. Smart safety saves lives!

There are also a number of standard features that will help you make the most of the capability of the 2017 Jeep Wrangler as you trek around southern Indiana. For example, Electronic Stability Control (which includes trailer sway control) and Roll Mitigation will assist with steering compensation whether you're on the road or on the trail. When it's time to come to a stop, you'll appreciate the four-wheel disc Antilock Brake System. Built to decrease stopping time on any surface, you'll appreciate its stopping power.

The 2017 Jeep Renegade Falls in Line for Safety

2017 Jeep Renegade for sale in Southern Indiana

Though the 2017 Jeep Renegade may be a slight departure from the rest of its lineup, aesthetically, it's still Jeep through-and-through. It's as easy as looking at its commitment to safety: this Jeep has over 70 available safety and security features. At our Jeep dealer in Southern Indiana, we stand behind every single one of those features and we're excited to offer them to you!

Cutting-Edge Vigilance for Southern Indiana Drivers

You may think that safety technology only operates in panic situations, but Jeep has a number of high-tech features that operate in the background, keeping a watchful eye from Point A to Point B. For example, opting for the Blind Spot Monitoring System ensures that you'll always know who's at your back, as the vehicle will give an indication when another vehicle enters your blind spot. It's a simple concept, but it may be one that dodges an accident.

Similarly, the available LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist identifies lane markings and monitors your driving to see if there's a lane departure without a turn signal. The vehicle gives visual warnings as well as a slight shake of the steering wheel to alert the driver. Southern Indiana drivers are at the helm of a smart, alert, and vigilant SUV when they're driving the 2017 Jeep Renegade!

Back to the Roots

Though the tech is state-of-the-art, there's still nothing quite like the classics. The 2017 Renegade boasts a suite of dependable standard safety features that have your back at all times. Come for the seven standard airbags, but stay for the features that every SUV depends on, such as Electronic Roll Mitigation and Electronic Stability Control, which will ensure that all four wheels stay planted firmly on the ground.

Drivers who are serious about safety should consider a Jeep model for their next ride. After all, John Jones Auto Group has great lease offers for Southern Indiana drivers! Visit John Jones Auto Group today at one of our locations to talk to us about the Jeep models that you love.

Winter Driving Tips For Indiana Jeep Drivers

Winter is no longer coming, it's here. There's a lot of great things that come with it: holidays, hot chocolate, and snow come to mind initially, but winter can also bring some challenging driving situations. Jeep drivers are better equipped to handle those challenges than most, as vehicles like the Jeep Cherokee in Indiana have a legendary reputation for overcoming winter road conditions; however, there's still some things they can do to help iron out any icy bumps in the road ahead. Follow these tips to keep yourself rolling safely into Spring!

2017 Jeep Cherokee driving in winter weather in Indiana

  • Avoid driving while drowsy. Wintery conditions allow even less room for error than normal conditions. Be extra vigilant.
  • It may be tempting to run your car for a bit to warm it up before you get in. This is ok, but be sure you're not doing it in an enclosed area such as a garage. If toxic exhaust fumes are allowed to collect in an enclosed area, the result can be harmful or fatal.
  • Be sure that your tires are properly inflated. Cold weather can cause your tires to become underinflated, and overinflated tires will have trouble gripping the road in tricky conditions.
  • Always keep your gas tank half-full. Running out of gas in pleasant conditions is unpleasant. Running out of gas in the winter is downright dangerous.
  • In slippery conditions, don't even think about using cruise control. Maintain full control of your vehicle at all times.
  • Always wear your seatbelt.

Tips For Long Distance Winter Trips

The tips above are great for scooting around town, but long distance trips provide even more opportunity for something to go wrong. Before embarking on a long journey, be sure you're prepared by running through these tips.

  • Check the weather report before you hit the road. It's always better to be prepared.
  • Be sure that your vehicle is in optimal running condition. We recommend regular checkups at our Indiana Jeep service center year round, but this is especially important during the winter months.
  • Pack an emergency bag with blankets, gloves, hats, food water, and any other necessities you may need in the unfortunate event that you find yourself stranded.
  • If you get stuck in the snow, stay with your vehicle. That will make it easier for rescuers to find you, and it will keep you from getting lost in the snow.
  • Make sure your exhaust pipe isn't clogged with ice or snow. This can create a dangerous situation.
Here at John Jones Auto Group, the safety of our customers is our primary concern. Part of ensuring this is making sure that your vehicle is in safe driving condition. If you feel that your vehicle may not be running at optimum performance levels, don't hesitate to contact John Jones Auto Group by calling (877) 473-5546.

The 2017 Dodge Challenger: Five-Star in Every Regard for Indiana Drivers

When you're on the hunt for a sports car that will smoke the track, safety may not be your first concern. Luckily, it's always the first concern for Dodge. That's why our Indiana Dodge dealer is thrilled to announce that the 2017 Challenger has nabbed a five star safety rating from U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It's the highest rating available, and it's earned thanks to forward-thinking engineering and having the correct priorities.

Safety In Its Bones

To be clear, this is not an anomaly: this is the fifth time that the Challenger has received this sought-after designation. This year stands apart, as the 2017 Challenger offers over 70 standard and available safety features. However, it all starts in the frame: almost 60% of the Dodge Challenger's frame is comprised of high-strength steel. NHTSA tested it for impact at multiple speeds and it garnered five stars in each category.

There are airbags situated throughout the cabin, including advanced multistage driver and front passenger airbags. You can also count on active head restraints to reduce the chance of injury in certain types of rear impacts that may normally cause whiplash. There are also specially designed crumple zones situated on the exterior of the car that are meant to absorb impact energy. It's easy to drive the 2017 Dodge Challenger in Indiana with confidence when you're literally surrounded by safety!

High Tech and Forward-Facing

Some of the state-of-the-art tech features available on the 2017 Challenger significantly reduce the chances of a collision, and would absolutely stun those that dreamt up the first-generation Dodge Challenger in the 1970s! A particular highlight noted by the NHTSA is Forward Collision Warning (FCW), which uses forward-facing sensors to detect the distance between you and the vehicle in front of you, and if an impact is imminent, transmits visible and audible warnings to the driver. It also pre-fills the brakes, making them ready to act on your command. This is just one of the many futuristic technologies available to you on the 2017 Challenger!

If you're looking for the perfect balance of sporty and safe, your search ends with the 2017 Dodge Challenger, a NHTSA five star rating winner. Contact John Jones Auto Group today to set up your test drive!


The Camaro at 50: Indiana Chevy Shoppers Can Drive a Living Legend

What can you possibly do to celebrate the 50th anniversary of a living legend? No, we're not talking about your favorite rock group or TV show...we're talking about the Chevy Camaro. Our Chevrolet dealer in Indiana has been in the business for decades and there's no muscle car our customers love more than this pillar of automotive excellence!

Hit the Ground Winning

On September 29, 1966, the first 1967 Chevrolet Camaro was sold to, we imagine, one of the happiest drivers on the planet. Even then, the Camaro offered a wide selection of engines and trims so that every driver could find the power they couldn't live without with an aesthetic that would turn heads on every street. The top of the line was the Z/28, which was designed with track racing in mind. Though it was advertised as 290-horsepower, it was able to rev up to 400-horsepower, and it kicked off the first of six generations of proud and powerful sports cars.

50 years later, it remains equipped with the latest state-of-the-art performance technology and then some. Though Indiana Chevrolet drivers will find that the lifeblood of the Camaro, the engine, is still the main focus, some additions have made the driving experience more satisfying than ever. For example, shoppers can now opt for the exclusive Chevrolet Performance Data Recorder, which records a video of your driving sessions and provides real-time performance data. This is all stored on an SD memory card so you can review your technique and improve it the next time you hit the track.

An Unstoppable Icon

Of course, some things are just too sacred to change, like the basic look of the Chevy Camaro. Though there have been overall improvements to ensure better performance, the muscular body and prominent grille are a dead giveaway. This legacy of instantly-recognizable design is a product 50 years in the making, and we hope it'll continue for 50 years more!

John Jones offers great lease offers for Indiana shoppers. If you're ready to get behind the wheel of a 2017 Camaro, contact us to schedule a test drive and we'll be happy to get you going!

A Versatile RAM Truck Gets an Upgrade in Indiana

There's no end to the purposes of the RAM 1500, which is confirmed by its loyal following. Available in nine trims, your light-duty pickup needs will most assuredly be met in one of the many cab, engine, and bed configurations available to you. Though you've always had a lot of options in the RAM 1500, the 2017 model trims have some added features that shoppers at our Indiana RAM dealer will appreciate.

Set Higher Standards

To start, all of this year's RAM trucks receive a new five-micron cabin air filter, so you can breathe easier. From there, you can count on added standard features for many trim levels. For example, the Bighorn model offers a more comfortable and customized ride in 2017, with Automatic Temperature Control added to its already considerable list of standard features. You figure out the perfect temperature, and then you won't have to worry about adjusting again as the truck's climate control adjusts itself to accommodate your preset temperature.

The 2017 RAM 1500 Laramie Longhorn, the pinnacle of pickup refinement for Indiana drivers, has added LED bed lighting as a standard feature for more more convenient visibility when you're working with less light. You can also now also find SmartBeam, Keyless Go, and rain sensing wipers standard in every Laramie Longhorn to assist in inclement weather. You can enter the truck in a hurry and won't lose visibility on the road.

The Rebel Cried More, More, More

There are exciting advancements in store for those who love the RAM 1500's most exciting trim: the Rebel! This gritty off-roader can already hold its own in considerably adverse conditions, but the 2017 model ups its game by making Uconnect 8.4 (and its media hub) standard features, along with remote start, rear backup camera, rear park assist, and more. You've never had an off-road adventure that's outfitted so lavishly!

There's a reason the RAM 1500 has cultivated a mass of followers. Don't you want to see what the fuss is about? Visit John Jones Auto Group for a test drive today!
