How to Decide: Buying a New Car, or Leasing?
If you’re in the market for a new car, you’ll quickly notice how much lower monthly lease payments are compared to getting financing for a new vehicle purchase. What makes leasing so much less money each month? Leases are financing a much shorter timeframe: just how much you’re going to use the car during the period of the lease. With a new car purchase, you’re financing the cost of the car over a longer time period. So what is the best option for you? Should you lease, or is buying the car a better decision?

Time to Think “Tires”
“With the recent temperature drops, people may be seeing their tire pressure lights go on more now. Tire pressure does drop with the drop in temperature, this is normal. But if it is a recurring problem, it’s a good idea to make sure there are no leaks and that their tires are safe for winter,” advises David Cyr of Hoffman Nissan. Get the low-down on choosing tires, and whether to use snow tires. (photo from repairpal.com) Read More

2015 Honda CR V named Motor Trend’s SUV of the Year
Motor Trend held its second-largest Sport/Utility of the Year competition this year, testing out 19 individual contenders before choosing the 2015 Honda CR-V as the winner. Testing took place in Los Alamos, California, where judges took each SUV out for a winding road loop through hilly California countryside before debate the merits of each and, finally, casting their votes for the finalists. Finalists were taken out for a longer drive plus an off-road course with five miles of loose dirt, steep hills, and tight turns (we’ve got plenty of all of that in Connecticut as well!).

New 2015 Ford F150 Arrives Soon
There’s excitement brewing at Hoffman Ford in East Hartford over the impending arrival of the brand new 2015 Ford F150 trucks. We spoke with Charlie Hartley, Commercial Truck Manager, who just returned from a Ford training seminar all revved up about the new F150.
“The biggest news, of course, is the new aluminum body, which saves 700 pounds of body weight,” Charlie explains, “and that lighter body is military-grade aluminum. There are different grades of aluminum, and military grade is over 6000 series. This truck will be built with 6200 series. It won’t create red rust, plus it will have better fuel economy and more cargo capacity.” Read More
