Why Lease An Albemarle Honda?
 
Individuals will find exceptional packages when looking to lease at Albemarle's Tim Marburger Honda. Your local dealer will help you get behind the steering wheel of a new vehicle. Through leasing, you do not have the hassles and stress associated with purchasing a new automobile. Additionally, your contract to lease an Albemarle Honda puts you in the driver's seat traveling down the road throughout the vehicle's first and best time of its operational life. Here are some additional benefits you will derive from leasing a Marburger Honda:
 
Cash Down Payment - is going to be far less than that what you would need as a down payment for purchase. This is probably one of the best reasons for consumers seeking to get behind the wheel of a new automobile. In many situations, the sales tax leasing a new vehicle can be included in your monthly payment as opposed to having to chalk up a lump sum at lease beginning.
 
Monthly Payment - is also going to be far less if the finance period is the same as one if you are purchasing the vehicle. The monthly payments are calculated upon the vehicle's depreciation estimate. The payment is lower since you are using only a portion of the vehicle's value as opposed to purchasing the entire value as you would when buying a new vehicle.
 

Get A New Vehicle More Often- everybody typically has changing tastes and preferences. Leasing makes it more effectively easy to drive a newer model more frequently than if you were to purchase an automobile outright. Your need for either a larger or a smaller vehicle may change every so often making the lease option an easier way to plan for your transportation needs.
 
Future Value - no worries about future sales value. If the leased car happens to depreciate more than it's estimated residual value, when the lease contract comes to term, you simply turn it in at the end of the lease term. However, if the value is much more, you have the option to purchase it or even resell it.

"Why You Should Lease a Honda"

Why You Should Lease a Honda :
Leasing A Honda is a very smart decision considering the following facts. When you lease a Honda , you pay only a portion of the vehicle's cost. Since you are only paying for the Honda while you lease it, payments are 30% - 60% less. In most cases you have the option of not making a down payment, and you only pay taxes on your monthly payments. Your first payment will be due at the time you sign your contract. 
A Honda Lease payment is made up of two parts; the finance charge and the depreciation charge. The finance charge is the interest on the money the Honda dealership has tied up in your New Honda while you are driving it. You repay part of the money in your monthly payments, and repay the remainder when you either buy or return the vehicle when the lease term ends. 
If you want to drive a new Honda at the best possible payment, leasing is the way to go.
So remember three reasons to lease your next Honda.
One- Lower Payment
Two- Little or no downpayment
Three- Easy Turnover

"How to Wash a Car"

Good Old Fashioned Car Wash
 
Do You Wash Your Car at Home?...Must See Tips-

Car wash Q and A.

Is it better to wash my car often?

Yes, but as easy as washing your car at home

may seem there are a few precautions to take

so that you can avoid accidental scratches or finish

degradation.

Did you know?...

Do not wait for build up of road sludge to accumulate before washing.

Things like dead bugs and birds droppings leach acids that literally strip away
wax

and can ruin the paint.

Be sure to wash  off bugs, bird droppings, and tree sap as soon as possible.

Otherwise a weekly carwash should be fine to keep your car's finish in tip top condition.

What kind of products should I use to wash my car?

Mild detergent solutions sold in automotive shops are best.

Warning- Products under your kitchen sink or dishwashing liquid can be too harsh. Go ahead and spend a little money on a good carwash solution to preserve
the finish and protect your investment.

Apply using a natural sponge or lambswool cloth.

A stronger product specific to the lower side of the car may be required to removeroad tar, grease, and rubber. Use a nonabrasive cloth to wash away these damaging elements.

Cleaning wheels and tires is a whole new topic.

You might need a dedicated cleaning product for wheels. Be sure to check for compatibility on your particular wheel covers.

Extra Care -

Don't wash a hot car. The temperature will increase the chance for spots and soap deposits.

Don't move the sponge in circles. This can cause swirl scratches.

Rinse well.

"Best Color for Your Honda?"

What is the Safest Car Color?

The National Safety Council has something to say about the color car you drive.

What's your guess?

Red, blue, silver, two tone? How about a NASCAR with logos from hood to trunk?

The NSC sums it up in one sentence-

the safest car color is "one that is highly visible in the widest range of lighting, weather, and vision conditions."

Hummm. So what they are saying is...it depends?

Some studies support the idea that lighter color cars are safer than darker.

One series of tests done at the University of California concluded that drivers react to blue and yellow cars in a certain way becasue they seem

closer. But gray cars seem further away.

Color Affects Behavior

Red causes more aggression. ( Depending on the sports team- Ha Ha!)

Some colors attract more attention-

White- is noticed more at 86% compared to others.

Black, blue, and dark red were noticed as low as 4%.

A study in New Zealand related car color to accident injury.

Brown cars had the most injured drivers. Black and green also showed higher risk of injury in accidents.

Silver cars had the lowest risk. They were half as likely to be involved in an accident that lead to injury than darker cars.

Oh, Well-

In the end-- there is no conclusive proof that there is ONE safest color.

It's all about the situation-

Factors such as night, day, weather incluiding fog, rain, snow, and bright sunlight are big factors. It is thught that yellow is best in these

conditions.
