About Me

A Family Vehicle

For the first 10 years of my life, I was an only child. Then, my younger sister was born. She definitely changed our family for the better. However, after my sister’s arrival, my parents soon discovered the family needed more space. Our house suddenly became too small. In addition to our home, my parents decided the family needed a larger vehicle. So they set out to purchase a minivan. They fell in love with a blue one at a local auto dealership. The kind salesperson allowed my parents to test drive the minivan over an entire weekend. After keeping the automobile for two days, my parents were hooked. On this blog, I hope you will be inspired to begin your search for the vehicle your family will make unforgettable memories in for the next several years.


Affordable Ways To Modernize Your Luxury Pre-Owned Car

They don't make them like they used to, but in some ways, that is a good thing. There are many new features and amenities found in new cars that weren't placed in older cars due to these technologies not being available yet. However, just because you own a luxury pre-owned car that you don't want to give up, doesn't mean that you have to live without these modern luxuries. 

Listen To Music Through Your Smartphone Or MP3 Player

Even cars that aren't very old likely have an outdated sound system. Newer cars usually pair with smartphones and MP3 players, which allows you to have a maximum number of options when determining what music you would like to play. Consider having satellite radio installed so you will have a much broader range of radio stations to choose from. Your luxury car can feel newer while spending less than $200 in most cases. Updating the audio technology will also bring a return on investment because more car buyers will be interested in your car. There are many services where you can order the equipment and the equipment will come with a pre-paid installation card that you can take to a local audio installation specialist.

Charge Multiple Devices With A USB Adapter

While newer cars often come with USB adapters to allow for mobile devices to be charged, this is likely not a feature found in an older car. You can fix this by purchasing a USB adapter that plugs into your car's charge port. Make sure to purchase a two-port adapter because you never know when you need to charge more than one device. 

Project The Speed Of Your Car Onto The Windshield

Rather than regularly look down at your speedometer, look at the speed your car is traveling from the windshield. There are products that can be placed on your dashboard and will project the speed of your car onto the windshield, allowing you to avoid accidentally going over without having to take your eyes off the road. Newer cars often have this technology already built-in, but you can enjoy it in your older car at a low cost.

The list of tech upgrades listed here is not exhaustive, but these represent some of the most useful upgrades. But regardless of what you choose, you will be able to enjoy an old, luxury car while still feeling like you are in the 21st century. For more options you can add to luxury pre-owned vehicles, talk to a dealer like Bay Ridge Nissan.
