Welcome to West Herr New York

Winter is coming, prepare your vehicle now

Winter in New York can be rough on the roads as well as on our vehicles. Now is a great time to prepare your vehicles for winter weather.

Most vehicle owner’s manuals have recommendations on how to prepare the vehicle for cold, snow and ice. Replacing dirty filters, like the air and fuel filters, can help a poorly running engine become more reliable. Fuel de-icer in the tank can keep the fuel line from freezing and changing the oil and oil filter will help prevent engine damage in harsh conditions.

Jeep gives employees first-hand look at the new Wrangler

As Jeep employees in Toledo, OH prepare to produce the 2018 Jeep Wrangler, the company used professional drivers to show them exactly what they will be building and, of course, why they're going to love it inside and out.

Jeep employees were taken on an off-road course to experience the full capabilities of the iconic 4-wheel drive vehicle. The Wrangler comes with two options, the Pentastar V6 and also a four-cylinder 2.0 liter engine that puts out 300 horsepower, so the employees were going to have a blast either way.

What Is Auto Start/Stop, and Should I Use It?

This feature being almost Universal in vehicles has been incredibly convenient for people, but often times it has also been incredibly frustrating when things don't work the way they're supposed to.

So much of the fun of driving comes from rolling the windows down and turning up the radio to your favorite summer jams. In generations gone by one of the first things you might do with a newer car is remove the factory audio system and replace it with a better one. Times have certainly changed, because built-in vehicle audio systems from the factory are exponentially better now than they've ever been before, even if you only got the baselevel audio system.

Life After Your In-Vehicle CD Player

 

I written before about how automakers are removing cd players from the in-dash entertainment systems of new vehicles. They're doing this for two reasons: first, anytime you can remove a component in a vehicle you save money. Many people tell you they don't use the CD player in their vehicle so manufacturers can remove them and inconvenience a small amount of people. Second, cd players take up space in your dashboard. New infotainment…
