A Letter from Herb
"Should I lease or buy my next new vehicle?"
I hear this question quite often! Most consumers experience lifestyle changes that prompt them to need or want something newer, bigger, smaller, safer, faster, or even for just some good old fashion fun. For many, a vehicle is a necessity and we are always looking for more economical ways to get behind the wheel of our next beautiful new car. 

Here is some helpful information to consider when you are ready for yours. Which side of the street matches up to you and/or your family the best?

2017 Jaguar XE
By NewCarTestDrive.com
2017 Jaguar XE
The Jaguar XE is the brand's new compact four-door, conceived and designed to be a serious challenger in a sport sedan market segment that's been defined and ruled for decades by the BMW 3 Series. This is the first time Jaguar has been a player in this arena since the X-Type (2001-2009).
Inspired by and developed from the superb F-Type sports car, the Jaguar XE's foundations are aluminum intensive and exemplary in terms of structural rigidity. Basically a rear-drive platform with the option of four-wheel drive, the architecture is shared with the new Jaguar F-Pace crossover sport-utility and will also be adapted for another sedan in the not-too-distant future.
Like the F-Type sports car, the Jaguar XE delivers that rare connection between the machine and the individual behind the wheel: the vehicle as an extension of the driver's will. Handling is excellent. This new Jaguar sedan is as quick on its feet as many sports cars.

Decoding Dashboard Indicator Lights
Click to learn what the most common dash indicator lights mean
Throughout the year, we get many phone calls and visits from customers who have indicator lights on their dashboard but have no idea what they mean!  Indicator lights are your car's way of telling you that, while it may not be an emergency, something underneath the hood isn't working to the best of its ability.  We all know that car repairs can be expensive and time consuming, so getting those lights diagnosed quickly can sometimes mean the difference between a quick visit and a costly repair.
To help you better understand what your car is trying to tell you, we went to our Mercedes-Benz service department and asked about the most common indicator lights that bring people in and what those lights mean.  Click here to find out what we learned!

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee
By NewCarTestDrive.com
The Jeep Grand Cherokee remains a benchmark combining luxury with off-road capability. Last redesigned for 2011, the Grand Cherokee is in its fourth generation.
2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee
New to the lineup is the 2017 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, fitted with front/rear tow hooks, skid plates, 18-inch off-road tires, and a unique air suspension. 2017 Grand Cherokee Summit and 2017 Grand Cherokee SRT editions get exterior revisions and upgraded leather.
Handsome and capable, the Grand Cherokee comes in six distinct flavors, to serve as a premium family wagon, a wilderness trekker, a hauler of trailers. Each version is capable of tough workhorse duties, and the hot-performing SRT savors racetrack duty.
Four engines are available, starting with a 3.6-liter V6. Developing 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, the V6 is equipped with a fuel-saving engine stop/start system.  The optional 5.7-liter V8 produces 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet, capable of towing a class-leading 7,400 pounds.  For efficiency and bountiful torque, the optional turbodiesel 3.0-liter V6 generates 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet. EPA-rated at 30 mpg in highway driving, the diesel promises a range greater than 730 miles.
Each engine drives a responsive 8-speed automatic transmission. An optional air suspension can boost Grand Cherokee highway mileage even further, by lowering at highway speeds.
Ultimate on-road performance is the province of the Grand Cherokee SRT, packing a 6.4-liter V8 that whips up 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. Acceleration to 60 mph takes just 4.8 seconds. Equipped with launch control, the SRT is one of the top-handling SUVs available.
