A Letter from Herb
In 2016, AAA reported that an estimated 3 billion dollars were spent on vehicle repair bills related to pothole damage.

Herb Chambers Service Center
Potholes are the inevitable result of winter and early spring moisture and the freeze-thaw cycle. From bent rims, shaking wheels, and the dreaded blown tire, our service departments have seen their share of wheel damage at the hands of potholes.
The real problem isn't always just the damage, but not knowing what to do.   We want to help you, our readers and our community, with tips on what to do if you see or, worse, hit a pothole.

2017 Toyota Tacoma
2017 Toyota Tacoma
The Toyota Tacoma midsize pickup truck, partially redesigned for 2016, is the most rugged truck in its class. It's the best truck for commuting over boulder fields or hauling a dirt bike through the desert. It's tough, reliable, and highly capable over rugged terrain.
The 2017 Toyota Tacoma lineup includes a new TRD Pro model that raises the suspension by one inch, and adds skid plates, all-terrain tires, black alloy wheels, cat-back exhaust system, LED driving lights, and badging on the grille. The Tacoma TRD Pro includes the off-road features of the Tacoma TRD Off Road model.
The 2016 model year brought new powertrains for the entire line, with a new hood and front fascia, a redesigned cabin structure, tuned suspension, upgraded features, and noise insulation.

Reduce Risks While Taking Care of Business
How to reduce risks from distracted driving
The pace of business never seems to stop, and thanks to the convenience of cell phones, many people work on the go, even while they're driving. Yet cell phone use is one of the most common type of distracted driving, and it claims thousands of lives and causes thousands more injuries every year.

Recognizing the ethical and liability issues that arise when employees drive while distracted, employers across the country have begun implementing distracted driving policies. Typically, these policies prohibit employees from using cellphones while driving on company time.

Approximately 20% of Fortune 500 companies have instituted cell phone bans, and of those, just 1% believe the ban affected productivity.

Taking care of business doesn't mean you have to risk a crash. Here are six ways to keep up with the pace of business without using your cell phone in the car.

What is Mercedes-AMG?
Mercedes-Benz AMG
If you're looking for a real "driver's car", something that combines everything you expect from Mercedes-Benz with the power, performance and unforgettable sound of a race car, consider the Mercedes-Benz AMG.
Started in 1967 by two automotive engineers who fine-tuned engines for race cars, AMG is the high performance division of Mercedes-Benz.  AMG's core focus is creating something that cannot be mass produced. Following the philosophy, "One Man, One Engine," each engine is hand built from start to finish by one of 50 AMG Master Engine Builders.
Offering luxury, class, and refinement in addition to power and performance, you can be sure that the craftsmanship doesn't stop at the engine. Inside each AMG vehicle, one of the first things you'll notice is the sleek, cockpit-like interior that puts everything you need right at the tips of your fingers.  The perfectly-fitted leather is soft, supple, and hand-stitched.
