Winter Car Care Tips!

Winter is fast approaching so here are some tips for taking care of your car through the season from Justin Lynman, the service manager at Lexus Rivercenter:

First and foremost, BATTERIES! Always have your battery checked when it starts to get cold. It is a lot harder for a vehicle to start in the cold and with as many electronics modern vehicles have in them, today batteries have their job cut out for themselves! Most batteries have a life of 4 years or so (some earlier, some later).

Second, tires! Many people find out they need tires when they really need a tire (i.e.; flat, blow out, slick roads, etc.). It's a quick check that will save you grief later. If your luck is like mine, you'll get that flat tire in the middle of no where with no cell service and pouring rain!

Third, check your fluid levels! A happy car is one with plenty of fluids. 

Last, winter weather will usually beat up on your wiper blades. Make sure you have new blades on before those big storms hit. No one likes a half clean windshield!

2013 Lexus ES Premiere Event

I recently helped Lexus RiverCenter and Performance Lexus plan and host a "2013 Lexus ES Premiere" event. We held it at Kenwood Country Club and I suggested a fall theme... calling it "The Event of the Season: 2013 Lexus ES Premiere."

The day of the event ended up being a beautiful, crisp fall day and we had a tremendous turn-out. We had a string quartet, yummy drinks and fare, a fall-themed photo booth, swag bags for everyone, gourmet cookies from Queen City Cookies I customized with a Lexus logo on it, amazing door prizes (spa packages, flights to Mexico, and a stay at a luxury resort in Atlanta just to name a few!), and a grand prize of a 2013 Lexus ES one year lease!

The event was spectacular! See below to check out a few pics, and click here to see the full album!
