Thanksgiving Travel Tips

Thanksgiving Travel TipsThanksgiving is a great time of year to visit far-flung family. However, travelling to see them during the holiday rush can be a big hassle. AAA estimates that nearly half of all Americans will travel more than 50 miles from home for Thanksgiving. Here are a few Thanksgiving travel tips to help you along the way.

  • Stay positive. Whether you’re flying or driving, keep in mind that everyone else is going somewhere, too. Be courteous, be patient, and stay positive.
  • Stay charged. Make sure all your devices are fully charged when you hit the road. Bring along portable chargers for when you don’t have access to an outlet.
  • Pack lightly. Overpacking can cause big problems, especially if you’re flying. If you pack light enough you can avoid checked baggage fees.
  • Bring food. You want to stay energized for your trip. Pack high-energy, healthy snacks and you won’t have to overpay for overpriced junk food along the way.
  • Leave early. If you’re driving, avoid leaving during rush hour. Try to leave early in the morning or later in the evening to skip out on most of the traffic.
  • Use travel apps. There are numerous apps that can help save time, money, and stress, whether you’re flying or driving. Apps like GasBuddy, Waze, and others will come in handy.

Getting Your Car Ready for Fall

It may still be warm outside, but with Labor Day past, it’s time to start thinking about fall and getting our cars ready for when the weather turns cool. Here are some tips for getting your car ready for fall.

Fall maintenance is basically pre-winter maintenance. For fall, you want to make sure you check your oil and get an oil change if necessary—and if you do get an oil change, make sure you’re getting a multi-grade viscosity oil that will be good for winter driving.

Car Ready for FallGo for a battery test at a parts store where you can do it for free. Extreme temperatures are hard on your battery, so you want to make sure the summer heat hasn’t killed it and that it’s in good shape to withstand the winter cold.

Now is also a good time to get new windshield wipers. Winter is the hardest time of year on your blades, so it’s a good idea to get some that are designed for good winter performance.

Check the coolant levels. Antifreeze is hugely important in winter, and if you have low levels or some kind of leak, you want to get it fixed ASAP.

Check the tire pressure. It’s still warm right now, but as it gets colder you might start to lose pressure, which reduces your tire traction.

Just remember, winter is coming…

New Nissan Sentra Gets New Features, No Price Bump

Most cars get a slight refresh each year, even if they aren’t entering a new generation, but many of these improved vehicles still get a small price hike due to the inclusion of new tech and features for the new year. However, the new Nissan Sentra for 2016 just received a number of brand-new features, as well as a tweaked exterior design, and brand representatives have announced this 2016 model will not be more expensive than the previous one.

Rear cross traffic alert, which detects other cars while backing up, and blind-spot monitoring are brand new to the Nissan Sentra’s repertoire, boosting the compact sedan’s safety score. Buyers can get these new features by adding on the new driver’s assist package, which is an additional $1,020 and includes integrated navigation.

The new Nissan Sentra is an attractive option to budgeting buyers who find the standard Sentra’s $17,650 price tag appealing. Additionally, the new Nissan Sentra helps drivers save on gas as well with a 40 mpg highway fuel rating according to the EPA. Because of the base Sentra’s low price, add-ons such as the driver’s assist package are significantly less costly and easier to obtain.
