Why Your Car’s Interior Material Matters

The primary materials used for car interiors include nylon, leather, vinyl, polyester, and fabric. The more elegant and high quality the interior material is, the more it adds to the value of your car. But a car interior material matters for many other reasons. You can have a single material or hybrid varieties of materials on, for example, seat covers.

The material selected impacts:

  • Comfort: Leather offers a high level of comfort, and stays cool in hot weather, yet it is the most expensive car seat material. It is often used in luxury cars. Vinyl is a popular choice for automobile upholstery. Comfort level may be affected by temperature, as vinyl tends to become hot or cold in respect to ambient temperature. But with any material, the most comfortable depends on your preferences. It is highly important because of the amount you invest in a car and how much time you spend driving.
  • Durability: Extreme durability makes leather a popular choice, while nylon is durable yet affordable. Vinyl provides a high level of quality and can hold up over time in a range of conditions. It can last for a long time, although cracking and tearing can occur in high temperatures and excessive use can cause the material to loosen. It may also shrink with exposure to the sun. Lighter colored broadcloth, a wool blend, won’t bleach as easily in the sun.
  • Maintenance: To protect leather, it must be conditioned. Otherwise it can crack and peel in hot temperatures; however, it is easy to clean. Vinyl can be easily patched and repaired and that’s why many car owners prefer it. While broadcloth is easy to clean by vacuuming, it may require steaming to remove stains, while velour requires periodic vacuuming with a brush attachment to clean dirt trapped in the fabric. The less maintenance needed, the less demand in upkeeping your car.

Cost is a major factor when it comes to choosing a material. If you can afford luxury, a high-quality material such as leather is a practical choice. However, there are many lower-cost options that can meet your style, comfort, and maintenance expectations.

When selecting a car interior material, consider what best serves your needs. Usage is an important factor. Upholstery that’s resistant to wear and tear may be more beneficial in the long run if your car takes a lot of abuse. Car seats with nylon upholstery are durable and inexpensive. Your experience with car seat materials and covers also matters; building on your own preferences and experiences, which may differ from other car owners, helps go with your instincts and insights when deciding on materials that, for example, used cars in our lot may include.

Interior materials differ greatly from one to another in many ways. What looks great now might not look so later. Abuse, weathering, temperatures, and sunlight are just a few things that can degrade a material, so where you live and how your vehicle will be used can influence what material you ultimately decide upon.

Top 8 Car Essentials

When you’re on the road, you never know when an emergency is going to crop up. A few car essentials can be very helpful if your vehicle breaks down; some can even be lifesaving. Therefore, the question you should always ask yourself is: “What should I always have in my car?”

To answer that, here is a list of eight essentials you should always have:

1. First Aid Kit

A first aid kit is an essential item you can easily stow in the glove compartment. Whether or not your vehicle breaks down, minor wounds require immediate care. Some of the supplies can even provide preliminary care for more serious injuries until emergency help arrives. You can stop the bleeding or prevent infections that can complicate matters further.

2. Spare Tire

If a tire blows out or goes flat, a spare can get you back on the road until permanent repairs can be made. But if you do have a spare tire, check it from time to time to make sure it’s in good condition. A tire jack and tire iron should be kept handy as well. Also keep a sealer to plug a leak, a tire inflator, and a pressure gauge.

3. Jumper Cables

A dead battery can happen in any vehicle. Jumper cables connect to the battery terminals, so you can get juice from a friendly stranger. An emergency battery booster is an even better idea because you won’t have to worry whether someone will stop to help.

4. Hazard Equipment

Brightly colored hazard triangles, vests, and flares are essential when you get stuck on the road at night. They ensure you and your vehicle are visible. A lack of visibility can put you in serious danger if other drivers can’t see you.

5. Fire Extinguisher

It’s rare for cars to catch fire. But with a hot engine, fast-moving parts, and flammable gasoline, having a fire extinguisher is a good idea. In an emergency, there’s no question as to whether you need one or not because an extinguisher can save your life.

6. Duct Tape

Duct tape can fix just about anything, and anything in a car can break. Whether you need to seal up a ripped bag, cover up a broken window, or seal up a hole in a panel, strong tape can hold until you can get to a repair shop.

7. Flashlight

You’ll need to see if you get stuck at night. A good flashlight can help you change a tire or get a sense of your surroundings. It can also help you notify other drivers of your presence, or even flag them down for help.

8. Phone Charger

Whenever everything else goes wrong, it seems our cell phone batteries go dead. Having a phone charger enables you to stay in touch with family and friends during your emergency. You can also call for help and maybe get a towing company to come out at night.

These are just a few essentials; you also don’t want to forget water, a warm blanket, and a change of clothes. Even some kitty litter helps if you need to get off a slick spot.

SUV-Car-World

The Benefits of Buying an SUV

Sports utility vehicles are among the auto industry’s most popular choices. Buying an SUV is a big decision for families, business people, or just about anyone. You may wonder why upsizing might be such a good thing. An SUV is bigger than a car, so it must cost more. But starting with cost savings, here are several benefits of an SUV you might not know of.

Better Gas Mileage

In today’s market, many new SUVs are rated at over 30 miles per gallon on the highway. There’s also more room than a standard passenger car, meaning you can get more accomplished in a single trip (moving more people/cargo from point A to point B), saving fuel and therefore cash in your wallet.

Extra Seating

Fewer trips back and forth also saves time. Some SUVs, such as the Mazda CX-9, seats up to seven people. The entire family can fit in at once, including the dog! Even stow a pet carrier in the cargo bay or put in a barrier to let your dog enjoy its own space.

More Comfort

An SUV is more comfortable because there is more room. The vehicle can carry more weight, so manufacturers can offer comfortable seating with added features. Greater head and leg room mean drivers and passengers aren’t likely to feel crammed in.

Safety

SUVs have the same standard safety features as cars, including airbags, anti-lock brakes, traction control, and driver assistance technologies. Even so, they’re also safer because of their size and stronger steel cage. An SUV can tolerate a stronger impact and hold up in floods where sedans and coupes would easily be swamped.

Storage

Many SUVs have second- and third-row seats that fold down, expanding the available cargo space. You can quickly stow away furniture, luggage, and just about anything else. A large tailgate makes loading simple, and many models have remote opening functions that make loading/unloading cargo even less of a hassle.

Towing Capacity

You don’t even need the best SUVs to have a decent towing capacity. Go on a boating, camping, or fishing trip and even tow along your motorcycles. Many SUVs come standard with towing equipment and even trailer sway control systems, whereas in a car you’d have to install a towing kit, which often ends up being a futile effort.

Higher Ground Clearance

A truck chassis frame gives an SUV greater height above ground. Not only does this give the driver a convenient elevated point of view. It also leaves room for a better suspension that can handle just about any type of terrain. Most models ride very much like a sedan. And despite their truck-like design, SUVs cost much less to purchase and insure than a truck.

Off-Road/All-Weather Performance

In an SUV, you can drive on paved roads just as well as in mud, sand dunes, and deep snow. The latest vehicles outperform most cars in heavy rain. Whether riding on smooth ground, on rugged terrain, or up a steep hill, you’ll get unbeatable performance and reliability.

Buy a Used SUV at CarWorld

At CarWorld, we stock the latest used inventory of Audi, Cadillac, Dodge, Ford, Lexus, Nissan, Porsche, and Volkswagen SUVs among other leading brands. We can help you with buying an SUV to find one that fits all your wants and needs, and which has undergone a rigorous inspection to ensure it is road-ready. Combined with aggressive financing, this means you can drive away the same day. To learn more, call 833-219-9951 or visit us in Hawthorne today.

10 Things You Never Knew About Henry Ford

People usually associate Henry Ford’s name with one of the most popular car companies in the world—Ford Motor Company, and the development of the assembly line. One of his goals was to make cars affordable to ordinary people. The Ford Model T was his invention, but there are many little-known Henry Ford facts. Here are just a few of them.

  1. Henry Ford began life on a farm in Greenfield Township, Michigan. His father insisted he’d take over the farm after his mother’s passing. Having no interest in farm life, Ford pursued engineering, leaving home at 16 and heading to Detroit to work as an apprentice machinist.
  2. Henry Ford was promoted by the Edison Illuminating Company to Chief Engineer in 1893. He was on-call 24 hours a day. At the encouragement of Thomas Edison, he left 6 years later to work on his gasoline automobile. His first efforts to establish an automobile company were in collaboration with Edison; they formed the Detroit Automobile Company in 1899.
  3. He saved Edison’s last breath inside a test tube, while the inventor was on his death bed. The test tube is still on display at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.
  4. Ford was almost a politician. President Woodrow Wilson convinced him to run for the Senate as a Democrat, in 1918. Despite not investing a cent in his campaign, Ford lost by only 4,500 votes.
  5. The Ford Airplane Company was started during World War I. Ford was recognized as a pioneer in aviation in 2002 by the U.S. Centennial of Flight Commission. Due to poor sales, the company shut down in 1933.
  6. His passion for airplanes ran beyond production. Ford set out to build a flying car and manufactured a prototype. A test drive resulted in the death of the driver and the project was soon abandoned.
  7. Ford loved driving cars as much as making them. As a young adult, he was a racecar driver and spent time working on engines; later in life, he hated car racing, but was inducted into the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America in 1996. His passion for engines can be seen even earlier; Ford built his first steam engine in 1878, at 15 years old.
  8. Ford is sometimes credited for the 40-hour workweek and inventing the weekend. He believed in the importance of rest for his employees, and that time off allowed people to spend money, which improves the economy.
  9. In order to obtain a steady supply of rubber, Ford tried to build a city within the Amazon. Although the land purchased was the size of Connecticut, Fordlandia didn’t live up to its concept. The locals didn’t take to working on assembly lines in a factory. Today, the area remains abandoned.
  10. Ford built the first moving assembly line in 1913. Ransom E. Olds, inventor of the Oldsmobile, used stationary assembly lines first. Fords concept reduced the time to build a chassis from 728 minutes down to 93 minutes. The moving system included feeder lines to supply parts when and where they were needed.

What to Do Before Selling Your Car

CarWorld accepts trade-ins and sells used cars. If you’re wondering how to sell your car, there are a few steps you should consider. Trading in a vehicle is usually a straightforward process. You might even save on your next car. But selling your vehicle to a dealership requires preparation. To get the most out of the deal, here’s what to do before selling your car.

Know Your Car’s Value

Many people look up the make, model, and year of their vehicle to determine its value. Dealerships rarely consider online tools. Your best bet is to compare it to sales of similar vehicles in your area, factoring in mileage, condition, and trim level. The vehicle’s history is important as well. You probably have all maintenance and repair records if you were the only owner. If someone else once owned the car, find its vehicle history report from sources like AutoCheck or Carfax, checking for recalls or accidents.

Inspect and Fix Up the Vehicle

Look around carefully. Dents and dings you didn’t notice may be the first thing the dealership sees. See if they can be buffed out. Also, check for any issues with the tires or electrical system. If you spot any wear or flaws, they should be fixed before you consider negotiating a price. Fix any scratched paint, oil leaks, or broken lights. Recovering your investment is a factor here, but many parts, especially those associated with electrical issues or an oil leak, can be fixed affordably compared to how much a dealer may knock off their offer.

Thoroughly Clean Your Car

On the outside, do a careful cleaning. Going for a carwash can help, but it is not enough. You’ll need a fresh coat of wax too. Clean up the interior by first getting rid of personal items you stored in your car all these years. A steam cleaning can leave the carpeting and seat fabric looking like new. You also want to pay careful attention to the cleanliness of the dashboard, windows, and practically every surface inside the vehicle.

Get Your Documents Together

Gather all records associated with the car, including the title, registration, and service records. Your vehicle will have more value if you’ve kept up with scheduled maintenance. Have all receipts and records of service with you to present to the buyer. If you haven’t found the vehicle history report, the dealership can find it if necessary.

Make Sure All Accessories Are with the Vehicle

If your vehicle came with extra sets of keys or hardware such as SD cards for the navigation system, for example, make sure to include them. These features are part of the vehicle. If they’re missing, you may not get as high an offer when trading it in.

Get Multiple Offers

Once you get an offer from one dealership, visit a second one, and so on. Compare competing offers to get the most value for your car. It is then up to you who to do business with.

Go to CarWorld

Our used car dealership offers the best way to sell your car. All vehicles are purchased at fair market prices. You can even use our online trade-in calculator to estimate what your vehicle is worth. Once an offer is made, we’ll help you find a car that meets all your wants and needs. Aggressive financing can mean you drive away the same day. Submit your details online, but also feel free to visit our Hawthorne dealership in person or call 833-219-9951 for assistance.

What to Look for When Getting New Tires

When buying new tires, there are many choices to make. Finding the best new car tires can improve performance, reliability, and safety. But new tires cost at least a few hundred dollars. Knowing how to buy tires can help make the most of your investment, but you need to know what to look for.

Types of Tires for Your Car

Three general types of tires are on the market. All-season tires are most preferred; they handle all weather conditions and offer year-round peak performance. They grip the road in wet weather and, to some extent, even in snow. You’ll get traction, and more so with high-performance all-season tires. Featuring a lower profile, grand touring all-season tires provide superior snow traction with a lower profile.

Winter tires allow precise stops and turns on snowy or icy roads. However, they don’t handle well in warmer weather. Summer tires are suited for use during the warmer months. They perform well in dry and wet weather. Steering response is sharper while less distance is needed to stop your car. However, summer tires lose their grip at temperatures below 40°F.

Vehicle Model

Ultra-high-performance tires are more suited for luxury vehicles. If you own a standard sedan, regular all-season tires should do. In any case, finding the best tires for your car is important because the wrong ones can waste a lot of money and lead to poor handling. The requirements of each vehicle differ. Your best bet is to match new tires with the ones installed in the factory.

Size

It’s also wise to pick the same size tires your car came with. First, you need to know the vehicle’s tire size, which is listed on the sidewall. A short series of numbers and letter describes the maximum width of the tire, in millimeters. This also indicates the aspect ratio, or how tall the sidewall is compared to the tire width (as a percentage). Higher numbers indicate taller sidewalls. The diameter of the wheel in inches reveals what the tire needs to be mounted to.

Speed Rating

Letter designations, ranging from L to Y, reveal how fast a tire can safely go for long periods of time. Original tires are typically matched to the maximum speed your vehicle can reach. The speed rating also includes a built-in safety margin.

Tread Wear Rating

The tread-wear rating helps estimate how many miles your tires might last. It is also listed on the sidewall. Higher numbers correspond to longer-lasting tires. However, there is much variability since the testing to determine treadwear isn’t that precise. The manufacturer’s tread-life warranty might provide a more accurate picture of expected longevity.

Other factors to look for include run-flat performance, meaning you can drive a short distance even with a punctured tire with no air. Where to buy is another consideration; shopping around at warehouse clubs, local shops, or your dealership can help save, while various online retailers sell automotive tires as well. And always watch out for extra fees (installation and/or disposal fees and taxes), damage during installation, and whether an alignment is needed after installation.

10 Road Laws You Might Not Know Of

In a driver’s education course, you’ll learn about traffic laws, road signs, and other aspects of driving and owning a vehicle, including proper car cleaning. Breaking the law can get you ticketed or arrested. At that point, you may not be thinking about the best car cleaning products. But you might not be aware of some road laws, as every state in the U.S. has its own unique set of rules.

1. California: Driving While Wearing a Bathrobe Is Illegal

By law in the Golden State, women cannot wear a bathrobe while driving. This is an official mandate, but in a state where people are especially image-conscious, it would seem unnecessary.

2. South Dakota: You Can Be Charged with a DUI While Not Driving

A person in complete control of a vehicle can receive a DUI charge, even if they are holding the keys outside the car’s ignition while intoxicated.

3. Kansas: Pedestrians Are Required to Use Taillights at Night

Crossing a Kansas highway at night? You must be wearing taillights, although there are no guidelines as to where to attach them, if they should be brighter when you stop, or blink when you make a turn.

4. New Jersey: You Cannot Pump Your Own Gas

New Jersey law forbids civilians from pumping their own gas, at any time, per the Retail Gasoline Dispensing Safety Act of 1949. It’s the only state in the U.S. where this applies.

5. Pennsylvania: Drivers Must Shoot Skyrockets on Rural Roads at Night

If you are driving on a country road in the dark, you must stop and fire a rocket signal every mile, and then wait ten minutes. This is just in case any unsuspecting livestock are ahead.

6. Nebraska: Drivers Must Stay to the Right on Mountain Highways

Always remember this when driving through Nebraska’s mountains, and note there are no mountains in this state. Nebraska is in the heart of The Great Plains.

7. Georgia: Spitting from a Car or Bus Is Illegal

No matter how much phlegm you cough up and must get rid of, you can get jail time for spitting while driving in Marietta, Georgia. However, it is legal to spit from a truck. It’s also illegal to spit on a roadway in New Mexico, where it’s a misdemeanor.

8. Texas: Driving within an Arm’s Length of Alcohol Is Forbidden

Even if someone else is doing the drinking, it’s illegal to drive if a container of alcohol is less than an arm’s length away. Yes, intoxicated people shouldn’t be anywhere near the steering wheel.

9. Rhode Island: Never Pass Someone without Making an Audible Noise

There are no guidelines on what constitutes an audible noise in the case of an automobile, so every vehicle is in compliance (unless you’re driving an electric vehicle in silent mode).

10. Indiana: Keep Your Head Under the Sunroof in South Bend

It is illegal to drive when any person or object is hanging outside or on top of the vehicle in question.

Gas-pumps-at-gas-station

What Gas Should You Be Putting in Your Car?

When you visit the gas station, you may make a habit out of choosing one type of gas. There are usually three grades of gasoline—regular, mid-grade, and premium. But what is really the best gas for your car?

Gasoline is designated by its octane. Despite what many people believe, higher octane gasoline does not provide your car with more energy. Higher octane fuel is more resistant to pre-ignition, also called knock due to the sound it makes. Whether you should use regular, premium, unleaded, or other types of gas should be indicated in your vehicle’s manual.

The most common types of gasoline for cars include:

  • Regular Gas: An octane level of 87, which is usually the cheapest, is suited for cars that won’t run better by using premium fuel.
  • Mid-Grade Gas: An 89-octane gas is less costly than higher octane fuel, but is not needed unless the manufacturer specifies your car requires it.
  • Premium Gas: Cars using premium require 91 or 93 octane gas; in older cars, a lower octane fuel can cause engine damage. However, modern cars with knock sensors can retune the engine to avoid preignition, although power and fuel economy may be reduced.
  • Diesel Gas: Diesel fuel is formulated for engines that inject air after it is compressed, rather than mixing it with fuel before compression as a gasoline engine does. In the U.S. and Canada, you’ll usually find just one grade of diesel fuel.
  • Biodiesel Fuel: Made from vegetable oil, biodiesel contains varying percentages of biodiesel and petroleum-based diesel. Use it only if the owner’s manual specifies your engine is BD-capable; otherwise, methanol in the fuel can damage rubber components in the fuel system.

What Gas Should I Really Be Using?

Using a lower octane than specified will reduce engine power and gas mileage. Using a mid- or high-grade octane gas in a car that requires regular is basically just wasting money. If premium gas is recommended but not required, regular unleaded gasoline should not affect the engine performance. High octane gas is more suited for turbochargers and high-compression engines, like those installed in sports cars.

Another factor that can influence what octane to use is altitude. Gas stations at higher elevations may sell fuel with lower octanes, such as 85. Lower octane fuel is better-suited for driving in thinner air, which lowers the engine’s compression ratio. But this is more relevant for cars built before 1975; newer engines can adjust automatically to lower oxygen levels.

If you’re driving to higher altitudes, and your car needs premium fuel (which may be hard to find), fill up beforehand at a lower altitude. But if you’ll need to gas up again before coming back, get the least amount of fuel you need (making sure the octane is as close as possible to the vehicle’s requirements), and add fuel of higher octane along the way. It will dilute the lower-octane fuel and average out the octane in the tank; just fill up with high-octane gas as soon as possible.

Best Car Cleaning Products

Properly cleaning your car keeps it looking brand new and allows you to show how much pride you have in it. Car cleaning can preserve the paint and finish. Otherwise, your vehicle might start to look dull and full of dirt and grime. If you’re worried about getting scratches or paying the costs of a carwash, there are car wash products you can use to avoid these concerns.

First, you need a good foaming soap that’s eco-friendly. A larger version of a soap compound is a good idea; it lasts longer so you get more for your money. A more concentrated formula is best, while an alkaline soap is effective at breaking up acidic dirt and grime. However, choose the most neutral pH formula as possible to avoid corrosion. A quick drying soap will avoid water spots and streaks.

As for the best car cleaning products, some of the best ones on the market include:

Meguiar’s G17216EU Ultimate Compound

Plus, the solution is biodegradable. There are no artificial colors or additives to deal with either.

Meguiar’s G7101FFP Gold Class Car Wash 

Shampoo and condition your car at the same time. This advanced formula washes and cleans your car to reveal its true color and clarity. Also, the foaming wash protects your wax coating. It is used by professionals, car enthusiasts, and by owners of bold-colored cars. A half-gallon can provide 8-10 washes worth of compound.

Adam’s NEW Car Wash Shampoo Gallon

This foaming wash produces a thick lather, with just a few drops in a bucket full of water. The pH balanced formula will not strip off a wax coating and suspends dirt and grime particles. It is even effective at washing away water spots. A single washing results in a lubricated feel.

Mothers 05674 California Gold Carnauba Wash & Wax

Suited for professionals and beginners, the product includes Carnauba Wax that provides the same gloss as a regular car wax, with the same level of shine and protection. It is concentrated and has a neutral pH, so no watermarks or swirls can be seen after use. The product is biodegradable as well.

Griot’s Garage 10866 Car Wash

Not only does it wash your car, this product includes special brighteners, which enhance the shine and color of your car’s paint job.

Advantages of In-House Financing

Car buyers often rely on outside lenders to finance their vehicle. If your local dealership offers in-house financing, this might be a better option. The seller, in this scenario, confirms a loan so a customer can purchase its products, while the firm relies less on the financial sector to support high-value transactions. In-house financing is often used in the automotive sector to increase sales volume and provide customers with a broader range of services.

For a business, financing customers’ purchases allows it to complete more deals in a shorter time. The firm can also manage the entire transaction process. This makes it simpler to, for example, buy a car. For consumers, this means:

An Easier Purchasing Process

Obtaining a loan from an outside institution can be a time-consuming process. It can take hours or days to get pre-approved for a loan. At buy here, pay here dealerships such as CarWorld, this process is much shorter. You can be pre-approved within minutes, and whether you have poor or no credit is not a concern. As a result, you may drive a car off the lot days earlier.

Fewer Hassles Qualifying for Financing

Dealerships offer more flexible options for people with fair/poor credit. While low-interest rates and monthly payments aren’t guaranteed, higher interest rate loans can potentially be refinanced after a year or so. Regardless of your credit, you may qualify for refinancing if you are responsible, consistent, and make monthly payments on time.

Added Benefits 

Dealers often add perks and incentives to financing. You might encounter variable interest rates, which can save you money in the long run. Extended warranties may also be available, protecting your investment and covering regular maintenance such as oil changes, brake and tire service, and inspections or even automotive body work and repairs.

An Opportunity to Build Your Credit

One of the biggest benefits of in-house financing is an increase in your credit score. You may notice this a month or two after your purchase. Obtaining financing through your car dealership is, therefore, an effective way to improve your credit, which can open the door to lower interest rates on future loans, such as mortgages, and make it easier to be accepted into a rental property.

A More Flexible Deal

Car financing offered by your dealership is available to many customers. Since there’s a steady influx of applications, the dealer might accommodate your needs, working within your budget and offering options that are best suited for you. It might be possible to choose from a wider selection of cars—and receive a few incentives along the way.
