Spring Clean Your Ride!

1. It's time to get your ride back into prime shape!

People hit the gym and work on getting “back” into shape before the summer season! Spring time is the right time to get everything looking great! You should make the same decision for your vehicle? Regular maintenance and tune-ups at the scheduled times will not only keep you running well but will give your vehicle and  all of it’s parts a longer life! Consult your vehicle owners manual for regular oil change schedules, check-up/tune-up  intervals and simple items like tire pressure, oil and fuel type.

 

2. Looking “BUFF’ is good for your cars soul! Time for the spring workout.
It's always nice to drive a clean and shiny car, there is more than just visual appeal to having a clean car. Regular washing, buffing and waxing will maintain and keep your cars paint and clear coat in good condition. This in turn keeps the road grime and weather to a minimum and will reduce long term corrosion and rust spots. Having the headlights buffed will keep your lights bright and allow you to see the road ahead! Keeping the inside clean is important too, carpet shampooing along with changing the air filter!  This can reduce internal allergens floating around in the cabin of your car and help you reduce airborne allergens and illnesses. This is especially important coming out of winter during a harsh cold and flu season in Colorado.

 

3. Don’t drive angry, don’t drive angry (remember Groundhog Day?)

Here, I offer you a little "car yoga" exercise, and you don’t have to stand on your head. Take a deep breath and relax behind the wheel. Aggressive driving is known to increase your fuel use by a significant amount; some say as much as 30%!!! Wow! Want to save money at the pump? Slow down, give yourself more time and planning your routes ahead of time are just a few of the many things you can do to save money and gas!

 

4. Tire pressure - your gateway to a smooth ride.

Measure your tire pressure regularly, as this will keep your vehicle ride smoother and believe it or not, the right tire pressure will improve fuel economy. As it warms up outside, the air in your tires expands and after winter, your tires need more attention. Cold temperatures decrease the air pressure in tires, which adds to the rolling resistance caused by snow and slush. Low tire pressure is what turns on the funky little light in the dash too (TPMS – Tire Pressure Monitoring System). This is a safety feature and can let you know when you are running low, or are going flat


From everyone here at McCloskey Motors, we hope you have a fantastic Spring Break and enjoy an awesome Colorado Summer!!

To our Friends & Relatives, 


The Colorado Springs Area has been tremendously affected by the recent Waldo Canyon Firestorm. Thousands of people have been evacuated and hundreds of people will be in shelters for a long period of time. Hundreds of homes have been incinerated and thousands of homes are damaged.

As you may know, Ann, Julie, & myself have been evacuated for several days and do not know the status of our home and it may be several weeks or months until we are able to be back in our own beds. We are all fine and are anxious to return to our home or what is left of it. There are so many people less fortunate than us, some have lost a loved one and some are still missing or unaccounted for. Our close friends' homes have been incinerated along with all those affected by this tragedy.  

With the outpouring of local support, this is still sure to be a long term relief effort. I have received numerous calls from relatives, friends, and people with whom we do business asking what they can do to help. Together with our management team, Ann and myself decided the best way to gather as many donations as possible for the relief effort, is to facilitate a donation event, here at at our business at 


6710 North Academy Blvd. 
on July 5, 2012
3 p.m. - 7 p
.m.
  


This event will be broadcast LIVE on up to 8 radio stations at one time and will be going on from 3 pm until 7 pm that evening.  While there are a bunch of people bringing items, food and household goods to donate - what these efforts really need is money for the things these organizations that don't get donated. Therefore - CASH IS KING.

We are investigating each resource to make sure their donation stays here in Colorado Springs, to be used for this tragedy, and that they are credible resources. We ask that you join us in donating what you can to this effort. This is our town, our city and we take care of our own.

We have invited these local organizations to attend the event:




Any amount you can donate will make a significant difference in the effort.  No amount is too small (or too large).

If you can't attend the event but would like to send a cash donation, please make your tax deductible donation payable to one of the above organizations referencing the "Waldo Canyon Relief Effort" and mail it to 

Waldo Canyon Relief 
Donation Station 
c/o McCloskey Motors 
6710 N. Academy Blvd. 
Colorado Springs, CO 80918  

OR You can certainly drop off your donation in person on Thursday July 5, 2012 from 3 pm until 7 pm.

If you have any questions about the event please call us at 
(877) 389-6671.


Sincerely

Joe & Ann McCloskey
