Common car accidents in the U.S and how to avoid them

Many of the car accidents in the U.S. are mainly caused by human error. The majority of these accidents are minor and do not result in fatality or serious injury but the bottom line is that it happened in the first place. Even if being careful it is still possible to end up in a car accident. So here are just a few common car accidents that occur in the U.S. and how they can be prevented.

Driving whilst distracted Girl riding in car in Washington with head out window

With the input of new technologies it adds a new possible distraction. Having said that things like eating food or drinking, looking at a map, having your navigation system on silent, taking phone calls without a headset, getting ready in the car etc are all classed as distractions. Avoiding doing things like these while driving means that more of your attention is focused on the road rather than what is happening inside your vehicle.

Drunk driving

cool guy driving car

Drunk driving is up there with one of the most common and most dangerous causes of accidents in the United States and statistics show it has one of the highest fatality and serious injury rates out of all of the possible causes. The simple solution is if you have had anything to drink, you and the public are safest if you take a taxi home or get someone who has not been drinking to pick you up.

Speeding

Whatever your reason for speeding, whether it be because your wife is having a baby, oror late for work or you just like driving fast the outcome is always the same. The reason does not make the action any less dangerous. This is the second most common cause of accidents in America. Have a look around and look out for the signs that tell you the speed limits or get your navigation device to inform you when the speed limits change and stick to them.

fast driving on highwayReckless driving

All of the above with the inclusion of some others like changing lines without indicating, and overall acting aggressive on the road are forms of reckless driving and it can be very dangerous for both yourself and those around you. As a driver you have got to try to keep any anger issues or things that are frustrating you outside because the moment you bring it into the car and start driving it becomes dangerous. Try to remain as calm as possible.

Rain

Sometimes driving in the rain is completely unavoidable the best you can do is to try to drive as safe as possible. It is common to underestimate how rain can change how your car drives on the road. So try to drive safely, do not slow down however because this could be as dangerous as speeding up and if the rain becomes too much then in no circumstance must you continue driving. Look for somewhere safe to pull over and wait for the storm to pass.

Having a safe vehicle is also very important for staying safe on the road. If you are in the market to buy a new car, or if you need auto financing in Olympia, contact Washington Auto Credit today!

Should You Buy The Fiat 500 or MINI Cooper?

The Fiat 500 and MINI Cooper are both incredibly stylish vehicles perfect for turning heads while cruising around the city. For many shoppers, it comes down to deciding between the two for their next new car. So which one is better?

Style92166B-2012-FIAT-500

Walking onto a car lot, the first thing a buyer notices is likely to be the shape and style of the different vehicles. Comparing the Fiat 500 and the MINI Cooper, the first thing consumers typically notices is that they are both small and slick, with unique style. There aren’t any other cars out on the road that look like either of these two models. The MINI Cooper takes the boxy look of an SUV and compacts it into a neat little package. The Fiat 500 has a style completely of its own, however. Sleek, continuous lines from the headlights to the tail lights make for an absolutely stunning car that passers-by simply cannot resist staring at.

Price

Price is a huge factor in making a car buying decision. Consumers aren’t necessarily looking for the cheapest car, but the best value. That said, with a price tag starting around $15k the Fiat 500 easily beats out the MINI Cooper’s comparatively prohibitive cost of around $24k both in terms of price and value.

ReliabilityMini_Cooper_1.6_-_Flickr_-_The_Car_Spy_(8).jpg

Esteemed marketing services firm JD Power and Associates releases reliability rankings for all new cars. The reliability rating offered by JD Power is based on problems that may cause a complete breakdown of any given component. The Fiat 500 received a predicted reliability only two out of five. The MINI Cooper received a slightly higher rating of three out of five. MINI Cooper wins the reliability category by a hair.

Gas Efficiency

The MINI’s base model comes with a 134 horsepower turbocharged 3 cylinder engine, which yields a pretty impressive 29 mpg city, 40 mpg highway efficiency. The Fiat 500’s slightly smaller base engine- 101hp 1.4 liter turbocharged 4 cylinder engine – yields a slightly more impressive 31 mpg city, 40 mpg highway efficiency. With its smaller body and slightly less powerful engine, the Fiat 500 easily wins the fuel economy competition.

Safety

Both the MINI Cooper and the Fiat 500 earned a four out of five star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Both of these vehicles offer modern safety accoutrements: anti-lock brakes, side curtain airbags, and traction and stability control. Both of these cars fall short on a few modern safety implements. Neither of them feature the lane departure warnings, collision detection, or blind spot cameras, as hatchback drivers rely less on these features than drivers of SUVs.

Final Words

While seemingly similar in size, style, and performance, it is clear that the MINI Cooper and the Fiat 500 offer remarkably different experiences. The slight advantage that the MINI Cooper has over the Fiat 500 in reliability is simply not enough to downplay the incredible value of the Fiat.  While the MINI Cooper offers a more luxurious experience, the Fiat 500 offers significantly greater value with a lower price point, better fuel efficiency, and a more unique and stylish look.

Cool Jeep Modification Ideas

Whether you just bought a new Jeep, or have had one for years, the thought has probably crossed your mind to add some aftermarket modifications to it. All-terrain vehicles inspired by the original military Jeep are a great medium for modification, whether your purpose is off-roading or just for looks. Here are some of the best aftermarket modifications to truly make your Jeep your own.

Winch

Arguably the single most important modification for a Jeep, a winch can be of assistance both on the road and off road. If you and your friends enjoy driving around in the mud, a winch can help pull a stranded car out of a mud puddle that was deeper than expected. Or perhaps you are cruising down the highway during a snowstorm and see a stranded motorist. A winch can help pull them out of the ditch in no time, with no cost to either of you other than your time.

Tires

If you’re going off roading, you’ll want something other than M/T or Toyo tires. Even if you just live and commute where mud and/or snow are constant threats, you shou

S8876-2011-Jeep-Wrangler-Unlimited

ld consider upgrading to mud and snow tires. You might consider swamper tires if you really enjoy off-roading. You may even opt for a larger tire size. Just be aware, you’ll want to re-gear your differential if you do go large.

Lift

Most Jeep enthusiasts opt for getting a lift kit as their first major modification to their Jeep. Lift kits increase your Jeep’s clearance, breakover angle, approach angle, and departure angle. This comes with the obvious added benefit of being able to go over larger obstacles without risking getting stuck (but your buddy has a winch, so go big!) Make sure to choose a lift based on your primary excursions. If you ride around the sand dunes, you’ll want a solid coil over system. If you’re travelling through deep water or large boulders, a spring lift kit is desirable. Also be sure to consider your tire size, and adjust your lift accordingly.

Rock Slidersjeep rock sliders

If you plan on doing any rock climbing, rock sliders are key. This modification protects your Jeep while doubling as a step into your now lifted vehicle. They also work as a side recovery point, should you happen to flip your Jeep. This piece of equipment protects against damage from rocks, trees, other vehicles, and human negligence in the parking lot. Keep your Jeep looking good for longer by installing rock sliders. You will not be disappointed.

Lockers

Differential lockers, if not already included on your model, are a key addition. This piece of equipment keeps both wheels spinning identically, to give you better traction in deep mud or other challenging landscapes. If you opt for an air differential locking system, you get the added bonus of an onboard air compressor to inflate any flat tires, or to use with any pneumatic tools you choose to carry on the road (or off the road.)

If you are interested in purchasing a new or used Jeep near Olympia, we have some great options to choose from. We carry a great selection of Jeeps that are already loaded with accessories! Contact Washington Auto Credit to learn more at (360) 975-4739

Toyota Prius Vs. Tesla

They’re some of the two biggest names in the world of automobiles: the Toyota Prius and Tesla. Tesla has been making headlines for all kinds of innovations; for example, the company’s solar powered roofs are expected to be less expensive than current roofing methods. When it comes to cars, however, do Tesla’s cars match up to the Toyota Prius? Look below to find out!  

Toyota’s new Prius appears to be everything we hoped it would be – inexpensive and environmentally-friendly. With this model, Toyota provides a great alternative to Tesla’s plug-in cars. For one thing, it currently stands at twenty-seven thousand dollars, which is much less than Tesla’s. Even Tesla’s model three, which is considerably inexpensive, costs thirty-five thousand dollars which is eight thousand more than the Toyota Prius. For this reason, if for no other, many are turning to the Toyota Prius for their needs.

But the reasons why you should be choosing the new Toyota Prius go beyond the money. The 2017 Toyota Prius is available across all 50 states of the US. For those who are waiting for their Tesla orders to be filled at the end of 2017 or in 2018, Toyota may be a better option.

The 2017 Toyota Prius has upgraded several of its features; for example, it’s lower than its predecessors. This means that the passengers have more headroom than they would in previous models of the car. Not only this, but the 2017 Prius is sleeker and cleaner than other Prius models. With new LED taillights and a completely redefined look, this plug-in is a dream for anyone who’s looking for an alternative to Tesla.

On the inside, the 2017 Prius Prime has an 11.6-inch screen that mirrors Tesla’s design. This provides the passengers and the driver with a new, technologically-advanced feeling that previous Toyota Prius’ were severely missing. The major downside to the car’s system is that it does not have Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, yet. That being said, there’s always a possibility that it will be included in future models.

toyota prius plug in modelSeventy percent of all of Toyota’s hybrid models happen to be Prius’; in fact, Toyota has a total of thirteen hybrid cars that are sold in the United States. On top of its many bonuses, the Toyota Prius Prime is more fuel-efficient than previous Prius’. Given the current cost of gas, along with the greenhouse gas situation our world is facing, this is perhaps one of the most attractive qualities of the new Toyota Prius.

In a world that is becoming more environmentally conscious, hybrid cars are becoming more popular. Most people make the decision to avoid plug-in cars altogether because of the price tag that comes with them, especially if they’re looking at Tesla’s hybrids; however, Toyota has come out with an excellent alternative with the 2017 Toyota Prius. Whether it’s the specs, the overall style, or the affordable price, any hybrid lover or anyone interested in hybrids should be looking at the 2017 Toyota Prius for their transportation needs.

Tips for Paying Less on Auto Insurance

There are a lot of different things in life that costs us a significant amount of money, but unfortunately, some of them are required. While this is really unfortunate and definitely something that we all kind of hate, at least we can make the expense slightly less painful through a handful of different methods and tips. If you just follow a few simple and pretty logical steps, you can ensure that you spend the least amount of money possible on those things we can’t get away with not having, like auto insurance.

Do your Research

If there’s one thing that will cost you money, it’s not actually looking into what the best deals are before committing to one. There are a ton of providers of auto insurance out there and they obviously offer different types of deals. That said, why would you not look around to see who is offering the best deal? Imagine if you missed out on saving fifty dollars a month just because you didn’t look any farther than the first provider you stumbled across.

Package Policies

Many insurance providers like to offer discounts to their clients if said clients purchase multiple policy packages for them. They say that buying in bulk is the best way to save money, and for the most part it is true. The same can be said even of auto-insurance, so you may want to consider purchasing a package deal from whatever insurance provider you choose as your own. Remember that even if something looks more initially expensive, it can often be the cheapest option in the long run.

Possess a Higher Deductible

If you are willing to take on the higher risk that comes with a higher deductible, than you can save yourself a significant amount of money on premium costs. While this does mean you will have to pay more if you ever do have an accident, your own ability to drive safely mostly affects that, meaning it could be more beneficial if you are a careful driver. That said, be ready to pay more out of pocket if you end up having such a situation.

Deal with an Auto specific Insurance Company

There are a lot of insurance companies out there that deal with a wide variety of different insurance types. On the other hand, there are some insurance companies that deal only in a specific kind of insurance. If you can, it is almost always better to deal with those companies, because they usually have better deals for their particular insurance type.

In the end, we are required to pay for auto insurance. But that doesn’t mean we can’t save some money on it by following a relatively simple and straightforward handful of tips and tricks. Just keep in mind what you can do and what risk versus reward trade offs you may be making, and you are sure to save considerably more money in doing so.
