Chance to Be Bad Giveaway with Dodge

Chance to be bad giveaway

While this blog post likely won’t “kickstart your heart” as much as Motley Crue’s famous song, the chance to win a 2015 Dodge Charger, 2015 Dodge Challenger, a once-in-lifetime opportunity to meet the band, and other great prizes just might do the trick.

As part of Dodge’s “Chance to Be Bad Giveaway” any of those great prizes could be yours. The 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger aren’t just any old trim though. They are the top-of-the-line trims, the 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker with 485 hp and R/T with 300 hp, respectively.

The “Chance to Be Bad” promotion goes hand in hand with another Dodge promotion that is currently generating a lot of attention, the “Double-Up Lease Guarantee.” The exclusive Dodge program rewards those who lease a 2014 Dodge Charger or 2014 Dodge Challenger by allowing them to lease a new 2015 model of either car for no additional down payment. Should you choose to buy a 2015 model after leasing a 2014 model, you’ll get $1,000 lease to retail bonus cash incentive.

All in all there has probably never been a better time to be a fan of Dodge’s amazing muscle cars or Motley Crue. At Rochester Hills we’ll definitely be imagining blaring “Wild Side” and cruising around town in a 2015 Dodge Charger a lot more often now since it’s our only real chance to be bad.

Jeep Celebrates Easter with a Jeep Safari

Easter is this weekend, and no matter what your faith, it is likely you’ll take part in the traditions of painting eggs and eating candy or you at least know about them. If you’re a Jeep fan, there is an even better non-religious tradition to celebrate… the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. Check out the video from the safari last year:


This year, Jeep is filling the Easter baskets of car enthusiasts with six new concept vehicles including three Jeep Wranglers, two Jeep Cherokees and a Jeep Grand Cherokee. The vehicles have been specially tuned, customized and painted just for this weekend’s event. However, unlike most concepts, these Jeeps aren’t just for show.

“We look forward to putting these new Jeep vehicles in their proper environment and receiving important feedback from our most loyal customers at their favorite annual off-road gathering,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC in a Jeep press release.

While you won’t find the same kind of rock climbing that is available in Moab at the Easter Jeep Safari here in Rochester Hills, there are some great places up North where you can take your Jeep off-roading and enjoy all the trail rated features.

2015 Dodge Charger Unveiled at the NY Auto Show

New York auto show

New York City is the known to many as “The City That Never Sleeps.” It is a very fitting nickname, especially around the time of the NY Auto Show. All eyes are on the Big Apple as automakers try to make a splash for the upcoming sales season.

Dodge is joining the ranks of those grabbing attention with one of their most popular models and the most-successful four-door muscle car in the world – the 2015 Dodge Charger.

Although not much is known about this version of the charger, according to a Chrysler press release the all-new charger has received an overhaul to the body design. Dodge designers decided to re-sculpt almost every panel of the Charger to give it a more sleek and modern look.

An article also speculates that the 2015 Dodge Charger might feature a similar powertrain as the 2015 Dodge Challenger, mainly a Hellcat V8 engine. If you haven’t heard already, the Hellcat V8 is expected to produce hp similar to that of the V10 found in the SRT Viper.

While a lot of this is yet to be confirmed and we’ll have to wait a few weeks for the 2015 Dodge Charger to be unveiled to know for sure on any of it, it is just the kind of excitement we love to see surrounding the Dodge brand as a Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram dealer.

Spring Car Care Tips


Spring means many things to many different people. Whether you’re thinking about the fact that it is tax season, all the lawn work you’ll be able to do, how you’ll need to clean up the house, or you’re just excited for less snow and more warm weather. In any case, there is a lot to think about come spring.

One thing that often gets overlooked or take a backseat, no pun intended, is car maintenance. We don’t blame you; it is not the most exciting topic or most pressing. However, make sure you at least check out these three spring car care tips.

1. Service

While it is always important to regularly service your car, truck, or SUV it is even more important come spring. That is because all that wet, cold and downright nasty weather you’ve hated this winter – your car was out in that a lot and wasn’t too fond of it either. Weather like that can weaken belts, weaken brakes, and can even cause your car to use oil at a faster rate.

2. Check the Battery

Winter conditions can accelerate the draining of your car’s battery. Be sure to look for some of the tell tale signs of a weakened battery, including dimmer than usual headlights, interior lights that no longer turn on or seem less bright and power windows that seem to go up or down slower than usual. Of course these problems could be unrelated to the battery, but they are often an early indication of a failing battery. You can also check the juice this way.

3. Inspect the Tires

Tires can get worn down during a long winter of driving on slick roads, icy conditions, and salt/sand so it is important to check your tires when spring arrives. Even if you have great brakes, a tire with not enough tread can make stopping a difficult task. This CBS News article demonstrates how to use a penny to check tire tread.
