CANBY FORD - Great deals can be yours at Canby Ford!Anyone who’s purchased a car knows just how arduous and confusing the process can be. The car market is vast and intimidating, and that doesn’t even begin to factor in those sellers who are more than happy to cut an unfair deal.

At Canby Ford, we want your car-buying experience to be as painless as possible. Whether you’re still on the hunt or you think you’ve already found the perfect car, here are 5 questions to ask during your search:

1.) How is it equipped?—Even if features such as cruise control or a sunroof are featured in a car’s ad listing, it’s good to double-check and confirm everything is in working order.

2.) Has the car been damaged?—If it’s a new car, it may have suffered damage during shipping, and if it’s used, you’ll want to find out its accident and repair record. Get any service records you can for the vehicle.

3.) How many previous owners?—Any vehicle that has had more than two owners is less than desirable; more owners can indicate reoccurring vehicle issues.

4.) Can I take a test drive?—Get inside and check how the seats feel, whether there is ample room, how the vehicle handles at low and high speeds, etc.

5.) Would I be happy with this car?—Ask yourself if you can really imagine yourself in a vehicle like this. If you can, you may have found your next car.

MCLARENS CARPET ONE - Steve McLarenFirst thing to remember when getting ready for the holiday season: It’s about the spirit of the season and sharing it with family and friends. Decorating your home should add to the fun and spirit of the season; it should be something to look forward to and enjoy.

If the motivation is right, here are a few simple things to inspire your creativity:

  • As an alternative to garland, use standalone evergreens throughout your home to bring in the rich wintery green tones.
  • Hang matching wreathes in your windows to share the holiday spirit with those passing by.
  • Greet friends and family with a festive entryway decorated with simple items like garland, potted poinsettias, decorative holiday mat and cheerfully wrapped gift boxes.
  • Even a simple everyday meal can be dressed up with a few holiday-inspired elements like green ivy, pine cones or a crystal vase filled with candy canes or shiny ornaments.
  • Carry your decorating theme throughout home. Add red and green guest towels to the bathroom; holiday coffee mugs and dinner ware for festive meals; small Christmas trees in the bedrooms; seasonally inspired throw pillows for the sofa and the bedroom.
  • Keep your home smelling terrific by using potpourri, candles and nightlights with scents of the season.
  • Most important, relax and enjoy the holiday season with friends and family.
  • After the holiday season, visit us at McLarens Carpet One. We’ll show you how to freshen up your home with new flooring, counter tops and window coverings in the spring.

    GUSTAFSON INSURANCE - Tim GustafsonHave you ever had an important phone call or text message come through while you were behind the wheel? It's a common situation that many drivers face, and it can too easily result in dangerous distracted driving. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at least eight people are killed and 1,161 are injured in crashes involving distracted drivers each day.

    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration classifies driving distractions in three ways: visual (taking your eyes off the road), manual (taking your hands off the wheel), and cognitive (taking your mind off the act of driving). To stay safe, set some guidelines for yourself and other drivers in your family:

    Eat snacks and meals before you start driving.

    Never apply makeup, finish dressing or attempt grooming while driving.

    Avoid electronic distractions by mapping routes before you begin driving and disabling text and email push notifications on your phone.

    Use Bluetooth or other hands-free devices in an emergency.

    If you need to address a distraction, wait until you can pull over to a safe spot.

    Distracted Driving Laws

    Many states now have laws and regulations surrounding common driving distractions. As of September 2016, 14 states, the District of Columbia and three U.S. territories have banned the use of handheld cellphones by those who are behind the wheel, and 46 states as well as the District of Columbia have outlawed text messaging while driving.
