Best Winter Tires to Buy in 2018-2019

550 × 366

Growing up in one of the many snow belt regions of Ontario, it never occurred to me that people would drive in winter without snow tires. I got my license in a blizzard and on my first solo drive, hit a massive ice patch near my best friend’s house.  If you’ve decided to make the switch from all-season tires to legit snow tires this year in Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville or Toronto, we can’t blame you. Have you seen that Farmers’ Almanac prediction about the coming winter? Because we love you and your passengers here at Ontario Chrysler…

550 × 309

Although there had been some resistance to offering an electric automobile when FCA was presided over by the late Sergio Marchionne, plans to pursue electrification have resumed under succeeding CEO Mike Manley. In June, the 7th largest carmaker in the world indicated that it would invest close to 10.3 billion dollars in electric and hybrid models over the next five years of production. The aim: to become fully compliant with emissions regulations across European regions. What does that mean for drivers in Mississauga, Brampton and Toronto?

Buzz for the Ram Mid-Sized Pickup and The Jeep Scrambler | Toronto & Mississauga

550 × 309

Just because you live in Mississauga, Toronto or Oakville doesn’t mean you don’t really want a pickup truck. A quick glance at the parking lot at work or the mall speaks volumes: trucks aren’t just for country life.  City dwellers have been in love with trucks for years now, but the pickup segment is on fire, with Ram 1500s flying out the door here at the dealership.  Which is why it’s so exciting that Ram keeps teasing us with the possibility of a mid-sized pickup, and Jeep Wrangler has been slow-cooking up the Scrambler. But when…

Is Roadside Assistance Worth It? | Mississauga & Toronto

550 × 304

If your car is less than 3 years old, you might wonder if adding a roadside assistance program to your list of annual automotive expenses is worth it. May we remind you that this is Ontario, where Mother Nature doesn’t care about your choice of air freshener, your favourite radio station or your warranty? Keys get locked in cars. Tires go flat in inclement weather conditions. And even the healthiest of batteries can go on strike during cold snaps. That’s where roadside assistance comes in. The short answer to the question, “Is roadside assistance worth it?” Yes.

Hey, What’s Your Car’s Name? | Mississauga & Brampton

550 × 232

My grandpa called his cars—all of them—Bessie, while my dad called each-and-every one of his junkers Betsy. Turns out, those are two of the most popular names to give your car if you live in North America. I have no idea what my mother called her forest green Buick, or if she did call her/him/it anything.  Horror maestro Stephen King knew what he was doing when he made one of his villains a 1958 Plymouth Fury named Christine. Have you ever looked at an abandoned classic car cruising around Mississauga, Oakville or Brampton in quite the…

What Does Lady Driven Even Mean in 2018? | Toronto

550 × 463

If you’ve perused used car ads in Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville or Toronto, you’ve probably encountered the phrase “lady driven” and wondered what it meant. A few decades ago, when women were less likely to drive their own vehicles, it was meant to imply that the car had been driven ever so gently. Maybe even with lace gloves on, at a very genteel rate of speed? Kidding aside, the mileage was assumed to be lower, the wear and tear on the car less pronounced. You know, she drove it to her Tuesday bridge game or maybe to the grocery…
