How to Keep Your Vehicle Running at Peak Performance through Santa Barbara Auto Group

2017-04-04T10:19:27+00:00April 4th, 2017|luxury, Maintenance, parts, Santa Barbara Auto Group, service|

Santa Barbara Auto Group offers exceptional service and convenient scheduling to make maintaining your vehicle as easy as possible.

Let’s face it, the biggest reason we allow ourselves to fall behind on vehicle maintenance is a lack of time and accessibility. It’s very easy to forget to keep up with routine maintenance checks when life gets busy, and without a convenient way to schedule service it hardly seems worth the hassle. However, routine maintenance is extremely important in terms of keeping your luxury vehicle running at peak performance for as long as possible. It is also the best way to prevent small problems from snowballing into larger, more expensive ones. Catching automotive issues before they develop into more serious problems could potentially mean saving you a lot of money. This is why it is important have your luxury vehicle serviced regularly.

Our team of brand-certified expert technicians at Santa Barbara Auto Group offer brand-specific maintenance that customers can feel confident about. Our services with convenient online scheduling are specific to, but not limited to, eight premium luxury brands, including Acura, Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and smart.

In addition to regularly scheduled maintenance services, there are other ways Santa Barbara Auto Group can help you care for your vehicle, including:

  • Tire Inspections – Tires play an integral role in the overall performance in the vehicle. Have them checked for tire pressure, and wear and tear every so often to prevent dangerous situations, such as popping your tire.
  • Fluid Checks – Check your oil often and especially before long trips. There are several other fluids to check as well, such as coolant or brake fluid.
  • Brake Inspections – Making sure your brakes are working properly is very important. Have a technician inspect them for wear, and to check brake fluid levels.
  • Consult your Technician – It’s always good to ask your technician if there are any additional services or repairs they might suggest. This could include inspecting the battery, windshield wipers, filters, or other fluids. As an expert, your technician will likely be able to spot and prevent future problems if given the chance.

Driving a luxury vehicle is most enjoyable when that vehicle is running at peak performance. What is the point of spending the money if you are going to treat it like an old rust-bucket? Visit Santa Barbara Auto Group’s website to conveniently schedule your routine maintenance check online, and relieve any concerns about your vehicle.

2017 Audi A4 Closes the Gap Between Sports Car and Sedan

2017-03-31T13:34:05+00:00March 31st, 2017|Audi, luxury, New Vehicles|

The 2017 Audi A4 is the perfect car for drivers who want the commanding power of a sports car, without sacrificing the comfort and luxury of a premium sedan.

The Audi A4 has sort of created this overlapping category of vehicle that’s being referred to as a “sport sedan.” This is because the A4 combines sporty and luxurious into one efficiently neat package. The jump from the 2016 A4 model to the new 2017 A4 model haven’t done much to change in exterior appearance. Outside of modest revisions to the overall dimensions, a slightly more aggressive grille and front end, and more modern head and taillights (with optional LEDs) the A4 stuck to its already attractive previous design. However, by cutting weight and implementing the newest technology, Audi has effectively developed a more efficient and unique balance to create the ultimate “sport sedan.”

Swift, Silent, and Sporty

By substituting many of the formerly steel parts with light-weight aluminum, Audi managed to trim the weight of the previous A4 model by about 100 pounds. The result is a more efficient ride with a steadier grip for the drive.

Though the 2017 Audi A4 is one of the most silent rides on the market, measuring at just 63 decibels at a steady 70 mph, the sedan still maintains its strength and athleticism under the hood. The turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with enhancements to the head increase the output to 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, up from the previous model’s 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.

To supplement this powerful engine is a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Audi did extensive work to imitate a torque-converter automatic, and it shows. The Audi A4 shifts smoothly and responsively from a stop, slow roll, or quick acceleration. When all added up, the 2017 Audi A4 boasts an impressive 31 mpg in the highway and 24 mpg in the city for an average 27 mpg combined.

Driving an Audi is a satisfying experience, but it comes with responsibility. When purchasing a luxury vehicle like the Audi A4, it’s important to take proper care of it. At Audi Santa Barbara, our team of brand-trained technicians are happy to help you keep your vehicle working at peak performance for as long as possible. You can even schedule maintenance and service appointments on our website. So contact Audi Santa Barbara to learn more about the 2017 Audi A4 and the rest of our extensive Audi selection.

How to Choose the Right Premium Vehicle Warranty When Purchasing a New Car

2017-02-20T17:15:16+00:00February 20th, 2017|luxury, New Vehicles, premium, Warranties|

With our class-leading comprehensive warranty programs offered directly from premium automotive brands, customers at Santa Barbara Auto Group can feel at ease on the road.

The process of purchasing a vehicle is a complex one with many different factors to consider. For instance, what kind of performance are you looking for? What style suits your personality? What functional aspects do you need to supplement your lifestyle? How much do you value technology and safety systems? Amongst these more exciting aspects to consider, there is one factor that is often over-looked, but really plays a significant role as the owner of a luxury vehicle – that is your vehicle warranty.

Warranties Directly from the Manufacturer

At Santa Barbara Auto Group, we are proud to be authorized dealers of eight different premium luxury brands including: Acura, Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and smart. One of the benefits of being an authorized dealership for these brands is that we are given exclusive access to the best comprehensive warranty programs that come directly from the manufacturer. When searching for a new luxury vehicle, it is very important to understand the warranty program that will apply to your purchase. Many dealerships offer third-party warranties that aren’t backed by the automaker and tend to be bad deals when examined closely. Customers at Santa Barbara Auto Group have the advantage of gaining access to class-leading warranties directly from the brand manufacturers.

Questions to Consider when Choosing your Warranty Program

  • Do you plan on keeping the car for a long time?

If so, then considering an extended warranty program is a good idea, but if you tend to get tired of your vehicle after 2-3 years, then an extended warranty is not probably necessary.

  • Who stands behind the warranty?

Make sure the warranty is backed by the automaker and not a third-party. Warranties backed by third parties are usually only recognized by the dealership you purchased through, while warranties backed by the automaker are recognized by every authorized dealer around the country.

  • Have you shopped for the best price?

If you wait until your sitting down to purchase a vehicle before considering a warranty, it’s unlikely you will get the chance to thoroughly compare prices. Do some research before the purchasing process.

  • Do you know exactly what is covered?

This is an obviously important question when purchasing a warranty. Consider your past repairs and what recurring problems you’ve experienced to help guide you in your decision.

  • Will it give you peace of mind?

If you are the type of person that will benefit from the safety net of purchasing a comprehensive warranty, then it is a good idea. However, if you feel confident that you’ve purchased a reliable vehicle, then it might be okay to purchase a warranty with less coverage.

At Santa Barbara Auto Group, our friendly and knowledgeable sales representatives are ready to help you through every aspect of the purchasing process. So visit our dealership and be reassured that you’re making all the right choices when buying your next vehicle.

How to Save Time and Money when Purchasing/Leasing a Luxury Vehicle

2017-02-10T10:03:00+00:00February 10th, 2017|Acura, Audi, BMW, Certified Pre-Owned, Jaguar, Land Rover, luxury, Mercedes Benz, New Vehicles, Porsche, premium, Santa Barbara Auto Group, smart|

Santa Barbara Auto Group offers tips to help you save money on your next purchase or lease of a new or pre-owned luxury vehicle.

Purchasing or leasing a new car is an important decision with many factors to consider. There is an overabundance of options when it comes to brand, model, and package options that the experience can become overwhelming. In addition to choosing the vehicle, customers must choose the best financial plan to commit to which presents a whole other flood of options. So whether it is a new purchase or just time to trade in for a newer model, Santa Barbara Auto Group wants to offer you some tips on how to make the experience as easy as possible.

Research your Top Picks Beforehand

Before heading out to the dealership, it can be helpful to research the brands and models you might be interested in. Think about your daily driving habits and consider all of the factors that might be influential, such as: power, efficiency, safety, performance, safety, and functionality. Do you have a brand preference? Have you had a model that you loved and want to learn more about its updated version? It’s helpful to look over consumer choice lists in automotive journals like Motor Trend or Car and Driver, or safety reviews from institutions like the IIHS or NHTSA.

New or Used?

The next question to consider is whether you want to buy a new or pre-owned vehicle. If the model you’ve been looking into is out of your price range, it’s possible that it’s available at a more reasonable price pre-owned. All certified pre-owned vehicles undergo thorough testing to ensure they meet brand standards, so there is no reason to worry you’re buying an unreliable vehicle.

Consider Pricing and Incentives

Pricing and incentives is something you may want to consider prior to deciding whether you’re buying new or pre-owned. At Santa Barbara Auto Group, we often provide sale, lease, and financing specials that may be significant enough to sway your decision. All of the information is available on our website so customers can compare prices online. Be sure to ask our sales representatives about available cash incentives and seasonal specials.

Take a Test Drive!

It would be naïve to commit to a vehicle that you’ve never driven. Once you’ve found the right car, ask to take it for a test drive. This will ensure you that the vehicle meets the power, control, and comfort requirements you need. It’s also a great time to ask questions about the vehicle’s performance, safety, and technology features.

At Santa Barbara Auto Group, we are dedicated to providing you an enjoyable purchasing experience. Our friendly and knowledgeable sales staff will be happy to assist you through the process of finding and purchasing the luxury vehicle that best suits your lifestyle and preferences.
