Keep Your Luxury Vehicle Operating at Peak Performance with Santa Barbara Auto Group

2017-01-27T09:33:03+00:00January 27th, 2017|Acura, Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, luxury, Maintenance, Mercedes Benz, Porsche, Santa Barbara Auto Group, smart|

Bring your luxury vehicle to the expert team at Santa Barbara Auto Group to ensure it stays in top condition.

With the Winter weather conditions just around the corner, it’s important to make sure your luxury vehicle is running at peak performance. The team of expert technicians at Santa Barbara Auto Group wants to provide you the comfort of knowing you won’t get stuck out in the cold this winter, or that your tires can handle the slick layer of ice or snow you may encounter.

The best way to be sure that your vehicle is safe and operating at its full potential is to set up routine maintenance checks. Many vehicles experience unwanted and unexpected problems because they don’t receive service regularly. By keeping up with maintenance routine checks, most problems can either be avoided, or detected and fixed before they become more serious.

At Santa Barbara Auto Group, we offer brand-specific maintenance and services—as well as genuine brand-specific parts—for eight premium luxury brands including Acura, Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and smart.

Additional Important Precautions

  • Tire Inspections – Very few people are aware of the integral role tires play in your overall vehicle performance. It’s important to have a technician inspect them to make sure the tread is not worn or damaged to a point that’s dangerous. This is especially important with Winter coming soon. Be prepared for the weather.
  • Fluid Check – It’s important to check the different fluid levels in your vehicle to make sure it’s running efficiently. Especially before taking a long road trip, have someone check your engine and radiator for possible problems, as well as the oil level and coolant level.
  • Brake Inspection – I hope the importance of this is obvious. If you hear any grinding in your brakes, make sure to get them checked immediately. Even if they seem to be working well, it’s a good precautionary measure to get them checked every once in a while because when brakes start to go, they go quickly.
  • Additional Parts & Services – Taking preventative measures is one of the smartest things you can do to keep your vehicle working properly. Don’t hesitate to ask your service technician about any other services or repairs they might suggest. This may include inspecting the battery, windshield wipers, filters, and other fluids. It helps to have trained eyes taking a look at your vehicle from time to time because a service technician will notice signs of wear that might prevent a budding problem.

Driving a luxury vehicle should be just that—a luxury. In order to keep it that way, these routine maintenance and service checks are important. Santa Barbara Auto Group makes it easy on customers by providing the ability to set up appointments online or by phone. Santa Barbara Auto Group operates service departments for eight premium luxury brands and is dedicated to providing the best experience possible.

Mercedes-AMG GT S Features Exceptional Engineering Advantages

2015-07-16T10:41:41+00:00July 16th, 2015|Mercedes Benz|

Mercedes-Benz and AMG have teamed up to create a one-of-a-kind luxury sport performance vehicle that boasts a myriad of engineering innovations that give it a clear advantage on the track.

There is no lack of remarkable engineering achievements in the current luxury sports performance industry. All over the world, automotive engineers are creating some of the fastest and most efficient vehicles ever and these incredible vehicle capabilities continue to improve with each passing year. One of the most remarkable new vehicles to enter the market recently is the result of two industry leaders working together to create something new and special. Mercedes-Benz and AMG have worked together to bring the Mercedes-AMG to the world this year and have given the vehicle a slew of unique qualities that propel it forwards as a leader in its class.

The Mercedes-AMG GT is only the second car to be built by AMG and stays true to its racing heritage. The vehicle is built on an SLS platform modified for the new design. Once they had the base in place, AMG made no compromises as they engineered it for speed, agility, and exceptional handling.

Impressive Power from a Unique V8

The heart of the Mercedes-AMG GT S is the impressive V8 engine capable of 503hp and 479lb-ft of torque. With so much power pumping through its veins, the GT S barely breaks a sweat as it rockets from 0 to 60mph in just 3.7 seconds. On the track, the vehicle tops out at a stunning 193mph with strength to spare. Critics have commended the vehicle for its exceptional handling and impressive power.

Efficient Design

Another reason the Mercedes-AMG GT S is able to post such impressive stats is the remarkably efficient design. Again, AMG engineers made no compromises on quality with the overall design. The sports car features a curb weight of 3,695lbs balanced perfectly for optimal power and weight distribution. The 7-speed transmission is placed at the rear of the vehicle and features an electronic differential for flawless performance. An automatic rear spoiler engages at speeds over 75mph and optional carbon ceramic brakes provide controlled braking and handling on and off the track.

So there you have it. The Mercedes-AMG GT S is as stunning and impressive as we hoped it would be and is ready and waiting for the chance to push the limits of the road and track. Drivers can watch for the car to arrive in the coming months and can follow updates and information from Mercedes through Santa Barbara Auto Group. Base price for the AMG GT S will start around $150,000.
