Auto Advice For Calgary Consumers

How Can Calgary Drivers Know If They Have Transmission Problems?

(Posted on Mar 31, 2021 at 01:02PM by Josh Lew)
2021 dodge charger for sale in calgary abTransmission problems are among the most expensive and stressful vehicle issues. They can also be dangerous since a failure can cause unexpected stopping or loss of control on the road. 

If you want to avoid these situations, here are three common symptoms to look for:


If you notice a red fluid with a sweet smell under your vehicle, you most likely have a transmission leak. You will need to take your auto to a Calgary service centre for an inspection.

Noises or Shaking

Noises are also a common indicator of transmission problems. If you hear or feel shaking or grinding, or if the gears are completely unresponsive when you try to change them, you should likewise seek the help of a professional.

A Burning Smell

A burning smell during driving, especially if you have a low engine temperature, often indicates ineffective transmission fluid and the need for a system flush.

2021 chrysler 300 for sale in calgary ab4x4 vehicles are a necessity for many motorists in Calgary. Whether traveling during winter or off the pavement, AWD can provide the right amount of grip and traction. When conditions are good, however, front or rear-wheel drive is sufficient. 

Some AWD cars and trucks have a transfer case that disconnects the front or rear axle when 4x4 mode is unnecessary. These autos either allow the driver to switch manually or change automatically if the vehicle's sensors detect stable surface conditions. 

For example, the AWD Chrysler 300 disconnects the front axle so that drivers can enjoy performance-oriented RWD if they choose. The Jeep Cherokee, on the other hand, disengages the rear wheels to offer FWD. 

In addition to giving drivers more options, these systems help increase fuel efficiency. For instance, the Chrysler 300's V6 gets a class-leading 7.8 L/100 km on the highway when it's in RWD mode.

(Posted on Mar 25, 2021 at 02:04PM by Josh Lew)
2021 chrysler pacifica for sale in calgary abElectric and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) need outlets to charge successfully. If you purchase one of these autos, such as the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica, what should you expect when it comes to replenishing the battery?

Some drivers will be able to take care of all their needs using a Level 1 charger. With this option, you can plug your PHEV into a standard 120-volt home electrical outlet. The drawback is that you have to connect the battery overnight. 

Level 2 chargers use a 240-volt outlet. These decrease the empty-to-full time to about two hours for hybrids. Mopar offers this type of product as an add-on for Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, and Jeep EVs and PHEVs. 

Public high-speed units can cut the process to 25 minutes or less. However, these are impractical for home use.

To find out about charging systems or to inquire about PHEVs available near you, contact our Calgary dealership today.
