New 2010 Models Arrive with Cool Features to Warm up the Automotive Market

Whether you want to keep your soft drinks cold or your hands warm, new 2010 model-year vehicles are arriving to Dick’s Country Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Hillsboro with a wide variety of features to make life on the road a little more comfortable.

 “Heated steering wheels and built-in beverage coolers are just a couple of the unique features available on 2010 model-year cars and trucks,” said Mr. Inukai. “While customers aren’t going to choose a certain vehicle just because it has lighted cup holders, they do appreciate the thoughtfulness of the small details – especially it if it eliminates coffee spills during late night driving.

 “Performance, fuel economy, vehicle size and price are still important drivers of buyer decisions,” Mr. Inukai said, “But, often it’s the ‘creature features’ that new vehicle owners like to show off to their friends and neighbors.”
