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.”

 Dick’s Country Chrysler Jeep Dodge is replenishing its vehicle inventory as new 2010 model-year Chrysler, Jeep®, Dodge Car and Ram Truck vehicles continue to arrive. Some examples of the unique comfort and utility features that can be found on 2010 vehicles follow:

2008 Ford Focus Rocks !!

2008 Ford Focus

Redesigned for 2008.

By Kirk Bell, NewCarTestDrive.com

Introduction

Ford has reworked the Focus for 2008, giving it new styling inside and out but maintaining the same platform and basic size.

The new design shares a family look with Ford’s other cars, distinguished by a two-bar version of the company’s characteristic razor blade-like grille.

The new, 2008 Ford Focus comes in four-door sedan and two-door coupe body styles. (Wagon and hatchback body styles are not offered.)

The big news for 2008 is the introduction of Ford’s new Sync entertainment and communications system. Developed with Microsoft, Sync provides a hands-free link to cell phones and MP3 players through a series of voice commands. It recognizes your cell phone’s address book. It can even read text messages to occupants through the stereo system. It’s an amazing system and Ford appears to be ahead of everyone else in this area.

The redesigned interior is aesthetically pleasing. It looks better than that of the outgoing model, with nicer graining on the plastics that continue to dominate the cockpit. The ambience is not luxurious but appropriate for the price. While interior noise is also down from the last model, there is still plenty of road and engine noise, which are typical of economy cars.

As in the past, the Focus handles well. We experienced lots of road feel with little body lean in corners while driving the top-line SES with its a sportier suspension. That road feel can make the ride a bit harder than some might prefer, but it isn’t harsh and we appreciated the handling response.

With 140 horsepower, the Focus has decent power for most needs, but passing on a busy two-lane road will require a lot of space. Fuel economy is quite good, with up to 24 mpg in the city and 35 on the highway.

We Support Boys and Girls Clubs of Portland

We Support Boys and Girls Clubs of Portland

Learn more about the Inukai Family Boys & Girls Club

The Mission:

“To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.”

Club History

Since 1946, Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland has been providing thousands of young people throughout the Portland metro area with affordable, high-quality after-school and summer programs designed to help them develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders. The Clubs offer kids what they want the most: safe, clean, fun places to go when they’re not in school; caring adults who respect and guide them; and challenging programs that teach them life skills and keep them engaged in productive activities.

The Inukai Boys and Girls Club

In October 2006, dozens of community leaders and investors joined with more than 300 Boys & Girls Club youth to witness the ground-breaking event of the Inukai Family Boys & Girls Club. Preceding the ground-breaking, Club Kids and guests were honored with a visit by Former Secretary of State, General Colin Powell, who took time to share a personal message for the Kids before participating in the ceremony.

The ground-breaking marked an important event in the Hillsboro Club’s history. With the investment of many community leaders and donors, the Hillsboro Boys & Girls Club was able to undertake a capital expansion project, adding an additional 12,000 square feet to the existing 8,100 square foot facility.

The new Club has been renamed the Inukai Family Boys & Girls Club after the family of Richard Inukai, Board Chair of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metropolitan Area and major contributor to the Clubs operations and expansion effort. Mr. Inukai is also owner of Dick’s MacKenzie Ford and Dick’s Country Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Hillsboro.
