Now that it’s spring and I hope the last snowfall is behind us, how do I bring back the luster to my car?

Gary Jaffarian will give you tips for making your vehicle shine and sparkle while you bring it back to life!

Washing close-upNow that it is officially spring, I’m hoping we can put those snow shovels away for a long time! There is still slush, salt and sand on the roads, which kicks back up onto your vehicle and can erode the exterior finish. The best defense, especially in winter and until the roads are clear, is to wash your vehicle weekly. Even in summer, if you have a garage, keep your vehicle parked in the garage, or in a shady spot when you’re at work, to keep the bright sunlight off the surface. Wash your vehicle when it is not hot to the touch. Washing and waxing by hand is preferable, but for many of us finding the time can be a challenge!

Here are some tips for professional results if you are a do-it-yourselfer:cleaning wheels
• Have two buckets available one with the soapy water and another with plain water. Apply warm, sudsy water with a sponge or soft mitt and do not wash your vehicle in the bright sunlight.
• Do not use dishwashing liquid, shampoo or laundry detergent on your vehicle, buy a washing solution meant for vehicles. If you do use a household cleaner, use a mild soap.
• Park your vehicle in the shade whenever possible, however, in the shade under a tree can mean sap, branches or other substances may end up on your vehicle. Do not park under a tree.
• If you do get sap or tree drippings on your vehicle, WD-40 is a great solution to remove it.
• After washing one side or section, rinse the vehicle off from top to bottom with a hose on a light setting. Higher settings or pressure washing can damage the vehicle or bring out the scratches. Do not soap up the entire vehicle before rinsing, so the soap is not on any part of your vehicle for too long.
• Keep the entire car wet. It will ensure that the droplets don’t dry on the paint, leaving water-spots.
• The dirtiest and grimiest part of a car is its lower body, fender and wheels. Scrub and clean them last using a different sponge with a non-abrasive scrubber.wire brush cleaning
• To clean the openings of the wheels, use a long, thin wheel brush. To clean the tires, make use of steel-wool-soap pads, one for each tire.
• To dry the car, use a chamois cloth or towel and set it flat on the surface. Drag it along the surface, starting from the roofs and moving down to the tires, making sure to pick up every water drop.waxing
• For windows, you can just wash with plain water and wipe them immediately, or use a glass cleaner. (Do not use a glass cleaner with ammonia on the dash board or seats.)
• If you’re really ambitious, apply one to two coats of a paste or liquid wax coating to protect and shine.

For professional results, bring it to Jaffarian Volvo Toyota’s Auto Spa for an affordable professional shine and/or interior detailing. If you have rust spots, dings or dents, take it to the award winning Jaffarian Body Shop, just down the street from our showroom at 600 River Street in Haverhill at exit 49 off Route 495. If you drop your vehicle off for cleaning, we’ll give you a ride home, to work or local shopping; or of course you’re welcome to wait in our comfortable waiting rooms with Wi-Fi, TV, and other amenities. Sometimes, it’s just not worth the effort to buy the products and do it yourself.

Enjoy the warmer weather that is just around the corner (hopefully!). Happy Spring!

How do I check my oil?

Gary Jaffarian will explain how to check your oil in a few simple steps and why changing your oil is so important.

dipstick1Engine oil is vital to your vehicle’s well-being and essential to the operation of your vehicle. Oil reduces friction between moving parts and helps remove heat from the engine. At Jaffarian Volvo Toyota, we drain and refill your vehicle with factory-recommended oil, replace the oil filter and reset the maintenance indicator light. Most people prefer to have it done professionally by a factory-trained maintenance technician as we have at Jaffarian.

Let’s discuss what happens if you don’t change your oil on regular intervals, as recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer. You always want to check the manual or check on line to see what is recommended. If you don’t change the oil, the old oil will turn to a solid sludge, instead of a thick liquid oil. When it is not changed as often as recommended, the dirty oil becomes abrasive and causes needless engine wear and can result in catastrophic engine failure.

Older model vehicles often use conventional oil, which is lower cost, but needs to be changed every 3-5,000 miles. Newer model vehicles most often use synthetic oil which lasts for 8-10,000 miles. Synthetic oil better protects your engine and lasts longer, though costs more than conventional oil—but well worth it. It is easy to check your oil, but not so easy to replace it.

How to check your oil:check oil level
• Shut the engine off.
• Release the trunk hood lever in the vehicle and open the hood latch.
• Properly raise the bar to hold the hood up.
• Find the oil dipstick which generally has a yellow or orange handle on the top.
• Have a rag or paper towel handy.
• Remove the dip stick, clean it off and reinsert it, then pull it out again. Look for the level markers to be certain it is between high and low.
• If it closer to the low marker, you generally need to add 1-3 quarts of oil. Check the owner’s manual to see what type of oil is required.
• Watch our video on the Jaffarian You Tube Channel.

If you check your oil and it needs oil, schedule an appointment online or call us and we will change your oil and check all your fluids. Most people would not go through the trouble and risk a mishap to change their own oil, when for a small amount of money, you can come to Jaffarian Volvo Toyota Service Department and relax in our waiting room watching TV, using you laptop or tablet while sipping a hot or cold beverage. There is even a playroom for young children. We will get you in and out within the hour and will use the specific oil recommended for your vehicle. You can schedule your appointment on line 24/7 or call (888) 718-4749 for an appointment Monday through Saturday.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Please remember not to drink and drive. Happy StPatricks

Stay safe on the roads, and remember, spring is officially arriving next week!

How can we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day as a family and avoid the drinking crowd?

Happy StPatricksGary Jaffarian will let you know about parades and other fun events to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the family—and a warning for the drinking crowd.

The area’s roots are deeply connected to the Irish immigrants coming to Boston. And while many of us are not from Irish descent, , the Greater Boston Area embraces the belief that “Everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick Day!” According to Wikipedia, people of Irish descent form the largest single ethnic group in the City of Boston, making up 15.8% of the population.

One of the oldest and largest St. Patrick’s Day Parades takes place in South Boston (“Southie”) every year. It can be a great family day watching the Southie parade or attending the parade in  Lawrence. These parades are colorful, happy events and celebrate not only the Irish, but have a deep connection to our heroes—military, veterans, and first responders—police, fire and EMTs, who all take part in the parades. Most people dress in green street clothes or more flamboyant green costumes. Be sure to check out the more than 250 photos on the Southie St. Patrick’s Day Parade web site.

Here is the information for those who want to attend either one—or both parades—this coming weekend and next weekend.

Lawrence ParadeCity of LawrenceSt. Patrick’s Day Parade is held on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at 1 p.m.
The parade starts on Essex St. at Amesbury Street. The Parade goes over the Casey Bridge, down Parker St., left on Salem St. across Loring St. down Salem St. to Shawsheen Rd, back to Market Street ending at Market and Loring Streets. The parade ends at Relief’s’ In, (and no, it’s not an “inn”) at One Market Street, Lawrence. The significance of the celebration at the end of the parade at the Relief’s In is that in 1977, a group of Lawrence firefighters along with a few firefighters from Methuen, North Andover, Haverhill, Lowell, Nashua and Salem N.H. had a vision. They wanted a place to call their own to hang out, tell “war stories,” have Union meetings, retirement parties and family parties. The firefighters have always played a significant role in the St. Patrick’s Day parade.

The parade starts at the Broadway MBTA Stop in South Boston on West Broadway (moves easterly). Click here for a map of the parade route. Your best bet for viewing the parade is to stake out a spot anywhere along Broadway. Marchers continue to Telegraph Street to Dorchester Street and end at Andrew Square in So. Boston.

Other St. Patrick’s Day events in Boston include:

Dropkick Murphys:  It’s a St. Patrick’s weeklong tradition! Boston’s own Dropkick Murphys, famous for their song “Shipping Up to Boston,” do a string of hometown shows at the House of Blues.

Guided Walks of the Irish Heritage Trail:  Every March the Boston Irish Tourism Association provides guided walks of the Irish Heritage Trail; over 200 years of Irish history in Boston from Commodore John Barry to President John F. Kennedy. For more information click here.

A St. Patrick’s Day Celtic Sojourn with Brian O’Donovan: For the past decade, A St. Patrick’s Day Celtic Sojourn concerts with Brian O’Donovan have introduced a wide range of new and familiar musicians to audiences eager to celebrate the holiday in true Irish style.

JFK Library celebrates with the Greene-O’Leary School of Irish Dancers from the Metrowest area. Enjoy a celebration of St. Patrick’s Day as these dancers demonstrate their athleticism, skill, and poise while presenting traditional and contemporary styles of Irish dance.

St. Patrick’s Day is officially on Friday March 17. The day may be spent enjoying a traditional meal of corned beef and cabbage and it is likely the evening will be active across the Merrimack Valley and in the City of Boston. Whether you enjoy a Guinness or perhaps a green beer, there will be many heading out after work to raise a glass. For those of drinking age who want to celebrate, please remember to not don’t drink and drive. Find a designated driver, walk to your local bar or restaurant, call a cab or Uber, take public transportation, stay over a friend’s or get a hotel room—just stay off the road.  You have your life, your passenger’s life and those in the other vehicles on the road in your hands. Celebrate responsibly.

StPatricksDrinkinUnfortunately,  St. Patrick’s Day has ended in tragedy due to drunk drivers getting behind the wheel. Over St. Patrick’s Day from 2011 to 2015, a total of 252 lives were lost in drunk-driving crashes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. To help solve the problem of drinking and driving, they started a program called SaferRide and it has mobile apps available. NHTSA’s SaferRide app will help keep drunk drivers off the roads by allowing users to call a taxi or a friend and by identifying their location so they can be picked up.

Enjoy the next two weekends celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, the beginning of spring and don’t forget to set the clocks ahead one hour this Saturday night when you go to bed. We’ll lose an hour of sleep, but warmer weather is that much closer!   Happy St. Patrick’s Day and be safe.

How do I replace my windshield wipers and fill the windshield fluid?

Gary Jaffarian will give you a quick lesson on how to replace your windshield wipers and fill your windshield washer fluid and where to go for help.
help-on-windshieldNot having good visibility when driving is  an emergency situation. You want to avoid such situations whenever possible.  With regularly scheduled maintenance (highly recommended), you can have your wiper blades inspected to know in advance if they need to be replaced.
To replace windshield wipers, consult your owner’s manual to confirm the correct wiper blades for your vehicle. You can buy replacement wiper blades at an auto parts store, large retail department store, or Jaffarian Parts Department.
How to change windshield wiper blades:change-blade-demo
• To remove the old wiper, lift the wiper arm away from the windshield and depress the small tab on the underside of the wiper where it meets the wiper arm. When the tab is depressed, slide the wiper blade off the arm by pulling downward.
• To attach the new wiper blade, pull the wiper blade tight onto the arm. You will hear a clicking sound when it locks into place. Simply lower the arm slowly back onto the windshield.
• Test the wipers after installation to be sure they are functioning properly.
How to add windshield washer fluid:
• Open the hood. if you have a new vehicle or infrequently open the hood, be sure you know how to open it from the inside lever as well as the outside lever. Sounds basic, but in the dark you will be glad you are confident knowing how to open the hood.washer-fluid-reservoir
• Find the windshield wiper fluid tank. It’s usually in the front corner of the vehicle and the tank is usually an opaque plastic reservoir with a cap that’s at least an inch and a half wide. The cap usually has a symbol of a windshield, a windshield and wipers, or a spray of water. Remove the cap.
• Fill the tank with replacement windshield wiper fluid until it is near the top. Replace the cap tightly.
• I recommend you keep additional windshield washer in your vehicle this time of year.
removing blade pin.jpgIf you keep up with your oil changes, or other routine maintenance, the service technician will check all fluids. At Jaffarian Volvo Toyota, we’re happy to take care of these things for you. Book an appointment online or stop by our Jaffarian Service Department Monday through Saturday if you’d like to learn how to perform any of these functions, or even better, have us do them for you.
Stay safe on the roads and we look forward to helping you or answering any HOW DO I questions you may have.

Is President’s Day Weekend the best time to buy a vehicle?

Gary Jaffarian answers this commonly asked question given the holiday weekend has become synonymous with vehicle sales!

washington-bday-saleIf you are thinking about a new vehicle, there are many reasons to do so on the Presidents’ Day Holiday Weekend. A bit of trivia, this tradition started in Boston a long time ago with a dealership holding an open house, and the idea took off!

February in New England can be a stormy month. Many folks may think it best to wait until the snow melts to buy or lease a new vehicle. As I consistently say, be an informed consumer. Do your homework and if you are even thinking about a potential purchase or lease, it is worth reviewing the offers available in February as they tend to be very strong offers.

With the unbelievable Super Bowl win behind us and March Madness ahead of us, now is a great time to do your homework – online and in person. Most vehicle manufacturer’s offer specials and there are deals on 2016 models. Check out the specials at Jaffarian Toyota, including the Toyota rebate for members of the military.

America celebrates Presidents’ Day with sales. While Sweden does not have a President, Volvo is not to be left out so they are participating in their own unique way with a King of king-of-sweden-carSweden Day. To celebrate, they are offering $0 down and $0 first month’s payment when you lease a new 2017 Volvo (see website for details). This is a fabulous offer and is worth evaluating if you had been planning to wait until the Spring! With a reputation for innovation and safety, Volvos include advanced features like the Blind Spot Information System, Rear Park Assist Camera, Panoramic Moonroof and more in many models as standard features! Keep this in mind as you do your homework to compare apples to apples of what comes standard vs. additional costs. President’s Day offers the consumer many great offers so I encourage you to check them out and if you are thinking about a new vehicle, now is a good time to review the offers. It is a great time to buy a Volvo or a Toyota!

Don’t like crowds? Have plans for the long weekend? That is ok. You don’t have to wait. I know at Jaffarian Volvo and Toyota, the offers are effective now – come in this weekend and beat the crowds and take advantage of the full selection of colors and features that you want! And don’t forget, don’t just research the make and model and features included, research the dealerships. Maybe you just care about getting the color and amenities that are important to you, but don’t you want to do business with a dealer that is going to take care of you and be there for you in case you have questions or concerns?

When you’re doing your research, check the vehicle’s options, safety features, MSRP and the dealerships’ ratings from reliable sources such as DealerRater.com (click here to see how we rate). DealerRater is a reputable source for dealership reviews. There are multiple other sites that you can also go to and I am sure you too have your favorites. Some are better for other industries and be forewarned that some consumer rating sites don’t show all reviews or have a tendency to emphasize negative reviews. Buyer beware!

What is the best time to buy or lease? That really comes down to what is best for you. President’s Day vehicle sales are strong offers and you may be able to find a great deal on apres-day-graphic2 2016 although they are going fast. To summarize, if you are even considering a new vehicle in the year, I would suggest you make an informed decision by being aware of what the incentives are to help you make an informed decision about timing. As always, we at Jaffarian Volvo Toyota, are here to help answer any questions and assist in helping you make the best decision for you.

Stay safe on the roads given the weather forecast and remember we are here for you 7 days a week!
