 Pre-owned GMC Sierra - Internet Auto Rent and Sales - Boise, ID

 

New or used, the GMC Sierra is one of the top full-size pickup trucks on the market. It's loved for its powerful and fuel-efficient engines, well-built and comfortable interior, and quiet on-road demeanor. But, just like any vehicle, problems can occur. One of the most dramatic malfunctions a vehicle can experience is radiator problems. With the heat and pressure that's contained within the cooling system, radiator problems can lead to a cloud of steam and a disabled vehicle. But while the radiator is often to blame, there are many other reasons your vehicle's cooling system is not working correctly. Here are some of the most common problems found in the cooling system.

 

Failed Thermostat

When a vehicle overheats, the most common culprit is a failed thermostat. While the thermostat is not actually a part of the radiator, it does play a very important role in its health by controlling how much coolant can flow in and out. This helps keep the engine at an optimal operating temperature. When a thermostat fails, the result is an overheating car.

 

Radiator Hose Leak

If your cooling system has sprung a leak, it's not usually the radiator that's to blame; it's usually the radiator hoses. Hoses connect the radiator to the engine, allowing coolant to flow between the two. Unfortunately, radiator hoses are prone to failure over time and need to be replaced periodically – whether they are working or not.

 

Radiator Leak

While radiator hoses are typically responsible for leaks, the radiator can also be to blame. Radiator leaks are much harder to locate and repair than leaks in radiator hoses, so you may have your work cut out for you. To tell if a leak is coming from the radiator, look for clues such as bubbles or steam. Also note that while radiators can sometimes be patched, it can be pretty tricky, leaving you with the sole option of buying a new one.

 

Water Pump Failure

A key component of an automotive cooling system is the water pump. Its job is to move coolant throughout the engine in order to regulate the temperature. Water is pumped through the radiator, past the pump, into the engine and then forced back into the radiator. If your vehicle suffers from a failed water pump, water is no longer able to circulate properly, which leads to overheating.

 

Trapped Air in the Cooling System

If your vehicle has been running warmer than usual, it could be due to air in the cooling system. If air becomes trapped in the cooling system, the flow of coolant becomes restricted, and in turn, the cooling system becomes less efficient and overheating occurs.

 

Obstruction in the Cooling System

If your cooling system suffers from an obstruction, it will ultimately overheat. When an obstruction occurs, it becomes difficult for coolant to flow as efficiently as it should. Obstructions can also restrict the flow of air through the radiator, which make the transfer of heat to air impossible. This problem can be caused by a number of things such as bent fins or body damage from an accident.

 Used Chrysler

If given the choice between getting a new car or one that is used, most would quickly opt for new. Sure, there are several perks to owning a brand-new car (new-car smell, no previous owners, etc.), but used cars are actually a much more worthy investment.

First, imagine a used car. What does it look like? If you're like most, the initial picture of a used car that comes to mind is not a very good one. It is probably old, full of dings, and very well worn inside and out. Sure, this vision may be accurate every now and then (there are definitely some lemons out there!), used care are typically in very good condition.

 

Take the Chrysler 200, for example. Standing as a midsize sedan, consumers love the Chrysler 200 for its strong engine, composed ride and handling, high-quality materials, and much much more. And it doesn't matter which model year you choose, because the Chrysler 200 has been showing off sought-after qualities for years.

 

If you are in the market for a car, here are the top reasons to opt for used.

 

Better Price

New cars show off bright and shiny paint, all of the latest features, and an overall fresh feeling inside and out. But, all of these things come at a cost – and it's a very high cost! The price gap between new and used cars is a huge $20,000! That's a hefty chunk of change for a fresh coat of paint. Used cares are just as visually appealing as new ones – so much so that you may not even be able to tell it's used. Just think of it this way: with savings as high as $20,000, you could buy two used cars for the price of one.

 

Better Depreciation Value

A major pro for used cars is better depreciation value. New cars lose a huge portion of their value immediately – as in the second they roll of the dealership lot. In fact, in just the first year of a new car's life, up to 40% of its value is lost.

Used cars also don't cause as much mental depreciation as new cars. Any dings a used car has got them well before you buy it, so there's no need to worry about any “first” dings or chips because the previous owner already took care of those for you.

 

Choices

New cars are only new for one to two years. This means a very limited list of vehicles to choose from. Used cars, on the other hand, offer a much wider, almost never-ending list of options. Do you have your eye set on a 2002 Chrysler 200? What about a 1979 Mustang? Buying used means an unlimited list of choices, which means you can pretty much drive what you have your heart set on.

 

Technology

Shopping for and buying used cars today is much different than it was in years past. This is in large thanks to technology. Before, hen you decided to shop for a used car, you had to trust solely in the seller and what they told you about the car for sale. Today, however, consumers have knowledge right at their fingertips with the internet's many websites. One, for example, is CarFax. This well-known and well-loved website allows you to find out historical information about a specific vehicle – when/if it has been in an accident, parts that have been replaced, how many owners it has had, etc. This means sellers can't just tell you what you want to hear in order to make a sale. Instead, you are able to make a well-informed decision on whether or not you want to invest in a vehicle.

While lots of choices means you are bound to find the exact truck of your dreams, it also means a potentially long and tiring shopping process. Let us help you narrow down your list of options with a look at one pickup that stands at the top of any truck lovers must-have list – the Chevy Silverado.

 

The 2013 Chevy Silverado is one of the most sought-after trucks there is on the used automotive market. It was also one of the most sought-after trucks when it was brand new in 2013.

Here's a closer look at the top reasons the 2015 Chevy Silverado makes the ultimate used truck purchase.

 

Unbeatable Towing Power

Do you want a truck with lots of towing power? If so, the  Chevy Silverado can't be beat thanks to the Silverados available engines. Those equipped with the standard V6 engine can easily haul over 7,600 pounds.

Many Configurations

What sets Chevrolet trucks like the 2013 Silverado apart from the competition is its many configurations in terms of body style and bed length. The Silverado can be found in three different body styles: standard cab, double cab and crew cab. All provide lots of room, but for the most, double cab Silverado offer more, and even add a great deal more storage space.

Depending on body style, the Silverado features one of three bed lengths: 5.7-foot short bed, 6.5-foot standard bed, or 8.2-foot long bed. All sizes provide excellent measurements for cargo and can carry even the toughest, heaviest of cargo loads.

 

Off-Road Ready

Along with its power and strength, the 2015 Chevy Silverado is also off-road ready to provide you with some fun adventure. The Silverado Z71 is the ultimate trim level for those seeking to hit off-road trails due to its specially designed performance-enhancing features. Some include specialized shock absorbers, hill descent control, and underbody shielding.

 

Top Safety Ratings

Safety is a vital part of whether a vehicle is worth investing in. With the 2013 Chevy Silverado, safety is a top priority. In crash testing, the Silverado earned top ratings in all categories, including front- and side-impact collision protection and overall collision protection. What you should also know is that the Silverado is equipped with plenty of features that boost safety.

 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 - Internet Auto Rent and Sales - Boise, ID

 

Are you in the market for a used truck? There are many possibilities out there, from different brands and trim levels, to a range of features and equipment. But if you want a truck that's unmatched in strength and hauling capabilities, there's only one choice: the Dodge Ram 3500. Here are the top reasons to invest in this truck.

 

Heavy-duty Platform

The typical pickup truck has nothing on the Dodge Ram 3500 in terms of overall strength and durability. Whether you want a truck for muddy, hazardous construction sites or adventure-filled off-road trails, the 3500 excels in a variety of rugged environments. This is in thanks to its heavy-duty platform that is built to outlast the ordinary pickup truck. Also worth noting is the 3500's tow-haul mode that optimizes transmission performance when carrying a heavy load, as well as its inclusion of heavy-duty tow hooks and a trailer harness connector.

 

Luxury Ride and Features

As already mentioned, the 2008 Ram 3500 is a leader in heavy-duty power and strength. But as ferocious as this truck is, it is also full of luxury in its ride quality and interior features. The 3500 may sport large dimensions, but it provides passengers with a well-cushioned ride that passengers find enjoyable. It also features a very effective steering system that makes it easy to maneuver despite its large size.

The 3500 shows off a long list of luxury features, too, that boost its appeal even further. Found in upper trim levels of the 3500, you'll find content, such as:

  • 8.4” touchscreen display
  • Uconnect infotainment system
  • Rearview camera
  • 10-speaker audio system
  • Ventilated front seats
  • RamBox cargo management system

 

Diesel Power

Intrigued by the many perks of a diesel engine? Then the Dodge Ram 3500 will serve you well. Under the hood of the 3500 is a 6.7-liter Cummings diesel engine.

Along with its mega power, this diesel engine also provides huge strength with a maximum tow rate of 30,000 pounds – a number that is unmatched by any other truck.

 

Abundant Interior Space

Trucks may be known for their spacious cargo beds, but that doesn't mean the interior can't provide some room, too. The abundant interior space found in the Dodge Ram 3500 Mega Cab models is proof of this. Mega Cab models provide ample room for all passengers, especially those in the rear, and they also feature four doors for easy access for all.

 

Manual Transmission

Nowadays, manual transmissions are becoming a thing of the past. In fact, most vehicles don't even offer a manual transmission at all anymore. But for those that love the fun a manual provides, you can still find it in the 2008  Ram 3500. The 3500 offers a six-speed manual gearbox with a clutch that is both responsive and user-friendly. Not only does this make driving the 3500 a breeze, but considering it is the only newer used truck that offers a manual gearbox, it is one of the most popular and best-selling trucks there is.
