AS AUTO REPAIR COSTS RISE, BE SURE TO KNOW YOUR BMW REPAIR RIGHTS

Across the U.S., average repair costs increased by 10.15 percent to $367.84 in 2012; a year later, the cost nearly broke the $400 barrier, posting an increase of nearly 7 percent. Take note that this only includes data from “check engine light” repairs. Auto Repair Costs may be a pain, but it all comes with the responsibility of owning a car. In light of this trend, it pays to look back at a law that can help you make every cent count: the Florida Motor Vehicle Repair Act (FMVRA). Written Estimate Spanning Florida statutes 559.901 and 559.9221, the FMVRA took effect on January 1, 1981 to protect car owners from unscrupulous repairs. One of the key points of this law is the need for registered repair shops to furnish a written estimate for repairs costing over $100. This ... read more

CAR MAINTENANCE—QUALITY SERVICE FROM A TAMPA MERCEDES SERVICE CENTER

CAR MAINTENANCE—QUALITY SERVICE FROM A TAMPA MERCEDES SERVICE CENTER

Many automakers want to mirror the characteristics of their high-end cars in entry-level models, but very few succeed in this regard. The 2014 Mercedes Benz CLA 45 AMG, however, could very well be the exception. The model—which emulates the car manufacturer’s swanky $100,000 CLS63 AMG four-door coupe, truly appears to be a scaled-down version of the vehicle to which it is patterned after. The 2014 CLA is Mercedes’ latest and least-expensive offering. Don’t let this scaled-down model fool you, though; there is much more to this particular model than meets the eye. In fact, the 2014 CLA is so cool, Motor Authority voted it the Best Performance/Luxury Car To Buy 2014, along with the 2014 Porsche Cayman. Here’s what Motor Authority has to say about what many have dubbed ‘a game-changing vehicle’:   Truly, the 2014 CLA is a prized possession. Thus, when time comes for ... read more
