My wife Susan and myself would like to thank the whole group of people that we dealt with today at Palm Chrysler and Dodge Dealership. Our salesman Ken was super and kept us informed the whole way during the sale. Also Dawn who delivered manuals and books, and Gary the sales manager was a joy to deal with.

If you recently purchased a new car and want to ensure that it stays looking new for years to come, it must be detailed thoroughly and regularly. But going to a shop for detailing services can be expensive. Fortunately, it’s not hard to detail your car at home. Use these tips to make sure that you are detailing your new car like a pro.
Clean the Interior
Start by removing trash, clutter, and floor mats from your car. After this, use a can of compressed air to ensure that all of the dust and dirt is dislodged. Vacuum the interior, and then spot-treat any stains that you see in the car. Use a damp cloth to wipe down the seats and dashboard, too. If you have leather seats, you can use a special cleaner with conditioner to extend the life of the leather seating. Clean the windows using a glass cleaner, unless you have aftermarket tinting, in which case you should use soda water instead.
Wash the Exterior
Before you wash your car, it’s important to park it in the shade to ensure that the sheet metal is cool. Rinse the vehicle and the wheels without soap first. Then, work from the top to the bottom using carwash soap and a car sponge. Use a chamois or a soft terry cloth towel to dry the vehicle, and then apply a special cleaner to the wheels to get rid of all of the built-up road grime.
Wax the Sheet Metal
Once the vehicle is dry, apply wax extensively. The doorjamb, door hinges, bumpers, wheels, and headlight covers should all be covered in wax. Polishing your new car will not only give it a glossy finish, but it will also restore and protect the paint.
On the front of most Chevrolet vehicles since the early 1920s, the Chevy Bowtie is one of the most recognizable car emblems in the world. The Chevrolet bowtie was introduced in 1913, a few years after Durant returned from a trip to France. Some speculate that the inspiration for the Chevrolet bowtie was born out of a wallpaper design in a Parisian hotel. Others say that Durant doodled it one night at a family dinner, inspired by nothing more than soup and fried chicken. It’s also possible that Durant drew the Chevy Bowtie shortly after seeing a logo used by Coalettes, a fuel product used for fires. However debatable the source of Durant’s inspiration, it’s undeniable that the bowtie logo he created has been an essential part of Chevrolet’s brand identity.

I have not had a bad experience with service in the five years I have been taking my Toyotas to Palm. In recent times the two service representatives I have dealt with, John and Christa have always given me very professional, quality service. My vehicles were always serviced correctly and quickly.
