Recently Edmunds.com released a list entitled the “Top 10 Trucks for the Working Man (or Woman).” Of course you can expect to see the standard RAM and Ford models, but our Maryland Toyota dealership has bragging rights that both the Tacoma and Tundra made the list.
When it comes to compact trucks, Toyota seems to be one of the only manufacturers excels in the market with the 2013 Tacoma. With basic configuration, the reliability you expect from the company, and a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine with 159-hp and 180 lb-ft of torque, you get exactly what you need when you it.
Even though four-doors seem to be overrunning the pickup truck segment, the Tacoma stands strong with its regular cab. Some people don’t need a gigantic truck, just the power and accessibility, which is where the Tacoma prevails.
Of course Maryland Toyota shoppers can get a larger pickup with the 2013 Tundra. Your can outfit the Tundra with 2×4 or 4×4 drivetrains and plenty of seating styles. A 4.0-liter V6 engine delivers 270-hp and 278 lb-ft of torque for those tougher jobs that Tacoma wasn’t made for. Of course, the 5.7 V8 is great if you have to move something along the lines of a spaceship!
Although Toyota does not specialize in trucks the way companies like RAM do, it is a great accomplishment to have both (and the only) pickups models Toyota manufactures make edmunds.com’s list. For more information on both models please call Pohanka Toyota of Salisbury in Maryland at (866) 547-3989 or visit http://www.pohankatoyotamd.com/2013-toyota-models-pid22885.

Did you blow your transmission? Does the engine seem like it is shot? These problems call for one of two actions, repair or replace. As a leading Salisbury, MD Hyundai dealership, we have some tips to help your decision.
Yes, we know it is very hard to give up your beloved car. We also know some of you are looking for an excuse to ditch your car. Either way, MD Hyundai drivers should not make hasty decisions.
When it comes to repair you have a couple of huge benefits such as no monthly car payments, no down payment fees, no credit checks, and no loan process! If you know what is wrong with your car you have two options, DIY or bring it to a mechanic.
We are a leading MD Hyundai service center, so you can get your repairs done at Pohanka Hyundai of Salisbury, or you can get your parts here. Either way, we offer genuine OEM parts so they are covered by warranties.
If your car doesn’t look so great and is creating a chain reaction of problems, then you should look at replacing it. You may love your college ride, but it might be more affordable to replace it.
Junking a car can give you some extra cash for a down payment. If your repairs are worth more than the car is, then junk it. You can start with a clean slate on a newer car and keep up with its maintenance now that you are more responsible.
There are clearly benefits to both sides, but you need to make an educated decision. Just because you want a new car doesn’t mean you should scrap yours while it has life left. By investing the money now you could be saving more for a nicer car later. However, there are times when we have to accept fate.
If you need help with what to do with your vehicle please feel free to call Pohanka Hyundai of Salisbury in Maryland at (866) 546-7957 or visit http://www.pohankahyundaimdservice.com/ask-tech.aspx

From T-Rex’s to aliens and everything in between, Mercedes-Benz has been beside them all. Maryland Mercedes-Benz owners may see their car ripped apart by prehistoric teeth or transporting a green galactic worm at turbo speeds.
It is not secret the vehicles at your local Maryland Mercedes-Benz dealership have a rich history. Handcrafted engines and a racecar lineage are just the beginning, but this superior craftsmanship has been showcased on the silver-screen.
Catch phrases are very popular in movies, and they can instantly define a vehicle. In “The Rookie” Clint Eastwood drove a Mercedes-Benz out of the window of one building and through the skylight of another, which later lead to the phrase “engineered like no other car.”
In “Men In Black Two” Will Smith helped coin the phrase “the new hotness” to describe the E500. His car did have some modifications for fighting aliens, but Maryland Mercedes-Benz shoppers can still get some fantastic features of their own.
Speaking of aliens, it is surprising to see how many of them appreciate the luxury car manufacturer’s style. In “Transformers: Dark Side Of The Moon,” one of the transformers hits earth and instantly chose to design itself after a silver SLS AMG.
Sticking to the far-fetched, as one of the most ground-breaking movies of its time, it is an honor Jurassic Park chose a Mercedes-Benz to get destroyed by a T-Rex. The M-Class is capable of tackling many terrains, but it is not tested to withstand gigantic predator dinosaurs. Also, if you put a tiger inside a 280 SE Convertible like they did in the Hangover, you can probably kiss your pristine interior goodbye.
These vehicles may have made it through some crazy situations, but please don’t try any of these stunts at home. Also, if you have a T-Rex keep it chained up properly. Those who plan on properly owning a luxury vehicle, please call Mercedes-Benz of Salisbury in Maryland at (888) 546-7995 or visit http://www.pohankamercedesmd.com//baltimore-md-new-mercedes-benz.
