Hybrids, Self-driving, and the Future of the Family Automobile

Hybrids, Self-driving, and the Future of the Family Automobile

Welcome to the March blog! Today we’ve got the future of cars on our minds. As technology develops and transforms industry, it’s amazing to think that the way we approach driving and automobiles may completely change.    Just a few weeks ago, we heard that Volkswagen is getting into the aircraft business, but thinking about small personal vehicles instead of commercial airliners or helicopters. That seems a bit far-off now, especially with aircraft still being so dependent on fossil fuels to be of use. Not to mention the impracticality of people flying around metro areas!   The practicality of the implementation of new technology is dependent on setting. Some are the ideas in future cars are just theory now, but some are already being implemented into cars. While we’re still off from self-driving vehicles, they are not too far from city streets. Self-driving cars may be a difficult sell on mountain roads, especially in rural mountain areas where a misse ... read more

Bringing the Romance (With a Pandemic On)

Bringing the Romance (With a Pandemic On)

Photo by Satya Tiwari on Pixabay   It’s a shame, but this might be one of the least enthusiastic Valentine’s Days on record, with the pandemic and so much in turmoil right now. The most common advice for how to proceed is to stay at home. But there isn’t much advice about what to do to keep spirits up when we’ve spent so long cooped up together that we have started to lose sight of each other.   It’s easy to become complacent in a situation like a pandemic. Some rules structure what you can and can’t do, restrictions on things you might ordinarily do, and cautions and flags all through something as simple as a shopping trip.   But please remember that it is vitally important to keep some semblance of an occasion such as St. Valentine’s Day going. It’s a gauge by which couples measure the interest their ... read more

Making 2021 A Better Year For You & Your Family

Making 2021 A Better Year For You & Your Family

By almost every account, 2020 was a pretty bad year. There were ups and downs, valleys and peaks, but COVID-19 damaged families all over the planet, and forever changed businesses and travel in North America.    If that wasn’t bad enough, threats of murder hornets and actual encroaching wildfires turned this into a year of constant crises, and we are so glad to finally see it go, so that we can start looking forward to a new year. There’s a vaccine being mass produced and that gives us hope that very soon, we can come together as a community again, safely and without guilt.   2021 has plenty of it’s own issues waiting in the wings. We’re on the brink of recession. We don’t know if the pandemic is truly over yet. There’s unrest everywhere, and anger over what the pandemic has cost us in our families and in our communities.    But the negatives are only a small part of the picture of what could possibly be in store for us in th ... read more

What Is “Concierge Service” & How It Makes A Difference To YOU!

What Is “Concierge Service” & How It Makes A Difference To YOU!

Life can be hectic. As we approach the holidays, it’s even harder to get the simplest things done. It would be so much better, for instance, if refuse service workers moved gently and quietly into your neighborhood, collecting your garbage not from the curb but where you store your bins, and sanitized the bins before they left.    That’s a level of service we are told is impossible, but it's only impossible because government regulation of sanitation services prevents a higher level of service for those willing to pay a premium. Which is too bad, because I imagine there’s a market out there for people who would prefer to pay a bit more to not have to handle waste in their busy daily lives and bring it to the curb on time.   Sometimes, it’s not convenient to bring your vehicle in. You would have to budget time to wait if there’s a line, and the time necessary to place your order with a shop. And then to arrange a rental car or a loaner ca ... read more

Gratitude For Our Cars

Gratitude For Our Cars

It’s November, and this year is almost at a close. In a month, most of us will sit down to the traditional Thanksgiving roast turkey feast. Will rub shoulders with family we haven’t seen all summer, watching football and films, and making plans for Christmas together. Some of our most vulnerable family will have to miss it this year, making it for many people, the first Thanksgiving in memory they’ve not been able to have some family near. In just eight more days, it will have been only 400 years since European pilgrims on board the Mayflower first looked across th horizon at the shores of Cape Cod. To mark the moment in thanks to God for getting them through an awful 65-day nightmare of rough seas and the ship being tossed about that included a damaged mast halfway across the Atlantic ocean,  they read out Psalm 100 in unison.  Thanksgiving is a time of reconciliation and of forgiveness in our families, and a time to reflect on the graces we have been sho ... read more

How To Care For Your Tires

How To Care For Your Tires

Few things can affect the longevity of your car's lifespan more than your tires. That's why proper tire care is such an essential aspect of your vehicle's maintenance. If you play your cards right, any new set of tires you put on your car will last you an incredibly long time and keep you and your family driving safely for the long haul. Below find some of Antero Automotive's favorite tips and tricks to help your tires last like never before.  Tire Rotations: It's widely known that your front tires tend to wear out much faster than your back tires. This is due to your front tires' constant turns while you drive, which your back tires do less. That's why it's necessary to rotate your tires regularly! You'll want to rotate your tires roughly every 5,000 miles, though your vehicle's factory specifications may differ slightly. Frequent tire rotation will allow all your tires to wear evenly so you won't need to replace the tw ... read more

There’s a Reason We Have a Love Affair With Trucks

There’s a Reason We Have a Love Affair With Trucks

While there are many different types of cars on the road today, and even more being made in the meantime, the team at Antero Automotive has a genuine love affair with trucks. You may not be a truck lover yet, so read on to discover why you should be! First and foremost, trucks are known for power. While many people prefer the zip that comes with a smaller car, trucks can’t be beaten when it comes to powerful engines. While your fuel economy might suffer for this (especially with diesel!), the feeling of hitting that gas pedal and feeling your engine roar to life is second to none. Next on the list of why we love trucks so much is because of their hauling capacity. This is a huge reason why so many people fall in love with and utilize trucks; they can carry a load! A truck bed is imperative for many types of labor and jobs, making trucks ideal for working men or women. With the capability to get the job done, no car can compare to a pickup truck’s carrying capacity. Similar ... read more
