The 2013 Chrysler Town and Country holds strong as the top family-hauler. Here are some of is notable features:

Stow ‘n Go® Seats 

Minivan owners no longer have to choose between seats and storage space with the Town and Country’s Stow ‘n Go® Seats. With one touch, the second- and third-row seats fold and tumble, individually, into floor bins to make extra room for cargo. You can choose to fold down just one or all five; it’s all up to you. When the seats are in the upright position, the in-floor bins provide ample, concealed storage space. The third-row seats can also be flipped 90 degrees to provide comfortable tailgate-party seating, a class-exclusive feature.

Dual Screen Blue-Ray/DVD System

For the first time, a minivan has the ability to play Blue-Rays and DVDs. There are two available nine-inch, high-resolution screens that flip down from the overhead console so that rear passengers can watch two different things. It is also equipped with two USB ports, an HDMI port and game-console inputs to give kids a wider variety of entertainment. The overhead console housed the entertainment system and has storage space for the wireless headphones and remote. Ask your Chrysler Las Vegas dealer about this option for more information.

SafetyTec Package

The available SafetyTec package adds 42 features to keep you and your family safe. Included is Rear Cross Path Detection that senses any slow-moving cars behind the vehicle when put in reverse that would otherwise be difficult to see. The ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System uses sound wave technology that detects stationary objects to make it easier to parallel park. The package also includes Blind Spot Monitoring that warns you of other vehicles in your blind spot when the turn signal is on and SmartBeam® Intelligent Headlamps that automatically adjust from high- to low-beams for oncoming cars. Other features include rain-sensitive wipers, seven airbags and much more for the utmost safety.

Fuel Economizer

Press the “ECON” button during normal driving conditions to activate the fuel economizer to get the most out of your tank of gas. When the button is engaged, engine timing and transmission shift points are adjusted to improve fuel economy. Additionally, this feature lowers the engine idle speed, engages the torque converter clutch sooner so it remains on longer and the transmission shift at the appropriate times so that the engine can operate at lower speeds. All of these features make your Town and Country even more fuel efficient at 25 mpg on the highway.

Purchasing a car can be one of the most exciting moments in your life but the process can be stressful, especially if your credit score isn’t flawless.

Contrary to popular thought, purchasing with a not-so-perfect credit is possible. Chapman Chrysler Jeep is here to show you how.

First, what is a good and bad credit score, you ask?

Scores range from 300 to 800 and the average sits at 620. A poor credit score, according to freescore.com, is below 500 while an excellent one exceeds 720 points.

Your first step should be to determine your personal credit score. This can be accessed at your bank and is the most secure option, but you can also attain it through various websites including freescore.com, equifax.com and others. Be wary of scams.

Credit scores lower than 600 will encounter hurdles when trying to secure a loan to purchase a vehicle but rest assured that it isn’t impossible. Programs, tips and tricks are available to those who need them.

Your Vegas Jeep dealer has them.

First, select a vehicle that reflects your budget. Assess how much you can realistically dedicate each month to a car payment and share this with your car dealer.

If you wish to seek out a loan yourself, secure a list of banks in your area and conduct some research. Which bank is most reputable? Your best bet is to speak with a representative of the bank directly. Consider the interest rates and contract terms of the information they provide to you.

For example, Wells Fargo Bank has a program that provides auto loans to individuals with poor credit scores. You can apply online and receive a preemptive decision from the bank within seconds. There are also 104 Wells Fargo banks in Nevada available to you.

You can also arrange financing through Chrysler Henderson. Dealers work with you and several financial institutions across the nation to secure you the best deal. When visiting the dealership, bring with you pay stubs to prove a steady source of income, and utility bills from your residence (it is best if you have been there for a year or longer).

When at the dealership consider putting a considerable sum of money down, or lease a vehicle rather than purchasing one outright. Leasing typically has lower down payments and monthly payments. Not only that, but you would have access to the newest cars, trucks and sport utility vehicles.

If you have more time, consider improving your credit score before applying for an auto loan or purchasing a vehicle. Pay down or pay off credit card balances and try not to exceed using 30 percent of your given limit. This produces the quickest and most effective result.

Of course, Chapman Chrysler Jeep enjoys working with individuals on a case-by-case basis. Forget stress! They are available to provide customers with the car of their dreams.
