Twitter

Our world is connected via social networks such as Twitter and Facebook with millions of users worldwide.  Twitter is completely free and a great way to get information out to a large number of people. Twitter is more than just a place to vent your thoughts and indirectly chat with your contacts. Twitter is a great tool for getting news, keeping up with current events, finding quick answers to questions and much more.  Below are a few ways Twitter can be effectively used:

Twitter as a News Feed

By setting up RSS feeds, you can stay updated on current events, breaking news, sports and more. The Twitter network is enormous so you can set up your feed to include any topics, companies, or people that interest you.

Virtual Interaction

Hanging with friends and family is great, but we all have days where we’d rather watch Monday Night Football on our own couch without the added crowd. Twitter allows you to discuss the score, bad calls, and great plays virtually.  This can make your experience enjoyable without the need to entertain.

Find Answers

Depending on the number of followers you have, you can post your questions and receive feedback almost instantly.  If you can’t decide which vehicle model to purchase, you can reach out to your followers and get feedback from other people’s personal experiences.

These are just a few ways Twitter is used – there are many more.  You can get started by going to Twitter.com and signing up for a free account.  There you can create a username and edit your profile – try to pick an easy-to-find username so your friends and followers don’t have trouble finding you! Once you get started follow @ecar1 to keep up with our automotive tips, news and sales at eCarOne in Carrollton, Texas.

Multitasking Behind the Wheel

Multitasking Behind the Wheel - eCarOne Carrollton

Many people think they are great at multitasking.  Multitasking behind the wheel isn’t a great idea though.  Video gamers typically take pride in the fact that they can play a video game, while watching a TV show, and snacking all at the same time.  A study was done by Duke University and it showed that gamers are just as bad at multitasking behind the wheel as anyone else.  Point being that no one should do anything extra when driving. 

Stephen Mitroff, a researcher of the survey and professor of neuroscience and psychology at the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences says, “It doesn’t matter how much you’ve trained your brain, we just aren’t set up to do this.”  Through different testing it was shown that when doing multiple tasks all participants had a decline in performance. 

“Many people have this overconfidence in how well they can multi-task, and our study shows that this particularly is the case when they combine two visual tasks,” said, Zheng Wang, the lead author of the study. “People’s perception about how well they’re doing doesn’t match up with how they actually perform.”

Where do you fall in this category?  Do you consider your self ‘a great behind the wheel multitasker’?  Or do you choose to focus on the road?  Typically our cars are filled with precious cargo, human lives.  Is it really worth hurting yourself or someone else to get a text message sent out?  We think it can wait.

eCarone, in Carrollton, knows the importance of life and wants the road to be a safe place.  Visit our luxury used car dealership today to get a vehicle you can feel safe in.  We have many options including all used Acura, used BMW, and other reliable makes you can count on.

Trending Car Colors

If you ask a new car buyer what type of car they are looking for, most of the time they know the color they prefer.  The color of the car can say a lot about the personality of the driver.  Just like the fashion industry, the car colors and trends are always updating and changing.  Below are some of the colors and trends you will see on car lots soon.

 

dozerclearcoatjeepwrangler
 

 

Color: Dozer Clear Coat

Car: Jeep Wrangler

This Wrangler exclusively caters to younger buyers — this is an eye-catching shade made to draw attention.

 

peridotgreenmetallicporsche
 

 

Color: Peridot Green Metallic
Car: Porsche Cayman R

Peridot Green pulls two trends into one: in-your-face color and deep layers of metallic flakes. It may be the most cutting-edge color on the list, perfectly placed on a car made to carve corners. Peridot green is available only on the limited-production Cayman R — maybe the only car in production that can pull it off.

 

grabberbluefordmustang
 

 

Color: Grabber Blue
Car: Ford Mustang Boss 302

Another emerging trend in the car-color market is the comeback of pastels. From the soft yellows on Volkswagen’s new Beetles to Ford’s shade of drier blue on the Boss 302, pastels are back. The intense color and aggressive underpinnings conspire to make this blue Boss an instant classic.

 

starfirepearllexus
 

 

Color: Starfire Pearl
Car: Lexus LX 570

Pearl white is really strong with our luxury buyers, and most of those pearl three-stage colors came from our friends over at Audi in the mid ’70s. True to its name, the starfire pearl is a dazzling white pearl draped over the LX’s svelte body lines.

 

ultimateblackmetallicjaguar
 

 

Color: Ultimate Black Metallic
Car: Jaguar XF Series

Older people actually tend to stay away from black, because they can be high-maintenance and trap heat. But Jaguar’s Ultimate Black Metallic is a color that changes from deep blue to midnight to black depending on the time of day, rewarding while reinforcing the XF’s muscular physique.

Visit your local eCarOne dealership in Carrollton, Texas and find a luxury used vehicle in the color that best expresses you and your family. 

5 Cars: Small Size, Big Luxury

In the past, in order to get a luxury car you had to go big.  Because of increasing gas prices and environmental concerns, the definition of a luxury car has shifted.  Below are some lavishly small vehicles that provide style, luxury, performance, and comfort at very reasonable prices. 

2014 Chevrolet Impala

The new Chevrolet Impala will go on sale in early 2013 and looks to be a huge step up from the existing model. Its attractive styling, added high-tech features such as the available MyLink infotainment system, and more sophisticated chassis push it into premium-car territory.

2012 Dodge Charger

Since taking over Chrysler, Italian automaker Fiat has made moves to improve the look and feel of every Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram vehicle.

2013 Ford Taurus

Not content to rest on its laurels after completing a major overhaul of the Taurus in 2010, Ford has quickly followed up with improvements for 2013, tweaking its look and adding a new turbocharged 240-horsepower 4-cylinder engine.

2012 Hyundai Azera

No automaker packs more value into its cars than Hyundai, and the Azera just might be the value king. It’s not cheap, but it offers style, comfort and performance that rival cars costing tens of thousands of dollars more.

2013 Toyota Avalon

The Toyota Avalon was made specifically to compete against full-size American sedans. It brings Lexus levels of refinement and quality unmatched by competitors.

The Volvo C70

There’s more than an open car here. There’s the taste of the sea that says you’re on vacation. There’s the sight of the peak that makes you push on. There’s the sound of a laugh that makes you laugh. There’s the incomplete sentence that’s completely understood. There’s the wind using the clouds to keep the stars shiny. There’s the look of love. There’s the scent of fantasy. There’s the slap of reality. There are five senses that trigger emotions. There are emotions that inform rationality. There’s a sixth sense that knows this already. There’s common sense, of course. And there’s a Volvo C70. That’s why you drive one.

The marriage of form and function the C70 blends the safety & comfort you’ve come to expect from Volvo, with the beauty & harmony of Pininfarina style.  Experience the style of a convertible and the sportiness of a coupe.

Two cars in one for the exhilaration of driving under an open sky life is too short to accept compromise, so we decided to make two cars in one.  The c70’s retractable hardtop only takes 30 seconds to present you with a brand new car.

Enjoy the open road with friends through innovative Volvo design, the C70 fits four passengers comfortably.  So whether they like the wind in their hair, or prefer to avoid the elements, you and your friends can ride in style.

Great music, even with the top down the ultimate sound system, the C70 comes with 12 loudspeakers, a 900 watt digital amplifier, and iPod of USB connectivity – enjoy your music as much as you enjoy the road.

Safety reinvented the C70 takes safety to a new level of intelligence.  It can alert you if you are being over-taken while shifting lanes, stabilize itself and even handle incoming calls for you with Bluetooth.
