NEW LOCATION IN LEGENDS KANSAS CITY, KANSAS!!!
May, 2014 Woody’s Automotive Group, An Affiliate of Kline Corporation Announces The Opening Of Its Automotive Concept Store At the Legends Outlets In Kansas City, Kansas May 8th May, 2014, Chillicothe, MO-Woody’s Automotive Group, found at wowwoodys.com, based in Chillicothe MO, is delighted to announce the opening of its Automotive Concept Store at the Legends Outlet Mall in Kansas City, Kansas. The Woody’s Concept Store is the only known used car location of its type. Woody’s automotive Group regularly stocks all makes from exotic to economy based automobiles. The “concept” is to utilize technology, a vast inventory from exotic to economy based automobiles, a zero games/hassle approach and a zero pressure environment to assist people in finding the car they want at a payment that fits their monthly budget. To that end Woody’s has remodeled its new location, installing plenty of technology, lighting, sound and video screens to get the job done and has brought its very successful, no hassle, sales system to Kansas City. If a couple wants to spend the day together but one of them doesn’t enjoy shopping, that person may enjoy looking at some really cool cars while waiting for the other. Woody’s will also simply purchase a customer’s car. Woody’s Automotive Group is an affiliate company with Kline Corporation, Kline Van and Specialty Rental. Together these companies conduct business in the continuous 48 states and have office locations in Missouri, Kansas, Colorado and California with planned expansions to Maine and Arizona. Woody’s emphasizes a “no games approach” with the same low price posted on the vehicle/internet in their advertising and in the dealership. Woody’s prices are independent third party verified to be among the lowest in the nation with NO hidden tacked on fees. “We don’t raise the prices on ours in order to fool you by showing a higher value on yours” stated CEO, Brent Kline. “My father along with Grandpa Woody taught us how to do business by keeping things fun, simple, friendly and inexpensive” Kline further stated. The sales advisors are paid on a salary, to advise and assist the customer into doing what is best for the customer.” Woody’s picked the Legends Outlet Mall due to its great management, stores and attractions. “The mall…like our dealership… attracts people from a huge region.” “The mall has great stores and restaurants, is well run and has attractions such as Nebraska Furniture Mart, Cabelas, Kansas Speedway, T-Bones baseball, and the MLS Champion Sporting Kansas City soccer team” said Kline. “Furthermore, I believe these customers will travel to our regional location in Chillicothe, MO once they understand how we do business…how different we are from the typical dealer and that we have over 1000 cars available in the Kansas City region alone…not to mention the thousands more available outside of our region” Kline further stated. Kline went on to say “People drive further to eat at a good restaurant and an automobile is the second largest purchase customers make.” “There are good reasons people are willing to drive to and wait for a table at a good restaurant and that is a pleasant vs. an unpleasant experience…only with a car the steaks are higher (pun intended).” “With our no hassle approach and our huge selection, Woody’s is certainly worth the drive” stated Kline. Kline is a third generation car dealer joining his grandfather Woodrow (Woody) Wilson Kline and Woodrow (Fritz) Kline. The original dealership began in 1947 selling the brand of Kaiser Frazier. The store is officially scheduled to open May 8th, 2014.

Windshield wipers are a very importance piece of your vehicle, and it’s easy to forget to change them until it’s too late. Have you ever tried driving through a rain storm with worn wipers? I have, and I can tell you it’s not fun! Not to mention completely unsafe. Here are a few FAQ’s regarding windshield wipers.
“When should I change my windshield wipers?” – If they start showing wear such as cracks and discoloration then that’s a big sign they are used up and need to be replaced. Other indications of worn wipers are streaks, un-wiped areas, and if they makes noises or chattering sounds.
“How often should I be replacing my windshield wipers?” – Generally every 6-12 months.

So we all love the 2013-2014 Dodge Durango R/T’s!! Maybe its the way they look, the way they handle, comfortablility but my main reason is the safety! The new Durango’s offer safety at a new level in SUVs and that is why they remain on top! Equipped with a multistage airbag system, the Dodge Durango can sense the force of an impact and deploy the airbags accordingly. Thus, not all going off at the same time, but as your body needs them! With blind spot monitoring, you will have 4 eyes, which in this case, is a good thing! Helping see what you can not. Electronic stability control helps you, the driver, keep control of your vehicle at all times. Reducing the engine throttle if necessary as well! With a large SUV, it may be difficult at times to see behind you. With the ParkView Back-up Camera, you will no longer have to worry about the unseen. The available ParkView Rear Park Assist System, makes an audible warning when approaching an object in reverse, at low speeds. So if you like the safety that comes standard in these sweet SUVs, check out Woody’s Automotive Group. We have several and have the means to find you the perfect one! Call us today at (888)869-0963 and speak to one of our awesome sales advisers today!
So after research several different sites, I have thrown together another review. This time its the Dodge Durango 2013-present.
Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
The 2014 Dodge Durango large crossover SUV is available in four trim levels: SXT, Limited, R/T and Citadel. You’ll also come across Durangos with Rallye badging; the Rallye is an equipment package on the SXT. Seven-passenger seating is standard across the board; optional second-row captain’s chairs reduce capacity to six. Standard equipment on the SXT includes 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, foglights, roof rails, heated sideview mirrors, full power accessories, cruise control, tri-zone automatic climate control (includes separate rear air-conditioning), a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, cloth upholstery, a fold-flat front passenger seat, a 60/40-split-folding and reclining second-row seat, a 50/50-split-folding third-row seat, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and a six-speaker sound system with a 5-inch touchscreen display and USB and auxiliary inputs. Several option packages are available on the Durango SXT. The Popular Equipment Group adds heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The Rallye package adds 20-inch wheels, polished exhaust tips and additional body-color exterior trim while deleting the roof rails. The Limited has most of the above equipment as standard but reverts to 18-inch wheels. It also comes with a remote ignition, leather upholstery, driver memory settings, a six-way power passenger seat, a 115-volt power outlet and an 8.4-inch touchscreen display with an upgraded version of Dodge’s Uconnect system. The latter includes voice control, text-to-speech messaging capability, emergency roadside assistance, streaming Internet radio and 3G Wi-Fi capability. The larger touchscreen and related features are optional on the SXT. The R/T essentially includes the upgrades of the Limited along with a V8 engine, 20-inch alloy wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, xenon headlights, body-color accents, a power liftgate and an upgraded nine-speaker sound system! The Citadel reverts to a less aggressive suspension tune and a standard V6 engine, but otherwise builds on the R/T’s equipment list, adding automatic high-beam control, automatic wipers, a sunroof, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, an eight-way power front-passenger seat, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a navigation system with traffic updates and a Yelp-based search engine. All these amenities are optional on the R/T. Optional on both the R/T and Citadel is the Technology Group, which includes adaptive cruise control, a forward collision warning/mitigation system and a blind-spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alerts. Also available on these trims is a rear-seat Blu-ray/DVD entertainment system with dual video screens and an HDMI input.
Powertrains and Performance
The 2014 Dodge Durango is offered with either a V6 or V8 engine. While the SXT only comes with the V6 and the R/T only comes with the V8, the Limited and Citadel trims can be equipped with either one. Depending on the model, rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive is available. The light-duty AWD system is only available with the V6 engine. The on-demand 4WD system features dual-range gearing (which makes it more capable on rugged terrain) and is standard with the V8 engine. All models come with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 3.6-liter V6 engine is rated at 290 horsepower (295 hp with the Rallye package).The EPA’s estimated fuel economy is (18 mpg city/25 mpg highway) with rear-wheel drive and (17 city/24 highway) with all-wheel drive. The 5.7-liter V8 is good for 360. Rear-drive models are rated at (14 city/23 highway), while AWD versions are rated at (14 city/22 highway). Properly equipped, a V8 Durango can tow up to 7,400 pounds, while the V6 version tops out at 6,200 pounds — in either case, far more than most rival crossover SUVs can tow.
Antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, trailer sway control, front side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags are standard on every 2014 Dodge Durango. A rearview camera and parking sensors are optional on the SXT and standard on all other Durangos. Models with Uconnect Access (included with the 8.4-inch touchscreen) have an emergency telematics system that connects you with 911 operators at the touch of a button and provides stolen vehicle tracking. Optional on the Limited, Citadel and R/T is a blind-spot monitoring system with cross-traffic alerts. Note that the available Technology Group available on R/T and Citadel models now includes a more advanced forward collision warning and mitigation system that automatically applies the brakes in potential collision situations. In government tests, the Durango received five out of five stars for side-impact protection.
Interior Design and Special Features
Modern and functional, the 2014 Dodge Durango’s cabin has been designed with families in mind. Regardless of trim level, the design is attractive and features upscale materials. With this latest update to the Durango, materials quality is now class-leading, and the cabin has an uncommonly elegant feel for this class. The gauges look better, too, with crisp graphics and a useful trip computer display. The front seats are roomy and comfortable. The Durango’s easily accessed third row offers a surprising amount of leg- and headroom (even for 6-footers). With the second- and third-row seats folded down, the Durango can carry up to 84.5 cubic feet of cargo.
Steering is responsive and the Durango is easy to maneuver on almost any road. On a long interstate cruise, it provides a quiet and relaxed cabin environment. Midrange acceleration is adequate for passing and merging, and there’s a noticeable improvement in responsiveness with the new eight-speed automatic transmission. As expected, the V8 offers brisk all-around performance and a satisfyingly deep exhaust note on acceleration.

It’s Tech Tuesday which means we are going to share another cool tech Tuesday Tip brought to you by Jessica! The new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep & Ram vehicles have an awesome media center called Uconnect. These systems are capable of doing a lot of really cool things, one of the features I’m going to talk about today is the Yelp app. Imagine yourself in a new city (on business perhaps?) and you want to find a really good Mexican restaurant but you aren’t sure where to start. With the Uconnect system all you have to do is select Apps then Yelp. It will give you several different categories, or you search for something more specific. Of course, restaurants aren’t the only thing you can search for. Nightlight, entertainment, coffee shops, gas stations etc etc. Yelp also has some really good reviews so you can find the highest rated businesses right at your fingertips. Isn’t that convenient? The Uconnect system is only available in Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram vehicles. There are several different types of systems and features for each vehicle. If you’d like to learn more, just give Woody’s Automotive Group a call at 888-658-3616 and any of our sales advisers will gladly help. Stay tuned for another Tech Tuesday tip next week!
