May 24th is National Heat Awareness day, but in our state (Florida), the heat should be taken into consideration everyday. Heat is one of the leading weather-related causes of death in the country and it is also deadly to animals, too.
We have all heard stories on the news about children or pets animals dying from being left in a vehicle with the air off and windows up. The temperature in a car rises much faster than most people realize, and in just 20 minutes a car can get to an unbearable temperature. With that being said, we’d like to inform you about Florida law, HB 131.
Passed by the Florida legislature in 2016, HB 131 was passed to prevent deaths and injury caused when animals or children are left unattended in cars. Basically, the law grants civilians that break the window of a vehicle to rescue an unattended person or animal with immunity from civil liabilities due to vehicle damages.Read the rest of this entry >>
There is a lot of speculation about the next generation Jeep Wrangler, which is expected to debut in 2018. If you are wondering what is true and what’s not, you came to the right place. The 2018 Wrangler has been spied a few times and the spy photos give us hope that many of the rumors are true.
Based on some spy shots, The Drive believes there is a good possibility that the new Wrangler hard top may be available with a retractable hard top. The reason this rumor has surfaced is because the interior spy shots of the Wrangler show a new button near the roof of the Jeep that looks like it could very well be a button that could control a retractable roof. Jeep has not yet confirmed this rumor, but if they do we are sure many Jeep lovers will be happy because the hardtop on the Wrangler is time consuming to remove.
Yes, the rumor that the Jeep Wrangler will be lighter is true. A majority of the panels on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler will be made of aluminum. The lighter weight material will allow for better handling, improved acceleration, and better fuel economy. All good things for the 2018 Wrangler!

Since 2007, Jeep has been producing third generation Wranglers, known as the Wrangler JK, but they’ll be changing that soon. For the 2018 model year, Jeep is replacing the Wrangler JK with a new platform and we wonder if it will be anything like the new Jeep concept, the Jeep Yuntu Concept, which was introduced in China at the Shanghai Auto Show 2017. We can only hope …
The Jeep Yuntu Concept is unlike any Jeep model in the U.S. The concept is a PHEV and it is a seven-passenger vehicle, which are two elements that would make Jeep’s lineup in the U.S. more versatile. In addition to the Yuntu Concept’s impressive electric range of 40 miles, the Jeep has advanced technology like wireless battery recharging, facial recognition and gesture controls.
While we can’t expect all of the advances of the Yuntu to be introduced in 2018, it is possible Jeep could work them into their next designs over time. In addition to the changes to the Wrangler, the Jeep brand has several other changes, like the revival of the Jeep Grand Wagoneer and the Wrangler pickup, planned for the next few years.Read the rest of this entry >>
