5 Spring Car Tips from Thompson


This winter has been brutal, especially on your vehicle, but there is light at the end of tunnel, spring is almost here! And if you have been waiting to service your vehicle, Thompson is here to help. With warmer weather comes more weekend getaways and you want to be sure your car is ready for the upcoming spring season.

The experts at Thompson  want to assure you will be ready for whatever road you choose to take.

Here are a few tips to help you get on your way:

1) Check your tire pressure:  Temperatures below 32° reduce tire pressure by at least 1 P.S.I. Check the inside of your car door or glove box to find out what the proper air pressure should be for your vehicle. If your tires are below the manufacturer recommended pressure, your tires exert more force and decreases your fuel economy. Do not forget to check your spare and ensure it is properly inflated.

2) Check wiper blades: Winter can be harsh on your wipers. The rubber can crack and split because of ice, snow, rain and just plain overuse. Even if you do not see any cracks or splits, your wipers may become streaky and thus increasing your chance of an accident.

3) Check belts and hoses:  Cold winter weather can wreak havoc on your belts and hoses. Make sure you inspect and replace any that are worn, cracked, blistered, brittle or too soft. Belts and hoses older than five years, even if they look intact, may need to be replaced.

4) Wash your car: This may sound like a no brainier, but a simple car wash can help increase the life of your car and help reduce the likelihood of having a big repair. Road salt and brine are great for melting snow, but they can take a major toll on your cars undercarriage and paint. If you do not have a lot of time to wash the vehicle completely, washing the undercarriage will wash away any salt that may possibly rust your exhaust or fuel lines.

5) Check battery and connections: Cold weather can decrease your battery's power by up to 60% and increase the chance of getting stranded. Make sure to have your battery connections checked for signs of corrosion - this could be a sign of a bad battery and can lead to poor performance. A quick check by our technicians can guarantee that your battery is working properly.

Jack Thompson Honored with Lifetime Achievement Award



On January 26, 2009 The American International Automobile Dealers Association (AIADA) today honored longtime member and past director John H. (Jack) Thompson of Doylestown, PA with the David F. Mungenast, Sr. Lifetime Achievement Award. The award, named after the late AIADA Chairman and legendary St. Louis-area automobile dealer, was presented during AIADA's 39th Annual Meeting and Luncheon held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.

"This year's award winner has claimed the respect of dealers and industry employees in all corners of the country," said AIADA President Cody Lusk. "Jack is remarkable not just for his unwavering commitment to protecting the livelihoods of international auto dealers, but also for his strength as a leader and reputation for generosity."

Thompson was one of the first Toyota dealers in the United States, opening for business in 1969. In 1989 he once again blazed a trail as one of the country's first Lexus dealers. He credits his success, and correspondingly high customer satisfaction and retention scores, to the philosophy that he is not in the car business, but the people business. In 1997 He won the Time Magazine Quality Dealer of the Year award and in 1998 the Sports Illustrated Dealer of Distinction.

Thompson's love of cars extends past the office. Over the years he has accumulated one of the largest vintage car collections in the country, focused primarily on vintage race cars and European models. Jack is a member of the Sport Car Club of America and has served as that organization's chief executive steward. Active in his community, Thompson has also served as a board member of the land preservation group Heritage Conservancy, the title sponsor of the Doylestown Arts Festival, and as a host of the once annual Susan G. Komen Drive for the Cure.

Today, Thompson owns and operates six dealerships in both Doylestown and Warrington, PA: Thompson Toyota, Thompson Lexus, and Thompson BMW in Doylestown and Porsche of Bucks County, Audi Warrington and Thompson Volkswagen in Warrington. He has been a member of AIADA since 1975.
