The 2012 Washington Auto Show is coming up and we couldn’t be more excited!
The first day kicks off at noon on Friday, January 27th with over 700 makes and models on display! Ride & Drives for Toyota, Fiat, and Cadillac will be running all week from 12pm to 10pm at night. In addition, be sure to attend the Advanced Technology SuperHighway, where over 28 automotive manufacturers will present 65,000 square feet of modern innovations in automotive safety and green technology.
Of all the cars on display, there are a few that you’ve got to see. One of which is the Volvo XC60 Plug-In Hybrid Concept, a vehicle that could deliver 270 horsepower and get as much as 100 mpg! One of the best designs from recent auto shows is the 2013 Ford Fusion, a car that has garnered long stares and has already earned an award for “Best Production Vehicle” by Eyes on Design at NAIAS in Detroit.
For enthusiasts, a must-see is the all-new 2013 Scion FR-S which was created under a partnership between Toyota and Subaru to create a domineering sports coupe. We think that they’ve done just that.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Who’s ready for Turkey Day and some Black Friday shopping?
I’m excited to have some free time to start blogging again! With all the heavy traffic out there, I thought everyone could use some tips on how to save a few MPG’s while you’re out visiting friends and family or out bargain shopping.
Here are a few simple, yet effective, ways to improve fuel-efficiency:
- Keep your windows closed when driving
- Remove weight by taking out un-needed items from your car/trunk
- Quite simply – drive slower
- If possible, avoid the stop-and-go traffic by taking back roads to and from your destinations
- Remember to check your tire pressure before heading out, as this is a good way to ensure a safe vehicle and enhance MPG’s
For those of you who are out hunting for bargains this Friday, be sure to stay warm and have fun. To pack in as many bargains as possible, a good amount of cargo space makes it possible to gather all of those goodies. With this in mind, we’re happy to see that cars like the Volvo XC70, Scion xB and Chevrolet Cruze are amongst the contenders for Kicking Tires’ “Best Cars for Black Friday Shopping.”
Have fun, be safe, and most of all – celebrate this great holiday with family and friends. Happy Thanksgiving from the Koons Family to yours!
