Congratulations on your New Honda
Here are some tips to make your drive a little smoother.
Our mission to provide a world-class experience does not stop after the purchase of your vehicle. We understand well that there are steps to take after a purchase including registration, titles, insurance and vehicle knowledge. Every purchase is unique and we want you to know we are here for you in that journey.
Here are a few things we know can present challenges. We want to be in front of them so you are prepared and have the contacts you need to accomplish what you need to complete.
— LEGALITIES —
Situation: When purchasing a new vehicle, the first step is to make sure your new car is on your insurance plan.
Solution: Find the best-in-market, local, friendly insurance company backed by the power of trusted national agencies.
How we can help: Schomp Automotive has our own full service, independent brokerage that can assist you with all of your insurance needs. We offer auto, home, renters, umbrella, and commercial insurance. Visit schompinsurance.com today to look into your new insurance plan.
LICENSING / TEMP TAGS
Situation: Receiving your license plates within the legal timeframe of purchasing your vehicle (2 months after purchase date)
Solution: Even though you just purchased your vehicle, our recommendation is to make some time to set an appointment with your respective Department of Motor Vehicles location. Appointments can be farther out than one might expect, and past your temp tag expiration date.
How we can help: We are happy to get you an updated temp tag for your vehicle. The fastest way is to contact your Client Advisor via call or text and we can set a time for you to come pick it up that is convenient for you. We are glad to help if you stop in – but in the spirit of time, we prefer to get that the process started before you arrive so we have it ready to go when you visit us. Visit https://dmv.colorado.gov to schedule an appointment.
— SEASONAL VEHICLE NOTIFICATIONS —
TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING
Situation:As the seasons change, it's not uncommon to see TPM indicators light up the dashboard. This is a common occurrence for new vehicle purchases, especially in Colorado, where the temperatures can change
rapidly. The tire pressure may have been set long ago, sometimes in Japan! As the vehicle changes climates, temperature changes and altitude changes, so does the tire pressure.
Solution: Many vehicles have onboard systems that provide readings of your individual tire pressures. On your drivers side interior door frame you will be able to see the specifications of the ideal tire pressure for your tires. If your tires are well out of range, connect with us so we can inspect for any damages that need to be repaired or fixed. If your readings are close to ideal, then most likely this is due to temperature and pressure fluctuations in our environment.
How we can help: Did you know that blending nitrogen gas with the air in your tires helps mitigate the contraction and expansion of tire pressure? If you have low profile tires then we highly recommend this service. We are also happy to help with giving you the guidance you need to understand where to get your ideal tire pressure specifications, and how to navigate your onboard systems to check them and conduct a reset test. Luckily, there are tire inflation stations at many gas stations and car wash locations for the occasional tune up while you are on the go!
— MAXIMIZING YOUR OWNERSHIP EXPERIENCE —
VEHICLE KNOWLEDGE & SECOND DELIVERIES
Situation: Today’s vehicles are incredibly impressive with new technology meant to optimize your driving experience. There have been great advancements in the usability of these systems, but at times we need a
refresher to make the most of the ownership experience.
Solution: Our ideal solution is to invite you back in for what we call a Second Delivery of your vehicle. We understand that it might not be feasible to go over every feature of your vehicle right after purchase. Plus, you now have your initial knowledge of how to utilize the systems and want to learn more about other items you have questions about, or want to learn deeper.
How we can help: In person or virtually, we can assist. Second Deliveries are a welcome exercise. We know the more you love your vehicle and the more you command it - the better your ownership experience will be. So, set up some time with us and let’s talk about cars – it’s what we love to do.
