Orlando, Fla.—For us in Florida there are plenty of scenic, interesting roads to enjoy on a Sunday trip with the family in a nice car. Some are worth an overnight stay or maybe a weekend getaway to enjoy local attractions.
An official scenic highway or byway, as classified by the Florida Department of Transportation, must have at least one of these qualities:
The #1 for us is obvious
US-1 (Overseas Highway), Florida (image above)
Your car should put away its figurative dancing shoes for this one — the road was originally designed in the 1930s for train traffic, so there aren’t any twists or sudden turns. But what US-1 doesn’t offer in driver involvement, it makes up for with one-of-a-kind scenery that you can only get while driving on a route that connects Miami with Key West and relies on 42 bridges over Atlantic waters. Even though you can make the drive in four hours or less, that would mean missing the white sand beach (and the snorkeling) at Bahia Hona State Park. So do take that detour.
Anna Maria Island makes our #2
A seven-mile strip of beautiful white-sand beaches line the barrier island of Anna Maria Island between the turquoise Gulf of Mexico and peninsular Florida. Also found in Anna Maria Island, at the southern mouth of Tampa Bay, are the cities of Bradenton Beach, Anna Maria and Holmes Beach. Strict regulations govern the type of buildings and businesses allowed on Anna Maria Island, but excellent dining.
#3 is A1A Coastal Byway
If you opt for the more historic options our #3 will catch all your senses. Beautiful 72 miles from Jacksonville to Flagler Beach!
A fun fact about this one is that from November to January, St. Augustine’s historic district hosts Nights of Lights, a holiday light display that National Geographic crowned one of the world’s 10 best.
You may now be wondering what in the world could make a road trip like this more enjoyable?
Now imagine yourself enjoying all this nature and beauty in the unrivaled luxury of this magnificent certified pre-owned 2014 Cadillac XTS Luxury where everything in it will enhance your experience to make it a most memorable one.
For this model and many more options visit Orlando Preowned, located at 3701 W Colonial Drive, Orlando, FL.

Orlando, Fla.— Looking for best used cars to take the road this summer? Whether you have a family or not, during the summer holidays everyone finds a reason to escape to visit family, tourist sites, national or state parks, beaches and everything else we can find in the way.
BIG FAMILY TRAVEL
When you travel with a big family, you may feel more comfortable driving a mini van or an SUV with more seat rows, because you’ll want a vehicle big enough for all occupants to be comfortable with plenty of room to stretch out, and some of us who love pets want them to travel safe and comfortable as well.
This 2016 Dodge Caravan for example, is 14818 miles below market average, and priced below Kelly Blue Book Fair Purchase Price! It also comes with some phenomenal features to make your family travel more enjoyable with great looking Aluminum Wheels, plus:
-2 Row Stow ‘N Go w/Tailgate Seats
-2nd Row Buckets w/Fold-In-Floor
-2nd Row Power Windows
-3 Zone Manual Control Front & Rear A/C,6 Speakers
-Bluetooth® Streaming Audio
For those traveling accompanied or alone, but with fuel budget in mind, the obvious choices are compact vehicles like this 2017 Kia Forte LX that offers you an approximate of 25 miles in the city and 34 when in the highway.
Or this 2016 Nissan Versa 1.6 S Plus that would yield an average of 31 miles in the city and 40 in highways.
If more space is preferred for luggage or pets, this 2015 Toyota RAV4 XLE makes the perfect cut with an average of 24 miles in the city and 34 in highways.
This 2014 Ford F-150 XLT is an excellent selection if you are hauling small cargo like a boat, jet skis, storage, or a medium sized RV. This one with 5.0L V8 FFV 6-Speed Automatic Electronic RWD is also priced below the Kelly Blue Book fair purchase price! Includes features like:
-Trailer Tow Package
-Electronic Stability Control
-18” Chrome-Clad Aluminum Wheels
-4.2” LCD Productivity Screen in Instrument Cluster
and much more.

ORLANDO, Fla.— Summer is about to officially begin for the rest of the country, but for us in Florida it started long ago. If you are thinking of upgrading your used car, the obvious hassle-free option is a Certified Pre-owned.
If the super high summer temperatures worry you, it is important to know there are technological features designed to keep you cool while driving your certified pre-owned car. White cars are best at refracting light as it reflects every color in the visible spectrum. So the best color to keep the interior cool would be one that reflects the most sunlight, which would be white or silver in highly reflective/glossy sheen.
Interior fabrics/leathers mostly absorb heat, so the same concept applies: the darker the color, the hotter it will get. Putting your car undercover when possible, or having one of those sun retractors for windshield is a good idea in any situation.
At the time of selecting your next used car, choose a vehicle with some hot-weather must haves.
This a phenomenal feature that allows you to start your car while you’re still away, even a few minutes before getting in. Some models even allow you to turn on the air conditioning remotely, so you the interior of your vehicle is already cool when you arrive. Isn’t it cool!
Dual Zone Automatic Climate Control
This feature enables each front-row occupant to set a separate temperature for the vehicle’s climate control. With tri-zone automatic climate control, passengers in the back row(s) can also control their own temperature setting.
We already talked about sun retractors for the windshield, but what about the sides? Built-in sunshades help you reduce amount of sunshine that enters the cabin. Especially when you have young kids to protect from hot temperatures, this can save your day.
As with heated seats, many ventilated seats offer settings that allow you to adjust the temperature of your car’s chairs to your liking.
Some of the models that offer this feature would be Kia Forte, Chevrolet Malibu, and Chrysler 200.
A regular sunroof, or panoramic, will help you enjoy the beautiful sunny weather in a very comfortable atmosphere inside your certified pre-owned vehicle.
Chilled Storage Compartments
For some customers this is a little bit of a stretch, but some others find real value in having the capability to keep beverages cool even if you need to drive for a while. The feature is particularly useful for drivers or passengers which medications that need to kept in cool temperatures.
At Orlando Preowned, we have perfect solutions for every of those needs. Come visit us today at 3701 West Colonial Drive in Orlando, check out our entire inventory of certified pre-owned vehicles of all makes and models and buy with confidence your next great vehicle to be completely summer ready.

Orlando, Fla.— You know what they say Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder. Everybody loves muscle cars, although they’re not for everyone. An important feature that makes muscle cars so distinctive is the V8 engines that come with them. Sports cars, on the other hand, have smaller engines that might still be powerful, but often because they are accompanied by forced induction. In short, muscle car engines are powerful and sports car engines are quick.
The size of the car is comparatively midsized making them ideal for variety of uses. Muscle car as the name suggests are powerful not only under the hood but also in the body. They offer extra protection to the occupants making it perfect of families.
For an enthusiast there are many benefits to owning one. For most, the fun and excitement of owning and driving one is all the benefit they need, others enjoy cruising, and showcasing their cars in auto shows. Some don’t event consider them a mode of transport, but a hobby.
Muscle cars are associated with bold curves that just make the cars look like their power is trying to bulge out of the seams. Sports cars aren’t quite so rippling. Instead, sports cars are usually made up of sleek likes that aren’t as muscle-like as their powerful counterparts.
American muscle cars first appeared in the 1960s as manufacturers appealed to the massive baby-boomer generation. Boomers wanted power and excitement, and they got it thanks to big V-8 engines, and at affordable prices no less. Detroit marketing used everything from racing participation to cartoon birds—remember the Plymouth Road Runner?—to sell boomers the hot muscle cars that they craved.
Take Mustangs for example —The entire world knows the Mustang. This iconic muscle car has been in production without interruption since 1964.
In a Camaro on the other side, it’s tough to see out of any current Camaro coupe thanks to its gun-slit windows, but it’s easy to see that the car is easily the most sophisticated and satisfying to drive.
Or maybe this 2016 Dodge Challenger SXT will make you catch everyone’s attention!
The current Challenger has been in production since the 2008 model year and, even at age 12, this muscle car looks stunning. It’s offered in a dizzying number of variations. The newer models of two-door Challenger and four-door Charger share most of their basic structure and suspension design.
If a Charger is what tickles you, here’s this Certified Pre-owned 2015 Dodge Charger SXT, ready for you to drive home today!

March was a fantastic month in sales, here at Orlando Preowned. We brought a greater inventory and buyers found multiple options of certified pre-owned units to cater their specific needs. Whether to work hard on a high powered pickup truck, the best of performance in a beautiful Dodge Charger or Chevrolet Camaro or the luxury of a great looking BMW or Mercedes Benz, our customers left completely satisfied.

Many of our customers currently don’t own a reliable vehicle, but can’t afford to make an upgrade, others just think it is a wiser financial decision to buy used cars to avoid high interests paid at the beginning of the loan, which the natural depreciation of the unit may not allow to recover.
