The leaves are quickly changing colors, attracting families from both out of town and out of state. It is important to drive a vehicle that is not only attractive but fuel-efficient, spacious, and loaded with features. Luckily, here at Quirk we offer an abundance of models across 12 brands to satisfy all of your needs. It was a tough decision but we narrowed down several options to make the most out of your road trips to your favorite fall destinations.
2022 Kia Carnival
The first vehicle on our list is the 2022 Kia Carnival. It is new for the year and has taken over the Sedona in the lineup. It is known as the Multi-Purpose Vehicle and for good reason, as it has seating for eight and features not regularly seen in a vehicle of this style. The multitude of safety features like the 360-degree Surround View Monitor, Highway Driving Assistance, and Blind-Spot Monitor will aid in making your drive more easygoing. There are simply too many features to list but they include VIP Lounge Seating that allows 2nd-row passengers to recline to a new level of comfort, Dual-Screen Rear-Seat Entertainment, and an impressive 12.3-inch touchscreen with Navigation Display.
2021 Mazda CX-5
The 2021 Mazda CX-5 has made it to number two on our list for its well-rounded value. The CX-5 has been awarded several accolades in recent years gaining credibility as Car and Driver 10Best winner four years in a row. The IIHS Top Safety+ recipient has cohesively combined comfort and performance to produce a vehicle that thrives on mountain roads. As one of Consumer Reports Recommended SUVs, there are seven trim levels available to make sure you find the right CX-5 for you. The Mazda Connected Services will allow you to find your vehicle if you happen to forget where you parked as well as monitor your vehicle’s vitals including oil levels, fuel levels, and service reminders.
2022 Chevrolet Traverse
The third and final vehicle that made our list was a tough decision but the 2022 Chevrolet Traverse has made the cut. It combines midsize convenience with third-row seating so it will accommodate your growing family. The Driver Mode Selector is designed to conquer the road ahead with options that will provide the best performance in the snow, off-road when towing/hauling, and AWD when conditions call for additional traction. The Chevrolet Traverse rounds out our list by allowing 5,000 lbs of towing capacity to bring along added fun for those weekend getaways. All of these useful options are accompanied by tech including built-in Alexa, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, 9-inch HD touch-screen, and even Spotify for your favorite tunes.

It’s that time of year again where the leaves are bursting with color and attracting people from all over. Leaf peeping is beautiful and relaxing, but it is still important to pay attention to the road and potential hazards. We can enjoy all the vibrant roadside colors while remaining safe. Let’s take a look at a few fall driving tips to ensure you have the best experience possible while on the road.
Pay extra attention to the road and obstructions that may exist. Leaves will be falling and blowing all around, so make sure you are aware of the road ahead. Leaves that coat the road can become dangerous especially when wet. When wet they can be just as dangerous as ice causing poor stopping power and maneuverability. In addition to fewer leaves providing slippery roads, they may also cause poor visibility of road markings. Use your discretion when you notice leaves are abundant because they may cover up painted lines, manhole covers, potholes, and other hazards that may damage your vehicle.
Too Much Sun
Keep an extra pair of sunglasses in the car. During the fall months, the sun is rising and setting at different times. This causes more glare on your daily commute that is not only annoying but could prove to be hazardous. Make use of those sunglasses and don’t forget your sun visor will greatly help. Less daylight means that you will be using your lights more often. Make sure all functions and bulbs are working properly to stay safe on the roadways.
Check Your Defroster
Fall is that in-between time of the year where it is warm during the day and the temperature falls at night. As fall progresses there may even be a slight frost at night. Make sure your defroster is working properly and that you have a sufficient means of removing the frost so you can safely drive. You don’t want to be that person looking through a small hole that you managed to defrost as you drive down the road. Also, make sure to get a windshield washer fluid that contains a defrosting agent. It will help greatly and save you a couple of steps.
One of the most important changes in the fall months is the increase of deer activity. As we know deer can cause a lot of damage to our vehicles so it is important to be extra cautious as it is the breeding season for deer and they will be highly active. Deer are less cautious during the breeding season and take more chances crossing roadways. Keep an eye out for deer all day but mostly during sunrise and sunset hours.

Cruising DowntownRaises Nearly $85,000 for YouthPrograms in Manchester
Manchester,NH–Car enthusiasts were delighted with hundreds of vehicles that were on display this past weekend at the 20th Anniversary Cruising Downtown car show in Manchester.
The milestone marking the the20-year anniversary was reflective for many attendees as they paid homage to Cruising Downtown’sevent co-founder founder Ronald Fournier, owner of Ron’s Toy Shop, who passed away this past February after a decade long battle with cancer.
Quirk Auto Dealers was one of the main event sponsors and had a few vehicles on display for the car show. Event organizers said that nearly $85,000 was raised to support children and youth programs in the city.
Fournier’s son Mattsaidhis father was a drag-racing enthusiast who had a deep love for automobiles and the idea for Cruising Downtown originated with an intent to bring the community together and raise money for charity.
This year being the first event without the elder Fournier, his son Matt said, “It was definitely a tough weekend, and bittersweet. It was great to see the community remember my dad and thank our family for all the hard work that goes into the annual Cruising Downtown event. Mayor Craig dedicated September 4in my dad’s memory and called it the Ronald Fournier Day. It was an honor we won’t forget.”

It’s been a busy summer for Quirk! We were pleased to be able to sponsor several events and get out there and support the communities that we care deeply about, the most recent being the Recovered Souls Charity Golf Tournament, held at the Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy, where $75,000 was raised to help people working toward addiction recovery. Take a look at the event highlights. http://ow.ly/wC3h30rS0eP
Quirk Auto Dealers is a proud sponsor of the 4th Annual Braintree Fire Department Charity Golf Tournament. This event will be held on September 17, 2021, at the Braintree Municipal Golf Course, and we hope to see you there!
The Annual Golf Tournament is a fun event that Quincy locals have enjoyed for several years, and it raises money for a few great causes. The mission of this golf tournament is to quietly raise funds to assist with the financial needs of community groups and individual families that have been affected by unforeseen circumstances.
Funds raised from the last three tournaments have gone to organizations like the Braintree Partnership on Opiate use, The Marge Crispin Center, and the Braintree Council on Elder Affairs. On top of this, city council members have worked to help allocate money to family members battling cancer.
Another goal of this tournament is to help strengthen community ties to anyone who has been impacted by circumstances beyond their control.
We are grateful to all who attend! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more or to sign up!
