This week, the average age of cars on the road right now is almost 11 years old. People are keeping there cars longer and that really puts an emphasis on maintaining your car as best as possible. And being able to show those maintenance records when you go to sell your vehicle can greatly increase your chances of selling your vehicle faster.

Welcome to the "Producer's Corner" where you'll find news and notes from Morning Show Producer Scott Fitzgerald.
It’s a new year and a popular resolution for many is to improve their financial situation. “Now is a great time to take stock of your financial well-being” says Navy Federal Credit Union President and CEO Cutler Dawson. For three years now I’ve been endorsing Navy Federal Credit Union. I put my name behind Navy Federal because I’ve been a member for 15 years.
For nearly 80 years Navy Federal has been serving the military with programs and services tailored to the military lifestyle and not offered to those outside the armed forces. Some of those services include (but aren’t limited to) outstanding free checking accounts and interest rates on auto loans and mortgages. Last year we were a pre-approved for a 2.99% auto loan for our new SUV.
2013 is a good time to map out a smart money strategy that doesn’t involve unnecessary fees and expenses other banks charge their members. For example Navy Federal’s active duty checking account is free and members can earn dividends as well as receive up to $20 in free ATM rebates each month. I don’t know about you, but if I found a $20 bill on the ground at the end of each month, I sure wouldn’t pass it up.
If you (or a family member) is currently serving in the military (even you DoD Contractors) I encourage you to visit navyfederal.org and see for yourself.
Navy Federal is financially solid and federally insured by the NCUA.

- It was one week ago today that Superstorm Sandy made landfall near Atlantic City, New Jersey. The hardest hit areas, in New Jersey and New York, are still trying to get back to normal. Food, shelter and gasoline remain in short supply and now there are concerns about dwindling supplies of home heating oil. Tonight's temperature in New York City is forecast to drop to 33 degrees. One encouraging sign is that most schools will open in New York City today for the first time since the storm struck. With Tony is CBS News' Heather Bosch in New York on the cleanup from Superstorm Sandy.
-The trial of computer expert Claudio Sciarpelletti in connection with the theft of sensitive documents from the Vatican begins today. The trial could help shed light on whether Pope Benedict's former butler acted alone in leaking documents or was part of a broader conspiracy. CBS News' Sabina Castelfranco is in Rome on the Claudio Sciarpelletti trial.
