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.
Thirty-seven percent of Americans spent more on insurance over the past year while only 7% spent less, according to new research published today by Bankrate.com. The remaining respondents either spent about the same (52%) or didn’t know/refused to answer (4%). Of those who spent more, 62% said their spending went up because of rising premiums. The next most popular response was because they bought a new home, car, boat or recreational vehicle (12%). The results reflect Americans’ total spending on all types of insurance (auto, homeowners, renters, health, life, etc.). “We continue to view rising expenses and stagnant wages as a key financial hurdle for American households,” said Doug Whiteman, insurance analyst, Bankrate.com. “But consumers shouldn’t accept rising insurance premiums without a fight. Compare quotes from at least three other companies, investigate all possible discounts and don’t be afraid to ask your current insurer for a discount. You may be able to get a better deal.” Tony speaks with Doug about premiums and what you can do to reduce your cost
