Ford Diversity-We Salute!

Here at Ford, we are proud to share with you an awesome article about our Ford’s Supplier Diversity Development (SDD) program which is celebrating its 35th year.

Developing strong, long lasting and successful relationships with diverse suppliers that are minority, womrn and veteran owned has been a priority of ours for years. Thousands of hard working individuals have allowed Ford to become the brand that is it today, and this is just one way to give back to suppliers who have made invaluable contributions to the success and profitability of the Ford Motor Company.  Ford provides resources to entrepreneurs in the minority, women and veteran category, empowering them to start their own businesses.

With Memorial Day quickly approaching, we would like to reiterate our support of Veterans and members of the US Service around the country.  As a Ford dealership in Hawaii where there is a strong military presence, we are constantly reminded of the sacrifices made by the men and women who serve this country, and will continue to support them in any way that we can.  THANK YOU for what you do, from Cutter Ford.

4 Reasons To Visit Your Auto Dealership in the Near Future (Especially in Hawaii!)

Image

1)   Gas Prices: While there is still mixed speculation on where gas prices will head this Summer, most experts point to the fact that they will probably not be going down (dramatically at least).  So with gas prices still on the rise, its time to start considering a more fuel-efficient vehicle!  Fuel-efficient vehicles are affordable, becoming more readily available-and are the way of the future! Find out more about fuel-efficient vehicles in Hawaii.

2)   Cars are Getting Old: Research is showing that more cars are in need of replacing than any other point in recent history. This has a lot to do with economic factors that have deterred people from buying new cars in past years, and because of that the current average age of cars sitting in garages and driveways around the country is over 11.  The inevitability of replacing our old, loyal cars and trucks is upon us-its time for change.

3)   Help Hawaii’s Green Initiative: Currently, Hawaii is toward, but not AT the top of the greenest states in the US.  And while there is a lot to be proud of being toward the top of the list, who doesn’t want to be #1?!  Buying and driving a hybrid or fuel-efficient car or truck is a great way to make a major contribution to environmental initiatives on an individual level.  Help keep Hawaii green & beautiful, and breathe a little easier for 2 reasons: you will feel good about your efforts, and the air will stay a little cleaner!

4)   Reason to Take a Road Trip: As if you needed another reason to buy a new vehicle this Spring or Summer, a road trip to look forward to is the cherry on top.  Hawaii is the most scenic state in the country, and one of the most scenic destinations in the world.  With so many amazing weekend (or longer) trips throughout the Islands, you don’t want you car preventing you from enjoying! Make sure you have a car that will keep up with you and keep every mile as affordable as possible. Take a look at the best road trips in Hawaii-and get to planning (in your new car!)

Timing Is Everything

We’ve always been told that timing is everything, and this still applies when we are talking about auto repair for your Ford.  Of course there are some repair and maintenance jobs that do not need to be at the top of your urgency list when you are deciding what you can and can’t afford to fix right now.  But there are also some repairs, that will end up costing you much more if you put them off.  With new years resolutions quickly approaching, here is some advice about repairs you will not want to procrastinate-either for the serious safety implications of ignoring them, or the additional costs that you can incur by putting them off.  For further questions about any of these repair and maintenance issues, or another issue your Ford car or truck may be having, contact your Ford dealership in Honolulu today.

Ford Takes the Future Seriously!

At Cutter Ford we are excited about what’s going on at Ford right now, and even more excited about the direction we are heading in early 2013.  As a brand we have been consistently dedicated to the most advanced technology in electric and hybrid vehicles, and as a dealership we have been consistently dedicated to bringing this inventory to our local people of Hawaii.  We are thrilled and proud to share some of the awards, upcoming releases and other highlights thus far along the road of delivering fuel efficient and Eco-friendly options to consumers!
