WE ARE UP & RUNNING!!!

WELCOME BACK everyone from a very cold and wintry Holiday week!  Now that the Holiday rush is over, and instead of playing outside with our new toys and gadgets, we're busy trying to free ourselves and each other from the mounds of snow and ice we have received!  Well, some of us were wishing for a white Christmas and boy did we get one! 

We want to remind anyone who missed our blog yesterday that we are OPEN TODAY, Tuesday December 28th and WILL BE HERE ALL DAY, closing around 6:30pm.  We will be running at our normal showroom hours Wednesday and Thursday from 10am-6:30pm but will be closing a little earlier on Friday, New Year's Eve at 5:00pm.  We will be CLOSED FOR BUSINESS ON NEW YEAR'S DAY but will re-open at our regular scheduled hours on Monday, January 3, 2011! 

For more safety tips from Franck Freon during this Winter Season, click this link and view yesterday's blog which had some great maintenance tips for ensuring your vehicle's health & operating status while enduring the winter wonderland.  DRIVE SAFE & remember to be PATIENT & KIND to those who are out on the roads today!

A Christmas White Out!


All those that were lucky enough to get a new snow blower for Christmas, raise your hands!  I'm sure it has since been put to great use.  Here at Pumpkin Cars we just wanted to remind everyone, while you are digging out and cleaning off your cars, please make sure not to turn on your windshield wipers until they are totally thawed out and your windshield is completely clean to avoid surely burning out your wiper motor.  Also avoid trying to roll down your power windows until the car is totally warm and all ice is melted away to make sure you do not burn out a window regulator!  These are two very simple, yet very overlooked tips on freeing your car from a lot of snow and ice.
Also, just a quick note on our schedule this week.  Today, Monday the 27th, we are closed and are attempting to dig ourselves out from 20+ inches of snow as I'm sure most of you are as well.  We will be open regular hours tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday.  New Years Eve, Friday, we will be closing a little early, at 5pm and will be closed New Years Day.  Starting Monday January 3rd we will be back to our regular hours for the foreseeable future.

We Wish You A Merry Christmas


What a great time of year!  Everyone, although admittedly stressed, just seems to be happier and more pleasant.  This is certainly the time of year for most where we look forward to spending time with family and enjoying the wonders of Christmas, no matter how old you are.  Try...just try, not have your face light up when you see an impressive Christmas tree, or a house lit up like that of Clark W. Griswold.  It's called "The Christmas Spirit" and it is a very powerful feeling that can even lighten the mood of characters as sour as Scrooge and the Grinch!  

All of us here at Pumpkin Fine Cars would like to wish all of our great customers, friends, vendors and colleagues a very Merry Christmas!  Enjoy these few days with familyand friends. Enjoy the The Christmas Spirit that abounds this time of year.  Make new memories and be sure to tell those stories of past holidays that everyone always enjoys hearing year after year.  Welcome new family members into your Christmas traditions and join in with happiness and enthusiasm if you are the new family member!  Quite simply, if you have not already, get into the Christmas Spirit!  We had a visit from Santa, Mrs. Claus and an Elf here at the showroom yesterday and it quickly lightened everyone's mood and got us in the Spirit.  Just one example of the wonder that Christmas brings!  So please, from the Pumpkin Cars family to yours, enjoy a safe, happy and healthy Christmas and begin to look forward to a great New Year in 2011!  As always, if you are traveling over the weekend please take your time, drive very safely and cautiously and never never never drink and drive!  Merry Christmas to all and to all a great night!

Sincerely,
The Pumpkin Cars Family
Franck, Gina and the Freon Kids, Greg, Amanda, Joe and Hector

Cold Morning Car Tips from Franck Freon

We have some great cold morning car tips here written by the man himself, Franck Freon, owner of Pumpkin Fine Cars.  Pay extra close attention because Franck has forgotten more about cars than most of us will ever know!  These are tips on how to preserve the life of your car and to save you plenty of hard earned money (which you can then use to buy a Pumpkin Car!). They really are simple, common sense tips that most of us just do not do: 

Before we even start our vehicles, cold winter temperatures could already cost us money and time! For those who still use their key to unlock their door, be careful. Cold temperatures could freeze the key cylinder and by trying to turn your key with too much force you will break it. If there is too much resistance, use some ice-breaking spray or some hot water. Now that you are ready to open the door you may find out that it's stuck to the frame. A progressive pull should do it. A strong one could break the door handle. Again use some hot water if the door does not give.
Great, you are now inside your car. If the windshield is frozen DO NOT use the wipers. They are most likely frozen onto the windshield and by turning them on you WILL BREAK the wiper mechanism. Make sure the wiper lever is on the OFF position, also make sure all the electrical items are OFF (radio, headlights, fan, etc...) in order to conserve your battery's energy and start the car. Then be brave and get back outside to scrape the windshield! When the windshield is clear, gently lift the wipers to set them free. Running them on an icy windshield will instantly damage their rubber edge and you would have to replace them for safety right away. You deserve now to get back in your car but please DO NOT TRY to roll down a window. That's a guaranteed $300 to $500 damage since the window is most likely frozen to its rubber frame. By pushing on that electrical switch you would blow the window regulator up in a fraction of a second....please don't even try, it will break for sure. I do not think it's necessary to mention that the sun-roof and moon-roof are out of the question as well. They are frozen and you will blow up their mechanism.
If a side mirror or a window is not clear and therefore driving your vehicle would be dangerous, get back out and finish cleaning the ice or snow. Driving a vehicle with a blind spot(s) is the last thing you want to do. When the car has been running for a minute and all the windows/windshield/mirrors are clean, you are ready to go. Turn on your lights and heating fan, shift into "D" and again give it a couple of seconds before pressing the accelerator. This will give your transmission enough time to command everything properly despite the very cold temperature of its oil. The first mile or two are critical. Be gentle to the car. Nothing between the engine and the gearbox are at operating temperature. It's like running a mile straight out of bed....in the cold! Feel for your car, give it some love, it will reward you in the long run. Be safe and drive smart.

Swing by our unique indoor showroom located on Fire Road, right next to our friends at Darrell's Auto Repair in Egg Harbor Township.

Pumpkin Has Got Plenty of All Wheel Drive!!

This is being written as the first snow fall of the season is slowly covering the roads and ground.  Winter weather is very rarely considered to be "fun" driving conditions.  Very few people look forward to getting out on the roads when it is snowy, icy and the like.  While the only 100%, sure way to avoid accidents and injuries when driving in the snow is in fact to not drive at all, a lot of us do not have the luxury of staying home for that reason!  Other than being extremely cautious and paying close attention to the road conditions and other drivers around you, having a car, truck of SUV with Four Wheel or All Wheel Drive never hurts!  Right now at Pumpkin Fine Cars we are ready for another nasty winter with plenty of great pre-owned vehicles in stock that are All Wheel Drive.  Here is a quick run-down, let us know which one is perfect for you! First we have quite a few luxury sedans with all wheel drive for those that don't feel comfortable in, or want to remain a little more economical than driving an SUV. Tomorrow we will take a quick tour of the great SUV's we have in stock that offer All Wheel Drive. 




This awesome 2001 Mercedes Benz E320 4Matic with the unique and classy Dark Gray on Gray leather color combo and only 71k miles can be yours for the extremely reasonable price of $12,495! Of course a clean Car Fax comes standard with a Pumpkin Car! As always with Mercedes Benz, the luxury and performance are unmatched and this E320 is no exception.

We also have this fantastic 2003 Mercedes Benz S500 4Matic with the classic Mercedes Black on Gray leather color combination, 88k miles, and a luxury ride renowned the world over as simply the best.  Feel safe in the snow without giving up one of the smoothest rides that ever put tires on the road.  It has a clean Car Fax and is a One Owner Vehicle with tons of luxury features.  This sweet ride can be yours for only $18,495.

How about this almost brand new 2008 Mercedes Benz C300 Luxury 4matic!  With the newest body style and once again more luxury than you can ask for, this car has only 24k miles and is a Car Fax certified One Owner Car!  With All Wheel Drive the days of not being able to drive your Mercedes Benz C Class in rough weather are over.  Priced just right at $27,995, which is thousands below book value, better get it quick before someone else does.

If you prefer that other phenomenal German car manufacturer, we have an absolutely mint condition 2008 BMW 328xi.  It has a mean looking black on black color scheme and BMW's X-Drive All Wheel Drive system.  With only 35k miles, Full Factory Warranty until December of 2011 and being a Car Fax Certified One Owner Car, you cannot lose here!  Priced a few thousand below book value this is a great buy at $23,995.  Why spend in the neighborhood of $15,000 more on a brand new model, when this Beamer is just as nice and a fraction of the price!

2002 Mercedes Benz C230 Sport Coupe Kompressor



Today's Pumpkin Fine Cars, car of the day is this fun, sporty and fast 2002 Mercedes Benz C230 Sport Coupe Kompressor.  This is a pretty unique model that is not very common here in the US, and is much more prominent in Europe.  It is black with a black cloth interior, has 77k miles and is priced very reasonably at $11,495.  With a 4 cylinder 2.3 liter engine, it gets 29 miles to the gallon on the highway and 19 in the city.  You can own a luxury coupe for under $12k and without breaking the bank on gas.  Mercedes Benz introduced this car to the market to change the perception of the hatchback as an entry level car while at the same time changing the perception of the Mercedes Benz brand as being unaffordable for most buyers.  Even though it is a 4 cylinder engine, it is a light car and has plenty of "get up and go" so it is a really fun car to drive.  With the Kompressor it has a super charged 190 horse power and the steering is quick and crisp like that in the C Class Sedan.  It is a very sharp body style with a panoramic power moon roof and hatch back making it very a very rare car to see on the road.  With power windows, locks, steering and alloy wheels together with the moon roof it has some very nice features. Motortrend.com says "The C230 Kompressor Sport Coupe mixes the feel and versatility of those sporty hatchbacks with the solidity and quality of a Mercedes-at a base price well below 30 grand." So great car can be yours for less than half the price it sold for brand new!



This C230 Sport Coupe has a clean Auto Check Report, has been test driven by Franck Freon personally, is fully serviced and detailed all as part of our uncompromising Pumpkin Certification Program.  The advantage of having a former professional race car driver in Franck Freon test drive each Pumpkin Car personally is unmatched by any other dealership in South Jersey.  Through his 18 years as a professional race car driver Franck has an unrivaled expertise and feel for how a car is performing compared to how it should perform.  This is just part of the of what makes Pumpkin Cars so great.  The car is also prepared at a top notch level and we take great joy in putting high quality pre-owned vehicles out on the road.  If you are interested in this or any one of our pristine Pumpkin Fine Cars in our inventory, swing by our unique indoor showroom to take it out for a spin, just to make sure you love it!

Where in the World is Pumpkin Cars???

Pumpkin Fine Cars, a hidden treasure of Egg Harbor Township is how this should begin...it is true that our dealership has a bit of an aire of exclusivity, a feeling of being part of a VIP club if you will.  Trust us when we say that it is not done on purpose, by any means. It is the simple fact that a lot of people do not know where to find us.  Even though we've been in the same location for almost 10 years, many people do not know that we exist, or where we exist, per se.  We are not just talking about customers that find us online and come from all over the Mid Atlantic region either, we are talking about customers in Atlantic County, our home field.  The customers that find us from outside of the immediate geographic area tend to research how to find us if they know they will be traveling a distance, as most consumers would for any destination.  They find us on Google Maps (see us there)Yahoo! Local (see us there too) and they use their GPS devices in the car to guide them directly to us.  The number one question that we get from first time visitors to our unique indoor showroom that do come from our home turf is, "How long have you guys been here?", number two is, "How does anyone ever find you?".  We kindly explain how long we have been at our location and that yes, sometimes, even when you are looking for our showroom it is not always easy to find exactly where we are located.  Almost 100% of the time the response of the customer is something to the effect of, "I've lived in this area all my life and drive right past your complex five times a day and never would have known there was a car dealership there." 
We do our best to provide detailed directions on our website, and even videos of how to find us by filming an actual drive into our location.  We often explain that we are located in, "the brown brick office complex, next to Darrell's Auto Repair, on Fire Road between Delilah Road and California Avenue".  That will get you to our general vicinity, but sometimes that is not enough.  You also have to know that once you get into the brown brick office complex you still have to keep a keen eye out for Unit B7, our office and showroom.  Once you do find us, however, we guarantee you will not forget how you got here and what you saw while you were here!  As a matter of fact, be careful, because we find once you pay one visit to Pumpkin Fine Cars, you will likely make it a regular habit as a lot of our customers and friends do.  There is something about the atmosphere and certainly something about the inventory that keep people coming back even if they have little to no interest in immediately shopping for a car.  We invite any and all that want to swing by, talk cars with Franck Freon and his friendly, professional staff, browse the showroom inventory or even take a test drive or two to come by and you will not be sorry that you did.  Before that, however, you have to find us first...
As always Pumpkin Cars can be reached over the phone at 609-646-7676 and via email at [email protected] .  You can find and "Like" Pumpkin Fine Cars on Facebook, follow the tweets of @PumpkinCars on Twitter, see videos of our inventory (as well as video directions to the showroom!) on YouTube and if you enjoyed what you have just read, please subscribe to our blog.

If you are looking for a very solid, reliable car that looks and performs like a Mercedes Benz should, then don't wait too long this one is for you! 
Next we also have a car that is known for being sporty but strong.  A 1999 Lexus ES300 that is Champagne on Tan leather as well.  It has only 73k miles and is priced great at $8,995 also with a clean Auto Check Report.  Lexus is a brand that has been renowned for it's combination of luxury, performance and also reliability.  This car has plenty of great options and upgrades.  It has a 6 Disc CD Changer, Power/Heated Seats, Auto Dim Rear View Mirror, Alloy Wheels and More.  Again, it has passed through our Pumpkin Certified Program and Franck Freon has put his stamp of approval on it!  This is certainly plenty of car for $8,995!  One test drive and you will see that you don't have to drop big bucks to get a top of the line car that will last for years!  Swing by our unique indoor showroom right on Fire Road in EHT to drive either one of these beauties and find a great value at Pumpkin Fine Cars.
