Public parking can be frustrating. Drivers may not know where the best parking garage prices are, and the process of paying is inconvenient and different for every lot. The good news is that drivers of eligible Cadillac vehicles can now access public parking options in a more accessible and easy-to-use way through the Cadillac Marketplace feature.
Drivers can access the Cadillac Marketplace from the convenience of their in-vehicle touch screen. Through the Cadillac User Experience system, drivers can easily navigate to a full suite of various features and capabilities. One of these is the ParkWhiz mobile app. Drivers will be able to set up a ParkWhiz account online or through their phone. From there, accessing the app from their Cadillac is easy.
ParkWhiz allows drivers to set up a preferred method of payment and a description of their vehicle (so that no one else takes their parking spot). Users can then access details about nearby parking options, then even reserve their parking spot in advance and pay ahead of time. The whole process of parking downtown gets streamlined thanks to ParkWhiz in the Cadillac Marketplace, taking away the headache of keeping track of a parking ticket and finding available parking.
ParkWhiz is available in 250 different cities in the United States, with over 1,000 participating parking spots. Dan Roarty, COO and president of ParkWhiz parent company Arrive, cites the popularity of an app as being due to the prevalence of paid public parking in America. People spend the same amount of money on parking as they do on gas every month, on average. That makes parking a pretty big part of any driver’s life.
If you’re looking for more information on how to use ParkWhiz, all you have to do is access the app through Cadillac Marketplace, available in 2017 Cadillac models or newer.
While you could buy a used car from your neighbor, we think you will get a much better car-buying experience here at Carl Hogan Automotive. When you choose a dealership, you can customize your car shopping.
Whether a car is new or used, you have the option to add extra features to it. This can be anything from an upgraded sound system to after market wheels to extended warranty coverage. You won’t get any of these features from a private seller.
When you choose a dealership, you have a pretty good idea of what you are going to deal with. You can read online reviews to determine if a dealership has any problems. Most likely, you will find dealerships are working extra hard to deliver the best customer service experience they can.
With a private seller, the customer’s priority is to sell the car, not necessarily provide the best shopping experience for you, the buyer. Additionally, you’ll be responsible for any mechanical problems that surface after the sale.
While you can always secure your own loan, financing through a dealership can save you time and money. Dealership finance departments have access to a wide network of lenders and will work hard to find you the best loan terms they can.
It can sometimes be difficult to secure a loan for a private-party sale. Lenders are more likely to trust pricing information from a dealership. If you do get approved for a private-party sold vehicle, you might end up with a higher interest rate.
