August 2019

After much anticipation and years of waiting, the Land Rover Defender makes its return this September. Although the Defender won’t arrive at our dealership until January 2020, you can put down a refundable deposit now to be one of the first to drive a Defender off the lot.

As we eagerly await the Defender’s September reveal, here’s what we know and what we expect to see in the all-new Defender. We know the Defender will maintain the legendary durability, versatility, and capability of its predecessors while adding a new ability to the mix: the latest technologies. We expect the Defender to include a digital gauge cluster and longitudinal touchscreen, a wide-range of driver assistive technologies, and a whole lot more. 

We know two different body styles of the new Defender have been observed—two- and four-door styles. This means there will be different wheelbases and different interior cabin spaces. We expect the Defender to make use of upscale materials and luxury features throughout the cabin.

To stay informed of all things Defender, call Cole European today. We can provide you with more information concerning launch dates, East Bay arrival dates, and more model details. And, if you want to reserve your Defender, we can certainly do that too.

Keep Your Cool

What’s worse than a broken A/C unit on a hot summer’s day? Knowing you could’ve done something about it. Here are three symptoms of a failing A/C unit:

  1. Weak, Tepid Air. If the air flow remains consistent no matter how high the A/C is turned on and the air coming out is cool at best, then your A/C unit is certainly experiencing a problem. This may be due to debris blocking a vent or a more serious problem with the compressor—the part responsible for pumping refrigerant through the system.
  2. You Hear Noises. If you hear a grinding or squealing sound when your A/C is turned on, then chances are your compressor is on its last legs. 
  3. There’s an Oil Leak. There are certain parts of the A/C system, such as the A/C evaporator, compressor, condenser, lines and fittings, that if compromised can leak refrigerant and compressor oil.

If any of these symptoms sound familiar, or if you’d rather be on the safe (cool) side, then schedule a service appointment today. All month long we’re offering 15% off A/C Service Inspections.
