The All New 2014 Cadillac CTS has just landed at Morrie’s Cadillac! Be the first to come test drive the completely redesigned CTS! In this video, Morrie’s Cadillac General Manager, Pat Kyes, gives you a brief look at this hot new sedan. Don’t wait, call us at 763-449-4000 or stop by to check out the hottest new model in the Cadillac lineup!
Our General Manager here at Morrie’s 394 Hyundai was just recently given the opportunity to travel to South Korea to tour the Hyundai Ulsan Plant. The Plant has a production capacity of around 1.6 million units per year so you can imagine there is a lot of ground to cover on a plant tour. The plant is comprised of five independent plant facilities which span 5,000,000 square meters. The plant tour is open to the public but, on this special occasion it was only targeted at general managers and owners of Hyundai dealers from the U.S.
Aaron Velick the General Manger here at Morrie’s 394 Hyundai was also given time to see the unique sites of the city and experience a completely different culture. Being able to tour some historic sites of South Korea and being caught up in the big city had to have been very exciting. A few sites from home like a McDonalds or Hooters, or the small street vendors selling a sorts of afternoon snacks can be quite the thing to see and experience. Also the vehicles themselves can be quite different from what we are able to get here in the States.
The Korean spec vehicles are sometimes a bit different like for example the Sonata Wagon (known as i40 in Korea pictured in white below) which can be a welcomed refresher.
Another great example of style and culture would be the Grandeur Art vehicle which is very similar to the Azera model that we have here. (pictured below)
A little bit of Korean barbecue and Korean hospitality was what really made for a great trip. (Picture of Korean barbecue below) All the U.S. Hyundai support dealer staff was on site and were very kind and generous, bringing a lot of fun to hear a different aspect for a completely different market. Also sharing the food and company of a different culture is a great way to make friends for years to come.
The first Saturday of the month fell upon us again this weekend and that meant it was time for another busy day at the Automotorplex in Chanhassen. We experienced a gorgeous sunny summer day and the turnout for the event was incredible. The Automotorplex filled up quickly with over 1,000 cars and 5,000 attendees, making it the best turnout the event has ever seen!
There were an assortment of different cars that made it out on Saturday. From classics to hot new exotics, there was never a dull moment. We are so proud to be able to help out with such an exciting and fun event and each month we look forward to what the first Saturday will bring. Make sure to stop out for the last few events of the season in September and October and make sure you find the Morrie’s tent for a free cup of coffee and pair of Buy Happy sunglasses! For more information on the event head over to the official website for MN C&C. http://www.mncandc.com/

If you haven’t already heard the news, our Twin Cities Luxury Auto store has changed their name to Morrie’s Luxury Auto. Rest assured, we’re still the same place with the same great cars and people you’ve come to know and trust.

Spring is a time for wonderful fresh smells, budding trees, flowers blooming, snow melting and deep cleaning. There is nothing better than being able to crack open the windows to let the cool spring smells replenish the stale winter air. Many people are inspired to do their spring cleaning with this season change, however we often neglect our vehicle as part of the spring cleaning process. The winter season can wreak havoc on our vehicles with all the snow, sand, salt and mud that gets tracked in and out.
General consensus shows that most people do not want to stand outside in the freezing winter months to vacuum out their vehicle. Car washes are always busiest on that first warm day of the season. You wait though, because there is nothing better than seeing your car free of the wintery mix of sand, salt and snow. Not everyone has access to commercial grade cleaning tools like we do here at Morrie’s, so we asked around for some tips and tricks people have learned over time on how to make cleaning your vehicle easy and convenient using everyday household items. Remember cleaning your vehicle may seem like a never ending chore, but it will help to protect the finish, prevent rust, and add to the resale value. A clean car is a happy car.
1. Using a toothpick and or cotton swab can help to remove dirt and grime from cup holders and around counsel shifters.
2. A cotton swab also works well to clean out heat vents.
3. Some people have air compressors at home. These can come in handy when cleaning your vehicle. You can use it to loosen up sand embedded deep down in the carpet for easy vacuuming. If you don’t have one, just use your hand in a flat motion to tap the carpet. You will see the sand popping up. Sprinkle some baby power on the carpet before vacuuming for a fresh smell.
4. Vinegar can be used to clean windows and chrome. Mix equal parts of white vinegar and water in to a spray bottle. Don’t forget the old trick using newspapers to wipe windows for that streak free shine. Vinegar can also be used for cleaning dashboards and steering columns.
5. Baking Soda can be used for cleaning tires. Add water to the baking soda to form a paste. Wet the tire and use a hard bristle brush to clean the tire with the baking soda. Let sit for a few minutes and rinse clean.
6. Use a brown paper bag or plastic sack from the grocery store to put excess garbage in. You can also use a few extra to put loose clothing in and one for things you need to take back in the house like, extra pens, travel mugs, change, ice scrapers, mail, sunglasses, etc.
7. To clean interior upholstery, pour a cup of baking soda into a bowl, and stir in white vinegar until a smooth paste is formed. Apply to the upholstery or carpet stain, and scrub in with a soft bristled brush. Let the paste dry, then vacuum to collect any baking soda residue. For tough and built-in stains, repeat this process as necessary.
8. For the exterior of your vehicle, add 10 drops of dishwashing liquid into a bucket, and then add warm water to form suds. The dishwashing liquid serves as a de-greasing agent to break up dirt and debris without leaving a greasy film behind.
We hope these tips come in handy when you decide to deep clean your vehicle this spring. And remember, you can also stop by any Morrie’s location for a car wash!
