Welcome to the Heiser Automotive Group and my official blog. My name is Mary Ann Scaffidi, and I am very excited to have the opportunity to write to our automotive fans throughout Southeastern Wisconsin. Here at Heiser Automotive Group as well as the automotive industry, a lot of new and exciting things are occurring. Through this blog I would like to discuss these current events. Also, I invite you to post replies to what I write on my blog as well as any questions you have about the automotive industry. This blog is for you, so please join in the conversation.
What a great holiday weekend it was! Memorial Day weekends in Wisconsin cannot get much better than this last one. It was a great time to take a cruise in the car with the windows down and spend time with family. I enjoyed doing both. Another great past time that occurred this weekend was going to the Brewers' game. I know on Sunday our Business Development Center here at Heiser Automotive Group went together for an office tailgating experience. Our staff here at Heiser is quite close and tends to go do things together a lot. I hope some of you were able to go enjoy the nice weather at Miller Park, despite their lose to the New York Mets on Sunday. However that is what is great about Wisconsin; win or lose, Wisconsin sports fans are always there for their home team.
In automotive news, I recently read some more about the much anticipated 2011 Ford Fiesta. This vehicle is going to be a great asset to the Ford line-up and all of us at Heiser are looking forward to its arrival. In fact, according to our Ford salespeople we have had people order them already at both our Heiser Ford Lincoln Mercury and Heiser Northpoint Ford locations.
The article that I recently read was on Kelley Blue Book's website under reviews. It discussed how the Ford Fiesta was named number one on the top 10 coolest cars under $18,000. The criteria they used to decide the subjective “cool factor” included: safety, fuel economy, interior size, comfort, and technology as well as the twin factors of fun-to-drive and fun-to-own. Here is the link to the article: Ford Fiesta and Kelley Blue Book.
Well that is it for today. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and I look forward to hearing from you.
