Today we bring you another edition of the Brandl Media Minute. Follow along with yours truly as I break down how to lower and remove your spare tire on your Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country. A few weeks back I showed you how to lower the spare, today we are focusing on how to lower your spare with the Super Console. The Super Console is a new center console that can be found on newer Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Countrys. It connects to the dash, eliminating the space in between the console and dash, which is where you pop the cap to access the crank to drop the spare.

Stay tuned because we will be doing more Brandl Media Minute Videos explaining more of the great things these radios and vehicles can do! If you have any questions about how to operate your Keyless Enter and Go Passive Entry system, as well as your Uconnect or Media Center radio, or have suggestions on other topics we should cover, send me an email at LT@BrandlMotors.com

Advanced technology allows the driver to unlock doors when pulling a door handle, thanks to Keyless Enter-N-Go. Upon entry, easily start the vehicle with a press of the engine start / stop button and brake pedal.

And that’s not all they can do! There’s also some other cool features that you’ll have to watch the video to see, like how to pop your trunk with your keys still in your pocket!

The 2011 Chrysler 300 combines a legendary confidence with a new bent on tailoring: as each trim level is designed to speak to a specific band of consumer. The one common thread that runs through this diverse demographic: this is not a car for those simply born to privilege. This is a car that speaks to a hard-working and humble audience – a group which knows where they’re going but, haven’t forgotten where they came from.

“The individuals in these commercials represent more than success stories. They represent a brand of determination that Detroit has come to stand for. These are true stories of people who worked hard and are now able to enjoy the luxury they deserve; and luxury feels better earned. These three individuals define the target customer for the all-new 2011 Chrysler 300.”
