The beginning of fall is a colorful time of year for us in Michigan. A cascade of color falls over our trees and foliage while a different palate of reds, yellows, greens, golds and amber falls upon our markets and weekend trips. Yes we are talking about baskets, bushels, buckets and barrels of apples! See our quick list below of 9 cider mills that are sure to help you get your cider fix.
The sweet nectar of Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Gala and Honey Crisp apples awaits!!
WARREN, Mich. ? In December, the sprawling, four million-square-foot factory here where workers assemble Ram pickup trucks, along conveyors that weave for more than 30 miles, suddenly went quiet.
Thousands of workers looked on where a makeshift stage, draped in black, had been assembled. Sergio Marchionne, Chrysler Group?s chairman and chief executive, stepped up to address the crowd.
In the dark days of Chrysler?s bankruptcy ? when the company barely escaped extinction thanks to a taxpayer bailout and the purchase by Mr. Marchionne?s Fiat of a major stake, which later turned into ownership ? such a staged display and work…
With the 2015s coming, and in some cases already here, Chrysler is slapping major rebates onto some 2014s.
The 2014 Chrysler 300, for example, comes with $3,250-$5,000 cash back, as dealers hasten to clear their lots and make room for the 2015s, due in three months. Town & Country minivans are running $1,000-$3,500 rebates, and Caravans at $500-$2,000, but this may simply be a way to keep Sienna and Odyssey from regaining the sales lead. 2015 minivans will also have rebates, albeit smaller ones (up to $1,500).
1. Letting your child use a regular seat belt too soon.
Why it?s unsafe: Seat belts are designed for an adult and can cause seriously injuries if they don?t fit properly.
What AAA recommends: Use a booster seat until the adult seat belt fits properly with the lap portion of the belt fitting low across the child?s hips and the shoulder belt across their sternum and collar bone. Proper belt fit may not be possible in some cases until age 12 or 13.
2. Allowing children to place the seat belt under their arm or behind their…
When trying to decide which restaurant to eat at or which new TV to buy, the best reviews tend to come from people who have actually been there or experienced it. Sometimes it boils down to one simple question, would you buy it again?
Feedback is in from owners of the Chrysler Town & County, and it ranked highest among minivans for the third time in four years in the J.D. Power 2014 U.S. Initial Quality Study (IQS).
The IQS is based on responses from more than 86,000 owners of 2014 model-year vehicles after 90 days of ownership…

Here are some safety tips to prepare for rising water?and what to do once a flood has begun.
Before a Flood
Avoid building in a floodplain. Construct barriers (levees, beams, floodwalls) to stop floodwater from entering your home. Seal walls in basements with waterproofing compounds to avoid seepage. If a flood is likely in your area, listen to the radio or television for information. Know the difference between a flood watch and a flood warning. A watch means flooding is possible. A warning meansflooding is occurring or will occur soon.
Ram has confirmed that the Ram 3500 pickup still has a 30,000-pound towing capacity when tested under SAE?s J2807 standards.
Ford, which has, until now, avoided the SAE standard, is now saying that its claim of 31,200 pounds for the F-450 pickup also meets the standard, even when the 150 pounds of ?customer-deletable? items, like the spare tire, jack and center console, are added back in.
This answers questions about towing capacities but fails to answer the question of who is best in Class 3 towing, because the F-450?s credentials as a direct competitor to the…

The new sticker is $15,000 less than the 2014 model and is about the same as the original 1992 price of $50,700, adjusted for inflation.
The new Viper has 645 horsepower and gets up to 20 miles per gallon. Deliveries will begin in the first quarter of 2015.
In addition to lower pricing on the 2015 Viper, prices on all Vipers in dealer inventory have been discounted by…
