Welcome to fall…..sort of!

9-28-21  If you like heat, then you liked our summer weather and you’re enjoying the mild weather this fall.  The warm days are wonderful but the cool evenings are a harbinger of what’s to come:  cold and snow.  There is nothing we can do to stop the cold and snow from coming but we can certainly do our best to prepare for it.  We have remote starters in stock and ready to be installed.  Come early before the snow flies and you’ll be all set for the winter months ahead.  Call us at 952-933-3575.


Happy Independence Day!

6-30-21  It’s been quite a summer so far!  The heat and humidity have been quite a change from the cold, gray winter.  If you’re having trouble staying cool you might want to consider a remote car starter.  With the tap of a button you can have your car cooling before you get in.  No more hot leather seats and steering wheel.  Whether you want to start your car with a remote or with your smart phone, we can help!  Call now to make an appointment and Happy 4th of July!

Ready for Summer!

5-5-21  As you may know, there has been a spike in catalytic converter thefts all over the country and Minnesota is no exception.  There have been many thefts right here in Hopkins, MN.  For that reason, we have begun offering a new product called CatClamp®.

The CatClamp® was invented to prevent thieves from stealing your catalytic converter. It’s exclusive, award-winning, patented cable cage design surrounds the catalytic converter with aircraft-grade wire rope that is very difficult to cut, even with power tools.  The same wire rope locks the converter to the chassis of the vehicle up to seven times, creating too much work for a thief in a hurry.  The CatClamp® attaches to the exhaust pipes, not the converter, allowing all size and shape converters to be protected.  Installation of this product is just $349.50.  Please contact us now to set up your appointment or if you’d like more information.

Hello Spring!

2-26-21  It’s been a long winter but we are starting to see signs of Spring with warmer weather and brighter days.  As we look towards the summer we start thinking of road trips and weekend getaways.  We have lots of ways to make your trips more enjoyable.  Maybe you need a handsfree bluetooth device and MP3 system or maybe you’d like to upgrade your navigation system.  Either way, we can help!  What about video systems for the kids?  Yes, we do that too!  Please contact us if you have an idea for making your ride more comfortable.  Chances are we have a solution that can fulfill your needs.  Wherever your travels take you we wish you good health, good weather, good roads and good times!

Good Bye 2020!

12-31-20  Hello 2021!  We are all ready for a change and the New Year is a great way to set new goals.  While 2020 was hugely challenging, the New Year looks bright and there’s no question that better times are ahead.  The recent cold and snow reminds us all of the value of remote car starters.  In fact, local police personnel are actually promoting remote car starters for us.  They’ve had a large number of vehicles stolen while owners have left their cars running to warm them up.  We don’t want that to happen to you so please give us a call and we will get you taken care of.  Happy New Year to all!

We are thankful for you!

12-2-20  It’s been a difficult year for all of us but hope appears to be right around the corner.  Through it all, we are grateful for our AMAZING employees and GREAT customers.  We are here to help whenever you need us.  The weather was mild for November but the skies were gray.  The mild temps have continued into the first few days of December but it’s been a real treat to see the sunshine.  However, there’s still frost on the cars and scraping windows is never fun.  We can solve that problem by installing a remote car starter.  Just give us a call.  And, remember, we have gift certificates for all your holiday shopping needs.

Fall is in the air!

9-30-20  It’s hard to believe that summer has come and gone.  The wonderful summer weather was a welcome gift considering everything else that is happening in our world.  Now we go into winter and look forward to the holidays and just keep hoping for the best.  Getting our vehicles winter ready is key to surviving the cold.  We can help winterize your car whether you need an oil change, tire rotation or general tune up or if you need heated seats or a remote car starter.  We are here to help and are doing everything possible to maintain the health and safety of our employees and customers.  Life can be challenging right now.  We just need to hang in there.  Stay strong Minnesota!

The weather has cooled….

7-31-20  The dog days of summer seem to have passed.  The low humidity and cool nights are refreshing but they also get us thinking of winter and how it will soon be knocking at our door.  We are preparing for the cold by reviewing our line up of remote car starters and heated seats.  It’s always a bit daunting to think of winter when we’re still dreaming of summer but we do look forward to be taking care of all your needs during this season and the upcoming winter season.  Let’s hope there are lots of good weather days still ahead of us!

Summer is here!

6-30-20  There is no question that we are living in unprecedented times.  We have learned more medical terms and watched more news programs than we ever wanted to.  That being said, we’ve also found ways to stay busy and enjoy the great outdoors.  Through it all, we are grateful to be able to serve all of your automotive needs.  If you are sweltering in this summer heat wave you may want to consider a remote car starter that can be used to cool your car in the summer and heat your car in the winter.  Whatever your needs are, we are here for you!  Stay safe and call us for all your automotive needs.

We are here for you!

4-14-20  As Covid-19 continues to impact all of our lives we want you to know we are here to help you.  As an Essential and Necessary business we are here to look after your automotive needs.  Whether you work in food service or healthcare, we want to make sure your vehicle is running properly and can get you where you need to be.  We are taking every measure possible to protect our employees and customers.  Vehicles are cleaned and sanitized when we work on them and we are limiting physical contact with customers by picking up and delivering vehicles and taking payments by phone.  Please call us if you have an automotive need and we will work with you to determine the best way to get your car serviced.  These are unprecedented times but we are committed to serving our customers and getting through this together.  We wish you all well!

Where’s the sun?

1-31-20  It’s been a LONG January and I think the lack of sun is affecting all of us.  We are definitely getting a bit stir crazy!  The cold, dreary weather has kept up busy installing remote car starters and heated seats.  We are grateful for the business but a little sunshine would be nice!  We can only hope that February is brighter than January.  Happy 2020!

Happy New Year!

12-31-19  It’s been another fantastic year at Dealer Automotive Services and we want to take this opportunity to say “Thank You” to all our suppliers and customers.  We would not be who we are without all of you.  We truly appreciate you and wish you nothing but the best in 2020.  Happy New Year to you and yours!

Happy Thanksgiving!

11-30-19  Another month has come and gone and only 1 month left in the year.  Hard to believe.  At this time of Thanksgiving, we’d like to take a moment to recognize how grateful we are for our customers and staff.  We are fortunate to have a great customer base and a staff of long term employees that we are very proud of.  We are truly thankful for each and every one of you!  Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!

Remote Starters, Heated Seats, Bluetooth and more!

10-31-19  It’s spooky to think that tomorrow is November already.  Christmas trees and decorations are already up at most stores and turkey specials are everywhere.  However, we have to get through Halloween first and we hope you have a wonderful day full of treats and no tricks.  If you’re looking for a real treat, we have remote car starters, heated seats, bluetooth devices and much more.  Happy Halloween to all!

The new remote start line up is here!

10-1-19  We are working now to update our website with all the new remote start information for the coming winter season.  As a Compustar dealer, we are pleased with the new line up being offered by Compustar.  The new units are even more technology based and SmartPhone systems are more and more affordable and sophisticated.  Stay tuned for updated pricing and unit details.  Hello Fall!

New product line up coming soon!

8-30-19  Our manufacturers have rolled out some great new product changes and we’re looking forward to introducing you to them in the coming weeks.  Needless to say, innovation is key in the electronics industry and that applies to remote starters as well.  You can expect to see even more smart phone integration and high end features with the new remote start line up.  Stay tuned for all the news as it happens!

Hands free calling law goes into effect today

8-1-19  The new Minnesota hands free phone law goes into effect today.  That means no more holding your cell phone while driving your car.  For many people this will be a hard habit to break.  However, there are many products designed to solve this problem and we can help find the right product for you.  No need for costly tickets.  Call us now to discuss your options.

Summer remote start and BlueTooth

6-5-19  It’s been busy here with summer finally arriving and the new BlueTooth law going into effect on August 1st.  The warmer temperatures are reminding people that a remote starter is great for the summer as well as the winter.  The new BlueTooth law requires cell phone calls to be made hands free while in your car.  Our BlueTooth devices fully integrate your phone into your existing audio system and allow hands free driving.

Whether you’re looking for a remote starter or a BlueTooth device, we are here to help!  Give us a call:  952-933-3575.

Do you have a BlueTooth device in your car?

5-1-19  April was quite a fickle month.  It started out warm and spring like and ended up cold, snowy and dreary.  I guess it’s good weather to take advantage of having a remote car starter but even we are tired of snow and rain.  Regardless, we are still busy gearing up for the summer months ahead.  We expect to be busy installing BlueTooth Hands Free phone systems due to the recent law changes here in Minnesota.  If you haven’t heard, as of August 1st, it will be illegal to talk on the phone while in your car if you have to hold the phone in your hand.  Call us if you want to avoid a costly ticket and we will give you a quote on installing a hands free phone device.

Happy Spring!

3-29-19  Hard to believe that just 3 weeks ago we were dealing with more snow and wondering where to put it.  As we know, Minnesota weather can change quickly and the nice weather has been wonderful.  We are still installing remote starters each day and the new legislation being tossed around for the State of Minnesota has renewed interest in Bluetooth phone technology.  Call us if you need help with Bluetooth connectivity and we can go over the best options for you.  Happy Spring!
