Happy New Year, everyone! It’s hard to believe that a new year has begun. Here at Discount Auto Glass we’re looking forward to what the new year brings and maybe even keeping up with our resolutions this time. Sure, new clothes and toys are fun, but you can’t forget about your car! Your car is the biggest toy you have, right? Let’s celebrate 2016 with some new gadgets for your toy. Our Discount Auto Glass team put together five must-have car accessories you’ll want to snag for your vehicle in 2016.

A phone is pretty much pointless if it’s dead, though. Avoid getting stuck in a bad place by keeping a phone charger in your car at all times. A phone charger that hooks up to your cigarette lighter or a USB port in your car can help prevent a dead phone while you’re out and about. Even if your phone is all charged up, don’t forget one important rule of the road: Don’t text and drive.

car floor matsFloor mats Most cars come with their own sets of floor mats, but a separate set can help protect your car’s floor from spills, dirt and grime. There are so many options when it comes to floor mats for your car. Texture is something to consider when choosing a set of floor mats for your car. Rubber mats can stand up to dirt and mud, while carpet mats can be stylish and can be easily vacuumed by removing them from your car when you’re cleaning.
