"There is so much mind-boggling technology in cars today, we can hardly keep up with it," said Dave Womer, a salesman for 25 years at Mel Grata Chevrolet-Toyota on East State Street in Hermitage.
"You can get readouts of your tire pressure over the radio," Womer said.
Regarding the onslaught of technological gadgetry, Womer and other area car dealers say one advancement stands out: OnStar, an option thatís becoming the base-model standard in an increasing number of cars.
OnStar is as cool as it is practical.
"Itís a very worthwhile opt-ion, even if you have to use it only once," said Brian Knierman, sales manager at Greenville Motors Chevrolet-Oldsmobile-Cadillac-Buick on Sharon Road in West Salem Township.
Most of the security features are part of OnStarís basic package, which comes free for the first year.
"Ordinary people are interested in it for safety reasons," said Womer.
Other newfangled options offered to customers include side airbags, infrared windshields and heated sideview mirrors.
