01.18.17 - Cold Car

Nearly every piece of conventional wisdom has gone out the window over the years because of the changes in technology. Even so, many of us still prescribe to old suggestions and bits of knowledge that were part of automotive care in the past. It’s time to begin to forget anything you knew about cars of the past, especially if you have a car that’s been built in the past decade or so.

Sometimes You Really Have to Watch Out

When we get behind the wheel to drive out on the roads in our area we have certain expectations. If it’s raining, snowing or icy out we expect to see more accidents than normal and need to take our time as we travel on the roads.

The desire is that we can get where we want to go on time when we’re out on the roads, especially if everything is normal.

The Transition in the Market Doesn’t Scare Chevrolet

01.10.17 - Chevrolet Malibu

Over the past several years we’ve seen the market of vehicles move from the sedans to the crossover SUV and recently this larger vehicle market have actually outsold the sedan market for the first time. Even though this is the case, Chevrolet isn’t backing away from their sedans at all as they continue to have confidence this segment of the market will give vehicles that are perfect for many drivers, considering this has typically been the largest segment of vehicles when it comes to sales.

01.09.17 - The SHERP
