Ron’s Spring Car Maintenance Tips

Spring Car Maintenance Tips | Amesbury Chevrolet

Winter is rolling out, and spring will take its place before we know it. Is your car ready for a road trip? Check out what Ron, our service manager, has to say when it comes to spring car maintenance tips!

Change the Wipers

Do you use your windshield wipers during winter? If you do, odds are the rubber wiper blades have taken quite a hit from the snow, ice, and cold. That can leave the blades unable to clear the spring showers from your windshield.

Changing your wiper blades is something most drivers can do at home. A replacement set doesn’t cost much compared to the cost of a fender bender because you couldn’t see.

It’s important to make sure your view of the road is free and clear. Your windshield wipers are the first line of defense to an unobstructed view.

Check the Battery

Your car can’t start without a functioning battery. Performing a battery inspection can help avoid any unexpected surprises. Open the hood and perform a visual inspection for any bulges or bumps. Tighten all the connections and scrape any corrosion off of the posts. If it’s been more than three years, consider replacing the battery altogether.

Wash the Exterior

A harsh winter can lead to salt and debris buildup that can harm your car’s paintjob. Wash every inch and crevice of your car. Once the paint shines in the sunlight, apply a coat of wax.

For even more spring maintenance, stop into Amesbury Chevrolet.

Chevrolet TrailBlazer Rumors—Will the TrailBlazer Return?

2019 Chevrolet Blazer | Amesbury Chevrolet | Amesbury, MA
Picture from https://www.cnet.com

The Return Of The TrailBlazer

Between cryptic statements from Chevrolet officials and intriguing spy shots of a new disguised Chevy vehicle, the return of the TrailBlazer to the Chevrolet lineup is looking more and more likely. A new TrailBlazer still hasn’t been confirmed, but rumors are flying about when it might happen—and where it might fit into Chevy’s lineup.

Motor Trend claims that the new TrailBlazer would fall between the Trax and Equinox, a similar size to the Trax but with a more high-end interior and features. This theory checks out, as the spy shots were initially thought to be of the next-generation Trax due to its size.

It could very well be the Trax, but the vehicle in the spy shots is notably larger than the current Trax, and shares a lot of styling cues—from what we can see—with the Chevy Blazer, so it would make sense for it to be the TrailBlazer.

Real News vs. Fake News

Marketing director Steve Majoros fanned the flames of the Chevrolet TrailBlazer rumors when asked to comment on them. He didn’t give a specific answer but allegedly smiled and said that there would be news coming in 2019.

Whether we’ll actually get a new TrailBlazer is still up in the air, but one thing is for certain: We can expect major news about a new release from Chevy in the next few months. We here at Amesbury Chevrolet are eager to share some such information with you.

Saying Goodbye to GM Sedans

2018 Chevrolet Impala

Style trends come and go, but modern driving needs and lifestyles are here to stay. In order to best meet the needs of modern drivers, GM has decided to stop making three of its Chevy sedans: the Chevy Impala (full-size sedan), Chevy Cruze (compact car), and Chevy Volt (plug-in hybrid electric car). GM’s announcement comes with little surprise, as it’s the third domestic automaker to begin focusing on the growing SUV, truck, and electric vehicle segments.

The goodbye is bittersweet, as Americans have been moving away from sedans and towards SUVs for years now. American drivers are drawn to the versatility, space, smarts, and capabilities of SUVs. GM’s decision, therefore, will likely do nothing but allow the automaker to fine-tune the sedans it continues to offer and focus its attention on the vehicles that American drivers most desire. In addition, GM plans that “resources allocated to electric and autonomous vehicle programs will double in the next two years,” demonstrating its commitment to future automotive innovation.

Are you a proud owner of one of the discontinued sedans? Never fear, as you’ll still be able to have your vehicle serviced and repaired for years to come. Although GM is moving onto more popular segments and innovative electric vehicle technologies, it’ll never abandon its loyal customer base. That’s a guarantee from our team at Amesbury Chevrolet.

Vixen’s Winter Car Care Tips

Amesbury Winter Car Care Tips

 

As anyone in the Amesbury area will tell you, winter weather can create a number of challenges for drivers. But with a little planning and preparation, there’s no reason why you can’t drive with confidence all winter long. Not sure where to start? I’ve got you covered with these winter car care tips.

 

Test battery

 

Cold weather can put extra strain on your car’s battery, and can quickly transform a dying battery into a dead battery. Before winter officially arrives, it’s important to test your car’s battery to make sure it’s up to the task of winter driving.

 

Monitor tires

 

Between snow, sleet, ice, and cold, traction is very important when driving in winter. Fall is the perfect time to check in on your car’s tires and monitor for proper pressure, alignment and tread.

 

Keep an eye on antifreeze

 

Coolant (AKA antifreeze) is essential for keeping your car’s engine running when the temperature begins to drop. As the name implies, antifreeze literally keeps the engine from freezing up in the cold, so it’s important to keep an eye on antifreeze levels going into the colder months of the year.

 

Stow emergency kit

 

Finally, it’s always a good idea to stow some emergency items in your car. During the winter, you should pack a kit in your car that contains food and water, blankets, and a battery-powered cellphone charger.

 

For more tips on how to prepare for winter’s worst, come speak with our staff at Amesbury Chevrolet.
