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.

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.
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.
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.

Amesbury, Massachusetts, is a city that is proud of is long and established history. However, Amesbury becomes even more passionate about its history around the Fourth of July. Independence Day is not only a big deal for the people of Amesbury, but the New England area as a whole. In fact, the Fourth of July marks a celebration in Amesbury known as Amesbury Days.
A block party on June 23 marked the kickoff event of Amesbury Days, where community members in the Amesbury area gathered to celebrate the town we all call home. On June 25, Amesbury celebrated the citywide favorite fruit during the Strawberry Festival. One of our favorite events, the car show, took place the next day on June 26.
However, the real showstopper of the festival is the magnificent fireworks display. This year, the fireworks show will take place on Sunday, July 3. The show will also be accompanied by music.
Show your support and passion for the city of Amesbury by participating in this year’s Amesbury Days! What’s your favorite part?
