Road Trip Prep Tips

Road trips can create some of the best memories from your travels when you’re prepared. In order to make your next trip less stressful, we’ve compiled a list of things to do before you head out:

    1. Check tire pressure
      You should be checking all of your tire pressures, including your spare tire. While doing this, also check your jack and tire changing kit. Depending on your vehicle, the spare tire should be in your trunk or under the tailgate. GM provides a handy kit alongside your spare tire, so do your future self a favour and familiarize.  An emergency kit also helps ease your mind, since they have booster cables, a flashlight, general bandages, etc. Confused already? Stop by and we can check it for you and help you familiarize yourself with all the tools. Also ask about our emergency kit available in parts (it includes booster cables, first aid kit, flashlight, etc).
    2. How close are you to your next oil change
      You should be getting an oil change at least every 5000-8000km or every 3 months. If you do end up needing an oil change before you leave, ask them to check your fluids, wiper blades, and to do a proper inspection on your vehicle. Here at Davis we can do a 24 point inspection, top up your fluids, rotate your tires, change your air filters, wiper blades and light bulbs in our Quick Lube.
    3. Gas up
      This one should be obvious, but sometimes you just get too excited to get on the road that the obvious become forgotten. It’s also great to figure out where the gas up points are on your trip as well. If you’re looking for the best deal around town, check out GasBuddy as well.
    4. Have maps/GPS/Navigation ready
      Be prepared for construction, closed roads, traffic congestion, and other unexpected delays. Sometimes the GPS can take you on an unnecessary route, so have an idea going in on where you should be. Maps are always great to have for backup when you hit those blackout areas.
    5. Charging cord or Wireless Charger
      Charging your phone is especially important if you are using it for navigation. Fortunately with today’s Bluetooth capabilities you can be navigated hands free through your radio or even easier if you have Navigation built into your vehicle.
    6. BONUS TIP FOR ONSTAR SUBSCRIBERS: Make sure you’re covered
      OnStar provides convenient help where-ever you’re travelling, but double check you’re covered for both Service and Wi-Fi with this map: https://www.onstar.com/ca/en/services/coveragemaps.html
      Checking over your vehicle is also easier with OnStar as you can get notification on your vehicles health when you have the app on your phone. If you pull over for a hike or stop, you can also double check you locked the vehicle from your phone or remote start it so it’s cooled or heated before you hop in through the mybuick or mygmc app.

The Verano is Here! The Verano is Here!

Well folks this long awaited day is finally upon us – Last night at 6:00 our very first 20120 Buick Verano was delivered to the dealership!! The car is currently in the process of being inspected and cleaned, after which we’ll post some pictures, but for now we’ll go over some highlights of our new luxury compact sedan.

The Verano is based on the Buick Excelle – one of the best selling luxury cars in China – and built on the same platform as the Chevy Cruze. However the similarities with the Cruze end at the platform – The Verano was built with a sculpted design, luxurious, extremely quiet interior, with advanced connectivity and user friendly technology. Using Buick’s signature Quiettuning Technology, the Verano has proven itself to be the quietest car in its class. They have acheived this with extra thick acoustic laminated glass, duel-density carpet, premium door sealing, liquid sound deadeners, and tires and wheels specifically desighned to counteract NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness.)

Inside, the Verano boasts a 7-inch color touchscreen radio with Buick IntelliLink, Bluetooth, USB, streaming audio, and available connectivity to the smartphone app Stitcher Radio. IntelliLink is one of the greatest triumphs Buick has come out with in recent years – it uses Bluetooth connectivity to integrate with your smartphone and allows control and full functionality of your phonebook, streaming audio, enhanced voice recognition and control of USB connected devices.

We’ve got 2 more Verano’s on their way and they should be landing here later this week – come in and have a look for yourself, you won’t be disappointed!

2013 Buick Encore Revealed at NAIAS!!

Exciting news from the North American International Auto Show in Detroit – Buick has revealed their new small crossover!! Welcome the 2013 Encore to the family!! The Encore will be smaller than most other vehicles in its class, with a 2.66 meter wheelbase, but it packs 1,359 litres of cargo room onto a revised version of the platform used on the current subcompact Chevrolet Sonic. The Encore will also share its powertrain with the Sonic and Chevy Cruze, a 1.4L turbo 4-cylinder that cranks out 140 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque.

The Encore joins the Verano – this years new addition – to round an already stellar lineup with the Regal, Lacrosse, and Enclave SUV. It will get the same IntelliLink hands free bluetooth system with 17.7 cm LCD screen that is coming to all Buick models for 2012, and will also feature an all-new Active Noise Cancellation system which will make the Encore one of the quietest rides on the road.

” Buick Encore is a great-looking, smart choice for those who want luxury crossover amenities in a more maneuverable and agile vehicle,” said Tony DiSalle, US vice president of Buick Marketing. “It represents a luxury alternative for a new audience of Buick customers, and delivers features and flexibility not typically found in vehicles of its size today.”

The Encore will be hitting dealer lots in early 2013 – enjoy some pictures from the NAIAS for the time being!
