    Chevrolet Introduces the New 2019 Corvette ZR1 - 11/17/2017

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich.,–– The unmistakeable performance, style, and legacy of the Corvette brand is in no danger of fading away anytime soon, thanks to the latest iteration of the Chevy sports car. Chevrolet has introduced the new 2019 Corvette ZR1, the fastest and most powerful model yet. Recently unveiled in Dubai, the new Corvette is the pinnacle of supercar design with plenty of bravado to spare. Chevrolet, in their own words, has even gone so far as to herald the ZR1's comeback as the "Return of the King".

    Chevrolet Introduces the New 2019 Corvette ZR1

    The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has an exclusive LT5 6.2L V8 supercharged engine that affords it 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque, again, making it the fastest and most powerful production Corvette ever. It offers seven-speed manual and eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmissions. If that's not enough for you, take a look at the aggressive new exterior design. The new front fascia is engineered to channel air for drivetrain cooling and propulsion, and additional aero packages (Low Wing and High Wing) are available to give the new ZR1 significantly more downforce and perform even better out on the race track. Top speed for the ZR1 is over 210 mph, in case you were curious.

    Chevrolet Introduces the New 2019 Corvette ZR1

    Chevrolet introduced the world to the new 2019 Corvette ZR1 and put the other sports car brands on notice. If they want to keep up, however, they're going to have to drive really, really, fast. If you're interested in getting behind the wheel of a Corvette, you can always contact our sales team at Graff Mt Pleasant to get more information. Additionally, this time of year, we recommend bringing in your current vehicle to our Service Center to prepare for winter. Freezing temperatures take a toll on your car's internal components and could potentially cause it to shut down, leaving you stranded on the side of the road in the cold. Thankfully, following our Fall Car Care maintenance routine is a great way to keep your vehicle in top shape to avoid any issues.

    Travel Tips for Thanksgiving With Young Children - 11/14/2017

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich.,–– Whether you have a long or short drive to your Turkey Day festivities this year, driving with your little ones can sometimes be a hectic endeavor. While we're sure you have a few tricks that help make long drives easier, we recommend following our travel trips for Thanksgiving with young children. The easier your traveling goes, the more you'll be able to enjoy the turkey and other delicious food!

    Travel Tips for Thanksgiving With Young Children

    Allow for Plenty of Travel Time


    The best way to make sure you arrive on time to Thanksgiving dinner is to give yourself a little cushion, especially when you've got to load the little ones into the car. Or, you may run in o any number of mishaps or slowdowns that may happen with your kids such a spills, tantrums, or anything else. So, start your trip 15-20 minutes early to make sure the whole drive goes smoothly.

    Bring Some Snacks


    While your children will be filling up on turkey, potatoes, green beans, and pumpkin pie at dinner they're likely going to need something to tide them over on the drive. Granola bars, veggies, or some nuts are great snack options!

    Have a Road Trip Toy Bag


    This is a more long-term solution for road trips and long drives in the future, but a handy tip to keep your kids occupied and happy is to keep a toy bag in your car at all times. This way even if their favorite stuffed animal, action figure, or doll is forgotten at home, you'll have the bag of toys ready to go.

    Don't Forget the Car Seat Tray


    For snacking, drawing, and just a general way to keep this tidier on you drive, don't forget the car seat tray at home. It will help keep any spills or stains from occurring on the interior of your car!

    Bring Along Some Art Supplies


    They have the potential to be a little messy, but bringing along some art supplies like crayons, paper, and stickers are a great way to keep your kids creatively stimulated during a long drive. We recommend making sure you have a sturdy car seat tray or a travel lap desk for older kids.

    Turn On the Electronics


    Bringing your tablet or a portable DVD player to keep your kids engaged with their favorite shows or movies. Nothing has revolutionized the road trip for parents more than modern electronics!

    Warm Up The Car Ahead of Time


    This time of year can be very chilly and to avoid runny noses and the sniffles, make sure to warm your car up before everyone in your family hops in to head out. Getting your car nice and toasty will make the ride more enjoyable for everyone.

    So this Thanksgiving, use these tips to make traveling with young children much easier on yourself. Your whole family will be much happier and ready to talk to your extended family when you reach your destination. You can also ensure your holiday travels go smoothly by completing our Fall Car Care maintenance routine. You don't want your car to break down once the freezing temperatures start affecting your vehicle's internal components.

    15 Crazy Halloween Facts - 10/26/2017

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich. – Halloween is one of the most beloved holidays of the world, but most people don't even know how it began or why it's celebrated! Check out these 15 crazy Halloween facts to find out why we celebrate Halloween, how jack-o-lanterns came into existence, how heavy the biggest pumpkin in the world weighed, and more below!

    15 Crazy Halloween Facts

    1. Halloween has been celebrated for over 6,000 years! It is thought to have originated around 4,000 B.C.E., and since then, has become one of the most celebrated holidays in the world.
    2. Halloween hasn't always been called Halloween. It's gone by several names, like Samhain, All Hallow's Eve, Witches' Night, Snap-Apple Night, and even Summer's End.
    3. Halloween began as a Celtic festival for the dead called "Samhain". People at the time believed that Samhain was the day of the dead and that spirits would roam the earth. They would dress as ghosts and demons and leave "treats" on their front porch for the spirits so that they wouldn't be haunted.
    4. The Jack-o-Lantern was also started in Ireland, based on the story of the ghost of Stingy Jack. Irish people carved terrifying faces into pumpkins, potatoes, beets, and turnips to scare Stingy Jack and other spirits away from their homes on Halloween.
    5. The biggest pumpkin in recorded history weighed over 2,624.6 lbs. That's one big jack-o-lantern!
    6. In the Middle Ages, it was customary for trick-or-treaters to have to sing or dance in order to receive their treats. This was a practice known as "mumming" and is still practiced in some parts of Europe!
    7. This year, Americans are projected to spend over $618 million on pumpkins alone!
    8. Americans spend over $6 billion on Halloween annually, coming in second place to Christmas as the most commercial holiday in the United States.
    9. Halloween candy can last a lot longer than you'd think! Chocolates can last up to two years if stored in a dry area, and hard candy can last up to a year. Thankfully, you won't have to eat all of your candy in one day!
    10. Halloween is the sweetest holiday of the year. Chocolate sold on Halloween doubles the amount sold on Valentine's day. In fact, over $1.9 billion a year is spent on Halloween candy alone in the United States!
    11. Black and orange, the main colors of Halloween, both have symbolic meaning. Orange stands for the strength and endurance of autumn, while black symbolizes death and darkness, paying tribute to Halloween's origin as the day of the dead.
    12. In Mexico, the Day of the Dead is celebrated on November 1st instead of October 31st. Participants dress up like the dead and parade down the street in honor of those that have passed on to the next life.
    13. The Lantern Festival in China is celebrated to commemorate Halloween. Lanterns shaped like dragons are hung throughout streets to guide spirits back to their homes, and families typically leave food and water by their ancestors' portraits to welcome them for the evening.
    14. According to Safe Kids America, children are twice as likely to be involved in car accidents during Halloween. If you're going out, make sure to teach your children about street safety and keep an eye out for vehicles on the road!
    15. It is extremely rare for Halloween to occur during a full moon. The next full moon Halloween will take place on 10/31/2020.

    6 Tips for Safe Halloween Driving - 10/20/2017

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich. – On October 31st, parents, children, ghosts, ghouls, and goblins will all make their way to the streets to take part in the annual tradition of trick-or-treating. However, due to the busy atmosphere and large crowds of people walking around at night, Halloween is also one of the most dangerous times of the year. According to Safe Kids USA, children are twice as likely to be involved in vehicle-related accidents on Halloween than they would any other day of the year. Make the road safer for trick-or-treaters this year with these 6 tips for safe Halloween driving.

    1. Check Your Oil and Coolant


    6 Tips for Safe Halloween Driving

    Your vehicle's oil and coolant help to regulate the temperature of your engine, preventing it from overheating as you drive. Without proper oil levels, your engine's components will rub against one another, creating friction, producing heat and causing damage to important parts of your engine. Additionally, a low coolant level can cause heat to produce at a much faster rate, which can quickly create problems within your engine and its components. An overheating engine can cause a vehicle to break down and increase the chances of traffic buildups and accidents on the road. Keep an eye on your fluid levels to increase your safety on the road!

    Our Recommendation: You should have your oil changed every 3,000-5,000 miles, or whenever your vehicle owner's manual tells you to do so, and have your coolant checked and changed every 30,000 miles. If you aren't sure how to check your oil or coolant, our guide will provide you with step-by-step instructions and indicators to determine whether or not you need your oil or coolant changed!

    2. Test Your Headlights and Taillights


    6 Tips for Safe Halloween Driving

    If you're planning on driving at night, one of the most important components to check before you hit the road are your headlights and taillights. Your headlights will help you spot pedestrians and hazards on the road as you drive, keeping both you and other trick-or-treaters safe this Halloween. Your taillights serve a similar purpose, as they help to notify pedestrians and other drivers behind you when you are preparing to stop or take a turn. Making sure your headlights and taillights are in working condition can make a huge difference this Halloween season.

    Our Recommendation: Bring a friend along for this one! When the sun goes down, have them stand in front of your parked vehicle as you turn it on, engaging the headlights. Next, turn on your left turn signal, then your right turn signal. After that, make your buddy stand behind the vehicle and repeat the process. If they notice any dim or dark headlights or taillights, wait until the morning and then bring it into our Service Center. We'll make sure your lights are in proper working condition before Halloween begins!

    3. Practice Street Safety


    6 Tips for Safe Halloween Driving

    Street safety might seem like a no-brainer if you've been driving for a long time, but people can be very unpredictable on Halloween. Groups will frequently jaywalk or cross the street at the last second at busy intersections. While this may be frustrating as a driver, practicing defensive driving during the holiday season can make the difference between a minor inconvenience and a Halloween nightmare.

    Our Recommendation: Pay very close attention to speed limits, crosswalks, and other street signs that can indicate whether or not you will need to stop. If you see pedestrians attempting to cross the road, give them the right of way and allow them to proceed. Additionally, if you approach a yellow light, do not try to make the light and cross the intersection! This is an extremely unsafe driving habit and can lead to dangerous consequences. Refer to these Halloween driving safety tips to keep your trick-or-treaters and passengers safe this year.

    4. Fill Your Tires


    6 Tips for Safe Halloween Driving

    Driving with low air in your tires can affect your vehicle in a variety of ways. You'll experience poor gas mileage, have difficulty braking, and may even encounter damage to your axles or wheels themselves. Keeping your tires properly inflated can help you avoid accidents, costly repairs, and will greatly improve your fuel economy.

    Our Recommendation: First, check the amount of PSI or pressure your vehicle owner's manual says your tires should be at. Next, purchase a tire gauge to help you determine your tires' PSI. Finally, head to a nearby gas station or tire inflation center and find the nearest air pump. Unscrew the small cap on your hubcap and insert the air pump, pressing down on the lever to engage the air. Alternate filling your tires with pressure and checking your tires' pressure on the gauge to determine when they are at their appropriate level. Lastly, once you've successfully filled all your tires to their proper PSI, screw the caps back on your tires.

    5. Use Your Vehicle's Advanced Safety Features


    6 Tips for Safe Halloween Driving

    Do you own a new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, or Cadillac vehicle? Good news! It's probably equipped with a suite of advanced safety features! From the optional Adaptive Cruise Control to the standard Rear Vision Camera, you can make the road a much safer place with your vehicle's safety features.

    Our Recommendation: If you own or are interested in buying or leasing a new vehicle, explore some of the advanced safety features that come standard or optional on most GM vehicles, then let us know if you want to schedule a test drive to see how this technology works in person!

    6. Have Your Vehicle Inspected


    6 Tips for Safe Halloween Driving

    The best way to ensure that your vehicle is run effectively on the road this Halloween is to have it inspected. Our ASE Certified service team members can help with oil changes, coolant flushes, tire changes, headlight replacements, and much more. You can schedule a check-up to have your vehicle's important components inspected to make sure that it is safe to drive.

    Our Recommendation: The best way to keep your vehicle in great shape is by staying up to date on its routine maintenance. It's an important part of vehicle ownership that can often be overlooked, but proper care and effort will ensure that your car, truck, crossover, or SUV lasts a very long time.

    It is always better to be safe than sorry, especially on a busy and crowded day like Halloween. Make the streets a less dangerous place this October 31st with these 6 tips for safe Halloween driving. As we mentioned earlier, one of the best ways to protect yourself on the road is to take advantage of the advanced safety features available on GM vehicles. Also, let us know if you have any questions or would like to try these safety features for yourself by scheduling a free test drive

    Chevrolet Develops Stain-Resistant Interior for the 2018 Equinox - 10/11/2017

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich. –  Over the past year, Chevrolet paid close attention to social media, noting the experiences and inconveniences their customers faced while on the road. The most common problem was the natural wear and tear on the interior of their vehicles as well as messes and spills that can occur. There was even an issue with dark-wash denim blue jeans staining the fabric of the seats in new vehicles.

    With this in mind, Chevrolet developed a stain-resistant interior for the 2018 Equinox to withstand all the spills, scuffs, and other messes that can occur while driving and through everyday life. The intricate new design was based on the way Equinox customers live, complimenting the crossover's unique style with long-lasting materials to make a fashionable statement both on and off the road.

    Chevrolet Develops Stain-Resistant Interior for the 2018 Equinox

    The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox's durable denim-like seat fabric and available leather seating surfaces are designed for easy cleanup in the event of spills or messes, ideal if you plan on making this crossover the family vehicle. The treatments used on the fabric and leather also resist stains and scuffing that would otherwise leave unsightly marks on a vehicle's interior. With the new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox, you can rest easy knowing that its interior will hold up against pretty much everything and look as good as the day you bought it!

    Chevrolet Develops Stain-Resistant Interior for the 2018 Equinox

    “Many fashion trends disappear after a year of two, while the Equinox is designed for the long haul, making the durability of its materials very important,” said Mara Kapsis, color and trim designer for the 2018 Equinox. “By following real people and absorbing the little things in life that help or hinder them — such as photos posted of muddy paws, spilled drinks or stains on the seats — we learned more about how we could make the new Equinox easier to live with and enjoy every day.”

    Chevrolet Develops Stain-Resistant Interior for the 2018 Equinox

    With customers like you and your family in mind, Chevrolet developed a stain-resistant interior for the 2018 Equinox! If you're interested, take a look at the 2018 Equinox Brochure to get a closer look at this cutting-edge crossover's engine specifications, technology features, and more. After you've read up on the Equinox, explore the Equinox Model Overview to compare trim levels, prices, and customer reviews on the vehicle. Then, once you've gathered all the knowledge you can on the new crossover, browse our Equinox Inventory to get a closer look at the models we have in stock!

    Cadillac Drives Coast-to-Coast With Hands-Free Technology - 10/03/2017

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich. – This October, Cadillac will make history. Cadillac will drive coast-to-coast with hands-free technology, making the first journey from New York City to Los Angeles, California with the industry-leading Super Cruise feature. Super Cruise technology is the first hands-free highway driving system of its kind. Using radar technology and a driver attention system, Super Cruise brings a new level to highway driving, allowing you and your passengers to rest easy on the road while their vehicle's automatic lane-centering keeps everyone safe while on the freeway.

    Cadillac Drives Coast-to-Coast With Hands-Free Technology

    Beginning their journey in New York City, a twelve vehicle caravan of Super Cruise-equipped 2018 Cadillac CT6s will travel from coast-to-coast, crossing through 16 states and Washington DC. The fleet of CT6s will make stops in several major U.S. cities including Cleveland, Chicago, Memphis, Dallas, Santa Fe, and Phoenix. This revolutionary Super Cruise technology enables this hands-free driving across over 130,000 miles of limited access, divided freeways throughout the United States.

    “Cadillac is setting new industry standards with ground-breaking driver assistance technologies like Super Cruise, the world’s first true hands-free driving system for the freeway,” said Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac president. “We are excited to bring Super Cruise, a true testament to Cadillac’s innovative spirit and technical capability, on its first-ever hands-free drive on freeways from coast to coast.” - Cadillac

    Cadillac Drives Coast-to-Coast With Hands-Free Technology

    Available on the new 2018 Cadillac CT6, Super Cruise technology redefines safe highway driving. It also works to ensure that the driver is aware of the road ahead of them even when the technology is in effect. This driver attention system is designed to help prevent accidents from occurring by keeping the driver alert and attentive to traffic and road conditions with various alerts such as a steering wheel light bar, visual indicators on the center vehicle display, and sound notifications. 

    While Cadillac drives coast-to-coast with hands-free technology, you can commute to work, head out on a road trip, or pick your kids up from school with the hands-free highway driving of the 2018 Cadillac CT6! Take a look at our Cadillac CT6 Model Overview to view what trim levels are compatible with Super Cruise technology.

    How to Take Care of Your Car This Fall - 09/27/2017

    How to Take Care of Your Car this Fall

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich.,–– Fall is here, and winter is on its way. Soon the colder temperatures will be making you run to your closet to put on a sweatshirt. Turns out though, your vehicle is also affected by the changing of the seasons as well. During the colder seasons, important components of your vehicle can become worn or damaged due to the changing temperatures. Protect your vehicle and your investment by learning how to take care of your car this fall. In this blog, we'll inform you about the importance of your vehicle's belts and hoses, windshield, heating and ventilation system, and weather strips, and will also give you tips on putting together and maintaining an emergency kit to keep in your vehicle. Read on to find out more!

    Belts and Hoses

    How to Take Care of Your Car this Fall

    Your engine requires a lot of working components in order to get you from Point A to Point B. The belts and hoses in your vehicle are some of the most important parts in your car. They transfer power and fluids throughout your vehicle to help it function properly. However, broken or damaged belts and hoses can potentially disable your engine or cause severe damage to it. In the fall and winter, colder temperatures can cause your belts and hoses to crack or break, which is why having them checked this time of year is extremely important. 

    Windshield Care

    How to Take Care of Your Car this Fall

    If you had to name off at least three important safety components in your vehicle, would you even think of naming your windshield? Probably not! Your windshield protects you from wind, dirt, and debris while you drive, but it also keeps your vehicle structurally intact in the event of a collision or rollover. Read up on our website page to learn more about what to do if you discover any cracks or chips, and how to prevent them from expanding and further damaging your windshield.

    Heating and Ventilation System

    How to Take Care of Your Car this Fall

    Believe it or not, your heating and ventilation system is another extremely important safety component in your vehicle! The heating and ventilation system in your vehicle obviously keeps your cabin warm while you drive in cold weather and defrosts your windows so you're able to see out your windshield morning on your way to work. But if you get stuck on the side of the road for whatever reason during the upcoming winter months, your heating system will keep you from freezing until help arrives. Consult our website for more information on maintenance, care, and what to do if your heating and ventilation system isn't working.

    Weather Strips

    How to Take Care of Your Car this Fall

    Have you ever wondered what the black rubber strips that surround your car doors are called? They're known as weather strips, and they're located around your windows, windshield, and trunk as well as your doors. They work by preventing water, dirt, and debris from entering your vehicle, and can become worn or damaged over time, which can be problematic during colder seasons. On our website, you can learn the importance of weather strips, how to spot damage on them, and how to know if they need to be replaced.

    Emergency Kit

    How to Take Care of Your Car this Fall

    When you're out and about on the road, it never hurts to be prepared. Keeping a properly stocked emergency kit in your vehicle will help you be ready for any situation you can encounter while driving. Our emergency kit page is full of information on putting together your very own emergency kit to keep in your vehicle, with tips on what to keep year-round and important seasonal items like a shovel or ice scraper. Let us know if you have any questions about putting together an emergency kit. We're happy to help!

    Your vehicle is a big investment. Keep it protected when the temperatures start dropping by learning how to take care of your car this fall. You can discover tips on how to keep your emergency kit stocked and your weather strips, heating and ventilation system, windshield, and belts and hoses in top condition with our Fall Car Care advice. If you have any questions or would like assistance with putting together your emergency kit or spotting areas in your vehicle that may require maintenance, give our team a call and let us know!

    At Hank Graff Mt. Pleasant we strive to provide our customers with a car buying experience that is accommodating, stress-free and fun! Visit us at our Chevrolet dealership located at 4580 E Pickard Rd in Mount Pleasant, Michigan 48858 or our Buick GMC Cadillac dealership located at 116 N. Mission St in Mount Pleasant, MI 48858.

We'll be discussing features, benefits, and capabilities of both vehicles. While both have their own strengths, choosing between the two is a matter of preference! The best part about purchasing an electric vehicle is that you'll be helping the environment and saving money that you'd otherwise spend filling up your gas tank. Read on to discover the benefits of the Chevrolet Bolt and Volt today!

    2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV


    Chevrolet Electric Vehicle Comparison

    The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is a fully electric hatchback sedan that receives an impressive 238 miles-per-charge. As an energy efficient vehicle, the Bolt EV also comes equipped with one-pedal driving technology to save drivers additional energy. One-pedal driving technology allows drivers to recapture any energy expended from driving without having to touch your brakes. While driving in Low mode at any speed, you can slow down by lifting your foot from the accelerator. This impressive new technology extends the life of your brakes and improves the battery of your Bolt EV.

    For the more adventurous type, the Bolt EV has the versatility needed for any journey. The seats in the Bolt EV can fold down to give drivers 56.6 cubic feet of cargo space so you can pack anything you need for your next vacation or adventure. Its interactive 10.2-inch Chevrolet MyLink display provides information on energy usage, vehicle details, driving habits, and much more. If you're interested in taking a closer look at the wide variety of features standard on the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, take a look at our 2017 Bolt EV Model Overview page.

    2017 Chevrolet Volt


    Chevrolet Electric Vehicle Comparison

    The 2017 Chevrolet Volt is a sleek hybrid sedan, receiving up to 420 miles with a full charge and a full tank of gas. Chevrolet estimates that owners will drive over 1,100 miles between fill-ups with regular charging, making the need for weekly trips to the gas station a thing of the past. New Volt owners can also rest easy knowing that their batteries receive an 8 year/100,000 mile warranty and 5 years/60,000 miles of 24-hour roadside assistance whenever it's needed.

    Owners of the new 2017 Chevrolet Volt can take advantage of further energy savings with Regen On Demand technology and a real-time Driver Information Center located behind the steering wheel. Regen On Demand works similar to the one-pedal technology standard on the Bolt EV in that your vehicle can convert leftover energy into your battery to improve your electric vehicle range while you drive. The Driver Information Center provides you with live updates on your energy usage and helpful advice that can improve your driving habits to increase your battery range. Learn more about what the Chevrolet Volt can do for you by downloading the 2017 Chevrolet Volt Vehicle Brochure for details on specs, trim levels, and much more!

    How to Check Your Oil and Tire Pressure - 09/13/2017

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich.,–– Every vehicle owner has to deal with routine maintenance at some point or another. Oil changes, tire rotations, and filter replacements are all necessary forms of routine maintenance that keep your vehicle running at peak efficiency. On the bright side, though, you can check several important components in the comfort of your own home. We've put together instructions to help you learn how to check your oil and tire pressure. If your tires' pressure is low or you need an oil change, schedule an appointment with us at Graff Mt. Pleasant for fast and friendly service today!

    How to Check Your Oil


    How to Check Your Oil and Tire Pressure

    Checking your oil is easy and only takes a few minutes! Follow these quick steps to find out whether or not you need an oil change:

    What You'll Need: A cloth 

    Directions:
    1. Wait a few minutes after turning off your vehicle for your engine to cool down.
    2. Pop the hood and locate the yellow dipstick on your engine. (It should look similar to the image above.)
    3. Pull the dipstick out of your engine and wipe it on a cloth.
    4. Reinsert your dipstick and remove it one more time.
    5. Take a close look at the indicators on your dipstick. Locate the "full" and "empty" labels. If your oil levels are on or below the "empty" component, it's time for an oil change!

    Signs You Need an Oil Change


    How to Check Your Oil and Tire Pressure

    Typically, you should get your oil changed every 3,000-5,000 miles, or whenever your vehicle owner's manual tells you to do so. If you aren't sure whether or not you need an oil change, don't worry, it is very easy to figure out for yourself! Keep an eye on these factors to determine whether or not you need an oil change:

    • Your Oil's Color: Fresh oil recently has a light brown, honey color, but over time, it darkens and becomes thicker. If your oil turns black, it's time to get an oil change, as black oil can contain particles that will damage your engine's components!
    • Your Oil's Consistency: The next time you check your oil, take a little bit of oil from your dipstick and rub it between your thumb and finger. If it feels coarse and gritty, it means your oil contains contaminants and needs to be changed.
    • Your Check Engine Light is On: If your check engine light comes on while you drive, schedule a service appointment right away. It could mean your oil needs to be changed or could potentially be something more serious. It's better to be safe than sorry!
    • Your Engine is Louder Than Normal: If your vehicle's engine is louder than it usually sounds, it could mean that your oil needs replacing. As engine oil ages, it loses a lot of its lubricating properties, which can cause your engine's components to create friction and can cause potential damage. Make sure this doesn't happen by scheduling service as soon as possible!

    How to Check Your Tire Pressure


    How to Check Your Oil and Tire Pressure

    Checking your tire pressure is almost as easy as checking your oil! It only takes a few minutes, but you'll want to check all four tires to be sure that they are all at least at the minimum pressure that is required of your vehicle. If you aren't sure what level your tire pressure should be, consult your vehicle owner's manual for more information. Follow these steps to check your tire pressure so that you can determine whether or not you need to re-inflate or replace your tires.

    What You'll Need: a reliable tire pressure gauge

    Directions:

    1. Wait several hours after driving to check your tire pressure when your tires cool down. That way, you'll receive a more accurate reading, as heat from driving can temporarily reduce your tire pressure.
    2. Remove the end caps on your tires' air valves (the small golden cylinders on your tires). Make sure to set them in a safe place so that they don't get lost.
    3. Insert your tire pressure gauge to check your PSI reading. 
      1. If your reading is above the recommended PSI, push the air valve in to let out a little bit of air.
      2. If your reading is below the recommended PSI, fill your tire with air until you reach the recommended level.

    Signs Your Tires Need Replacing


    How to Check Your Oil and Tire Pressure

    It's best to check your tires' air on a monthly basis so that they are always properly inflated or to see if they need replacing. Use these helpful tips to determine whether or not your tires need to be replaced:

    • Your Tire Keeps Deflating: This could be a leak in the tire or could mean your cap is loose. Either way, bring it in to our Service Center and we can have it looked at and patched up right away!
    • Your Tire is Flat: If your tire is too flat to drive on, you'll want to change it with your spare and bring your vehicle in as soon as possible! Driving on a flat tire can damage your vehicle's wheel, spokes, and other important components that make it possible for you to drive.
    • Your Tire's Tread is Low: If your tires have low tread, they're unable to grip the road efficiently and make driving on dirt roads or through weather conditions a much more difficult experience. Use the penny method to determine the tread level of your tires. If the tread is too low, bring your vehicle in and we'll replace your tires.

    Keeping up on your routine maintenance can be the difference between you and a costly repair bill. Learning how to check your oil and tire pressure can help you save money and keep your vehicle running its best for years to come. Getting an oil change or tire replacement soon?
