Bob Maguire Chevrolet and 13,000 residents of Burlington and Camden counties joined together at the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk to fight breast cancer and provide hope to those whose lives have been affected by this disease.
Bob Maguire Chevrolet employees, friends and family raised more than $150 for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on October 23rd, 2011 at Cooper River Park in Pennsauken, NJ. At this year’s walk, the dealership and local community helped to take a step in the right direction toward finding a cure for breast cancer.
“Breast cancer affects our grandmothers, mothers, daughters, sisters and friends, which is why we at Bob Maguire Chevrolet are helping to make strides against breast cancer,” said Henry Staniecki of Bob Maguire Chevrolet. “The American Cancer Society is the official sponsor of birthdays, and as Chevrolet celebrates its 100th birthday this year, we are hoping we can help find a cure for breast cancer so that women can celebrate more birthdays.”
In addition, in October, Bob Maguire Chevrolet is offering customers oil change and brake pad service specials, where they can waive special rebates of $5, $10 and $25 and Chevy will contribute this amount to the American Cancer Society to help fight breast cancer. To learn more about these specials, please visit http://www.BobMaguireChevrolet.com.
The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a noncompetitive, inspirational event that raises awareness and funds to make strides to end breast cancer by finding cures and supporting programs and services for all people facing the disease. Funds raised through Making Strides will help the American Cancer Society save lives and create more birthdays by helping people stay well by taking steps to reduce breast cancer risk or find it early; helping people get well by providing information and support during and after a breast cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking breast cancer research; and by fighting back by encouraging lawmakers to pass laws to defeat breast cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight.
Since 1993, nearly 7 million walkers have raised more than $400 million through Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events. This year, on October 23rd, 2011, at 10:00am at Cooper River Park, Bob Maguire Chevrolet and Burlington/Camden county residents took a step in the right direction toward finding a cure for breast cancer and helping women celebrate more birthdays.
Chevy Cruze is one of the hottest selling compact cars of the year. For the unabridged version of why Cruze is getting so much attention from consumers and trade professionals alike.
Chevy Cruze is quickly rewriting the story of what a compact car should be. It’s turning expectations into great expectations. How? The theme of this success story is one word: more. It gives you more of everything you need and deserve from efficiency to safety, features to styling.
Cruze offers more cargo space*, more safety with best-in-class 10 standard air bags, and more miles per gallon in the Cruze Eco. At 42 MPG**, it’s the best highway mileage of any gas engine in America.
The plot continues with awards and recognition. Cruze is an IIHS 2011 “Top Safety Pick” and received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.1 Cruze was named a “Best Value in America” by Vincentric, a privately held automotive data compilation and analysis firm. Cruze was also one of Ward’s “10 Best Interiors of 2011”.
The ending to this story is anything but predictable. Cruze is a driving experience you won’t expect from a compact. It has race proven Z-link rear suspension that can out corner a 2011 BMW328i. It has a sleek, luxurious look. Delivers an upscale performance. And the Cruze LTZ model is priced quite reasonably.2 The 2011 Chevy Cruze. Not bad for a first edition.

About the Event/American Cancer Society:
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the American Cancer Society’s premier event to raise awareness and funds to fight breast cancer. But it’s more than just the name of a walk – it describes the amazing progress we’re making together to defeat this disease. Since 1993, 4 million walkers have raised more than $280 million through Making Strides. In 2007 alone, nearly 500,000 walkers across the country collected more than $50 million to help fight breast cancer.
The American Cancer Society has a presence in more than 3,400 communities across the country and is the only organization available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help people touched by cancer. Breast cancer is the number one reason people call the Society. When you support Making Strides, you are helping the Society seek better ways to prevent, detect, and treat breast cancer, as well as provide help and hope to people facing the disease.
The Sonic achieved “good” scores in all four types of tests performed, including frontal offset and side impact. It also has standard StabiliTrak electronic stability control, which the institute requires of all vehicles receiving a Top Safety Pick designation.
The IIHS tests vehicles to determine how well they protect occupants in front and side crash tests, in rollovers via a roof strength test, and in simulated rear impacts to evaluate seat and head restraints for protection against neck injuries.
“Only vehicles that perform with the highest level of safety in their class earn the Institute’s top accolade,” said IIHS President Adrian Lund.
In addition to 10 air bags, the Sonic offers a body structure incorporating a single welded side ring unit. More than 60 percent of the vehicle safety cage consists of high-strength steel.
“We developed Sonic to exceed our customers’ expectations of the subcompact market, both in the fun-to-drive performance characteristics and the segment-leading safety features,” said Joaquin Nuño-Whelan, Sonic vehicle line director and vehicle chief engineer. “This designation by IIHS confirms that Chevy customers can buy a subcompact with top safety performance.”
Other Sonic safety features include LATCH system (Lower Anchors and Top tethers for Children);six months of complimentary OnStar Directions and Connections service, including stolen vehicle assistance and automatic crash response, and power-assisted front disc and rear drum brakes with panic brake assist technology.
Sensors that control the deployment of 10 standard airbags are mounted into Sonic’s structure. The sensing and diagnostic module receives data from the car’s sensors and establishes the severity of the impact and whether to deploy the airbags. The additional driver and passenger knee airbags can help reduce injury to lower extremities.
Another standard feature is Sonic’s hill-hold technology, which makes navigating hilly terrain with a manual as effortless as automatic. It’s a luxury-level feature that helps drivers maintain braking control on hills.
With this rating, the Sonic joins the Chevrolet Volt and the Chevrolet Cruze, two other small cars that recently received a 2011 IIHS Top Safety Pick.
The 2012 Camaro ZL1 recently recorded a 7:41.27 lap at the Nurburgring. That is nearly 40 seconds quicker than a Camaro SS tested at the legendary German track in 2009. Measuring 12.9 miles (20.8 km) and including some 154 turns, the Nurburgring’s Nordschleife (“north loop”) is widely considered the world’s most-demanding course.
The Camaro ZL1 used for the lap was a production-intent model, with no performance modifications, driven by Camaro Performance Engineer Aaron Link. The Camaro ZL1 recorded its time of 7:41.27 from a flying start.
“The Nurburgring is unlike any track in the world,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. “Each lap includes fast straights, sweeping off-camber turns, hairpin corners, and elevation changes. In order to do well on the ‘Ring, the car has to do everything well – including acceleration, braking, and lateral grip. Breaking an eight-minute lap in a 2+2 production car is a tremendous accomplishment, and validates that the Camaro ZL1 will truly be track-ready from the showroom.”
More than 30 percent of the Camaro SS was re-engineered for the Camaro ZL1, which arrives at U.S. dealerships in the first quarter of 2012.
The Camaro ZL1 features a supercharged 6.2L “LSA” engine SAE-rated at 580 horsepower (432 kW) and 556 lb.-ft. of torque (754 Nm) – making it the most-powerful production Camaro ever. Power is delivered to the rear wheels by either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
The ZL1’s power is complemented by exclusive performance technologies, including the third-generation of Magnetic Ride suspension and Performance Traction Management.
Additional track-ready features standard on the Camaro ZL1 include coolers for the engine, transmission and rear differential, cooling ducts for the Brembo brakes, and a high-performance fuel system delivers fuel to the LSA engine under any performance-driving condition.
“The ZL1’s full capability is evident at the Nurburgring,” said Link. “One of the best moments is coming through ‘Fuchsröhre’, or Foxhole. The ZL1 accelerates at an unbelievable rate down through the tunnel of trees, and into a sweeping left-hand corner flat out in fifth gear. You have to have an extremely well-mannered, confidence-inspiring car to take any corner at 160 mph without lifting off the throttle – and the ZL1 was just brilliant.”
