Chevy Commercials

Have you noticed Chevrolet’s newest TV campaign? It’s known as “Under the Blue Arch” and features a welcoming Chevy dealership with an amusing, yet well-informed, staff. Not only has it been a hit on the airwaves, it’s now gaining popularity on YouTube and Facebook.

The idea behind this entertaining and unexpected promotional approach is to connect with you, our customers, in an honest and inviting way. We brought this concept to life by assembling a funny, memorable cast of characters that develop over time similar to TV sitcoms such as “The Office”.

So far the feedback has been impressive. People not only enjoy the humor and engaging storylines, they really appreciate the fact that the features and benefits of the Chevy lineup are still the center of attraction.

The online followers keep growing too. YouTube videos of the campaign have been viewed over 5.8 million times. The “Under the Blue Arch” Facebook page already has close to 46,000 “likes”. Check it out for yourself: https://www.facebook.com/UndertheBlueArch.

Vehicle Care for Summer Driving from Bob Maguire Chevrolet

Driving in hot conditions presents different challenges from the cold and ice. Yet maintaining your vehicle during the summer months is still a good idea for optimal performance and overall safety.

Whether you’re off to the beach a few miles away or taking a day trip to the amusement park one state over, the summer heat can destroy your battery, stress your car’s cooling system and dramatically increase tire pressure. Before you head to your next sunny destination, here’s a checklist to keep your vehicle summer ready:

Hot weather requires extra lubrication for the engine so check your oil. Let your vehicle run for a few minutes then look at the dipstick. It should be at a sufficient level and appear clean. If you think you need an oil change stop by Bob Maguire Chevrolet. They will make sure your oil is fresh and the level is where it should be.

Underinflated tires run the risk of a blowout and overinflated ones make hydroplaning more likely in rainy weather so make sure your tires, including your spare, are properly inflated. Use a tire-pressure gauge to check your tires to ensure they are inflated to the level recommended in your owner’s manual—NOT the pressure range listed on the tire sidewall. Properly inflated tires can also increase your vehicle’s fuel efficiency by up to 3%–saving you money down the road.

Having your vehicle constantly exposed to the blistering sun can cause its paint to fade, going from new car shine to dull city in no time flat. To avoid sun damage wax your car on a consistence basis. Or, if the damage has been done, use a rubbing compound and some elbow grease to buff it out.

Stop by Bob Maguire Chevrolet for a quick tune-up especially before a long trip. Our qualified Chevy technicians will examine your air conditioning and cooling systems to make sure they are operating correctly. Replace filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) and worn windshield wipers. Check your transmission, inspect your brakes and test your battery and lighting system.

After a thorough 27-Point Inspection of your Chevy vehicle, you’ll be ready to hit the road in confidence no matter how hot it gets or how long it takes to get there.

Have an enjoyable and safe summer!

Bob Maguire Chevy Does the Electric Slide

Most people don’t feel like dancing when they hear about the predicted surge in gas prices. But in a Chevy Volt, you’ll be able to boogie past more fuel stations than you think.

With the possibility of gas prices rising dramatically, you can literally burn through money in seconds. To help ease the pain at the pump, check out the fuel-efficient Volt, one of ten Chevy models offering 30 MPG highway or better.

Chevy Volt is the first electric car that runs on more than electricity. For less than the cost of a latte, you can fully charge your Volt and drive an EPA-estimated 35 miles gas–free. On a full charge and full tank of gas you’ll be able to drive up to 375 total miles.

How is this possible? Volt has two sources of energy to tap into. There’s the electrical system that includes the rechargeable battery and a backup generating system that uses gas to generate electricity.

Volt was engineered to be as efficient as possible. With everything from a gauge that helps you to optimize your battery efficiency to low-rolling resistance Goodyear® Assurance Fuel Max tires that allow Volt to get up to one more all-electric mile when compared to ordinary tires.

NHTSA Press Reslease: Chevy VOLT Fire Probe is CLOSED

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released the following statement today regarding the conclusion of its safety defect investigation into the post-crash fire risk of Chevy Volts (PE11037):

Today, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration closed its safety defect investigation into the potential risk of fire in Chevy Volts that have been involved in a serious crash. Opened on November 25, the agency’s investigation has concluded that no discernible defect trend exists and that the vehicle modifications recently developed by General Motors reduce the potential for battery intrusion resulting from side impacts.

NHTSA remains unaware of any real-world crashes that have resulted in a battery-related fire involving the Chevy Volt or any other electric vehicle. NHTSA continues to believe that electric vehicles show great promise as a safe and fuel-efficient option for American drivers. However, as the reports released in conjunction with the closure of the investigation today indicate, fires following NHTSA crash tests of the vehicle and its battery components—and the innovative nature of this emerging technology—led the agency to take the unusual step of opening a safety defect investigation in the absence of data from real-world incidents.

Based on the available data, NHTSA does not believe that Chevy Volts or other electric vehicles pose a greater risk of fire than gasoline-powered vehicles. Generally all vehicles have some risk of fire in the event of a serious crash. However, electric vehicles have specific attributes that should be made clear to consumers, the emergency response community, and tow truck operators and storage facilities. Recognizing these considerations, NHTSA has developed interim guidance—with the assistance of the National Fire Protection Association, the Department of Energy, and others—to increase awareness and identify appropriate safety measures for these groups. The agency expects this guidance will help inform the ongoing work by NFPA, DOE, and vehicle manufacturers to educate the emergency response community, law enforcement officers, and others about electric vehicles.

**A special thank you to the NFTSA with this press release!

Chevrolet VOLT – “A VOLT Above The Rest!”

We here are Bob Maguire Chevrolet are all so excited about receiving a 2011 Chevrolet VOLT in the first quarter of 2011! It has been a long waited and anticipated journey to this amazing electric car – but, it is a journey worth while!

2011 Chevy VOLT

Did you know that the VOLT’s Voltec 240V Home Charging Unit can charge a depleted VOLT battery in only 4 hours?! That is 6 hours faster than the other option (the standard 120V charge cord that plugs into a household outlet). This is all thanks to Chevy’s supplier of the charging stations, SPX Service Solutions. They are able to create stations that cost $490 before installation, $1,475 for installation and unit.

In addition to Chevrolet’s Voltec unit, SPX will sell a variety of home charging stations and manage all aspects of installation for Volt owners, including the home survey, installation, permitting, Department of Energy and utility coordination, and identification of available programs and incentives for reduced charging rates.
