    Michigan Begins Construction on Self-Driving Vehicle Test Facility - 12/02/2016

    BAY CITY, Mich. –– State of Michigan officials have officially begun construction on a new self-driving vehicle test facility in Willow Run on the old grounds of the famed Arsenal of Democracy factory during World War II. The nonprofit, American Center for Mobility (ACM) will serve as a national proving ground for connected and autonomous vehicles.

    Michigan Begins Construction on Self-Driving Vehicle Test Facility

    Automakers are excited to use the facility now, as John Maddox, ACM’s CEO, claims to have received 45 letters of support from OEMs, major suppliers, and others who are interested in using the facility. General Motors, Ford and Toyota have all expressed enthusiasm for the project, and the engineering group SAE International has already signed a memorandum of understanding to use the facility in hopes of creating and evaluating standards for new transportation technology.

    A portion of the facility will be dedicated to highway-style testing of self-driving vehicles, and is expected to open as early as December 2017. While other portions of the proving ground are to become operational in gradual phases. Parts of the highway loop will incorporate the use of public roads, and a 700-foot curved tunnel will be built as part of the test track.

    Michigan Begins Construction on Self-Driving Vehicle Test Facility

    Michigan's government leaders have begun construction on a self-driving vehicle test facility where a factory once stood that built B-24 bombers at the rate of a plane per hour. Officials hope that the facility will ensure that the state stays relevant in the auto industry for decades to come.

    18. Music - Perhaps life's greatest treasure.
    19. Karaoke - SWEEEETTT CAROLINE! BAH, BAH, BAHHH!

    21. The Detroit Lions playing on Thanksgiving day - They may not win, but they will be playing.
    22. The National Dog Show - The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade has nothing on the dog show.

    Deer Season Driving Tips - 11/08/2016

    BAY CITY, Mich., –– During this time of year we see a substantial increase in deer related car accidents as hunting season gets underway and deer breeding season peaks in November. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, rural areas and roads with a speed limit of 55 MPH or higher are most likely to be the scene for deadly deer crashes. It's important to stay aware no matter what road you are on, and with a few simple deer season driving tips you can avoid becoming another deer-crash statistic.

    Deer Season Driving Tips


    1. Deer are generally most active during dusk and dawn hours, so be alert during your morning and evening commutes to and from work and home.

    2. Deer usually travel in groups, so where there is one, there will likely be more. If you see a deer make sure to slow down, and keep an eye out for more since they will most likely be nearby. If one deer crosses the road in front of you, watch for others who may be following behind it. 

    3. Staying alert, contstantly scnning the road, and utilizing your high beams when there is no oncoming traffic can help you spot a deer that may be lurking near the side of the road. If you see any illuminated eyes or dark shadows, slow down and be prepared to stop.   Be especially cautious when passing hedges, treelines or foliage.

    4. One of the worst, and most dangerous, things you can do to avoid hitting a deer is swerve. It may be your natural reflex but chances are, you will end up hitting another vehicle, tree, or other object which can be a more serious collision than hitting the deer. The best thing you can do is to brake firmly, stay in your lane, and hold the steering wheel steady until you come to a controlled stop.

    5. If you do get into an accident with a deer, make sure to turn on your emergency flashers and pull over to the side of the road so that other vehicles can see you. Stay in your vehicle, and never approach the deer.

    6. Last but not least, remember that in your Chevrolet vehicle, you can press the OnStar button for assistance in any type of situation.

    We want all of our friends and neighbors to stay safe this season as deer activity nears its peak with our deer season driving tips. If you want the peace of mind knowing your vehicle will protect you through any season, come see us to learn more about all of the extensive safety systems that General Motors has to offer. If you have unfortunately hit a deer, and need collision service, we can help fix the damage and get you back on the road in no time. You can ensure your car runs safe by taking care of routine maintenance. We would be happy to take care of all your auto service needs.

    Graff Gives Back to the Delta College Possible Dream Program through A Chocolate Affair - 11/01/2016

    BAY CITY, Mich.––Halloween has passed, but we're still talking about chocolate. Although it's not the wrapped Halloween variety we're discussing, it's the chocolate-based fundraising event held in Sagniaw to benefit the Possible Dream Program at Delta College. This program is centered around making students dreams happen through opportunities they never thought possible for themselves. We're all about raising money for local organizations that do wonderful things in our community and that stand for great causes. We'd like you to join us in raising money as Graff Gives Back to the Delta College Possible Dream Program through A Chocolate Affair!

    Graff Gives Back to the Delta College Possible Dream Program through A Chocolate Affair


    The Delta College Possible Dream Program promotes cultural awareness, academic achievement, and higher education to academically promising students who are at risk due to socioeconomic challenges. There are around one hundred middle school students from the Bay, Midland, and Saginaw counties who are selected for the program each year by self and peer nominations. Delta College aims to assist with the college admission process including financial aid, exposing students to higher education culture, provide STEM focused programming, test prep, study skill workshops, and so much more! The Chocolate Affair event is what provides the funding for all the aforementioned.

    During the month of November, there are a few things you can do with Graff Bay City that'll help benefit the Delta College Possible Dream Program and it's fundraising event, A Chocolate Affair. You can stop in for auto service or purchase a car, at our dealership throughout the month of November and a portion of your costs will go to A Chocolate Affair. For each vehicle serviced, Graff Bay City will donate $.25, and for each vehicle purchased, Graff Bay City will donate $10.

    Whether it's a simple oil change, wiper blade installation, or tire rotation or a more complex auto service that you need, we'd be happy to take care of it for you and donate to A Chocolate Affair. We're also here to help you find the car of your dreams that meets your needs and budget! You can start shopping online, or stop by for a test drive. Again, each car purchased is worth a $10 donation to the Delta College Possible Dream Program. Save a little time and schedule online, or give us a call to set up your appointment.

    Halloween Safety Tips - 10/28/2016

    BAY CITY, Mich.––It's the spookiest time of the year again! When little ghouls and goblins will be running around at night collecting candy house by house. At Graff Bay City, our number one priority is your safety, which goes well beyond driving your Chevy. Follow these Halloween safety tips to make sure everyone gets home safe (and with tons of candy!).


    Halloween Safety Tips


    If You're Walking...

    • Before heading out, instruct your children to always wait to cross the street with you or another adult. Additionally, always use the designated crosswalks and observe the traffic signals. 
    • Be wary of oversized costumes. It will be dark out and your child may trip on their costume if it's too big and baggy.
    • Be careful with masks, as they often obstruct vision. See if you can convince your child to use face paint instead!
    • Try attaching reflective tape to your child's costume. Or, give them a flashlight or glow sticks to carry, making them more visible to cars.
    • Also as a general rule, children under the age of 12 should not be unsupervised. 

    Halloween Safety Tips

    If You're Driving...

    • In general, we recommend driving 5 mph below the speed limit in neighborhoods. 
    • Make sure to use turn signals to communicate your intentions to other drivers. It will make navigating a busy neighborhood much easier for everyone. 
    • Watch for vehicles in front of you. Cars will be stopping intermittently in the street to drop kids off at houses or pick them up. Also be cautious of passing a stopped vehicle as kids may be exiting abruptly and not in your line of sight.
    • Watch for kids running in to the road. Young, candy crazed kids may be running around and accidentally run into the street. They also may be standing by or on the curb, or in medians. So best to be cautious.
    • Even before sunset, turn on your headlights. It will help illuminate the street and sidewalks. 
    • Put down the phone! You should never text and drive, but on Halloween night you especially need to avoid distracting yourself. 
    • Give the right of way to groups of trick-or-treaters at intersections and cross walks.

    Make sure everyone can enjoy their candy and trick-or-treating this year by observing our Halloween safety tips. They will help to keep the night spooky and safe! Join us for the SVSU Trunk-or-Treat event happening Friday, October 28th for a weather-proof, fun, and safe trick-or-treating experience. See our Facebook event for all the details. You can be safe all season long by taking care of routine and seasonal vehicle maintenance.

    Chevrolet Reveals Blue Line Concept Vehicles Before SEMA Show - 10/21/2016

    BAY CITY, Mich.––The Blue Line of Chevrolet accessories was made to bring next-level sporty style, performance, and function to Chevy’s latest vehicles. Chevrolet has just revealed Blue Line concept vehicles before the SEMA show, happening in Las Vegas Nov. 1-4. The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu and 2017 Chevrolet Cruze RS Hatch are to showcase the Blue Line accessories, and the next level of personalization that Chevrolet will be offering customers alongside the newest Special Edition packages.

    The Blue Line concept vehicles for the SEMA show are named such for a reason. Blue tinted windows and 18-inch slate blue metallic wheels make a strong presence against the Genesis White exterior. This concept line of models is particularly unique because all production and concept accessories were developed alongside the vehicles, meaning they were designed specifically by the same team that created the vehicles themselves. This type of integration compliments the sporty aesthetic of the Blue Line Chevrolet Malibu and Chevrolet Cruze RS Hatch.


    2017 Chevy Cruze RS Hatch Blue Line
     

    Chevrolet Reveals Blue Line Concept Vehicles Before SEMA Show


    • Chrome grille insert
    • Suspension lowering kit
    • Performance brake package
    • Performance exhaust system
    • Performance air intake system

    All features of the 2017 Chevy Cruze RS Hatch are intended to bring a sport functionality to the Chevy lineup, as well as a stylish option for buyers. New vehicle warranties remain intact when a Blue Line vehicle is equipped with accessories and performance parts. The Blue Line models are just 2 of approximately 20 other vehicles that will be on display at the SEMA Show.



    2017 Chevy Malibu Blue Line 


    Chevrolet Reveals Blue Line Concept Vehicles Before SEMA Show

    • Black bow tie emblems 
    • Black grille insert 
    • Premium metal badging on floor liners 
    • Suspension lowering kit 
    • Sport pedal kit 
    • Illuminated doorsills 
    • Ground effects kit with rear diffuser 
    • Rear spoiler 

    A new 2.0L turbocharged engine will be available with the 2017 Chevy Malibu with 250 horsepower and a nine-speed automatic transmission. You'll also enjoy a more responsive drive with the suspension lowering kit. For more style, polished exhaust tips, and tinted headlamps and tail lamps are also available. All optional kits are designed to provide a sportier ride and overall look.

    The SEMA Show takes place next month and is a great chance for Chevrolet to show what they've got. The Chevrolet Blue Line Concept Models offer a next generation style of personalization to drivers that you won't find anywhere else. If you're looking for a car tailored to your taste, stop by our dealership! We'd love to help you find the perfect car, crossover, SUV, or truck. Whether it's finding a model with a specific trim or special package like the Midnight Edition Equinox, or you want to pick out Chevrolet Accessories or custom graphics, we can help get you a car personal to your taste.

    Hank Graff Chevy is located at 3636 Wilder Road, Bay City, MI 48706 and we can help you find the perfect vehicle for your weekend getaway! For more information on Hank Graff Chevrolet, or for any questions call us at (989) 684-4411 or visit our website: www.GraffBayCity.com.

    Kids Can Trick-or-Treat Safely at the 8th Annual SVSU Trunk-or-Treat Around The Track - 10/12/2016

    BAY CITY, Mich.––We're all for having a great time and celebrating one of the most fun holidays throughout the year, Halloween! While it is a scary-fun holiday, there can be some set backs to having a good time like terrible weather (because it's October in Michigan), sending your kids out into an unfamiliar neighborhood, and those gosh darn belly aches from all that delicious sugar-laden candy. We've got a solution. Kids can trick-or-treat safely at the 8th Annual SVSU Trunk-Or-Treat Around The Track.

    Kids Can Trick-or-Treat Safely at the 8th Annual SVSU Trunk-or-Treat Around The Track


    The entire event is indoors, which means it's completely weather proof. So, you won't have to worry about fitting your child's costume over a snow suit! There's even space for waiting to enter the arena inside the Ryder Center corridors. The arena will include 25 trunk stations, which is about a small neighborhood's worth of trick-or-treating opportunities.

    Did we mention, this trunk-or-treat event is entirely free?!
    All this fun will be happening on Friday October 28th, from 5pm-7pm at Saginaw Valley State University at the Ryder Center Arena. 

    This event will also solve the candy overload problem. At the 8th Annual SVSU Trunk-Or-Treat event, stations will be handing out healthy foods donated by Meijer. Plus, the SVSU varsity sport teams will be hosting sport-specific activities to get all that spooky energy out! Kids always come home tired and with a belly full of healthy treats, which is always a bonus for a great night's sleep.

    There are even more benefits to the event like the costume contest, which your kids won't be able to experience by trick-or-treating in the neighborhood. You can also rest assured that your kids will be safe at the Trunk-Or-Treat Around The Track as they will be surrounded by caring community members in a safe and fun environment. Each trunk will come from us at Graff Bay City, and we deeply care about the members of our community!

    We hope you'll join us for a great time, where the kids can trick-or-treat safely, at the 8th Annual SVSU Trunk-Or-Treat Around The Track! Don't forget to RSVP on Facebook. Wherever you are and whatever you do this Halloween season, we want you and your family to be safe.

    BAY CITY, Mich.––We're finally at the tipping point of the fall season. October has begun. Halloween and fall activities, food, and decor are in full swing, but there's something much more important on the table. October is also famously known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Graff Bay City is here to help contribute.

    During the month of October, there are a few things you can do with Graff Bay City that'll help benefit The Pink Fund. You can stop in for auto service, purchase a car, or make a donation to the hungry little piggies in our dealership. For each vehicle serviced, Graff Bay City will donate $.25, and for each vehicle purchased, Graff Bay City will donate $10. You can contribute personally by dropping a donation into one of our pink piggy banks. You'll find these little piggies in the New Car Showroom and at the Certified Service Counter.

At Graff Bay City, we want to make accepting those applications easier and make those suffering from breast cancer feel the hope and relief they so deserve and we need your help in doing so!

    The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox Has Been Unveiled - 09/29/2016

    The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox Has Been Unveiled

    BAY CITY, Mich.––The Chevrolet Equinox is one popular crossover vehicle in the U.S. and for many reasons. While the design and features have changed slightly year over year since 2005, the 2018 model is a game changer. The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox has been unveiled with a brand new exterior design, decreased size, refreshed and refined interior, lighter weight, and more. Let's review what the 2018 Chevy Equinox crossover will be bringing to the table.

    The new exterior fits well within Chevrolet's lineup with the latest global design cues you see in the Chevy Cruze, Malibu, and Volt. Overall the 2018 Equinox looks more muscular and has lines sculpted to match the extensive wind-tunnel testing for a more aerodynamic shape. All models will sport chrome trim, like the new Malibu, and running daytime lamps and LED projector beam headlights.

    The interior commands attention, but allows the driver to see the road even more clearly thanks to the more down and away dashboard. There are also improved interior touches, like the denim style seat fabric to provide higher quality and higher durability, and better ergonomics.

    The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox Has Been Unveiled

    The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox will come with a full suite of safety features you and all your passengers will enjoy including:

    -Rear Cross Traffic Alert
    -Surround Vision
    -Forward Collision Alert
    -Following Distance Indicator
    -Lane Keep Assist
    -Lane Departure Warning
    -Lane Change Alert
    -Side Bling Zone Alert
    -Safety Alert Seat
    -Rear Seat Reminder
    -Teen Driver

    For those searching for more comprehensive options with their compact crossover, the 2018 Equinox has it. The crossover will be offered in turbocharged and diesel. The Equinox is the first Chevrolet vehicle with a multi-engine powertrain lineup, all turbocharged. This allows drivers to have a large range in performance and efficiency options. You can get the 2018 Equinox in 1.5L turbo, 1.6L turbo diesel, or 2.0L turbo. It's also overall lighter leading to better efficiency overall.

    The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox has been unveiled and will go on sale officially in the first quarter of 2017. While this model Equinox will include improved performance, efficiency, and capability, you can check out the 2016 & 2017 models to get a taste for the feel of this compact SUV. We want to help our customers find the perfect vehicle at a price suited to their budget. So, if a used Equinox is more in your range, we can help! You can shop our inventory at anytime online, and review all the features Chevrolet vehicles have to offer on our model overview pages.

The Midnight Editions look as the name implies with a black exterior, special black features like the bowtie and wheels, and will offer some features the regular trim levels don't. The Suburban and Tahoe will be offered in the Z1 Midnight package and the LT Midnight package.

    The Z71 Midnight package (first Tahoe picture above) will include:

    “Our SUV customers have shown a considerable appetite for specialty vehicles,” said Mike Weidman, marketing and advertising manager, Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe. “The Midnight Editions allow us to further deliver on the premium expectation that our customers already have for these class-leading full-size SUVs.”
    These 2017 models in the Midnight Edition will be available late 2016 and will include all the latest technology features, like Chevrolet MyLink and Teen Driver. These SUVs are great candidates for getting the special edition treatment, thanks to their rich history and success. In fact, the Suburban is the longest-running nameplate in automotive history (since 1935), and the Tahoe is America's best selling full-size SUV! Not to mention sales have been up significantly year-over for both of these SUVs. The Suburban is up 30% in sales from 2015, while the Tahoe is up 18%.

    So if you're looking for a SUV with features that'll blow you out of the water, backed by the reliability of Chevrolet, the Tahoe and Suburban are vehicles you'll want to check out.

    Tips to Keep Your Carpool Safe This School Year - 09/06/2016

    BAY CITY, Mich.––It's easy for safety checks to get lost in the mix of homework, new school schedules, sports, errands, and everything else that comes along with the season. However easy safety checks go missing, they're one of the most important things to do at the beginning of the school year, especially if you'll be partaking in a carpool. Not only are you, as a driver, responsible for your own students, but others as well. Follow our tips to keep your carpool safe this school year, and don't hesitate to ask us at Graff Bay City for help.

    Tips to Keep Your Carpool Safe This School Year


    1. Have your brakes inspected at your next oil change

    Your brakes are one of the most important safety components, so having them checked at your next oil change at Graff Bay City will ensure you have the stopping power needed in any situation. Some signs you can look out for if your brakes need service include: a squealing noise when applying brakes, soft or spongy feeling brakes, shaky steering wheel when stopping, and a visibly worn brake pad.



    2. Put on new wiper blades and top off your washer fluid

    You can do this step right at home with store bought wipers and washer fluid, but we can take care of it at your next oil change if that's more convenient for you! With new wiper blades and a full washer fluid tank, you'll be prepared for any type of weather or dirt that hits your windshield Remember, your wiper blades and washer fluid are there to help you see clearly and can save your life in some emergency situations where visibility is down.


    3. Check your tires for damage and inflate them to the recommended level

    Doing a basic check for visible damage, like bulging or uneven tread wear, on your tires is a great first step to safe tires. Take it a step further and make sure you have properly inflated tires. You can find the suggested PSI for your tires in your owner's manual or on the sticker on the inside of your driver's side door. Check the PSI level of your tires while they're cold, and adjust as needed. This will help with your vehicle's efficiency and reduce the risk of a popped tire.



    4. Have your oil changed every 3,000-5,000 miles

    As simple as this may sound, having your oil changed every 3,000-5,000 miles will help your car run its best and eliminate the risk of an overheated engine. Dirty or old oil that has broken down can cause your engine's parts to wear prematurely and can potentially cause your engine to overheat, which can lead to expensive repairs down the road.



    5. Check all your external lights and their function

    This check takes two people to complete, but it takes less than 5 minutes. Run through each light individually by having one person sit in the car turning the lights on and off, and the other checking the exterior as the lights go on and off. Make a mark of anything that isn't functioning correctly. Your lights are important because they allow other drivers and pedestrians to see you, and are especially important on foggy, rainy, or snowy days.


    Use these tips to keep your carpool safe this school year, and to keep your car running smoothly! The routine maintenance pages on our website are there to provide knowledge and understanding of important components on your vehicle. We also offer more vehicle maintenance tips on our Service FAQ page. If you have more specific questions about your vehicle’s maintenance, then contact our Graff Bay City Service Center. Our team of ASE Certified technicians is here to help you and your carpool group get back on the road safe and sound. Schedule your next service center appointment today and have your carpool vehicle inspected.
