    What's New with Chevrolet? - February 2017 - 02/13/2017

    BAY CITY, Mich. ––Chevrolet has continued to embolden its brand after a strong showing at the North American International Auto Show in January. The bowtie brand has recently debuted a new vehicle series at the Chicago auto show and had its electric automotive marvel win yet another prestigious award among other things. Chevy shows no signs of slowing down in 2017 and will continue to innovate and make strides in the industry. Read on to learn more about what’s new with Chevrolet!

    2017 Chevrolet Bolt wins Motorweek Driver's Choice Award - Best Car of the Year

    The Chevrolet Bolt continues its winning ways after taking home the Best Car of the Year award from Motorweek recently. The 2017 Bolt EV was also named the 2017 North American Car of the Year, 2017 Motor Trend® Car of the Year, 2017 Green Car Journal Green Car of the Year, and was listed among Car and Driver's 2017 10Best Cars list.



    Chevrolet Debuts Redline Special Edition Series

    Chevrolet premiered the Redline special edition series at the Chicago Auto Show recently. The Redline series is the broadest cross-portfolio special edition ever offered by the brand. All Redline vehicles are equipped with black wheels featuring distinct red hash marks, black nameplates with a red outline, blacked-out grilles, and black Chevrolet bowtie logos. Additionally, each vehicle also has other specialized design elements.

    The Chevrolet Redline series spans across nine vehicles in the car, truck and crossover segments including:
    • Cruze LT (sedan and hatchback)
    • Camaro LT/SS (coupe and convertible)
    • Colorado LT
    • Equinox LT
    • Malibu LT
    • Trax LT

    Chevrolet Owners Consumed 4,220 Terabytes of Data in 2016

    Chevrolet owners in the U.S. love to use their data! Last year, they used an incredible 4,220,684 gigabytes (or 4,220 terabytes) of data in 2016. This comes as an increase of nearly 200 percent of 2015's usage. Tahoe and Suburban owners deserve the lion share of the "blame", accounting for the largest increase in usage, using three-and-a-half times more data than a year ago.



    Chevrolet Announces 2017 Colorado ZR2 Pricing

    The high-performance, off-road ZR2 trim level will launch this spring for the 2017 model year with a starting price of $40,995 MSRP. Fans of the brand and auto enthusiasts alike have been excited about this new midsize pickup since its preview at SEMA 2016.

    Winter Car Care & Vehicle Maintenance Tips at Graff Bay City - 01/11/2017

    BAY CITY, Mich. –– At Graff Bay City, we understand that buying or leasing a vehicle is a big investment, and it’s important to keep that investment in tip-top shape. With winter in full swing now, there are many damaging elements that can impact the condition of your vehicle like road salt, snow, and frigid temperatures. There is also your safety to consider! What happens if your car breaks down, or won't start, exposing you to the elements? What if you slide on the icy roads into a dangerous position?  If you haven’t yet taken any precautions to prepare your vehicle for the winter season, it’s time for some proper winter vehicle maintenance! On our website, our service section covers winter car care tips and vehicle maintenance at Graff Bay City. These best practices will help you keep your car running better and longer for seasons to come! 

    Winter Car Care & Vehicle Maintenance Tips at Graff Bay City


    On our new Winter Car Care Page, you’ll find tips on –
    • Tires: Find out why it’s important to understand the value winter tires offer. Winter tires are designed to handle winter roads specifically, and with the roads being slushy and icy, the thicker treads will help keep you from sliding around. Click the link to learn more about winter tires.
    • Batteries: In general, car batteries normally last around two to three years. However, freezing temperatures can be hard on your battery life and make it more difficult to start your engine in the morning after a cold night. So, it’s crucial to be aware of your vehicle's battery life and replace it when necessary. Learn more about your car battery by clicking the link.
    • Brakes: Your vehicle's brakes keep you safe through every season, but during the winter they are especially important. In winter weather it can take your vehicle a longer distance to break on snow and ice, so making sure your brakes work properly is key. You don't want to be the car that slides through an intersection or into a ditch. Follow the link to read more about your brakes.
    • Oil Changes: Your engine’s performance depends on regular oil changes, and when your oil is changed on a regular basis, you help extend the life of your vehicle. In the winter, it’s particularly important to keep up with oil changes because the frigid temperatures can have a negative effect on the oil, making it less effective at keeping your engine components from overheating and warping. For a list of signs your vehicle needs an oil change, follow the link.
    • Wiper Blades: You need a clear view to drive in any season, but your vehicle's wiper blades become especially important in the winter due to debris from snow, salt, and ice. Harsh winter conditions can wear on your wiper blades, so click the link to find out how to know if you need to replace your wiper blades.

    Winter weather and the driving conditions it creates can take a serious toll on your car if you’re not properly prepared. To ensure that your vehicle will keep you safe and sound all season long, visit our Graff Bay City winter car care and vehicle maintenance pages for more information. Each page will provide you with the best winter car care tips for your tires, battery, brakes, oil changes, and wiper blades. If you’d like to schedule a service appointment for help on any of these topics, you can do that too. We’re always ready to help you at Graff Bay City.

The Tri-City Sports Complex is an invaluable resource to our local athletes, and one that they should all be able to use to their benefit.

    Graff Bay City will be supporting local student athletes and Operation: Step It Up by donating $10 from every vehicle sale and $0.25 from every vehicle service transaction. Proceeds from oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacements, and any other auto service needs you have will now benefit middle school and high school students learning the value of hard work, dedication, and teamwork all while getting to experience top-of-the-line facilities.

    9 Tips to Keep Your New Year's Resolution on Track - 01/05/2017

    BAY CITY, Mich. –– It's 2017! You've probably got a New Year's Resolution in mind, even if you have vocalized it yet. If you're serious about it, it's a long road to success and December 31st, and we have nine tips to keep your New Year's resolution on track. Believe in yourself and you can make it happen!

    9 Tips to Keep Your New Year's Resolution on Track

    Be Realistic - Make sure that your goals are attainable and realistic. Cutting a bad habit completely out of your life, cold turkey, is not likely going to work. Think about what you really know you can accomplish, start with that as your goal, and then expand on it from there.

    Outline You Plan - Preparedness is you best ally to following through with your resolution. In correlation with being realistic about your resolution, break it up into segments or steps. Make the mountain into a bunch of molehills that you can climb each day.

    Talk About It - Tell your friends and family about your resolution! They will help support you and keep you accountable to it.

    Track Your Progress - Sometimes it's hard to see your actual progress as it's happening. Track the days, and weeks, and incremental steps that you have reached in your pursuit of achieving your goal.

    Reward Yourself - Have a treat or get yourself something nice to celebrate the accomplishment on making through a certain amount of time. This will begin to develop a positive reinforcement to your new habit. Also, to help keep your resolution, don't reward yourself with something that will contradict it.

    Don't Be Too Hard On Yourself - You're going to good days and bad days. Sometimes it will be a breeze and other times you'll want to abandon your resolution. Like we mentioned above, the best way to stay positive is to track the incremental steps you accomplish and to celebrate them.

    Make a "Pros" and "Cons" List What happens if you succeed? What happens if you don't? This list will help keep you motivated during the roughest days of keeping your resolution.

    Stay the Course - It has been scientifically proven that it takes us 21 days for something to become a habit, and six months for it to become part of our personality.

    Keep Trying - If you find yourself breaking your resolution, just dust yourself off and get back on track. One misstep (or a handful) does not mean your entire year/resolution is ruined. There's no resolution police to keep you from trying again.

    Consult these nine tips to keep your New Year's resolution on track and you'll be on track to achieve your goal! Also, make sure you're prepared for the cold weather and icy winter roads ahead by completing your Winter Car Care routine at our Graff Chevrolet Bay City Service Center.

    Chevrolet Teen Driver Technology at Graff Chevrolet Bay City - 12/09/2016

    BAY CITY, Mich. –– Parents can't help but worry about the safety of their children, but perhaps most especially when they first get their driver's license. Teen drivers are inexperienced, play loud music, are often accompanied by distracting passengers, and speed at a higher rate than other drivers. But as a parent, what can you really do about it if you're not in the car with them? Chevrolet Teen Driver Technology, now available at Graff Chevrolet in Bay City, is the solution. It's a comprehensive technology system that will monitor the driving habits of your young motorist and help to keep them safe.

    We all know that teenagers love playing their music loudly, but unfortunately it can be a big distraction on the road. The Teen Driver technology now allows you to put a volume limit on the vehicle's radio, allowing you to keep the noise at an acceptable level. Also, the music will automatically mute until the front safety belts are fastened.

    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.
