Top 5 Reasons to Get a New Chevy in 2018

Drivers tend to get attached to their vehicles. After all, your vehicle is something you use every day, and it’s a place where you’ve made plenty of memories. However, there comes a time when you need to break up with an old vehicle that’s dragging you down. Maybe the gas mileage is poor, maybe the repairs are breaking the bank or maybe the safety features aren’t adequate. The New Year is the time to do it!

These 5 reasons ought to give you enough of an excuse to ditch your old ride for a new Chevrolet.

1. Your vehicle’s repairs are exceeding its value. It often seems easier to repair an old vehicle than buy a new one, but here at Classic Chevrolet, we make purchasing your new vehicle easy and affordable. Stop throwing money (which you’ll never get back) into a beater that continues to decrease in value.

2. The mileage is high. High mileage probably means you’ve taken good care of your vehicle, but it also means costly repairs are just around the corner.

3. Safety features are limited. Older cars certainly have fewer safety features than newer ones, and that can put you and your loved ones in danger every time you get behind the wheel. Come talk to us at Classic Chevrolet to get into a safer, more reliable vehicle for an unbelievably affordable price.

4. Your family doesn’t want to be seen in it. They say not to judge a book by its cover, but if your family doesn’t want to be seen in your vehicle, it may be time to get a new one.

5. You’re spending way too much on gas. Every year, Chevy vehicles are getting increasingly fuel efficient, and you could be saving big bucks. Chevy offers a wide selection of extremely affordable, fuel efficient vehicles to help you start your 2018 budget in the right direction.

5 Reasons Why You Should Get a New Camaro This Christmas

Not that you need much reason to own one of the strongest, fastest, and funnest cars on the road this Christmas, but there are certainly some good reasons to own one. The 2018 Camaro is better than ever and it’s available right now at Classic Chevrolet. Come in and test drive it today and we’re sure you’ll agree that the Camaro is the car for you.

1. It’s Affordable

The 2018 Camaro won’t set your bank account back as much as other cars in its class. Starting out under $26,000, a 2018 Camaro might be more in your reach than you think. Not to mention that the base model comes with plenty of standard entertainment, performance, and safety features.

2. It’s Head Turning

There’s no denying that the Camaro is a great looking car. If you want to turn heads wherever you go, you need to get behind the wheel of a Camaro. With its retro-futuristic good looks, distinctive headlights, and muscular bearing, it commands respect on the road.

3. It’s Powerful

With a couple of powerful engine options, including the available V-8, and either an automatic gearbox or six-speed manual transmission, the 2018 Camaro is one fast car. If you want to cruise the highway in a sleek and powerful ride, leave it to the Camaro to provide.

4. It’s Just Plain Fun to Drive

It’s a bit subjective, but it’ll feel objective when you’re behind the wheel giving the Camaro a test drive. The Camaro handles beautifully thanks, in part, to the fact that it’s heavier than a traditional sports car. This means that you hug the road like you’ve never experienced. Even at higher speeds it can handle curves in the road like they’re nothing.

5. Did We Mention There’s a Convertible Option?

Well there is. If you love that classic wind in your hair driving experience, don’t forget to ask for a convertible 2018 Camaro.

Haul All the Presents with Chevy Cargo Space

Christmas is coming up pretty soon now. Maybe you’ve already taken care of your shopping list because you’re super organized and on the ball. Or, perhaps, you’re in the boat with the rest of us mere mortals: you haven’t bought a thing and still haven’t gotten around to asking everybody what they might want.

In either case, shopping means you need space in your vehicle to transport gifts from the mall back home to be wrapped and placed under the tree (if you haven’t put up your tree yet, there’s only so much we can do to help you!).

This is why you need a Chevy. Chevy SUVs and trucks offer tons of cargo space, whether you need to stuff a bunch of gifts into your trunk or haul some materials for your next DIY home improvement project.

2018 Chevy Traverse

The 2018 Chevy Traverse has best-in-class maximum cargo space of 98.2 cubic feet. That’s more than some SUVs in the full-class segment! Not only that, but the Traverse can seat up to eight people. From hauling presents to transporting people, the Traverse can handle nearly any task when it comes to room.

2018 Chevy Equinox

The 2018 Chevy Equinox is the smaller, more economical cousin to the Traverse. When you don’t need quite as much vehicle as the Traverse, the Equinox can offer you 63.5 cubic feet of maximum cargo volume and seating for up to five people

2018 Chevy Tahoe

On the other hand, if you feel like you need more room to stretch your legs, the eight seater Tahoe is the way to go. It’s got comparable cargo volume to the Traverse at 94.7 cubic feet of maximum storage space.

Visit Classic Chevrolet

Hey, you’ve been nice this past year, right? Reward yourself with a trip to Classic Chevy.

Our Top 9 Picks for Car Accessory Gifts

Close Up Of Hand Scraping Icer From Car Windshield With Scraper

Whether you just bought or leased a new vehicle from Classic Chevy or you have a newer Chevy and are not ready for something new just yet, or if you just know someone who has a Chevy, try gifting one of these useful accessories this holiday season.

Floor Mats

You may have carpeted floor mats in your Chevy now, but during the winter, you should have rubber floor mats to protect the carpet from melting snow and slush on your feet. And, at some point, the snow and ice will melt, giving way to mud, which will eventually stain the carpets, especially if you have clay.

Ice Scraper

An ice scraper with a brush comes in handy on snowy mornings or even mornings that have a heavy frost. Instead of waiting for the defroster to melt everything, you can give it a hand by scraping the frost, ice or snow from the windshield. You’ll be ready to go by the time your Chevy warms up; and you’ll be safe because of better visibility.

Even if you park in a garage at home and at work, you should have an ice scraper and brush. If it starts to snow while you are shopping or parked elsewhere in an open lot, that brush and scraper will come in handy.

Plug-in Coffee Cup

The last thing you need on a long commute on a cold day is cold coffee, tea or hot cocoa. Instead of having your hot drink cool off too fast, get a coffee cup that plugs into the cigarette lighter so you have a hot drink all the way to your destination.

Come-a-Long

Most people don’t think of this, but carrying a come-a-long and some extra chain in the trunk could get you out of a bind. If you end up sliding off the road, you’ll be able to pull yourself out of the ditch. You can attach the come-a-long to a tree or another vehicle if someone stops to help you out.

Windshield Snow Shade

Make cleaning the snow and ice off your windshield easier by installing a snow shade while you’re parked. It will also keep dangerous ultraviolet rays from cracking and fading the interior of your vehicle at the same time.

Traction Weight for Trucks

Driving a pickup in the winter could be challenging because the light rear end slides on slippery snow and ice. Add a traction weight to the bed of the truck to help stabilize the rear during inclement weather.

Snowplow Kit

This kit is great for your Chevy truck if you have a long driveway to plow or if you live on a back road that gets plowed last or not at all. The snowplow will help you get out of your driveway when the snow is too deep and dangerous to drive through.

Remote Start System

If you have a vehicle that did not come with a remote start, you could add your own remote start. If you remember to leave the defroster on when you leave the vehicle, you can start it about 10 minutes before you’re ready to leave so it’s nice and warm and so that it is easier to clear the windows.

Wireless Salt Spreader

Add a salt spreader to your winter vehicle accessories to spread salt on driveways that you need to keep clean. This is especially helpful if you have a long driveway that you would like to keep clear. You could even pretreat the driveway ahead of time to keep the snow and ice from building up too much.

Visit Classic Chevrolet

Stop by Classic Chevy to test drive a new vehicle or give our service department a call to schedule an appointment for maintenance or for help installing accessories such as a remote start.
