    This Chevy Truck Has over 1 Million Miles on Its Odometer! - 12/15/2017

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich.,–– Chevy trucks have built an incomparable legacy of dependability and toughness over the past 100 years. If you head down to Corsicana, Texas, you'll find a 1973 Chevrolet C10 454 that sets a new high watermark for vehicle longevity. Danny Hudson, the proud owner of this Chevy truck, has put over 1 million miles on its odometer. You read that right, 1 million miles.

    This Chevy Truck Has over 1 Million Miles on Its Odometer!

    This incredible feat was not without plenty of hurdles along the way though. Hudson has had to repair some things over the years, and even put in a few new engines, including at one point, a Corvette 427 with three double-barrel carbs. Thankfully Hudson is no stranger to a working under the hood and does all the work on the truck himself. He is ASE certified and a GM Master Tech.

    “Things are gonna break,” says Hudson. “I just fix it as it needs it.”

    What makes this truck's legendary odometer even more amazing is that Hudson hasn't regularly driven the C10 since 1999. His day-to-day ride ever since is a 2000 Chevy Silverado, with, unsurprisingly, a half-million miles on it.

    To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first Chevrolet truck ever produced, Chevy created their Truck Legends program, a fun club of sorts that recognizes and rewards Chevy truck owners with more than 100,000 miles on the odometer or customers who have purchased or leased one or more new Chevy trucks in their lifetime. Danny Hudson and his C10 certainly qualify as Truck Legends along with 5,400 other program members from around the country. Membership affords you exclusive merchandise, decals, special invites to Chevy events, discounts from various Chevy partners, and more. The Chevy Trucks Centennial Celebration, the culmination of this anniversary campaign, will be held at Texas Motor Speedway on December 16th. The event will allow for fans to experience the latest Chevy products, admire Truck Legends such as Danny Hudson and his C10 that are being showcased, and even the chance to meet NASCAR superstar Dale Earnhardt Jr. One this is for certain though, folks will come from far and wide to see the Chevy truck with over 1 million miles on its odometer! If you're interested in purchasing or leasing a Chevy truck of your own, browse our online inventory and schedule a test drive to feel the power and capability in person!

    Christmas Gifts for Your Car - 12/08/2017

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich.,––It's the season of giving, and this year, don't just give presents to your friends and family. Give some Christmas gifts to your car! Your vehicle deserves a bit of attention this time of year, especially with the inclement winter weather and poor road conditions. So pamper your vehicle with any number of gifts that will make it look better, run better, and stay clean.

    Christmas Gifts for your Car



    Meguiar's Complete Car Care Kit

    Keep your vehicle clean and looking good in 2018! Plus, it's especially important to wash your vehicle somewhat regularly during the winter as road salt is corrosive and can rust off the paint and metal on your car.
    Christmas Gifts for your Car

    iOttie Easy One Touch 2 Car Mount Universal Phone Holder

    A phone holder that can keep your phone in view while you're getting driving directions from it. But make sure you don't get distracted by it while you're driving, though. 

    Christmas Gifts for your Car


    Petego Rear Car Seat Protector

    If you take your dogs on the road with you sometimes, this is another great way to keep your vehicle clean. All of the hair that your furry friends shed will be on the seat protector instead of the seat cushions.

    Christmas Gifts for your Car


    WeatherTech Floor Mats

    WeatherTech floor mats will keep your car clean of any slush, mud, or debris that may get dragged in from outside on your boots. You can shop for the floor mats that are designed exactly for your make, year, and model type.

    Christmas Gifts for your Car

    Winter Tires

    Winter tires feature deeper tread depths to reduce snow buildup and unique tread patterns to channel snow and slush. Additionally, these tires also have an increased amount of biting edges for traction in deep snow and on ice. Winter tires can also shorten braking times to a quarter of the time of all-season tires.


    Oil Change

    When's the last time you got an oil change? We hope it wasn't too long ago, as it is critically important to your vehicle to get an oil change every 3,000–5,000 miles. Bring your vehicle into our Graff Mt Pleasant Service Department for an oil change this month, that way your car, truck, or SUV will run better and you won't have to worry about your engine overheating and warping internal components.

    How to Prep Your Home and Car for the Cold Weather - 11/27/2017

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich.,–– Michigan winters can be particularly nasty, and the freezing temperatures we are known to experience can take their toll on your house and your vehicle. There's a number of internal automotive components that can wear down more quickly in the cold. Same goes for your home as well! But thankfully, you can take steps to protect both your house and your ride from winter's inclement weather. Read on learn how to prep your home and car for the cold weather.


    Prep Your Home:


    Protect Your Pipes - You do not want to deal with the catastrophe of having frozen pipes that crack and then burst come springtime. To ensure this doesn't happen, disconnect and store outdoor hoses, cover outdoor faucets, and drain the water from any outdoor sprinkler systems. Additionally, make sure to protect any water pipes that are in unheated areas of your home with insulation.

    Check Your Furnace -
    You don't want to go through any amount of time this winter without a working furnace, so before the weather gets too cold, test out your furnace to make sure it's running well. Also, to ensure efficiency, we recommend changing your furnace filter right now and then every two to four months until the cold weather subsides.

    Prevent Ice Dams - Ice damns are large pieces of ice that build up on the edges of your roof, usually in a gutter, that can seriously damage the structural integrity of your roof. To avoid allowing any ice damns to occur, start by cleaning out your gutters. Then, invest in a de-icing cable system that can be installed on your roof, or purchase an extendable roof rake to use to shovel off the snow that accumulates on your roof so that the ice damns won't begin to form.

    Clean and Store Lawn Equipment -
    It's important to properly winterize and store your lawn equipment for the winter. Start by emptying the fuel in your equipment, as gasoline can damage fuel lines and other components if it sits there for too long unused. You should also clean off any dirt, grime, oil, or grass that is on your lawn mower, leaf blower, etc.

    Seal Doors and Windows - Use caulk to seal around your windows and install weather stripping around doors as needed to help keep the warm air in your house from escaping outside, saving you money on your heating bill.

    Inspect Fireplace and Chimney -
    Don't lose any of the warm air in your home by forgetting to close your chimney's flue all the way. Put your hand up your chimney to check, you shouldn't be able to feel any cold air coming down the chimney.

    Other Winter Essentials - Make sure you have road salt and shovels to keep your driveway ice and snow-free. Also, a backup generator is a good thing to have in case of emergency or a power outage.


    Prep your Car:


    Make an Emergency Kit - Everyone should have a winter emergency kit in their car during these colder months. It should include a first aid kit, jumper cables, emergency cash, flashlight, cell phone charger, and additional cash. Additionally, we recommend that you keep sand/kitty litter and a shovel in your vehicle in case you get stuck in a snowbank.

    Check Your Engine Coolant/Antifreeze Levels - These fluids will help keep your engine's radiator from freezing or overheating which is especially important during the winter months when the temperatures drop below freezing. You can pop the hood of your vehicle to check your fluid levels or you can always bring your vehicle into our Service Center to have your levels checked and refilled if need be.

    Check Your Tire Pressure and Tread Depth - As we all know, driving in snow and ice can be hazardous. Avoid slipping and sliding on winter roads by keeping your tire pressure at the optimal level and making sure that your tire tread isn't worn down. Bald and under-inflated tires will dramatically reduce your handling on the road, so ensure your safety this winter by either maintaining your tires or purchasing new ones.

    Get Your Heating and Ventilation Fixed - Getting the heating and ventilation systems in your vehicle checked and/or fixed is extremely important this time of year. You won't be able to defrost your windshield in the morning so that you can see the road properly, and you'll be unable to warm up the cabin of your vehicle, neither of which are safe things to experience.

    For additional tips and information to get your vehicle in top shape before the snow and ice arrive, we recommend reading our Fall Car Care guide to prepare for the coming winter weather. It's important to how to prep your home and car for the cold weather this time of year! If you have any questions on how to get your vehicle ready for winter or need any routine maintenance done before the snow falls, visit our Graff Mt. Pleasant Service Center. Our knowledgeable and friendly service technicians will be happy to assist you with anything you need.

    Chevrolet Introduces the New 2019 Corvette ZR1 - 11/17/2017

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich.,–– The unmistakeable performance, style, and legacy of the Corvette brand is in no danger of fading away anytime soon, thanks to the latest iteration of the Chevy sports car. Chevrolet has introduced the new 2019 Corvette ZR1, the fastest and most powerful model yet. Recently unveiled in Dubai, the new Corvette is the pinnacle of supercar design with plenty of bravado to spare. Chevrolet, in their own words, has even gone so far as to herald the ZR1's comeback as the "Return of the King".

    Chevrolet Introduces the New 2019 Corvette ZR1

    The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has an exclusive LT5 6.2L V8 supercharged engine that affords it 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque, again, making it the fastest and most powerful production Corvette ever. It offers seven-speed manual and eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmissions. If that's not enough for you, take a look at the aggressive new exterior design. The new front fascia is engineered to channel air for drivetrain cooling and propulsion, and additional aero packages (Low Wing and High Wing) are available to give the new ZR1 significantly more downforce and perform even better out on the race track. Top speed for the ZR1 is over 210 mph, in case you were curious.

    Chevrolet Introduces the New 2019 Corvette ZR1

    Chevrolet introduced the world to the new 2019 Corvette ZR1 and put the other sports car brands on notice. If they want to keep up, however, they're going to have to drive really, really, fast. If you're interested in getting behind the wheel of a Corvette, you can always contact our sales team at Graff Mt Pleasant to get more information. Additionally, this time of year, we recommend bringing in your current vehicle to our Service Center to prepare for winter.

Thankfully, following our Fall Car Care maintenance routine is a great way to keep your vehicle in top shape to avoid any issues.

    Travel Tips for Thanksgiving With Young Children - 11/14/2017

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich.,–– Whether you have a long or short drive to your Turkey Day festivities this year, driving with your little ones can sometimes be a hectic endeavor. While we're sure you have a few tricks that help make long drives easier, we recommend following our travel trips for Thanksgiving with young children. The easier your traveling goes, the more you'll be able to enjoy the turkey and other delicious food!

    Travel Tips for Thanksgiving With Young Children

    Allow for Plenty of Travel Time


    The best way to make sure you arrive on time to Thanksgiving dinner is to give yourself a little cushion, especially when you've got to load the little ones into the car. Or, you may run in o any number of mishaps or slowdowns that may happen with your kids such a spills, tantrums, or anything else. So, start your trip 15-20 minutes early to make sure the whole drive goes smoothly.

    Bring Some Snacks


    While your children will be filling up on turkey, potatoes, green beans, and pumpkin pie at dinner they're likely going to need something to tide them over on the drive. Granola bars, veggies, or some nuts are great snack options!

    Have a Road Trip Toy Bag


    This is a more long-term solution for road trips and long drives in the future, but a handy tip to keep your kids occupied and happy is to keep a toy bag in your car at all times. This way even if their favorite stuffed animal, action figure, or doll is forgotten at home, you'll have the bag of toys ready to go.

    Don't Forget the Car Seat Tray


    For snacking, drawing, and just a general way to keep this tidier on you drive, don't forget the car seat tray at home. It will help keep any spills or stains from occurring on the interior of your car!

    Bring Along Some Art Supplies


    They have the potential to be a little messy, but bringing along some art supplies like crayons, paper, and stickers are a great way to keep your kids creatively stimulated during a long drive. We recommend making sure you have a sturdy car seat tray or a travel lap desk for older kids.

    Turn On the Electronics


    Bringing your tablet or a portable DVD player to keep your kids engaged with their favorite shows or movies. Nothing has revolutionized the road trip for parents more than modern electronics!

    Warm Up The Car Ahead of Time


    This time of year can be very chilly and to avoid runny noses and the sniffles, make sure to warm your car up before everyone in your family hops in to head out. Getting your car nice and toasty will make the ride more enjoyable for everyone.

    So this Thanksgiving, use these tips to make traveling with young children much easier on yourself. Your whole family will be much happier and ready to talk to your extended family when you reach your destination.

    15 Crazy Halloween Facts - 10/26/2017

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich. – Halloween is one of the most beloved holidays of the world, but most people don't even know how it began or why it's celebrated! Check out these 15 crazy Halloween facts to find out why we celebrate Halloween, how jack-o-lanterns came into existence, how heavy the biggest pumpkin in the world weighed, and more below!

    15 Crazy Halloween Facts

    1. Halloween has been celebrated for over 6,000 years! It is thought to have originated around 4,000 B.C.E., and since then, has become one of the most celebrated holidays in the world.
    2. Halloween hasn't always been called Halloween. It's gone by several names, like Samhain, All Hallow's Eve, Witches' Night, Snap-Apple Night, and even Summer's End.
    3. Halloween began as a Celtic festival for the dead called "Samhain". People at the time believed that Samhain was the day of the dead and that spirits would roam the earth. They would dress as ghosts and demons and leave "treats" on their front porch for the spirits so that they wouldn't be haunted.
    4. The Jack-o-Lantern was also started in Ireland, based on the story of the ghost of Stingy Jack. Irish people carved terrifying faces into pumpkins, potatoes, beets, and turnips to scare Stingy Jack and other spirits away from their homes on Halloween.
    5. The biggest pumpkin in recorded history weighed over 2,624.6 lbs. That's one big jack-o-lantern!
    6. In the Middle Ages, it was customary for trick-or-treaters to have to sing or dance in order to receive their treats. This was a practice known as "mumming" and is still practiced in some parts of Europe!
    7. This year, Americans are projected to spend over $618 million on pumpkins alone!
    8. Americans spend over $6 billion on Halloween annually, coming in second place to Christmas as the most commercial holiday in the United States.
    9. Halloween candy can last a lot longer than you'd think! Chocolates can last up to two years if stored in a dry area, and hard candy can last up to a year. Thankfully, you won't have to eat all of your candy in one day!
    10. Halloween is the sweetest holiday of the year. Chocolate sold on Halloween doubles the amount sold on Valentine's day. In fact, over $1.9 billion a year is spent on Halloween candy alone in the United States!
    11. Black and orange, the main colors of Halloween, both have symbolic meaning. Orange stands for the strength and endurance of autumn, while black symbolizes death and darkness, paying tribute to Halloween's origin as the day of the dead.
    12. In Mexico, the Day of the Dead is celebrated on November 1st instead of October 31st. Participants dress up like the dead and parade down the street in honor of those that have passed on to the next life.
    13. The Lantern Festival in China is celebrated to commemorate Halloween. Lanterns shaped like dragons are hung throughout streets to guide spirits back to their homes, and families typically leave food and water by their ancestors' portraits to welcome them for the evening.
    14. According to Safe Kids America, children are twice as likely to be involved in car accidents during Halloween. If you're going out, make sure to teach your children about street safety and keep an eye out for vehicles on the road!
    15. It is extremely rare for Halloween to occur during a full moon. The next full moon Halloween will take place on 10/31/2020.

    6 Tips for Safe Halloween Driving - 10/20/2017

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich. – On October 31st, parents, children, ghosts, ghouls, and goblins will all make their way to the streets to take part in the annual tradition of trick-or-treating. However, due to the busy atmosphere and large crowds of people walking around at night, Halloween is also one of the most dangerous times of the year. According to Safe Kids USA, children are twice as likely to be involved in vehicle-related accidents on Halloween than they would any other day of the year. Make the road safer for trick-or-treaters this year with these 6 tips for safe Halloween driving.

    1. Check Your Oil and Coolant


    6 Tips for Safe Halloween Driving

    Your vehicle's oil and coolant help to regulate the temperature of your engine, preventing it from overheating as you drive. Without proper oil levels, your engine's components will rub against one another, creating friction, producing heat and causing damage to important parts of your engine. Additionally, a low coolant level can cause heat to produce at a much faster rate, which can quickly create problems within your engine and its components. An overheating engine can cause a vehicle to break down and increase the chances of traffic buildups and accidents on the road. Keep an eye on your fluid levels to increase your safety on the road!

    Our Recommendation: You should have your oil changed every 3,000-5,000 miles, or whenever your vehicle owner's manual tells you to do so, and have your coolant checked and changed every 30,000 miles. If you aren't sure how to check your oil or coolant, our guide will provide you with step-by-step instructions and indicators to determine whether or not you need your oil or coolant changed!

    2. Test Your Headlights and Taillights


    6 Tips for Safe Halloween Driving

    If you're planning on driving at night, one of the most important components to check before you hit the road are your headlights and taillights. Your headlights will help you spot pedestrians and hazards on the road as you drive, keeping both you and other trick-or-treaters safe this Halloween. Your taillights serve a similar purpose, as they help to notify pedestrians and other drivers behind you when you are preparing to stop or take a turn. Making sure your headlights and taillights are in working condition can make a huge difference this Halloween season.

    Our Recommendation: Bring a friend along for this one! When the sun goes down, have them stand in front of your parked vehicle as you turn it on, engaging the headlights. Next, turn on your left turn signal, then your right turn signal. After that, make your buddy stand behind the vehicle and repeat the process. If they notice any dim or dark headlights or taillights, wait until the morning and then bring it into our Service Center. We'll make sure your lights are in proper working condition before Halloween begins!

    3. Practice Street Safety


    6 Tips for Safe Halloween Driving

    Street safety might seem like a no-brainer if you've been driving for a long time, but people can be very unpredictable on Halloween. Groups will frequently jaywalk or cross the street at the last second at busy intersections. While this may be frustrating as a driver, practicing defensive driving during the holiday season can make the difference between a minor inconvenience and a Halloween nightmare.

    Our Recommendation: Pay very close attention to speed limits, crosswalks, and other street signs that can indicate whether or not you will need to stop. If you see pedestrians attempting to cross the road, give them the right of way and allow them to proceed. Additionally, if you approach a yellow light, do not try to make the light and cross the intersection! This is an extremely unsafe driving habit and can lead to dangerous consequences. Refer to these Halloween driving safety tips to keep your trick-or-treaters and passengers safe this year.

    4. Fill Your Tires


    6 Tips for Safe Halloween Driving

    Driving with low air in your tires can affect your vehicle in a variety of ways. You'll experience poor gas mileage, have difficulty braking, and may even encounter damage to your axles or wheels themselves. Keeping your tires properly inflated can help you avoid accidents, costly repairs, and will greatly improve your fuel economy.

    Our Recommendation: First, check the amount of PSI or pressure your vehicle owner's manual says your tires should be at. Next, purchase a tire gauge to help you determine your tires' PSI. Finally, head to a nearby gas station or tire inflation center and find the nearest air pump. Unscrew the small cap on your hubcap and insert the air pump, pressing down on the lever to engage the air. Alternate filling your tires with pressure and checking your tires' pressure on the gauge to determine when they are at their appropriate level. Lastly, once you've successfully filled all your tires to their proper PSI, screw the caps back on your tires.

    5. Use Your Vehicle's Advanced Safety Features


    6 Tips for Safe Halloween Driving

    Do you own a new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, or Cadillac vehicle? Good news! It's probably equipped with a suite of advanced safety features! From the optional Adaptive Cruise Control to the standard Rear Vision Camera, you can make the road a much safer place with your vehicle's safety features.

    Our Recommendation: If you own or are interested in buying or leasing a new vehicle, explore some of the advanced safety features that come standard or optional on most GM vehicles, then let us know if you want to schedule a test drive to see how this technology works in person!

    6. Have Your Vehicle Inspected


    6 Tips for Safe Halloween Driving

    The best way to ensure that your vehicle is run effectively on the road this Halloween is to have it inspected. Our ASE Certified service team members can help with oil changes, coolant flushes, tire changes, headlight replacements, and much more. You can schedule a check-up to have your vehicle's important components inspected to make sure that it is safe to drive.

    Our Recommendation: The best way to keep your vehicle in great shape is by staying up to date on its routine maintenance. It's an important part of vehicle ownership that can often be overlooked, but proper care and effort will ensure that your car, truck, crossover, or SUV lasts a very long time.

    It is always better to be safe than sorry, especially on a busy and crowded day like Halloween. Make the streets a less dangerous place this October 31st with these 6 tips for safe Halloween driving. As we mentioned earlier, one of the best ways to protect yourself on the road is to take advantage of the advanced safety features available on GM vehicles. Also, let us know if you have any questions or would like to try these safety features for yourself by scheduling a free test drive

    Chevrolet Develops Stain-Resistant Interior for the 2018 Equinox - 10/11/2017

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich. –  Over the past year, Chevrolet paid close attention to social media, noting the experiences and inconveniences their customers faced while on the road. The most common problem was the natural wear and tear on the interior of their vehicles as well as messes and spills that can occur. There was even an issue with dark-wash denim blue jeans staining the fabric of the seats in new vehicles.

    With this in mind, Chevrolet developed a stain-resistant interior for the 2018 Equinox to withstand all the spills, scuffs, and other messes that can occur while driving and through everyday life. The intricate new design was based on the way Equinox customers live, complimenting the crossover's unique style with long-lasting materials to make a fashionable statement both on and off the road.

    Chevrolet Develops Stain-Resistant Interior for the 2018 Equinox

    The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox's durable denim-like seat fabric and available leather seating surfaces are designed for easy cleanup in the event of spills or messes, ideal if you plan on making this crossover the family vehicle. The treatments used on the fabric and leather also resist stains and scuffing that would otherwise leave unsightly marks on a vehicle's interior. With the new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox, you can rest easy knowing that its interior will hold up against pretty much everything and look as good as the day you bought it!

    Chevrolet Develops Stain-Resistant Interior for the 2018 Equinox

    “Many fashion trends disappear after a year of two, while the Equinox is designed for the long haul, making the durability of its materials very important,” said Mara Kapsis, color and trim designer for the 2018 Equinox. “By following real people and absorbing the little things in life that help or hinder them — such as photos posted of muddy paws, spilled drinks or stains on the seats — we learned more about how we could make the new Equinox easier to live with and enjoy every day.”

    Chevrolet Develops Stain-Resistant Interior for the 2018 Equinox

    With customers like you and your family in mind, Chevrolet developed a stain-resistant interior for the 2018 Equinox! If you're interested, take a look at the 2018 Equinox Brochure to get a closer look at this cutting-edge crossover's engine specifications, technology features, and more. After you've read up on the Equinox, explore the Equinox Model Overview to compare trim levels, prices, and customer reviews on the vehicle.
