    Winter Car Care and Routine Maintenance Tips From Graff Mt Pleasant - 01/13/2018

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich., –– Winter in Michigan is about as harsh on your car as anywhere in the country! Freezing cold temperatures, icy roads, and corrosive road salt are among the many elements of winter's assault on your vehicle's performance and your safety on the road. The problem with the inclement weather in Michigan isn't just that it's tough to handle but also that it's unpredictable and can come at any time. So there is no "safe" time during the winter months to put off maintenance on your vehicle. Most of its components will be adversely affected by the cold temperatures and snowfall. We at Graff Chevrolet and Graff Buick GMC Cadillac of Mt. Pleasant want to keep you safe out on the road during this season, and that starts with providing superior service and information on the vehicle components that are the most critical to your vehicle's ability to handle the cold weather and the slippery and unforgiving driving conditions. By reading our Winter Car Care and routine maintenance tips from Graff Mt. Pleasant, you can learn how to keep yourself safe and your vehicle in proper working condition throughout the snowy months.


    Winter Car Care vehicle components:

    • Tires - Perhaps the most critical piece to keeping your vehicle in control on snowy, slushy, slippery roads. Read our tire pages to learn how not only wear, but tire inflation and pressure can seriously affect your driving capability and handling and why upgrading to a set of winter tires may just be the best course of action.
    • Batteries - Cold temperatures slow the chemical reaction in your battery which creates the energy needed to start your vehicle, and could leave you unable to turn your car on. Additionally, if your battery is old it will have an even tougher time getting going on a chilly morning. Our experienced technicians run a simple diagnostic test to see if it's time to get a new battery to help brave the freezing temps.
    • Brakes - You never want to be the car that slides into the ditch on the side of the road, or into an intersection. Get your brakes checked and replaced at our Graff Mt. Pleasant Service Center to ensure that you have the proper stopping capability. 
    • Oil Changes - In general, your oil needs to be changed regularly. But like your battery, your vehicle's oil is greatly impacted by cold temperatures, making it less effective at keeping your engine components from overheating and warping. 
    • Wiper Blades - Your ability to see the road in front of you is crucial this time of year, especially if snow or other precipitation is falling. Your safety is too important to try and make it through the winter with a set of wiper blades that are broken or not functioning properly.

    So make your safety on the roads this winter your highest priority by completing your Winter Car Care routine at Graff Mt. Pleasant. Learn which components are most important, need upkeep, and how to tell from home that they are in need of replacement. Or, schedule your appointment today to meet with ASE Certified technicians at Graff Chevrolet or Graff Buick GMC Cadillac!

    Winter Driving Tips to Keep You Safe - 12/21/2017

    MT. PLEASANT, Mich.,–– Michigan winters can be quite perilous and create dangerous roads for drivers of all experience levels. While there's no real way to avoid driving until springtime, you can follow a few rules and suggestions to keep yourself out of harm's way on the road. So read our winter driving tips to keep you safe this year!

    Winter Driving Tips to Keep you Safe

    Clean Off Your Vehicle

    Before you even start driving, it is extremely important to clean all the snow and ice off of your vehicle's windshield, windows, headlights, and brake lights. Clear visibility while driving is crucial to your safety while driving out on winter roads and to the safety of other drivers. We can't tell you how often we see somebody trying to drive to work in the morning while looking through a tiny little hole they cleared in the ice on their windshield. Simply put, that is not safe, and you should never do it. Take the time to clear off your windshield and other windows.


    Drive Slowly

    May seem like a no-brainer, but driving slow is the number one way to stay safe on the roads this winter. It allows you to have more time to brake, react to other vehicles, and will lessen the impact of any uncontrolled steering.


    Give More Space Between Vehicles 

    This tip is under the same category as driving slower, but it is uniquely important all the same. Allowing for double or even triple the amount of distance you would normally give between you and the vehicle in front of you is important on snowy roads. In fact, the recommended that the normal dry pavement following distance of three to four seconds should be increased to eight to ten seconds in snowy conditions. The added space allows you more time to react to their movements and stop if need be.


    Don't Brake Abruptly

    Putting your foot down hard on the brake pedal is not a wise choice this winter. Instead, if you need to stop, slowly apply the brake. This way your wheels will slow their rotation in a controlled manner before coming to a complete stop. A hard stop will make your tires lose their grip on the road and slip.


    No Sharp Turns

    Make slow, wide, and deliberate turns on poor road conditions to maintain control of your vehicle. Sharp or fast turns through intersections or elsewhere can cause your vehicle to fishtail, swinging the back of the car out of control.


    Do Not Use Cruise Control

    Cruise control is normally a helpful tool, but it can be extremely dangerous to use during winter. Let's say you're driving on the highway or just a normal road with cruise control activated. If your vehicle slides on some ice, slush, or snow and your wheels may be facing a different direction. The cruise control will then keep you acceleration on your new, accidental path potentially hurdling you into off the road, into a ditch, or maybe even into oncoming traffic.


    Winter Car Care

    The best way to ensure your vehicle is up to the task of winter driving is by completing our Winter Car Care maintenance routine. During freezing temps your vehicle's internal components can become compromised, crack, break, or become disabled. It's also important to get your vehicle's battery, tire pressure and tread, heating, and other components before the winter fully sets in.

    Watch the Weather

    Keep an eye on the weather channel or other meteorology services for what is headed your way. If possible, it is always advisable to avoid driving during snowstorms or in other poor road conditions.

    Practice in a Parking Lot

    The best way to become comfortable and skilled at winter driver is to practice. Find an empty parking lot with some snow and ice that you can practice turns, braking, and more so that you're prepared for anything out on the road.

    Stay safe this winter by following our driving tips to let your vehicle handle best on the snow and ice while avoiding any accidents. If you're worried about you and your passenger's well being out on the road, in general, we recommend reading up on Chevrolet's new advanced safety features available on most new 2018 Chevy models. Features like the Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist Technology, Forward Safety Awareness, and more can help make driving a much safer and more relaxing endeavor.

    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!

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.

    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!

    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. Freezing temperatures take a toll on your car's internal components and could potentially cause it to shut down, leaving you stranded on the side of the road in the cold. 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.
