White and Black Chevy Colorado ZR2 pickup outdoors

If you’re looking to hit the tough terrain and set out on those off-road adventures you’ve been dreaming of, you should take a look at the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2. Equipped with numerous off-roading capabilities and a comfortable interior cabin, this mid-size pickup is earning a reputation for packing a lot of desirable features and technology into its sleek and rugged exterior. In fact, it was named Cars.com’s Best Pickup Truck of 2018 in January and was just named a 2018 Autotrader Must Test Drive Award winner this March.

The 2018 Autotrader Must Test Drive Awards considered a variety of vehicles and named twelve winners. The Colorado ZR2 was the only pickup truck chosen, after Autotrader’s auto experts reviewed its “interior comfort and materials, available technology features and ride quality.” Autotrader gave high praise to the ZR2, stating that the “ZR2 is a true off-road machine, rugged, and ready for almost anything you can throw at it.”

The ZR2 not only performs well on rough, off-road terrains, but also is a great vehicle on paved roads, giving you exceptional handling, control, and ride quality. The pickup seamlessly combines its mid-size build with state-of-the-art off-road capabilities, giving drivers both agility and intelligent control technology. It offers higher suspension than the standard Colorado, wider tracks, functional rocker protection, and more.

Spring Cleaning Tips: Freshen Up Your Home and Car

Spring Cleaning tips for your car

Now is the perfect time for spring cleaning, even if the season is still a bit away. Whether you’re wiping down your car or airing out your home, there are a number of things you can do to get rid of the dust, dirt, and gloom of the wintertime.

Carpet Cleaning

You can easily refresh your car’s carpeting with a few household materials, according to Progressive.  First, remove your floor mats and give them a good power wash, hanging them to dry when finished. Next, use a combination of distilled white vinegar and hot water to scrub out any stains in the carpet. Finally, use a wet/dry shop vacuum to remove any extra salt or residue left from winter.

Window Washing

A combination of 50% distilled white vinegar and 50% tap water is also an ideal mixture for window cleaning, either in the home or in your car. If the glass is grimy, we recommend washing with soapy water and rinsing before spraying. By simply applying the vinegar-water solution to windows and wiping away, you’ll have a streak-free shine. Some auto experts also suggest using clean newspaper to wipe away any possible glare.

Washing and waxing is important as well, but be sure to pay attention to other details. For example, you should get new wipers in the spring, as they’re usually worn out from winter. Scrubbing headlights can sometimes remove gunk that builds up over time, and tire cleaning is great for a little added shine.

If your spring vehicle cleaning also involves getting rid of that old winter beater, then come by LaSorsa Chevrolet Buick, and we’ll be happy to get you behind the wheel of an excellent new car — and this time, the cleaning is on us.

Buick Avenir Trim Continues to Expand

Buick Avenir TrimBuick has always been a luxurious brand, but with the introduction of an all-new, high-end trim level, the company presents a new standard of luxury. The Buick Avenir trim adds elegant details to its design, both inside and out, plus additional standard technology and safety features.

The Buick Avenir trim debuted less than a year ago in the 2018 Buick Enclave. It’s been a big hit for drivers looking for a reliable family vehicle that will absolutely stand out. The second Avenir vehicle that will arrive at dealerships like LaSorsa Chevrolet Buick is the 2018 Buick LaCrosse sedan. This should be available by the end of February 2018.

Buick plans to continue adding the Avenir trim to one model at a time. There’s no news on what model might add the luxurious trim next, but representatives have suggested that it may eventually be available across the whole lineup. It will be exciting to see just how Buick implements added luxury into every one of its vehicles in the near future.

To learn more about the Avenir trim, you can stop in to see a Buick Enclave Avenir at LaSorsa Chevrolet Buick in person—or stay tuned for some Avenir-centric advertising during the upcoming men’s basketball tournament this season.

Winterize Your Car In a Few Simple Steps

Winterize Your Car - LaSorsa Chevrolet Buick in Bronx, New York

Here in New York, winter can arrive suddenly without much warning. That is why it is so important to winterize your car. Follow these simple steps below to get your car ready for the cold and snow.

Fluids

Your vehicle’s fluids are what keeps everything running smoothly. Make sure all fluids are clean and at the proper level. Pay particular attention to your coolant, oil, and washer fluid.

Tires

Those four pieces of rubber that keep you in contact with the road can quickly become useless if they are worn too thin or damaged. Check your tread depth and you can even switch to winter tires, which do a better job of cutting through snow and staying soft when temperatures drop.

Battery

Any starting troubles can become exacerbated in the winter. Check your car’s battery, cables, and terminals.

Emergency Kit

In case you do get stuck on the side of the road, you want to be prepared. Pack an emergency kit with items like a blanket, extra gloves, a small shovel, flashlight, high-energy snacks, water, and other emergency items.

Here at LaSorsa Chevrolet Buick, we want to help you get through the winter. Schedule a service appointment with us today and let us do the work for you.
