Chevrolet Shows Off Life Size Lego Silverado

2019 Chevy Silverado Built out of Legos

To celebrate the release of the The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part, a team of LEGO® Master Builders created a life size, red LEGO® Silverado. This special build continues the partnership that Chevrolet started with Warner Bros. Pictures in 2017 with The LEGO® Batman Movie.

The truck got its big debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit early this year. It is the first full-size Chevrolet vehicle to be made entirely out of LEGO® bricks.

“Chevrolet is once again thrilled to be working with Warner Bros. to integrate the brand and one of our most iconic products – Silverado – into The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevrolet Truck marketing.

It took a team of 18 Master Builders and over 2,000 hours to create the LEGO® Silverado all by hand. They ultimately used 334,544 pieces. The full-size replica even includes unique graphic details and working lights. In total, the LEGO® Silverado weighs in at 3,307 pounds and is 72 inches high, 240 inches long, and 96 inches wide.

If you are your kids see the movie, be on the lookout for a mini-build of the Silverado High Country. Then, watch as your favorite LEGO® Movie heroes work together to save the world from the LEGO® DUPLO® destroyers.

Here at LaSorsa Chevrolet Buick, we are excited to see what Chevrolet and LEGO® work on next!

Cut Stress and Save Money with These Tips for Buying Your First Car

Tips for Buying your First Car, like the 2019 Chevy Spark

For many, buying a car for the first time can seem like a daunting task. But with a little bit of preparation, shopping for just the right car is fun and easy. If you’re ready to buy a car but are not quite sure where to start, check out these tips for buying your first car and get ready to learn how much fun car shopping can be.

Establish a budget

Before anything else, you should spend some time figuring out what you can realistically afford to pay for your new car. This helps you narrow down your search later on and also helps you avoid unsustainable monthly payments. When establishing your budget, make sure you factor in the cost of insurance, maintenance, and monthly payments.

Decide what you really need

Once you have an idea of how much money you can spend, you should decide what you truly need in a vehicle. Once you think about the features you absolutely need in your new car, you’ll be able to narrow down your search even more easily.

Do your research

Researching new cars is easier than ever before. There are ample resources online that will help you narrow down your search to a few possible options in no time. Just make sure you don’t spend too much time looking into cars that don’t meet your needs or are out of your budget.

Don’t rush the test drive

When you finally go to the dealership to test drive your potential new car, don’t rush the test drive. Buying a new car is a big investment, so it’s best to spend time during the test drive really considering if this one is the car for you.

There’s no better time during the year for a road trip than summer. With the kids out of school, long summer days present the perfect opportunity to hit the road and explore the country both near and far. Not all road trips are created equal, however, so you will want to plan out the particulars of your road trip to make it the best it can be.

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.

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.
