According to Chevy, Prince Ea penned a completely unique and original piece for the video, including a parallel between the Cruze and his own hard work. Ea terms the Cruze a prime example of “hustle,” or what it means to have idea work-ethic. Prince Ea has more than half a million followers on YouTube.

When to Replace Tires: Proper Car Maintenance

Tires are the only part of your car that comes in contact with the road, making it especially important to be sure they are in proper shape. That means you should regularly check and maintain them, and you should also know when to replace tires as well.

According to Michelin, you should always consider age. Tires that are older than five years will begin to break down, making them especially vulnerable to blow-outs. Consider buying new tires if yours have sat around for some time. After ten years, you could be risking your safety by driving.

Next, check your tires for uneven wear, bulges, or cracking. Uneven wear can actually be a sign that there is a problem with you vehicle’s alignment; nonetheless, the tires can’t provide proper stopping power in this condition. Cracking and bulges indicate the tire could burst at any moment, making it vital to get new tires.

Finally, check the tread depth. This is the most common way to determine you need new tires. Your tread should have at least 2/32” of tread—any less can be illegal in certain areas. If you don’t have a tread-depth indicator, use a penny. Flip it upside down in the tread—if anything above President Lincoln’s head is visible, you need new tires.

Still have questions or want the professionals to take a look? Stop by Red Wing Chevrolet Buick Cadillac.

2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid Leads Segment in Efficiency

Red Wing, MN April 6, 2016 – Offering a segment-best EPA-estimated 46-mpg combined fuel economy rating, the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid is an efficient midsize sedan driving Chevrolet into the future with uncompromising comfort, connectivity and driving dynamics.

It leverages drive system components and software from the plug-in Chevrolet Volt to provide all-electric propulsion in some driving scenarios, along with power to assist the gas engine. Additional technologies contribute to EPA-estimated mileage ratings of 47 mpg city and 46 mpg highway. No other 2016 midsize sedan hybrid offers Red Wing, MN-area customers higher EPA-estimated city mileage.

“This world-class hybrid will deliver exceptional efficiency with a sleek design and easy-to-use technologies that our customers will appreciate,” said Brad Banitt, GM of Red Wing Chevrolet.

The 2016 Malibu Hybrid starts at $28,645 (including destination charge) and is based on the LT trim. It shares many of its attributes with the entire Malibu lineup, which was redesigned for 2016 and features a longer wheelbase for greater comfort. It is also nearly 300 pounds lighter than its predecessor for improved driving feel and greater fuel economy.

Red Wing, MN-area customers will find that standard features include Chevrolet MyLink with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, for high-level connectivity, and access to select phone apps such as music, maps and others right from MyLink’s 7-inch-diagonal color touch screen. (Data plan rates and privacy statements apply and require a compatible smartphone.)

Malibu Hybrid offers Red Wing area customers 10 standard airbags, a rear-vision camera, cruise control and push-button start with passive entry. Additional active safety features offered include Lane Keep Assist, Front Pedestrian Braking, Rear Vision Camera and Low Speed Automatic Braking.

Teen Driver is available and allows Red Wing, MN-area parents to automatically activate safety features and view their teenager’s driving habits, while managing certain settings including speed warnings, radio volume limits and more, to help reinforce safe driving. It is the first system in the industry to allow parents to view how their teen drove the vehicle via the in-vehicle report card.

Hybrid details

The 2016 Malibu Hybrid is driven by a new, direct-injected 1.8L engine mated to a two-motor drive unit. The drive unit is based on the one used in the 2016 Chevrolet Volt and provides additional power to assist the engine during acceleration, for 182 horsepower (136 kW) of total system power.

The engine also features Chevrolet’s first application of Exhaust Gas Heat Recovery, or EGHR, technology, which uses exhaust heat to warm the engine and cabin. EGHR improves engine warm-up and helps offer consistent fuel economy performance in cold weather. Additional fuel economy benefits come from Exhaust Gas Recirculation, or EGR.

An 80-cell, 1.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack provides electric power to the hybrid system. It can power the Malibu Hybrid up to 53 miles per hour (85 km/h) on electricity alone. The gasoline-powered engine automatically comes on at higher speeds and high loads to provide additional power.

In addition to the drive unit, the Malibu Hybrid also shares the 2016 Volt’s blended regenerative braking system, which provides maximum kinetic energy recovery during braking to be stored in the battery system to help maintain charge.
