Winter Car Service Tips

Winter Car Service Tips

Now that winter is almost here, it’s time to perform some seasonal care on your vehicle. These car service tips from Red Wing Chevrolet will help you get your vehicle set for safe and efficient driving throughout the cold season.

Check and Charge Your Battery

Cold weather is tough on car batteries. An aged battery may work fine in the fall, only to fail you in the winter. Get your battery checked now to avoid a jump later. Be sure to keep jumper cables and reflective safety cones in your vehicle just in case you need them.

Tire Pressure

Your tires are also more sensitive in the winter time. Cold temperatures can cause major fluctuation in tire pressure. But for the safest and most efficient driving, you want your tires to be in good condition. Check your tire pressure regularly throughout the winter and watch for any damage or worn tread.

Windshield Wiper Fluid

With snow, ice, and road salt in the mix, you’ll be fighting a dirty windshield all season. Make sure that your windshield wiper fluid is topped off and that your wiper blades are in good condition so that you’ll have clear visibility this winter.

Silverado is Perfect Truck for Spring Camping

2017 Chevrolet Silverado | Red Wing Chevrolet Buick Cadillac | Red Wing, MNNow that the spring weather has finally arrived, outdoor fanatics everywhere are dreaming up their next camping trips. Have you ever turned your vehicle into the ultimate camping tool? This year, try gearing up your truck for spring camping. At Red Wing Chevrolet we have a lot full of Silverados that are perfect for the task.

When you take out your Silverado, you have two great options: sleeping in a tent or sleeping in the bed. If you opt for the traditional tent method, the bed of your Silverado can easily be used to store tubs of food, cooking supplies, bicycles, kayaks, or whatever other gear tickles your fancy. Purchase a canopy ahead of time that you can set up over your bed for the ultimate camping tailgating experience.

If you want to rely only on your Silverado, set up your sleeping area in the spacious bed of the pickup. Devoted truck campers build shelving units and extra storage around their bed space, but this isn’t necessary for a weekend away.

When it’s time to pull up the maps to head home, or to check in with work, the Silverado’s available Wi-Fi hotspot will come in handy. You can also use the Wi-Fi plus the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system to stream music while you gather around the campfire for a perfect, spring evening.

Born Again: Next-Gen Chevrolet Malibu Announced

Larger, lighter and more efficient Malibu to be unveiled at New York Auto Show
2015-03-06

Red Wing, MN – Designed to deliver more efficiency, connectivity and advanced safety features than ever, the next-generation 2016 Chevrolet Malibu will make its public debut at the New York International Auto Show this April.
Using a blank slate approach, Chevrolet designers benefited from an entirely new architecture, which for Malibu includes a wheelbase nearly four inches longer than the outgoing model. That, in turn, provides increased rear legroom and interior space.
“Chevrolet has earned an impressive lineup of industry awards over the past year,” said Brad Banitt of Red Wing Chevrolet. “The upcoming debut of the next-generation Malibu will only continue the brand’s momentum and customer excitement.”
Due to a higher-strength steel structure, the new Malibu is also expected to be 300 pounds lighter than the current model, which benefits the sedan’s fuel economy and handling.
“Malibu’s gorgeous styling is the result of a masterful understanding of proportions,” said Ed Welburn, General Motors’ vice president of Global Design. “The roofline has been stretched rearward giving a more sleek profile, while the front wheels have moved forward and front and rear overhangs have been reduced. Along with the sculpted body side, these cues help Malibu appear more dynamic and sophisticated.”
The 2016 Malibu is expected to go on sale by the end of 2015.
