17289241672_1851c62bcb_o

At Red Wing Chevrolet Buick, our Service Department has changed in the recent past and we couldn’t be happier how it’s turned out. This is in large part due to the expert work of our Service Manager, Shayne Swanson.

Shayne may only have a bit of time notched under his belt here at Red Wing, but he’s racked up thirty seven years of experience in the auto industry to more than make up for that. His qualifications show even more brightly when you ask him any topic surrounding our area, he’s what we’d like to call a local expert!

In terms of how we handle Service, customers will enter through our warm, inviting doors and see either Mike or Eric, our Service Writers. They consult with the customer and ensure that no surprises amount when repairs, check-ups or any level of service is done.

Shayne wanted to let you wonderful customers know that our Service Department is waiting. Any scrape, bump, replacement or oil change you may need can be done by us in an efficient and low-cost manner. Our team of Certified Technicians will make sure of that.

To put what makes us so special: “customer service, certified technicians, good workmanship and most importantly, communication, make us one of the best service departments in southern Minnesota.”

Winter Car Service Tips

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.

Want to be sure that your Chevrolet is set for winter? Bring it into Red Wing Chevrolet today and let us take a look at your vehicle for you.

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.

History of St. Patrick’s Day

Of all the holidays, St. Patrick’s Day is one of the most celebrated around the globe. The Irish heritage and culture flow through communities throughout the world every March. Without St. Patrick, however, there wouldn’t be a day to celebrate. Take a look at the history of St. Patrick’s Day and learn how the holiday came to be!

St. Patrick is widely known as the patron saint of Ireland. Born around the year 400 to a British Army Officer, Patrick’s name was likely Maewyn Succat or Patricius. Pirates kidnapped him as a child and sold him into slavery. He spent six years in prison in Ireland before receiving a message from God that told him to escape.

After doing so, he ventured to France where he spent 12 years at a monastery. He returned to Ireland as a bishop and with the pope’s blessing. There, he refused gifts, though he gave some himself, converted the population to Christianity, set up schools, created the basis for the church in Ireland, and much more.

Some of his most important converts were royal family members and, despite being arrested on multiple occasions, he still went above and beyond to do what was best for the Irish community at large.

We here at Red Wing Chevrolet are pumped to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this coming March!
