Chevrolet’s Guarantee: Confidence Pricing & Love it or Return it

On July 10, General Motors announced that Chevrolet dealerships will offer the Chevy Confidence Program which includes “Love it or Return it” and “Total Confidence Pricing”.

With Total Confidence Pricing, the price you see is the price you pay—plain and simple. So you can rest assured you’re getting a great deal on your Chevy, with no need to negotiate. That’s what you call Total Confidence.

With “Love It or Return It”, customers can return 2012 and 2013 Chevrolet cars and trucks bought during the program 30 to 60 days from the purchase date. The only stipulation is the vehicle must have less than 4,000 miles driven and no damage.

“Chevy Confidence adds another element of convenience to the retail experience that is sure to attract consumers to our showrooms, and we know through first-hand experience that once they get behind the wheel of one of our new products, they are more likely to take one home,” said Steve Hurley, co-chair of the Chevrolet Dealer Council.

We’re going the extra mile to be sure you’re satisfied long after you drive your Chevy home.  It’s all part of Chevy Confidence.

Save Money, Chevy Maintenance Tips

In a recent post we wrote about Chevrolet and OnStar teaming up to conduct a study to demonstrate 10 common mistakes drivers make that hurt their fuel economy.   We had focused on the driving habits… for this post we’re going to look at maintenance.

You may remember Ann Wenzlick and Beth Nunning drove identical Chevrolet Cruze LTs with an EPA estimated at 24 mpg city and 36 mpg highway, but Wenzlick averaged 37 miles per gallon using efficient driving habits in a properly maintained Cruze, while Nunning managed only 21 miles per gallon driving inefficiently and ignoring common maintenance.

So what common maintenance practices can save you money?

  • Tire pressure
    “All four tires on my car were five pounds under their recommended air pressure. That’s not enough to change how the Cruze drives, but it does make the engine work harder to turn the wheels. Check your tires at least once a month, as a tire that is 10 pounds under pressure can cut your fuel efficiency by more than 3 percent.” says Nunning
  • Use the recommended grade of motor oil
    Motor oil that says “Energy Conserving” on the performance symbol of the American Petroleum Institute contains friction-reducing additives that can improve fuel economy.
  • Use the most effective octane level for your car.
    Check your owner’s manual. For most cars, the recommended gasoline is regular octane. In most cases, using a higher-than-recommended octane gas offers no benefit – and costs more.
  • Ignoring the “check engine” light
    “I called OnStar to run a remote diagnostics check on my Cruze, because the check engine light was on. Turns out the light was on because the gas cap was loose. But more serious engine problems can cut your fuel economy by up to 40 percent.” says Nunning
  • Batteries can make or break you
    Check battery life, replace or charge your current battery and make sure battery cables are free of corrosion. Many breakdowns occur because batteries aren’t delivering full cranking power.
  • Engine tune-ups and car maintenance checks.
    According to the EPA, tune-ups improve performance as well as gas mileage. Check your owner’s manual for recommended maintenance schedules and follow them. This will avoid fuel economy problems due to worn spark plugs, dragging brakes, low transmission fluid, or the transmission failing to go into high gear.

Chevrolet has 10 models that offer 30 mpg or better on the highway, and our Service Department is open Monday – Friday from 7:30AM – 5:30PM, and Saturday 7:30AM – 4PM.
