How to Care for Your Car this Fall - 09/19/2017

DURAND, Mich., – The temperatures are dropping and the leaves are falling, and it can only mean one thing: fall is officially here!

Winter can sneak up on you, so knowing how to care for your car this fall can make a huge difference for your safety when the colder months arrive! We'll be discussing the importance of belt and hose maintenance, windshield care, heating and ventilation system maintenance, weather strips, and what you should keep in an emergency kit. Make sure to read up on all of our Fall Car Care pages, including:


How to Care for Your Car this Fall

Your vehicle's belts and hoses are some of the most important components of your engine. On our Belt & Hose Maintenance page, you can learn what your belts and hoses do to keep your vehicle running, how to know they need replacing, how frequently they should be replaced, and how to inspect them to make sure they're working efficiently.

How to Check Your Vehicle's Fluids - 09/14/2017

DURAND, Mich., –– Want to protect your vehicle from breakdowns, accidents, and costly repairs? Checking up on your vehicle's fluids at least once a month will help to reduce repair costs, improve your safety on the road, and protect your investment from potential damage. Learn how to check your vehicle's fluids to keep it running at peak efficiency. Follow these quick and easy steps!

How to Check Your Wiper Fluid


How to Check Your Vehicle's Fluids

While it may not directly affect your vehicle's performance, your wiper fluid helps to improve your visibility on the road when you're driving. You'll use up your wiper fluid over time from cleaning your windshield. If you notice that your wiper fluid level is lower than normal, pop the hood of your vehicle and locate your wiper fluid reservoir (look for the "Washer Fluid Only" label). Locate the "full" label on your wiper fluid reservoir, and fill the tank until it reaches that mark!

How to Check Your Oil


How to Check Your Vehicle's Fluids

Your engine oil is one of the most important fluids in your vehicle. It lubricates your engine's components, which reduces your engine's heat and prevents parts from rubbing against each other and causing damage. Typically, you should have your engine oil replaced every 3,000-5,000 miles, or whenever your vehicle owner's manual tells you to do so. Checking your oil only takes a few steps and should be done only after you allow your vehicle to cool down for an hour. Pop the hood of your engine and follow these directions to check your oil:

  1. After popping the hood, look for your engine oil dipstick (it should look similar to the image above). Put your finger through the loop and pull the dipstick out of your engine.
  2. Wipe the dipstick off on a paper towel or rag to make sure you can get a clean reading.
  3. Reinsert the dipstick and remove it again to read the oil level. There should be labels on the dipstick indicating whether you're at the maximum or minimum oil level. If you're below the minimum level, bring your vehicle in for an oil change!

How to Check Your Coolant


How to Check Your Vehicle's Fluids

You should check your coolant level as well to make sure it's at its designated amount. This fluid is what keeps the radiators from freezing or overheating. Before you check your coolant, make sure your engine has cooled down or you could be sprayed by scalding water! Use your vehicle owner's manual to locate your coolant reservoir. It should look similar to the image above. Your coolant should have maximum and minimum levels similar to other reservoirs in your engine. Get your coolant refilled right away if it's below the minimum level!

Keeping your coolant level high reduces your engine's heat and helps to regulate internal temperatures in your vehicle. You should have your coolant levels refilled every 30,000 miles, or whenever your vehicle owner's manual tells you to do so.

How to Check Your Power Steering Fluid


How to Check Your Vehicle's Fluids

Your power steering fluid helps to transmit power from your steering wheel to your vehicle's engines to give you smoother and easier steering on the road. If you want to check your power steering fluid, look for a reservoir similar to the one above (it should have a power steering fluid label on the cap). The labels on the exterior of the reservoir will have two sets of lines, one for a hot engine and one for a cold engine. Consult your vehicle owner's manual if you aren't sure what type of engine your vehicle has. If you need your power steering refilled, bring your vehicle in for service right away!

How to Check Your Brake Fluid


How to Check Your Vehicle's Fluids

Your brake fluid helps to transfer power from your brake pedal to your brakes, allowing your vehicle to slow to a stop whenever you need it to. If your brake fluid is below the minimum level, you may encounter trouble while you brake as it may require more force. To check your brake fluid, you must first locate your brake fluid master cylinder reservoir. It should be close to your brake pedal, but if you can't find it, consult your vehicle owner's manual. Like other reservoirs, it should have a "full" and "empty" indicator on its exterior. If it's below the "empty" label, schedule a service appointment with us!

Checking your fluids at least once a month will help you to extend the life of your vehicle, reduce maintenance costs, and improve your safety on the road. Now that you know how to check your vehicle's fluids, you'll be able to determine whether or not you need to have important reservoirs on your vehicle filled. If you need your oil changed, brake fluid replaced, or other service, give us a call or schedule an appointment online right away! Consult our routine maintenance FAQ if you have any questions on power steering, coolant, or other important components in your vehicle.

Located at 9009 East Lansing Road in Durand, MI 48429, Hank Graff Chevrolet Durand wants to revolutionize your car buying experience. We’ll bring all the transparency and customer satisfaction you need while making the buying experience fun!

2018 Chevy Equinox Diesel Provides Quiet and Efficient Rides - 09/05/2017

DURAND, Mich., – Diesel vehicles are often criticized for their noisy engines and expensive fill-up costs. These two factors can be a large deterrent for potential vehicle owners and can make a huge difference when it comes to purchasing a new vehicle. Chevrolet, paying close attention to customer complaints with diesel vehicles, made it their goal to solve this problem. Using what they learned, Chevrolet created the new 2018 Chevy Equinox Diesel, which provides quiet and efficient rides for vehicle owners who are interested in a diesel vehicle without all the hassle.

2018 Chevy Equinox Diesel Provides Quiet and Efficient Rides

Originally released in Europe as an Opel, the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox was called a "whisper diesel" due to its surprisingly quiet acceleration and idle sounds. The new Equinox Diesel's engine combines this quietness with an impressive power under the hood. Its 1.6-liter turbo diesel engine provides drivers with 38 MPG highway speeds, making this crossover the current segment leader in efficiency. Its 137-horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque provides its drivers with a significant amount of power to conquer any road with minimal to no turbo lag while you drive.

2018 Chevy Equinox Diesel Provides Quiet and Efficient Rides

"Perhaps the most notable trait of the all-new 2018 Chevy Equinox Diesel is how quiet it is. Standing outside the car, you can't really tell the compact SUV is a diesel. The vehicle is quiet and void of the combustion rattle we have grown accustom to hearing on a diesel vehicle...the "whisper diesel" achieved its quiet characteristics through calculated belt placement, engine covers, decoupled cam cover with rubber-isolated fasteners, intake manifold clamshell cover and much more." - Max Goldberg, TheDrive

Dispelling the idea that a diesel engine should be loud and expensive, the 2018 Chevy Equinox Diesel provides quiet and efficient rides, whether you're heading to work or heading out on a road trip. Take a closer look at the 2018 Chevy Equinox today by reading up on our Equinox Model Overview! You can discover ratings, trim levels, styles, pricing, and much more about the Chevy Equinox Diesel. After you've done a little research, browse our Equinox Inventory to find the perfect model to fit your needs, then call us to set up a test drive! If you can't find what you're looking for, let us know and we'll order the vehicle you're looking for right away!

The Importance of Vehicle Filters & When to Replace Them - 08/29/2017

DURAND, Mich., – The filters in your vehicle are very important components that keep your car running well and should not be neglected. These filters keep all sorts of particles and pollutants from harming or irritating the passengers of the vehicle and its engine. Read on to learn the importance of vehicle filters and when to replace them to ensure your vehicle performs at peak performance.

The Importance of Vehicle Filters & When to Replace Them

Fuel Filter

Your fuel filter actually has two functions. For gasoline engines, the fuel filter will remove impurities in the gas and maintain the overall performance and lifespan of the engine. In the case of diesel engines, however, the fuel filter collects any water buildup that occurs in the engine thanks to its bowl-shaped design. You can then remove the water from your diesel engine via a drain plug. Check your vehicle's manufacturer recommendation on when to replace your fuel filter as it varies from model to model, but generally, you should look to replace it every 20,000-40,000 miles.

Oil Filter

When the oil in your engine cycles through the system, it will not only lubricate the internal components of the engine reducing the wear and tear but it will also flush out metal shavings and debris. The oil will carry these metal shavings to the filter, which will filter them out of the oil, therefore keeping them from building up in the engine and blocking any component functions. Your oil filter should be replaced each time you get your oil changed.

The Importance of Vehicle Filters & When to Replace Them

Engine Air filter

This particular filter filters out impurities in the air that is brought into the engine for combustion, and this filter helps the combustion process work more effectively and directly affects fuel efficiency. If your engine air filter is clogged up and not performing the combustion process properly both your fuel mpg and engine power will decrease. Ideally, your engine air filter should be changed out once a year.

Cabin Air Filter

This is the air filter that is designed to protect the passengers of the vehicle from allergens, dust, and other harmful particles in the air that is pulled into the cabin from outside. Similar to its engine counterpart, your cabin air filter should be replaced annually as well.

The health your engine, internal components, and you breathing air depends greatly on these vehicle filters and it is crucial to make sure they are still functioning at a high level. Neglecting these filters can run the risk of causing serious damage to your vehicle and limiting its performance. So feel free to ask our knowledgeable and friendly service staff any questions you may about the importance of vehicle filters and when to replace them next time you're in our Graff Chevrolet Durand Service Center to get any maintenance you need to be done. Or, schedule an appointment today to get your filters replace and ensure the longevity of your vehicle.

9 Tips to Clean Your Car Before a Road Trip

Remove bug splatter from your windshield and hood with wet dryer sheets

Grossed out by all the bug splatter on your windshield and the hood of your car? It can be tough to scrape and wash all those little guys off, but a simple trick that works amazingly well is to use wet dryer sheets as washcloth to remove them. They'll come right off! Also, if you're planning a trip to Northern Michigan, you may want to use this tip after the trip as well!

Clean your floor mats

Vacuuming only does so much to clean your carpeted floor mats, and they can get pretty gross. A professional auto dealer can clean them properly for you, but why do that when you can clean them at home? Start by taking your floor matts out of the vehicle, spray stain remover on them, and then toss them in the washing machine with laundry detergent. Put the washer settings on gentle, and let it run. When you pull them out, they look as clean as the day you bought the car! 

Use a squeegee & water to remove dog hair from seats

There's a better way to remove all of that pesky dog hairs from your seats and interior than vacuuming or using a lint roller. Use a spray bottle of water to spray the surfaces of your seats, and then use a hand squeegee to pull the dog hair up. You'll be amazed on how much better this method is a picking up clingy dogs hairs quickly.  

9 Tips to Clean Your Car Before a Road Trip

Clean your windshield wipers to improve their capability

Here's another clever trick to clean a vehicle component that will in-turn improve you driving and safety on the road. When your windshield wipers start to smear water across your windshield and leave gunky, slimey streaks its time to clean them off. Simply wipe down your wipers with generous amounts of rubbing alcohol and let them dry. This won't keep your wipers working perfectly forever, but it will extend their lifespan considerably.

Use a thin cloth covering a flathead screwdriver to clean small cracks

There's plenty of smalls cracks and crevices that accumulate dust, dirt, and grime in your vehicle. Unfortunately they're usually very hard to vacuum out or reach with a regular rag. The perfect way to clean clean out those hard to reach places is by covering a flathead screwdriver with a thin cloth and running it through the cracks and crevices. It may take some time to clean all over, but it will make your car look brand new. Q-tips and toothbrushes are also a good alternative!

9 Tips to Clean Your Car Before a Road Trip

Clean up crayon, melted wax, and other sticky messes with a clothes iron and newspaper

Seemingly impossible-to-clean-up sticky messes like crayons or melted wax are actually very simple to clean up on virtually any surface. All you need is a clothes iron and some newspaper. Simply turn on the iron and put lay the newspaper over the mess, then apply the iron to the newspaper directly over the spot of the mess and it will heat the residue up until its a liquid and soaks right into the newspaper. Remove the newspaper and voilà, good as new!

Purchase some air fresheners for the long drive

Long car rides can naturally get stuffy and smelly, so it's worth purchasing air fresheners either to hang from your rear view mirror or to plug into your air vents. They will help keep your ride nice and pleasant.

Use fitted sheets on the seats, under dogs and car seats

To keep you young kids and dogs from spilling, making messes, and shedding on your seats, cover the seats with fitted bed sheets to save yourself the clean up!

2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Competes in America's Longest Off-Road Race - 08/24/2017

DURAND, Mich., – The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 competed in America's longest off-road race recently, the Best in the Desert’s General Tire “Vegas to Reno” race presented by FOX. The 550-mile race had 350 entrants participate and the grueling course covers a mix of terrain including deserts and mountain passes as high as 8,000 ft above sea level. The tough and durable 2017 Colorado ZR2 was entered into the race by Hall Racing and driven by Chad Hall, himself.

2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Competes in America's Longest Off-Road Race

Hall Racing has a long history of racing with General Motors vehicles and are the winningest family of off-road racers in the legendary Baja 1000. Hall Racing's modifications to the Colorado ZR2 included body-mandated safety items such as a roll cage, a 44-gallon racing fuel tank and racing seats with safety harnesses, and more. The truck still used the stock 3.6L V-6 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission, along with a modified version of ZR2’s Multimatic DSSVTM damper technology. Additionally, this crew cab ZR2's performance in the race served as an ideal testing scenario for Chevy and the rugged ZR2 as well as the standard Colorado.

“The Colorado ZR2 is one of the most capable production platforms we’ve used as a foundation for our racing program,” said Chad Hall. “The base Colorado is strong and robust with the expected advantages of a midsize package. ZR2 adds great technology, like the Multimatic DSSVTM dampers and the front and rear locking differentials that are vital to stock class desert racing.”

2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Competes in America's Longest Off-Road Race

The 2017 Chevy Colorado ZR2 was the only stock truck to both compete in and finish the “Vegas to Reno” race, and was named 1st in its class by the Best in the Desert organization. Chad Hall and the Colorado ZR2 crossed the finish line in Carson City, Nevada after completing the course in 18 hours, 50 minutes and 16 seconds. After an impressive showing in this race, the Hall Racing Colorado ZR2 will compete in the Best in the Desert VT Construction “Tonopah 250” race presented by Polaris on October 19-22.

“This truck is a lot tougher than I thought it was going to be,” said Chad Hall. “I clobbered some things on the course that would’ve broken the many of the vehicles we competed with in the past.”

2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Competes in America's Longest Off-Road Race

Tough and demanding driving environments are what the Colorado ZR2 is built to handle and the Best in the Desert’s General Tire “Vegas to Reno” race presented by FOX was a perfect place to put it to the test. The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 competed in America's longest off-road race and demonstrated incredible performance and grit. If you're interested in a 2017 Chevrolet Colorado contact our friendly and knowledgeable sales team to set up a test drive of this rugged mid-size truck.

8 Things to Check on Your Car Before a Road Trip - 08/15/2017

DURAND, Mich., – Before taking a long road trip for vacation or driving up north for a holiday weekend, it's important to make sure your vehicle is up to the task! Prolonged periods of driving can put lots of stress on your vehicle's components and systems and you don't want anything to break down while you far away from home and the service centers you know and trust. So be prepared and keep your vehicle in top working condition by consulting our list of 8 things to check on your car before a road trip.

8 Things to Check on Your Car Before a Road Trip

Fluid Levels 

Most vehicle fluids have recommended mileage or time amounts needed for replacement or refilling. Engine oil and radiator, transmission, and coolant fluids are all crucial to your vehicle running properly. If you go on a long trip with prolonged periods of driving you could cause serious damage to internal components if these fluids aren't at proper levels. So before you head out of town, make sure to get your fluids topped off! Check your windshield wiper fluid as well, it's always important to keep your windows clean so you have a clear view of the road.

Tire Tread & Pressure

You can't always avoid getting a flat tire, but you can make sure your tires are fully inflated before heading out on your road trip. You can refill your tires at most gas stations or our service staff would be happy to do so for you next time you visit our Service Center. The recommended PSI level to fill your tires up to can be found in your vehicle's owner's manual, on the inside of the driver's door, or in some cases on the side of the tires themselves. To ensure your vehicle's tires can grip the road, stop, and handle properly, make sure your tire's tread isn't too worn down. You can test this by performing the famous "Penny Test" to check the tread level. If you can see the top of Abe Lincoln's head, your tires should really be replaced for your safety out on the road.

8 Things to Check on Your Car Before a Road Trip

Brake Pads

Often overlooked in terms of routine maintenance by the average driver, brakes and brake pads are extremely important and should be maintained and inspected regularly. Pay attention to any grinding or squealing sounds, reduced brake pedal responsiveness, and pulling or shaking of the steering wheel as signs that your brake pads need replacing. It's not a repair that can be put off either, as you run the risk of an accident happening or serious and costly component break down. Typically, you should have your brakes checked about every 5 months or every 5,000 miles and definitely before embarking on a long road trip.

Air Conditioning & Air Filter

Long drives in a hot car can be unbearable, so you should make sure to get your air conditioning system checked or fixed by our friendly and skilled service staff to make sure everyone on your road trip rides comfortably. Additionally, getting your air filter replaced (recommended every 35,000-45,000 miles) if it's clogged up and dusty can help improve engine performance, ideal for long periods of driving. 

Lights

Bring your vehicle into our Service Center or grab a friend to check if all of your lights, including headlights, brake lights, and turn signals are working properly. To ensure safety out on the road, make sure all your lights are illuminating and replace them if need be. Road trips often require night time driving, and the last thing you want is to have a headlight out, reducing your visibility for yourself and oncoming vehicles. Plus, you won't want to get a ticket for having a taillight out on your trip!
 

Hoses

It's quick and simple to get your hoses checked by our service technicians before your road trip. Hot engine fluid temperatures and other stressors can wear down hoses over time, making them more susceptible to cracks and leaks. Don't get stuck on the side of the road trying to replace a hose to your engine or radiator because they sprang a leak and now can't circulate important fluids to other components!

Battery

The average vehicle battery lasts about four years, but when you should always have it checked when you're visiting our Service Center. It takes only a moment for our technicians to check how well your battery is running and if it needs to be replaced soon. Your battery, like other components on this list, can derail your trip and keep your vehicle from running if it unexpectedly dies on you. As a precaution, we recommend always keeping a set of jumper cables in your car just in case.

Belts

Your vehicle's engines and other internal components are mostly run by belts that can wear down and crack over time. If while you're on your road trip, something major like your serpentine belt breaks, you'll be stuck on the side of the road waiting for a tow truck to come make a costly repair. It's more much cost-effective to get your belts checked and replaced if need be at your local automotive service center. You can check your engine belts yourself by turning them sideways with your hand so you can see the friction surface. Look for ragged, torn, cracked surfaces or if you can see fiber cords, which are all signs that the belt needs to be replaced. Also, if you hear loud screeches when you pull away from a stoplight, a loose belt is probably the cause. If you think your belts need to be replaced, schedule an appointment at our Graff Chevrolet Durand Service Center and we'll get them taken care of right away.

8 Things to Check on Your Car Before a Road Trip

Every component of your vehicle plays a huge part in making sure you reach your destination safe and sound on a road trip. If you bring your vehicle into our Service Center, we can inspect it to make sure it's ready to handle your adventures! Use our list of 8 things to check on your car before a road trip to maximize your fun and ensure a smooth drive! In our opinion, even the best road trips seldom go according to plan, but that doesn't mean they should be derailed by breakdowns and other automotive issues! If you need any automotive maintenance done, schedule an appointment at the Graff Chevrolet Durand Service Center.

    DURAND, Mich., – Chevrolet recently made a major announcement and introduction by unveiling the 2018 Camaro ZL1 NASCAR Cup race car. The new Camaro ZL1 will compete in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and make its debut in February 2018 during Daytona Speedweeks to kick off the 2018 NASCAR season. Powered by a supercharged 90-degree V-8 engine with 650-horsepower and a configuration similar the Cup racing engines, the 2018 Camaro ZL1 joining the Camaro SS in the NASCAR circuits. The Camaro SS has been racing in the NASCAR XFINITY Series since 2013.

    Chevrolet Introduces 2018 Camaro ZL1 NASCAR Cup Race Car

    Jimmie Johnson, driver of the #48 Lowe’s Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports and Seven-time Cup champion, drove the new racing Camaro ZL1 into the reveal event at Chevrolet's headquarters in Detroit. 

    “The new Camaro ZL1 is a great-looking race car with a lot of heritage behind it, which will make it a big hit with fans,” said Johnson. “And as someone who’s enjoyed the ZL1 on the street, I’m really looking forward to getting this new race car on the track.”

    Chevrolet Introduces 2018 Camaro ZL1 NASCAR Cup Race Car

    Chevrolet Introduces 2018 Camaro ZL1 NASCAR Cup Race Car

    The ZL1 name was originally given to a Chevrolet-developed all-aluminum racing engine in the 1960s. The engine was dominant in the road racing scene, and then in 1969, drove a group of dealers to use Chevrolet’s special-order system to get the ZL1 engine installed in 69 regular-production Camaros. The specially outfitted Camaros then became legendary vehicles and performed incredibly well on the road and the dragstrip.

    When designing the new Camaro ZL1 for NASCAR, Chevrolet engineers were tasked with keeping the iconic ZL1 design character while ensuring the aerodynamic performance needed to compete. The engineers employed an array of tools including computational fluid dynamics analysis and reduced-scale and full-scale wind-tunnel testing to design a car that can perform at close to 200 mph. The Camaro ZL1 has a lot to live up to, from its rich heritage to its more recent legacy. Chevrolet drivers have achieved a 70 Cup series wins and a record 30 Cup championships, including Jimmie Johnson in 2016. The Detroit motor brand's drivers also earned a record 39 NASCAR manufacturer titles, including 13 consecutive titles from 2003-2015.

    “Chevrolet, Camaro, and ZL1 are all synonymous with winning, both on and off the track,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president of GM Global Product Development. “We are thrilled to run Camaro in NASCAR next year, with the time-honored and track-tested ZL1 badge, and we’re just as excited for our drivers, teams, fans, and customers.”
