The quest for quality and reliability is an ongoing endeavor at Buick, but every once in a while it’s nice to get some recognition.
In the latest J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study, Buick was ranked as the fifth most reliable brand in the country, a flat improvement from last year and placing the automaker far ahead of other American luxury brands like Lincoln.
J.D. Power’s 2014 study tracks 2011 model year vehicles in the third year of ownership, ensuring that it doesn’t inappropriately jump to conclusions about the reliability of more modern vehicles. The Buick Lucerne took the lead for the fourth consecutive year in the Large Car segment while the Buick LaCrosse came in 2nd in the Midsize Car category.
“Buick customers today cite their top reasons for purchase as overall quality, exterior style, and value,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick marketing. “Retaining a focus on quality is at the core of every model we bring to market.”
Chevrolet also had a great showing with the Volt taking the win in the Compact Car segment and the Camaro doing the same in the Midsize Sporty Car segment. Come find all of these vehicles at College Chevy Buick!
So you found one of our great deals for a new Buick; but you, like the responsible car buyer you are, find yourself wondering how much it will actually cost to own your new Buick after you autograph all the paperwork. We at College Chevrolet Buick have some good news that will put a quick end to your research and get you behind the wheel of your new vehicle: Three Buick models earned Kelley Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost to Own Award for 2014.
The 2014 Buick Verano was named the least expensive car to own for the entry-level luxury car segment. The Encore earned the award for the luxury compact SUV/crossover category, and the Enclave won among competitors in the luxury full-size SUV/crossover class.
“Buick puts the customer first, not only offering a great portfolio of vehicles, but maintaining quality and dependability long after the vehicle is purchased,” said Tony DiSalle, Buick’s vice president of marketing.
Kelley Blue Book calculates cost to own values taking into account depreciation as well as recurring expenses like gas, insurance, and financing fees.
Now you can head to College Chevrolet Buick assured you’re getting a good deal today and for years to come.
The Seattle Seahawks came to Super Bowl XLVIII ready to play and it showed with their 43 – 8 victory over the Denver Broncos. A media panel and fan vote on www.superbowl.com determined Malcom Smith, a linebacker for the Seattle Seahawks, the most valuable player of Sunday’s game.
With this award, Smith was presented with a new Chevy Silverado, but not just any Silverado, a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado High Country, the official MVP vehicle of Super Bowl XLVIII. Smith was also presented with the Pete Rozelle Trophy (named after Alvin Ray “Pete” Rozelle who is accredited with making the NFL into one of the most successful sports leagues in the world). Smith was recognized for his excellent efforts in not only the Super Bowl game, but in past games this season.
The Chevrolet High Country features 20-inch chrome wheels, all weather tires, a chrome grill, halogen projector headlamps, chrome body side moldings, and chrome door handles and mirrors.

The 2014 Chevy Malibu has achieved a milestone in safety by being awarded the highest possible 5-star Overall Vehicle Score by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) during their New Car Assessment Program.
Chief among the reasons for the Malibu’s NHTSA 5-star safety test success are the numerous active and passive safety features that are both standard and available for the midsize sedan. The Malibu offers an ultra-high-strength steel safety cage, rollover protection, and 10 airbags—including knee airbags for driver and front passenger—standard.
In addition, available active safety features make the Malibu one of the safest and most intelligent vehicles on the road. These features include Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Side Blind Zone Alert, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Every Malibu also comes pre-packaged with six months of OnStar service.
“Safety is an increasingly important consideration for new vehicle buyers, especially for those in the midsize segment,” said Gay Kent, General Motors general director of Vehicle Safety and Crashworthiness, in a press release. “The customer is at the center of our day-to-day operations and when we design vehicles, it’s their safety that we have in mind.”
Here at College Chevy, we know that safety is of the utmost importance to you; that’s why we are proud to sell Chevrolet vehicles, which is the most 5-star safety-awarded vehicle lineup on the road today. To test drive one of these dependable and exciting vehicles, stop in and see us today!
Did you make it to The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) this year? No worries if you didn’t, we are bringing some of our favorite Chevrolet and Buick vehicles from the show right to you!
The show is taking place at the COBO Center in Detroit through Sunday, so you still have a chance to make it out to see some of these great new cars as well as some very creative concepts.
NAIAS, better known as the Detroit Auto Show traces its roots back to 1907 as a small, regional show. In 1989, a group of auto dealers within the Detroit Auto Dealers Association (DADA) aimed to make the show more international. The NAIAS show celebrates its 25th Anniversary as an international show this year.
NAIAS is the perfect stage for automakers like General Motors to debut their new cars and lineups. Let’s take a look at Chevrolet and Buick at NAIAS.

Along with sweeping National Car and Truck of the Year (NACTOY), Chevrolet has also swept Best Car and Truck of 2014 from one of the top auto authorities, Cars.com. These awards were presented to Chevrolet at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) this week.
Alan Batey, GM’s Senior VP of Global Chevrolet says “Winning these awards is a huge honor for Chevrolet. The face that the top vehicle in both these categories is a Chevrolet speaks volumes about the strength of our entire portfolio.”
Chevrolet really shined this year with a redesigned Silverado. Cars.com noted its great chassis strength, refreshed and redesigned interior, and an upgrade to MyLink infotainment system. Cars.com noted that the Impala broke out of its rental car/fleet vehicle feel for the 2014 model year. They admired the new styling and impressive features that the Impala had to offer.
We aren’t surprised that Chevrolet has been winning awards for its redesigned and upgraded models. If you are in the market for a new car or truck, come to College Chevy in Albion to check out the award winning Silverado and Impala! We have an excellent inventory to choose from.
The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado was recently named Four Wheeler Magazine’s 2014 Pickup Truck of the Year. We aren’t surprised as the all-new Silverado has been winning awards left and right.
To come to their conclusion the trucks up for the award were put through a variety of terrain and other challenges to test the strengths and weaknesses of the trucks. Each truck was then scored through Four Wheeler Magazine’s intense scoring system. Points were awarded based on the following categories: Trail Performance (worth 30% of final score), Empirical (worth 25% of final score), On Pavement (worth 20% of final score), Interior (worth 15%), and Exterior (worth 10%).
The testing took place in California, where there was multiple terrains to experience. The other competitors included a RAM 2500 and a Toyota Tundra. The winning Silverado was a 1500 LTZ Z71 Crew Cab. Four Wheeler Magazine said that the Silverado was fun to drive off-road, the interior of the cabin offered a modern quality feel, and they liked the advanced features of the truck bed (step in the back bumper was dually noted!). The magazine also liked the smooth on-road ride that the Silverado had to offer.
The Silverado deserved the first-place finish from Four Wheeler Magazine! To experience the 2014 Silverado for yourself, be sure to stop by our dealership in Albion, Michigan for a test drive!
Breakups can be hard—especially if you’ve been together for a decade. General Motors recently announced that the Chevrolet brand will be breaking up with Europe, removing the American brand from European markets after a decade of dedication to the continent, choosing to focus instead on the GM Opel and Vauxhall divisions.
Beginning in 2016, GM will operate solely under the Opel and Vauxhall name, ceasing delivery of Chevrolet vehicles by the end of 2015. As the fourth-largest global automotive brand, Chevrolet will move its focus from selling an entire lineup to selling only select iconic vehicles to its customers, such as the Corvette. Just because Chevrolet is leaving Europe behind though, doesn’t mean that the car maker will be leaving its customers high and dry.
“Our customers can rest assured that we will continue to provide warranty, parts and services for their Chevrolet vehicles, and for vehicles purchased between now and the end of 2015,” said Thomas Sedran, president and managing director of Chevrolet Europe. “We want to thank our customers and dealers for their loyalty to the Chevrolet brand here in Europe.”
