Rene Gedeon

Rene Gedeon

Rene Gedeon is a Sales Consultant here at College Chevrolet Buick and has been with us since 2007. Rene is a Lansing native and currently resides in Dimondale. He has been working in the automotive business for about 12 years.

If Rene could have any car, he would pick a Corvette. He has owned one in the past and completely fell in love with the performance. Currently, he drives a Chevy Equinox, but he thinks that the Tahoe matches his personality best. He says that the worst car that he’s ever driven was a Chevy Corsica.

When not at work, you’ll find Rene at the bowling alley, hanging out with family, and playing the guitar. He is a big fan of “Impractical Jokers” and “Two and a Half Men”. He also enjoys cheering on the Detroit Lions.

Rene says that his favorite part about working here at College Chevy is meeting people and helping customers solve problems. He also enjoys helping people get what they want. If you’re in the market for a new car, stop by and see Rene! He would be happy to help you find the perfect new ride!

See the Future with OnStar Proactive Alerts

2016 Chevy Equinox InteriorChevrolet wants to help you catch problems in your vehicle before they happen. And now, that’s possible, thanks to OnStar Proactive Alerts.

Chevy is the first automaker in the industry to develop this kind of technology, similar to the technology used in a Boeing 787. In the jet, in-flight messages can be sent to ground crews that alert them of parts that need inspection before the plane hits the ground.

OnStar Proactive alerts work similarly, by continuously monitoring the health of the starter motor, fuel pump, and 12-volt battery. If anything isn’t functioning as it should, you’ll get an alert from OnStar instructing you to take your car in for service.

Currently, this predictive technology is available to OnStar subscribers who own a 2016 Chevy Silverado, Tahoe, Suburban, Corvette, and Equinox.

“With Proactive Alerts, we now can offer customers even greater peace-of-mind of taking the guesswork out of when to service their vehicle,” said Steve Hollan, chief technologist for Vehicle Health Management at General Motors.

With these updates, you’ll get alerts on your vehicle’s health every time your car is started, and while you’re driving.

Now behind the wheel, you’ll be able to fix your car before you even notice something’s wrong!

Chevy Transformers Return to the Theaters This Summer in “Age of Extinction”

At this point, with the fourth installment of Michael Bay’s “Transformers” movie franchise set to hit theaters on June 27, the Chevrolet brand—and the iconic Chevrolet Camaro which Bumblebee transforms into—is one of the most integral parts of the franchise formula. That won’t change in the newest movie, which is subtitled “Age of Extinction.” Along with the Bumblee Camaro, “Extinction” will also feature a Corvette Stingray, a Trax, and even a Sonic Rally Car.

“The Transformers movies have been a great partnership for Chevrolet by allowing us to introduce our vehicles to new fans, young and old, around the world,” said Tim Mahoney, chief marketing officer, Global Chevrolet. “Now for the fourth time, you’ll see a Camaro as a heroic Autobot, a fitting role for one of the stars of Chevrolet’s lineup.”

Whether you like giant summer action blockbusters, goofy mythology and dialogue, tons and tons of explosions, or wicked Chevrolet vehicles involved in death-defying stunts, “Age of Extinction” has something for you. Check it out in theaters, then hurry in to get your own “Transformer” here at College Chevy. We can’t promise you that you’ll be involved in any fights involving giant robotic dinosaurs from space—but we think you’ll be having quite enough fun that you won’t really mind that, anyways.
