This month the spotlight is on our very own Service Adviser, Derek Mason. Derek is a new face to the company, having only worked at College Chevy for about three weeks. He’s been in the automotive industry for a couple years and previously worked as a Tire Technician at a discount tire shop. Derek is originally from South Lyon, MI but now resides in Grass Lake where he enjoys going on nature walks or outdoor adventures with his dog Buddy.
Derek also enjoys watching That 70’s Show, but when football season is here, he spends his time cheering on the Detroit Lions and Michigan Wolverines. As for the automotive side of things, Derek currently drives a 2015 Chevy Sonic and it’s his favorite car he’s ever owned. If he could chose a car that would match his personality, Derek would say the Colorado fits him perfectly. Even though Derek has a lot of Chevy favorites, his dream car is a 2014 Chevy Camaro ZL1 that he fell in love with the first time he took it for a ride.
We are very excited to have Derek as part of our staff and we hope you get the opportunity to work with him in our service drive. His favorite part about his job is being able to help out the customers, so don’t hesitate to come to Derek with any questions or concerns that you have.
What better way to celebrate a new school year than with a new car? Whether you need a car to drop the kids off at school or you’re a freshman in college looking for a car that will get you to campus and back home safely, Chevrolet has a great lineup for you to choose from.
Recently Kelley Blue Book named the 2014 Chevy Sonic as one of the best “Back to School” cars. This subcompact is perfect for those looking something that is going to be stylish, affordable, and has a great number of features. This is the third year in a row that the Sonic has been recognized by KBB.com for this honor.
KBB mentions that the Sonic is a great choice for students because of its versatility and ease-of-use. The Sonic includes just enough technology to satisfy the needs of older high school students and those in college. Parents love the Sonic because of its vast amount of safety features and its affordability.
We love the Sonic because it is made right here in Michigan at the Orion Assembly Plant in Orion Township. If you would like to know more about the 2014 Chevy Sonic, stop by and see us near Marshall, Michigan! The team here at College Chevy would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
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.
