Cruze-ing around Bay City

BAY CITY, MI - Jan. 31, 2012 – The 2012 Chevrolet Cruze is setting the new standard for compact cars. Stylish, efficient, and safe the Chevy Cruze has raised the bar for all compact cars in the industry. Chevrolet went with the philosophy, “solutions not sacrifices” when they were designing the 2012 Cruze. At Graff Chevrolet in Bay City, we believe that there is something in the Cruze for everyone. From engine performance, technology features, to interior comfort, you will be sure to fall in love with all aspects the Cruze has to offer and with MSRP starting at $16,800 it can easily fit into almost any budget. 

Cruze-ing around never looked so good

The 2012 Chevrolet Cruze offers top-notch fuel efficiency without skimping on performance. The 1.4L turbocharged engine in the Cruze Eco gets an exceptional 42-mpg, the best highway mileage of any gas engine in America. With that kind of fuel efficiency you can drive all the way to Central Michigan University and back with just over 2 gallons of gas. 

The standard 10 airbags will help protect you in the event of a crash
Parents can take comfort in allowing their kids to drive the Cruze. The Chevrolet Cruze has received a 5 star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the top safety pick from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety for several good reasons. The StabiliTrak® electronic stability control system with traction control will help keep your car in control on slippery roads by making necessary adjustments to the breaks and engine torque. The 2012 Chevy Cruze comes equipped with 10 standard airbags including frontal side-impact and knee air bags for the driver and front passenger, and a high-strength steel safety cage and roof crush resistance. If you are involved in an auto accident critical information is sent to the OnStar command center by way of the OnStar automatic crash response system and a trained advisor can get you the help you need right away.

With OnStar you can get turn-by-turn directions with a click of a button
For drivers looking to enhance their driving experience, the Cruze has options to equip your ride with all the bells and whistles your heart desires. With OnStar help is just one button push away. Just tell the OnStar representative you want to go to Mulligans Pub and they will give you turn-by-turn directions to get you there. Connect your Cruze to your smartphone with the myChevrolet and OnStar RemoteLink apps free from the iTunes Store and Android Marketplace. You can also connect your smartphone via Bluetooth and you can take calls with the push of a button without ever taking your hands off the wheel. You can get a live concert experience with the 9 speaker, 250–watt Pioneer premium audio system.

Top 5 Driving Tips for Impoving Fuel Economy

Bay City, MI -

1. Check you tire pressure as a combined 10 pounds under the recommended pressure can cut your fuel efficiency by more than 3 percent.

2. Avoid any changes to your vehicle's aerodynamics.  Up to a third of your fuel is used to overcome wind resistance at highway speeds, so even little changes like bike racks and window flags can have a big impact on fuel economy.  When the season is over, take down you ski racks and sports flags.

3. Avoid carrying extra weight for long periods of time.  Every 100 pounds of cargo can decrease fuel efficiency by 2 percent or more.

4. Follow you Chevrolet Certified Service schedule, and don't ignore the "check engine" light.  A serious engine problem can cost up to 40 percent of your fuel economy.

5. Try consolidating your errands into one trip, or one afternoon.  An engine at operating temperatture is up to 50 percent more efficient than a cold engine.
