2017 Buick Lacrosse

keyWhen it comes to Buick Cars in Thunder Bay, the new 2017 Buick LaCrosse has many in Canada ready to roll.  Many of the reviews have already come in for these new Buick Cars and they are all saying very promising things.  Edmunds, has the following to report for the United States and Canada, “If you’re shopping for a large sedan, the 2017 Buick LaCrosse is quite simply one of your best options.  Completely redesigned and massively improved for 2017, the new LaCrosse should easily meet your desires if you’re searching for a quieter, more comfortable and more refined car than what is offered in the midsize sedan segment (think Honda Accord and Ford Fusion).”

One thing to bear in mind, however, is that to compare these Buick Cars with other sedans on the market would be a mistake in the fact that they are in a whole other class of luxury.  Buick has been attempting this for awhile now and finally hit the nail on the head with these Thunder Bay Buick Cars in the 2017 LaCrosse lineup.  The Avalon, Cadenza and Impala pale in comparison to the Buick LaCrosse when it comes to features and comfort.

You will see nothing but class on the inside of these Buick Cars and styling that just keeps on going.  “In addition to its classy styling and high-quality, well-equipped cabin, the new LaCrosse offers the refinement, poise and sophistication you expect from the best luxury cars. It can be both comfortable on the highway and stable and secure on curvy back roads without bobbing about like the S.S. Minnow on a three-hour tour.”  When it comes to driving and the spot behind the wheel, your Thunder Bay Dealer will concur, that you will feel total composure, unlike some of the models that came before.  “It is especially composed when the LaCrosse is equipped with the 20-inch wheels that come bundled with a more advanced suspension design.”  We encourage you to drop by your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealer and drive one today.

New or Old GMC Trucks?

new and oldAre you looking for a totally redesigned SUV in the GMC Trucks lineup at your Dominion Motors GMC Truck Dealer in Canada?  Or, are you looking for the tried and true SUV that we know of as the Acadia?  “There’s an all-new 2017 GMC Acadia that’s been completely redesigned, but this isn’t it.  No, this is the 2017 GMC Acadia Limited, which is a carryover of the first-generation model that debuted a decade ago.”

How will you know which of these GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay is best for you?  Well, it really depends on a few things.  “The new model is aiming for a slightly different customer, so there are a few reasons to consider the older model over its more modern sibling.”  How much space you need in your GMC Truck or SUV is the first considering factor.   “The most significant reason is space, as the Limited is quite a bit larger inside and out.  It can seat up to eight passengers, with enough room in the third row to accommodate two adults, which is a rarity in the class. Cargo capacity is also very generous, approaching the space you’d find in a minivan. The newer Acadia maxes out at seven passengers, with much smaller rear seats and less cargo space.”  So, the older one is best for larger families, or those like mine who have more than one hockey player and therefore, huge equipment bags to haul around, along with people.

The newest GMC Acadia in the SUV and GMC Truck family?  Well, with it, you get all of the latest in technology that you, of course, won’t benefit from with the later model and even recent model, but Limited trim level of the older generation GMC Acadia.  However, “you’d be hard-pressed to match the interior volume of the Acadia Limited.”  There are some other full size SUVs to consider in the same class, many of which have been seen for sale at your local dealerships, the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander are both in the same class, but the GMC Acadia gets a better reputation and does the best in sales at your local GMC Truck Dealer in Thunder Bay.  Swing by and drive one today.

Improper Tire Wear on Your Buick Cars

tiresWe have been on a tire kick, writing on behalf of your Buick Car Dealership in Thunder Bay ON and now, we move on to discuss, not only the importance of checking the pressure in your Buick Car tires, but also making sure that they are in the proper alignment.  Both of these things are important to stay on top of and you can have your Service center at your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealership do both for you.

Remember, that like brake pads, when they wear out, is partly up to you.  If you use due diligence, then you can add to the life of your Buick Car tires.  “Check the pressure in all of your tires, including the spare, every month.  Also check it before going on a long trip or when you plan to carry extra load. You can find the vehicle manufacturer’s tire pressure specifications on a placard/label affixed to the driver’s door or along the door jam. You can also check your vehicle owner’s manual for tire pressure recommendations.”

Tire alignment is another big category of issues when it comes to tires that need replacing sooner than they should.  If you don’t ensure that you Buick  Cars get their alignment checked and fixed periodically, then you are liable to end up in a boat of people who have to replace their Buick Car tires sooner than should be.  Here is what one tire manufacturer writes online, “Tire alignment, also known as wheel alignment, refers to the adjustment of the vehicle’s steering and suspension components – the system that connects and controls the motion of the wheels. It is not an adjustment of the tires or wheels themselves. The key to proper alignment is to adjust the angles of the tires and their contact with the road in accordance with the vehicle manufacturer’s specifications for parameters such as camber, toe, and caster.”  When the tires on your Thunder Bay Buick Cars are out of alignment, then you will have premature and uneven wear.  It’s that simple.
