Stains on the upholstery is a major turn off for buyers and coffee and ketchup stains are almost impossible for even professionals to remove as it turns out.

We are talking about maintaining the value of your new Buick car for as long as you can and how gently, or not, you drive it can weigh in significantly.  “Jack-rabbit starts, harsh acceleration, sudden jerky stops, reckless cornering and other types of rough driving make the parts of an automobile deteriorate faster.” If you consider the addition of sloppy, careless parking you recognize that your new Buick cars in Thunder Bay ON will soon have dents, scrapes, scratches, chipped paint and tire damage and be in less than ideal condition.

Research Into Buick Car Safety Features

safety signIn our research and writing on behalf of your Buick car dealership in Thunder Bay ON, we came across many safety features available in a new Buick car in Canada, some brand new and others have been around for some time.  The 2013 model year brought with it many added safety features for new Buick cars in Thunder Bay.  “Buick added a host of safety features for 2013: a standard backup camera and optional cross-traffic and blindspot alerts to the Verano, a standard front-center airbag for the Enclave and optional forward collision and lane departure warnings for the new Encore.”

An intriguing find in our research was that Buick, rather than repurposing the radar from adaptive cruise control mounted near or in the car’s grille — often the way collision warning systems work — decided to make the Buick Encore capable of seeing oncoming obstacles with a windshield-mounted camera that takes 10 to 12 images per second.  “It looks at the change in size of [the] object as you approach it,” GM safety engineer Ray Kiefer told us last week. “It works much like the human eye.”
