Buick Rear Park Assist

back sensorToday, we are focusing on safety features that exist on many of the new Buick cars in Thunder Bay Ontario.  We know that the Buick Avenir, one of the latest Buick cars on the market in Canada, has numerous safety and driver assistance technologies available.  We ended up listing them in the previous post, but this time around, we want to go into more details regarding a subject that is very important in new Buick cars in Canada.  In fact many of these particular safety features on other Regal Sportback models come standard on Buick Avenir, including Rear Park Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, LED headlamps with auto leveling, cornering lamps and driver side auto-dimming mirrors. Additional active safety technologies, including Adaptive Cruise Control – Advanced, are also available.

Let’s start with rear park assist. The thing with this new Buick car feature in Thunder Bay is, much like many other added feature that has come along in the last decade or so, it is not at all necessary in order to safely own and operate a new car, right?  But wouldn’t it be great if we knew for sure that we could fit nicely in that apparently tight spot? What if you are too uncertain of your own abilities to give that same spot a try? “That’s where active parking features can be your best friend and can tuck you into that dreaded space right in front of that restaurant.”

While most cars can be optioned to include a backup camera and parking sensors, active parking features take it to the next level and this would be something any Buick car owner in Thunder Bay would tell you.  Especially those who opted for the park assist feature.  It’s without complication when it comes to execution, “Simply, press a button and the car searches for a spot large enough to accommodate itself—and alerts you when it locates one. The onboard screen then guides you through your next steps. All you’ll need to do at that point is control the gas, brake, and gearshift while the car steers you into that spot perfectly.”


Safety Features in Your Buick Cars

safetyWhen shopping for that perfect Buick Car in Thunder Bay that will meet all of your family’s needs beyond a shadow of a doubt, it is imperative to consider all aspects of what you family needs, up to and including all of the latest safety that technology has to offer on the roadways, right?  What is the point in getting the latest and greatest new vehicle if you overlook the potential safety of your loved ones?

The great news is that Buick has a long history of developing and implementing various safety technologies that match the luxury that has come to be expected within the Buick line, so in most cases, you can have your cake and eat it too with a Thunder Bay Buick Car in Canada. These features, which come available on all Buick cars and SUVs, are designed to offer drivers the reality of comfort and safety both behind the wheel and in the passenger seat.   A few of the latest features that attribute to the safest ride available are: forward collision warning, which uses cameras in the front of the Buick cars in Canada that operate with the ability to warn drivers of oncoming potential impacts before they happen.  According to one Buick Dealership, “The technology is simple, yet very effective: if sensors detect an object rapidly approaching the front of the Buick vehicle, an alarm will sound, allowing the driver to react accordingly.”

Lane departure warning is another simple, yet rather effective means to provide safety on the roadways in your new Thunder Bay Buick Cars.  “This technology scans the road markings to alert drivers when they drift out of lanes, just like an extra set of eyes.”  Similar to Forward Collision Warning, an alarm will sound if a driver crosses over lane markers without a turn signal engaged.  There are plenty of other safety features we can and will write about in future post here on behalf of your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealership in Canada.

Safety Alert Seat is a tool that GM designed whereby the Buick Cars driver seat communicates with the driver via vibrations, indicating the direction of a potential accident.  Automatic Collision Preparation uses radar technology in new Buick Cars to detect potential crash threats and automatically trigger brakes when need be.  Forward Collision Alert sends warning to driver if camera perceived possible threat from the front of your new car.  Some of the other high tech safety features in a new Buick car, truck or SUV are as follows:  Full Speed Range Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Change Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Rear Vision Camera.

Amazingly enough, that’s not all your new Buick from Dominion Motors in Ontario has to offer you and your loved ones.  These new Buick cars in the LaCrosse family have eight total standard airbags which go along beautifully with the crash avoidance capabilities listed above.  There are thorax airbags in the rear of these Buick LaCrosse cars which are innovative indeed, helping to protect the upper torso portion of a rear passenger.  As if all of the above weren’t enough, the newest Buick Cars in the LaCrosse lineup also feature StabiliTrak (Buick’s version of electronic stability control), all-speed traction control and Intelligent Brake Assist on antilock brakes…all of which greatly increase the safety in handling these Buick Cars.  Keep those you love in good hands when you’re behind the wheel.  Drive a Buick.
