Auto News - 2014 Corvette Revealed January 13th

First Drive of Seventh Generation Corvette Prototype

Camouflaged 2014 Corvette offered as free download in Gran Turismo®5 


Detroit - Chevrolet and Polyphony Digital Inc., the developers of the award-winning Gran Turismo® franchise, collaborated to provide an authentic driving experience in a seventh-generation Corvette prototype currently available to only a handful of people in the world.
During the creation of the virtual Corvette prototype, careful attention was paid to the tiniest details from the creases and wrinkles in the soft camouflage used to disguise the new design to specific driving characteristics that are currently being tuned and refined ahead of the vehicle’s official debut in January.

“Until now, only the most skilled drivers on the Corvette team have been authorized to push the test prototypes to the limits on some of the most challenging track surfaces in the world,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Global Marketing. “Through this unique collaboration with Gran Turismo, Chevrolet is able, for the first time, to give performance car enthusiasts access to such an exclusive driving experience.”

All six previous generations of the Corvette have been available to players of the Gran Turismo series since the game’s inception and the Chevrolet nameplate remains one of the most popular vehicles to race. The camouflaged Corvette C7 Test Prototype is immediately available for download through the PlayStation® Store from the PlayStation®3 at no additional cost. It can be driven on some of the world’s renowned race tracks, including Daytona International Speedway and the infamous Nurburgring – one of the track surfaces used in testing to evaluate the new Corvette’s driving dynamics.

“Gran Turismo has had many firsts and we’re excited to partner with Chevrolet for yet another – bringing the first-ever Chevrolet prototype vehicle into a racing game,” said Kazunori Yamauchi, president of Polyphony
Digital, Inc. “As car enthusiasts, we’re thrilled to give fans this extraordinary level of access to the seventh generation Corvette that otherwise would not be possible.”

The Gran Turismo series has sold more than 67 million games since its inception and remains the highest-selling PlayStation-exclusive franchise of all time.


Chevrolet will introduce the 2014 Corvette on Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013. For more information and video content, please visit www.one13thirteen.com. Enthusiasts can join the conversation about the next-generation Corvette and keep track of new announcements on Facebook (facebook.com/corvette) and Twitter@Chevrolet(#Corvette). Fans that follow the

Hudson Valley Region Winter Car Care Tips

Keeping everything in tune can mean the difference between a safe, smooth ride and a trip to the repair shop.


* Check Your Antifreeze/Coolant
Antifreeze helps control the temperature of a vehicle’s engine. Since it remains liquid and does not freeze in cold temperatures, antifreeze also helps protect the engine during extreme cold starts. Servicing your vehicle’s cooling system according to your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations can help you avoid costly repairs down the line. Check your owners’ manual for how often it should be replaced.
* Watch the Wiper Blades
The normal life expectancy for most windshield wiper blades is six to 12 months. Check and clean the windshield wiper blades or replace them if necessary. Checking and replacing them as needed can improve visibility to help avoid a very dangerous situation on the road -- particularly in snowy and stormy conditions.



* Make Sure the Battery is Strong
A weak battery is less reliable and can take longer to start your car on cold mornings. In fact, a weak battery could lose about one third of its power or more in colder conditions (e.g. below 32 degrees Fahrenheit). Make sure that connections are tight and free of corrosion and have your battery tested to ensure it has ample power to withstand the cold. Start the car with the heater, lights and window defrosters turned off to minimize battery strain.

* In Case of Emergency
Maintain a vehicle emergency kit including a first aid kit, jumper cables, flashlight, bottled water, extra blankets, gloves and hat, granola/energy bars, duct tape, and a can of Fix-a-Flat. You never know when you will need these essentials.

* Clean the Engine Air Filter
The engine air filter is a vehicle’s lung. A clean air filter helps the engine combust an optimal air-to-fuel mixture, making it run more smoothly and efficiently. When your air filter is clogged, your engine has to work harder and therefore is not operating at peak performance. Check your vehicle owner’s manual to find out when it needs to be replaced.

* Pay Attention to Oil Grade
Motor oil lubricates the engine, keeping it cool and reducing the friction between moving parts. As motor oil circulates, it also cleans away harmful dirt and contaminants. In general, you should use the lightest grade of oil your vehicle’s manufacturer recommends for the conditions you drive in. During the winter, this may mean an even lighter grade than usual. Most vehicle owner’s manual specifies the correct grade of motor oil for your vehicle during certain driving conditions and seasons.

* Keep an Eye on Tire Pressure
Under-inflated tires create extra friction where the rubber meets the road. Improperly inflated tires also wear unevenly, which can impact your vehicle’s traction on the road and possibly lead to a dangerous blowout. Check your tire pressure regularly and make sure all of them are filled to the correct level -- and remember your spare tire, which can lose pressure in the cold.

Proper tire pressure is vehicle-specific. Tire pressure information for a vehicle is found on a decal typically in the vehicle’s door jamb or in the vehicle owner’s manual. Do not follow the pressure listed on the sidewall of the tire, as this number is specific to the tire, not the vehicle.

Hudson Valley- Poughkeepsie Region Avoiding Animal-Related Accidents

It doesn't matter what part of the world you live in, there are undoubtedly free-roaming animals in residence that have caused havoc with local traffic. In the U.S. alone, the National Safety Council reported over a half-million animal-related auto accidents in 2003-a trend that has increased with time. Whether you live in an area populated with deer, moose, cows, turkeys, or any animal substantial enough to do damage to your vehicle, there are steps you can take to avoid a costly collision with wildlife:
  1. Animal-related auto accidents tend to occur before and directly after sunrise- be especially on the lookout when driving at this time of day.
  2. Drive carefully in posted animal crossing zones-these areas are known for large populations of a particular species such as deer, for example.
  3. If it is dark out, use your high beams when there is no oncoming traffic. Animal eyes shine in the dark, and you have a better chance of spotting them at a distance.
  4. If an animal is close by, honk your horn and flash your high beams to scare it off. You've heard the term 'deer in headlights', flashing your lights should break the trance and effect action.
  5. If an animal is on or near the road, stay in your lane and brake firmly without locking up your brakes. At a slower speed you will have more time to consider- and take-the proper course of action.
  6. This last tip is an obvious but important one: always wear your seatbelt. Hitting an animal at any rate of speed can cause injury-even death.
Although mostly common sense, these tips are important to keep at top-of-mind when driving. Often, we only consider other drivers as a source of danger on the road, but the reality is that animals are unpredictable and many times we don't even realize that they are there. Awareness and preparedness are the keys to safety.

Chevrolet Camaro Will Debut in 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series

Chevrolet will have a new entry in the NASCAR Nationwide Series in 2013: Camaro, the top-selling sports car in America, will make its series debut next February at Daytona International Speedway.

“Chevrolet is proud to bring the Camaro to the NASCAR Nationwide Series in 2013,” “The Camaro Nationwide race car incorporates many of the distinctive styling elements of the production Camaro, including the unique power-bulge hood and deep recessed grille. In addition, the design incorporates the distinctive halo light rings and dual-port grille appearances, and the gold bowtie.”
 
 

Camaro, which led its segment in sales in 2010 and 2011 and currently leads in 2012, will continue the proud heritage of Chevrolet performance vehicles in one of America’s most prestigious racing series. Chevrolet has more wins, more manufacturers’ championships and more driver’s championships than any other manufacturer competing in the Nationwide Series.

“Our team of Chevrolet designers and aerodynamic engineers did a fantastic job capturing the great looks and styling cues of the production Camaro, while providing our NASCAR Nationwide teams with a highly competitive aero platform,” said Pat Suhy, manager, Chevrolet Racing Oval Track Group. “For the remainder of 2012, our engineers will be busy working with our Chevy teams on wind tunnel and on-track testing to fine-tune the car in preparation for next year. It will be great to see Camaro compete on the track against its showroom competition starting with the 2013 season opener at Daytona.”

Buying Guide | Pre-Owned Vehicles


Today's cars are of higher quality, they last longer and are more reliable.  Leasing continues to increase in the popularity, resulting in a huge inventory of two- or four-year-old cars, trucks, and SUVs.  Many of these cares are in excellent condition with low mileage and some portion of the factory warranty remaining!  

Audia Chevrolet
 The automotive industry as a whole is changing for the better, not surprisingly so are the ways consumers shop for and purchase vehicles.  
  • One emerging method is the manufacturer-certified used-car program at new-car dealers. 
  • Another is used-car superstores. Rental-car companies sell much of their inventory directly to consumers for attractive prices.
Certified Pre-Owned programs provide customers with an extended warranty on the engine and drivetrain that is actually continued protection by the factory and is honored at any of that manufacturer's dealers. 

While surfing the Net, shoppers might paddle over to the eBay wave. Buying a car sight-unseen is counter to everything we've all been taught, but as online shoppers have gained confidence in eBay's process and business practices, they've bought more cars, and more mainstream cars, via the online auction: Last year, eBay moved nearly one million vehicles, most offered for sale by dealers.
eBay puts a one-year limited warranty on cars sold on its site and will buy back any car that's misrepresented. Extended warranties are also available for a fee, and professional inspectors can examine potential purchases for buyers before they commit.

Is a Certified Car Right for Me?
It’s always a good idea to research a brand’s CPO program to make an informed judgment. Most companies make an inventory search available on their website that will allow for quick comparison shopping. The warranty that comes with a CPO car can help allay the fear of purchasing a used / pre-owned vehicle.

The used-car marketplace will continue to evolve toward emulating the experience of buying new.

Car Buying Guide for the Hudson Valley


Audia Motors is committed to delivering the best vehicles today and down the road.  This marks the first of our ongoing series of buying tips and care care advise to ensure your family makes the best decisions when assessing your automotive needs.
This edition is devoted to helping you select, price, locate and test-drive the vehicle that is best for you. Fist examine your needs rather than wants, you will quickly discover what the car is right for you. 
  1. Think about what you use your car for. 
  2. How many people do you need to transport? 
  3. What type of driving do you do most often? 
  4. How long is your commute? Is it important that your next vehicle get good gas mileage?  
All too often people choose a car for its styling or because it is trendy.  Let your needs, not your wants, drive your decision. 

Here are a few other questions to keep in mind when you begin your car-buying process:
  • Manual or automatic transmission?
  • Four-wheel drive? Or all-wheel drive?
  • What safety features are important to you?
  • Is cargo capacity needed?
  • Will you be doing any towing?
  • Do you have a bad back and need special seating?
  • Will the car fit in your garage or parking space?
Regardless of whether you decide to buy or lease your next car, establishing a realistic monthly payment that fits into your budget is crucial. The rule of thumb is your total monthly car payments shouldn't exceed 20 percent of your monthly take-home pay.

A lease requires little or no money up front and offers lower monthly payments.  Consider that when the lease ends, you will need a car.  Buying a car can be expensive initially and the monthly payments are typically higher.

Advantages of Leasing
  • You can drive a more expensive car for less money.
  • You can drive a new car every few years.
  • There are no trade-in hassles at the end of the lease.
Advantages of Buying
  • When interest rates are low, it makes more financial sense to own a car rather than lease it.
  • There are no unexpected mileage penalties for increased driving.
  • There's more flexibility — you can sell the car whenever you want.
Before you commit to one car, you should estimate the long-term ownership costs of the vehicle you are considering. These include depreciation, insurance, maintenance and fuel costs.  
  • Test-drive before making a commitment.  
  • Drive the car in both stop-and-go traffic and at freeway speeds. 
  • Drive into the mountains, try to find some steep grades to climb. 
  • Drive over bumps, take tight corners and test the brakes in a safe location. 
  • Get in and out of the car several times and be sure to sit in the backseat, especially if you plan on carrying passengers. 
It's always a good idea to do all of the test-driving in one morning or afternoon. Driving the cars back-to-back will help you uncover differences.  

Now it's time to decide.  Next week we'll cover the basics to leasing a car and then the steps to buying a new car.  Week after that you guessed it, How to buy a used vehicle.

Tips to help save money at the pump.

Fuel Conservation for Sizable Savings

No matter where gas prices go, everyone is interested in saving money at the pump.  Here are some simple steps that will improve your mpg.  Save your hard-earned money for something nice at the mall and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time!
 
 
Fuel Saving Tips 
  • Maintain a steady speed at the designated speed limit (driving 55 instead of 60mph can reduce fuel consumption by nearly 10%).
  • Accelerate slowly on gravel or slippery roads to prevent wasted gas from wheel slippage as well as extra-wear on your tire tread.
  • Drive nice and steady (unnecessary steering waste fuel-burning tire drag).
  • Refrain whenever possible from using the air conditioning at lower speeds.
  • Avoid unnecessary braking (use rolling resistance to lessen brake-wear and gas consumption).
  • Turn the vehicle off at red lights, idling quite simply wastes gas.
  • Avoid "jack rabbit" starts which, not only increase fuel usage, they are hard on tires.
  • A poorly tuned engine can increase fuel consumption by up to 50%.  
 
Proper vehicle maintenance today will extend the life of your vehicle and puts more money in your pocket. And please remember  .  .  .
  • Under-inflated tires can increase gas usage by 10%.
  • Changing spark plugs regularly lead to substantial fuel savings.
  • Balanced, aligned and properly inflated tires make for a smoother ride, and saves gas.

Don't be penny wise and pound foolish, you'll save on gas and extend the life of your vehicle in the long run. 

 

Schedule your next appointment today.

 
Visit the service pros at Audia Chevrolet to ensure your auto running in prime, gas-conserving condition.  Thank you to all our loyal customers who keep coming back year after year.

Introducing the latest concept car, Chevrolet Camaro Dusk.

Freedom is at the core of every successful nation.

Let us never forget the true meaning of the Fourth of July and what it means for our amazing country and the freedom we are afforded here in America, even if it is through Fourth of July quotes. 
So many take the freedom and liberty they are granted in the United States for granted and forget the true meaning of the day. We may dress up in our nation's colors of red, white and blue, but do we know what the true meaning behind our flag is? 

“The greatest lesson we can learn from the past is that freedom is at the core of every successful nation” – Anonymous

The Fourth of July is a time to commemorate America's declaration of separation from Great Britain that was made on July 4, 1776. Our freedom and our democracy that we have been blessed with is a direct product of the sheer determination from our forefathers who worked to establish the United States of America as a free country.

When your air conditioner breaks down, repairs can be expensive.

During the dog days of summer, chances are you run your air conditioning constantly.  
 
FOLLOW THESE TIPS TO KEEP YOUR SYSTEM RUNNING SMOOTHLY: 
 
No matter what the weather is like out there, always run your air conditioner for at least a few minutes each month. Running the air conditioner on a regular basis helps keep the system lubricated and all the parts working properly.  Run the air conditioner to clear fog off the windows, you will be ensuring that your system runs right when you need it the most.
 
The most common cause of system failure is a lack of refrigerant.  A proactive approach saves you time and money in the long run.  Every time you have your oil changed or any other scheduled maintenance, check all fluid levels, including your air conditioning refrigerant.  
 
 
 TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS
  • When the systems begins blowing just air, there is a good chance your refrigerant level is low.  A simple recharge of the air conditioning system will chill the car right quick.
  • A lack of air flow indicates that one or more cooling fans may have failed.  Replacing a defective fan in most cases should restore your cooling system.

Schedule a complete air system checkup.
Audia Chevrolet will check and adjust your entire system's operation, including belts, lines, compressor, condenser, temperature gauge, pressure and perform a leak test to keep you cool all summer.

  • Maintain a steady speed at the designated limit-driving 55 instead of 60mph can reduce fuel consumption by nearly 10%.
  • Accelerate slowly on gravel or slippery roads to prevent wasted gas from slippage as well as extra-wear on your tires.
  • Drive steadily-unnecessary steering wheel movements cause fuel-burning tire drag.
  • Refrain from using the air conditioning at lower speeds.
  • Avoid unnecessary braking-use rolling resistance to lessen brake-wear and gas consumption.
  • Turn the vehicle off at red lights, idling quite simply wastes gas.
  • Avoid "jack rabbit" starts which, not only increase fuel usage, they are hard on tires.
Service your vehicle regularly! It may cost a little extra in the short-term, but you'll save on gas and extend the life of your vehicle in the long-run. 
 
Keep in mind that: 
 
A poorly tuned engine can increase fuel consumption by up to 50%. 
Under-inflated tires can increase gas usage by 10% . 
Changing spark plugs regularly can substantially save on fuel . 
Balanced, aligned and
properly inflated tires make for a smoother ride, thereby enhancing gas preservation.
