Get Your Vehicle Road Trip Ready – #FindNewRoads

At Bob Bell we want you to get the most out of your vehicle, it is after all in the Chevrolet motto to Find New Roads! But, with each road travelled and discovered you’ll want to ensure your vehicle is performing at its optimal level.  That’s where we come in, and why our factory trained technicians are here to help during your regular scheduled maintenance. However, when it comes to preparing for a road trip, here are some things that you can do at home to double check that your vehicle is ready to make the drive!

winding-road-1556177_1920

1. Oil Check

You’ll want to consult your vehicle records and determine when the last time you had an oil change was? If it was recently, move on to point #2. If it’s been a while, we encourage you to either book in for an oil change or facilitate one yourself (if you’re equipped to do so) as road trips put additional stress on your engine, therefore you’ll want to make sure your oil is topped up (and new).

60021560_2608538049191037_996360252926459904_o

2. Fluid Check

As there are multiple areas in your engine that require fluids, we would encourage you to check all of the following:

  • Windshield Wiper Fluid
  • Engine Coolant
  • Brake Fluid

Keeping these fluids in check is a preventative measure and should be a part of your regular maintenance routine.

3. Air Pressure (Tires) + Tire Tread

Checking your vehicle’s tires before a long road trip is one of utmost importance, as your tires are in physical contact with the road. We would ask that you start by checking each tires air pressure individually as they may be at different levels. Please note that each vehicle is different when it comes to where you tire pressure should be marked at. We recommend consulting your owners manual or consulting the tires on the vehicle as they should be marked for your reference.

It’s important to note that it is possible to overfill your tires, which may lead to accidents on the road. On the other hand, it is also possible to underfill your tires. In order to avoid both potential outcomes, we recommend that you utilize an air pressure gauge when filling your tires, in order to ensure enough air has been consumed to meet the desired rating.

6781f585b772436ab21bc703951de5d5_c36x0-568x427

Now, let’s check that tire tread! There are a few ways to consult your tires and assess that they have enough tread to make the journey. You can employ the good old fashioned Penny test, which is as simple as it sounds. Place a penny into the tread, if you can see all of Lincoln’s head then your tires are under 2/32 inch and should be replaced. It’s as simple as that!

If you don’t have any change lying around, there is another method.  You can work with the tread wear indicator on your tires. These indicators should be located in multiple spots and will indicate visibly if you are under 2/32 inch and due for a change.

4. Air Filter Check

An important factor to any good pre-road trip check is assessing your air filter, as it needs to supply clean air to your engine in order for other moving parts to function appropriately. Additionally, this filter is responsible for providing you with clean air in your vehicle as well.

Air filters are found behind the front glove box or within the engine, please consult your vehicle’s manual for exact placement.

5. Car Lights and Signals

It’s important that when you are signalling to go left, your vehicle ensures everyone else on the road knows as well. That’s why before any trip you should check all your headlights, indicators, reverse lights and tail lights. If you are looking to be extra prepared, pack extra lights in case one goes out during your journey.

2018-silverado-1500-gal-ext-04

6.  Battery Life

If you can’t remember the last time you changed your battery it’s likely time for a change, however, we encourage you to consult your vehicle service records or call us to check. An indicator of the battery starting to give out is the responsiveness of your starter. If the vehicle seems slow to catch on, it might be time to switch it out.

There you have it! These are our top recommendations for a pre-road trip check.  A car wash wouldn’t hurt either, but we’ll leave that one up to you to decide!

If you have any further questions about vehicle maintenance of you require assistance checking your vehicle before a road trip, call us in the service centre, we’re always happy to help!

Commanding, Captivating and Cunning, the 2019 Camaro – Are you ready to make your mark?

When it comes to the Drive, we all dream of vast landscapes, longer days and winding roads. We ponder never-ending sunshine, the company of nature and the thrill of the drive. One such vehicle built to fulfil your driving fantasies is the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro.

2019-camaro-design-01

Starting at $25,000* with an available 455 HP and 455 LB. – FT of torque the road less travelled is on your doorstep. Whether you select the LS or track ready ZL1 you’ll be placed in an interior that was built for hot laps. With bold new looks and enhanced technology, there’s no way that the Chevrolet Camaro could disappoint.

Let’s bring you back to reality and bring life to those wild thoughts of yours by introducing the Camaro trims. Scroll down ↓

(LS) The Intro

Think nimble power. The LS, although the base model to the Camaro trims, features 275-HP with a 2.0L engine and a standard 6-speed manual transmission or available 8-speed paddle shift automatic transmission. It begs to be driven as much as any other trim. Will you be the one to take it where it wants to go?


2019-camaro-trims-01

(1LT, 2LT, 3LT) Keep Stepping Up

Building on the LT, the next three available trims for Camaro speak to the luxury components of the vehicle. Camaro really is synonymous with comfort and class, and these three trims provide just that with 6-way power adjustable front seats, 18-inch wheels and SiriusXM® Radio.

2LT will bring you more by adding a standard heated/ventilated leather-appointed front seat with dual-zone automatic climate control. With 3LT, you can expect to receive more power with a standard 3.6L 335-HP V6 engine. Whether you select 1LT, 2LT, 3LT it will be a step up from your previous vehicle, we guarantee it!

2019-camaro-trims-02

Do you love what you’ve read thus far? But have an itch for more power, features or flair? Then SS or ZL1 may be what you’re looking for!

(1SS, 2SS) – Only Performance

It’s all about power on this tier, the 1SS comes with a standard 6.2L 455-hp V8 engine presented on 20-inch aluminium wheels with summer-only performance run-flat tires, Brembo®performance 4-wheel disc brakes and LED projector-style headlamps with LED signature lighting accents. Still not enough? Then the 2SS with built-in premium amenities to complement the athletic power of the engine might be the right selection for you.

2019-camaro-trims-03

We know what you’re thinking. Damn. The 2SS is perfect.

Well, it is. We couldn’t deny that. But, perfection is the enemy of innovation. This statement brings us to the introduction of our final trim, the Camaro ZL1.

ZL1 – Meet Mr Supercharged

The ZL1 was engineered to crown the Camaro legacy with a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine boasting 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque and a 6-speed manual transmission. The ZL1 comes complete with Active Rev Matching or an available paddle-shift 10-speed automatic transmission.

We’ll give you a minute catch your breath before we show you a picture…or maybe this is a good opportunity for you to vaguely stare off into the distance imagining the sound of a revving engine on that picturesque road that we know you’ve had on your mind since the beginning of this post.

Ok, let’s bring it back, we’re almost done.

2019-camaro-trims-04
