When you’re looking for a car, truck or SUV, what are your highest priorities? Perhaps you are most concerned about getting a car with the latest safety features, or maybe, if you have a long daily commute, all you care about is getting the most out of your gas money. And of course, those are very important things to consider when car shopping. But we’ve realized over the years that there is one thing that can immediately add or remove a car, truck or SUV from anyone’s wish list – and that’s where the car was made.
See, some car brands might be American, but their cars are manufactured overseas so they can save a few bucks.
But that’s just not how Buick rolls. Buick has red, white and blue running through its veins, and when Buick announced the other day that the 2016 Buick LaCrosse would be built in Detroit, we believe Uncle Sam nodded in approval.
Tell us what you’re top priorities are when you;re shopping for a car in the comment section below! And remember, if you have any questions about this or any other Buick car or SUV, don’t hesitate to stop by DeVoe Buick GMC in Naples, Florida. Any one of our sales team members would love to help you find the right car for you!
According to a recent J.D. Power study, Buick is the highest ranked mass-market brand when it comes to dealer service satisfaction! All of us at DeVoe Buick GMC are absolutely thrilled about this recognition and are glad to see people are noticing that Buick has, and always will, put customers first.
Now we understand that that study may be a little confusing, so let us do our best at explaining it to you. According to a Buick press release, “Surveying service satisfaction among owners and lessees of one- to five-year-old vehicles in the United States, the CSI focuses on five service areas. Weighted the most is service quality, followed by service initiation, service advisor, service facility and vehicle pick-up. Buick ranked highest among 19 mass-market brands.”
In other words, Buick is the best at keeping service customers happy, from the moment they walk into the dealership, to the moment they drive away in their recently serviced car.
It doesn’t matter if you own a Buick or not, our service center here at DeVoe Buick GMC is always here for all your auto needs, Whether you need a simple oil change, or something a little more major, we can help! Visit our website to learn more about the services we offer.
Isn’t it just so nice to live in Florida? Car maintenance is a lot easier in many ways down here in comparison to other parts of the country. Perhaps the most obvious benefit is the lack of salt on the roads, We don’t need to worry about constantly washing salt off our cars in an effort to avoid rust. However, there are some auto maintenance practices that everyone should do when winter is over no matter what part of the country you live in:
Empty your car of any unnecessary weight. Things tend to pile up cars over the winter and this can negatively affect your MPG. In short, get all the junk out of your trunk and get more out of your gas tank.
Spring is typically the rainiest season. Make sure your windshield wipers, both in the front and back, are up to snuff.
Check your fluids. This is a good tip to remember just in general. If you can remember to check your fluids at the changing of the seasons and top them off whenever necessary, your car will thank you.
That’s all we have for now!
And remember, if there’s any car maintenance you need help with, our service department would be more than happy to help you out. Stop by DeVoe Auto for a tune up today!
Our friendly service technicians would love to help you get your car running like new!
What do you think of when you hear the word “Buick”?
Be honest! We really want to know.
Perhaps you had a grandpa who owned a Buick and you think back to the days of cruising around town with him? Or maybe you are a grandpa and you currently love your Buick? Maybe you think of words like “luxury” and “class.”
Whatever you think of when you hear the word “Buick”, we want you to check out the current Buick lineup and then answer the question again. Why? Because, if you didn’t already know, Buick has been undergoing some pretty serious changes lately.
You wouldn’t believe how many people come to DeVoe Buick and are completely floored when they get behind the wheel of a Buick!
Now, we’re not trying to say that Buick’s are no longer suitable for any older folks out there. We’re just saying that Buick has stepped its game up in pretty much every way and lots of people, no matter what the age, are noticing.

Buick took home three Kelley Blue Book 2014 5-Year Cost to Own awards last week, demonstration lower-than-average ownership cost than similar vehicles on the market.
The list was compiled using Kelley Blue Book® Residual Values, a sophisticated valuation methodology that draws from critical financial data from third-party providers. The goal is to calculate depreciation costs, expected fuel costs, finance and insurance fees, maintenance and repair costs, and state registration fees—helping KBB’s readers to garner a good understanding of which cars are most likely to give them the most bang for their buck.
This year, the Buick Verano, Encore, and Enclave were undoubtedly those that delivered the biggest bang for their customers’ buck, coming out ahead in the entry-level luxury, luxury compact SUV/crossover, and luxury full-size SUV/crossover categories, respectively.
“Buick puts the customer first, not only offering a great portfolio of vehicles, but maintaining quality and dependability long after the vehicle is purchased,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick marketing.
What would you do with a 2014 GMC Acadia? Would it change your life? GMC had the opportunity to gift one boy’s mom with the crossover in hopes that it would do just that.
Tyson Wheelock, a 13-year-old boy who has already been faced with tough decisions at his young age, is one of seven stories featured in USA Network’s “NFL Characters Unite” documentary presented by GMC.
Green Bay Packers running back Randall Cobb spent a day with the teen, mentoring and encouraging him to make wise decisions and to be a leader rather than giving in to peer pressure. For Wheelock, we at DeVoe Buick GMC are sure the day was life-changing and one he won’t soon forget.
Wheelock’s mom also experienced a life-changing moment as she accepted the keys to the 2014 GMC Acadia.
“On behalf of GMC partnership with USA Network and Characters Unite, we’d like to provide Nicole with her own Never Say Never moment,” said Sandra Moore, GMC’s director of Advertising and Sales Promotion. “I’m thrilled to hand off these keys to a 2014 GMC Acadia that is now yours. We hope this will help you continue to persevere and strive to achieve the best for your family.”
Now that’s what we call a gift worth giving.
What would you do if someone handed you the keys to a brand new 2014 GMC Acadia free of charge?
