The Next Big Thing in Luxury… Is Small

Throughout the years, it seems things have just kept getting bigger. Average home sizes are increasing, enormous burgers are now readily available, and cars, especially SUV’s have only gotten bigger and bigger. But is bigger really better?

Not always. Introducing the 2013 Buick Encore. Buick has proved that great things can come in small packages. Check out the video below to see for yourself:

See? Even though the Encore is small in comparison to the tanks owning the roads these days, there’s still plenty of space for all the bells and whistles. Oh – and did we mention it gets a combined EPA-estimated fuel economy of 28 mpg? Come take one for a test drive at DeVoe Buick in Naples today!

Prepare your Vehicle for Springs Smoldering Heat

Goodbye breezy, cool winter weather and hello 80 degree days!  Yes, it’s that time of year again, and right now is the best time to get your car prepared for the upcoming spring and summer months of smoldering heat.  We did some research and came up with several important parts that you should check for the hot weather ahead.

Of course, you probably think the most important part to get checked is the air conditioning.  Which is true, you don’t want to get caught with it broken, but you should also check the radiator and cooling system in conjunction with the air.  If you have dirty coolant filled with sediments, it won’t allow air flow to the engine and you could end up with major problems.

In addition to those major inspections, you should also have the belts and hoses inspected for cracks, breakage and wear.  Now would also be the best time to change out your windshield wiper blades so that you are ready for the heavy spring thunderstorms.  Another item that you can check on your own is the tires; make sure they are properly inflated and get them rotated or replaced if necessary.

You can bring your vehicle to our certified service center here at Devoe Buick GMC and we will be happy to look it over for you.  Be sure to ask about our service specials and see what kind of a deal you can get on summer maintenance!

LaCrosse and Verano: Best Cars for Families

The results are in, and Buick has once again earned the recognition of highly regarded critics. This time, it’s the U.S. News & World Report, which has just published the 2013 Best Cars for Families awards. These awards signify everything a family could need in a new car: quality, space, and family-friendly features. That’s why all of us at Devoe Buick GMC aren’t surprised to find not just one, but two of our favorite Buick models at the top of the list.
