DeVoe Automotive loves helping the local community. And one of the ways we get to do that every year is through the DeVoe Scholarship Trust! See, college is very expensive these days and not everyone can afford to continue their education after high school to pursue the career they’ve always wanted.
That’s why we’ve Richard DeVoe started the DeVoe Scholarship Trust – to help local kids get through college.
So this year we have ten scholarship recipients that will each receive $12,000 to financially assist with their college education! See below for the list of recipients:
Alexa Boyd – Barron Collier
Elizabeth Hernandez – Lorenzo Walker
Anita Munoz Trejo – Immokalee
Chandler Whitehead – Gulf Coast
Kaitlyn Huaroto – Gulf Coast
Jeffrey Flores – Immokalee
Caitlin Early – Golden Gate
Kara Dudley – Naples
Santiago Ospina – Lely
Shelby Sorrell – Palmetto Ridge
Congratulations, all of you! We wish you nothing but the best as you head off to school. Study hard an remember that hard work pays off.
You’re driving down the road minding your own business when all of a sudden – WHAM! Traffic jam. Someone must have crashed about a half mile down the road and you, thinking traffic would be smooth as usual, weren’t ready to slam on your brakes. Next thing you know, yet another car accident has occured, and this time, it’s your fault.
But this little story could easily end a different way! So you’re cruising down the road and didn’t realize a traffic jam is only a short distance ahead of you. Suddenly an audible alarm rings alarming you of the oncoming traffic, giving you enough time to brake and safely come to a stop. See, we’re human, and humans make mistakes. But that’s one of the reason’s we love the new 2014 Buick LaCrosse so much! It constantly monitors the area surrounding the car making sure that you, and everyone on board, stays safe.
Check out the video below to learn more about the new LaCrosse!
Despite rising gas prices, Americans can never seem to resist their desire to get out on the open road in the summer. I know I personally have always loved going on summer road trips. However, as fun as summer road trips may be, long trips on hot summer days can be extremely hard on your car. But wait! Don’t cancel your road trip yet! There are a few simple precautions you can take to make sure your car is ready for a summer trip.
Make sure your tires are up to snuff. This doesn’t only mean you should make sure there is enough air in your tires; it also means you should check your tires tread to make sure there’s not too much wear and tear. Tires without enough tread can cause you to hydroplane, which is never a good thing.
Change the oil and oil filter. Oil keeps the many moving parts of your car working the way they should, so make sure you check your owner’s manual and get your oil changed after the recommended amount of miles.
Change your air filter. Your cars air filter will get clogged with various things over the winter months, so make sure everything is clear. This will allow your engine to breathe better, and thus get better gas mileage.
We hope these few tips help! Keep an eye out for the second and third installments of “Summer Car Maintenance Tips”. And always remember, you can count on the DeVoe Automotive service center for any of you car maintenance needs.
As most of you know, we have been undergoing a facelift of sorts here at Devoe Automotive and we just wanted to give a quick update on the construction and let you know when things will be back to normal.
The Subaru dealership is still under construction and will be for the next couple weeks, and the same goes for the service department. However – we are happy to announce that the Buick GMC showroom is complete and looking better than ever!
We would love to invite you to our dealership to see how much progress has been made in the last few weeks, and while you’re here, you can check out the brand new Buick Encore! Even if you’re not looking for a new car, stop in to say “hello”, grab a cookie, and check out the new showroom. We love getting to know our neighbors!
This week we would like to put the spotlight on one of our most advanced and luxurious vehicles – the Buick Regal Turbo. You may hear the word “turbo” and think this car is all about performance, but let us assure you that the Regal Turbo has a lot more than just a fast engine. Buick Intellilink, Onstar turn-by-turn navigation, and Bluetooth Connectivity are just a few of the features you can look forward to using in the new Buick Regal. Check out the video below for more information on the Regal’s technology features:
We currently have three Buick Regal Turbo’s on our lot here at DeVoe Buick GMC and would love to accompany you on a test drive. Interested? Stop by DeVoe Buick GMC or give us a call at 877-208-2963.
The 2013 GMC Acadia’s standard rear vision camera system uses a camera in the liftgate to give the driver the ability to see exactly what’s going on behind the car.

With Breast Cancer Awareness Month now over, our “Pink Saturdays” promotion has also come to a close. If you did not hear, for any customer who came into the DeVoe service center on a Saturday in October for car maintenance, we would donate $10 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. It was a very easy way for people to come in, get great service, and donate money to a very deserving cause at the same time. And now that October is over, we just wanted to give a big “Thank you” to everyone who came in on a “Pink Saturday” last month to help raise money!
If you didn’t make it in to our service center in Naples, Florida last month, no worries! We’re still here and our certified technicians are ready to get your car back in shape. See you at DeVoe Buick GMC soon!
