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!
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!
Just when you thought Monday Night Football couldn’t get any better, GMC comes out of nowhere and announces that the new 2014 Sierra will have a starring role during ESPN’s new “Monday Night Football” launch next month. We don’t know about you, but all of us here at DeVoe are so excited about this!
In a recent press release by GMC, Tony DiSalle, vice president of GMC marketing, said, “The all-new Sierra Denali is a natural star for the new Monday Night Football launch open. Just as NFL players give their all on the field, GMC engineers and designers left nothing on the table when developing the Sierra.”
We couldn’t agree more with you, Tony!
Keep an eye out for the new 2014 Sierra during this year’s “Monday Night Football” debut on September 9th when the Eagles take on the Redskins. And remember, if you want to see the new Sierra Denali and take it for a test drive, you need to stop by DeVoe Buick GMC in Naples, Florida.
In our last blog we showed you a few pictures of the new 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup truck. We showed the remodeled exterior, spacious interior, and the redesigned information center. Well this week we wanted to take it a step further and introduce you to the 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali – the more refined version of the 2014 Sierra.
Featuring the signature grille, chrome accents, and unique wheels, the exterior of the Sierra 1500 Denali is striking. However, it’s not until you get inside the truck that you realize work trucks can be nice and luxurious too. With heated and cooled front seats, heated steering wheel, and premium Bose speakers, the GMC Sierra 1500 Denali is the ultimate in professional grade.
Check out the video below for a better look at this incredible truck:
That’s right, everyone. The 2014 GMC Sierra has been delivered to DeVoe Buick GMC and we could not be more excited to finally see this beast of a truck in real life! Upon first glance, it’s clear that the Sierra has undergone a major makeover. Somehow the truck just looks stronger and more capable. But it’s not until you get behind the wheel that you realize the new Sierra actually is much stronger and more capable. Rated at 355 HP and 383 lb-ft of torque, the available EcoTec 5.3L V8 in the new Sierra offers class-leading max trailering of 11,500 lbs when ordered with the available Max Trailering Package (Double cab, 4×2). Oh, and did we mention this same engine gets 16 MPG in the city, and 23 MPG on the highway? No longer do you need to sacrifice power for fuel efficiency.
Stop by DeVoe Buick GMC in Naples, Florida to see the 2014 Sierra for yourself. There are so many more features in this truck that you just need to experience for yourself. Stop by DeVoe today to set up your test drive!
Normally when people buy trucks, they do so with the understanding that they will be getting a lot of power and durability to get jobs done, but terrible gas mileage. However, the new 2014 is changing the game when it comes to trucks and fuel efficiency. No longer do you need to sacrifice fuel efficiency for power.
According to a press release by GMC early last month, the 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 full size pickup truck has the best V8 pickup fuel economy in the industry. The press release goes on to say, “In addition to highway estimates that are 2 mpg higher than a comparative 2013 Ford and 3 mpg higher than Ram, Sierra’s new V8 fuel economy estimates also measure higher than those of the 2013 Ford F-150 Eco Boost V6.”
So there you have it. If you want a truck that will get the job done, and not break the bank at the gas pump, the new 2014 GMC Sierra is the truck for you. Stop by DeVoe Buick GMC later this spring and take one for a test drive.
There are so many trucks out there these days, how are you supposed to know which one is best? Which one will get the job done time and time again, and run strong for years down the road? Let us tell you. The best truck is the one that has been designed perfectly, been tested, tried, and proved, and won’t break even under the most rigorous examinations. That truck, my friends, is the 2014 GMC Sierra pickup truck.
Trust us. The engineers over at GMC have done their homework on this truck, and as a result, we’re positive the new Sierra will pass any test you put in its way. Need some proof? Check out the video below. We think you’ll agree.
The 2014 GMC Sierra is not available at DeVoe Buick GMC quite yet, but keep checking our blog, website, and Facebook page to see when it shows up.
You may not have realized it, but President’s day is right around the corner! That’s right – President’s Day is in just a few days, February 18th, and we thought, what better way to celebrate President’s Day than to offer big savings on new Buick vehicles? But then we thought, how awesome would that be if we offered $0 first month’s payment, $0 Security Deposit, and $0 due at signing too?
Does that sound like something you would be interested in?
Well that’s exactly what you’ll get if you take advantage of the President’s Day sale this year at DeVoe Buick GMC. If you’re interested in learning more about this current offer, or if you have any questions whatsoever about a Buick vehicle, please feel free to stop by DeVoe Buick GMC!

GMC works hard to give drivers a hassle free cabin ride by providing as many hands free technologies as possible. Today, we here at DeVoe Buick GMC are going to look into the IntelliLink system available with all new 2013 Buick GMC models. With the IntelliLink system, drivers can integrate their smart phones into the color touch radio allowing you to keep your hands at ten and two as much as possible.

The screen is fully configurable with a wide array of icons for each device. Below we’ll hit some of the key features of the system:
Music can be played through mp3 player, smart phone, iPod, flash drive, or streamed from popular sites such as Pandora (through smart phone)
Majority of features can be controlled via hands-free voice controls
Song information (i.e. album cover, artist and song name) are visible on the full color touch screen
Icons allow to make phone calls and many other functions directly from the primary interface
What to know more or see it in action? Here’s a short video feature the 2013 Crossover Acadia which comes standard with the IntelliLink system! Check it out!
The GMC Sierra has a longstanding reputation as being one of the toughest work trucks on the road today. And after the reveal of the all new 2014 GMC Sierra last week, we think it’s safe to say that the Sierra will be keeping its sterling reputation as we head into the coming years.
According to the GMC website, “Take one look inside the all-new 2013 GMC Sierra and you’ll see clearly why this is the new standard in truck interiors. Designed to deliver style and substance, the Sierra’s interior brings comfort, refinement and convenience to a whole new level.”
But this truck is so much more than a comfortable and convenient interior. It’s a rugged piece of American machinery that is capable of handling just about anything you can throw at it. All of us here at DeVoe Buick GMC can’t wait for this truck to be delivered next summer! Keep checking our Facebook, this blog, and our website for more information.
