Want To Add A Race Car To Your Collection?

Feel the need for speed but want something more hard-core than the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE? Well, Pine Belt Chevrolet just might have what you’re looking for. But it’ll cost ya. Chevy and their road racing partners, Pratt & Miller, have recently begun selling the GT4.R Camaro race car to the public and boy is she a beauty.

 

How Hard-Core Are We Talking?

Our car dealerships in NJ is talking about a vehicle so fast it has up to 480 horsepower. Chevrolet Racing developed a dry-sump lubricated 6.2-liter V8 engine under the hood. The engine is bolted to a 6-speed Xtrac sequential gearbox with Magaline pneumatic paddle shifters that really blows Pine Belt Chevrolet’s socks off.

That’s not all Pine Belt Chevrolet has to report about this beast. It also comes with two-way adjustable Ohlin dampers, Brembo Motorsport six-piston front calipers and adjustable antiroll bars. It borrowed the Camaro ZL1 street cars Brembo four-piston calipers in the back, too. The 3,131 pound racer rides on 18” Forgeline wheels.

That’s not all folks. There’s a 21-way adjustable carbon fiber wing on the back, a front splitter and dive planes. The front fascia and doors are constructed with carbon fiber to help shave weight. Inside, you won’t find a fancy infotainment or Apple CarPlay capability. But there is a motorsports steering wheel with adjustment controls for the Bosch Motorsports ECU. It will alter the vehicle’s antilock brake and traction control behavior.

 

How Much Are You Willing To Fork Over To Pine Belt Chevrolet?

Would you give $250,000+ to our Lakewood car dealers for one of these hot rods? It might sounds crazy but it’s actually not too shabby for the ultimate track-going Camaro GT4.R, especially when you can strut your stuff confidently next to a race-prepared Porsche Cayman, Ford Mustang, McLaren 570, Aston Martin Vantage or BMW M3. Schedule an appointment with Pine Belt Chevrolet if you’re looking to up your race car game.

Storing Your Vehicle The Smart Way

If you’re going on a long trip or have a summer Subaru that won’t be used over the winter months, Pine Belt Subaru has a few things to keep in mind. Short-term storage would typically be between 3 and 6 months and long-term would be anything longer than that. If your vehicle isn’t stored properly during long-term storage, your engine and cylinder surface can rust and you’ll also risk fuel and carburetor issues. Before you just park and forget it, try these ideas from our Subaru dealer NJ.

 

Education About Storage

  • Batteries – get a charger or maintainer that you can plug into the wall. They will keep the battery charged long-term and are typically not too expensive. Pine Belt Subaru also suggests disconnecting the battery.
  • Fuel Additives – Adding this will prevent octane loss. Empty the tank as much as you can, add the additive then fill the tank back up. This will maintain octane levels and prevent any rusting from forming inside.
  • Spark Plugs – Have Pine Belt Subaru install better plugs to OE or OE equivalent is the best option before storing your ride.
  • Fogging Oil – Using this oil protects everything from rusting in intake and exhaust inside the cylinder head. It’s very important if you’ll be storing your vehicle long-term.

 

Use The Professionals At Pine Belt Subaru

If you’re not confident to check the above safely, come in to see us at Pine Belt Subaru. The Service Department technicians will prep your vehicle for storage so you can rest assured there will be no damage when you are ready to drive it again.

Chevy’s Goldilocks Special of Corvette’s

If you’re in the market for one of Pine Belt Chevrolet’s super cars you have two options: the Corvette and the Camaro. The Corvette comes in a few different models but the midrange is the “Goldilocks Special”. Okay, so maybe this isn’t the coolest name and that’s why it’s officially called the Grand Sport. It’s a mix between the Stingray Z51 and the Z06, and it’s a beauty.

 

Her Stats

 

She boasts an impressive 460 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque with her 6.2-liter V8 engine and dry-sump oiling system. The electronically controlled limited-slip differential with cooler comes standard, along with performance exhaust, but our car dealerships in NJ love the seven-speed manual transmission with the Z07 package. Cup tires, magnetic shocks, carbon-ceramic brakes and the highest-performance suspension are added with the Z07 package. Pine Belt Chevrolet is impressed.

 

What Can She Do

 

Imagine 60 mph in only 3.9 seconds. A standing quarter mile in a mere 12.2 seconds at 116.1 mph. Holy guacamole Batman! Pine Belt Chevrolet’s Grand Sport can move, even at 3,464 pounds. Wonder how it stops with that much power? The massive brakes take 90 feet and the sticky tires pull 1.18 average g on the skidpad. If you’ve ever wanted to attempt a figure-eight lap, you can do it at 0.96 g in only 22.3 seconds.

 

Get Her At Pine Belt Chevrolet

 

It’s hard to resist when you hear what the Goldilocks Special can do. She’s powerful, she’s sporty and she’s fun to drive. Head on over to Pine Belt Chevrolet to see what Corvette Grand Sport options we have at our Lakewood car dealers. You won’t want to leave her once you get behind the wheel.

A Lot To Love About Our 2017 Subaru Crosstrek

The new year brought Pine Belt Subaru an updated Crosstrek. Our Subaru dealer NJ says goodbye to the Hybrid and hello to the 2.0i Premium Special Edition. Some things to highlight in the new trim level include rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, and ambient cabin lighting. Let’s take a closer look into the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek.

The Good Stuff

Our Crosstrek is great for the outdoorsy type who isn’t interested in a truck or bigger SUV. It’s also a great choice living in Lakewood come the snowy, slippery, winter months. Pine Belt Subaru calls it the more rugged version of our Impreza but it has a higher ground clearance, trail-ready styling, and beefed-up suspension. A manual transmission choice lets you command your own gear changes, which is super fun. The 2017 offers a lot of great standard features including a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine, roomy cargo and interior areas and all-wheel drive.

The Model We Recommend

You can probably guess which one Pine Belt Subaru suggests. It’s the new 2.0i Premium. But we’re going to recommend upgrading the touchscreen for the infotainment package and adding the EyeSight safety system. It’s definitely a lot to handle so make sure you’re ready for a manual transmission. This model gives you the most flexibility when it comes to features. The infotainment systems offer voice controls, you get heated front seats and we love the upgraded speakers to kick up the base.   

Trek Into Pine Belt Subaru

We know, this sounds tempting. That’s why you should trek on into our Lakewood car dealers to test drive the 2017 Crosstrek. While you’re here at Pine Belt Subaru, we suggest browsing our other new and preowned Subaru vehicles. If the Crosstrek doesn’t tickle your fancy, we’re confident there’s something else here that will make your eyes sparkle.

Fluid Tips From Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep

It may seem strange but Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep compares vehicles to the human body. Think about the summer months when you fuel your body with water to stay cool and hydrated. Well, your set of wheels relies on liquids like transmission fluid and coolant to run smoothly, too. Our car dealerships in NJ has a few tips for you to quickly examine each fluid level. It’s very important to monitor them regularly to keep the levels from dropping too low.

Motor Oil

Your engine works best when it’s lubricated. Insert motor oil! All oil gets dirty with regular use and clean oil allows the engine to run at maximum efficiency. Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep recommends changing the oil every 3,000 miles or so. You can check the oil at home. Turn off the engine and make sure it’s cool then find the oil dipstick. Wipe it clean, re-insert then remove the stick again. If it is on the clear side, it’s clean. If it’s brown, it’s dirty and you might need to bring it into our Lakewood car dealers for an oil change.

Coolant Fluid

This fluid keeps your engine cool, as you’d expect from the name. Of course it’s most important to keep an eye during the summer months so it doesn’t overheat, but it’s damaging if it runs out, no matter what time of year. You can find the coolant tank by the radiator. It’s typically in a clear plastic container and will have markings to indicate proper levels.

Brake Fluid

Notice your brakes being less responsive or effective? Your brake fluid could be low or signify a leak or the need for new brake pads. But, you can check the level by opening your hood and looking for a clear container, like the coolant. Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep recommends bringing your vehicle in if you can’t find where it’s located or think it’s something more serious.

Beware If You’re Looking To Buy Used

At Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep you can be confident that we have one of the finest fleets of preowned vehicles for sale in New Jersey. But sadly, that’s not always the case. Buyer beware, in the next few months the used market will be flooded with flood-damaged vehicles that might be as frightening as the waters from which they came from.

Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep expects that hundreds of thousands of storm-ravaged vehicles will be hitting the market following Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. There are an estimated one million vehicles in Texas alone that fell victim to the waters.

Things To Look Out For

Interior clues – Make sure to take note of any musty or foul smells inside the vehicle. Check for signs of water or mud by pulling back carpeting. If there are power locks and windows, Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep suggests you make sure they work. If a vehicle was submerged there will most likely be water in the head- and taillights so check those as well.

FSBO – Owners might try to sell on their own after detailing the vehicle to try and reel in an unsuspecting buyer. Our car dealerships in NJ has even seen people move the vehicle to another state to escape suspicion so when in doubt, have a mechanic do a pre-purchase inspection.

Bogus or forged documentation – Tampering with title records is a way sellers try to trick buyers into thinking the vehicle is in better condition than it is. Definitely compare what they show you to the Carfax records to ensure you’re not getting scammed.
