A Malibu to Love

The 2017 Chevy Malibu is a highly ranked midsize sedan that features a spacious interior, has high safety scores, is very reliable and is very affordable.

 

Plentiful

The 2017 Chevy Malibu is plenty comfortable and roomy. Legroom and back support are the first thing you notice when you get behind the wheel of a #2017ChevroletMalibu. Five adults will fit comfortably and the rear seat is roomy enough that car seats move easily in and out of the Chevy Malibu.

There is plenty of cargo space in the Malibu, as well. The trunk is almost 16 cubic feet. The trunk opens wide for carrying large objects. Seats in the rear have a 60/40 split and are easy to fold down by releasing a handle in the trunk.

 

Powerful

There are several choices available to move your Malibu. On the base model, a four-cylinder 1.5 liter engine with 160-horsepower and a six-speed automatic transmission is available. The Premier edition sports a nine speed automatic with 250 horsepower. Added power on the Premier only lowers fuel economy nominally. On the base model, you will get 27 mpg in the city and 36 on the highway. City driving in the Premier edition drops to 22 in the city and only three miles per gallon to 33 mpg on the freeway. Fuel efficiency is the best in class with a 2017 Chevy Malibu.

Let the Fun Begin!

New Jersey has so much to offer, including access to over 100 miles of coastline and almost a dozen professional sports teams and venues all just a short drive away. Each year at Pine Belt Chevrolet in Lakewood, NJ, we love to look at the calendar of Festivals in our fair State! May is shaping up to be amazing! And, it’s all just a day trip away.

 

Nowhere But Here

Hopefully, in April you won’t miss out on the Food Truck Fest, Turtle Fest, Geekfest or the Asbury Park Music and Film Fest! Now, start your May out right with the Cinco de Mayo fest at the Bellview Winery in Landsville. Fantastic food, dancing and lots of Sangria paired with delicious Mexican dishes. Viva!

May 5-7 in Piscataway, check out the Steampunk World’s Fair. If you are into this genre of Science Fiction or just need entertaining, you will enjoy this unusual festival.

Go fly a kite on Kite Day May 6 & 7 in Princeton at Terhune Orchards. On Kite Day the sky over the Orchards will be filled with every kind of kite imaginable. Bring your own or purchase one from the wide selection at the store. You can even make your own “guaranteed to fly” kite! Fun for everyone.

Feeling like Fall and football season are too far away and you are jonesing for a bowl of piping hot chili? Make your way to the 28th Annual NJ State Chili & Salsa Cook-off on May 20 in Toms River. Along with tasting chili, you can enjoy live entertainment, a beer and wine garden and the marketplace. Rides and crafts will be available for the kids, too!

After eating all that chili and festival food in the month of May, on May 21 in Pennington is the Watershed Trail Run (10K or 5K). Just sayin…

A New Cruze is in Town

Diesel vehicles often invoke the sensory memory with a bad smell, loud noise or being messy when having to fill the tank with diesel fuel. We drove them, however, because they got better fuel efficiency than gasoline fueled vehicles. That was then. Today, Chevrolet engineering has changed all of that.  Today, there is the Chevy Cruze Diesel Hatchback which has better-than-ever fuel efficiency, produces no fumes, is extremely quiet and has a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

 

Wishing They Had the Chevy Cruze Diesel

Other car dealerships in NJ are wishing they had the new #ChevyCruzeDiesel on their lots. Chevrolet dealers NJ do, however and Pine Belt Chevrolet invites you to check out the new Chevy Cruze Diesel Hatchback at our dealership.

 

How Did Chevrolet Do It

“There were a lot of little things we had to do to make it all add up,” said Craig Weddle, Chief Engineer on the Cruze. A team made up of powertrain engineers and frictions experts made the design, collaborating with specialists on how to make things bigger weigh less.

 

Starting with Chevy’s 1.6 liter, four-cylinder turbodiesel engine with 151 horsepower—it now has a block made of aluminum instead of cast iron. This change shaved off over 30 pounds to improve fuel efficiency. Putting start-stop technology on the Cruze Diesel boosted fuel efficiency by 3%.

 

The drag coefficient of a vehicle is caused by the way it moves through air. Drag slows it down and decreases fuel efficiency. To reduce drag on the Cruze Diesel, Chevy had to find ways to move air around the vehicle instead of the air pushing against the vehicle. A smooth tray covers the underbelly so that air doesn’t create drag from moving against the engine or suspension system. There are new deflectors on both the front and back of the Cruze Diesel so that air moves around the tires smoothly. All of these changes to the Chevy Cruze Diesel increased fuel efficiency to 52 miles per gallon!

Find Your Tires at Pine Belt Chevrolet—They Might Just Smell Good

There are many brands of tires but there are brands that have been with us for so long that their reputation is a deal maker. Such is the case with Continental Tires, changing the industry one innovation at a time.

 

They’re Not Just Rubber Anymore

Technology has improved tires but we all think of rubber when we think tires. Traditionally, tires have been made from rubber, a totally renewable resource. But, it takes seven years to be able to tap the rubber trees to make tires. The trouble is, the number of cars produced that need tires out number the trees that can be tapped to make tires.

 

Continental, thinking outside of the box, discovered that dandelions of all things — yes, the little yellow weeds you brought your mom when you were a child. Well, there is a natural rubber that can be made from creating a polymer out of dandelions. You might want to start planting dandelions as a cash crop soon. Russian dandelions were discovered to be the heartiest.

 

Another polymer was created by Continental using a compound made of black chili, this time for bicycle tires. These tires adjust the tire’s surface grip to push water away from the tire.

 

Take the Worry Out of Tires at

It is interesting to learn how technology is changing the tires on your vehicle. Still, all you really need to do is leave the choosing, care and maintenance of your tires to our experts at your top-tier Chevrolet dealer NJ, #PineBeltChevrolet. Other car dealerships in NJ may be able to spin a tale or two about tires, but our highly trained Service Technicians can give you the straight scoop on which tires are best for your car. Check us out and make an appointment to service your tires on our website, www.pinebeltchevrolet.com.

Breaking Those Bad Habits – Service Tips From Pine Belt Chevrolet

Whether you drive a new car or used car in New Jersey winters, Pine Belt Chevrolet wants you to know how we can help you keep your vehicle running to beat the freezing cold and icy roads. Just a few simple bad habits can cause havoc and wear on your vehicle.

Do’s and Don’ts

It seems so simple, yet so many of us neglect to change the wipers in the winter before a horrid winter storm. To have streaks and ice forming along the path of your wiper blades can be a significant safety hazard. Don’t let that happen to you! Stop by Pine Belt Chevy and let us change them out.

There is a difference between tires that are best for summer and safer for winter. Winter temperatures that hit summer tires can cause the tires to weaken and make for more difficult handling and braking.  And don’t forget to let our skilled Service Technicians monitor the air in your tires over the winter. A 10-degree drop in temp causes the PSI in your tires to drop. Underinflated tires are safety hazards and contribute to lower gas mileage.

 

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

How tempting it is to drive on by that gas station when the temperatures are freezing. But if it is freezing outside and your gas tank has lots of empty space where the fuel should be, moisture inside the tank can lead to ice in the fuel lines. If you thought standing outside pumping gas is cold, wait until you are trying to start your car with a frozen gas line in the freezing cold.

And don’t let the cold temperatures tempt you into letting your car idle for a lengthy period of time to warm it up. Idling for extended periods can lead to spark plug build up and it also wastes gas.

 

Pine Belt Chevrolet is the Key

Make your service appointment on our website at www.pinebeltchevrolet.com and let us take care of keeping your car winterized and protected. At #PineBeltChevrolet, we know you can keep your vehicle on the road for many miles and many years with the right kind of care. We’re the best among Chevrolet dealers NJ! That’s what we are here for—to keep your vehicle running beautifully for as long as you own it.
