After spending the time and money purchasing a new car, regardless of whether it's new or used and the type of vehicle you get, the last thing you want is to have car problems.

Why Spring Is the Best Time to Change Your Air Filter
When spring finally arrives, the first thing you want to do is let fresh air into your home. So why should your car be any different? There is a small but important component in your car called the air filter. It performs a number of critical tasks such as purifying the cabin's air, providing the engine with clean air, and regulating the air-fuel balance in your vehicle's fuel system. As a result, it improves your vehicle's fuel economy and the engine's performance. By improving the car's fuel economy alone, you'll already save a significant amount of money at the pump. Here are more compelling reasons to keep your car's air filter working properly.
Cleaner Cabin Air
Whether it's hot and humid or there is too much pollen in the air, there are days when you prefer to roll up the windows an...
Winter can be a harsh season for your car, and it can be especially stressful if you have a breakdown. Preparing your car for the winter is a proactive choice that you definitely want to make, and it can reduce a great deal of frustration and might even save you money in the process.
Using these five essential tips, you can empower yourself and be prepared for the unexpected!
1. Tire Rotation and Tire Pressure Check
Having your tires rotated is extremely important for the winter season. Worn tires are extremely vulnerable to cold weather and will interfere with the stopping power needed during a snowfall or cold rainy conditions. The tire pressure should also be checked during the tire rotation, as well as throughout the entire winter season. An under-inflated tire can be very hazardous, a...
Having your car's oil changed is one of the simplest and also one of the most crucial service steps you can take to keep your vehicle running great. There are a few different ways to tell when it's time for an oil change, but it's always a good idea to check your user manual for the manufacturer's recommended intervals as well.
Look At Your Oil
If you're wondering when to change your oil, one of the easiest ways to check is to remove the dipstick and inspect the appearance. Clean oil is a relatively light amber color and should show up that way on the dipstick. Old oil is dark brown. One rule of thumb is that if you can see the dipstick through the oil, the oil is fine. If not, then it needs to be changed. If you decide to keep an eye on your oil this way, you should check it every month....
How the All-New 2019 Chevy Blazer Is the Perfect Combination of Technology and Comfort
For the last decade, Chevrolet car-buyers have had the privilege of really good choices for deciding whether to purchase an SUV or a midsize sedan; however, there seemed to be something missing from the lineup. For many generations, the Chevy Blazer was the popular choice among available SUV's and it is still considered to be relevant to buyers. Chevrolet made the last Blazer in 2005. Because crossovers have already been extremely successful with the manufacturer's lineup, it was just a matter of time before the Blazer would make its comeback! This past June, General Motors unveiled the newly redesigned, and iconic, Chevy Blazer in Atlanta. The 2019 Chevy Blazer was reintroduced as a crossover and will hold the slot between the Equinox and the Transverse in the Chevrolet lineup. Since 1983...
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is an amazing work of engineering expertise. The new model loses 450 pounds off its body, but it doesn't lose a bit of its functionality and toughness. That took some doing on the part of Chevrolet. Trim levels are as impressive as ever: Trailboss, LT, RST, Work Truck, LT Trailboss, LTZ, and of course, High Country. There's no shortage of options to choose from when you choose a Silverado. Few other models of vehicles offer you the sheer number of customization that the Silverado does, and that means you can make this your truck from head to toe.
What Does the New Silverado Feature?
We'll be looking at mostly the Work Truck (WT) here, but let's not forget all those other trims are worth asking about, too. If you find that the Work Truck almost meets your needs,...
The Chevrolet lineup is exceptionally diverse, offering everything from the subcompact Spark and electric Bolt to three-row Tahoe SUVs and the big Silverado pickup. However, all of these cars, trucks, crossovers, and SUVs share at least one characteristic. Every single one of them can have a 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot.
How is this possible? Wifi tethering is available across the lineup via OnStar. Each new model comes with the equipment you need to claim a 4G LTE hotspot, which is a feature that makes sense in a busy world. Most automakers aren't offering this possibility on many of their budget models or the base trims for their more expensive styles.
New Chevy buyers appreciate a complimentary three-month subscription, and it gives them time to learn more about how WiFi will benefit them in their ...
