In The Driver’s Seat

September 24, 2012 Leave a comment

Christine Mitchell calls herself “The Car Lady,” but if she wasn’t a licensed technician with 28 years experience, she could easily perform stand-up comedy.

On September 17, Mitchell addressed a full house at Highland GM in Aurora, delivering snippets of automotive wisdom interspersed with jokes and one-liners that kept the audience laughing – and focused on her message of common-sense car care.

She was right at home in the dealership, having spent 12 years as a GM technician, but her words were universal. Be it the often-repeated message of changing your oil, or the more obscure warning about overfilling your gas tank (it can damage your charcoal canister and cost $600 or more), Mitchell gave all those in attendance some advice to consider.

Also speaking at the event was Erynn Real, dealer relationship manager for GM Financial. Working in the auto industry since 1998, she covered all the bases in purchasing a vehicle, including the common debate of whether to finance or lease.

Jennifer Copely, general sales manager at Highland, noted the event was a tremendous success, giving everybody not just an entertaining evening of refreshments and hors d’oevres, but some information they can take home and use right away.

“Next to your home, a vehicle is typically your second-largest purchase,” she adds. “It makes sense to gain a better understanding of how it works, and to commit to do those things we discussed tonight. I hope this event will help our guests extend the life of their investment.”

Donations made at Highland Auto Professional’s ‘In the driver’s seat’ event went to POGO (Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario) to help support kids with cancer across York Region. Catering was supplied by Edward Street Bistro in Aurora

2013 Chevrolet Malibu Has Arrived

September 21, 2012 Leave a comment

The long awaited 2013 Malibu is here and it has been completely re-engineered and redesigned.

The first thing you will notice is its new aerodynamic design. The styling has been optimized to minimize wind resistance and maximize fuel efficiency, but more importantly, it will definitely turn heads as you drive down the St..

The cockpit has been designed to leave the driver feeling fully in control, with everything you need at your fingertips. Audio system controls are on the steering wheel, which tilts and telescopes to maximize comfort. In addition to the analog gauges, the Driver Information Centre adds complementary data.

This car has been designed to put the fun back in driving, with a standard 2.5L ECOTEC® I4 engine with 197 hp. For a little more zip, you can opt for the 2.0L Turbo engine with 259 hp.

Safety was also first and foremost in designers’ minds. The 2013 Malibu has several features specifically designed to help you avoid collisions, including the optional rear vision camera, lane departure warning and forward collision alert, which all used to only be seen in expensive luxury vehicles. Ten standard airbags are there to protect you if a crash does occur.

You will definitely spend less time at the pumps, as the 2013 Malibu uses gas at impressive rate of 8.1 L/100km in the city and 5.3 L/100km on the highway. The advanced Eco powertrain features eAssist™ technology, which adds a 115-volt lithium-ion battery and an electric motor generator. Combined, it gives you greater fuel efficiency.

With its Camaro-inspired styling, willing performance, agile handling and driver-focused cabin, the 2013 Malibu has everything you need and want in a contemporary mid-size sedan.

WInter tires give you more control

September 18, 2012 Leave a comment

Winter is just around the corner and that means that cold temperatures, snow, slush and ice will soon be an everyday reality. It’s important to make sure that your vehicle is ready to handle the onslaught of nasty weather conditions that winter is about to throw your way.

Tires are probably the most important component of your vehicle in the winter, as they are the only part that is touching the road.

You may know and refer to them as snow tires, but these types of tires are designed to contend with more than just the snow. Winter tires is a more apt name, as they are constructed for winter conditions.

In the winter, frost often covers the roads early in the morning. As the sun shines throughout the day, the frost melts and wind blows snow onto the road, leading to very slippery conditions, especially as the temperatures cools off again in the evening. You need more traction from your tires to maintain control on the road.

Even when you are driving on clean, dry roads, if the temperature dips below – 8 ̊C, it can change your ability to properly grip the road with your all season tires, as they have a completely different rubber compound than winter tires.

Most people notice an immediate difference with their stopping distances and traction as soon as they put winter tires on their vehicle.

At Highland GM, they have a great selection of winter tires from several top manufacturers. Not only can their service technicians help you choose the best tires for your vehicle, they can also change and balance the tires for you.

Don’t wait for the snow to fall before getting maximum control on the road! Call Highland GM’s service department at 1-866-980-8037 or for more information and to view current service specials, visit
