Reasons to Lease
Clients that like to drive something new every few years or so generally prefer leasing because it’s so easy.
1: You are guaranteed not to have any negative equity. Try getting out of a 72 month finance contract after two years and you’ll find out about negative equity.
2: When your lease is over you just walk away. No trade-in hassle. There is a $350 disposition fees but that is usually waived if you re-lease or purchase another Chevy.
3: You have no maintenance headaches. Your vehicle is under warranty pretty much the entire time of your lease. And, 4 free oil changes are includes at no additional charge. You could actually lease a new Chevy for 24 months and pay ZERO in maintenance during that time.
4: Clients get to drive something new all the time. It’s kind of like waiting for the latest smartphone. No one wants to wait for the latest and greatest. Why wait for all the newest features when you can get something new every few years?
5: Lease Loyalty. GM often offers additional incentives to those folks that are currently in a GM lease to encourage them to re-lease. Hey, extra rebate money is always good, right?

Due to a computer error at General Motors…0% apr has been extended. This was not a planned event. GM had a computer malfunction that kept the Bonus Tags from being announced on time. Due to GM’s boo-boo, our clients benefit by having both Bonus Tags and 0% apr to choose from at the same time! Usually these incentives do not overlap. But, in this rare instance, customers have a win-win choice on their hands. They can choose Bonus Tag Cash Back or 0% apr for up to 72 months.
BONUS TAG CASH BACK
Bonus Tag Cash Back is a Big Deal with rebates up to $18,500! Ok, so the 18 grand is on a new Z06 Corvette…maybe you want a Z06 Corvette. Usually dealers don’t discount Z06’s at all. And to think now you would be getting over $18,000 off…it’s Crazy-Good!
It’s not just Corvettes that have massive Cash-Back. You receive over $10,000 back on many new Silverado models. And, Equinox, Malibu, Cruze, Trax, Traverse etc., all have extra large amounts of Bonus Tag Cash Back.
Additional incentives available in September include: Lease Specials. Gm is offering very attractive lease specials on nearly every 2017 Chevy model. Call our Customer Care Team at 630-898-9630. We will be happy to give you a personalized lease quote based on your preferred vehicle.

Is it worth it to put nitrogen in our tires? Is there any advantage to nitrogen?
Sort of. From the top: Air is 78 percent nitrogen, just under 21 percent oxygen, and the rest is water vapor, CO2 and small concentrations of noble gases such as neon and argon. We can ignore the other gases.
There are several compelling reasons to use pure nitrogen in tires.
First is that nitrogen is less likely to migrate through tire rubber than is oxygen, which means that your tire pressures will remain more stable over the long term. Racers figured out pretty quickly that tires filled with nitrogen rather than air also exhibit less pressure change with temperature swings. That means more consistent inflation pressures during a race as the tires heat up. And when you’re tweaking a race car’s handling with half-psi changes, that’s important. When your driving your Chevy sedan to work every day…it’s probably not that important.
Some dealerships and tire stores claim that filling your tires with nitrogen will save you money on gas while offering better performance than air. But a closer look reveals that nitrogen has few benefits and much higher costs. For starters, a typical nitrogen fill-up will cost you about $6 per tire.

The Get Nitrogen Institute Web site says that with nitrogen tire inflation, drivers will note improvements in a vehicle’s handling, fuel efficiency and tire life. All this is achieved through better tire-pressure retention, improved fuel economy and cooler-running tire temperatures, the institute says.
This sounds great in theory but let’s take a closer look at each of those claims.
Better tire-pressure retention: Over time, a tire will gradually lose pressure. Changes in temperature will accelerate this. The general rule of thumb is a loss of 1 psi for every 10-degree rise or fall in temperature. The institute says that nitrogen has a more stable pressure, since it has larger molecules than oxygen that are less likely to seep through the permeable tire walls.
In 2006, Consumer Reports conducted a year-long study to determine how much air loss was experienced in tires filled with nitrogen versus those filled with air. The results showed that nitrogen did reduce pressure loss over time, but it was only a 1.3 psi difference from air-filled tires. Among 31 pairs of tires, the average loss of air-filled tires was 3.5 psi from the initial 30 psi setting. Nitrogen-filled tires lost an average of 2.2 psi from the initial setting. Nitrogen won the test, but not by a significant margin.
Improved fuel economy: The EPA says that under-inflated tires can lower gas mileage by 0.3 percent for every 1 psi drop in pressure of all four tires. The theory is that since nitrogen loses pressure at a slower rate than air, you are more likely to be at the correct psi and therefore get better fuel economy.
If you are proactive and check your tire pressure at least once a month, you can offset this difference with free air, and you won’t need expensive nitrogen. We think this invalidates the “better fuel economy with nitrogen” argument.
For many people, however, this kind of maintenance is easier said than done. Most people either forget to regularly check and top off their tires, or never learned how to do it in the first place. Even Edmunds employees (typically a pretty car-savvy group) were under-inflating or over-inflating their tires, according to a tire-pressure study we conducted a few years ago.
And though tire-pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) now come standard on cars, a 2009 National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) study found that only 57 percent of vehicles with TPMS had the correct tire pressure. That’s because most systems are only meant to signal that a tire has very low pressure, not to show that the pressure is optimal.
Cooler running temperatures: When air is pressurized, the humidity in it condenses to a liquid and collects in the air storage tank you use at the local gas station. When you add compressed air to the tire, the water comes along for the ride. As the tire heats up during driving, that water changes to a gas, which then expands, increasing tire pressure. Because nitrogen is dry, there is no water in the tire to contribute to pressure fluctuations.
But this fluctuation in temperature isn’t as significant as you might think. A 2008 ExxonMobil study plotted the changes in temperature over the course of various inflation pressures. The lines on the graph were virtually on top of each other. In other words, the change in temperature when using nitrogen was negligible.
Cost and Convenience
Let’s say a person bought a set of tires at Costco, a place that uses nitrogen to fill all the tires they sell. If he needs to top off the tires with more nitrogen, he won’t be able to go to just any gas station. He can use regular air if there is nothing else available, but that would dilute the nitrogen in the tires. He’ll have to go back to Costco and wait until the tire technicians can attend to the car. On a busy day, he could be there awhile.
Nitrogen is free at Costco and at some car dealerships we called, but these are rare cases. We called a number of tire shops that carry nitrogen and found that the prices for a nitrogen fill ranged from $5-$7 per tire. Assuming our consumer was diligent about checking his tires monthly, he could potentially spend about $84 a year on nitrogen alone per tire. Compare that to the most gas stations, where air is free or a 75-cent fill-up for all four tires at the most.
Finding tire shops with nitrogen could be an issue, too. We called a number of large chains, including America’s Tire Co., Discount Tire and Walmart. None carried nitrogen.
Is Nitrogen Worth It?
The air we breathe is made up of 78 percent nitrogen, 21 percent oxygen and a few other elements. To get the desired benefits for tires, nitrogen needs to be at least 93 percent pure, according to nitrogen service equipment providers quoted on Tirerack.com. So we’re basically talking about adding an extra 15 percent of nitrogen and getting rid of as much oxygen as possible.
Based on cost, convenience and actual performance benefit, we don’t think nitrogen is worth it. A much better use of your money would be to buy a good tire-pressure gauge and check your tires frequently. This is a good idea even if you have a tire-pressure monitoring system in your vehicle. The warning lights aren’t required to come on until you have less than 25 percent of the recommended tire pressure. Having the correct tire pressure will get you many of the benefits of using nitrogen and will ensure that your tires last longer.
Are your cars valve stems green? Generally green valve stem caps mean your tires are filled with nitrogen.
