JOKE-I think there’s water in the carburetor

“I think there’s water in the carburetor.”

“How do you know?” said the husband scornfully. “You don’t even know what the carburetor is.”

“I’m telling you,” repeated the wife, “I ‘m sure there’s water in the carburetor.”

“We’ll see,” mocked the husband. “Let me check it out. Where’s the car?”

“In the swimming pool.”

How it Works Automatic Parking Assist Video

How it Works Automatic Parking Assist Video

The technology uses sensors on the front and rear bumpers to detect the width and depth of parallel and reverse right-angle parking spaces to provide hands-free parking help.

How it Works Automatic Parking Assist Video
The SS Chevrolet sedan offers standard Automatic Parking Assist, a technology that uses sensors on the front and rear bumpers to detect the width and depth of parallel and reverse right-angle parking spaces to provide hands-free parking help.
The system can detect obstacles, gauge the size of a parking space, assess distance to the curb and calculate optimum steering angles for each parking space. The driver, following instructions on the Driver Information Center, controls the accelerator and brake while the Automatic Parking Assist controls the steering. Signals sent from the sensors in the bumpers to the electric power steering rack allow the vehicle to steer itself into the space.

For parallel parking, the driver pulls alongside a parking space until the vehicle’s rear bumper passes the rear wheel of the car parked in front of the open space.  The driver then shifts into reverse and the car steers itself into the space. The backup camera provides a visual indication of how close the SS is to surrounding cars.

The reverse perpendicular parking process works in a similar way. The driver presses the Automatic Park Assist button twice and follows instructions in the Driver Information Center to safely park the vehicle.

OnStar 4GLTE cost reduced

General Motors is reducing the cost of its OnStar 4G LTE data plans by up to  50%, the automaker said today.

OnStar 4GLTE cost reduced
OnStar 4GLTE cost reduced

Since 2014, most GM models have come with 4G LTE Wi-Fi connection if owners subscribe to OnStar after a three-month trial period, which is free along with 3 gigabytes of data use. After that, OnStar packages range from $200 to $350 a year.

What changes now is that a 1-gigabyte-per-month plan drops from $20 to $10. A 4-gigabyte plan now costs $40, and a 10-gigabyte-per-month plan comes down from $80 to $40.

“As more people embrace the technology, it brings down the cost of entry for all users,” said Laura Keck, OnStar’s subscriber marketing manager. “With these lower prices, we expect even more customers to use 4G LTE connectivity.”

GM partners with AT&T to deliver the in-vehicle connectivity.

OnStar 4GLTE cost reduced.  Yay!

If you are looking for a vehicle with 4GLTE, please visit our website or drop by our showroom.  Thanks!
