Chevy recently released Total Confidence Pricing on almost every new 2012 Chevy Vehicle. Now you can purchase a vehicle at the same preferred price as many other discount programs. It doesn’t stop there though. You can also us the current incentives with it. Now is a great time to purchase a new 2012 Chevy Camaro, Equinox or Cruze which rarely have any incentives. On top of that Chevy is offering a 60-day “Love it or Return it” guarantee. If you don’t love the vehicle after 30 days, you have 30 more days to return it at no charge.
In 2012 Chevrolet released their biggest and baddest production Camaro ever, the 580hp ZL1. First State Chevy has had one on order for a while now. Anticipating its arrival, one of our customers didn’t want to miss his chance at this one and put money down on her before she got off the truck. Luckily she was in our presence long enough to pose for her first photo shoot. Lets take a look…
One word, Aggressive…chin spoiler, black 20″ wheels, projector head lights, fog lamps.ProminenceDual-mode Performance Exhaust roars with every touch of the accelerator, 11″ wide rubber and rear deck lid spoiler to keep her from lifting off.285/35ZR20 Tires wrapped around 20X10″ Black 10-spoke wheels. * Brakes, 4-wheel antilock, 4-wheel disc, Brembo performance 6 piston front and 4 piston rear brakesThe ZL1 hood with carbon fiber weave insert. I wanna go fast! I wanna go fast! How about a 580 hp Supercharged 6.2L V8 power plant. 556 lbs of torque at 4200 rpm. And yeah…it requires the Gas Guzzler Tax, small price to pay to go fast!

Chevrolet’s Camaro has had boys and men dreaming since 1966. I’d be politically inncorrect if I didn’t say it had the ladies dazzled just the same. As a matter of fact, here at First State Chevy we sell just as many to women as we do teenagers and middle-aged men. Truth is, the Camaro has a little something for everyone.
Here at First State Chevrolet we sell products that we truly believe in and use ourselves. Today I want to talk a little bit about Glasscoat made by Simoniz USA. When you purchase a new car it is usually the 2nd largest investment you’ll ever make aside from the purchase of your home. It only makes sense to protect that investment with a quality product like Simoniz. When you purchase a new vehicle and leave the dealership, the only thing on that vehicle that is not under warranty is your paint. Yes defects are covered, but anything from hard water, bird droppings, and tree sap can leave you with a blemished vehicle and large bill to cover. With Simoniz Glasscoat applied to that car, it covers the outside with a glass type resin protecting your paint from the elements. Wouldn’t it be nice to never have to wax your car again? With Glasscoat applied, all you have to do is wash and shammy it off. If any blemish were to appear from acid rain, tree sap, bird droppings, all road de-icing materials, spray paint, insects, hard water spots, or UV damage within 7 years of the manufacture date it is covered under warranty. If you are unable to clean the blemish off with soap and water, bring it to the dealer you purchased from to have it taken care of at no cost to you. Take a look at this product failure demonstration…
Not only does Simoniz protect the exterior of your vehicle. It will also cover the interior. It uses DuPont’s Teflon surface protector. It covers all consumable foods, chewing gum, make-up, crayons, ink, vomit, blood, urine stains, pet waste, dye transfer from clothing.
The product was even featured on the History Channel’s show ‘Modern Marvels’ see below…
Now if your car has been Simonized it doesn’t mean you don’t have to wash, shammy, and clean it. In order to keep its warranty coverage you need to complete this maintenance as normal. Only when you are unable to remedy any blemishes yourself will Simoniz cover you to have them fixed at the dealer.

Chevrolet recently announced the will no longer make the Chevy Avalanche following the 2013 model year. That just means the time and availability of these unique SUV/trucks will be limited. If you are thinking of getting one, now is the time to keep an eye out or put in an order. Today we are going to show you how to use one of the features that makes the Avalanche a special vehicle. The mid-gate on an Avalanche is easily removable to transform its bed in to 8ft in length. Watch below…
With fuel economy a top concern for many car buyers, GM works hard to minimize the weight of their vehicles which in turn helps improve gas mileage. One way they are doing that is by excluding the spare tire and including a 5 year / 100,000mile roadside assistance and a tire inflator kit. It might concern some, but we think is pretty ingenius. This inflator kit will get you back on you way much quicker than a spare unless of course you have a complete blow out, thats when the roadside assistance comes tot he rescue. Today, we are going to take a look at how to use the inflator kit included on many new 2012 cars. Here we demostrate on a new 2012 Chevy Camaro 2SS. Lets take a look….
So you have your eye on a brand new Chevrolet car or truck but you can’t justify spending what the sticker price says…who says you have to pay that much? If you talk to one of our Sales Team at 1st State Chevy we will always go through each discount to make sure you save as much as possible on your new vehicle. Just to get an idea before hand, let’s go over a few ways that you can save the most money possible on a brand new Chevrolet and drive away with a smile. GM has several discount programs that will get you a price much lower than stick and sometimes lower than invoice. Here at 1st State Chevy we paticipate and encourage you to take advantage of them. Here they are below…
It’s easy to save big on an eligible, new Chevrolet, vehicle of your choice! Just register for the Credit Union Member Discount from GM** today, and you can receive Preferred Pricing, which is a special discounted price below the MSRP. Tired of military discounts that don’t rank? We’re proud to offer you the best military discount from any car company. With the GM Military Discount, Active Duty members, Reserves and Retirees, including their spouses, of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, National Guard and Coast Guard can save big on most 2012 and remaining 2011 Chevrolet vehicles! Are you a USAA member? Add another $750 to this discount!It’s the best discount from any car company for recent grads and students in college or a graduate program. And it can help you save big on a great new ride to call your own.
Visit each discount program website or contact us at 1st State Chevy to make sure you qualify for one of these programs. So…you qualify for one? That means you now receive prefered pricing, military pricing, or college pricing on any qualifying vehicle. Just as an example, if you were looking at a new Silverado, special pricing saves you $2600 off sticker! But wait, you can save more. You can also tack on any GM rebates available. On a new 2012 Silverado pickup that is $2000 cash and a $2000 trade bonus. That makes for a total savings of $6600. Saving that would lower your monthly payment by $125 a month or help you increase equity into your vehicle faster.
The point behind this post is that when you are browsing on the lot or online, don’t think sticker price is always the final price. Here at 1st State Chevy, saving you money gets us just as excited as it does you!
Here at First State Chevrolet, we take just as much pride in our pre-owned selection of vehicles as we do our brand new Chevrolets. Why you ask? The majority of our pre-owned vehicles are GM Certified. Many don’t know what makes a Certified vehicle better than some used car lot special. Lets go over so of the advantages…
Its easy to see that purchasing a GM Certified pre-owned vehicle can take the guess work and uncertainty out of buying pre-owned. Right now that are opportunities to take advantage of special rates such as 1.9% for 36-months on Chevrolet Cobalt, HHR, Impala, Malibu, Silverado, Traverse and many more.
One of the great new technologies available to Gm customers is the Onstar RemoteLink application for iPhones and other smart phones. The link is downloadable for free through your app store. The only thing needed is a subscription through Onstar. Luckily, every new Chevy car or truck comes with a 6 month trial of Onstar with directions and connections. This allows you 6 months of use with this application for free as well. I’m sure many saw the use of the app on Chevy Cruzes commercial last year. The husband called his wife to have her start the Chevy Cruze in the driveway as she was boarding a plane at the airport. She opened her RemoteLink app while on the plane and started the car at home while the husband and his neighbor stood watching. Many of our customers had no idea that the app works with many other vehicles in the Chevy line. I used it with my 2011 Silverado this past winter, and with the cold weather it was a life saver. Especially since the remote start on your key fob only works from 200 feet. Lets take a look at the different screens on the app and how they give me information on my Silverado and control to start, stop, unlock and lock my truck…Here is a look at my home screen on my iPhone. Notice the icon for the RemoteLink app in the second row.Once you open the app, it refreshes the status of your Chevy from the last time the vehicle was started. Here is shows me my fuel level, remaining oil life, lifetime gas mileage, current odometer reading, and when the information was recorded.
The next screen is your remote control. Here you can signal with horn and lights, lock, unlock, remote start or cancel start. In order to do so all you need is cellphone signal.
As a security feature, the App requires you to enter your preset PIN number to control your vehicle.
If you select the last screen labeled more, you’ll find more information such as your vehicle’s VIN, your Onstar account number and more. The app is truly user friendly, even for new smart phone users. Take advantage your vehicles remote capabilities from the classroom, your office, the supermarket or anywhere else that is too far for your key fob to work.
