when it comes to safety we have tested the chevy cruze to some extreme levels we have crashed it flipped it rolled it and that crash it again over and over and over again all in effort to keep you extremely safe with the hope that you'll never have to experience the same thing yourself we've used high strength steel throughout the safety cage to keep you safe stability track our standard electronic stability control system keeps you in control and pointed in the direction that you intend to go it also features a rollover avoidance technology to keep the wheels below you firmly planted on the road but if extreme physics takes over we have a rollover sensing technology that automatically will inflate the air bags to keep you protected  Now speaking affair bags we didn't stop at the regular six standard airbags like other vehicles in this class we have the usual to up front to curtain airbags to protect the front and the...

Sales of the Nissan Leaf plug-in car soared 180 per cent in August. On the year, sales of the Leaf have nearly doubled.

Over at General Motors Canada, the Volt plug-in also had a relatively great month. Alas, the Toyota Prius plug-in did not fare quite as well, with a sales number so low I am sad even to mention it. But I will. Be patient. And Ford? Ford has made the biggest commitment to electrification of any major car maker, if your measure is the number of plug-in models for sale. Ford has three plug-in models in its lineup – the Fusion Energi, C-Max wagon and Focus EV. Together, these three tallied up August sales of 63 and year-to-date Ford has moved 231 plug-ins. For the record, the purest plug-in of the three, the Focus EV was the least popular in August; just seven were sold. What does that say about pure battery cars?

As you can see, Canadians are NOT stampeding to showrooms, desperate to buy plug-in battery cars. Governments may want them, but not real buyers.

Okay, I’ve...

Test Drive of Chevrolet Cruze in Vancouver Never mind the Cobalt. Forget you ever heard the name Cavalier. The newest compact C-car from Chevrolet is the Cruze – a globally engineered vehicle designed not just to compete in the growing small-car segment, but to win.  And for the first time, well, ever, this isn’t just marketing hype behind a lackluster model with a typically low-grade interior. TINY 4-CYLINDER GETS TURBO-POWER, EXCEPTIONAL FUEL ECONOMY Already on sale in 60 countries worldwide, this global platform still has a few surprises for its North American Vancouver debut. Most notably is the launch of a new turbocharged 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine, designed to deliver the power and driving experience of a larger powerplant with class leading fuel economy. In fact, Chevy claims an ECO model (with a 6-speed manual transmission) will get 40-mpg on the highway. An automatic ECO model will get slightly less, with standard models most likely in the mid 30s range – although no official numbers have...

Vancouver used chevy dealers offer a lot more variety than you’ll find just about anywhere else. Thanks to the fact that the Lower Mainland is not just a well populated area, but also the destination point for many, used vehicles abound. For many searching for used cars, Vancouver Island dealerships come up short and it is often worth the extra fee to travel to the mainland and bring a vehicle back on the ferry, in order to find just what you want.

Not all used Chevys are the same, so it stands to reason that the more you have access to, the better your chances of finding that perfect vehicle. Vancouver used Chevy dealers offer a nice variety of cars and tend to be more extensive than those in smaller cities like Victoria. The bigger the city, the more variety there will be in the used vehicles available at its dealerships, so Vancouver is a very good option if you want something that isn’t as common.

Is it worth a trip to look for Vancouver used Chevy dealers?...

Ready to take your buying experience to a whole new level? You can now find everything online, including trucks. Vancouver dealerships in the know have made it easy to do a search and find out just what they have available on their lots. This means, if you’re looking for a  specific make and model year and even a specific colour, you don’t even have to travel into the city to find out if the dealer carries it.

The older method of seeking out trucks, Vancouver and elsewhere, was to either visit the dealership yourself to check or to call them and hope they knew exactly what vehicles were in their lot at all times. However, this newer method of searching online makes it easier and more efficient to find what you’re looking for.

Not all Vancouver dealers offer this service, but if you don’t live in the city and aren’t interested in spending time on the phone waiting to see if they have what you’re looking for, then you should check out the ones that do offer online searches. This will let you know very...

When it comes to buying a used car in Vancouver, you have a couple of choices as to where you can purchase used autos. Vancouver dealerships are one option, but you can also buy from the individual owners. Some people aren’t sure which option is best, so let’s take a closer look at the two.

Individual Seller

The individual who is selling his car is likely doing it because he has a new vehicle, needs the money or there is something wrong with the car. These vehicles are usually listed online or in the newspaper in classified ads and can seem quite appealing because they may list vehicles that are not as readily available at a dealership. Another good point is that vehicles sold by individuals are usually cheaper than dealers.

However, there is a downside. It’s in the seller’s best interests to keep any previous accidents or non-obvious issues with the car hidden so you will pay more. A common scenario is purchasing a vehicle and then finding a serious defect a few days or weeks down the road,...

Modern advances in clean-burning diesel technology have well and truly nailed the coffin lid shut on automotive terms such as "smoky diesel," "stinky diesel," and, yes, even "Oldsmobile and Chevette diesel." Ill-performing diesel cars rushed to market in the late 1970s and early 1980s in response to the first energy crisis might have left the car-buying public with a bad aftertaste, but a succession of well-regarded turbo-diesels—mostly from German automakers—in recent years has greatly improved prospects. Now with fuel prices climbing and government fuel-economy mandates on the rise, General Motors has an oil-burning version of the Chevrolet Cruze it wants to show you.

Chevrolet's turbo-diesel four-cylinder was conceived in Torino, Italy, and is created in Kaiserslautern, Germany, but it has been educated in the U.S. It's not a new engine, being already used in Opel Astras and various other GM vehicles around the world at...

Quick Take

The 2013 Chevrolet Cruze is one of the smartest picks for anyone wanting practicality, comfort, and safety in a compact sedan—although it's missing the fun-to-drive edge of some other models.

The Chevrolet Cruze is, quite frankly, a better car than the Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla. Behind its subtle styling is a top-shelf alternative to every other car in the compact economy car segment. It's built with excellent safety, features, comfort and interior room–and it's now one of our top recommendations for small cars, alongside the Ford Focus and Hyundai Elantra.

When it was first introduced for the 2011 model year, the Cruze set a new design direction for GM compact cars. And while it isn't all that head-turning from the outside, the interior has one of the most stylish, cohesive layouts in this class of rather look-alike sedans. Inside, rich materials, stunning two-tone combinations, and an upscale feel all keep the Cruze above the rest. The Cruze is...

North Americans are feeling so comfortable with their bank accounts these days that they're re-embracing a Super Gulp mentality. They're eating more hamburgers - at restaurants. They're back to buying McMansions. And, as the major auto makers reported last month, they're also buying trucks - especially the sort of full-size pickups that could plow sedans asunder.

General Motors reported sales of its Silverado were up an astounding 25.3 per cent in May compared with a year earlier - and that's before its long-overdue update, which arrived at dealers this month with the same $32,710 starting price as the outgoing model, despite massive tweaks.

Small might have been big in a down economy, but for the 2014 model year, big is most definitely back en vogue.

Last overhauled from hood to hitch in 2006, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 bullies its way onto the market with an aggressive new body style that should be sold with a testosterone...

Since 2007, the old faithful Chevy Silverado has remain unchanged, as those around it continued to morph and remake themselves. Chevy has had enough with watching all of the other truck manufacturers make changes to their bodies and drivetrains, and decided that 2014 was the model year when things will change.

Chevrolet is testing the all new Silverado for quite some time now, and today - as previously announced - the company decided to drop full details on the pickup truck. All the updates made to the car’s exterior, interior and under the hood have transformed it into the "strongest, smartest, and most capable Silverado ever."
