GM Offers RemoteLink for All 2014 Vehicles

This week, GM announced that it will include RemoteLink Key Fob Services as a standard feature for all 2014 Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles.

The service, which will come standard on thirty-six GM vehicles, will be free for all drivers for 5 years and will be downloadable immediately following the purchase of a 2014 GM car.

“Our vehicles are getting more connected, and so are we. As mobile devices become a bigger part of our lives, GM understands the importance of providing our customers the ability to use these devices as part of their vehicle experience,” said Mary Chan, a Toyota spokesperson.

Bradshaw Celebrates 25 Years with Buick

Last week, Bradshaw Buick GMC Cadillac was recognized for its 25-year anniversary as a Buick dealership. Buick representatives stopped by our dealership to commemorate the occasion and to present Wes Bradshaw with a memorial plaque.

Bradshaw Automotive Celebrates 25 Years with Buick

This 25-year anniversary is very exciting and flattering to Bradshaw Automotive, a dealership with a humble beginning and a hard-working mentality that ultimately led us to success.

Bradshaw Automotive was founded in 1979 in Greer, South Carolina by William Bradshaw, who purchased an Oldsmobile and Cadillac dealership with his wife, Annette. Initially putting their home and life’s savings on the line, the Bradshaws worked hard to develop the dealership, eventually adding a Buick store in 1987, with Chevrolet, Acura, Honda, GMC and more following soon after.

Today, Bradshaw Automotive has grown to employ over 300 people, quite an improvement over the mere 15 employees that worked at the dealership in 1979. Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac has earned numerous awards as one of the five dealerships that make up Bradshaw Automotive, including being named South Carolina Dealer of the Year by DealerRater for each of its four makes.

Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac is extremely honored to have spent 25 years as a dealer of new and used Buick vehicles.
