2018 Buick Regal GS Makes World Debut

There are some pretty big, pretty cool changes happening for the upcoming 2018 Buick Regal. This mid-size sedan has received a complete makeover. The standard four-door Regal sedan says goodbye, as it’s replaced by a sportier, hatch-styled Regal Sportback and a crossover wagon Regal TourX.

Standing hand-in-hand with the Buick Sportback is the 2018 Buick Regal GS, which makes its world debut this year. It’s a sleek, impressively advanced sport sedan that’s made to combine the best in modern utility and thrilling performance. It’s ok to take the 2018 Buick Regal GS on your daily commute, but it’s also ok to have a little fun with it, too.

The 2018 Buick Regal GS features a new V6 engine that produces 310 horsepower and gets paired with a nine-speed transmission and intelligent all-wheel drive. Its sleek, aerodynamic five-door silhouette is as useful as it is stylish. The attractive appearance is enhanced with details like standard 19-inch wheels and a rear spoiler. Standard Brembo brakes round out a powerful performance with extra responsive handling.

The 2018 Buick Regal Sportback and GS will arrive at dealerships like Bradshaw Automotive late this year. Be sure to check in and take this high-performance Buick out for an unforgettable test drive once it arrives out on our lot.

A Vehicle Service Checklist for After the Holidays

MaintenanceDuring the holiday season, it can be difficult to stay on top of vehicle maintenance, but once you’ve had some downtime after New Year’s, it’s important to take your vehicle in for inspection, especially if you traveled to visit relatives during the holidays. Here’s a vehicle service checklist to help you to know where to start.

Battery and Charging System: Cooler temperatures reduce battery capacity, so your battery is more likely to die in the colder months. Check battery connections, the charging system, and the charge of the battery itself.

  • Drive Belts and Hoses: Old engine belts will wear, crack, and snap over time, which could cause incredible amounts of engine damage. Hoses are important, too, for keeping your engine cool with anti-freeze.
  • Tire Pressure: Like batteries, tire pressure is negatively affected by low temperatures. Colder air makes tires lose their pressure faster, so make sure your tires are properly inflated.
  • Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning: The HVAC system is crucial to defrosting and staying warm in the winter.
  • Brakes: Brakes should always be in good working order, especially if you expose your vehicle to slick road conditions or hazardous weather.

Keep up with this vehicle service checklist after the holidays to make sure your car is ready to face the cold temperatures that January and February bring to the table.
