Let GMC Help Manage your Chaos with a Spacious Crossover

By now, the school year is in full swing. For many parents this also means their lives are in constant go mode with soccer practice, dance classes, football games, after school band marching band rehearsals, and more. It can be hard to manage your chaos, but GMC wants to help.

GMC’s lineup of modern, capable, and spacious crossovers and SUVs may just be the perfect solution for controlling all the after school madness.

2016 GMC Terrain

On the small end of the spectrum, there is the GMC Terrain. It offers seating for up to five passengers and has exclusive MultiFlex sliding seating that allows you to expand the cargo space when you need it and give passengers extra leg room when you don’t. Behind the rear seat, you can have as much as 31.6 cubic feet of space, more than enough for a saxophone case, a pair of dance shoes, and a bag with all your soccer equipment.

2015 GMC Acadia

Step up a notch to the GMC Acadia, and you’ll get seating for seven or eight passengers. With the SmartSlide seating in the second row, passengers can easily access the third row of seats. And, with the third row folded, you gain 70.1 cubic feet of cargo space.

2015 GMC Yukon

At the top of the scale is the Yukon. You’ll be able to squeeze up to eight passengers inside—enough for a basketball team, a coach, and two reserve players. And, with the spacious interior, nobody will feel cramped and you’ll still have lots of cargo space behind the third row.

Fall Car Care Tips

Fall Road

Fall is officially here—the temperatures are cooling off, the leaves are starting to change, and you can finally wear your favorite sweatshirts again. While you’re enjoying all your pumpkin-flavored food and putting out your Halloween decorations, don’t forget to take care of your car.

Here are a few fall car care tips to get you through this season and prepare you for the next.

  1. Wiper blades. Fall weather usually means more rain. You don’t want to be caught in a storm with ineffective wipers blades, so make sure they aren’t cracked or torn. As a general rule, wiper blades should be replaced every six months.
  2. You don’t want your brakes to fail when you’re trying to stop on a slick road. Have them inspected to make sure the pads aren’t overly worn and everything works properly.
  3. HVAC system. Make sure everything in the heating and cooling systems in your car works. Even when it’s cold outside, air conditioning is important when it comes to removing moisture from the inside of your windows.
  4. As the temperatures drop, so will the pressure in your tires. Be sure to check your tire pressure regularly and check for any signs of excessive wear, like bulges or bald spots on your tires. You also want to make sure the tread is deep enough so you have enough traction to navigate over wet roads.
  5. Check your battery to make sure all the connectors are corrosion-free. It is also a good idea to have the battery and charging system checked to make sure they are ready for the cold weather ahead. If your battery is older than 3, it may be time to replace it.
