Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and General Motors is giving back in many ways, including a matching effort to those who take advantage of service deals.

Customers who bring their vehicle to Team Auto Group of Salisbury for qualifying services in October can contribute part or all of their rebates... and Chevrolet will match them, up to a total of $150,000.

For example, here are a few specials offered here at TEAM:
  • $39.95 oil and filter change, tire rotation and 27-multi-point inspection is $29.95 after the $10 mail-in rebate
  • $99.95 (per axle) ACDelco Durastop ceramic brake pads service is $74.95 after the $25 mail-in rebate
For more information, click on the link: Certified Service Rebates.

And here's a look at the Camaro SS pace car that TEAM saw at the Charlotte Southern Women's Show.

Here's more info on what Chevrolet is doing to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research:

DETROIT  Chevrolet and General Motors employees, dealers and customers are again uniting against breast cancer, hoping to exceed the nearly $1.1 million raised by the American Cancer Society in 2011 through Chevrolet’s nationwide grassroots support of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks and other activities.

This October’s events include employee- and dealership-sponsored fund-raising walks; a Chevrolet Certified Service matching rebate contribution program; appearances by a specially themed pink Camaro SS pace car and USAC National Midget Car; and test-drive contributions at selected Southern Women’s Shows. Additional Chevrolet activities will be announced in October.
The towers of GM’s Renaissance Center world headquarters in Detroit will once again be lit with bands of pink to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Even the all-new Chevrolet Spark will join in the fight. A special “Pink Out” Spark is designed to honor breast cancer survivors and supporters. It wears a production Techno Pink exterior finish and is embellished with custom pink elements inside and out. The “Pink Out” Spark will visit selected community walks throughout the month.
Last year with Chevrolet’s support, the American Cancer Society raised $1,079,633 in contributions to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. The money helps fund research, wellness and breast cancer awareness education, and support for breast cancer patients and their families.
“The generosity of our employees, dealers and customers shows how everyday heroes can unite to make a difference in eradicating a disease impacting 1.5 million people,” said Don Johnson, vice president, Chevrolet Sales and Service. “For the second year, we are committed to support the American Cancer Society in continuing its fight for more birthdays.”
Johnson will lead Chevrolet’s involvement in Detroit’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk that begins at 9 a.m. Oct. 13 in downtown Detroit.
“The American Cancer Society is thrilled to have the support of Chevrolet and General Motors nationwide to help us lead the fight against breast cancer,” said Jill Elder, vice president, American Cancer Society, Great Lakes Division. “One in every two women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to the American Cancer Society for support. The contributions of General Motors and Chevrolet help make it possible to do the most for people with breast cancer today and enable us to continue the great work we’re doing to find cures to end the disease tomorrow.”

Way to go, TEAM!

Wow, Team Chevrolet is really working hard this year! We had a meeting yesterday (Wednesday) and learned that we are the top-selling dealership in the county! Not only are we the top dealer, we learned a few other amazing things about our dealership that raise the bar for the others around us:

  • Used vehicle sales are up 111 units over the same period in 2011, a 48% increase!
  • Collision center RO's are up 21% over the same period in 2011!
  • Parts Sales are up $50,000 over the same period in 2011!
  • The battle for the highest in sales between service and collision is on and getting tighter. Through five months there is only $15,000 separating the two departments!
Team Chevrolet also recognized a few employees for their time and dedication to the business. 

Rory Blevins was congratulated for 10 years of service in the collision department, on his actual 10-year anniversary! Congrats, Rory, and thanks for all of your dedication to Team!

Danny Carver was congratulated for his 10 years of service in the detail department. He began work at Team May 30, 2002. Thanks for all of your hard work and dedication, Danny!

Salesman Nat Venning and Fleet Salesman Robin Koon were also recognized for their hard work with General Motors and Team, and will be receiving diamond rings through General Motor's Mark of Excellence program. 

Thom Dillard, owner of Team, spoke about his experience at a training at Disneyworld, and encouraged us to adopt Disney's customer service principles. General Manager David Coltrane led the meeting and got us pretty pumped, ready to work to maintain our number one spot!

10 Safest Small Cars in America... we have them!

If you're looking for a safe car, look at Team Auto Group.

For 2012, General Motors has four of the safest cars in the United States: the Buick Verano; Chevrolet Cruze; Chevrolet Sonic; and Chevrolet Volt. And the Sonic and Cruze start at under $20,000. 

Ten cars were chosen as the safest in America, from a list of 35, with General Motors taking up nearly 50% of the top 10 list... we think that's a pretty incredible accomplishment. 

This luxury-oriented adaptation of the compact Chevrolet Cruze sedan packs no less than 10 airbags, including knee-height airbags for the driver and front passenger and seat-mounted airbags for rear riders. Also standard is General Motors’ OnStar safety/communications system that automatically engages to seek assistance if a crash occurs. -

Feeling more upscale than most compact cars, the Cruze is a solid choice for those who want to downsize their rides. In addition to the basics, the Cruze includes 10 standard airbags, including rear seat-mounted and front knee-height airbags. Also included is the OnStar communications/safety system that features automatic crash notification. -

All new for 2012 the Chevy Sonic is a sophisticated and engaging subcompact car. Like the larger Cruze with which it shares powertrains and other components it comes with 10 airbags, including rear seat-mounted and front knee-height airbags, along with the OnStar communications/safety system that automatically calls for assistance in the event of a collision. -

Though at over $39,000 it's costly for what amounts to a compact car, the Volt is an "extended range electric vehicle" that can run for around 40 miles on a charge before a small gas engine takes over to run a generator. It’s officially rated at a combined gas/electric 94 mpg, Knee-height airbags for the driver and front passenger are included, along with the OnStar safety/communications system that affords automatic crash notification. -
