May 28, 2015 - 11:16 AM - by

GM quietly revealed when the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze will make its debut.

In announcing its dedication to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay technologies, the American automaker said that the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze will make its debut on June 24 and will be one of 14 Chevrolet models to include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

Do I Really Need Premium Gas?

May 21, 2015 - 9:48 AM - by

Cost is often the first thing that comes to mind when motorists think of gasoline. Many will drive halfway across town to save a couple cents per gallon. Additionally, purchasing regular-grade fuel to save money can be an exercise in false economy, especially if your vehicle is designed for premium gas.

Running fuel with insufficient octane can cause internal engine damage, which isn’t pretty. “The worst case scenario …. You could actually [melt] holes in the pistons and cause catastrophic damage to the [connecting] rods,” said Bill Studzinski, GM powertrain fuels group manager. Fortunately a disaster of this caliber is unlikely in today’s highly tuned, computer-controlled powerplants. Still he said, “You should follow the owner’s manual guidance.”

What’s more apt to happen when there isn’t enough octane is a phenomenon called spark knock.

Spadafora spent the majority of his career in working in the service department of several dealerships and receiving factory training from GM. He’s certified as a Master Technician and certified by Chrysler as a Dodge Viper technician . He also holds certifications from Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Lexus and Scion as well, so if there’s something wrong with your car, chances are he’s seen it before.

To diagnose the reason your car isn’t starting, you need to pay attention to happening when you turn the key. 'Does the engine crank but not actually start or, when you turn the key, does literally nothing happen?' he said. 'In a customer’s eyes, the following two options are the same because both create a scenario that results in
