• Teen Driver System Now in Nine Chevrolets

    8/23/2016 4:06:32 PM - by Amy Riley



    In a Harris Poll survey of parents with children aged 13 – 17 years old, 55% of respondents listed “Driving without adult supervision” as the area of parental stress they worry about the most. Chevrolet has developed a system now available in nine different Chevy models to alleviate some of that stress. Teen Driver Technology provides audio and visual warnings when the vehicle exceeds a speed the parents have preset, mutes the radio until front seatbelts are buckled, and provides parents with a report card of their teens’ driving habits. This report card tracks the distance driven in a trip, the maximum speed driven, and lists the number of times the teen driver was warned for exceeding the preset speed, as well as a list of times available active safety features like Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, and Stability Control were activated. Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort and Lansing has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a great selection of vehicles equipped with Teen Driver, including the Chevrolet Camaro, Colorado, Cruze, Malibu, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, and Volt

    8/22/2016 1:51:20 PM - by Amy Riley


    As we’re waiting for the public debut of the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, the general public got the chance to witness a presentation of the 2017 Camaro ZL1 during an event called Factory Fest. The project’s lead engineer, Al Oppenheiser, revealed the six speed manual transmission will hit 60 mph in first gear, thus improving its acceleration time from a standing start. Not only will it hit 60mph, Chevy is giving its buyers a line-locking feature that disengages the rear brakes so users can properly warm up the rear tires at the drag strip. Customers will be able to enjoy testing the performance of their ZL1 themselves thanks to the on-board performance data recorder. As a bonus, drivers of the manual version will also be able to enjoy the rev-matching feature for smoother down changes. More details will be released in the coming months, so stay tuned to this blog for the latest ZL1 news! Phillips Chevrolet or Frankfort & Lansing has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a great selection of Camaros which the ZL1 will join before the end of the year.

  • Chevy Has Had to Replace Zero Degraded Volt Batteries Yet

    8/18/2016 1:52:36 PM - by Amy Riley


    Here’s some comforting news for the first-generation Chevy Volt owners; a total of zero Volt battery packs have been replaced. GM recently invited members of the press to its Brownstone Battery Assembly Plant for a tour and sit down discussion with some execs. There wasn’t a lot of new information to be revealed until there was a brief discussion on the first-generation Volt. According to the press, the factory is still tooled up to produce batteries for the original Volt because GM is required to have a capacity on hand to produce replacement battery packs for warrantied vehicles up to 10 years. When the press asked if GM has replaced 1 first-generation Volt’s battery pack, the response was surprising. It’s amazing a grand total of zero Volt packs have been replaced because of general capacity degradation. And there are some seriously high mileage Volts out there, one owner clocking over 200,000 miles. The verdict is in and the Volt battery pack stands the test of time.  Phillips Chevrolet of Frankfort & Lansing has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a great selection of Volts!
