Boyle Buick GMC Truck is on Foursquare

Boyle Buick GMC Truck is on foursquare!  So, what’s that, you ask???  Foursquare is a location-based social networking website used on smartphones where users can “check-in” at venues using the application by selecting from a list of venues the application locates nearby. Your location is picked up by GPS hardware in the smartphone or network location provided by the application. Each check-in awards the user points and sometimes “badges”.  From a business perspective, users can also leave “tips” or reviews based on their experience at a business.

So, what’s in it for me you might ask???  Well, one way a business can drive customers to their store is by offering a “check-in” special.  This pretty much works like a coupon and if you “check-in”  at the business, you unlock the special.  Boyle Buick GMC Truck is currently offering a “check-in” special!  This month’s special is $5 off your oil change and tire rotation. 

Come see us today and “check-in” to receive your discounted oil change and tire rotation and leave a tip/review while you are here!

It’s all about GMC

So, after 40+ years as a Buick dealer, we have become very accustomed to talking about Buick but this summer, there seems to be so much going on with GMC!  Thought we would take a little time to share all the good news.

We won’t spoil the surprise with details, but the all-new 2013 Acadia should be on our lots by the end of the year.

The new 2013 Terrain Denali, set to debut in the next few months, is not only beautiful but it will come standard with rear cross traffic alert.   This type of safety technology uses radar to watch for moving vehicles or objects while you are backing up and warns you with an icon on the Color Touch Radio screen.

GMC is once again offering it’s “Gas Saver Bundle”.  A $29.95 (or less after $10 mail-in rebate debit card) package that includes an oil change, four-tire rotation, and 27 point vehicle inspection.  The inspection includes checking fluid levels, steering, suspension, wiper blades, exhausts, belts, brakes, hoses, and tires.  inspecting your vehicle will help make sure your car is running as efficient as possible.  Make an appointment today.

Finally, the GMC Summer Event always makes summertime a great time to but a new GMC.  Offers include 0% financing for up to 72 months OR $2,000 cash back on the Acadia, up to $5,000 cash back or 0% financing for up to 60 months on the GMC Sierra, incremental customer cash for customers who are new to GMC and offers for GMC loyalty! 

Congratulations Mike Hoke!

Congratulations to Sales Consultant, Mike Hoke, on his retirement after 38 and a half years in the business!  Mike’s career resulted in the sale of almost 5,000 vehicles!  Mike announced his retirement in April and spent his last day with us on May 15th.  Boyle Buick GMC Truck was very fortunate to have Mike for seven out of those 38+ years; he joined our team in July of 2005.  During his time at Boyle Buick GMC Truck, Mike was not only very successful in the sale of vehicles but he was a perfect fit for the Boyle team as he also enjoyed very high customer satisfaction ratings.  When asked about his time at Boyle Buick GMC Truck, Mike stated, “For the 38 and a half years I was in the business, I worked for four dealerships and Boyle Buick GMC Truck was, by far, the most pleasurable place I ever worked.”  Thanks, Mike, and enjoy your retirement; you certainly deserve it! 

Mike and his wife, Joyce, are looking forward to spending time enjoying their three daughters and their husbands and two grandchildren.

Everyone is Asking, “What’s My Car Worth?”

There are many reasons today why people are looking for the value of their vehicle.  Do they want to trade it in for something more fuel efficient?  Is it worth what they owe?  How much equity do they have in the car?  Vehicle values today can be somewhat controversial and change daily.  Some compare it to the stock market, trading one value today and another tomorrow.  The internet and printed guides have a challenge keeping up but they try.  Here is a quick summary of all of the resources out there when trying to get the value of a trade-in:

1. Kelly Blue Book – A great resource for a retail price, trade-in pricing and private party transactions and is probably used by consumers most.  Due to time between updates, values may not always be consistent with current market trends. 

2. Black Book (whom we endorse) – Used by dealers and consumers for the most current wholesale values.  It is widely used by dealers because it is updated weekly from actual nationwide auctions.  Consumers should use caution with these numbers because an “extra clean” value from Black Book meeans that the vehicle is like “brand new.”  This is always controversial.

3. N.A.D.A – A very complex but easy to read guide that is used for multi purposes by banks, dealers, consumers and insurance companies.  This guide is widely used to break down a vehicle identification number by year, make, model, equipment package, insurance rating categories, specifications on engines and more,  This guide also breaks down values in many categories. 

4. Edmunds – One of the newest guides.  This guide can be outdated in certain areas and does not always report the accurate dealer cost. 

5. Red Book – One of the oldest and least used guides in today’s market.  It is known for being used by insurance companies for values to determine total loss.  It has also been used to determine what class a car should rate for insurance premiums. 

Our team at Boyle Buick GMC Truck certainly wish there was a dealer guide for dealers who give the most fair and accurate value of a trade; we are certain that we would rank at the top of the list.  We pride ourselves on fair deals and exceptional satisfaction and sometimes, that starts with the appraisal.  If you are interested in the value of your vehicle, visit our Black Book link on-line or stop by anytime and ask for Brooke or Herb.  We would be happy to help!
