Last Update: June 2016

Please note: If you have a 2016 Sonic or Spark, you have Apple Car Play and Android Auto, which allows you to project your iPhone maps or your Google maps onto Chevy Mylink infotainment screen. You do not have Apple Car Play or Android Auto if you have a 2016 Trax, or 2013-2015 Sonic or Spark.

Did you know premium navigation capability is available in your 2013-2016 Chevrolet Trax, Sonic or Spark?

Yep! As long as you have a 2013 or newer version of the Chevy Mylink Infotainment System in one of the aforementioned Chevy vehicles, you can utilize BringGo — a high-end, full-feature, smart-phone-to-car navigation system.

Via bluetooth and USB connection, the BringGo navigation screen is mirrored to your infotainment unit in your Chevy. What’s different about BringGo is that app’s map data lives completely on your compatible smartphone, so you’re not using your phone plan’s data, like you would if you were using Google Maps.

The app is available for IOS and Android. It’s only 99 cents for a 30 day trial. After that, it’s a $50 one-time charge. Or, $60 if you want full access to available updates.

Why Cruze Diesel is the New Black

I’ve sold three 2014 Cruze Diesel models over the last year. And I’m a fan.

We currently have 11 2014 Cruze Diesel models (and two 2015 models) in our inventory at Berger Chevrolet and I decided people should know more about this diesel sedan option for their next vehicle purchase. Before I go on, please note there is $3500 factory rebate on 2014 model year Cruze’s this month. That’s on top of any other incentives buyers qualify for, like the GM Employee Discount or even the Credit Union Discount.

So, back the the 2014 Cruze Diesel, specifically… Each of my Cruze Diesel owners are engineers in the auto industry. One is an actual GM employee. Two are women.

The 2.0 L turbo charged clean diesel 2014 Cruze gets 48 mpg. You can travel 717 miles on one tank, which is about halfway from Detroit to Fort Lauderdale. Topping the Volkswagen Jetta TDI diesel, the Cruze Diesel has 151 horsepower and 264 pound-foot of torque. About 400 lbs. heavier than the gas-engine Cruze, the Diesel model has some serious power and is a blast to drive. It’s German-built diesel engine includes overboost function, providing additional torque for extra passing power.

With an MSRP of around $27K, the 2014 Cruze Diesel comes standard with leather upholstery, rear vision camera, remote start, 17′ alloy wheels, 6-speed automatic transmission, a six-way adjustable driver’s seat and heating for both front buckets. Chevy MyLink, a seven-inch touchscreen display system and Bluetooth connectivity are also standard. Includes a diesel fuel app to show drivers where they can fill up.

At the 2LT Cruze trim levell, all 2014 Cruze models come with “driver convenience package” including an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, illuminated vanity mirrors, a rear-view camera and heated side mirrors. The Cruze Diesel’s design features an aerodynamic package, including front grill air shutters and a spoiler. There’s also an enhanced safety package option that adds blind spot monitoring, rear parking assistance and cross-traffic alerts — none of which are offered on the Jetta. The Cruze Diesel earned a 5-star safety rating, helped by 10 standard airbags.

Other goodies with a 2014 or newer Chevy include six-month Onstar and three-month XM radio trials, Onstar Remote Link Key Fob Service (which allows you to start your car from your phone and is free for 5 years even without an Onstar subscription), 5 years Chevy Roadside Assistance and two years free scheduled maintenance, including oil changes, tire rotations, 27-point inspection, oil filter and diesel exhaust fluid refill.

How School Employees Can Get a GM Discount

Updated: October 2, 2015

General Motors is giving all School Employees a discount equivalent to GM Supplier Pricing on the purchase or lease of a new Chevrolet!

The GM Educator Discount is offered to the entire education community, including current employees of a public school, private school, college or university. This program provides the same price GM suppliers receive on the purchase or lease of a new Chevrolet. Plus, participants can combine this discount with most current offers to save even more.

To take advantage of this opportunity, participants must create an account at GMeducatordiscount.com. Once logged in to the site, you can request an authorization number for the purchase or lease of a new Chevrolet. You may request up to two authorizations for up to (2) vehicles. GM Educator Discount authorization numbers are valid through Sept. 30, 2015.

Simply take your authorization number and a recent pay stub or ID badge from your school to your GM Dealer when you are ready to purchase or lease.

See program details at gmeducatordiscount.com for more information. Or contact Sylvia at Berger Chevrolet in Grand Rapids, Michigan, 616-575-9624.
