2017 Buick Lineup

Buick is a brand on the rise thanks to its impressive level of comfort features and affordable pricing. The entry-level luxury brand offers a variety of stylish vehicles set to appeal to drivers of all ages. The combination seems to be working wonderfully if Buick’s June sales are anything to go by.

June’s sales mark the closing of the first half of 2017 and the numbers are quite telling, especially for Buick. The brand saw a massive 16.4 percent increase in overall sales thanks in part to its SUV lineup. In all, the brand sold 19,299 vehicles in June alone.

The Buick Envision, a small luxury SUV, saw a massive spike in sales with 5,007 units sold in the month of June. That’s nearly a 250 percent increase in sales year-over-year. The first half of 2017 saw 22,620 units sold compared to just 1,526 units this time last year.

The Buick Encore held strong as well with 6,563 units sold. That’s just shy of an eight percent increase for June. 42,331 Buick Encore SUVs have been sold in 2017, marking a 16.2 percent increase compared to the same time last year.

Summer Driving Tips

Summer Driving

Hitting the road en route to your summer vacation destination is a delight that many Americans take part in year after year. We here at Varney Buick GMC have a few summer driving tips to help you reach your destination safely.

Service

Getting your vehicle fully serviced prior to leaving on a summer drive can help prevent breakdowns. The summer heat is notorious for overheating engines, killing batteries, and causing tire blowouts. Schedule a service appointment to have the professionals perform routine maintenance and spot any potential problems. It’d be best to do so at least a week before leaving so any problems can be fixed.

Fatigue

Driving while fatigued is a recipe for disaster, especially during summer when many people are making their summer drives as well and the roads are extra crowded. Take some time to stop, stretch, grab something to eat, and relax for a few minutes. Doing so can help prevent a potential accident and help you stay alert. If you’re feeling particularly tired, you should pull over and take a nap.

Kids and Pets

Kids and pets are especially susceptible to high temperatures if they’re trapped in a car. Never leave a child alone in a parked car. Look in both the front and back seats to ensure you don’t forget a sleeping child or pet.
