GM Creates The First Front Center Air Bag

Just posted on Chevroletinthenews.com – General Motors has just announced its development of the industry’s first front center air bag. This inflatable restraint is designed to protect passengers in the event of a far-side compact.

Soon to be available in the 2013 Chevrolet Traverse, the airbag will deploy to the right of the driver’s side and provide restraint during passenger-side crashes when the driver is the only front occupant. The airbag is structured to act as an energy absorbing cushion between driver and front passenger in both driver- and passenger-side crashes.

Chevrolet Camaro and Corvette Receive 2011 Motorist Choice Awards

Notable automotive industry research companies, IntelliChoice and AutoPacific, today announced the 2011 Motorist Choice Awards. Now in its sixth year, this venerable award series is designed to recognize those vehicles that deliver the compelling combination of high consumer satisfaction and lower-than-expected ownership costs over time.  This year, IntelliChoice and AutoPacific continued categorizing the winners into a collection of 15 popular lifestyle segments that shoppers could easily identify with.

Chevrolet drove home with two awards:

Head-Turner – Chevrolet Camaro

Performance – Chevrolet Corvette

“The Motorist Choice Awards are designed to assist consumers by using a categorization scheme other than traditional vehicle classes. Our research has shown that buyers often shop in more than one vehicle segment based on their needs and uses, rather than simply choosing a segment and then comparing models within it,” said George Peterson, president of AutoPacific.

Each year, AutoPacific performs the broadest and most widely followed owner satisfaction survey in the U.S. with a record of over 72,000 responses in 2011. This study solicits consumer feedback on a recently purchased 2011 vehicle using 48 key attributes covering the entire ownership experience. From these data, AutoPacific compares overall buyer satisfaction between individual models and vehicle classes and announces its annual Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSAs) based on the findings.

Meanwhile, IntelliChoice constantly monitors and adjusts cost of ownership metrics for over 1,800 model trim lines to provide consumers with valuable insight into the financial impact of ownership over a five year time horizon.  This analysis is the foundation of the IntelliChoice Best Overall Value of the Year (BOVY) awards announced each January, and its interim Best Bets awards which were recently announced for the upcoming 2012 model year.

David Maus Chevrolet to Sponsor First Annual 9/11 Heroes Run

David Maus Chevrolet, in partnership with Chevrolet, will be a main sponsor of the upcoming 9/11 Heroes Run to benefit the Travis Manion Foundation on Sunday, September 11th at Central Winds Park in Winter Springs at 7:30am to raise money for 9/11 Heroes and support active military.

Over 26 national races will take place this weekend with this being the first annual event in the Central Florida area remembering, honoring and supporting our men and women in the Armed Services, Police, Fire and First Responder communities who protect and serve our country every day. Chevrolet has made a commitment in each city hosting a race to offer a local Chevrolet dealership a co-sponsor opportunity and David Maus Chevrolet wanted the chance to raise money locally for this cause.

“We are honored to be a part of this event and we will continue to remember all of the 9/11 heroes and our military. We are truly grateful to our troops and community first responders,” said David Maus, Vice President of David Maus Chevrolet.

The Travis Manion Foundation was established after Travis was killed by enemy sniper fire in Iraq. His mother and father founded the Foundation which funds 28-week Fellowships designed to help transition veterans from active duty to civilian life by challenging wounded and disabled veterans to volunteer and continue their service to their community and our country.  Veterans complete monthly progress reports, talk with mentors and receive guidance, and volunteer with local non-profits, schools, and other community or veterans related organizations.

In addition to the event, David Maus Chevrolet has pledged a $500 donation to the Travis Manion Foundation through the monthly Service Contribution Program. The dealership is also collecting food and supplies for troops currently serving overseas and will make shipments in early October.
