The Chevrolet Malibu has evolved to be more "you" orientated - giving owners more control and more comfort. Chevy has redesigned the exterior to make it more luxury-like, and the engine options are more fuel-efficient, but the biggest change is in its forward-thinking technology.
1. Track Your Teen's Driving Habits
It's your money and your car. You should be able to protect your investment and your kids' safety. The Malibu makes it easy to instill good driving habits into your teenagers.
The stereo will mute if seatbelts aren't worn.
Audible and visual warnings are emitted if a driver travels over preset speeds.
It tracks and reports on Forward Collision Alert or Lane Departure Warning triggered events.

Fall is here. Pumpkins, costumes and colored foliage are the in thing. What else is in? October is Car Care month. It's time to prepare your vehicle for winter. Check the below items on your vehicle and be prepared for changing weather and climates.
A bad battery in fall could ruin your Halloween and Thanksgiving plans. Instead of socializing in costumeland or enjoying a nice pumpkin pie, you could be standing in the cold waiting for a tow truck. Which would you prefer? If you notice your car is experiencing slow starts in the morning, has dimming lights or is starting to accumulate corrosion on the battery terminals, you should have the battery checked as soon as possible.
Changing tires on the side of the road can be a pain. If you enjoy it, then feel free to...
Children are resilient but also delicate - especially when it comes to car accidents. The reality is car seats and booster seats work. They save lives. Why are we blogging about this topic? Because we sell cars and September is Child Passenger Safety Month. Walker Chevrolet would like to take a moment to go over the three types of car seats and their uses.
1. Baby or Infant Car Seats
These car seats typically have a weight range between 22 and 35 pounds. The harness strap should be at or below the shoulders. Newborns and infants should have a 45 degree maximum recline. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions for specifics regarding each model.
2. Convertible Car Seat
Rear-facing models that offer a 35 to 40 lbs weight limit. Once a child reaches 40 pounds, some...
It's summer and it's hot out there, especially for your pets. If you're taking your pet on a road trip this summer, Walker Chevrolet would like to remind you of a few pet safety tips for the road.
1. Try to avoid leaving your pet in your car.
If you have to leave your pet in a car, don't do it for long. Cars can heat up quickly - especially for furry dogs and cats.
2. Bring water for your pet.
Pets get thirsty just like we do. Always bring a water dish with you; maybe even leave a backup in your car so you don't forget.
3. Pack food and treats.
Food nourishes your pet. Treats help distract him or her on the drive; provided that his possible.
4. Crack the window, don't roll it all the way down.
This suggestion is more of a precaution. Most pets won't try to jump...
It doesn't matter if you're an experienced hauler or a newbie to the trailering game; it's always good to keep in mind a few driving safety tips when pulling a trailer.
When pulling a trailer, your vehicle cannot make abrupt maneuvers. You should drive at moderate speeds because it will allow you to control the trailer. Swaying of the trailer will increase at higher speeds. Don't turn suddenly or turn corners tight. You want to make wide turns to give the trailer enough space to turn. Also, the weight of a trailer puts a lot of pressure on a vehicle's engine. With that in mind, always use the driving gear that the manufacturer recommends for towing.
When pulling a trailer, your vehicle is hauling a lot of extra weight and needs more space to...

If you own a truck, you know that it's quite an investment; trucks can be costly to purchase, operate and repair, but the payoff is that they can be used to complete tasks that would be impossible with a smaller vehicle. Chevy trucks are known for being dependable and long-lasting, but with any truck, you should still take measures to care for it. With winter over and summer months rapidly approaching, now is a great time to make post-cold weather repairs and conduct maintenance. Save on service costs and ensure you get the most out of your truck for years to come by following some of these simple tips:
Check the tires
Making sure that your tires are properly inflated will reduce your chances of getting a flat tire, but the right tire pressure will also let you maintain optimal...
Your lease experience will depend upon the type of lease you choose. There are two types of leases: Open-end leases and closed-end leases.
Closed leases are more popular and come with slightly higher monthly payments - these are the leases that let you walk away free from your car or truck when the lease ends. Drivers will have to pay for excess mileage and wear-and-tear fees but all other depreciation costs are losses of the leasing company, not you. This type of lease is beneficial for those who don't mind mileage limitations and don't foresee major wear-and-tear damages; for example those who foresee children spilling food and drink everywhere.
Open-end lease contracts require drivers to purchase their leased vehicle at the end of their contract period. This type of lease...
