Three Buick Vehicles Win 5-Year Cost to Own Awards from KBB.com

The Buick brand has been proving its worth over and over again these last couple years. Most recently, three Buick vehicles won 5-Year Cost to Own Awards from KBB.com. These awards predict that these vehicles—the 2015 Enclave, Encore, and Verano—will have the lowest cost of ownership of any vehicle in their segment over the next five years.

The awards are a validation of the value and excellence of the Buick brand’s product line. The Buick Enclave boasts an especially strong résumé. Not only did it win a Cost to Own award, but it also recently completed a second consecutive record sales year. “The Enclave has also been a cornerstone of Buick’s product renaissance, which saw a second consecutive year of record global sales in 2014,” Duncan Aldred, Buick vice president, said.”

The Enclave’s sales will likely increase this year too, partly due to awards like the 5-Year Cost to Own. It’s the most affordable and excellent vehicle in the Luxury Full-Size SUV/Crossover segment. And remember—it’s just one of three different vehicles that won these great awards. Come see us here at Crawford Buick GMC to learn more.

Car Seat Safety Tips to Keep Your Children Safe

<a href="http://elpasobuickgmcdealer viagra pour homme prix.crawfordbuickgmc.com/car-seat-safety-tips/lifestyle_13/” rel=”attachment wp-att-478″>FamilyAt Crawford Buick GMC, we offer some of the safest vehicle options in the industry. Because the safety of you and your family is so important to us, we want to ensure that you are properly selecting and installing your child’s car seat. Here are some car seat safety tips that will ensure your car seat is installed correctly, keeping your children safe.

Choose the right car seat. The amount of car seat options you have are endless, so it’s important to do your research before you purchase one. There are many ratings out there that can help you choose the best seat possible. Also, keep in mind that age and size recommendations vary. If you have a five-year-old, you shouldn’t place them in a rear-facing car seat. Instead, follow this general guide to keep your child safe.

Install your car seat correctly. It is surprising how often car seats are installed improperly. When a car seat is installed incorrectly, this puts your child’s life in jeopardy. To ensure your vehicle is proper installed, make sure you read the seat’s instruction manual and the portion of your vehicle’s owner manual on car seat installation. Each car seat should be installed using your vehicle’s LATCH system, ensuring that your child’s seat won’t go flying if there’s an accident. Also, make sure your car seat is in the back seat. To double-check whether or not your car seat is installed properly, take it to a trained Child Passenger Safety Technician. You can find your local technician here.

Register your car seat. Registering your car seat is a great way to make sure it meets all of the Federal Safety Standards. Just like cars, car seats can also be recalled—by registering, you will receive a notification of any recalls for your safety seats.

Following these car seat safety tips will make sure that your children stay safe whenever they enter a car. Do you have any car seat safety tips you would like to share with Crawford Buick GMC? Share them with us below.
