Making Your Vehicle Like-New

As the New Year approaches, many people set goals or resolutions to help better themselves. If you are at a loss to what goals you can set, consider some of these car care resolutions. Happy New Year from all of us at Bob Ross Buick GMC in Dayton, OH!

Clean It Up

If your car is always a mess, inside and out, make a goal to keep your car clean. Spend some time cleaning out the interior, throwing away trash, and getting rid of any junk. Vacuum the carpeting and clean up any stains or spills. Finally, give your car a thorough wash. Try to make do this car clean up once a month to make it like a new vehicle once again.

Catch Up on Maintenance

Somewhere in your car’s owner’s manual is a recommended service schedule. It lists how often you should have certain maintenance items done, like oil changes, tire rotations, engine tune-ups, and brake checks. If you have fallen behind, schedule a service appointment here at Bob Ross Buick GMC and we will help you get back on track. Then, set a goal to stick to the schedule.

Check Your Tires

Once a month, you should do a thorough inspection of your tires. This should include checking the tread depth, looking for signs of uneven wear, and checking the tire pressure.

Best Holiday Gifts for Car Fans

Holiday Gifts for Car Fans
The Holidays Are Here

Finding the perfect present for the auto enthusiast in your life is no easy task. Fortunately, cars aren’t going out of style any time soon, so there’s plenty of chances to find the “right” gift. Check out these great holiday gifts for car fans that will make the rest of 2018 an enjoyable one.

Gas Clutch Socks

Manual transmissions aren’t all too common in modern cars, but true car fans may find themselves behind the wheel at some point in their lives. Gas clutch socks offer a great way to show their enthusiasm about cars and remind new drivers which foot goes where. After all, no driver wants to hit both the clutch and the gas simultaneously!

Steering Wheel Cover

You can’t go wrong with getting a steering wheel cover for the car fan in your life. As a far as holiday gifts go, a steering wheel cover is a great general present of choice too. Now drivers can keep their hands warm in winter and cool in summer, all while maintaining a firm grip on the wheel!

Tool Set

Auto enthusiasts always want to work on cars, and they need a proper toolset to do so. A 200-piece mechanics tool set is the perfect holiday gift for car fans! This set features every tool that an enthusiast, or mechanic, could ever need for general car repair, maintenance, and restoration.

If you’re looking for something bigger to put under the tree, like an actual new or used car or an aftermarket part, come talk to us at Bob Ross Buick GMC in Dayton, OH.

Join Us For The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Dayton

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk

Nothing is as devastating as a loved one being diagnosed with a dangerous or terminal illness, and for too many and for too long, breast cancer has been one such diagnosis. This year, come out and join us at Bob Ross Buick GMC in the fight against breast cancer by attending American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Dayton, OH. The walk will take place on October 20th, 2018.

This is not the first time Bob Ross Buick GMC has fundraised and rallied support for the American Cancer Society.

Our team was the #1 fundraiser in 2017, and we currently sit in the top spot for 2018 as well.

Keeping a Clean Car for Peace of Mind

Keeping A Clean Car

We always think that keeping a clean car is important, yet life still seems to get in the way. On average, Americans spend more than an hour and a half in their cars every day. Take a big step towards organizing your life by sorting through your car. These simple tricks can help you get started on the right foot.

Keep a Plastic Bag in the Car

No one likes trash on the floor of their car. It gives off odors and is just a bad look, especially if you have a special someone riding in the car for a date. Save yourself the poor optics of a car littered with candy bar wrappers and soda bottles and take the easy step of keeping a plastic bag in the car to serve as a trash bag. When it reaches full capacity, simply tie it off and throw it away. Your car will thank you.

Quick Wipedown While Pumping Gas

It’s so easy to stare off into the distance and forget about everything while completing the mundane task of filling your car with gas. Turn your refueling into an efficient, productive experience by using the squeegees and soapy water offered at fuel pumps by almost all gas stations. One minute of wiping your windows and body of the car will remove the dirt, grime, and bird waste that can so quickly smear a vehicle.

If your vehicle needs more help than simple cosmetic fixes, contact the service department at Bob Ross Buick GMC In Dayton, OH for an appointment, and we would love to help you out today. Have a great day, and thank you for reading!
