If you’re driving a recent Buick model, you have probably heard of the MyBuick App. However, if you’re not familiar with this feature you may not know about all of the convenient features it offers. Here we’ll give you a brief explanation of the MyBuick App and what it does.

Remote Vehicle Control

When owners of compatible vehicles have downloaded the MyBuick App, they can use the app to control their Buick vehicle remotely. The app can be used to lock and unlock doors, or to start the engine.

Vehicle Information and Service Reminders

The MyBuick App is also a tool that owners can use to keep track of their Buick vehicle’s fuel and fluid levels, tire pressure, and service needs. Owners can check out all of this information from their phone, and can even use the app to schedule service at a dealership.

Vehicle Location

Owners can use the app to flash their lights and honk their horn remotely when they need help finding their Buick in a parking lot. The app also includes a vehicle locate function, and lets owners share the location with friends and family.

Smart Driver Function

The Smart Driver Function in the app is used to monitor driving habits, and will give owners advice on how to become a safer driver. This element of the app could also be used to receive discounts on car insurance.

What to Do If You’re Involved in An Accident

What To Do If You Are In An Accident

No matter how careful you are, there’s always a possibility of getting into an accident. If you’re involved in an accident, there are several steps you should always take to handle the situation.

Check on Passengers and Pedestrians

If you are OK to move, the first thing to do is check on the other drivers, passengers, and any pedestrians that were involved. Call an ambulance if there is an injury.

Move Out of Traffic

If there are no serious injuries, then everyone involved should move to a safe location away from traffic. If the vehicles are drivable, move them out of the way, too. But make sure to document the accident with photos before doing so.

Call the Police

Police should be called to any accident, even minor ones, so that the accident can be reported.

Exchange Information

All drivers should trade information, including insurance information, names, and contact information.

File an Insurance Claim

Call your insurance company as soon as possible to file a claim. The insurance representative will help you complete the steps to address any personal injuries or any vehicle repairs needed.

Get Your Vehicle Repaired

Once you have the financial support to repair your vehicle, bring it into George Gee Buick GMC. Our expert team will get your vehicle back in shape as soon as possible.

GMC Sierra MultiPro Tailgate System: Making Life Simpler

GMC Sierra MultiPro Tailgate System
GMC Sierra MultiPro Tailgate System

The GMC Sierra 1500 is well-equipped with intelligent features to make work easier than ever, including the next-generation MultiPro Tailgate system. This tailgate is more than it might seem, as it comes with a multi-purpose design to function in a variety of ways. In fact, a new ad for the GMC Sierra 1500 MultiPro Tailgate shows both passersby and tailgates “dropping their jaws” in astonishment at the new design.

According to GMC, there are seven smart ways to use the next-generation MultiPro Tailgate. It is essentially two tailgates in one, including a primary gate that is hinged at its base, as well as a smaller inner gate that’s hinged to the primary gate itself.

“We exhaustively test every tailgate on our trucks, but we went even further with MultiPro,” said Derek Patterson, an engineer on the GMC MultiPro design team. “All told, we wanted MultiPro to be as durable and professional grade as the Next Generation Sierra itself.”

The MultiPro gate can work as a primary gate like any other tailgate, but it has a few other functions. For instance, it can work as a gate load stop to prevent materials from sliding out even when the primary gate is down. The Easy Access configuration lets you access the bed more easily by lowering the inner gate, and a full-width step configuration lets you use the inner gate to step up into the bed.

There’s also an inner gate load stop so you can fit awkward cargo in the bed more easily while still keeping it secure, and an inner gate working surface gives you a virtual work bench at a convenient height. There’s even an available Kicker MultiPro Sound System.

Visit us at George Gee Buick GMC to learn more about the MultiPro Tailgate, available on the new 2019 GMC Sierra 1500.

Buick and GMC at the 2019 North American International Auto Show

NAIAS | Liberty Lake, WA

The 2019 North American International Auto Show took place in January from the 14th to the 27th in Detroit, where refreshed models, concept vehicles, and innovative new technologies across the entire auto industry were revealed for the first time.

As one of the biggest auto shows in the world, the NAIAS is the place to be for the latest cars, SUVs, and trucks, especially from GM brands like Buick and GMC. Neither Buick nor GMC released a new concept at the Detroit Auto Show, but they did show off the new versions of their popular lineups.

Buick showed off the ultra-luxurious Avenir line, which takes Buick’s premium vehicles and elevates them even further. The Enclave Avenir, Regal Avenir, and Lacrosse Avenir have a vehicle style for everyone while providing the latest features, unbeatable comfort, and smooth, powerful performance.

The GMC lineup was also presented at the Detroit Auto Show, though it’s rumored that GMC plans the debut the 2020 GMC Sierra HD Denali at the Chicago Auto Show in February.

GMC teased the all-new Sierra HD with a video released during the NAIAS, showing styling similar to the Sierra 1500, with the same platform and powertrains as the 2020 Silverado 1500. Sporting the exclusive MultiPro tailgate, the upcoming Sierra Denali HD promises state-of-the-art tech and performance.

Here at George Gee Buick GMC, we can’t wait to learn more about the upcoming lineup of Buick and GMC vehicles.

2019 Buick Regal Avenir Joins Buick’s Top-Tier Luxury Lineup

2019 Buick Regal Avenir

Since the introduction of the Buick Avenir trim level, Buick drivers have been excitedly embracing the new line of luxury models for the truly exceptional experience they offer. Buick drivers now have even more to be enthusiastic about, as the 2019 Buick Regal is getting an Avenir trim level. This is particularly good news for luxury drivers who want to enjoy all the benefits of the Avenir line but who prefer something smaller than the Enclave crossover or the full-size LaCrosse Sedan. The 2019 Regal TourX Wagon will not receive an Avenir trim this year.

 

Some of the most appealing features of the 2019 Regal Avenir include its nine-speed automatic transmission, 19-inch Pearl Nickel wheels, self-leveling and cornering headlamps, premium leather upholsterer, an advanced 8-inch infotainment touchscreen display, and a premium eight-speaker Bose audio system. Apart from these features, we also expect the 2019 Regal Avenir will come with distinctive badging and a three-dimensional mesh grille.

 

Another popular aspect of the Avenir models is the standard feature packages that improve every aspect of the driving experience. The 2019 Regal Avenir will come standard with the Buick Driver Confidence I Package, which includes four-way lumbar adjustment, heated outside mirrors, and an array of driver-assist features like Lane Change Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Rear Park Assist.

 

Keep a lookout for this latest Avenir model here at George Gee Buick GMC.

Across its impressive lineup of luxury models, Buick offers a host of standard and available safety features that elevate the driver’s experience behind the wheel. Here’s a glimpse at a few of Buick’s best safety features, available on vehicles today at George Gee Buick GMC:

Side Blind Zone Alert

It’s easy to start drifting while you’re behind the wheel, especially in the midst of an extended trip on the freeway. Lane Departure Warning from Buick alerts drivers when they start to leave their lane if their turn signal has not been activated. It even helps to smoothly guide your vehicle back into its proper lane position.

OnStar

OnStar has earned the trust of millions of driver across the United States. OnStar offers numerous emergency services, including Automatic Crash Response and Roadside Assistance, so you can embark on the open road with increased confidence for yourself and all your precious cargo.

Front Pedestrian Braking

Front Pedestrian Braking helps to protect yourself and others. The system alerts you to pedestrians ahead and, if an unavoidable collision is detected and the brakes have not already been initiated, will automatically trigger the brakes and send out both a visual and audible alert.
