The brand displays vehicles from its lineup each year and is excited to showcase the 2018 Equinox and 2018 Silverado 2500HD this season.

“Chevrolet is proud to help kick off the 2017 MLB season by continuing the tradition of showcasing our vehicles in the center-field fountain at the home of the Detroit Tigers,” said Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet Marketing. “This year, we have chosen to display the all-new Equinox and the HD Silverado because they are among the most versatile, durable and capable vehicles in the Chevrolet lineup and we know that they are tough enough to withstand the unpredictable Michigan weather.”

Your vehicle's alignment can negavtively impact its performance, while the suspension can affect its safety. View our spring alignment & suspension page for signs you may need service. 
  • Fluids: There are many different fluids throughout your car that lend to its performance and efficiency, but which ones are important to check this time of year? You may used up your windshield wiper fluid during winter, or haven't had an oil change in awhile. So explore our spring fluids maintenance page for a list of what fluids to have inspected or changed and why. 
  • Spring Cleaning: Yes... it's time for cleaning, and that includes your car!

Read through the tips on our spring car cleaning page and find a How-To on getting that nasty winter salt out of your carpets.
