Tips for Teen Drivers


Bay City, MICH.,- Is your teen driving by themselves now? Every parent is worried about putting their child behind the wheel alone. We found Things Teens Should Know About Cars and Driving over at edmunds.com. From traffic stops to road rage, read and pass this information along to your teen driver.

1. What to do when you're stopped by a police officer
Safely pull to the side of the road, turn off your car, roll down the window and keep your hands visible. Don't make any sudden moves or argue with the officer.

2. How to deal with a flat tire
Pull completely off the road, even if it means destroying the tire. Call roadside assistance and let that person change the tire. If you have a spare and know how to change the tire, make sure you are out of traffic and in plain sight of oncoming traffic before changing it yourself. Afterwards you can find Tire Discounts at Graff Bay City!

3. What to do when the "check engine" light comes on
If there is any change in the car's performance, any mechanical noises, smoke from the tailpipe or electrical smells, stop the car and call for assistance. If there are none of these symptoms, take the car to a dealer and let them diagnose the problem. However, if you just bought gas, the light might just be indicating that the gas cap is loose. Tighten the cap and continue driving. The light should go off on its own.

4. How to deal with a friend who is about to drive under the influence
Don't get in the car. Do anything not to drive with an intoxicated person, and that includes calling your parents for a lift or paying for a taxi. Your next move is to try to prevent your drunken friend from hurting themselves or someone else.

5. How to drive safely while talking on a cell phone
Most states ban all cell phone use by novice drivers, so be sure you know if these provisions apply where you live. If it's permissible to use a cell, always use a hands-free device so you can keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. Learn how to pair your phone with the car's Bluetoothsystem. Don't even think about texting while driving (no, not even at stoplights).

6. How to get an honest quote for an automotive repair
Search Edmunds.com's Car Maintenance Guide or the Web to get an estimate for how much the repair should cost. Search online for garages with high customer ratings and ask friends for recommended garages. Call the garage and ask for a ballpark estimate and let the garage know you are contacting other places for their best quote.

7. What to do after an auto accident
If the car is drivable and there are no serious injuries, turn on your flashers and pull safely out of traffic. Call the police to report the accident. Exchange insurance information with the other driver but refrain from discussing the accident and who is at fault. Make notes and use your cell phone's camera to take pictures of the cars involved. Graff Bay City's Collision Center will get your car running like new again!

8. How to drive in rain and snow
Reduce your speed and leave more room between your vehicle and those in front of you. Understand how to handle skids. If possible, practice reacting to skidding in safe conditions, such as a snow-covered empty parking lot. Understand that a car might hydroplane on a rain puddle on the road and learn how to react to driving with reduced traction and visibility.

9. How to avoid road rage situations
Understand the severe consequences to you, your car and your driving record when minor disagreements escalate to life-threatening situations. When someone offends you, take a deep breath and know that your anger will dissolve in minutes. Don't anger other drivers by cutting them off or tailgating. If you've inadvertently angered another driver, don't get drawn into interacting with them. Ignore them or, if necessary, change your route. Finally, repeat this phrase: It's just not worth it.

Tips For Extending Your Vehicle Life


BAY CITY Mich., - Are you interested in saving yourself time, money and trouble by learning how to extend the life of your vehicle?  If so then keep reading, because we have some tips that will do all of the above and make you a very happy car owner.

When you bring your vehicle into Graff Chevrolet Bay City we can certainly inspect your car for damage and make repairs, however, we want you to know how you could improve your vehicle’s life all on your own!

Tips For Extending Your Vehicle LifeDon’t Settle For Cheap Insurance
You may be saving some money now when you pay for cheap insurance but you certainly won’t be doing yourself any favors in the long run.  Always look for an insurer that will guarantee the work that they authorize and will pay for OEM parts.

Break Your Vehicle In
If you push your car too far in the beginning then you can cause some serious damage to it.  Just take it easy and give it some time to be broken-in, you’ll be glad you did!

Run Your Air Conditioning in Winter
Car Air ConditioningWe know that this isn’t something that you typically want to do especially when you’re stuck in the middle of a Michigan winter but it can really help your vehicle.  The cold air keeps seals in good shape and prevents the compressor’s moving parts from seizing up.

Fix Your Weather-Stripping
When you see rainwater or snow seeping into your car then it’s time to take a look at your weather-stripping.  Many times it’s an easy fix and you can use adhesives or foam rods.  If the problem is really bad then you can order new weather-stripping that fits your vehicle exactly.  Refrain from purchasing any generic products, they won’t last and will end up costing you more money than you need to spend.

Cracked Tail LightTape Your Cracked Tail light
You may not be alarmed that your tail lights or headlights have cracks in them but it can actually turn into a serious issue if you let it go.  Water can get inside of your lights and you’ll be wasting a lot of money to have the problem righted.  Well here’s a quick and easy fix that will keep your money in your pocket: use tape!  There is specially designed tape for this exact use that comes in red or clear that can set your mind at rest.

Rotate Your Tires
When you rotate your tires you not only are spreading the wear evenly but you’re also ensuring that you get the most out of your tires before you have to replace them.  Ideally this should be done every 6,000 to 7,500 miles.

What You Should NEVER Say To A Police Officer


What You Should NEVER Say To A Police Officer
Bay City, MICH. – It can be difficult to keep your temper under control when you’re pulled over by a cop and are running late for your flight or important business meeting, but it’s important that you don’t lose your head.  Police officers are humans too and like you they have a job to do, so we found out what you should NEVER say to a police officer.

#5. Any kind of argument whatsoever: It’s true that you may be pulled over at some point for something that you don’t feel was fair, but it is always best to keep calm and not antagonize the police officer.  Arguing will get you nowhere…unless you want to be stuck with an even bigger ticket…then you’ll definitely be getting somewhere, probably not where you wanted to be though.

#4. “I was in a hurry.”: The bottom line is that the police officer doesn’t really care whether or not you’re in a hurry.  The law is the law and being in a hurry isn't an excuse.  It’s better just to keep calm and follow the officer's instructions.

#3. “I pay your salary.”: Telling a police officer that you pay their salary is probably one of the worst ways to get out of a ticket anyone has ever thought of.  It’s true that they are public officials whose salaries depend on tax dollars but this doesn’t give you the right to act as though you somehow own them.  The officer will end up insulted which probably won't help your case.

Police Officer Writing A Ticket#2. “The car in front of me was going just as fast, why didn’t you pull them over?”: The answer to your whiny-sounding question will not be “oh you’re right it’s not fair that they got away with breaking the law and you didn’t, I won’t give you a ticket now”.  Police officers aren’t capable of catching every person who speeds (especially if there are several cars speeding at once).  Resist the urge to complain and you’ll keep more money in your pocket. 

#1. “I don’t know, how fast was I going?”: Playing dumb will only make your situation worse.  Telling a cop that you don’t know how fast you were going, says that you are not an attentive driver and that you therefore need an even more severe reminder about paying attention and following the law while driving.  They already know how fast you were going, lying won’t get you out of a ticket.

Remember that a little kindness goes a long way.  Your best option is to treat the officer politely and professionally.  Another thing to keep in mind is that just because you may have had one bad experience with a cop, it doesn’t mean that they are all bad.  So next time you get pulled over, think of these tips on what you should NEVER say to a police officer!
