The environment and your commute:

Can't we all just get along?

Making a difference in our environment is as simple as driving a more fuel-efficient vehicle. That's why Chevy currently offers seven models with an EPA estimated 30 MPG highway or better.(1) Aveo Sedan, Aveo5, Cobalt, Malibu Hybrid, and select models of Malibu, HHR, and HHR Panel all fall into the 30 MPG or better club.

But it's not just about cars. Chevy Silverado offers the best V8 fuel economy of any full-size pickup,(2) and the full-size Tahoe SUV delivers best-in-class fuel
economy.(3) New technology like Chevy's Active Fuel ManagementTM has played a role in achieving greater fuel economy. Active Fuel ManagemenTM deactivates half the engine cylinders when they are not needed and seamlessly reactivates them when you need the extra power.

And there's more! Every 2008 Chevy car, half-ton truck and SUV is equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitor that automatically alerts you when your tire pressure is low. Properly inflated tires can improve gas mileage by up to 3%.(4) Seems small, but if everyone in the U.S. had properly inflated tires, we could save millions of gallons of gas each year.

Pictures from the 2008 Coastal Carolina Airshow - April 19th & 20th, Wilmington NC

Chevrolet were a major sponsor this year providing over 100 vehicles, 70 of which were the brand new 08 Malibu. The airshow attracted thousands of spectators on both days for their chance to watch the main attraction - The Tunderbirds. Also in attendance was the Golden Knights, The Aeroshell North American Team, F-15 Strike Eagle Demo Team and much more!

Mr. Hamm;

Thank You, and the Dealership, for your generosity in providing a Malibu for the Teacher of the month at our Local High Schools. It is a much appreciated tangible complement to the honor of being selected by our peers.

In addition to the use of the Malibu, the staff was beyond professional. In each of my interactions I was treated as an honored guest at your dealership. I primarily worked with Mark Thornton and Gary Hamilton, each of whom went beyond the call of duty. I would also like for you to know, those staff members with whom I interacted only peripherally were professional and courteous to the highest level. This includes those who greeted me upon arrival, to the switchboard, and those who assisted me in locating either Mark or Gary.

The Malibu exceeded my expectations. The fuel economy was very nice. In addition my wife, who has both an education and a working background in engineering, complimented multiple times to family and friends on the positive "fit and feel".

I was most impressed by the comfort on a long drive. The Friday prior to returning the Malibu we drove over 650 miles, returning home from vacation. While I am bigger than average, over 6ft and 320 lbs, I had no soreness or stiffness and less than expected travel weariness from the long trip.

This gracious award is much appreciated.

Thanks Again!
