Helpful Products to Keep Your Car Clean

Cleaning a Car | Garland, TX

Your car is an important part of your life. Unfortunately, there may be times when it doesn’t look its best. Show your car how much you love it by giving it a thorough cleaning. A clean car not only looks good, but it is worth more, too. Here are some simple products you can use to keep your car clean.

Seat gap filler

How often have you dropped your phone in that annoying space between the driver’s seat and the center console? Until car designers create an alternative, try out a unique seat gap filler to save your phone and prevent crumbs from collecting under your seat.

Back seat cover

If you have a dog or two who rides in your car with you, you likely have some dog hair floating around. A back seat cover can help keep your upholstery free from dog hair and muddy paws.

Car vacuum

Do you hate paying for car vacuums at the car wash? Save your quarters and buy a vacuum designed just to keep your car clean. Look for one with various attachments to reach between tight spaces and a HEPA filter to remove dust.

Leather cleaner

If you have leather upholstery, you need to take special care of it. Use a specially formulated leather cleaner to remove stains, dirt, and oil from your leather seats.

Make sure your car is running as well as it should with a maintenance check at Jupiter Chevrolet in Garland, Texas.

Chevy Traverse Ranked Among Best All-Wheel-Drive SUVs of 2021

2022 Chevrolet Traverse | Garland, TX

The availability of all-wheel drive is one of the reasons that SUVs are the most popular type of vehicle at the moment. But not all AWD systems are created equal, or SUVs that use them. According to U.S. News & World Report, a few stand out above the others — including the new Chevrolet Traverse, which it featured in its list of the 12 Best All-Wheel-Drive SUVs in 2021.

The midsize Chevy Traverse is a three-row SUV with room for up to eight people. Under the hood, it has a 310-horsepower V6 engine paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. On all but the base L trim, AWD is an available option, giving the vehicle enhanced traction when accelerating in low-grip conditions.

When AWD is equipped, the Traverse also comes with a Drive Mode Selector that lets the driver choose between FWD and AWD. This makes it possible to enjoy AWD capability when you need it while still getting the enhanced fuel economy of FWD when extra traction isn’t necessary. The AWD system also comes with an Off-Road setting.

According to U.S. News editor Jim Gorzelany, the Traverse’s suspension “delivers a pleasingly smooth ride over all but the most pockmarked pavement.” In other words, it’s a great SUV regardless of whether it has AWD or not…but it does have AWD if you want it.
