Q7. What is the difference between all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive?

A vehicle equipped with all-wheel drive temporarily transfers power to all four driving wheels automatically when the need is sensed by the vehicle. A vehicle equipped with four-wheel drive (4x4) can transfer power from two wheels to all four wheels upon driver demand, usually by pushing a button or turning a switch.

Q9. Can I take my Chevrolet to any GM dealership for warranty repairs?

Yes, these repairs must be performed by an Authorized Chevrolet dealer. It's in your best interest to take your vehicle to a Chevrolet dealer for all repairs since they are the most knowledgeable about the particulars of your vehicle.


Q10. Whom do I contact if I have a concern regarding my vehicle?

Your satisfaction and goodwill are important to your dealer and to Chevrolet. Normally, any concerns with the sales transaction or the operation of your vehicle will be resolved by your dealer's sales or service departments. The first step is to discuss your concern with a member of dealership management. Normally, concerns can be quickly resolved at that level. To locate a Chevrolet dealer, please contact Chevrolet Dealer Locator or call Chevrolet Assistance Centre: 1800 208 8080


Q11. What type of oil should I use in my Chevrolet vehicle?

There are many variables that determine the type of oil and how often an oil change is needed (climate, drive time, highway or city driving, etc.). You can find details specific to your vehicle by looking in your Owner's Manual under "Oil, Engine."


Q12. What makes an air bag inflate?

In a frontal or near-frontal impact of sufficient severity, the air bag sensing system detects that the vehicle is suddenly stopping as a result of a crash. The sensing system triggers a release of inflation gas. This gas inflates the air bag. The inflator, air bag, and related hardware are all part of the air bag module packed inside the steering wheel for the driver air bag and in the instrument panel for the right front passenger air bag.


Q13. When should an air bag inflate?

The air bag is designed to inflate in moderate to severe frontal or near-frontal crashes. The air bag will inflate only if the impact speed is above the system's designed "threshold level." If your vehicle goes straight into a wall that doesn't move or deform, the threshold level is about 14 to 18 mph (23 to 29 km/h). The threshold level can vary, however, with specific vehicle design, so that it can be somewhat above or below this range. If your vehicle strikes something that will move or deform, such as a parked car, the threshold level will be higher. Inflation is determined by the angle of the impact and the vehicle's deceleration.


Q14. Will a side or rear impact or rollover cause the air bag to deploy?

If the vehicle is equipped with seat mounted side impact or roof rail mounted head curtain air bags, those will deploy in a side impact. If the vehicle is equipped with a roll over capable head curtain air bags, a roll over sensor will deploy the head curtain air bags in a roll over incident. The frontal air bags will not deploy in a side impact or roll over, unless there is also a front or front-corner impact of sufficient severity to trigger the frontal airbags. The airbags will not deploy in a rear impact.


Q15. Is it still necessary to wear a safety belt with the Air Bag?

Yes! The air bag supplements the protection provided by the shoulder belts. Remember, the air bag is designed to inflate in moderate-to-severe frontal and near-frontal crashes. Safety belts can provide protection in impacts other than frontal and near-frontal collisions.


Q16. What kind of child-safety seats should I use in my Chevrolet vehicle?

There are no specific child restraints that Chevrolet recommends or endorses, but Chevrolet's seats and safety belt systems have been designed to accommodate child restraints. However, we cannot be certain that all child restraints will be compatible with Chevrolet vehicles.


Q17. Is Chevrolet part of General Motors?

Chevrolet is a division of General Motors.


Q18. I would like Chevrolet to grant me permission to use an image from the site and let me link from my site to Chevrolet. What should I do?

Unfortunately, Chevrolet cannot allow images from the Chevrolet site to be posted on other sites. Feel free to link the Chevrolet site to your site.


Q19. My dealer closed. Can I go to a local dealer that is right around the corner for warranty service?

For warranty repairs that don't create a significant inconvenience (i.e., the vehicle is drivable and does not pose a safety risk), customers need to take their vehicle to a dealership that currently sells and services their brand. If the customer believes that the issue they are facing does create a significant inconvenience, they can take their vehicle to any Chevrolet dealership for warranty repairs. In these cases, the Chevrolet dealership must determine if it has the training and tools necessary to perform a warranty repair on another vehicle make.


Q20. How do I receive an electronic vehicle brochure?

Q21. For exchange purposes how is the value of my Chevrolet vehicle determined/evaluated?
