Receiving “Standout Choice” in the subcompact segment, the Fit received a top rating of “Good” in four IIHS crash test modes as well as an “Acceptable” score in the IIHS small overlap frontal crash test.

Valet Parking Is That Much Better With The 2015 Corvette…

Just when you thought you couldn’t fall in love with the Corvette anymore, GM announces the Corvette Valet Mode. This new system takes security features for your car one step further. No longer having to worry about handing over the keys to your car, this industry-exclusive system allows you to lock interior storage, disable your infotainment system, and record video, audio and vehicle information when you set your new Corvette into “Valet Mode”.

The introduction of the Performance Data Recorder will provide owners with added peace of mind when handing over their keys. Initially designed to allow race drivers to record their laps and improve driving skills, all Corvette owners can now activate this feature through their settings menu using a unique four digit code. Data including: speed, engine RPM, gear position and g-force can be viewed instantly on the Corvette’s eight-inch touchscreen when the vehicle is in park.


Valet Mode with Performance Data Recorder will be made available on all 2015 Corvette models. If you would like further information on this feature, or if you would like to inquire about the 2015 Corvette, please contact us at Queenston on Centennial or Queenston on the Mountain.

Queenston ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Presumably most of you have heard about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but a lot of you probably don’t know how or why it was started.  Pete Frates, a former baseball captain for Boston College was diagnosed with ALS at the age of 27.  Since his diagnosis in 2011, Pete has made it his goal to focus more attention on the disease, to make a difference and have his fight matter.  This unprecedented and viral fundraising effort all started when a group of Pete Frates friends invited him to take on the now infamous “Ice Bucket Challenge”.  When Pete posted his own video challenging others he knew to participate, it went viral.  Since then, everyone from leaders of state, celebrities, athletes, colleagues, neighbours and friends have taken this challenge to help raise money for a horrific and debilitating disease called Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.  Please see Pete’s Challenge below:

Through the use of social media networks, the Ice Bucket Challenge encourages friends to challenge each other to either brave a bucket of ice-filled water, and donate $10 to ALS research, or donate $100 to ALS research if they choose to forgo the icy water.

Today, one of our own accepts the Ice Bucket Challenge.  Thus, we challenge you, our customers, colleagues and friends to participate and donate to the ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE! http://www.ALS.CA/ICEBUCKETCHALLENGE



Please help us raise money for ALS!  Don’t forget to tag #IceBucketChallenge #ALSICEBUCKETCHALLENGE #StrikeOutAls
