Convenience Comes Standard!

Convenience is something we all look for in a vehicle and now, Buick has taken this one step further with standard connectivity! The ability to stay connected, while exercising safety and following the rules of the road, has become a desired and sometimes costly feature in a vehicle. Well, we have exciting news to share with you, as Buick makes the announcement that all 2015 models will have standard hands-free connectivity with Apple Siri Eyes Free and text message alerts. Additionally, most 2015 models will also include a built-in Wi-Fi Hotspot, powered by OnStar with 4G LTE, a feature that will be standard next year on all 2016 models.


Using the Buick IntelliLink system, drivers are able to experience the convenience of a text message alert feature with a Bluetooth profile (M.A.P), which reads incoming texts through the vehicle’s speakers.  The Siri Eyes Free feature works with iPhone 4s or later and must operate with iOS 6 or later.  Whether you want to place a call, find directions, music, or hear and compose text messages, Siri is your go to vehicle companion for connectivity and peace of mind.

Available on the Buick LaCrosse, Verano, Regal and Encore for the 2015 model year, OnStar’s 4G LTE with built in Wi-Fi creates a mobile hub for passengers.  The hotspot is accessible whenever the vehicle is on or in accessory mode.  Owners are provided with a 3 Month/3GB data trial with the option to purchase additional data plans later.

Why You Should Consider Leasing…

Do you love the feeling of getting into a new car, experiencing new technology, knowing that you are in the safest of vehicles?  Then leasing might be right for you.  Unlike finance, where you pay for the entire value of the vehicle, leasing provides you with the option to only pay for a portion of the vehicle known as the residual value (value you expect to use over a set period of time), plus a borrowing charge and applicable taxes.  Leasing also provides you with flexibility, especially when it comes to the end of term process.  You, as the customer, are given the option to purchase and keep, purchase and sell, or drop off the keys and shop for a new vehicle.

There are many benefits to leasing that people are unaware of:

  • You only have to pay for the portion of the vehicle that you intend to use
  • You only have to pay tax on your monthly payments
  • Lease terms are shorter than typical finance terms, which allows you to drive a new vehicle more often
  • You don’t have a trade in obligation
  • With leasing you can drive upgraded models with more features for a lower monthly payment then if you were to finance.  Your payment is often lower because you are only paying for the depreciation of the vehicle over your lease term
  • If you lease, often times you can deduct payments from your taxes if you use your car for business more than 50% of the time – please see your accountant for details
  • Leasing often provides you with the option for better products and lower interest rates.
  • Peace of mind since most leases will fall within the factory warranty period

At Queenston, we provide you with both GM and in house lease programs to accomodate you, no matter your circumstance.  Combined with an award winning product line-up and outstanding GM program lease offers, there really is no better time to consider leasing your vehicle.

4G LTE Coming to a GM Vehicle Near You

Imagine getting into your vehicle, and having your connectivity transformed to a whole new level. That is where General Motors in partnership with OnStar and AT&T, are hoping to go by bringing 4G LTE to future GM vehicles. The speedy mobile data speed will be available in select 2015 models in the U.S and Canada.4G LTE

“We’re making a global commitment to embed 4G LTE mobile broadband across all of our vehicles,” Mary Chan, president of GM’s Global Connected Consumer, said in an interview. “This is the largest commercial deployment of 4G LTE services in the auto industry.”

GM is aiming to offer embedded connectivity in their vehicles, so drivers will not have to rely only on their mobile phones for connectedness.

LTE (long term evolution) is a high speed wireless technology that is a step above 3G. LTE allows users to download, stream and upload music and videos about 10 times faster than 3G. Built-in 4G LTE connections will allow a wider range of in-vehicle communications and entertainment capabilities such as in-car video streaming entertainment, real time updates and faster application downloads.

This advancement will undoubtedly help the mobile world connect to the automotive world in a way that will revolutionize how consumers use the internet.
