Jim Stansbury - 2012 Chevy Equinox


Hi, this is Jim Stansbury from Hartland Automotive.  I've been driving the Chevy Equinox. First thing off the bat I got to tell you about is this backup camera that this car comes with and it seems weird or silly at first you think a backup camera on a car you know I've been backing up without a camera for years. Seeing is believing on this thing if put in reverse and there it is, and it's a wide angle lens. So I mean I'm seeing everything I'm seeing things in this backup camera that when I think I'm looking at my blind spot, I don't see and so you know you can see curbs.  If I had been looking out the back window, I'd be freaked out because I would have thought I hit the cars behind me.  However in reality It looks like there's probably a good foot out there yet. 

Driving the Chevy Equinox in Elkhart, IN has been a pretty cool experience. I was excited to get in to an SUV. The handling of this this car is great. Fantastic. The comfort the ride, smooth as can be. One of the other things I like too is that the seat that I'm sitting on goes vertical, so we can go up and down on this thing. You know, sometimes it feels like you're sitting low, you want to be boosted. I'm an average build kind of guy. But I still like to sit up a little bit higher. So it's nice that I have that option with this car, which by the way is rated for 32 miles to the gallon and I know sometimes you say well that's what they say but I was driving on Exit 92 from Elkhart to South Bend yesterday; took the drive reset up before I left came into South Bend doing 32.2 miles to the gallon.  When there was 67 miles left in this particular tank it let me know.  It also has your trip meters, speed navigation timer, and your average vehicle speed.  Instant fuel economy tells me the average fuel economy right now is right around that 32 mark, which is what the Chevy Equinox tells you to do here in the steering wheel again. You've got your cruise control settings as well.  You don't have to worry about messing around over here. You got your Bluetooth capabilities also. 

The Chevy Equinox has a lot of room to in the back.  After I got the car to put on the lot, I went outside got in the back seat, a lot of leg room a lot of head room back there too, which was kind of surprising. And a cool feature, I've never seen before; it has a sliding rear back seat.  Similar to your passenger seat or driver's seat slides forward and backward. The rear seat will do that too. 

There is also18 storage compartments here in the Chevy Equinox. And I thought. well, let's try to find them and somebody that would do a great job at that would be my almost three year old daughter. So we put her to the test started in the back, pointing out and finding the different storage compartments and I'm still not sure we found all of them.  Maybe I will have to call Chevy up and tell him I don't know but there's a lot of storage compartments in this vehicle. One of the cool things too on the Chevy Equinox it has a state of the art braking system. When you apply the brake, it breaks the car evenly so you're not doing that typical nosedive that you see with a lot of vehicles. Again, added safety, added comfort and a cool added feature. You know why not? When you go to stop, you don't want to do a typical nosedive. I was hitting the brake pretty hard and we're just level as can be. Chevy's always has safety in mind, six airbags along with traction control. What that means is that you know, when you're taken off in a slippery situation, you're not going to sit there at that stoplight or that stop sign at an intersection that's busy and sit there and spin  where everybody else is looking at you like when are you going to go? There's also stability control to this vehicle.  Before putting a car on the lot in Elkhart we always do the family test. It's my wife and two children. So it's my wife and two car seats essentially. We went for a great little drive yesterday and she was really impressed with the Chevy Equinox and and made a comment to her brother "it would be great to have one". 

The Chevy Equinox is going to be great for you. It's going to be great for your family and seeing is believing.  The best thing you can do is take a test drive get behind the wheel, see everything that I saw and experienced what I've been talking about. And to do that visit us anytime in Elkhart, IN on Cassopolis St.

Jim Stansbury - 2013 Chevrolet Camaro

5742266676 -

Hey guys, what's up? It's Brad from Elkhart, IN and I am here at Hartland Automotive for a very special review. What I want you to do right now is if you're a true car enthusiast, I want you to close your eyes.

I want you to close your eyes. I want you to take a few deep breaths and what I want you to remember is, what was your first real car that you wanted? That you went out and bought for yourself? Something that you know you dreamed about, and you made it happen? Well, guess what? I have a review today. Of my good buddy Jim who works here at Hartland Auto And Truck he just turned 48 years old. He made his dream come true. And he did it himself the good old-fashioned way with hard work. I have his dream car a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro SS. So like I said hopefully you close your eyes. You thought about that dream car. I remember back in 1985 You know; Firebirds were the big thing. And when I finally got my driver's license in 1992, I went out and bought myself a 1985 Pontiac Firebird all by myself. That was my first car, but we'll get back to that story and another time I want to focus on his dream car because it is something that's so special. You know, many people in the industry thought millennials did not care about cars. 

They thought that they would just you know ride buses or walk or ride a bicycle or a scooter whatever Guess what I'm very happy to say they do care about cars, and you'll see all the love that he's put into this 2013 Camaro so little history lesson. Camaro has been around since 1967. They were B. Ford came to the industry with the first pony car that 1965 Mustang. It was in 1964 when they released it by 1967. Chevy knew they needed something. And that's where they came out with the Camaro. Camaro was all about performance. Just like a lot of other performance cars in the 70s things fizzled out in the 80s is where we start to see things start to slowly take a turn for the better. The problem is by 2002 Once, speed was really picking up, Chevrolet decided to cancel the Camaro. It was mind blowing people around the world were like What the hell's going on. They said that there'd probably never be another Camaro. Well guess what I'm very happy to say 2010 It came back, and they did it in a way where they took that some old styling and they brought it into the 21st century and that's what we have with this 2013 Camaro SS let's go and look at the front. I really liked the front of that. 2010 2013 like we have here Camaro SS. I really liked the fog lights. I like the placement of the headlights and even the turn things it really harks back to those 1960s that late 1960 feel. You have the SS badge if you ever wonder what the SSD is and for no it doesn't mean super smart or super slick. It's super sport that is going to guarantee you that underneath that hood is a V engine pumping out plenty of power and torque. One thing I'm not a big fan of I wish they could have done something a little different is made this center scoop functional get some air going into that air box that had was a with a horsepower and really just hard back to that original performance. 

You know, it's not about faith things. It's about things that are functional, but I do like the lower grille area. It really has that late 60s Camaro feel, even though it's a car from 2013 and this is what he dreamed for any made it happen. And like I said, young people out there watching Radis rides, you too can make it happen. What you need is a plan if you have a goal, and you plan, you're good to go. If you don't plan a goal just becomes a dream and never happens. Let's go and look at the side. With 2013 They had these huge 20-inch wheels. very simplistic five-star design, but hey, it works. And this is something that Spencer wanted so I'm not going to sit here and knock the hell out of the car and say I don't like this. I don't like this. Am I a big fan of this? No, but it works. It's a 20-inch wheel. You got the Brembo four piston calipers going to give you some nice stopping power and I love the condition of the car. You know, he went out he wasn't going to be able to afford a brand new one, but he found a great use one that is in nice condition. I do like the Camaro badging on the side. One thing I would like to see is that red, white, and blue emblem that goes with that Camaro badging. that harks back to those early days. I think that would have been just a little bit extra nicer touch. I love this dark gray. What's cool is is that with this cloud cover, it just looks kind of flat. But in the sun, it really pops is some metallic in there. As we work our way back. 

There's probably the thing that most people talk about are the side windows and the back window. Not the easiest car to look at. But hey, it looks like the concept car that Chevrolet did and unveiled to the public in that mid 2000s. So, they really pulled it off, and we're able to get this through production. As we work our way to the back. Very, very nice. decklid spoiler it's body match colored. I do like that just enough of kick up. And then I do really like what they did for the taillights on the 2013 models. More so than on the newer ones, especially what's coming out for 2019 Because remember, there's going to be a light refresh for 2019 Very clean, very classy. You got your dual exhaust; you got this huge rear diffuser gives it a very aggressive look on the back. And that's what I think is one of the many things that Spencer loves about this car. He loves how aggressive it is from the front and the back. Let's go ahead and see one other thing that Spencer really loves that engine underneath the hood a check. All right guys, there we are underneath the hood of this Camaro SS there's that V eight 6.2 liter over 460 horsepower. Look at how clean this engine is. Like I said Spencer found a cream puff you can eat off this engine. That's how clean it is. When it comes to classic American Muscle, it's easy to get to the plugs, the wires. You know the biggest gripe of I'm going to say anything is this plastic cover. I do like it though the way it looks. I mean the silver really has a metal look to it. It's just you know; I think they could have done a little something with that intake. These cars could have such beautiful intake plenums like they did back in the 90s and looks like a work of art. But at the end of the day, it gets the job done. You're getting plenty of power going to those real wheels. And speaking of driving this car, let's go ahead and look at the interior because there's some really nice things happening in his dream car. 

Alright guys, I'm inside his dream car, his baby his 2013 come out as check out the door panels cool, and Chevrolet was doing with bring in some of the outside color that gray on the inside of the door panel. This does have the Boston premium sound system because this is a two ss so the way Chevrolet does their levels, so to speak of options you have one SS two ss is coming with all the bells and whistles. You have the navigation. You have the wonderful extra gauges that hark back to the 60s. He did go with an automatic transmission he wants consistency. He's going to be taking this car to the track to drag race it you want that consistent shift and like I've said before the automatic transmissions in today's cars are just amazing. Look at these seats. Tom was even saying this thing is that Queen puppet really is very nice light gray with the darker gray I like the SS and border free on the head rests here. It's time to show you right there that nice SS embroidery. I liked the perforated leather in the center and it's a good quality material very, very nicely done. You could see the auxiliary gauges down there with bolt meter you got oil temp, you have transmission temp ones the last time you've seen a transmission temp gauge on a car. I can't remember that. You see how they bring the gray into here and they also brought the two tones. I I noticed going to sound shocking I do like the inside of this car interior wise better than the new Ss especially the convertible that I drove in California. I really think that it's a nicer feeling here. 

Speaking of feel, why don't you come around and check out where you'll be sitting behind the wheel of this car. Alright guys, I'm behind the wheel of this 2013 Camaro SS. Very comfortable place to be stairwells a great size. It's got the SS logo down here. I do like the gauge cluster layout. It really harks back to that early 60s. You can see the tack meter as I step on the throttle here, I just like the font. I like the color I like the feel and I like the layout. Up top they have a wonderful frameless mirror that's auto self-dimming this has full navigation fully loaded to SS I love the Chevrolet down here on the sill. I think he really found the perfect car for himself and can you blame him for that hard work does pay off guys. I don't know about you. I'm ready to wrap this one up. Alright guys, it's been one hell of a day here. The storms about to come in. If you have not subscribed to radius right yet hit that button. I want to thank Spencer for letting me borrow his car. This is how we get it done. The storm is coming. I will see you all on the next ride. Check everything out.
