Website Help

  • A:

    There are numerous reasons for this. First, retail offers of products and services vary depending on geographic region in order to fulfill the differing needs of consumers across the country. By choosing a preferred dealer, the gm.ca Web site can display the offers applicable to a Web visitor's region. In some cases, gm.ca may simply request a postal code to access relevant information.

    Also, General Motors of Canada believes that enabling contact through our franchised dealer network can maximize customer satisfaction. The process of buying and owning a new or used vehicle can be very complex. GM dealers have experience in ordering or locating new and used vehicles, facilitating financing, discussing options, servicing vehicles, merchandising quality accessories, and assisting automotive consumers to comply with all local laws and requirements involved with owning and operating a motor vehicle. While the gm.ca Web site will continue to add content and applications to assist automotive consumers, involving our franchised distribution network will maximize consumer satisfaction.

    To locate your closest GM Canada dealer, simply click on the Locate a Dealer link found in the "site map" on the top of the gm.ca Web site page. Searching for a dealer can be performed in three ways:

    • by postal code
    • by city/town within a province, and
    • by a preferred dealer name.

    Simply input information and select "Search" to submit the request.

    In addition, searches may also be made by brand:
    • input the postal code or city/ town
    • select the desired brand from the drop down brand list (i.e. Chevrolet)
    • Click "Search"

    The results displayed will be only those dealers franchised for Chevrolet your selected brand, close to that postal code location. Also, if you are only looking for a Chevrolet dealer who offers a specific service (i.e. GM Goodwrench Service), complete the process above, then select the desired service from the Service drop down menu.

Safety

  • A:

    In a deployment event, the sensing system sends an electrical signal triggering a release of gas from the inflator. Gas from the inflator fills the airbag, causing the bag to break out of the cover. The inflator, the airbag, and related hardware are all part of the airbag module.

  • A:

    Frontal airbags are designed to inflate in moderate to severe frontal or near frontal crashes to help reduce the potential for severe injuries, mainly to the driver's or front outboard passenger's head and chest. However, they are only designed to inflate if the impact exceeds a predetermined deployment threshold. Deployment thresholds are used to predict how severe a crash is likely to be in time for the airbags to inflate and help restrain the occupants. Whether the frontal airbags will or should inflate is not based primarily on how fast the vehicle is travelling. It depends on what is hit, the direction of the impact, and how quickly the vehicle slows down.

    Frontal airbags may inflate at different crash speeds depending on whether the vehicle hits an object straight on or at an angle, and whether the object is fixed or moving, rigid or deformable, narrow or wide.

    Thresholds can also vary with specific vehicle design.

    Frontal airbags are not intended to inflate during vehicle rollovers, in rear impacts, or in many side impacts.

  • A:

    If the vehicle is equipped with seat-mounted side impact or roof-rail-mounted head curtain airbags, those will deploy in a side impact. If the vehicle is equipped with rollover-capable head curtain airbags, a rollover sensor will deploy the head curtain airbags in a rollover incident. The frontal airbags will not deploy in a side impact or rollover, 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.

  • A:

    There are no specific child restraints that GM recommends or endorses. GM's seats and safety belt systems are designed to accommodate child restraints. However, we cannot be certain that all child restraints will be compatible with GM vehicles. It is important to choose the right car seat for your child's age and weight. Also, you should ensure the car seat is installed correctly by having it checked at a local car seat clinic. If you do need to install the car seat on your own, consult both the car seat manual and your vehicle's Owner Manual.

Consumption and Alternative Fuel Technology

  • A:

    Your vehicle's fuel consumption may differ from published ratings, depending on how, where and when you drive. Several things can affect fuel use: your driving style and behaviour, vehicle acceleration and driving speed, overall age and operating condition of your vehicle, temperature, weather, traffic, road conditions, and drive systems and powered accessories (i.e. air conditioning) installed in your vehicle. There is also a work-in period for new vehicles to determine accurate fuel consumption. For more information on fuel consumption, click here.

    GM has a comprehensive strategy in place to increase fuel efficiency and reduce vehicle emissions. GM is currently improving the traditional internal combustion engine with advanced technologies that save fuel such as Direct Fuel Injection, Active Fuel Management®, six speed transmissions, and Variable Valve Timing.

    In 2011 GM announced the arrival of the Chevrolet Volt, an Electric Vehicle with Extended Range. The Chevrolet Volt is truly a breakthrough vehicle, delivering the benefits of electric driving without the range anxiety associated with pure electric vehicles. The Chevrolet Volt is an electric vehicle that can operate under a range of weather climates and driving conditions with little concern of being stranded by a depleted battery. For the first 40 to 80 km depending on driving conditions, the Chevrolet Volt can drive gas and tailpipe emissions free using a full charge of electricity stored in its 16-kWh lithium-ion battery. The Volt's total range is over 500km and is powered by electricity all the time. To learn more about the Volt, click here.
