Baton Rouge has been hit with heavy rains and widespread flooding, and we want you to be equipped with how to handle a flooded vehicle. Gerry Lane Chevrolet has compiled a list of what to do if your car, truck or SUV was affected by a flash flood or high water.
Here are some steps you should take:
1) DO NOT start your vehicle! Attempting to crank it will only cause further damage if the engine has been flooded. Just open the vehicle up and leave the windows down to let it dry it out.
2) Call your insurance agent/company and start the claims process. You can expect to receive full NADA retail value for your vehicle plus compensation for tax, title, and license if it's deemed a total loss.
3) Do not tow your vehicle to the dealership! Normally, we'd love a visit from you, but please call you...

It's summer. Warm weather is upon us, drawing us outside to play and explore. More cars, motorcycles, mopeds and bikes fill the road; more people fill the sidewalks, parks and beaches. While many of us work and play during all seasons, summer commands the biggest number of fans. With the summer rays coming in strong and vacations being booked, Gerry Lane Chevrolet would like to touch on three summer driving tips to keep in mind.
#1 Check Your A/C
A/C helps everyone keep their cool in the summer, so it's good practice to get the A/C unit in your vehicle checked before a long road trip. If you notice any odd fan noises or you notice it just isn't blowing out as cold of air as it used to, get it checked.
#2 Check Your Tires
Worn tires can blow out in the summer. The heat of summer causes the ...

For the month of March, we're sharing stories of Irish luck or coincidence - however you wish to justify life's crazy moments. The below story came from an employee at Gerry Lane Chevrolet. The events within the story are true but a few exaggerations were added for dramatic effect.
It was your typical rental car - washed exterior with a cleaner-scented interior. An old pine-scented air freshener dangled from the rearview mirror as the driver focused on the traffic ahead; she was confident she would reach the Dallas airport in time.
The highway was congested but with fast moving traffic. No horns. Only the sound of passing cars permeated through the rental car's exterior shell; the highway noise blended with top country hits as the driver watched the lane to the left of her.
