Mirak Chevrolet is pleased to announce participation in the GM/Chevrolet Lease Pull Ahead Program in January, 2014.
This is a great program that will allow Boston Area customers who currently have a Chevrolet, Buick or GMC lease to save quite a bit and upgrade to a new model. (With no added expense- just savings.)
(To give you an idea of how it works- we just had a customer get out of their current lease three months early while keeping their payments the same, without any money down.)
We’re enthusiastic that this program will help Boston Area Chevrolet lease customers save a lot of money while upgrading early.
Chevrolet Cruze Diesel – Boston – We Think it’s One of the Best Cars Around, and now USA Today Agrees
Ever since the new Chevrolet Cruze Diesel Debuted in 2013, we have known it was a winner. (It’s the only non-hybrid car available today that gets such high gas mileage- and it’s a blast to drive.) And now USA Today agrees, having just voted it “One of the Best Cars from 2013”.
The call it “Best rookie”, and go on to say it….. “delivers the fuel-saving goods on the highway.”
“The low-speed torque that’s inherent in a diesel is well-suited to much U.S. driving, and can make the daily slog a bit more exciting. In fact, the diesel’s the quickest Cruze, Chevy says, clipping off the 0-to-60 dash notably faster than the gasoline models.
Plus, there’s nothing bad about it. Not sluggish. Doesn’t stink. Isn’t noisy.”
Who are we to disagree? 🙂

Cruze sales for the year registered at 248,224 units country-wide, a 10,466-unit increase from 2012 sales. 2013 ranks as the highest sales year ever for the car.
The Cruze also remained Chevrolet’s second-best selling model, trailing only the Silverado pickup, which moved 480,418 units in 2013. (The Silverado is poised, along with the GMC Sierra, to battle the new Ford F150 pickup in 2014 for the title of Number One Seller in America.)
In a statement, GM touted a successful overall year for both the company and the industry as a whole. General Motors delivered nearly 2.8 million vehicles in 2013. Retail sales increased 11 percent, and total sales increased at a rate of 7 percent compared to 2012.
“2013 was the year that GM and the auto industry put the last traces of the recession in the rearview mirror, so now we can devote our full attention to the things that matter most to customers: compelling design, world-class quality and delivering the best ownership experience in the business,” Kurt McNeil vice president of U.S. sales operations, said in the press release..
GM seized the opportunity to rebrand itself after the recession, offering new models and making its vehicles competitive moving into the future, said Eric Lyman of the market tracker TrueCar.com. As for the Cruze, GM has positioned the compact car well to compete in one of the industry’s most-competitive segments, Lyman said.
When production was down, he said, the company took advantage of incentives to “move the metal,” and the decision has paid off in a big way.
