If you tow frequently or needs to carry lots of equipment, you need a truck. If you have a busy family who likes the outdoors, you could also use a truck.

No matter the reason you want a truck, it is important that you choose the right truck for your needs. Here are a few pickup buying tips to get you started.

How Are You Going to Use the Truck?

If the truck is just going to be your family hauler, you probably won’t need the most powerful engine, largest truck bed, and most rugged features. However, you want to make sure you get a Crew Cab, so everyone has enough room.

If your truck will primarily be used for work, you want to make sure it has the right towing and handling capabilities.

What Options Do You Need?

An affordable truck can quickly become too expensive with the addition of attractive options and packages. While you might be tempted to add in all the bells and whistles, your checking account might not be too happy about that. Focus on the features you really need to make the truck work for you.

If you want a strong new truck or an affordable used truck, you can find both at Jim Causley Buick GMC Truck.

Basic Facts about the GM Employee Discount

If you work for General Motors (or are related to someone who is), the GM Employee Discount includes a range of perks and special deals that you won’t find elsewhere. There’s a GM Extended Family Card, a GM Accessories Employee Discount, a Certified Service Discount, and more. In short, you or your GM employee can find special deals for every step of the car-buying process. Whether you’re looking for small accessories or you’re buying a new GMC, using your employee discount will save you money.

According to GM, employees and eligible family members can use a GM Employee Discount to buy or lease an eligible, new Chevy, Buick, GMC, or Cadillac vehicle at a discounted price below the MSRP. The list below shows everyone who’s eligible:

  • Any active GM employee
  • Their spouse, children (and stepchildren), grandchildren, grandparents, parents, siblings, in-laws, aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.
  • Retired and former hourly or salaried GM employees
  • Widows and widowers of former GM employees
  • And employees, retirees, and surviving spouses of eligible divested companies and other organizations

Most new and used 2019 and 2018 GM cars, SUVs, trucks, and vans are eligible for discounts. In order to use the special discounts and rewards, you’ll need to obtain an authorization number and then take that to your local GM dealership. Simply select “GM Employee Discount” from the Programs menu on the GM Family First website, and select “Get Authorization Number.”
