A Conversion Van Experience Like No Other

When you are ready for a conversion van experience like no other, step up to the refined luxury and unparalleled detail of the Elite Edition line of conversion vans from Southern Comfort.  These vans have it all, from the eye-catching exteriors to the plush and immaculate interiors.

From your first look at this van, you know that it is something special. Everyone will want a second (and third) look when you drive by in one of these beauties featuring an impressive mesh grill in the front, sleek painted bumpers, vented side fenders, and 20 inch rims surrounded by top of the line Nitto tires. No detail is overlooked - even the windshield wipers and door handles are painted and designed to accentuate the gleaming exterior. Customers desiring an even higher level of customization can even upgrade the already impeccable exterior paint with a stripe or fade effect.

The inside of a Southern Comfort Elite Edition conversion van cradles you in luxury and convenience with stand out features like beautiful polished beech wood accents, plush and durable Berber carpeting, exquisite dual tone leather captain's chairs, privacy enhancing window shades and a fully powered sofa seat that can fold down to make a super convenient bed. Another highlight of the luxury interior is the huge Visio 27 inch HD TV which features a LED screen and is accompanied by a high powered Kicker sound system. Your Southern Comfort van can also be upgraded to include additional features like satellite television and wireless headphones.

GMC 101: What's in a Name?

It's time for a brief history lesson.

In 1912, three major truck builders, Randolph, Reliance and Rapid joined together to form GMC. Back then, the company's trucks were powered by gasoline and electricity, and all models were given numbers between one and 12, designating their carrying capacities in thousands of pounds.

But what's REALLY in a name? (At least when it comes to a GMC truck).

Modern truck labels continue to...

Buick's New Commitment to Safety

This year's Buick Enclave luxury crossover SUV, arriving in the fall, is the first of many indications to Buick's new commitment to safety. The two most recent models, the Buick Verano Turbo luxury sedan and the Encore luxury crossover represent the pinnacle of modern automobile safety systems. 

Standard passive safety features include body structures with more than 60 percent high-strength steel as well as 10 air bags situated around the body of each vehicle. While these are typical safety features designed to protect passengers, Buick is going further in developing safety systems that prevent crashes altogether, called active safety features.

The Verano Turbo luxury sedan will be updated later this summer with these active safety features which include technology that uses audio and visual warnings as well as automatic actions that dramatically increase the safety rating of your vehicle.

The first of these features is the Rear Vision Camera, allowing you to eliminate blind spots in the rear of your vehicle when backing up. The second and third features that come in an optional safety package also focus on improving drivers' situational awareness. Both the Side Blind Zone Alert and the Rear Cross Traffic Alert share radar sensors in the rear bumper that give visual and audible cues to the driver if needed when backing up or changing lanes...

Tip #3: Clean Air Ducts
Aim the nozzle from your air compressor at the walls of your car's air ducts. This will blast accumulated dirt and dust out, improving your car's smell. Replace or clean the cabin air filter as well.
