Officers Peter Capotosta and Darrell Brown were also there to talk about their special Police dogs. They have worked together on with the Police dogs for about 20 years on the force, and even went to the Police Academy together. A few years ago, Scott McCorkle sponsored their current bomb dog. They named the dog Liberty in his company’s honor, and she is a very impressive German Shepherd, indeed. I know I wouldn’t want to get on her bad side!

Pet owners also need to restrain pets with safety harnesses to keep them from being harmed as easily. Sudden stops and especially vehicle accidents can kill your pet too. Harnesses can be used to restrain them but not make them uncomfortable. Make sure that you find a pet safety harness that is approved for vehicle use. You don’t want your special pal to be hurt or killed. Please take this advice!

Many impressive vehicles can found at any of the Charlotte, Matthews or Monroe, Scott McCorkle’s Liberty Buick GMC Trucks locations. For more information, visit www.clickliberty.com, or call us at 888-306-1908.

    2011 Japan Earthquake to Increase GMC Sierra Hybrid Truck Sales in Charlotte NC?

    Research performed by staff writer for Liberty Buick GMC Trucks demonstrates that the powerful earthquake in Japan may cause waves of business for the U.S. automotive industry in Charlotte, Matthews and Monroe, NC!

    The combination the 2011 Tsunami disaster, in addition to the Libyan fuel crisis, may affect the availability of many economy cars. Fortunately, this should not affect the American automotive industry as heavily. Popular hybrid vehicles, such as the GMC Sierra 1500, Yukon and Denali Hybrid pickup trucks and sports utility vehicles, will not suffer a major manufacturing slow down due the disturbing natural events.

    Shockwaves from Japan’s most powerful earthquake in history may be felt in the auto industry as far away as Charlotte, Lake Norman, Monroe and Matthews, NC. Yet another great reason to buy a GMS Sierra 1500 Hybrid Truck in Charlotte, NC!

    According to news sources, “the most powerful earthquake to hit Japan in at least 100 years unleashed walls of water Friday.” The epicenter was located at a mere 370 kilometers (230 miles) away from Tokyo, Japan.

    The Japanese auto industry has been significantly impacted by Japan’s a catastrophic tsunami and multiple aftershocks. The physical damage caused by the horrific natural disaster has forced one of Japan’s major auto parts suppliers to shut down. This in turn, has forced most of the country’s top automakers to halt production for at least the next few days, according to a recent news article.

    Should this shut down last for more than a few weeks, it could be devastating for some of the affected automotive manufacturing companies, according to Paul Taylor, chief economist for the National Automobile Dealers Association. Many of Japanese economy and subcompact vehicles could suffer quickly, because many of them are manufactured in Japan.

    The GMC Sierra Hybrid has been shown to have the “best-in-class” fuel economy. This amazing heavy-duty utility vehicle can even operate up to 30 miles per hour in electric-only mode. It even has a 40% improvement in city fuel economy when compared to non-hybrid models. It manages to do all of this and still use its powerful 6.0L V8 engine for any towing and hauling capabilities expected from a full-size GMC pickup.

    These impressive trucks may be found at any of the Charlotte, Matthews or Monroe Liberty Buick GMC dealer locations. For more information on the new GMC Sierra 1500, Yukon & Denali Hybrids, visit www.clickliberty.com or call 888-306-1908.
