Let’s PAWS For A While and Help Our Local Animal Shelter!

Waterville Humane Society Logo

Central Maine Motors believes in helping all Waterville community members, including the furry ones. Join us next month as we raise funds and pet supplies to donate to the Waterville Humane Society. Together, we can aid one of our community’s most selfless organizations.

The Waterville Humane Society is more than an animal shelter. It’s an advocate for the humane treatment of all animals. In addition to sheltering animals until they find permanent homes, the Humane Society makes it their mission to educate the community about responsible pet ownership. We invite you to stop into any of our three Central Maine Motors locations this March to help this notable pillar of our community.

All three Central Maine Motors locations will be collecting food as well as pet supplies throughout March. Check out the Waterville Humane Society’s Wish List to find their most needed items. Our hope is to fill a truck at each location with the supplies. In addition, we will host book sales at each location to raise funds.

To learn more about the Waterville Humane Society, please visit their website. We hope you take a minute to “paws” and help this incredible cause. See you next month!

The judges have voted, the results have been tallied and a winner has been chosen. The Midwest Automotive Media Association’s Family Vehicle of the Year is the 2015 Chrysler 200! With its impressive fuel economy, array of safety and security features and enticing starting MSRP, it’s a compelling vehicle and a great choice for burgeoning families.

The Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA) is a nonprofit organization made up of over 200 automotive-industry journalists and public-relations professionals. The group created the Family Vehicle of the Year award to aid car shoppers in picking out a safe, reliable and affordable vehicle for their families.

To qualify for the family vehicle award, participating automobiles had to be four-door models and have a starting U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of less than $50,000. They also needed to have appeared at one of MAMA’s yearly rallies and be brand new or noticeably upgraded within a year of the 2014 Spring Rally. All of the vehicles up for award consideration were voted on by 99 journalists.

The 2015 Chrysler 200 received 79 points from judges, earning praise for its subtle elegance, cutting-edge features and wealth of security technologies. With the most available safety features in the entire mid-size sedan segment, any parent with tots in tow will feel comfortable and protected in the new Chrysler 200. On top of that, the sedan sports one of two powerful engines and returns up to 36 highway mpg — perfect for long road trips and visits to in-laws. The 200 is certainly easy on the eyes, too!

Want a new Chrysler 200 of your very own? Head on down to our Waterville, ME Chrysler dealership today and you can make it happen!

There is sure to be so much to see, hear, do and discuss, and all the automakers take the opportunity to display their best and brightest. This time, it was Buick who made the biggest splash.

With its long, continuous hood, tapered back end, alluring paintjob and sculpted lines, it looked like no other car at the show and it demanded attention. The cabin is wavy, open and extraordinarily attractive, offering incredible comfort and personal space alongside a true sense of serenity. Anyone driving this car would feel like a million bucks at all times!

They credited the Avenir with Innovative Use of Color, Graphics and Materials, highlighting its “attention to detail…the way its materials worked together…its understated elegance which was true to the brand.” You only need to take one look at the interior to see that much is true.
