New Owners' Clinic - Spring 2017

On April 13, Knoepfler Chevrolet held a New Owners' Clinic - "What You 'Auto' Know." At this event, customers who purchased a new vehicle from Knoepfler Chevrolet in the last 6 months are invited back to the dealership to learns the ins and outs of their vehicle and their dealership.

On the day that a customer picks up their new vehicle, they receive a TON of information regarding features of the vehicle, benefits of OnStar, how to pair their phone, service maintenance schedule and much more. Because so much information is given, a lot of it can be easily forgotten. Knoepfler Chevrolet took this as an opportunity to provide customers with an event to review some of these features. 


At the New Owners' Clinic, guests learn about the other departments, such as how to schedule an appointment with the Service Department, the services the Collision Center offers and the importance of GM parts. They enjoy a gift for attending, light appetizers and a chance to win door prizes. 

One of the highlights of the event is a tour the dealership. Customers receive a behind the scenes look of the facility including a walk through the Parts Department, Collision Center and Service Center. 


At the end of the event, features of the new vehicles are discussed. However, usually each customer has a different question such as how to pair their phone, what a certain button does in their Chevrolet or how to download the Chevrolet MyLink app. Therefore, customers are paired up with sales associates who can sit with them in their vehicle and review all of the features and answer questions.


The new Chevrolet models have amazing capabilities and the latest technology, and the staff at Knoepfler Chevrolet wants to make sure our customers are taking advantage of that. The New Owners' Clinic is a fun way to review their new vehicle and inform them on what other services Knoepfler Chevrolet has to offer.

Knoepfler Chevrolet Gets Involved in Downtown Sioux City

Ben Knoepfler, General Manager at Knoepfler Chevrolet returned to Sioux City from Minneapolis to take over for his father Charlie nine years ago. Upon his return, Ben knew he wanted to get involved in the Sioux City community.

As Ben currently works through the process of taking over the dealership for his father per GM standards, he is also active with Downtown Partners. This organization is an advocate group for downtown Sioux City that is charged with economic development, community living and growth of the downtown area.

The boundary line for downtown runs east and west from Wesley Pkwy to Floyd Blvd and north and south from 8th St. to the riverfront. Downtown Partners operating budget is collected from the businesses that sit within the boundary line through a percent of property tax.

Because Knoepfler Chevrolet is one of the multiple businesses in the downtown boundary they have the option to be active with Downtown Partners. From a pure business standpoint Ben Knoepfler is active with Downtown Partners in order to increase traffic downtown, give downtown more exposure, and by keeping people in the downtown area businesses have more immediate customers. This organization strengthens Sioux City as a whole and provides a strong and vibrant community for its residents.

Currently Downtown Partners is working on gathering data for vacancies within the boundary and on what vacancies can be developed. The organization is talking with residents downtown, improving signage, and creating a more global environment. In order to ensure downtown is seen as a part of the Sioux City community overall, Downtown Partners also reaches out to other organizations in the area.


For Ben, Downtown Partners provides an avenue for contacts regarding city business. It provides him connections with city council and allows him the opportunity to get to know the businesses that surround Knoepfler Chevrolet. He enjoys seeing the quality of life improve downtown. Ben said, “It’s really neat to have a voice in what is going on around you and Downtown Partners has been that voice for me.” He looks at this opportunity as “nibbles of work”. Ben believes it takes a nibble here and a nibble there in order to create the “big bite.”

Overall, working with Downtown Partners makes business easier for Knoepfler Chevrolet and being a part of the solutions is a gratifying experience.

7 Steps to Take If You Get In a Car Accident

We all hope that it won't happen - the unfortunate moment when you back into a vehicle or when an intersecting vehicle runs a red light right into your prized vehicle. For many, some sort of fender bender will happen at least once. The Knoepfler Chevrolet Collision Center offers some tips on what to do if you get in a car accident.
1. Remain calm. Getting in an accident no matter how big or small can be a scary situation. Take a deep breath and follow the rest of these steps to get everything handled properly.

2. Be safe. Depending on where the accident happened, it may be unsafe for you to be in or near your vehicle. If it was a minor accident, you should be able to move your vehicle off the side of the road. If you are unable to move your vehicle, leave your vehicle and go to a safe spot off the road. Check for injuries for your passengers, the passengers of the other involved vehicle(s) and yourself. If there are serious injuries, call 911.

3. Call police. After explaining the accident to the police over the phone, they may or may not choose to send someone over. It is always wise to call so they are aware of the situation and can come to direct traffic if your vehicles are blocking the road. If they do not come, you may be asked to file a police report regarding the accident.

4. Exchange Info. Be sure to get the following information from the involved parties: Name, Address, Phone, Vehicle's Make, Model & Year, License Plate #, Insurance Company, Insurance Policy Number. Do not agree if the other party suggests to keep this accident from the insurance companies. It is better to get the insurance companies involved so that the situation and damages are handled properly. Also, your Social Security Number is not needed to file an insurance claim, so if you are asked to provide that politely tell them it is unnecessary.

5. Document the accident. Take lots of pictures of the accident and the damage. This will help if any issues arise. Also take notes of the location, date and time of accident. If there are witnesses, be sure to collect their contact information.

6. Call Insurance Company. Your insurance company will inform you on what will be covered and the steps moving forward. Some insurance companies may want you to visit their drive-in claims center before having your car repaired. You can do this, or you may leave your car at the Knoepfler Chevrolet Collision Center and ask that the insurance company inspect the car there.

7. Take a Sigh of Relief. At Knoepfler Chevrolet, the body shop staff will work with your insurance company and take care of your vehicle needs. You are welcome to take advantage of the free to and from shuttle service. If available, they will even provide a loaner vehicle to use until your vehicle is fixed up.
