In January, GM Fleet and Commercial launched the Business Choice Program for small businesses, an industry-first two-year, 30,000-mile business maintenance plan, in addition to a cash allowance for vehicle accessories or upfits. The maintenance plan covers lube, oil and filter changes, tire rotation, and a 27-point inspection. Eligible vehicles include cargo, passenger and cutaway vans, chassis cabs, 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups and the Chevrolet Avalanche.
