It’s common knowledge that responsible drivers with safe driving habits are often eligible for insurance discounts. However, sometimes monitoring your driving habits for insurance purposes can be a hassle. The myBuick app upgrade is changing that. Not only will the app monitor driving habits and provide drivers with available insurance discounts, but it will also alert you about specific poor driving habits and offer tips for improving your driving tendencies.
Buick’s web-based Smart Driver service launched back in 2016, which used OnStar diagnostics to give drivers insight into their driving. It also allows users of the Smart Driver service to sign up for insurance discounts while keeping their information private. The Smart Driver services have now been integrated into the myBuick app to provide users with even more convenience and accessibility.
Regular reports from the myBuick app will inform drivers of their gas mileage, how often they make hard brakes or accelerate quickly, the frequency of high-speed or nighttime drives, and total miles they’ve driven. In addition to a Smart Driver score that rates safe driving habits, it will also provide tips for improving that score. As more drivers get access to the myBuick app upgrade, Buick expects the current number of Insurance Discounts Eligibility program members (approximately 100,000) to increase.
Besides pursuing safe driving habits, you can also choose a safe vehicle to enhance your protection on the road. Stop by Richard Karr Buick GMC to take one of our reliable models for a test drive.
