Take a minute and think about your car. Mine is a nice little mini van with over a hundred thousand miles on it, a layer of melted crayons in the cup holders and a few lost toys under the seats. I know it’s no Cadillac, but it’s mine, it’s paid for and it’s a vital part of our life.
I don’t really think any of us can live without our cars in today’s world. The grocery store is 5 miles + away, church is a 25 minute drive, our parents live 3+ hours away… honestly the thought of not being able to leave the house to just get to the park makes me jittery.
Now to your car. When was the last time it got a good tune up? an oil change, tire rotation, clean air filter? If your house is like mine you have no clue. The car is needed, but I (and you) don’t have time or money to give to it.
Enter Pep Boys, they recently sent us a gift card for an oil change and inspection and wanted me to try out their online registration and tracking system. I can’t turn down a free oil change, so I hopped online found the nearest location and quickly had my car registered. It took all of 5 minutes to pick an appointment time and enter the car’s info. We printed out the paper work and dropped it off at night, all registered and ready for it’s 8 am appointment. The fun part was they send you a tracking # for your car and you can log on and see at any point where your car’s progress is. I love it! (Seriously more professions should come up with something list this…).
Getting the car back I’m pretty sure it is happier, it doesn’t talk a lot but I always feel like it is more spry after we show it some tlc.
