When’s the last time you said “thank you” to your car?
Thanksgiving is approaching and soon, most of us will be sitting around a table to a glorious feast, talking about the many things that we’re grateful for. In most cases, we’ll talk about the essential workers, like paramedics, police officers, the fire department, nurses, doctors, delivery drivers, and of course, mechanics. We’ll talk about the family and friends to survive the COVID-19 pandemic and in some cases, we’ll sadly remember the ones who didn’t.
At AutoPro, we’re grateful for our customers. We were able to help each other through what has turned out to be a very bleak year. Many shops have closed down, unable to sustain themselves through the pandemic, but thanks to our regulars and their caring, we managed to make it through.
But how often did you notice in the past summer how good it was to have a working automobile? How great it felt to take off your mask the moment you closed the door on your own confined space? Not exactly a HazMat suit, but it at the very least meant getting yourself someplace you could feel safer and breathe freer?
AutoPro has some suggestions for those who would like to give thanks and a little love back to their cars:
- Cleaning your car, in & out - it helps the engine from getting particulates in your systems and cleaning the inside keeps you healthier. Plus, a clean car is a car you will protect more and drive safer in.
- Keep Calm and Drive On - don’t let anger get the best of you, or ruin your car as a safe space from anger. Let rude behavior go with a smile and wave. Be glad no one was hurt and no property was damaged.
- Group your trips together - it’s less wearing on the car and fewer trips out means fewer chances of a random accident.
- Flush it out - take advantage of our flush fluid exchange programs (brake fluid, coolant, power steering, & transmission) to help clear out grit in your system and extend the life of your car.
Notice that all of these ideas are designed to save you money in the long run. The better your car runs, the more value you can get out of it over time.
