Preventive Maintenance For Your Car

Preventive Maintenance For Your Car

Image by SinayKata from Pixabay  What is Preventive Maintenance? When you hear the words ‘preventive maintenance’, what comes to mind? For most mechanics and shop owners, it brings to mind a general practitioner’s office.    In a GP’s office, the doctor is focused on keeping your health to the point where you don’t need a surgeon. Surgery is traumatic and costly, and he wants to spare you that by advising you on keeping your health in check. Eventually, as you age, you will need to see specialists, to cover the buildup of bad things in the body. If you skip going to the doctor, you will likely suffer and deal with costly bills as surgery is required ... read more

Spring Fever

Spring Fever

Photo by hilary bird on Unsplash Why Does a New Car Turn Our Heads? “In the Spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.” Tennyson’s words are true of everyone. The spring is a time of renewal, when we long to make the perfect connection with a partner.    Those of us who are married or committed strive to be more in love, but sometimes, that can be hard. When a partner only seems to decline over time, whether you realize it or not, you are subconsciously making a choice as to whether you will stay with them to the end, or abandon them for a newer, potentially younger person. And sometimes that leads people astray -- but sometimes, it leads people to being closer to the ones they love. It ... read more

A Love Letter to a Dying Car

A Love Letter to a Dying Car

Photo by Orzalaga on Pixabay   Have you ever had to say a hard goodbye to a good partner? One that carried you when life had you down and all you could do is coast? Here’s a look at someone saying goodbye– a love letter to a dying car:   My Dearest Pathfinder,   I’m in the waiting room of the auto repair shop right now, and my mechanic seems to be preparing me for the worst news. So I’m sitting here, thinking about a future without you, thinking about that last pass I’ll have to make to collect all the items that are still inside you before I get a ride home and they take you away for scrap.   I don’t know when I stopped paying attention. But at some point, I did. Maybe it was because you were so reliable, so dependable. But it’s clear to me that I took you for granted. When money got a little tight, I worried and I didn’t ... read more

Looking Ahead

Looking Ahead

Photo by Mehdi MeSSrro on Unsplash   It’s the first day of 2022, and we’re naturally looking ahead to an interesting new year ahead of us. These are fast times in many industries, and especially in the automotive industry. Changes are in motion, and soon, all the rules will change– forever reshaping the American highway.   California is certainly at the center of it all. We’re the first state in the U.S. to set limits for building permission of gas stations and for the sales of new gas vehicles, pushing many industries into the 21st century and the arrival of EVs.    We don’t know what’s ahead yet, but we’re very interested in the following new technologies:   Electri ... read more
