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’s the same with cars
Car owners go through something similar with their cars, especially when problems begin to become regular in a slightly older car. Besides all of the new features and upgrades a newer model offers, there’s the newness of it, which is mostly that it hasn’t had the misfortune yet of belonging to us. Once it does, it sees the same decline as the last one.
Whether you stay with your current car or ditch it for a newer model, you will still have the same problems you began with in time. If you don’t look after your car and treat it with respect, the neglect will damage it -- just as it would with a human partner.
So what do we do?
Your car can’t change unless YOU change it. The key to either situation is for YOU to change, to become the kind of person who does a better job of caretaking and paying attention. You do that in your relationship by re-establishing intimacy. Not just physical intimacy, but communication. The same is true with your car! You get out more in your car, clean it more often, and bring it in for the scheduled maintenance. And you will get more out of that car, and it will last you for many more years -- just as your relationship lasts longer for finding the love between you again.
Don’t give up on a great car that just needs tender loving care. Bring your vehicle into Super Service of Aliso Viejo. Together, we can give you a car you will want to drive, if you choose to try. If you need assistance with your current car, schedule an appointment at Super Service and let us get you back on the road. And remember to add us on Facebook for news and updates! We look forward to seeing you soon.
