How Well Do You Treat Your Car? - Quiz

Let's face it - you probably spend a lot of time together. Especially if you're traffic-bound every day. It keeps you company on the way to work, listens patiently while you sing loudly and off-key, you go to the movies together, maybe you even take long trips over the weekend. You and your car have a special relationship like no other - but are you more of a taker than a giver? Your car starts up when you need it, keeps on truckin' after a stretch of red lights, and keeps you comfortable in all types of weather. With all that your car gives you, isn't it time to evaluate how much you do for your car? Take this quiz to find out how well you care for your car - and whether it should love you, or leave you.

The Prissy Pedal-Pusher

Your car still has that plastic protective strip over the radio display and you seriously consider taking your shoes off before getting behind the wheel. Yes - it’s true your car looks like you just drove it off the lot - but where’s the fun? Where’s the excitement? You’ve got some serious power under the hood, and we bet your car is just raring to go. You’ve got great habits - but maybe you should consider letting loose a little bit. Your car may feel your affection - but it likely feels a little useless as well. Go ahead, drive through that puddle those kids are walking by on the way to school - maybe even hang up an air freshener in a fruity, tropical scent! We probably don’t need to tell you about Car Care Month - it’s already on your calendar, isn’t it? Just keep in mind, your car doesn’t need to be hermetically sealed, but it does need some time on the open road. You better put it through its paces sooner rather than later, or you may be left with just a spare tire. Click here to see if there’s (somehow!) any Car Care Month tasks your missing this year.     

The Motorist Marvel

We have to admit - we’re a little bit impressed. You’re timely with your oil changes but you’ll still accelerate just a bit to make it through that yellow light. And don’t worry about that sticky change in your cup holder –pretty much everyone has a collection (we think). The hand car wash down the street expects you every Saturday and the only thing lounging around your trunk is a neatly piled selection of reusable grocery bags. Neat and earth conscious? Swoon. You know you’ve got to put in a little time to make sure your whip is ready for action at a moments notice, and it seems like you even enjoy it! However, if we may make one suggestion, could you please take down that Baby On Board sign? You already know Car Care is more than paint-deep - your car is a complex machine, and you like to keep it well oiled and looking fresh. Still, everyone has things to learn, and now is a great time to get back in touch with those tune-ups you may have forgotten about over the long winter. Click here to brush up on your Car Care tasks and keep your cruiser in fighting shape.
