Taking care of business, maintaining my vehicle
I try to take care of what I own. It may not be the top of the line, or designer, the latest/greatest but it's mine, and I want as well as need my things to last. My car is no exception. I carefully drove it to the dealership after work yesterday, and finally had my snow tires removed, the all season radials put back on. Since I bought the tires through them, there was no charge. They also perforned a safety inspection, again at no cost to me; all is well for another 6,000 miles. I did get 2 new replacement batteries for my keyless ignition as one fob was dead, the second one registering as weak. Done.
Last issue to address: getting my replacement windshield, thanks to the pot hole rock that kicjed up and cracked the original one. Yes, it'll cost me about $385 but this is an investment that I want to keep in tip top shape. Although a 2010 model, it only has 36,000 miles on it, with me being the driver to put the most mileage on the car. The plan is to keep this car about 5 more years, if possible, setting aside $ every month so as to be able to again pay cash for a future replacement.
I also would like to take it in to be detailed this Summer.
