Hi. Thanks for visiting our new blog.
This blog has been a year in the making believe it or not. Several internal meetings discussing what should we put in? What should we leave out? Everybody is doing a blog… Everybody’s doing something… We need a blog.
Honestly the meetings became a lot like one of my favorite episodes of Seinfeld when George and Jerry go to pitch NBC for their show about nothing.
I was determined that our blog was going to be different. And let’s face it a blog about nothing was just not going to help anyone. There are plenty of them out there for you already.
The coolest thing about CarMD is that we are in the business of helping people. I get excited coming to work everyday and hearing of a new testimonial about how we helped someone save time or money on their car repair. I am very passionate about giving people the tools and information they need to properly care for their vehicle. All of us here at CarMD are here to help people with their vehicle issues. Remember what it feels like to just help somebody? To do somebody a solid favor expecting nothing in return. To help that soccer mom jump start her car in the pouring rain. No strings attached. Which brings me to the purpose of this blog.
The main purpose of this blog is to help people with the information they need to properly care for their vehicles. All vehicles 1996 and newer have an onboard computer system that contains a wealth of information about the operating condition of your vehicle. Furthermore there is a great deal of additional information such as TSB’s (Technical Service Bulletins) warranty and recalls that will save you time and money.
CarMD has a huge network of ASE certified technicians that help people each and every day with real world solutions to the vehicle problems and concerns you are experiencing right now. You are not alone! You’re not the only person who is driving your year, make and model vehicle and chances are VERY good that somebody has already dealt with the same issues you are facing right now.
This blog will feature many items designed to help you with the most frequent issues vehicle owners face. At CarMD University we will feature a write up of the fault code of the month where we will break down what exactly those cryptic codes like P0306 really mean and highlight customer case studies. We will also highlight recalls, where we’ll shine the light on what recalls have been issued that month and why they are important for you the consumer. Also we will highlight key technical service bulletins and let you know what issues the manufacturer already knows about and what you need to do to address these issues. There will be a regular Me & My Mechanic posting about basic car maintenance and communication with your technician. We will use video postings as well to help clearly communicate vehicle health and maintenance issues to all of you. Guest columnists will also appear with money saving ideas and strategies for you and your vehicle. And from time to time, we’ll sprinkle in a little entertainment, some humor, a celebrity guest and a new topic or two.
This blog will be used for ideas big and small and is intended to be a dynamic exchange. So don’t be shy when it comes to telling us what you want, what you need and how this blog can do a little more to help make your car maintenance and repair a little less scary. At the end of the day we want to help you care for your vehicle and will provide you every assistance in getting you all of the information from and about your vehicle for you to have a safe, well running vehicle and be a happy, informed motorist.
Here we go…
