Falling in Love Again

Love can be a funny thing. You may have found yourself sitting next to a total stranger, over time, and wonder (like the Talking Heads song), how did I get here?
We are growing and constantly changing in our lives until the first taste of our mortality sets us in place for the last significant change. Loving someone at 20 is not the same as loving them at 30, 40, or 50. Everyone changes. The people in our lives sometimes let us down or leave us feeling lonely.
In a good marriage, you find common ground that binds you together and allows it all to come back. We can sometimes grow with each other, loving each other to the very end of the line. And sometimes, along the way, we grow apart irreparably and must forge a new path on our own.
This situation can also apply to our car. It’s no wonder that a shiny 2021 model can turn our heads. New models have improved features and contemporary comforts. Even a good, faithful car can become too familiar over time, as aging brings problems and we see new, shinier vehicles on the road. It is tempting to start over again. 
But when love is real, you put in the work. With people, that’s counseling, listening to each other, and responding to each other’s needs. With cars, that’s proper maintenance and long-term care. You take care of your vehicle, and it takes care of you.
Whichever direction you are going in your car, at Family Auto Service, we want to help. If you’re ready to take better care of your old car, we can help there. If you’re ready to move on to a new vehicle, we may be able to provide some advice. If you require service on your vehicle, remember to schedule an appointment with our auto mechanic team.
