I was very fortunate to meet a man named Luigi Galeazi, who just happens to be one of the finance managers for AutoPark Honda of Cary, 3 years ago. He has a son that I taught as a 2-year-old pre-school teacher. I just happened to love this little boy very much because he is bright, articulate, and has the most amazing cognitive ability of any two I had every had the pleasure of teaching.
What has this got to do with cars? Nothing. And everything. You see, Luigi helped to get me a job selling cars. I never thought I could do it, you have probably felt that same way. I can’t sell cars. Yes you can. Because we all sell our selves every day…and what we do. We just don’t realize it. I mean I had to sell my expertise to parents when they toured my class while they made the decision to enroll their child in my class or someone else’s. Was the trust factor there? Yes, because I had a waiting list for my class that was over a year and a half long, but I digress.
Luigi gave me a referral that got me a job selling cars. And I sold cars for about 8 months, when I was recognized for my customer care. Then I was given the opportunity to work solely with customers in their satisfaction with their experience at our dealership. And I can tell you that this job is just as frustrating, rewarding, and fulfilling as my teaching position.
So thank you, Luigi Galeazi for the chance…a chance that has lead me somewhere I never thought I would ever be. Do I miss working with kids? Absolutely. Do I miss selling cars? Sure. But I absolutely love what I do now. And I am sure this is what teaching all those 2 year olds prepared me to do.
It’s a fact, a well maintained vehicle runs more efficiently, and that means more money in your pocket and less time in the shop. It’s our goal at AutoPark Honda to catch any potential issues by offering you a free multi-point inspection.
Multi point inspection checklist
What is a multi-point inspection you may ask? Well, it involves looking at all your vehicle’s major systems. Checking all the fluids, belts, hoses, air filter, tires, shocks / struts, exhaust, transmission & drivetrain, steering components & brakes.
Why should you have a multi-point inspection done? Taking care of your vehicle now means it will take care of you by getting you to where ever you need to be… sounds cliché, but it’s true.
Help your vehicle be the reliable vehicle you bought… print this coupon and book your free multi-point inspection today, before one of those freak North Carolina snowstorms roles in and your stuck on the side of the road waiting for a tow truck.
Nothing speaks to quality long-lasting vehicles more than the story of Joe and his 1990 Honda Accord. Joe drives an average of 62,500 miles a year… that’s not a typo, it’s not a misquote, it’s the truth. For the last 14 years he’s been a claims adjuster in Maine, and he’s crossed Maine many, many, many times.
Want to know the secret to getting more miles out of your vehicle? Here’s how Joe did it:
read and follow the owner’s manual and maintenance schedule to the letter
check fluids often (Joe did it weekly) switch fluids seasonally (10w-30 in summer & 5w-30 in winter), he also changed them every 5,000 miles… he never let it get below a quart and used the same brand each time
never let the fuel get into the E zone
used only Honda air, oil and fuel filters
never rode hard on the brakes and changed their fluid every few years
he also replaced the fuel pump, both cooling fans and the radiator twice
last but not least… Joe gave his Accord a lot of TLC
Joe used to work as an automotive technician for 18 years, which helped him to reach such a milestone, but let’s not forget that Honda has a reputation of building durable, reliable vehicles.
Joe has taken more than 661 photos of his odometer… “A Million Miles in 45 Seconds”
Yesterday, Honda hosted a surprise parade in Saco, Maine, to celebrate Joe’s amazing accomplishment. The parade interrupted a brief press conference where Joe was scheduled to receive an oversized key to a new 2012 Honda Accord from Ms. Maine, Ashley Marble.
