Survey says cleaning her car would be a fine gift for one in three Moms
Corry area mothers spend a great deal of time in the car, shuttling children, running errands and commuting. Nine out of 10 Moms drive… somewhere.
A national online survey conducted by Harris Interactive® for General Motors found that one in three Moms with mess makers, er, kids under 18, would like their car washed and cleaned as a Mother’s Day gift.
More than one in five (21 percent) would like a family road trip for Mother’s Day. The survey didn’t indicate whether Mom wanted to do the driving.
If neither of those survey responses resonates, Crotty Chevrolet Buick offers these budget-friendly ideas for your mother’s car on Mother’s Day
• Give her some gas. Just one in 10 Moms mentioned this in the survey, but a fill-up could be a nice surprise anyway – one less thing for her to do.
• A little fresh air. After the car wash and vacuuming, spend an extra $3 or so for an air freshener. But choose wisely on the scent.
• Some peace of mind. Another gift for Mom’s vehicle is OnStar FMV, the aftermarket replacement mirror packed with OnStar’s core safety, security and connectivity services like Turn-by-Turn directions. The hardware and installation is now just $99.99 (through June 16) and subscription plans cost $199 per year for the base package or $299 per year for the premium package. FMV is compatible with more than 100 million vehicles on the road.
And don’t forget a card. Leave it on the front seat of her car. And if it’s not a singing card, you can surprise Mom by downloading some of her favorite music or making a custom CD to help her enjoy the drive.
