Imagine you just got your first vehicle, all shiny and beautiful and new (or new-to-you, at least). It’s your favorite color; it has comfy seats; it has all the things you’d ever wish for. You start off with great intentions of taking the absolute best care of it, because wow, hey, this thing is great!…… Continue reading human-body-vehicle maintenance
