If you are like many other car owners, you may have spent a lot of time researching vehicles and test driving various options before you found the one perfect car that blew you away. You may have loved hopping behind the wheel every day, and you may have been filled with pride as you cruised around town. Unfortunately, the shine on a new car never lasts long.
