This time of the year there are an incredible amount of things to be grateful for, and being grateful for your car is something that is underrated. Your car does so much for you and provides you with the opportunities to do even more. Here are a few of the things to make sure to think about when you’re writing out that gratitude list.
One of the more amazing things that having a car provides for you is freedom. Freedom to work, to live, and to go where you want on your terms. It is definitely a challenge to be reliant on public transportation, friends and family, or rideshare to get to places that your feet or something like a bicycle to get you where you need to go.
Cars are definitely not how they used to be, and that is a wonderful thing! The safety features that cars come with and that are optional to add are absolutely something to be very grateful for. Knowing that in the event of the unthinkable, our cars are going to be able to provide as much as possible to keep us and our families safe. When looking for a car, always make sure that you’re getting the features that you want and need as the safety features in cars continue to get better and better.
Fun and Practical Features
Not only are we grateful for cars and their safety, but also for the other features that make driving more enjoyable and comfortable, whether it’s just a commute to work or a road trip. Some of the features that deserve our attention and gratitude include:

  • GPS allows us to not only be more hands-free with our devices, which helps keep us safe but also makes it so depending on maps that may be outdated and confusing helps us avoid traffic and take the best way to get to our destination
  • Rearview/Back-Up Cameras provide us with more ways to help keep us safe or provide relief on our neck when craning to ensure that we are not backing up into traffic or if an unexpected animal or child runs behind us
  • Heated seats really help make mornings and cold weather driving a much more pleasant experience, and though it isn’t a necessity, if it’s in your car, you know you’re going to be happy you have it.
