General Motors Suggests Washing Car as Mother’s Day Gift
But what do the mothers of America want for Mother’s Day? General Motors says that according to a study conducted for them, one in every three house makers would like their car washed and cleaned as a Mother’s Day gift. At the same time, 21 percent said a family trip would be nice.
If none of these fit the bill, GM also has some other suggestions:
- 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.
We’d suggest a small brown teddy-bear or one of those wiggling fake plants that move powered by solar power. Just don't forget: it's this sunday!
