General Motors Suggests Washing Car as Mother’s Day Gift

We know that 90 percent of moms drive, and they like to place and especially strong emphasis on economy and practicality. We’ve listened to endless discussion about the ease in which child seats do or don’t fit into a car, before we wondered off to talk about nitrous.

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!
