We recently held a contest at Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk to find a GREAT name for our new blog. As it turned out, our customers inspired us to create a new name that represented all their submissions: wehearthonda.com! But we still had a prize to give away. After a random drawing, Sandy Lewinski of Cumberland, RI, won the iPad.
Sandy and her daughter Katie stopped by Honda Seekonk to pick up her prize and get an oil change from our service department. As it turned out, her car didn’t need the oil change–one of our service advisers showed her that the oil was at over 60% and the car could certainly go a few miles more. Still, Sandy said it was worth the trip: “What a way to start my Friday! When I got the call this morning I ran and woke up my daughter to tell her I won an iPad!” We asked her about her Honda experiences.
“I’ve been driving my 2003 Honda Odyssey for 178,000 miles and it just won’t quit on me,” Sandy told us. “Years of field hockey, swimming, soccer practices. Moms–we make it happen.” Sandy’s family agrees. Both her daughters own Hondas and enjoy their reliability: “Hondas are tried and true,” said Katie. (Dad drives a Toyota, so it looks like we still have some work to do. We’re on it.)
A Herb Chambers customer for over 10 years, Sandy makes the trip (over 25 miles) for her automotive service needs and says she is never disappointed. “Today’s a perfect example. Tim [Islip, Senior Service Advisor] is the best. He could’ve gone ahead and done the oil change, but he didn’t want to sell me what I didn’t need. That’s why I keep coming back,” Sandy explained, “We know we’ll be satisfied here.”
Would Sandy ever give her minivan up for a smaller, more sporty Honda–maybe an Accord or CR-V like her daughters drive? She doesn’t know. “My Odyssey still runs and looks great after 10 years. People used to tease me about my ‘mom-mobile’ but even now, whenever we take a trip, they all pile in. I say, embrace the minivan!”
Thanks, Sandy, we agree!
