As I reflect on the 4th of July holiday, we were blessed to spend time with our family. I will forever be grateful to the brave soldiers that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our Independence from Britain. July 4th, our Nations Birthday, is a time of celebrating being an American. From all walks of life, this day and every day, we become one, AMERICANS! Let us not take this for granted.
Did you know that three of our Founding Father Presidents died on July 4th? Thomas Jefferson and John Adams passed July 4, 1826, and James Monroe passed July 4, 1831. Alexander Hamilton, founder of the New York Evening Post called this a “coincidence that has no parallel”.
Fun facts about the 4th of July. $6.77 Billion is spent on food which includes consuming 150 million hot dogs and 190 million pounds of beef. Americans light about 200 million pounds of fireworks and Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be our National Bird. Whew, good thing he lost the vote!
We are very independent people with the freedom to make choices in our everyday lives. That includes having the freedom to choose where you have your vehicle serviced. According to the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act enacted in 1975, it is illegal for a dealer to deny your warranty coverage because you had routine maintenance performed by someone else. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nations consumer protection agency, states the dealer can not refuse to honor your warranty if routine maintenance is performed by someone else. Routine maintenance includes oil changes, tire rotations, belt replacements, fluid checks and flushes, new brake pads, anything not listed in the manufactures warranty. If you are told you must go back to a dealer for routine maintenance in order to keep your warranty valid, that is not the truth!
