Consumers Pick Top Vocalist for Road Trip Prep Listening



Cars and music have always gone together so it only makes sense that when you are preparing your vehicle for a road trip, you would listen to some tunes. According to a nationwide survey of more than 25,000 vehicle owners conducted on behalf of the non-profit Car Care Council, Bruce Springsteen and Keith Urban were the preferred choice to listen to when getting ready to hit the road.



"...We thought it would be a fun idea to find out which musicians car owners like to listen to when getting ready for a road trip," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "It was no surprise that Bruce Springsteen, the guy who wrote 'Cadillac Ranch' and 'Pink Cadillac,' would be the top choice. However, as with cars, people like a wide variety of music, as evidenced by Keith Urban finishing second and Bruno Mars third in our survey."



The survey, conducted by IMR Inc., an automotive market research company, polled more than 25,000 consumers ages 18-65 throughout the country, who were asked to choose which recording artist they would want to listen to while preparing their vehicle for a road trip. The final results were as follows:











Bruce Springsteen 24.0%
Keith Urban 16.4%
Bruno Mars 16.1%
Jimmy Buffett 15.7%
Lady Gaga 11.5%
Taylor Swift 8.6%
Beyonce 7.7%


"We want to thank IMR Inc. for asking this question as part of its quarterly consumer auto maintenance study," said White.



Bill Thompson, president of IMR, commented, "Based on the number of responses, we know people are very passionate about their music and their cars."



"A simple driveway inspection of your vehicle while listening to your favorite music can help prevent the inconvenience of a roadside breakdown or in the words of another Springsteen song, 'A Wreck on the Highway,'" said White. "In just 10 minutes, drivers can make sure their car is ready for travel and then take steps to have any problems fixed before heading out on the road."

Before beginning a trip, the Car Care Council recommends that vehicle owners:




  • Check all fluids, including engine oil, power steering and brake and transmission, as well as windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.


  • Check the hoses and belts that can become cracked, brittle, frayed and loose or show signs of excessive wear. These are critical to the proper functioning of the electrical system, air conditioning, power steering and the cooling system.


  • Check the tires, including tire pressure and tread. Uneven wear indicates a need for wheel alignment. Tires should also be checked for bulges and bald spots.


  • Check the wipers and lighting so that you can see and be seen. Check that all interior and exterior lighting is working properly and inspect and replace worn wiper blades so you can see clearly when driving during precipitation.


The Car Care Council also recommends that motorists restock their emergency kit and consider a tune-up to help the engine deliver the best balance of power and fuel economy. To further save on fuel costs during the trip, the council suggests that motorists avoid aggressive driving, observe the speed limit and avoid excessive idling. Gas caps that are damaged, loose or missing should be replaced to prevent gas from spilling or evaporating.

    I started taking my daughters car here after a horrible experience at Firestone down the road. They have been honest and straight forward with us. They made my daughter feel as if she could trust them and their work over the other repair shops around. Keep up the great work!

    Both of my children attend UTC. Any time there is an issue with one of their vehicles I have to deal with it remotely. Every time the team at Maxi has taken care of them without question and given us fantastic service. It is hard to find someone who you feel you can trust to do the right thing and treat young customers with professionalism and respect. I recommend the team at Dayton Blvd without question.

    I live in central Florida and my son attends UT Chat. He needed some immediate muffler repairs on his truck and as a college kid, he was clueless who to take it to. I found Maxi on the web and read excellent review after review so I sent my son in. I called ahead and spoke with Steve who was extremely kind and very professional. They did an amazing job with honesty and integrity being first at hand. Thanks Steve!! I would definitely recommend this business if your are seeking quality, honest, and professional service.
