It was a typical Tuesday night in our family—we were all gathered in the living room waiting for Mama to finish cooking the meatballs. We sat around talking while the evening news played in the background. Here I am, mid-sentence and the news anchor breaks into a story about a nation-wide tire recall (watch the newscast http://abcnews.go.com/US/danger-wheels-feds-set-announce-tire-investigation-results/story?id=34757456 ) Seeing as a majority of my time is spent in the auto world, my attention naturally turned to the news. I was completely floored by this newscast–“more than half—56%–of recalled tires remain in use.”

allbrandform2Apparently, only 1 in 5 defective tires are actually being taken off of the road through the safety recall processes that are in place. Now, I’m thinking how on earth can this be?  Here is what I know: whenever you purchase tires (regardless of where you purchase them from) a card like the one pictured above should be filled out and mailed in. This is the only way tire manufacturers can notify you if there is a recall on your tires. The vendor (the shop or store who sold you the tires) should have this card, fill it out and mail it in for you. MAKE SURE TO ASK IF THIS HAS BEEN DONE! It could very well save your life.image

Hi! Welcome to Grease In Her Veins. My name is Genette and I am the General Manager of A. Anthony's Mobile Vehicle Service, Inc.--a good, old fashioned, mom-and-pop automotive repair shop in Laurel, Maryland. Over the past 26 years that I have been in the automotive industry, I have learned so much from so many--my father, Anthony who started our company over 30 years ago, my team of brilliant automotive and truck technicians who service all makes and models, and my clients whom I call my Automotive Family! What better way to share all of that experience than right here. As I take what my family created so many years ago and usher in the next generation of technology and automotive advancements, so too must my shop evolve--but most importantly without losing the charm and hospitality that makes it so special. At A. Anthony's Mobile Vehicle Service, Inc. we call it Dealer Quality--Family Feel. I look forward to sharing with you, and I invite you to visit my shop and feel the difference for yourself!
