My Journey Toward Car Literacy

I Married A Car Guy: My Journey Toward Car Literacy

Welcome to the non-automotive automotive blog. My name is Debbie Nol, and I have been the Business Manager at Arie Nol Auto Center since 2000. I have a unique perspective, as I am not a ‘car person’ but work in an industry filled with people passionate about vehicles. It gives me the ability to share what I’ve learned over 20 years and hopefully help you navigate the world of car repair and maintenance more comfortably. However, posts will not always be vehicle related. I love to share observations and story’s from ‘auto world’ with shoes and cats thrown in for good measure.

I’m glad you’re here, and I look forward to you getting to know us a little bit better through this blog!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

Working in auto repair during the holidays is busy because many people travel and need their cars to be ready for a road trip. While we try to remind people to plan ahead and get their vehicles in early, break downs occur and need to be taken care of so the trip out of town isn’t delayed. Our goal is to reduce the stress of car repair, but accomplishing this during the holidays can be a challenge.

Our goal is to reduce the stress of car repair, but accomplishing this during the holidays can be a challenge.

In the midst of all this busyness, there are moments that remind us of the goodness of so many people. Customers waiting in our reception area and chatting about family and holiday plans with people they’ve just met. Watching our Toys for Tots box fill up with donations from customers who give to positively impact a child they don’t know. Watching a Kentwood police officer carry in toys, and finding out that the Kentwood Police Department officers purchased gifts for some young children that tragically lost their mother last week. Attending events for causes that we believe in and watching the generosity of our great city as people step up to support those in need. Listening to a stressed retail employee apologize to a customer and having the customer say, “You’re doing a great job and I understand completely. You have a great day!”

These moments should stop us in our tracks and remind us of the overwhelming good in the world. You just have to look for it.

Merry Christmas from all of us at Arie Nol Auto Center!
