Here at Carsforsale.com, we are all celebrating this Thanksgiving holiday at home with our families. We want to wish you and all of your family a Happy Thanksgiving, from our Carsforsale.com family to yours. This is a time of year when we all can sit back and reflect on the joys in our life and celebrate the good in our life. Before everyone left to eat turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing and all the other fixings, we got to ask a few our our employees just exactly what they are thankful for. And of course, we just had to through in things about their vehicle too.

What make/model vehicle do you drive?
2012 Ford Focus SFE.
What technology or feature are you most thankful for in your vehicle? And why?
I am most thankful for Microsoft Sync and my fuel economy gauge.  I love using voice command to control my iPhone for music and phone calls.  Additionally, I enjoy reminding myself how much money I’m saving by going with the “Super Fuel Economy” package when I purchased my ride.
Any vehicle from your past are you thankful you no longer have to drive?
I am thankful that I no longer have to drive a vehicle without a working radio/stereo.  Previously, I drove a ’99 Oldsmobile Aurora that had a fire break out in the central dashboard (while parked next to a gas pump, mind you).  I lost all electrical function, and continued to drive the vehicle for another year.  I’m not sure what was worse, not having a radio or constantly smelling like a dry chemical fire extinguisher…

2012 Mazda 6
What technology or feature are you most thankful for in your vehicle? And why?
I have found that I am most thankful for the different safety features and feeling comfortable driving on wintery roads. I’m not very ‘tech savvy’ when it comes to cars, so Bluetooth is probably the extent of the technology I use in my car.  To be honest, my previous car was very old, so as silly as it sounds, I was pretty pumped that it even has keyless entry!
Any vehicle from your past are you thankful you no longer have to drive?
My previous car was a 2000 Chevy Malibu, so until I “upgraded” last winter, I didn’t realize how nice it was to have a car that you didn’t have to say a small prayer before each time you got in with hopes that it would start.
Besides working for an amazing company like Carsforsale.com, what are you most thankful for in life?
I am most thankful for such supportive family and friends that are always so helpful and encouraging. I am especially thankful for my new chubby baby nephew.

2008 Dodge Durango.
What technology or feature are you most thankful for in your vehicle? And why?
I am most thankful for the seat warmers in my vehicle. Living in South Dakota we have harsh winters, so that feature saves the day!
Any vehicle from your past are you thankful you no longer have to drive?
One vehicle I will never forget is the vehicle I drove in high school. It was a 2003 Mitsubishi  Lancer. I drove that vehicle for a good 5 plus years and never had any problems with it. I was sad to see it go but it was time to upgrade to a vehicle more family oriented.
Besides working for an amazing company like Carsforsale.com, what are you most thankful for in life?
I am most thankful for the family and friends. My family has always been there for me and never let me down. My friends are the people in my life I have adopted as family. I am thankful for good times we have all shared together. My husband and I are also very thankful and proud of the birth of our son JC this year.
