GRAND BLANC, Mich.—A new interactive service available at ACDelco's Internet site allows visitors to submit information on their driving habits and receive a personalized, detailed maintenance schedule for up to seven vehicles. The ``Driver's Log'' is accessible at www.acdelco.com. ACDelco is part of General Motors Corp.'s Service Parts Operations (SPO).
The new service ``will make it easier than ever to maintain service schedules,'' according to Tom Liles, manager of e-commerce marketing for SPO. ``By servicing vehicles at recommended time frames, owners will find their cars and trucks performing better, with less wear and tear.''
GM said the easy-to-use online reminder service takes into account factors such as daily driving habits and the date a service was last performed. It also tracks seven routine maintenance procedures: oil changes, tune-ups, filters, tires, brakes, cooling systems and shock absorbers.
Mr. Liles said users can call up their Driver's Log to review or edit their maintenance schedules at any time and can also obtain maintenance history information, such as when the coolant was last changed.
Users also can request e-mail reminders to let them know when maintenance is due—something he called very helpful for families, and even companies, owning several vehicles. ``It will be a breeze to keep oil changes and tire rotations on schedule,'' he added.
In addition to the Driver's Log, the ACDelco Web site also features an online store for merchandise; a retail locator service that allows visitors to find the closest ACDelco retail or repair facility; weekly race reports detailing motorsports events; and opportunities to chat with ACDelco-sponsored celebrities.
SPO has its headquarters in Grand Blanc, Mich. The GM division markets automotive replacement parts and accessories worldwide under the GM and ACDelco brand names.
