Q: Hi Katrin. Welcome to Defend Your Ride Baltimore. Great Acura. What is its main use?
A: Everything, work, errands.
Q: How much time do you spend in it a day?
A: Eight hours.
Q: That’s a lot!
A: I spend my whole day working because I go from house to house as a nurse. I don’t know how much time I actually spend in the car. I just drive constantly.
Q: Do you have a favorite part of your commute?
A: My commute is different every day.
Q: Where did you get your car?
A: The Acura dealership. It was a good experience. I got it from Franklin.
Q: What’s your favorite day trip from home?
A: The beach. I drove to the beach. I went on a boat and laid on the beach. I went on the boardwalk.
Q: Where’s the craziest place you’ve ever driven?
A: Punkin Chunkin. It’s in Delaware. People build big machines and they chuck pumpkins across fields. They use buses and make pressurized systems or they use catapults.
Q: That’s hilarious. So random. Do you have any rules in your car?
A: No smoking, and don’t leave your crap in my car!
Q: If your car had a theme song, what would it be?
A: “Last Friday Night” by Katy Perry.
Q: Great song. And if your car had a human trait, what would it be?
