[blurb] This week’s “How I Drive” guest is Allison Singer, an Active Chassis Controls Functional Integrator for Fiat Chrysler Automotive. You may remember FCA’s Wendy Michalski from her “How I Drive” feature in May, so we’re excited to feature another FCA team member’s driving profile.
How I Drive | Allison Singer
Daily Driver: If I’m not evaluating one of our engineering vehicles, I drive a 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T (in Hemi Orange, of course). But I can’t wait to get my new 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T in Sublime Green!
Time Spent Driving/day: A solid two hours to and from work daily; after I get home it’s another one – two hours per night on the road evaluating vehicles and/or just getting to the places I need to go.
Road Most Traveled: Without a doubt, it’s M-59, a local highway here in Michigan.
Driving Style in One Word: Spirited!
In-Car Must-Haves: I can’t function without my music and my hands are always cold; therefore, I need my Uconnect Bluetooth Streaming Audio/Sirius Satellite Radio and a heated steering wheel! During the winter, I spend my workweek in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula – which is a long drive and the temperature in the winter can drop well below zero. I don’t think I could make that trip if I did not have those features.
Driving Tunes: My taste in music is pretty eclectic and varies depending on my mood and which way the wind is blowing that day. I find myself flipping between the 80’s, 90’s, current hits, country, and hip-hop channels on Sirius satellite radio. And, the albums on my iPhone…I won’t embarrass myself by admitting what albums are actually on there.
Time-saving technique: I am not a fan of traffic, so I like to be on the road at odd hours whenever I can. I’ll happily drive through the night to avoid having to deal with rush hour traffic!
Hanging from rear view: Nothing! I’ve gotten too many lectures from my dad about ‘anything in a vehicle becoming a projectile in a crash’ throughout the years. I hear ya, dad!
