She’s Got Style!
Meet Suzy Wagnitz of Car Décor Products, Inc.
Women in Automotive Network Member
If you’ve ever gone to the auto parts store, looked around and felt a bit out-of-place, you’ll be happy to meet Suzy Wagnitz. As the Owner and CEO of Car Décor Products, Inc., Suzy completely understands the relationship women have with their cars and she’s determined to help women find the accessories they need in a female-friendly environment.
CarDecor.com is an on-line retail store with a large selection of decorative car accessories specifically for women. Established in 2006, CarDecor.com is dedicated to offering women frivolous and functional car accessories that fit her lifestyle, offering an alternative to shopping in the male dominated automotive aisle of a big box or specialty automotive parts store.
From the warm, girly feel of the CarDecor.com website to the time women receive that gift-wrapped package with a “fresh” little surprise inside, Suzy wants women to feel special so that her time in her car is both fun and comfortable.
“Our mission is to help women accessorize her car like she decorates her home, with her personal style. Our vehicles are more than just basic transportation, Suzy says. They’re our family room on wheels. They take us to work, shuttle the kids, transport the groceries and whisk us away to vacation destinations”.
Suzy says one of the things she enjoys most about what she does is creating a retail store unlike any other on the internet offering women a female-friendly place to help find the perfect accessories to dress up their cars. And to add to the company’s female appeal, CarDecor also provides specialty gift wrapping and fast delivery.
When it comes to shopping for accessories, there are a few things women need to know. Suzy offers these simple tips to help women make the right decisions when they’re considering various options for their cars:
Tip # 1: When shopping for decorative car seat covers, customers need to be aware of whether or not their car has side seat airbags. Most aftermarket Universal Fit car seat covers are not compatible with car seats that contain airbags. Bell Automotive now offers Universal Fit car seat covers with “safety stitch technology” which is a breakaway seam, making it safe to use on these type of seats.
Tip #2: License Plates are novelty items that can be used as a decoration in a variety of ways. If you live in a state that does not require a front State License Plate you may use your decorative plate on the front of your car. Adding a decorative license plate to the front of your vehicle may require an additional bracket and screws. These parts vary by manufacturer and Suzy recommends you consult your local car dealership or auto part store to fit your car properly. If your state requires both a front and back State License Plate you can still add a little décor to your car with a License Plate Frame that creates a decorative border around your state plate. In most cases you can use the existing screws holding the state plate to install a frame.
Tip #3: Rear view mirror ornaments are a great way to add personal style to your car. However, Suzy cautions you on the use of any item you hang from your rear view mirror. Make sure the object does not obstruct the driver’s vision. Also, some jurisdictions prohibit the use of any rear view mirror ornaments.
From car headlight lashes to butterfly pink steering wheel covers, Suzy Wagnitz is giving women, cars and accessories a place of their own so that whenever, wherever her journey, she can do it in style.
