Clock Won\'t Keep the Time

TIME. It's an interesting concept don't you think? It's both huge and minute all at once. It's nothing tangible and it can't be perceived by our senses, but yet it exists and even more, it controls our lives. We never have enough of it, it can apparently change speeds as some times it feels as though it flies by in the blink of an eye. Can you imagine a world without time? Work would either be endless or short; sports may not exist; movies could be never ending. The point is, we take time for granted. Many people don't even think about it.

For years this little thought never really crossed my mind. Sure, the power goes out, we have to reset our clocks. With the advent of the cell phone, this even doesn't need to be done. Many people today (such as myself) don't even have clocks in the house anymore aside from the stove or microwave. With cell phones being so easily at our disposal, we have a personal clock on us at almost all times.

It was these thoughts that didn't come to my head till recently. They came because I found out that the clock in my car was incorrect. When I first noticed it, it was only a couple minutes. I thought that it may have been because it was a brand new car (maybe 2 weeks old at the time). I went about setting it to the time that was on my cell phone as cell phones are governed by satellites and today, this May 16, 2013, I discovered that, after setting the clock a month ago, my clock is now 13 minutes behind my cell phone. Typically this wouldn't at all bother me whatsoever if it was a couple minutes, as I'm sure it wouldn't bother most people, but 13 minutes in the span of a month!? That is crazy! I've only just begun to call the dealership where I got the car and they will be looking into it tomorrow.

In a way, this is kind of an attempt at getting a larger audience to see my dilemma and perhaps offer advice in the event that you've experienced a similar situation. I've scoured the internet looking for answers but to no avail. I don't know if it's not a common issue or if it has something to do with my car being so new? The answer eludes me. I have not touched anything electronically in the car due to customization or anything. Can anyone offer any guidance?
