(Newser) – Go ahead and check under the hood—just be sure you're talking about the car. Skoda, a car company based out of the Czech Republic, has launched a dating service that pairs people based on their musical tastes, and then sets them up on blind dates/test drives, reports Mashable.

Visitors to its website can enter their Facebook and Spotify info to find users who like similar music. You can then message your potential mate and arrange to test out a car together. Unfortunately, since Spotify won't be available in the US until later this week, Americans looking for a love connection will have to keep their online dating and car shopping mutually exclusive—for now.
