National Car Care Month
Last year at nationwide Car Care events vehicle inspections found that seven out of 10 vehicles had at least one component that failed.
“Neglected vehicle care almost always means much higher costs down the line in the form of more extensive repairs or lost resale value,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “National Car Care Month in April is the perfect time to focus on your vehicle’s maintenance needs.” Regular vehicle maintenance could save owner’s some money – not to mention reduce the possibility of a breakdown. Other benefits include improved performance and lowering emissions. A simple misfiring spark plug can cut fuel efficiency by as much as 30%.
Motorists are keeping their vehicles over 11+ years on average – making maintenance even more critical.
