It’s a great idea to take care of your car any time of the year, but Car Care Month is celebrated in April. We take for granted all of the time we spend in our vehicles, so let’s just take a minute to think about the ways we can take care of our cars…and ourselves in the process.
1) Use seatbelts. Yes, it’s the law, but using a seatbelt lowers your risk of serious injury or fatality in the event of an accident.
2) Get regular oil changes. We’ve all heard “Change your oil every 3000 miles”, but realistically, experts say with proper maintenance, oil-life in your vehicle can last you 5000 miles.
3) Invest the time in general car care.By spending a little time now on preventive maintenance, drivers can save a lot of headaches in the long run and make for a great year on the road.
Carcare.org offers many tips and tools to help maintain your car year round.
In addition to showing your car some love, regular vehicle maintenance can keep you safer on the road, save you some time and money in the long run, and definitely keep your sanity.
