Save Money by Spending Money on Car Maintenance – April is National Car Care Month!

Save money by spending money…can this be true? Yes, if you maintain your vehicle. According to the Car Care Council executive director Rich White, “Neglected vehicle care almost always means much higher costs down the line, either in the form of more extensive repairs or lost resale value.” (See press release.)

During vehicle inspections, 8 out of 10 vehicles failed at least one check. That means 80% of vehicles on the road need a replacement part or service. This could mean, that it is likely, that your vehicle needs:

Additional Fluids – Oil, coolant, transmission fluid, windshield washer fluid, power steering fluid, brake fluid, etc.
New Replacement Parts – Windshield wipers, belts, hoses, air filter, PCV valve, tires, lights, etc.
