April Is National Car Care Month
The Car Care Council has released its Car Care Guide in time for National Car Care Month in April. The recently-redesigned guide is available in English and Spanish.
“With National Car Care Month right around the corner, now is the time to order copies of the new Car Care Guide,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “The guide is a valuable tool to use when discussing recommended maintenance and repairs with customers. Plus, it’s a great giveaway for customers to keep in their vehicles as a useful reference guide.”
The Car Care Council added 20 additional pages of new information to the guide to help motorists be car care aware by better understanding the when, why and how of caring for their vehicles. The free guide is available at www.carcare.org/car-care-guide.
The 80-page guide uses easy-to-understand everyday language rather than technical automotive jargon, fits easily in a glove box and covers the most common preventive maintenance occasions and procedures that should be performed to keep cars safe, dependable and efficient. It also includes descriptions of major vehicle systems and parts, and a list of questions to ask about maintenance or repair procedures. A car care checklist reminds motorists what vehicle systems need to be maintained and when service should be performed.
New sections include finding an automotive repair shop, alternative fuels, understanding the warranty, vehicle telematics, careers in the auto care industry and an expanded environmental awareness section.
The Car Care Council is the source of information for the “Be Car Care Aware” consumer education campaign promoting the benefits of regular vehicle care, maintenance and repair to consumers.
