(NAPSI)—Your car doesn’t ask for much. It’s always there
for you, getting you where you need to go. A little extra care this Valentine’s
Day-or any day-in the form of an oil change, tune-up and basic service can be
a great gift for the one who keeps you going.
“Don’t let your car break your heart by neglecting to take
care of it,” advised Rich White, executive director of the nonprofit
Car Care Council. “Being car care aware can add years of useful life to
your relationship with your vehicle and keep you from being stranded because
of an unexpected breakdown.”
The Council recommends a little tender loving auto care.
• Schedule a tune-up annually
to optimize your car’s performance. A well-tuned engine delivers
the best balance of power and fuel economy and produces the lowest level of
• Change the oil and filter
per the owner’s manual. Periodic oil and filter changes keep your
engine clean on the inside.
• Check the tire pressure
monthly, including the spare. Your car’s tires affect its ride,
handling, traction and safety.
• Have the alignment checked
annually. Potholes and other road conditions, as well as normal wear, can
take their toll on your car’s steering and suspension. A wheel
alignment reduces tire wear, improves fuel economy and handling, and
increases driving enjoyment and safety.
• Inspect the windshield
wipers and lights on the car. Lights and wipers play a major role in safe
driving, and they are normal wear items that need periodic replacement.
To help make vehicle ownership more enjoyable, economical and convenient
so you can keep your relationship with your car on track, the Car Care
Council has a free custom service schedule available on its website.
The Council is also 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.
