Taking Charge of Car Maintenance

wrenchLet’s face it – it’s human nature to put things off. To make matters worse,  in this age of extreme multi-tasking it just seems like there are more and more things to do in a day. If you are like me, the things you tend to procrastinate on are the things you are not sure about or just don’t understand very well. For example, this is the time of year when my husband starts getting nervous, telling me that we really need to sit down and work on our taxes. I literally shudder.

When it comes to tires and car maintenance, for me, that’s a whole different story. Probably because I am passionate about all things automotive, but also because I understand so much about auto maintenance. The more you know about car maintenance, the more likely you will be to take charge and get things done. Not only will you understand what needs to be done, you will have a clearer picture of why car maintenance services are so important.

Over the next few weeks, I will offer a more in depth look at some of the maintenance services that need to be  done regularly: Oil Changes, Rotate Tires & Inspect for Proper WearFlush Cooling System & Replace CoolantDrain & Refill Transmission, and Tune-up & Spark Plug Replacement.

My goal with this series is not to make you an expert, but to help you understand these services and why they are important, so you can take charge of your car maintenance.
