It’s not too late to order copies of the new Car Care Guide in time for National Car Care Month in April, according to the Car Care Council. The guides can be easily ordered by visiting www.carcare.org.
“The Car Care Guide is a valuable tool for shop owners, counterpersons and technicians to use when discussing recommended maintenance and repair with their customers,” said Rich White, executive director of the Car Care Council. “With National Car Care Month right around the corner, many companies are ordering the guide for their customers to build knowledge and confidence at the point of sale.”
The 56-page guide fits easily in a glove box and explains the nine most common preventive maintenance procedures and repairs that need to be performed to keep cars operating safely and reliably, while maintaining their long-term value. It also includes a list of questions to ask when these maintenance or repair procedures are being performed on a car.
To further familiarize motorists with their vehicles, the guide has clear, concise descriptions of 12 major vehicle systems and parts. A Car Care Checklist reminds motorists what vehicle systems need to be maintained and when service or repair should be performed.
The Car Care Council is the source of information for the “Be Car Care Aware” consumer education campaign on behalf of the automotive aftermarket industry. The purpose of the campaign is to provide timely and accurate information about the benefits of regular vehicle care, maintenance and repair to consumers.
