Letter to the editor: Keep your car serviced

Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 12:01 am

If you are planning a road trip this summer, it’s important to remember that you shouldn’t just put gas in your car and go. A pre-trip vehicle check is the best way to avoid the inconvenience and potential safety hazards of breaking down miles away from home.

By conducting a thorough vehicle inspection, you can determine how road-ready your vehicle is so you can have any problems fixed before hitting the road.

Following a routine maintenance program, like the Car Care Council’s free personalized schedule and email reminder service, can help you drive smart,

save money and make informed decisions this summer and throughout the year.
