Car Care Guide available on-line

Bethesda, Maryland – A new Car Care Guide for motorists turns technical jargon into easy-to-understand language, taking the mystery out of vehicle maintenance and repair. The free guide, published by the Car Care Council, can be ordered through the Council’s Web site at

The guide explains the nine most common preventative maintenance procedures and repairs that need to be performed to keep cars operating safely and reliably; it also includes a list of questions to ask when these operations are being done on a car.

“The first step toward a safe and dependable vehicle is to be car care aware: to understand your vehicle, what kind of care it needs, when it needs it and why,” says Rich White, executive director of the Car Care Council. “The easy-to-follow guide provides this information, cutting through the technical language and terms that often confuse or prevent motorists from really taking good care of their vehicles.”
