With five shopping days to go before the big gift day, you’re running around madly trying to squeeze in holiday events and non-holiday happenings like the Saints game while you’re searching for the perfect gift for everyone on your list.
If you’re looking for a non-traditional gift, the nonprofit Car Care Council has a suggestion – a six-point vehicle check for you or someone else.
A six-point vehicle check is a gift that will keep on giving, both in better vehicle performance and fewer unexpected repairs this winter, the council says.
“Why not wrap up the holiday season with a gift for you and your car? Inspecting six key systems ahead of time can save you the headaches and cost of an emergency breakdown later,” said Rich White, the council’s executive director. “Regular vehicle maintenance is always more convenient when you’re doing it on your own schedule. By taking a few easy preventive maintenance steps now, you can have more confidence when driving in severe winter weather.”
Those six points: battery, antifreeze, brakes, tires, oil and wiper blades.
During the winter, the council also recommends that, if you’re due for a tune-up, consider having it done before winter sets in. Winter magnifies existing problems such as pings, hard starts, sluggish performance or rough idling.
The best place to have that six-point vehicle check done is at Twin Tire Auto Care.
