When it comes to New Orleans auto care, that old saying IS true: An ounce of prevention IS worth a pound of cure.
Now that the kids are back in school, things are settling down to a routine. Picking up. Dropping off. Sports. Dance and other lessons. Car pooling. You know the drill. Now that you have the rhythm down pat, it's time to make sure nothing happens to disturb it.
That's why it's a good time to get some preventive auto care done on your car.
Rich White, executive director of the nonprofit Car Care Council explains: "“When your passengers are your children and their classmates, making sure your car gets more than a passing grade is extra important. A preventive maintenance check-up and having any repairs performed will give parents peace of mind as their children travel to and from school."
The council adds:
"To make sure your car gets high marks for safety and dependability, the Car Care Council recommends a 21st Century tune-up be performed to make sure the following systems are in proper working order: battery, charging and starting; engine mechanical; power train control; fuel; ignition; and emissions.
"In addition, the following items should be in peak condition for car pool season: tires and tire pressure; brakes; hoses and belts; air filters; wipers; exterior and interior lighting; and fluid levels, including engine oil, power steering, transmission, brake, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant."
Not only is it a matter of safety, it's a matter of economics. Preventive maintenance can help you avoid big repair bills later on.
