A bit of car care, including an oil change, can go far in making sure you have a long lasting relationship with your car in Metairie-New Orleans.
The nonprofit Car Care Council is recommending that you show some love this Valentine’s Day – to your car. The council’s executive director Rich White explains: “Don’t let your car break your heart by neglecting to take care of it. Being car care aware can add years of useful life to your relationship with your vehicle and keep you from being stranded because of an unexpected breakdown.”
The council is recommending a Valentine’s check of your car’s hoses and belts, fluids, tires, battery, and steering and suspension systems. It’s also recommending that you have the engine performance checked to “make sure the engine delivers the best balance of power and fuel economy, and produces the lowest level of emissions.”
The place to go for this checkup is, of course, Twin Tire and Auto Care. We’ve been the trusted car repair shop in the Metairie-New Orleans area for more than 40 years. We’re locally owned with three shops to service your cars and light trucks – Harvey, Hammond and Marrero. We also have a location in Harahan for heavy trucks. And you’re in luck, if you need an oil change because we’re feeling the love this time of year and we’re sharing it with you – $28.95 for an oil change. But the coupon is only good through Feb. 28.
As for Valentine’s Day, once you’ve shown your car some care, how about taking your human honey for a romantic gondola ride? It’s been shut down for maintenance but is expected to reopen this week. Just in time for Valentine’s.
