Giving the gift of tender loving care to one’s vehicle will pay off in terms of dependability and performance this Valentine’s Day, according to the Car Care Council.
“When that gift translates into maintenance, motorists can expect a positive and tangible response from their vehicle in terms of dependability and performance,” said Rich White of the Car Care Council.
On the other side of the coin, consider how the car might respond if its owner had been “cheating” on it. Cheating might refer to postponing maintenance or repairs. Cheating on your vehicle may leave you stranded en route to that romantic Valentine’s Day dinner.
As with human relationships, car care is not just for special occasions and holidays. The best preventative measure is following the ongoing maintenance schedule outlined in the owner’s manual. This care helps minimize wear and catch little problems before they become big ones.
