TPMS Checking Your Pressure
Newer model vehicles are equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) to warn drivers that at least one of their tires is underinflated. The dashboard light looks like an exclamation point inside of a horseshoe and, if illuminated, should be addressed immediately.
It's Time for an Oil Change
Performing oil changes at the routine intervals outlined in the owner’s manual is one of the least expensive, yet effective, ways to keep an engine running at peak performance and extend the life of the vehicle. The Car Care Council provides useful information to help you understand the importance of regular oil changes.
Your Vehicle's Warranty
It’s a common misconception that only car dealers can perform the routine maintenance and repairs on a newer vehicle that is under warranty. The Car Care Council outlines the truth about vehicle warranties and assures consumers that they can have routine repairs performed by their local independent repair shop or do the work themselves without affecting the warranty.
