VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (October 18, 2018) – October is Car Care Month, a reminder for drivers that winter will soon be upon us. Proper vehicle maintenance will ensure you won’t get stuck this winter. There are a few simple things every driver can do to make sure their car is road-ready for the colder months ahead.
In the past, vehicle maintenance needs were relatively simple and consistent across automakers. Today’s engineering advancements require less maintenance at less frequent intervals. Examples include oil-change intervals now recommended at 5,000 to 10,000 or more miles, transmission fluids designed to last 100,000 miles and sealed batteries that never need to have fluid added. Even with these advancements, vehicles still require routine services that are important to maintaining the performance and safety of the vehicle.
October is the perfect month to make sure your vehicle is winter ready. The weather is mild, and there is plenty of time to deal with the potentially costly repairs before colder weather sets in.
To celebrate October Car Care Month, AAA Tidewater is offering free Auto Health Checks for AAA members every Wednesday in October at all AAA Car Care Centers. In addition – they will be offering a Free AAA Car Care Clinic for the public that will include:
- FREE 15-Point Vehicle Safety Check
- FREE Child Safety Seat Installations & Inspections
- FREE Senior Driver CarFit
- Giveaways & Raffle Prizes
