Good car care can defeat breakdowns before they happen

Gazette staff April 27th, 2011

April is National Car Care Month, but taking care of your vehicle is important year-round. After all, according to CarCare.org, 72 percent of all vehicles failed at least component of the safety inspection process during a one-month study.

The organization noted the following:

—Low fluid levels can affect driving performance and damage internal parts.
—Most breakdowns can be avoided by periodic checks of belts and hoses, and replacements of such when worn.
—A dirty air filter can decrease gas mileage.
—Low tire pressure decreases gas mileage and tire life. —Gazette staff
