Get Your Vehicle Back-To-School Ready.

Back-to-school season is here, which means family vehicles & drivers will be on the road more than ever. 

The Car Care Council has released a 5 point checklist that will help families get their vehicles ready for carpools, playdates, soccer games and more this fall.

“Back-to-school time is hectic for most families but scheduling a complete vehicle inspection is time well spent,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. 

The checklist includes basic but valuable maintenance and safety tips that will help keep a vehicle running safely and efficiently throughout the school year.

 “Five Point Check-Up” that should be performed by vehicle owners before the start of the school year:
1. Check lights and wipers for better visibility
2. Perform a complete brake inspection
3. Check tires for underinflation or excessive wear
4. Make sure seat belts and car seats are fitted and positioned properly
5. Consider installing a backup detection device

The Car Care Council is the source of information for the "Be Car Care Aware" consumer education campaign promoting the benefits of regular vehicle care, maintenance and repair to consumers. For the latest car care news, and other information visit:  http://media.carcare.org

Here’s to a successful and “stress-free” school year!
