Used Auto Care Tips

Whether they’re driving 500 miles to their university or five miles down the road to high school, students’ knowledge of proper vehicle maintenance will improve both their auto’s safety and their personal safety as they head back to school.

High school and college students nationwide understand that being able to drive is tantamount to personal freedom, making it important for them to develop good auto autoe habits early – habits that will pay off for years to come.

That is why Firestone Tire & Service Centers developed a top five list to help students prepare to hit the road before they have to hit the books. Remembering to maintain a vehicle will help reduce repairs and help students save money.

“We hope this top five list bestows high school and college kids with a sense of responsibility for their safety, related to auto maintenance,” said Trisha Hessinger, automotive TV program host, auto education specialist and pace auto driver.

The chance that a 16- to 19-year-old will be in a crash, based on miles driven, is four times that of an older driver, according

A auto can break down at the worst possible moment and in the worst situation. The dangers associated with a poorly maintained auto are significantly increased by the driver’s inexperience.

Vehicle maintenance is critical in maintaining optimum performance of any vehicle, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration.
