Car Care Council promotes user guide for National Car Care Month

As a way to celebrate National Car Care Month, the Car Care Council is encouraging vehicles owners to order a free copy of the council’s Car Care Guide.

“Since the Car Care Guide was first introduced, we have distributed nearly four million guides to savvy motorists who want to drive smart and save money,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “With 20 pages of new information, the Car Care Guide is a must have if you own or operate a vehicle. Why not celebrate Car Care Month with a free gift for you and your car from the Car Care Council?”

Available in English and Spanish, individual copies of the Car Care Guide can be ordered free of charge by visiting the Car Care Council website at

The 80-page guide uses everyday language rather than technical automotive jargon, fits easily in a glove box and covers the most common preventive maintenance occasions and procedures that should be performed to keep cars safe, dependable and efficient. It also includes descriptions of major vehicle systems and parts and a list of questions to ask about maintenance or repair procedures. A car care checklist reminds motorists what vehicle systems need to be maintained and when service should be performed.

In addition, the guide includes pages on finding an automotive repair shop, alternative fuels, understanding the warranty, vehicle telematics, careers in the auto care industry and an expanded environmental awareness section.
