Torrance, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) April 12, 2011
autoMedia.com, an advocate of do-it-yourself car repair and maintenance, announced today its support of National Car Care Month. This public awareness campaign, which receives participation from businesses and organizations nationwide, targets drivers everywhere to take better care of their vehicles. The Car Care Council supports the campaign and provides resources for repair shops to hold their own vehicle inspection events. The campaign is launched in April each year, just in time to remind car owners about catching up on needed car maintenance and repairs neglected over the winter months.
With a multitude of helpful how-to car care pages, autoMedia.com continues to provide timely and informative automotive articles that can save consumers time and money. According to the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association, consumers spent an average of $897 per light vehicle on repair and maintenance in 2010.
Many consumers don’t know what needs to be done to their vehicle or why it’s important. Consumers who get educated quickly learn the benefits of proper routine car care and how to avoid common car maintenance mistakes.
Basic car maintenance can be done at home. It is highly recommended that safety precautions and the proper mechanic tools, including protective gloves, glasses, and a fire extinguisher are close at hand for any do-it-yourself car care project.
For those environmental advocates, even basic car care can “go green.” For example, autoMedia.com offer tips for an eco-friendly approach to the car cleaning process without posing a threat to the eco system; one of the many helpful automotive articles found among the pages in the car care section of autoMedia.com.
“As a leading provider of free online resources for step by step, do-it-yourself car care maintenance and repair, we are proud to contribute to this consumer education program,” noted Marshall Flemion, president, autoMedia.com. “The benefit of regular vehicle care provides for a better performing vehicle and fewer unexpected repairs.”
