You hear about the scary accident rate for teenage drivers, but did you know that more new drivers in Truckee and Lake Tahoe will do damage to their vehicle engines as a result of missed maintenance than will damage the body due to an accident?
Let’s face it; most young new drivers are not thinking about what it takes to maintain a car, SUV , truck or four-wheel drive when they pop in a favorite CD. But ignoring general maintenance and not knowing the signs that the vehicle requires professional auto repair service could result in a roadside breakdown, major repairs, or even a fast trip to the junkyard.
Parents breathe a sigh of relief that this is not a lecture you need to have with your new driver. Leave it to pros at Quality Automotive and Smog. As your trusted local auto care, we can help new drivers take the wheel in that Subaru, Toyota or Jeep knowing it’s reliable and safe. Join us on May 29 at 5:30 pm for Don’t Blow Up Your Car Seminar 101. This is not Dad lecturing about the responsibilities of owning an automobile. This is Quality Automotive and pro technicians laying down some basics on keeping a car performing. “It takes more than gas to keep a vehicle on the road” says Gary Gunter, service writer and young driver himself. “New drivers tend to ignore the warning signs thinking it will just go away, when in fact the vehicle is headed toward some major issues and in some cases, total failure.” Prevention and education will make the difference for attendees who learn about general maintenance and how to identify the signs of a problem needing immediate attention. Go start your engines new drivers and know that it will take you where you need to go. The seminar is $10 and all attendees receive a $10 coupon toward service. Look for the red check where you will find Truckee’s trusted local auto care.
