Does Your Car Make the Grade?

As the end of summer nears, students are getting ready to head back to school. Whether it’s driving to college or carpooling with other neighborhood families, a properly maintained car is the safest, most dependable way to go.

“When your passengers are your children and their classmates, making sure your car gets more than a passing grade is extra important,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “A preventive maintenance check-up and having any repairs performed will give parents peace of mind as their children travel to and from school.”

To make sure your car gets high marks for safety and dependability, the Car Care Council recommends a 21st century tune-up be performed to make sure the following systems are in proper working order: battery, charging and starting; engine mechanical; power train control; fuel; ignition; and emissions.

In addition, the following items should be in peak condition for car pool season: tires and tire pressure; brakes; hoses and belts; air filters; wipers; exterior and interior lighting; and fluid levels, including engine oil, power steering, transmission, brake, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.

The Car Care Council also suggests that all vehicles have a roadside emergency kit on-hand that includes items such as flares, a first aid kit, a tire-changing jack, a tire pressure gauge, jumper cables and a blanket. In addition, important telephone numbers should be stored in the glove box or cell phone in case of a breakdown or emergency.

"After moving back to Colorado from California I needed to find a decent and respectable not to mention an honest mechanic. After a detailed research for a mechanic and believe me I did a research that was so in depth I made the decision to with Mastermind Enterprises. I have a 1998 Jeep 4x4 Sport, I needed a tune up it was making a Loud noise and I not knowing a thing about cars (I had a mechanic as my best friend in CA). I called and spoke to Heidi she quoted me a price and that price was in the price range I could afford, I took the Jeep in met Heidi and her husband Norm (great guy). Norm tuned up my Jeep and found the root of my Loud noise, he actually showed me. Because I am one of those type of people I need to see the reason and BOOM! There it was...I will be taking my Jeep back to Mastermind to have Norm service it from now on, I have truly been Lucky to find "My Mechanic.""
