The Car Care Council has launched its new website, www.carcare.org, featuring expanded consumer information and unique functionality to allow visitors to customize their vehicle service schedules.
"Our new website is designed to fuel confidence in vehicle owners by providing them with a 'go to' place for auto maintenance and repair information," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "By personalizing the site through such features as a customized service interval schedule and an e-mail reminder service, we have developed a one-stop site to help motorists drive smart, save money and make informed decisions."
Created to help car owners take a proactive role in maintaining their vehicles, the new website provides a wealth of car care information including a customizable service schedule and e-mail maintenance reminders, powered by DriverSide.com. A frequently-updated blog shares the latest tips and advice, and the site features a comprehensive repair shop locator and a vehicle systems overview. The council's popular Car Care Guide and the new "Ask a Tech" and "Go Green" sections offer insight and guidance for today's motorist.
With National Car Care Month in April on the horizon, the site's Car Care Event Finder also has a new map feature to make it easier for motorists to find a vehicle check-up event in their area and, among the many instructional videos housed on the site, a new video entitled "Auto Service and Repair: What to Expect" takes the guesswork out of auto service by giving consumers a behind-the-scenes look at the repair shop experience.
