Three Ps of Auto Care: Preventative, Proactive, Prepared

Tags : 

In recognition of National Preparedness Month in September, the non-profit Car Care Council reminds motorists of the importance of the three Ps of auto care to make sure their vehicle is ready for the unexpected.

1. Preventative – Reduce the chance of unplanned, costly car trouble by following a vehicle service schedule and performing routine maintenance. 

2. Proactive: If you find your vehicle needs repairs, be sure to address them in a timely manner to avoid more extensive work down the road. Before traveling longer distances, perform a pre-trip inspection before your journey begins so you have an opportunity to have any repairs made by a trusted technician before hitting the road.

3. Prepared: Keep an emergency kit in your vehicle in case an unexpected situation arises. The kit should include jumper cables, a road atlas, first-aid kit, flashlight with extra batteries, water, non-perishable food and blankets. Be sure your cell phone is fully charged.

Emergencies and natural disasters come in a variety of forms. Being car care aware and taking proactive steps in advance will help ensure that your vehicle is in proper working order so you will be better prepared if you encounter a problem while on the road.

Since we began using a Digital Vehicle Inspection, customer communication – and repair work authorizations – have moved into the fast lane. The response from customers after receiving color-coded digital inspections and detailed vehicle condition photos has been phenomenal.

The response I get back from people is unbelievable. They can actually see what we’re seeing. A picture is worth a thousand words. Even if your not buying everything, you can see it for yourself. In the days of simply telling customers what was wrong with their vehicles, customers may have wondered. This way, there’s no question.
