Car maintenance is a breeze with this AAA car care guide
This free guide is designed to end confusion and help you feel in control of the maintenance of your car. It covers all the car care issues that you worry about most, and also some you never knew you should care about!
For instance, did you know that you should usually use the fresh air cycle when your air conditioner is running? It might seem more logical to use the recirculation cycle, because that air is already refrigerated, but using the fresh air cycle reduces the potential for mold build-up in the AC system.
And have you heard of a clay bar kit? Many people haven’t, but using it correctly, as outlined in the free guide, can remove dirt from your car’s exterior that even the most vigorous washing won’t budge.
30 AAA Car Care Projects to Do Yourself covers projects both inside and outside your car, as well as under the hood. You’ll learn about all of these car maintenance tasks when you read it:
