New Car Care Council Video a Must-See for Every Vehicle Owner

BETHESDA, MD--June 17, 2013: The non-profit Car Care Council has launched a new video aimed to take the unknown out of auto parts stores. Entitled "Explore an Auto Parts Store," this video opens the door to the neighborhood part store for all vehicle owners. You do not have to be an expert to get involved with car care, and these few minutes give the jump start needed to save time and money at home.

"The car plays a large role in the lives of many Americans, yet few truly understand them," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Taking on a DIY project is a great way to learn, have fun and understand your personal vehicle better. This prospect can be daunting for those who may not have worked on their car before, but our new video takes the unknown out of getting started."

Created to help all consumers understand the DIY options available when visiting a store, this video addresses finding materials for simple projects such as checking oils at home, changing wiper blades, testing the battery and, of course, fun accessories. The counterperson at an auto parts store can assist consumers in finding the right parts and give referrals to a repair shop when a job is too big.

For some drivers, taking on a few simple tasks at home can help in understanding and building a connection withtheir car. A visit to the auto parts store is an easy and rewarding way to begin the journey to longer vehicle life and better car care.

"Explore an Auto Parts Store" can be viewed by visiting the Car Care Council's website at Video Explore An Auto Parts Store .
