BETHESDA, MD--Sept. 24, 2013: October is Fall Car Care Month, the perfect time to be car care aware and take preventative maintenance steps so your vehicle doesn't become a money pit later, says the Car Care Council.

"If you're like most Americans, you're busier than ever and you may not think twice about putting off vehicle maintenance. However, neglected auto care almost always means much higher costs down the road in the form of more extensive repairs or lost resale value," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Following a routine maintenance schedule like the one found on the Car Care Council's website can help you drive smart, save money and make informed decisions."

Created to help car owners take a proactive role in maintaining their vehicles, the Car Care Council's website provides a wealth of auto care information, including a free personalized service schedule, tips for going green and videos to get started on do-it-yourself car care.

"Whether you visit a professional service technician or do it yourself, starting a preventative maintenance program with a thorough vehicle inspection this fall can help keep your car safe and dependable for the harsh winter months ahead," said White.

The Car Care Council is the source of information for the "Be Car Care Aware" consumer education campaign promoting the benefits of regular vehicle care, maintenance and repair to consumers. For a copy of the council's Car Care Guide or for more information, visit Car Care .
