NASHVILLE, TN--Oct. 22, 2013: This October, Direct Auto Insurance celebrates National Car Care month. In accordance with their "We'll do right by you" policy, Direct Auto is working with the Car Care Council to provide information to customers, as well as the community, concerning car care and safety. Direct Auto invites motorists to learn more about the benefits of performing scheduled maintenance. To encourage good car care habits, Direct is giving car care guides and tire gauges to those who stop by for a free quote, no purchase necessary.

"The safety of our customers is of utmost important to us," said John Mullen, president and CEO of Direct General Insurance. "Educating consumers about the benefits of seasonal car care can help them identify and avoid potential safety and operational problems."

Beyond the effect that vehicle neglect can have on safety, dependability and performance, a discovery during a check-up lane inspection can help prevent a breakdown at a busy intersection or on a heavily traveled highway, or even worse, on a deserted road far from home.

In addition to the awareness campaign, Direct Auto is offering free vehicle inspections at select locations from October 1 until October 26. Each participant will be entered to win a free Roadside Kit, which includes jumper cables, tire inflator and a flashlight.

Direct knows insurance is a necessity, and wants to make it as easy and affordable as possible. Direct makes getting coverage more convenient by offering service by phone, in-store or online.
