Owning a vehicle comes with a sense of liberation, as well as an additional list of responsibilities. To help make that list feel manageable and keep car ownership as awesome as possible, we’ve put together a collection of resources any car owner can lean on:
- Safety – The National Safety Council’s website has an entire section dedicated to “Road Safety”. This wonderful resource is chock full of everything from tips for passengers to a list of defensive driving courses and their car safety toolkit. You can find their website here: www.nsc.org/road-safety
- Vehicle Maintenance – Not everyone is a gear head, and that’s totally okay. For those who would appreciate a resource that makes understanding what makes a car ‘go’ easy to follow, the Car Care Council has you covered. Visit www.carecare.org for everything from car care resources and service schedules to step-by-step videos that are all neatly listed in one place.
- Value – Knowing the value of your vehicle is important. If you’re looking to sell it, insure it, give it as a gift or donation, use it as a trade in, or find out what the potential value of it could be down the road, you need to know how much it’s worth. KellyBlueBook.com has been allowing drivers to accurately assess the value of their vehicle under different circumstances for years.
- Useful Apps – We live in an ever evolving world, and it seems to get more hectic by the day. As a car owner, luckily, there are plenty of resources available to help make these changes easier. Take this list of best car apps for 2019 for example. Right at your fingertips is the ability to find the nearest public charging station, find your vehicle in a crowded parking lot, scope out nearby gas prices without driving all over town, and more.
With many automotive resources quickly available, there are fewer reasons to stress and more reasons to enjoy the perks of being a car owner. Happy Driving!
