Do You Know the Three P’s of Auto Care?

 Preventative, Proactive, and Prepared


Car-Reflective-emergency-tripod-Parking-font-b-warning-b-font-aircraft-font-b-Road-b-fontTGK Automotive reminds motorists of the importance of the three P’s of auto care to make sure their vehicle is ready for the unexpected.

  1. Preventative: Reduce the chance of unplanned, costly car trouble by following a vehicle service schedule and performing routine maintenance at a shop like TGK Automotive.
  2. Proactive: If you find your vehicle needs repairs, be sure to address them in a timely manner to avoid more extensive work down the road. Before traveling longer distances, perform a pre-trip inspection before your journey begins so you have an opportunity to have any repairs made by a trusted technician before hitting the road.
  3. Prepared: Keep an emergency kit in your vehicle in case an unexpected situation arises. The kit should include jumper cables, a road atlas, first-aid kit, flashlight with extra batteries, water, non-perishable food and blankets. Be sure your cell phone is fully charged.

“Emergencies and natural disasters come in a variety of forms. Being car care aware and taking proactive steps in advance will help ensure that your vehicle is in proper working order so you will be better prepared if you encounter a problem while on the road,” says Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council.
