Getting To Grips With Essential Car Maintenance

When I got my first car twenty years ago, I was clueless when it came to maintaining it and keeping it in a roadworthy condition. As a result, I had to pay for costly repairs that could have been avoided if the car had been looked after better. I learned my lesson and started reading everything I could about basic car maintenance.

I blog about a variety of topics, such as troubleshooting uneven tyre wear, the benefits of regular servicing and maintaining your car during the winter months. I hope you find my blog useful.

Could it even herald a return to the bench seat era of the 1950s? Okay, perhaps that last question is a bit of a stretch, but there are certainly trends emerging in the auto industry that could remove those awkward and barely functional gear shift levers that live in between our car's front seats.
