Car Care Council’s Free Car Care Guide: A Great Stocking Stuffer

How about a holiday gift idea that is free, can help save money and shows how much you care? The Car Care Council’s 80-page Car Care Guide makes a great stocking stuffer for any driver on your holiday shopping list.

“Our popular Car Care Guide is a thoughtful gift that shows the drivers on your list that you care about their safety,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “The guide fits perfectly in any glove compartment, is a valuable reference and is available at no charge by visiting www.carcare.org. The Car Care Guide offers useful vehicle maintenance and fuel saving tips to help your special driver ‘be car care aware’ and save money in the new year and beyond.”

Available in English and Spanish, the council’s Car Care Guide is an 80-page, glove-box size consumer booklet that presents automotive maintenance and repair in everyday language. Single copies of the guide are available at no cost on the Car Care Council website at www.carcare.org/car-care-guide.

In addition, the non-profit Car Care Council recommends other inexpensive stocking stuffers related to vehicle safety, such as tire pressure gauges, ice scrapers, emergency kits and windshield wipers.

“These small and relatively inexpensive items can play a big role in vehicle safety and reliability, especially when it comes to winter driving when road conditions can be hazardous and unpredictable,” 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.
