My Foreign Affair 360 : The Oil Change

The car service center then tells them or gives them a warning about the potential issues that may have come up when they run your car through a service checklist. Not getting a second opinion on car maintenance This is usually the first thing you notice about their story. They didn’t even get a second or third opinion on the potential car issue.

Why you should get new headlights in your European car

Car headlights have been around since the beginning Headlights have been on cars almost as long as cars have been popular, starting in the late 1880’s. It was apparent, even from the start, that people would be driving at dawn, dusk or dark. Being able to see where you are driving in less than optimal light was a need from the very beginning, mostly for safety purposes. Headlights and car accidents In fact, driving at night is still a large issue when driving a car. Did you know that nearly half of all traffic related fatalities occur at nighttime, even though only 25% of total traffic happens at night. This represents a large number of car accidents.
