More People Are Driving Today
During the recent recession, U.S roadways saw a reduction in traffic. New car sales also suffered. We are now seeing resurgence in car sales and once again motorists are taking to the roads in ever-increasing numbers. Car owners are also keeping their cars longer.
As the economy improves and with gas prices stabilized (at least for now), people are once again using their cars as the primary source of transportation, especially in urban areas. People use their cars for a number of reasons; commuting to work, for pleasure, for transporting kids to their activities and for vacations.
Keeping cars longer means preventive car maintenance will become more important to consumers as a way to minimize car repairs and mechanical breakdowns. Although cars area built much better today and are more reliable, the only true way to minimize unneeded repairs is by adhering to a preventive maintenance program.
