About NAPA AutoCare
NAPA KNOW HOW: HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW?
The Holiday season is rapidly approaching, and for a lot of us that means it’s ROAD TRIP time! Long trips can be taxing on your vehicle, which makes it even more important that it’s kept in tip top shape before you take-off.
The question is… do you know what it takes to keep up with your vehicles needs? How “car competent” are you?
Our friends at NAPA AutoCare Centers have created a quiz for you to test your Car Competency before you take the trip. Test your knowledge on basic auto care mainte-nance, and download some pro-tips along the way. We asked some of our ASE Certi-fied Technicians for 6 simple, and perhaps little known, pro-tips that will help you protect one of your biggest investments… your car!
To make this all even better, we are going to give you a $25 NAPA Cash card! This card is good at any of your neighborhood NAPA AutoCare Centers. Get a taste of the premium, friendly, certified, and guaranteed work that NAPA AutoCare Centers provide.

My boyfriend does all of our car repairs. 🙂
We try to keep the cars well maintained so we can reduce the number of larger mechanical issues.
We buy cars that have a good reputation for low maintenance and that are easier to work on. I had a car a few years ago and my mechanic told me he hated working on it you couldn’t even get to the battery with out take several things off.

Jessica P says
I use my family to help me!
When the brakes on my car went out, I saved money by having the work done by the training shop at our local high school. They only charged for parts and the cost was much lower than if I had taken it to our normal car repair shop. The students were supervised while they did the work and I felt confident that the job was well done (and have not had trouble with the brakes since). The only drawback was that they took quite a long time to do the work – several weeks, IIRC, because they had to work around the student worker’s class schedules. Luckily I was able to borrow other family members’ cars to use while it was being fixed.
