The cars that we use are important to us because they help us to travel from place to place. It is how we can get to work safely and take our children to school and their ballet classes.

Check Engine Light
There are many lights on the dash of our car and usually we don’t pay much attention to them. Unless it is the gas light that comes on.

Some older cars have faulty check engine lights that never go out.
It is important to know how to remove tires. This is something that everyone should know – including your teenager – should they ever drive the car. This is in case they have a flat tire in the middle of nowhere. Make sure that anytime you go on a road trip you bring the necessary tire removal tools with you and are able to do it on your own or work together with whoever you are with.
