making simple car repairs on your own
My husband was nice enough to teach me how to do a lot of things to keep my car running well without having to rely so much on him or our mechanic. This all started when I couldn't get him to change the oil on my car after buying the filter and oil to do it. Weeks had passed and he still hadn't changed my oil, so I went online, looked up a video about how to do it, and got busy doing it myself. An hour later, my oil was changed and he didn't have to do a thing. If you are interested in learning how to do things to your car on your own, my blog is the place to start.
Many car owners take advantage of the convenience of adding roadside assistance coverage to their auto insurance policy. It's usually a pretty affordable addition, and it's a good thing to have. However, buying roadside assistance coverage through your insurer isn't always the best idea. You should actually purchase roadside assistance service through an independent party instead. Here are a few reasons why it's best to opt for third-party instead of insurance company roadside assistance.

Whether you use your truck or SUV for hunting, fishing, camping, or everyday commuting, if you are considering using it to travel off road there are things you can do to help it perform better and ensure you get where you are going and back. Off road or off-highway travel is different than driving on the paved roads. The demands of the vehicle are much higher and if the vehicle is not properly equipped, you may damage the truck or breakdown in the middle of nowhere.
No one asks to be involved in an accident, but it is an unfortunate thing that happens to be the best of people at some point in their lives. After all, there are millions of people driving on the road every single day, and the majority of them are distracted by one thing or another, making a crash here or there inevitable. Some accidents are minor, while others are more severe.
