Free car care advice available on the Internet

Knowing how to care for your car is not always simple or obvious. To do a thorough job often requires the knowledge of a mechanic. But such advice usually comes with a price.

However, free advice about car care does exist, and some people are turning to the Internet to find it. One such Web site is Consumers Digest Online, an online resource for automobile safety, maintenance and the day-to-day operating of your vehicle. The site provides extensive car care advice backed by a 40-year reputation and includes their "Best Buy" recommendations.

Consumers Digest Online offers broad automotive content about new and used vehicles, car care and safety issues. The automobile care and upkeep categories feature a wide range of information. Users of the Web site can research topics like wheel upkeep and get opinions on the best products for caring for your car - from cosmetics to oils to spark plugs. There are also archives of car care articles from years past.
