In other words, the average car on the road is more than 11 years old, meaning your wheels are likely in need of regular love and maintenance. When […]
We all dream of driving fancy cars, but in reality, many of us drive clunkers. The average age of a car on the road is 11.4-years old, and 80% of registered vehicles are out of warranty. They can be a pain to maintain, or if your car’s on the older side, you might be in […]
Fuel prices are making headlines, and they’re not the “pain at the pump” ones we’ve become used to in recent years.
