Never lose your car's maintenance records again

Whether your family is driving around in old clunkers or new vehicles, it's really important to keep those cars well maintained. To make sure you're safe, you'll want to regularly get the oil changed and have the cars tuned up about once a year.

You'll also want to check all the tires to make sure the treads are still gripping the road, especially when it's raining or snowing. Other issues always pop up, like having a dead battery when you're far from home. Or your car's A/C needs to be fixed, or your car's manufacturer recalls your vehicle.

Each of those tuneups and fixes is a good way to keep your family and you safe. But, with each fix, more and more paperwork piles up. You'll have copies of receipts, work orders, and estimates for work your mechanic thinks you should have done.

You know what happens to all that paper. You throw some of it away, lose some of it, and stick some paperwork in folders you'll never find again. If you've ever tried to figure out if your tires or battery are under warranty, you know you can dig around and never find anything.

Which is why CarCare Automotive Software is so useful. Once you download it (instructions next page), you input information about your cars. Then, each time you have work done on that car, you input a record of those repairs.

Note: After a 30-day free trial, CarCare charges a one-time fee (see prices next page). There are free alternatives to keep track of your cars' maintenance records, such as these free or low-cost apps.
