You’re sending your student off to college- BUT WAIT. Before loading up the car, make sure it’s ready for the many rides to and from campus, home, and the “library.” If you follow our easy, cost effective tips, your car will last through college and your student will cruise through those school years.

Stay on Schedule- On move-in day, find a local, trusted repair shop. To help extend the life of your car, it’s important to stay current on your vehicle’s service schedule and to have repairs quickly completed.

Financial Aid- Teach your student appropriate driving habits to keep gas mileage high and repair costs low. Fast starts and quick stops prematurely wear away a car’s engine, tires, brakes, and transmission. Less “lead-footing” could help you save upwards of $3,500 on a new transmission.

Fuel Up- Treat your car like your mind. Cars need the right energy to run strong and perform. Always use the proper grade of fuel and avoid filling up at out of the way stations to maintain the life of your vehicle.

Education is an investment and so is your vehicle. A+ Accredited by the Better Business Bureau, let CARCHEX protect your student and their car.
