Tom Judson has been with AAA Car Care for almost eleven years. As a facility manager, Tom enjoys the teamwork and friendships he's built with members and coworkers over the years. When you like where you work and who you work with, it makes doing your job a lot easier.
AAA Car Care is distinctly different from other auto service centers. According to Tom, "We have the ability to do what's right for our members and customers, and can make decisions quickly." Each AAA Car Care service center works everyday to make sure our members and customers have the best experience possible.
When it comes to car care, Tom suggests being consistent with maintenance, especially the fluids and oils. Check your owner's manual or speak to an AAA mechanic to determine a maintenance schedule for your vehicle. Oil changes and fluid flushes can vary by manufacturer. For fuel savings, Tom recommends checking the tire pressure at least once a month, adjusting the manufacturer's specs, and using cruise control when practical.
Unfortunately, not everyone services their car when they should.
"We once had a vehicle come in that was 18,000 miles overdue for an oil change. The engine had so much sludge, the oil wouldn’t drain out, and the engine was trashed," said Tom. Maintaining your vehicle can save you a lot of money in repairs down the road. "If you see a warning light, or hear an unusual noise, get it checked right away at your nearest Car Care Center."
With the weather getting colder, it's important to stay on top of car care. Be sure to get your battery tested, coolant inspected, and tire pressure checked. Don't hesitate to bring your vehicle into AAA Car Care Center for a free multipoint inspection.
