Cinderella Era' of Your Vehicle is No Fairy Tale

Once upon a time, buying a new car may have sounded like a dream come true, but keeping your car through the "Cinderella Era" can mean more gold at the end of the rainbow, says the non-profit Car Care Council.

"The smartest way to get a solid return on your vehicle investment is to keep your car through what we call the 'Cinderella Era.' That's the period of time after the payoff when your car is still in great shape and needs only modest repairs," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "With proper care, the typical vehicle should deliver at least 200,000 miles of safe, dependable performance, and that's no fairy tale."

By simply allocating the equivalent of just one new car payment, motorists can cover an entire year's worth of basic maintenance and live happily ever after with their current vehicle. The most common maintenance procedures and repairs to keep a car operating safely and reliably while maintaining its long-term value involve checking the oil, filters and fluids, the belts and hoses, brakes, tires and air conditioning. The council also recommends an annual tune-up and wheel alignment.

"Whether it's an oil change, replacing brakes or new belts and hoses, that periodic repair bill is a drop in the bucket compared to monthly payments on a new car," said White. "The end of the story is that a properly maintained vehicle is safer, more dependable, more fuel efficient, less polluting and more valuable."

What People Say About Us

    I called NC Auto Glass this morning after my driver's door window shattered on my way to work. Every other place I called was completely booked - most places had openings 2 days from now. They were very responsive and worked to fit me in the same day. They arrived promptly and were fast and professional, and even vacuumed up the broken glass from my car! Replacing the entire window was done in less than an hour. I am so appreciative of their service during this stressful event and was thrilled with the result. I highly recommend NC Auto Glass and will be using them for future services!

    This is the second time the awesome folks at NC Auto Glass have worked on my windshield. The first time my windshield was replaced, the second was a chip fix. The level of communication, speediness, ease of working with my insurance, and promptness on the day of the appointment made both experiences a pleasure. I live in an ongoing construction zone, so more glass dings may be in my future, but I definitely know whom to call if and when they happen!
