Cars are a necessity for some, and an added luxury for others. There is no doubt that they have been around since the 1900s and have been a major part of our lives ever since.
Why do we need cars? Cars allow us to travel from place to place more quickly than we could otherwise on foot or by public transportation. They also provide easier access to destinations in rural areas not serviced by public transit systems. The need for cars has grown with population growth, as well as with the increased popularity of suburban living which requires longer commutes between homes and places of employment.
Why do we love our cars? The car for me defines my freedom. It gives me the ability to go where I want to go and when I want to go. The car is also a lifeline for me. It has helped me to get to places where I would have never been able to otherwise.

How to maintain a car? If you have owned a car for a while you know that a car needs regular maintenance. You may know that it is important to get your oil changed regularly, but do you know which oil is best for your car? You may know that it is important to get your breaks checked periodically but do you know which breaks perform the best? You may know that your car has low tire pressure when you see the warning light on your dashboard but do you know the optimal tire pressure for your car? These are the kind of questions I would like to explore here at Car Independent.
