Having a car is as American as apple pie. Loving that car is as American as a bald eagle. Talking about that car to anyone who will listen is annoying and you shouldn't do it. Still, a certain amount of car chat is useful, because that's the best way to get your hands on the knowledge necessary to keep your car in tip-top shape. As it is with clothing and houses, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure when it comes to cars. Replacing a spark plug, cleaning a battery, or changing some oil the first time you know something is wrong - or if you're really nailing it, before something is wrong, because you have an eye on how long it's been since you last checked - is key to making sure you don't end up with a vastly more expensive problem that might put your car out of commission, expose you to danger, or cost you thousands of dollars.
How well do you know car maintenance? Sure, any old person can change a tire, but there's a lot more to it than that. This quiz will figure out if you know how to keep your car ticking along, or if you need to talk to an expert. Let's see how you do!
