That was the message at Tires for Less as folks gathered for a hands on car care demonstration.
From oil changes to fixing a flat tire, or just checking your tire pressure, the group went through
the basics of car maintenance and avoiding being stranded.
Mechanics showed different tools and how to use them as well as stressing the importance of having an emergency kit in your car.
It's all about information and empowerment.
Organizers are hoping to hold the basic car care demonstrations at least twice a year.
