How Good of a Car Parent Are You?

If you have a car, you know that it takes a lot, and we mean a lot, to care for it and keep it running. But the long-term life of your car is also heavily dependent on how well you take care of it. Can you imagine ignoring noises under the hood until the car stops moving? While that may shock you, some people do treat their vehicles badly, which has inspired us to test just how good of a car parent you really are. 

Are you a great one? Do you never miss a checkup or a sign that something may be wrong? Is your car always clean and gets regular windscreen wipes or are you the opposite? Are you one of those people whose car sputters down the road? Do you patch up a tire 100 times before deciding to get a new one?  Does your car get dirty enough that people are able to write in the dust on its windows?

Never fear, our quiz will let you know just what kind of car parent you are. Will you get an A for doing a good job or will you get an E for effort? Or maybe you'll walk away with a note telling you that you're OK, but that you can do better? The only way to find out is to get started on this quiz!
