There's no getting around the price of getting around.
Considering the cost of buying a vehicle, insurance, maintenance, and fuel, owning a car is a significant investment--even if you only use it few times each week. While the most obvious way to avoid the costs associated with being a car owner is to forego it entirely and utilize your community's public transportation, some people simply don't have this option.
Luckily, there are many ways to drive down the cost of driving. Use these tips from the AARP Driver Safety Program to keep your car running smoothly (for less!).
To learn more money-saving and safety tips, consider registering for a driver-improvement course, such as the classroom or online courses offered by the AARP Driver Safety Program. For more information, visit www.aarp.org/driving45 or call 1-888-227-7669 (AARP-NOW).
