(DOES NOT FULLY MATCH AUDIO)

MORE AND MORE DRIVERS ARE HOLDING ON TO THEIR CARS LONGER, IN THESE TOUGH ECONOMIC-TIMES.  IN FACT, STUDIES NOW SHOW THAT THE AVERAGE TIME THAT CONSUMERS KEEP THEIR VEHICLES IS OVER FIVE YEARS.  BUT, OLDER CARS ALSO NEED A LITTLE SPECIAL-ATTENTION.  ACCORDING TO AUTOZONE, HOLDING OFF ON BUYING A NEW VEHICLE CAN BE A SMART FINANCIAL-DECISION--ESPECIALLY IF YOU PROPERLY MAINTAIN YOUR VEHICLE, TO ENSURE THAT IT'S RUNNING SAFELY AND EFFICIENTLY.  MAINTAINING AND REPLACING KEY-COMPONENTS--SUCH AS BRAKES AND BATTERIES--CAN EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR CAR--AND HELP PREVENT COSTLY REPAIRS, DOWN THE ROAD.  YOUR BRAKES ARE THE MOST-IMPORTANT SAFETY-FEATURE ON YOUR CAR--SO HAVE THEM CHECKED ON A QUARTERLY BASIS.  ALSO, SINCE BATTERIES RARELY GIVE WARNING-SIGNS THAT THEY'RE ABOUT TO FAIL, BE SURE TO HAVE YOUR BATTERY TESTED ANNUALLY--AND CONSIDER A REPLACEMENT EVERY THREE YEARS.  FOR MORE CAR-CARE TIPS, GO TO "AUTOZONE"-DOT-COM-SLASH-"CAR-CARE-RESOURCES".
