Last time, we brought you a few common car myths that are still rattling around in the public. Needless to say, there are more than a few out there. Here at J. Bertolet Volkswagen, we thought it’d be helpful to talk about a few more to help clear up more misconceptions. So, here are more common car myths.
What do power numbers mean? This is a question that many consumers and drivers don’t know. When confronted with these numbers people can often be overwhelmed and confused. What does horsepower mean? What does 1 horsepower equal? Do torque and horsepower do the same thing? What’s the difference between horsepower and torque? Here at J. Bertolet Volkswagen, we thought we’d help to answer those questions.
Most everyone knows the basics of driving and car maintenance. Wear a seat belt. Change your oil after a few thousand miles. Don’t use your phone while driving. Align your tires. But there are many additional things you can do as a driver to save money, protect your car, and save your life.
Most people like to think they know what they’re talking about. To be honest, a lot don’t. In our lives a lot of information and advice is passed around as fact when a lot of it is outdated, based on misunderstandings, or is just plain wrong. These myths can be taught by our parents, heard from friends, or even read on the internet, but we often believe them because they’re so common that everyone automatically thinks they’re true. We here at J. Bertolet Volkswagen have come to your aid to debunk these common car myths.
