Car Care Council Launches Web Video Series

The Car Care Council has created a web video series by segmenting its award-winning consumer video, “Auto Service and Repair: What to Expect,” into eight short episodes that will be posted to the council’s YouTube channel, Facebook page and Twitter feed every two weeks at 9:30 a.m. EST, starting Tuesday, July 31. These Car Care Clips will focus on taking the guesswork out of auto service by giving consumers a behind-the-scenes look at the repair shop experience. The first four episodes released will concentrate on finding and building a relationship with a repair shop, while the last four episodes, set to air in the fall, will highlight the actual repair process.

“After receiving many requests from industry members for individual video segments, we created eight episodes that cover the different aspects of finding and working with an auto repair shop in order to help car owners become more comfortable with the process,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “By releasing each episode individually, we are not only able to share no-nonsense tips and advice with consumers, but we are also able provide industry members with a useful tool to help them communicate with their customers.”

The episodes will be shared on the council’s YouTube channel, Facebook page and Twitter feed as follows:

  • July 31 – Finding the Right Repair Shop
  • August 14 – Do I Have to Return to the Dealership?
  • August 28 – What to Expect at the Repair shop
  • September 11– How to Communicate and Ask Questions
  • September 25 – Why Pay for Diagnostics?
  • October 9 – Buying the Right Part
  • October 23 – Preventative Maintenance is Key
  • November 6 – Before You Leave the Shop Checklist
