NADA Offers Free Green Checkups

The National Automobiles Dealers Association — the same people who print price guides for everything from new cars to snowmobiles — is urging new car and truck dealers to to offer free Green Checkups to anyone who drives onto the lot.

The association’s new web site, Green Driving USA, lists the spots dealers will check for you, all of which focus on fuel economy. Here’s a smattering of the dozen or so points they’ll take a look at:

  • Tire inflation
  • Air filter
  • Motor oil
  • Excess weight
  • They’ll even check up on your driving habits

The site has green driving tips, sales figures for hybrids and small cars, and a glossary of green terms, from “acid rain,” which is so 1980s, to the latest buzzwords, like “xeriscape.”
