Is Your Car Telling You Something?

Check engine light

Some drives are using their vehicles without knowing of potentially hazardous engine problems. Ten percent of drivers in the United States are currently driving with their “check engine” light on — driving, in effect, oblivious to the potential problems indicated by the warning light.

Cost, denial and lack of time are some of the main reasons cited by survey respondents as to why they continue driving with their "Check Engine" lights illuminated. Over one-third said that they hadn't had their engine checked because their car appeared to be running fine and over one-tenth said they didn't believe there was a serious problem.
