You got to explain to kids that age stuff like:
- a car takes not only gas, but also several other fluids that if they go empty the car could get ruined. such as oil, brake fluid, transmission
fluid, water, etc
- Tell them that if they feel like something's wrong with the car or if they hear something strange happening that they need to bring it into a auto
repair place and or tell you guys about the problem so that it doesn't go years being unaddressed.
and that the number one cause of death of adults is car accidents so they need to be extra careful on the road.
Kids are stupid. I got my first car, I was like 16, i drove it for well over a year. One day I was like "hmmmm I think cars take oil too? I
wonder..." and I had almost lost the engine. it was running on no oil.
