If you’re driving while you’re listening to this, maybe take just a second to look at your dashboard and see if that “check engine” light is on. If it is, ask yourself how long it’s been there.
According to a new survey, if you're like most people, that light will be on for 9 days before you do anything about it. The same survey found that the average person drives about 7,500 miles before changing their oil -- which is above the recommended 5,000 miles,.
The reasons for the procrastination? For most, it's a matter of not wanting to spend the money -- or the time -- having their car serviced.
