Nov. 23, 2022—Almost half of the cars on the road are behind on maintenance, according to data from CARFAX as reported by Kris 6 News.

As the Thanksgiving holiday weekend nears, hitting the road is top-of-mind for many drivers. But recent CARFAX data has revealed "that nearly half of the vehicles that are on the road are overdue for a tire rotation and 30% of vehicles are behind on oil changes," according to Kris 6 News. 

Additionally, this data says that one in five cars have an open recall that needs fixing. Staying up-to-date on maintenance can help drivers avoid a headache this weekend and in general. But that's not the only thing on the mind of drivers as they embark on travel. 

Kris 6 News, which is a local news provider in the Corpus Christi area of Texas, spoke with a driver named Tristan Quintanilla. As he filled up at the gas station, he told Kris 6 News that he checks his car before every trip but he tries to be hyper-aware on highways as well to avoid situations like hydroplaning in inclimate weather.
