Do you know how to add more wiper fluid? How about the proper pressure for your tires? Can you change a headlight? Good. Then you're already ahead of most American drivers.

A recent study of 2,000 drivers in the US found that 1-in-5 couldn't check the pressure on their tires; a quarter couldn't jump start their cars and nearly a third couldn't pick out the right type of oil.
