The Car Care Council, a national non-profit consumer group, will host a free vehicle check-up event for Midland-area car owners on Sunday, Oct. 7 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the parking lot of Dow High School at the corner of North Saginaw Road and West Main Street. The inaugural car care event will be held in conjunction with the 49th Annual Northwood University International Auto Show.
"October is Fall Car Care Month and to celebrate, we are hosting a free check-up event for car owners in and around Midland," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "This fun community event is an excellent opportunity for motorists to have their vehicles checked by professional service technicians, ask questions of the techs and learn more about their vehicles, all in a no-cost, no-pressure environment."
The free car care event will feature professional technicians performing vehicle inspections including check oil and coolant levels, tire pressure and also look at filters, hoses, belts and lighting. Motorists will have the opportunity to ask questions of technicians about vehicle operation and can talk with aftermarket experts hosting educational demonstrations showing worn vs. new parts like wiper blades, hoses, belts, tires, brake pads and rotors, and dirty vs. clean engine oil and fluids. Gift bags with Car Care Council literature and giveaways will be given to all attendees, including a free copy of the council's popular Car Care Guide.
