Automotive advice doesn’t come cheap, but AAA Mid-Atlantic is giving it away during October for National Car Care Month.
It’s a perfect time for Maryland motorists – both AAA members and non-members alike – to:
· Prolong vehicle reliability
· Maximize performance & fuel efficiency
· Diagnose potential problems that may result in costly breakdowns
"Our intention is to help motorists navigate tough economic times with their cars intact," said Ragina C. Averella, Manager of Public and Government Affairs at AAA Mid-Atlantic. "Our free events are a perfect opportunity to obtain trusted car care advice before expensive repairs are necessary."
AAA Mid-Atlantic’s free 40-point check includes:
· Power steering, transmission and brake fluid levels
· Inspection of belts
· Radiator, defroster and heater
· Tires and battery
Windshield chip repairs also will be offered to motorists at no charge.
After AAA’s experts complete the free 40-point check, motorists will receive advice and a diagnostic report documenting issues identified by AAA automotive experts.
