Car care event scheduled at Bob's Automotive in Wadena

In celebration of National Car Care Month in April, Bob's Automotive, LLC, is holding a free car safety inspection clinic from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 24 at 229 Harry-Rich Drive across from Sunnybrook Park in Wadena.

Professional technicians will be on hand to identify opportunities for drivers to improve their vehicle's gas mileage, enhance performance, increase safety and reduce emissions. There will also be displays such as the Rollover Simulator performed by the Wadena Police Department. Also, a special appearance will be made by local junior dragster racer Lauren Turner of Verndale and her car.

National Car Care Month is a nationwide effort to focus motorists' attention on the importance of vehicle care and maintenance. During National Car Care Month, many repair facilities and auto parts stores join local businesses, civic groups, radio stations and others to sponsor free vehicle check-ups.

The inspections include checking fluid levels, tires, lights and other system components. After the inspection is completed, volunteers review any discrepancies with the motorist and provide information about proper vehicle maintenance and repair.
