Haddad Subaru Car Dealership, at 652 East Street, is offering a free Women’s Car Care Clinic on Saturday, May 21st, from 11am-1pm.
Service Manager Mary Vranas, 1 of 2 female dealership service managers in the area (the other is Cathy Foster at Haddad Hyundai), thought women in the area would benefit from a primer on basic car care. The clinic will go over how a car works, basic maintenance and a hands-on demo of how to jump start a car and change a flat tire.
“Cars have gotten more complex over time” commented Ms Vranas,“that can be intimidating and prevent some people from learning the basics. But it’s always important to have a handle on how a car works and everyone needs to know how to jump start a car or change a flat tire – no one wants to be left stranded on the side of the road.”
In addition to the free clinic, Haddad Subaru will be offering a complimentary lunch from Zucchini’s Restaurant. Everyone attending will receive a certificate of completion and be entered in a drawing for door prizes from the Hair Studio, the Cottage, Chapter’s Bookstore, Morningside Bakery and Zucchini’s Restaurant. A glove box size card, with instructions on changing a flat or jumping a battery, will also be given out.
The Women’s Car Care Clinic is limited to the first 30 women - but they don’t need to own or drive a Subaru to attend. “The response so far has been very positive and very enthusiastic” stated Ms Vranas,“we think we’ll be setting up another clinic in the fall so that the people who couldn’t attend this month will have another chance”.
Registration for the clinic can be made by calling Service Manager Mary Vranas.
