Milstead Automotive Hosts the National Charity Roundtable Car Care Clinic
THE WOODLANDS/SPRING, Texas – January 24, 2019 – How do I check my oil or change a flat tire? Milstead Automotive answered those questions and more, as they again recently hosted the National Charity Roundtable Car Care class for members from around Montgomery County.
“We touch on a lot of different aspects of car care from maintaining your vehicle to what you can check yourself. Having the car on a lift makes it easy for the guys to see what is going on and where to look. We believe good maintenance is key,” noted Milstead Automotive Service Advisor Gregg Bruce who taught the class. “We also teach the kids that you can check your fluids like the oil, transmission, antifreeze/coolant, washer fluid and battery. And you can check your tires to see if they are over or under inflated.”
He continued, “your owner’s manual gives you a recommended maintenance schedule, but if your vehicle is shaking, it could mean several things and it’s a good idea to bring it in. Our Texas weather with wet roads and extreme heat makes it very important that you pay attention to your car and when that time comes, it makes sense to choose a AAA approved auto shop with an A+ Better Business Bureau rating like Milstead Automotive.”
Amy Milstead, President of Milstead Automotive Group also commented that “Milstead Automotive has been conducting young drivers’ workshops for years, and we also promote a Lipsticks & Dipsticks program especially for teenage girls and women. Our focus is safety and if we can help keep our drivers safe, then we have done our job!”
National Charity Roundtable (NCR) is a non-profit organization in which young men work with their parents to volunteer in the community serving area philanthropies. NCR offers great opportunities for involvement and for enrichment of skills as young men grow from 7th grade junior high school through 12th grade, on their way to college.
