LEWISVILLE, TX — Triple digit temps, potholes, and slick roads. Yeah, it’s hard out there for a car in DFW, and with summer coming and those blazing, long distance Texas road trips on the way, you better make sure your vehicle is up for the journey.

“We’re out here giving people these free courtesy checks,” said Kim Nowicki, with Firestone Complete Auto Care. “Checking their oil level, making sure the oil is still good, checking the tires, the pressure and the depth of the tread. We’re also going to check your lights, windshield wipers and top off your windshield fluid for free.”

Yeah, Firestone Complete Auto Care was out giving folks a free check-up on their car and stressed that summer is no time to be tempting fate with your automobile.

“We definitely want to stress the importance of getting your vehicle checked out to make sure it’s safe for you and for your family,” said Nowicki. “You don’t want to be the person who’s on the side of the road because you knew you were ready for some new tires and something happened. So we want to prevent anything from happening, make sure you guys are safe.”

So be proactive with your car, because you can’t change the weather or fix those rough roads, but you can make sure your four wheels keep on spinning.

Or else you just might spend the best parts of your summer vacation, waiting on a tow truck!
