HELENA- Automotive group AAA is looking to help folks get their vehicles ready for winter.
AAA will be offering up free 40-point vehicle inspections and Child Passenger Safety inspections on Saturday, October 6 at the AAA and Kmart parking lot on North First Street in Hamilton from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
"Winter in Montana is not for the faint of heart," says AAA Spokeswoman Kaelyn Kelly. "The extreme cold is difficult on people, let alone on our vehicles. Getting a vehicle prepared for the harsh conditions to come helps ensure it will continue to run smoothly and safely in the cold and snowy months ahead."
AAA approved auto repair shop technicians will check for a variety of things under the hood, including lubricant and fluid levels, belt and pump wear, and hose leaks during the event. AAA auto glass technicians will also be on hand to perform free windshield rock chip repairs.
Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians will also be available to provide safety seat inspections and to talk to caregivers about how to keep their little ones safe on the road, according to a news release.
