BOUND BROOK, N.J. (April 3, 2014) — STS Tire & Auto Centers is offering a complimentary 28-point tire and vehicle inspection throughout April in support of National Car Care Month.
The dealership’s inspection regimen includes checking tires, brakes, headlights, fluid levels, the air filter and battery, belts, hoses and more.
“Extremely severe winter weather conditions truly gripped the Northeast where all of our full-service car care centers are located,” said STS President Bill Caulin. “Now that spring is here, we encourage our customers and neighbors to visit and have their cars inspected by our highly skilled technicians before getting back out on the road.”
STS’s store managers have seen a significant increase in steering, suspension, and tire and wheel damage, Mr. Caulin said, noting that potholes can dislodge wheel weights, causing high-speed wheel shimmy or out-of-alignment conditions.
“These critical systems must be checked,” he said. “Routine maintenance—especially after such harsh weather—is truly key to helping prevent expensive unanticipated repairs.”
National Car Care Month, an initiative of the Car Care Council, is a nationwide effort to focus motorists’ attention on the importance of vehicle care and maintenance, Mr. Caulin said.
Employee-owned STS will offer the inspections at its 150 locations in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. For additional information and to find a location, visit the dealership’s website.
When is the last time you attended one of the national tire industry trade shows, such as SEMA, ITEC or the North American Tire & Retread Expo?
|I try and take in at least one show a year.||
|I usually attend one every few years.||
|There are so many tire maker and distributor meetings each year, I don’t see a need to attend one of the national shows.||
|I don’t find value in these shows and haven’t been to one in years.||
|I’d like to but I am too busy||
