Automotive service technology students at Joliet Junior College will be performing free winter checkups Saturday.
Motorists can bring their vehicles to the C-Building’s automotive lab at JJC, 1215 Houbolt Road in Joliet, according to a release.
Students will inspect each type of car for tire pressure, fluid levels, lighting and more, according to the release.
“This is an opportunity for community members to bring in their vehicles in a non-threatening environment — we’re not going to try and sell you anything — we’re going to go through a check list and look over all the common safety items on someone’s vehicle,” associate automotive professor Dan Warning said in the release.
