DDD Mom's day eventWould you like to do something really nice for that special someone in your life this Mother’s Day weekend? Get their car a free leak check from a Certified Automotive Instructor, Saturday, May 13, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Don’t Drip and Drive team members, Seattle Public Utilities and South Seattle College will host the first-annual “Check Out Mom’s Car!” event.

Make an appointment to bring your vehicle to South Seattle College’s Auto Tech garage facilities. Email SPU_EPTResources@seattle.gov or call 206-615-1222 to schedule your 30-minute consultation for Saturday, May 13.

During your appointment you’ll receive a free, 30-minute leak and safety check. Participants can ask questions about car leaks in Spanish or English.

Drivers also get a free vehicle maintenance check kit along with coupons for car washing, car repair, and more. Enjoy free donuts and coffee during your visit while they last.

“People appreciate being able to talk to a mechanic about car problems and cost without sales pressure,” Bill Malatinsky, Seattle Public Utilities Don’t Drip and Drive partner. “And helping out a mom at this workshop – priceless.”

“Talking to a mechanic before taking a vehicle in helps owners feel more confident and informed about car problems,” said Justine Asohmbom, Washington State Department of Ecology’s Don’t Drip and Drive partner. “People get so excited learning about how their car works. They really have a good time at these workshops.”
