DSCN099920130601_124857Our first Ladybug Car Clinic was held on June 1, 2014.

We covered topics concerning newer vehicles such as regular maintenance, road safety, and how to talk to your automotive technician.

Each lady received an A/C Delco Knowledge is Power handbook, a Ladybug T-shirt, and a gift bag. We had a wonderful luncheon, and Dave answered many questions that the ladies had during a very interactive discussion.

It was a great turnout!

Bug Check

Dave May's Famous Bug Check Preventive Maintenance

That’s why he created his famous “Bug Check,” a thorough inspection of your vehicle’s systems and their components by certified ASE technicians. We’re looking for BUGS before they leave you stranded on the side of the road!
