AAA offers free pre-winter car checks



AAA of Northern New England offered free pre-winter car inspections to drivers in Maine on Saturday in South Portland to keep drivers safe on the roads when the snow hits.

The checks are free for members and non-members alike.

Technicians checked all fluid levels, inspected filters, hoses, belts, and tires.

AAA Maine Fleet Supervisor Erik Lowell said the technicians see a lot of tires that are worn down or not properly inflated, which can make driving in the snow difficult and even dangerous.

Technicians also checked battery levels, and met with drivers to show them what areas of their cars needed service.

"The advantage of knowing now is that your car is going to keep you going when you're out on the roads before the cold weather strikes -- hopefully save you from having to call us to come tow you in the middle of a snow storm," said Lowell.

AAA will do another round of these inspections on October 24 at 68 Marginal Way in Portland from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
