I got an email this week asking me if I’d like to attend a fun event put on by Sailun Tires about car care and I jumped at the chance to learn something new! I’m slightly ashamed to admit that some of the things we were shown at the clinic are things that I really should have already known, since I have been driving for over 10 years. Things that I usually take for granted that someone else will take care of for me. I’m grateful now that I got to attend the clinic and feel more confident in my abilities and knowledge to properly care for and maintain my own vehicle.
Since I’m a glutton for punishment, I decided that it would be a good idea to take the whole family out to Coast Tire for the event. Thank God for Nick, is all I can say! While Ben sure was interested in the snacks, sandwiches and cars all around, his 2 year old self wasn’t up for listening in on the learning portion of the hour!
After having a little snack, we were brought into the garage for an up close and personal look under the hood of a vehicle where we got to see first hand where and how to check the oil, refill windshield washer fluid, check the power steering fluid and more. Like I said, I should have already known these things!
We also got to see where to find our car’s VIN number, what size tires it should have and what air pressure they should be at. I was even put to the test and had to check the air pressure right there on the spot! Another incredibly important lesson was where to put a jack and how to change a tire should I need to … and I’m sure I will some day! My first thought will be to call CAA of course, but knowing my luck it will be in the middle of nowhere without cell reception. And it’ll be pouring rain. Knowing how to change a tire is a skill that EVERY driver should know!
After our lessons, we got to find out all about Sailun Tires and their awesome line up of tires for all types of vehicles and road conditions. They offer budget friendly products that perform right at the top with the expensive brands and their focus on quality and safety is something that I really appreciate as a mom. They were happy to answer all of my questions and were kind enough to put up with a wild and crazy 2 year old the whole time we were there. They even sent us home will a little Sailun swag! A great time had by all! You can search #SailunCarClinic to see what some other people thought!
I know I got some swag, but YOU can win a set of tires! How sweet is that?!
