Chevrolet Certified Service Rescue Squad Plays Babysitter at Woodward
This weekend marks the 2014 Woodward Dream Cruise on Woodward Avenue in Detroit, when car enthusiasts across the nation will gather to celebrate some of the things they love the most: the growl of an engine, the glare of the sun on a newly polished exterior, and, of course, the company of thousands of other gearheads who share their passion.
With so many cars present, however, it’s very likely that a handful might stall, run out of gas, overheat, or something similar. That’s where the Chevrolet Certified Service Rescue Squad comes in. Last year, the squad, which consisted of five vehicles, rescued a total of 55 cars, so this year, the Chevrolet Certified Service Rescue Squad has been bumped up to six Chevy Silverado pickups.
“It’s called the ‘The Dream Cruise,’ but an overheated engine, a drained battery or a flat tire can turn that dream into a nightmare for enthusiasts whose countdown clock to Woodward starts the day it ends,” said Chris Brandt, Chevrolet Certified Service advertising manager. “No one wants to break down or cause ‘The Dream Traffic Jam,’ so Chevrolet Certified Service technicians will be assisting cruisers with minor issues that can be easily remedied.”
While the squad will be available to help, Chevy recommends that drivers remember some basic items before attending the cruise. These include charing the battery, top off all fluids, filling the gas tank, checking the tire pressure, and making sure windshield wipers are in prime condition, in case of rain.
While the 2014 Silverado Rescue Squad Pickups will be available throughout the weekend, guests can also visit two Chevrolet Certified Service locations: Fifth Third Bank (29710 Woodward Avenue) and The Vitamin Shoppe (31753 Normandy Plaza). The Chevrolet Certified Service Rescue Squad will be available to help out vehicles of all makes and models.
