Community members are invited to get a free vehicle assessment at the Joliet Junior College automotive program on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 9 am to noon in the C-Building on the Main Campus, 1215 Houbolt Road in Joliet.Â
Students and automotive professors will assess each vehicle using a checklist of the most common areas of safety concern such as antifreeze levels, tire condition, lights, oil levels and more.
â€śWe love hosting this each year because itâ€™s our way of giving back to the community that helped fund our automotive facility in 2011,â€ť said Automotive Professor Dan Warning. â€śItâ€™s also a great way for the students to practice one-on-one customer service that they learn in the classroom, and for customers to get a free, professional assessment of their vehicle in a no-pressure environment.â€ť
The 17,000 sq. ft. automotive expansion was completed in 2011 as part of JJCâ€™s Master Plan, providing the program with new classrooms, a commercial service bay and additional storage. It was supported by funds from the 2008 $89 million voter-approved building bond/referendum.
