Vehicle maintenance checks in Lexington

October is Fall Car Care Month, and a free vehicle maintenance check is being offered from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday at the Lexington County Auxiliary Building, 605 W. Main St., Lexington.

Certified technicians will be on hand to perform vehicle checks and give tips for good maintenance - both to help the vehicle and the environment.

Among groups organizing the event: Lexington County, the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control, Lexington Medical Center and the S.C. Chapter of the American Lung Association.
