Welcome to Team Bowman

13KTBZELTCH332Bowman Chevrolet is proud to announce we expanded! Randy Hosler Buick GMC closed the end of April 2013. We were happy to hire many of those employees at Bowman in our main office, body shop and service department. We were also lucky to acquire the Randy Hosler building and open a new Clarkston used car sales and service dealership called:  Sellers Renew Auto Center.

We would like to officially welcome some of the Hosler Buick GMC familiar faces that are now at Bowman Chevrolet:

Service Button LinkedInBarb Jockwig, a Randy Hosler employee for 13 years, joined our office team as a biller. Her experience at Hosler made an easy transition into our team, and she has been welcomed to our busy hub with open arms.

Larry Szulborski spent a few months at Hosler before they announced their closing, and we were happy to offer him a position as our Body Shop manager at both our Bowman and Sellers Renew locations. With 17 years of experience in the industry, Larry is sure to be a viable asset to our organization.

Our service department was rewarded threefold, bringing in three new ASE Master Certified technicians ready to help you.

Tim Mars started as a porter at Randy Hosler in 2001. He received an Associates in Applied Science from Ferris State University and became a Master Certified technician and moved his way up the service ladder. Mars’ strive for excellence is apparent and Bowman Chevrolet is proud to now have him as a part of our team.

Tommie Knight has been in the business for over 30 years. As a Master Certified ASE technician, he has a lot of knowledge and experience to offer you in our service department. Knight was with Hosler for 8 years and his service experience has been a wonderful addition to our Bowman team.

Steve Sweetman was with the Hosler team for 17 years and is a Master Certified Technician and an Advanced Level Specialist. With 26 years of experience and advanced technical knowledge, Sweetman and his big blue toolbox have brought a smile to our face and a welcome addition to our team.

Tire Tread Coin Test

RhondaIts almost summer and time to plan that vacation!

If you are planning a road trip, don’t overlook getting your car ready too. Here are some simple “self maintenance” tips (thanks to our friends at Tirerack.com) you can do to keep you car in great condition.

 

Tire Tread Coin Test 

Check the tread on your tires with this simple test:

penny-tire-thread-check-614x345Place a penny into several tread grooves across the tire. If part of Lincoln’s head is always covered by the tread, you have more than 2/32″ of tread depth remaining.

Place a penny into several tread grooves across the tire. If the top of the Lincoln Memorial is always covered by the tread, you have more than 6/32″ of tread depth remaining.

According to most states’ laws, tires are legally worn out when they have worn down to 2/32″ of remaining tread depth. So keep an eye on your tires and make sure you have them rotated.

Check your fluids: brake, coolant and transmission to make sure they are at the right level and there is no discoloration. Fluids break down and evaporate over time. Keeping these fluids at proper levels and fresh will keep your car running with optimal performance.

Oil Check

Check your oil every other time you fill up. Did you know your car may be using too much oil? That overuse will not necessarily be indicated on your instrumental panel. Most of those indicators do not monitor levels, just the timing of your oil life. The best bet is to just take a look for yourself. If you would like we’d be happy to show you how… just stop by the service department.

These 3 simple steps are things you can do at home and will help you avoid unnecessary expenses and keep your vehicle in great running condition. Hope you have a great summer!

Help Me Rhonda

Help me RhondaHave you met our Service Director Rhonda? Chances are if you have visited our awesome service department you’ve met her… she runs the place! Did you know we have over 40 people in our service department – parts, body shop, advisors, cashiers, dudes that drive and wash the cars, and of course certified technicians. I bet you think that sounds like a lot of people – you bet, but Rhonda runs that team with ease. And, that doesn’t even include the customers and cars that come in that need care and looking after.

This month we are starting a new “Help Me Rhonda” section of our newsletters, blogs and even occasional Facebook posts. Rhonda is going to share some great insights to getting cars serviced and the “in/outs” of the crack service department she runs so well. So, if you haven’t met Rhonda, stop by Bowman Chevrolet and say hi – and watch for our new “Help Me Rhonda” blog. If you have any specific questions for Rhonda send them to us at info@bowmanchevy.com or comment below and she may even feature your question.

See ya in the service aisle!

Since 2008, Rhonda Jensen has been the Bowman Chevrolet Service Director and has over 14 years experience as a Service Manager.
