Milwaukee VA Fisher House is Open!

By | Community Support, Dealer News, Events | No Comments

Since 1990, Fisher House has provided lodging for more than 250,000 families, totaling more than 5.8 million lodging days saving families $282 million in lodging and transportation costs (fisherhousewi.org). With the official opening of the Zablocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee, the continued support of the Fisher House Foundation can reach more veterans and their families. On Saturday, April 23, 2016, the Zablocki VA Medical Center had their Dedication Ceremony and were officially open and already accommodating five families.

Fisher House Wisconsin’s mission is to provide a “home away from home” for military and veteran families to be close to a loved one when hospitalized for an illness, disease or injury at the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee. The home is a 13,000 square foot facility with 16 private guest suites capable of accommodating up to 8 people per suite. Because the need is so great for this home, the Zablocki VA Medical Center is one of the largest built in the US, allowing veterans and their families living beyond 50-miles for the Milwaukee VA hospital to stay overnight at no cost (fisherhousewi.org).

The dedication Ceremony, as well as a few house pictures, can be viewed on the Fisher House Foundation Flickr profile (Dedicating Fisher House Wisconsin). More pictures can be viewed on the Fisher House Wisconsin Facebook page.

To make a donation, please visit fisherhousewi.org. Giving a helping hand is also very appreciated. Helping with fundraisers, events, and other supporting roles are a great way to give back to our veterans.

Media coverage for the dedication was covered by CBS 58 in Milwaukee and can be viewed at this link cbs58.com.

What to Do If Your Car Overheats

By | Dealer News, Safety, Service News | No Comments

Our mild spring has everyone buzzing around and excited for the summer. A nice change from our cold winters, the summer warmth is a welcomed season in Wisconsin. With more traveling in the summer forecast, cars can be more acceptable to overheating. Although rare in modern cars, overheating can still happen even to a well-tuned car. If you notice your dashboard temperature indicator start to rise or a malfunction indicator light comes on, there are few tips that can help you safely cool down your engine before it’s too late. Listed tips can be found on safetyserve.com and carcare.org.

  • Pull over to a safe location and turn off the engine.
  • Check for steam. If you can see any steam, do not open your hood right away, wait for it to cool down or you might burn yourself lifting the hood. Call Wilde East Towne Honda service center and we will get a tow truck to you.
  • Once the engine is completely cool, check the coolant (antifreeze) level. It’s usually a translucent plastic tank near the radiator. It may be a quick fix by filling it up with more coolant. You should also check to see if there is a puddle under your car if there is the coolant tank may have a hole in it.
  • If you need to keep driving, keep an eye on your coolant levels and refill it as needed. This is not a long-term solution so you should get your car into our Service Department as soon as possible to have one of our technicians make the necessary fixes.

You should always get your car checked out if you see a rise in your temperature indicator. Visit our Service Department and our friendly Service Advisors can help you get your car back up and running.
