Balanced/changed four tires
Replaced steering gear

Replaced brake shoes (both sides, front)
Replaced hood shocks or struts

Under the hood, this SUV has a 3.5-liter, V6 engine with automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive. It’s got all the bells and whistles you’re looking for in an SUV, including cruise control, power mirrors, and a power moon roof, as well as power door locks and windows. It also has standard seating for five, with an average fuel economy of 19-20 MPG combined. Plus, with luxury heated leather seats, you’ll stay warm all winter long driving this SUV!

the Extreme Car Makeover Project
Every year, 55 KRC and Dale Donovan partner with Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries for the Extreme Car Makeover project. Why Because they are absolutely committed to and inspired by Goodwill’s mission of service to the community. Dale recently shared his thoughts on how important Goodwill’s employment and training programs are – not only to individuals with disabilities and military veterans they directly benefit but also to the Greater Cincinnati Community. “Once you have a chance to see Goodwill’s mission in action,” said Dale on his radio show, “you will be excited like I am to be a part of this great organization.”
