Car Repair Severn MD - Fathers & Summer
Car repair in Severn MD, Father's Day and Summer all come come together. Learning car repairs and maintenance from dad as a child has been common place in America. Dad's often taught us how to drive cars and trucks, automatic and standard transmissions. Dads also taught us the freedom and responsibility of having a vehicle. How we need to check the oil and get the oil changed regularly to extend the life of our cars and spend our money wisely. Some Fathers also went even further and helped to mold some of us into automotive technicians or "Mechanics" right here in Severn Maryland. Thanks to dads everywhere for being great leaders, teachers and so much more. While at the same time fathers are giving, kind and strong in building great families.
Car repairs and service in Severn MD are great ideas before the summer travel gets here, vacation trips and time spent with family and loved ones. With sons and daughters home from College it is a good tome to have those college vehicles serviced as well so that they are safe when driving far away from home. Enjoy your Summer and if we can be of service for any of your car repairs, service or regular scheduled maintenance in Severn or Fort Meade Maryland give us a call or schedule your appointment online.

Daylight Savings Time in Severn Maryland
Daylight Savings time in Severn Maryland this Fall means turning your clocks back even in your car. Many vehicles are so advanced today that their clocks are set for daylight savings time automatically. However, some vehicle's clocks are still set manually. It can be a shock the next time you get in your car and see that you are an hour behind or ahead of what you expected!
So as you change your house clocks, check and test your smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector take the time to check your car and set it correctly if needed. If you have never set it before or if you can't remember how to change the settings consult your owner's manual. Many manufacturers put their steps online in manuals or help files. This may be a good time to think about your regular maintenance schedule including that oil change you might have been putting off. With holidays and travel right around the corner come in early and be prepared so there's last minute rush. Enjoy the fall colors and be safe. Come and see us in Severn Maryland.
Thank you to all the veterans out there who have served the country. As many of us at Walt Eger's have also served (in our younger years) we appreciate your service personally. Veterans Day actually started as "Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919. Then in 1926 Congress made it an annual observance.
Finally in 1938 on Nov 11th is what we now know as our National Holiday - Veterans Day

Severn & Fort Meade MD Auto Repair Celebrates - A Happy Labor Day
With auto repair in Severn, Fort Meade, Odenton and surrounding areas of Maryland being a large part of the historical Labor force we take the time to celebrate Labor Day 2016. Labor day historically is rich in America and well celebrated.
Starting in 1885 the local municipalities started recognizing laborers and their contributions to the Nation's well being and growth. Throughout the next decade the United States celebrations grew in size, type and official status. Several states added Labor Day celebrations in their own style and timing. All were focused on giving thanks for the hard working labor that has made stronger and grow faster than most every nation before it.
In 1894 Nationwide status of Celebrating Labor Day had become official. The first Monday of September has been set aside to not only celebrate the current hard working laborers of America but to also remember the past labor which has brought us to where we are today.
We wish everyone a safe and happy Labor Day weekend with friends, family and loved ones. Be safe especially in your driving from your Severn, MD - Auto Repair Shop, Walt Eger's

Recycling auto repair Parts and Fluids in Severn and Fort Meade
Recycling used motor oil may be the most popular fluid that comes to mind but we recycle all the vehicle's fluids; Antifreeze, Brake fluid, Transmission fluid and Motor Oil are just a few on the list. The actual car parts that have failed need replaced are recycled to save our communities natural resources and energy. Even tires are not thrown in the trash bin but instead are sent to a tire recycler where they are shredded and used in various applications like child safety areas and playgrounds. Some tires are used right here in our Anne Arundel County.
We're glad to be a responsible member of the Odenton, Fort Meade, Gambrills, Crofton and Severn Maryland and an important part of being a good neighbor is being responsible with our natural resources and finding new and inventive ways to deal with what used to be considered waste can now be recycled and reused.
