Four people gained mobility because volunteers for Douglas County Car Care Program (DCCCP) repaired their vehicles on the first Car Care last Saturday at Koep's Korner in Alexandria.


With the support of Harold Koep and technician Tom Carlson, the volunteers were able to replace two brake lines, a rear view mirror, an oxygen sensor, a sway bar link, rear wheel bearing, an EGR valve, repair the inner driver's door panel, clean a mass air flow sensor and replace two tires.
