Shanahans Towing to the Rescue when "Haunted Car" Mystery Strikes Again!

Shanahans Towing to the Rescue when "Haunted Car" Mystery Strikes Again!

Elk Grove to Gold River -- Most women dread being stranded when our car suddenly refuses to start. That's why having insurance coverage for emergency road service is very important to minimize the hassle of being stranded and alone. Fortunately, my insurance company called Shanahans Auto Body & Paint that has 24-hour towing and Louie Alemar was at my side within minutes! He towed my car to Add Performance in Gold River where the mechanical wizard, Dave McDonald, drove away my car's "demon" within minutes! Dave exorcised a corroded battery cable, and I was on my way. Even though both Dave McDonald and Louie Alemar were just doing their respective jobs, they both excelled with their knowledge and A+ customer service! When you need car repairs, contact Dave McDonald at www.AddPerformance.com because Dave says, "It'sy All About the Horsepower!"
