Michelle gets her tire fixed
"Michelle is veteran who moved here from Texas recently, and struggles with PTSD. A few weeks ago she hit a curb with her right front tire which did enough suspension damage to make the vehicle inoperable. We worked with our new shop partner, KC Complete Auto Service, to evaluate and repair her Trailblazer. On August, 17th, 2021 all the repairs were completed and we were able to hand the keys back over to Michelle. She was so incredibly grateful!!"

Words fall extremely short in expressing how thankful and grateful I am for how I was treated as anindividual with the utmost respect, how much everyone truly cared, and all thetime, energy, money and resources that went into not just fixing my vehicle butmaking sure it was safe to be on the road.
In addition, I want to give Mike a huge “shout out” and thanks, as well as to the mechanics who helped bring my vehicle back to life. Mike’s organization Road Worthy did a first class job on my Trailblazer to ensure I had a safe vehicle on the road. Besides doing the repairs that were absolutely required to get me back in my car, they also took the energy, time and money to fix several safety issues that would have come to the surface sooner than later. After considering and looking at the option to use my auto insurance it quickly became evident thatthe insurance company would have “totaled” my car based on the initial estimate of repairs compared to the number of miles on my car and the monetary value of it.
As with most folks, not to mention I’m single with no family, my vehicle is my life line to moving forward. I use it regularly to do life: attend weekly medical appointments, a bi-weekly support group at The Whole Person, getting groceries, picking up medications from the pharmacy, and of course to get to and from work.
The past 3 years have been incredibly hard, which started with manageable PTSD symptoms, but quickly spiraled out of control and became debilitating. I was residing in the DFW area teaching private lessons full-time and freelancing, while working on my doctorate. 16-18 months after running around in circles desperately looking for someone who could help me sort out what I was experiencing and to help me get better. For the first time in my life I was unable to work, really sick, and needing help with daily basic needs, including eventually housing. Now that my basic needs are met and I have finally found effective treatment I have been working caretaker and pet-sitting jobspart-time. As a single adult working to re-enter the working world full-time, to have a working and safe vehicle is imperative as I continue to get back on my feet.
If I hadn’t been referred to Road Worthy, my car would be un-drivable, the cost of repairs on my own would have been impossible, and the consequences of not having reliable safe independent transportation would have been devestating all around the board in my life. My feelings of gratitude and thankfulness run deeper than deep. God definitely used everyone’s talents, skills, hands and feet to bless me and remind me I am not really alone.
