We hope that everyone enjoyed their Mother’s Day weekend, and were able to spend it with family and loved ones. Here at McCluskey Chevrolet, we don’t just sell new and used cars in Cincinnati Ohio, we love bringing you the latest local and industry news through our blog. We are glad you are here, and hope you enjoy catching up on events happening around Cincinnati, as well as in the automotive world. With summer just around the corner, there will be a lot of fun family activities to let you know about, as well as great car news that will get you excited about your next new car purchase. Since Mother’s Day is still fresh in our minds, we thought we would share a heartwarming story with you about a mother and daughter team out of Detroit that has a unique working relationship with one another.

If you own a Chevrolet Volt, chances are Monique Watson and her mother Evetta Osbourne, helped put your vehicle together. The two work at the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly where General Motors assembles the Chevrolet Volt. Osbourne began working at the assembly plant back in 1999, and her daughter joined her in 2006. Ever since, the two have worked side by side helping to install the four-hundred pound 16.5-kWh battery packs into the underside of the Chevy Volt. They estimate having helped assemble some 80,000 Volts as a team, since the cars began pre-production back in 2009. Osbourne and Watson report having a better relationship than ever before, and has “Absolutely improved our relationship.” The two share stories throughout their day, and are able to be in contact with one another throughout each work day.

We love moms here at McCluskey Chevrolet, and think that this mother daughter team is doing a great job in Detroit with the Chevrolet Volts!
