Too many of us women feel powerless when it comes to their cars. Mechanic-speak sounds like a foreign language, and the auto repair bill contains a lot of unnecessary or overpriced repairs. How do you tell if you need new brakes? How often are you supposed to change your air filter? What does that light on your dashboard mean?
THE GIRLS AUTO CLINIC GLOVE BOX GUIDE has all the answers. It’s a one-stop do-it- herself guide to auto maintenance, repairs, and roadside emergencies. Author Patrice Banks, a self-described “auto-airhead,” was like many of us: she didn’t know the first thing about her car, and was accustomed to ignoring the dashboard lights because she felt so uncomfortable taking her car in. She sought out a female mechanic and found that, despite making up the majority of car owners and licensed drivers, women account for less than 2% of auto mechanics. So Patrice took her engineering degree and became a certified automotive technician, giving auto-workshops to women and girls all across the Philadelphia area. Now with THE GIRLS AUTO CLINIC GLOVE BOX GUIDE, Patrice will empower all women to take care of their cars.
