It’s reasonable to assume that about half the drivers on the road are women. But many of them (and a great deal of men too) understand little about their cars. For some, it’s enough to know when to fill up with gas, and to have the oil changed according to schedule. Above and beyond that, they rely on their mechanic to tell them what needs to be done.
But knowledge is power, and having a better grasp of how your vehicle works and what needs to be maintained will not only build confidence, but help your investment last longer and with fewer problems.
On Monday, September 17, Highland GM will be hosting a Ladies Car Care Clinic with keynote speakers Erynn Real, Dealer Relationship Manager GM Financial, and Christine Mitchell, otherwise known as the Car Care Lady. Christine has more than 28 years experience in the auto industry and is a trained technician.
During this seminar, guests will learn about the powertrain, lubrication, the cooling system and more. Practical interior and exterior cleaning tips will also be covered.
Common issues will be discussed, including those about what type of gas your vehicle needs (regular versus premium), what to do if your engine overheats, the essentials of vehicle maintenance, how your brakes work (and how long should they last), understanding roadside assistance, and what to know if you get into an accident in Canada or the United States.
With this knowledge, you can make more educated decisions and be a more confident vehicle owner.
And remember, the event is not only a Car Care Clinic, but will include information on vehicle financing and leasing.
The Women’s Automotive Information Night will take place at Highland GM, 15783 Yonge Street in Aurora. For more information call 1-866-980-8037 or visit www.highlandgm.com.
