Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide – Patrice Banks
Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide – Do you feel lost when explaining your car problems to a mechanic? Do you panic when something goes wrong with your ride? Have you felt like you were being overcharged or pressured into unnecessary add-ons at the auto shop?
Fear no more: The Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide has got your back.
So many women feel powerless, nervous, or embarrassed when taking our cars in for a repair, and yet we outnumber men both as drivers and as customers at auto repair shops The time has come for us to grab the wheel and finally take control of our cars.
Filled with easy-to-follow illustrations and instructions, great tips, and lifesaving rules of thumb, The Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide will help take away the confusion and mystery surrounding cars, teach women what they need to know about how their cars work, and what they need to do to keep them running smoothly.
Patrice Banks was once like most of us: a self-professed “auto airhead” who was clueless about car maintenance, yet convinced that mechanics were taking advantage of her. Now she’s an auto pro devoted to empowering women to learn basic car repairs and knowing what to do in an emergency. So whether you get a flat tire when you’re stranded in the middle of nowhere, your car overheats, or a mysterious dashboard light suddenly starts blinking, help is just a reach-in-the-glove-box away.
OH MY GOD. This is the book I’ve needed and wanted! ever since I heard about Patrice I have been so bummed they didn’t have anything like this in Canada. I’ve never felt that confident about cars and as of right now I am looking to get my first car and I know for a fact I would be the kind of woman to avoid mechanics and the alerts on my car for as long as possible just because I feel like I would be getting ripped off or taken advantage of. And I want to take care of my car and have it last as long as possible
I haven’t yet finished this book but even with the first half its given me a better outlook on what to expect on having my first car, and what to do and felt like no question was a dumb one.
I will FOR SURE be buying this to keep in my glove box and to go over as a refresher every once in awhile. I recommend any women young or old to check this book out. It feels really good to be able to rely on yourself for things instead of trying to pass off car issues onto a guy.
