Women's Automotive Basics class, Honest Accurate Auto Service East
A few times a year Honest Accurate Auto Service offers a free auto basics class for women at each of its two locations. "We talk about all the fluids, tires, brakes and what's underneath the car, and we give away a little first aid kit with jumper cables and other fun stuff you'd need if you were stuck on the side of the road," said Austin Kane, owner/technician. It's a smart business tactic for the multiple year Best of the Springs winner in the Mechanic/Auto Repair category: Women who feel comfortable at a shop will return when their car needs something. Sign up on the website under "about us," then click "community." The three-hour classes for up to 30 women tend to fill up quickly.
