Description
As featured on Fresh Air with Terry Gross

A do-it-herself guide to auto maintenance, roadside emergencies, and the real scoop on how women can get honest car service at the garage, from engineer turned auto mechanic and award-winning entrepreneur Patrice Banks.
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.

        July 1, 2017

        Engineer and founder of the Girls Auto Clinic, Banks seeks to empower women through their cars. In this book, the author guides women (and men) in what they need to know about how their vehicles work (e.g., the function of alternators and timing belts) and what to do to keep them running well (e.g., regularly check the oil and coolant). Banks throws in tips for how to stock the glove compartment and avoid being overcharged at the repair shop, as well as what action to take if the engine overheats. VERDICT This comprehensive DIY guide is indispensable for everyone who owns and maintains an automobile.
