DARBY, Pa. — Girls Auto Clinic has launched paid car care workshops as an in-depth alternative to its free monthly auto care clinics.
"Each month, our free workshops fill up within a mere 10 minutes of the link release, leaving hundreds of women frustrated about being wait-listed once again," the dealership said on its website, noting that Girls Auto Clinic "is dedicated to expanding our car care workshops and empowering women across the nation."
The dealership touts Girls Auto Clinic Car Care Workshop Plus as the "ultimate experience for Shecanics who are serious about getting an in-depth understanding of their vehicles. It offers an incredible opportunity for you to dive deeper into the world of car care, gain practical skills and become a confident 'car girl.'"
The three-hour learning experience costs $200 and includes:
- Hands-on maintenance training on participants' own vehicles, including changing air filters, examining brakes and checking tire alignment;
- Overview of common car parts, when they need to be replaced, how to identify repair needs and the typical costs for various repairs;
- A swag bag with a collection of helpful items for the vehicle;
- A signed copy of "Glove Box Guide" by GAC CEO Patrice Banks, which provides information and tips on car care; and
- Membership in GAC's Very Important Driver program and online store discounts on "Shecanic" merchandise.
The first workshops are slated for Aug. 19 and Sept. 23.
