FORT COLLINS, Colo. – April 12, 2017 – Houska Automotive, a family-owned and community-focused automotive shop in Fort Collins, invites northern Colorado women to attend its semiannual Women’s Car Care Clinic on Saturday, April 29, from 10 a.m. – noon. The clinic will be held at Houska Automotive’s location, 899 Riverside Ave. in Fort Collins.

The goal of this free car care clinic is to educate women on auto repairs and maintenance in a safe and comfortable setting. Houska’s friendly and experienced mechanics will provide valuable knowledge on the subject, while giving women the opportunity to ask specific questions about particular vehicles and become more familiar with procedures.

“The days where only men had to be educated on auto maintenance are long gone,” said Jennifer Houska. “We know how important it is to give women the right skills and education so that they feel comfortable taking care of their own vehicles.”

Topics covered at the Women’s Car Care Clinic include:
1. What the different dashboard lights mean
2. Vehicle maintenance indicators (mileage intervals, tune-ups, fluids breakdown)
3. Important safety items on vehicles
4. Different types of motors
5. Winter driving
6. Emission laws
7. Automotive certifications (know what training your technician has and what it means)
8. Find out what your shop is doing to be “green”

The morning will also include light snacks and giveaways. Women are encouraged to sign up early by calling 970-482-0156.
