Car maintenance for women: guaranteed no mansplaining

HerCanberra Team

How much attention do you usually give your car in the lead up to hitting the highway, other than filling up the tank?

If you’ve ever broken down and stood gazing helplessly at the ‘bits under the hood’, wondered if your tyres are safe to drive on, or blown a headlight while driving at night, we’ve got some good news.

If you weren’t one of the lucky 37 women to get their hands on tickets to our free Car Maintenance Workshop with Autoco, there’s still help at hand. We’ve teamed up with their expert auto-mechanics to present three videos focussing on essential skills: changing a tyre quickly and confidently, checking under the hood, and changing wiper blades.

And if you need more assistance? Well, the team from Autoco are only too happy to take a look at your car and help you feel more confident about driving and also about dealing with your own mechanic.
