For many women, a car is a significant part of their lives. It’s important for women to equip themselves with some common and basic knowledge about their vehicles. You will be amazed at how just a few pointers about the workings of your vehicle can make a huge impact on how you deal with your car repairs.

Changing a tire may be something that you never have to do, but if and when it does happen, it will more than likely be at the worst possible moment. If the worst happens and you’re out on the road, changing a tire is the bare essential car skill everyone should have.

Shahe “Shawn” Koulloukian, owner of MAZVO Auto Car Care Center on 7th Street south of Highland, is offering a free auto care class geared especially toward women, young and old. Men are welcome, too. The clinic will take place 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11. Space is limited to just 35 people; RSVPs needed by Sept. 26.

This car care clinic will cover: How to check tire pressure; how to measure the tread on a tire; what’s involved in changing your oil; how to check fluid levels; how to change a spare tire; what to do when you break down; safety basics, and more.

The car care clinic is free and will be held at Mazvo Auto Car Care Center, 4610 N. 7th St. Complimentary refreshments and gourmet finger foods will be served. RSVP to 602-248-8711 or For more information about the clinic, visit
