Female mechanic helps women learn about cars

Vid and story.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-eng...arn-about-cars

Mechanic Louise Baker said she was fed up with her female friends and family being ripped off or feeling intimidated when they took their cars to be fixed.
So the 37-year-old from Birmingham set up a service aimed at women.
She says her own business gives her the flexibility to work around the school run and family time.
Video journalist: Jennifer Meierhans

On the other hand: Salesman
Testing a potential buy @Bluebadger told him the auto was sluggish.

They took the next car out and returned with a very pale looking salesman.
BB hit the gas hard during the test drive 'That is how an auto should hit the gas'.
It had a bigger engine and his head hit the rest.

She grew up around cars. No smart ass salesman was selling her a duff auto.
simplyslk and LeonardoDaBenz like this.

Now they can be ripped off without feeling intimidated, that's better right.
