Car care seminar is just for the ladies

By Brandi Cummings - bio | email

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Move over, guys, there's a car care seminar and it's only for the ladies.

Changing the oil may not be something you want to do, but you should know when your car needs it.

"I want them to be able to deal with this themselves if the need arises," said Mike Suddeth.

For five years, Mike Suddeth has given a free class on car care just for women. This year's no different.

"The biggest thing that I hope they come out of this with is they do have a plan of how to maintain their car and what to do in emergencies," said Suddeth.

Rebecca Swanson did not have a plan before she took the seminar.

"I just knew it had an engine and a steering wheel and I got in and I drove," she said.

That's the case for many women, according to Suddeth.

"The whole purpose of the program is to make people more aware of their car maintenance and educate them," said Suddeth.

Suddeth teaches women basic car maintenance hands-on, like how to check the oil and how to change a tire. He says the class won't just benefit his business.

"They'll be able to deal with whoever provides service for that car or in some cases they can do their own," said Suddeth. "There are a lot of things you can do yourself."

The free car care seminar is at 9:30am Saturday at Suddeth Automotive on Millwood Ave.
