The July session shines the headlights on “Cracking the Car Code” focusing on car care and auto safety. During this interactive workshop, host Jen Miller and members of Team Maplecrest’s award-winning service department will guide the group in a hands-on car clinic to help women get to know what’s under the hood. Speakers will address:

·       Where the car jack is and everything else you need to know to change a tire

·       Untangling the confusion around jumper cables and how to jump start your car 

·       There’s more to an oil change than a dip stick 

·       Top five things everyone should know before taking a road trip

·       Q&A – Ask the Experts their secrets to “Cracking the Car Code”

Featured speakers at the event include Reuben Lewis and Giovanni Rodriguez. Lewis is an award-winning Ford Senior Master Certified and ASE Certified Mast Tech, including Ford's prestigious 'Fix It Right The First Time," with more than 35 years of experience, with nearly half of those for Maplecrest Ford Lincoln. Rodriguez, who is Ford and Lincoln PDI Certified, has been a member of Team Maplecrest since 2013.

In the spirit of the name, Mustang Sally’s Now: Driving Women’s Leadership envisions a bold change in the traditional way women view their car buying and service experiences. Beyond that episodic transaction, they strive to help inspire a local community of women to strengthen and embrace their unique voices by mastering a variety of professional and life skills.

While many women may not want to change a tire or jump-start her car battery, knowing how to perform these important tasks gives women a true sense of empowerment, Team Maplecrest contends; and yet, many women shy away from learning these skills. To address this issue, this month’s workshop provides an opportunity to learn valuable tips and strategies that will lead to a comfort with basic car-care safety and knowledge.
