Here’s a great opportunity for the woman out there (or the special women in your life).

Sarah “Bogi” Lateiner, owner of 180 Degrees Automotive in the Melrose on 7th neighborhood, is offering a Women’s Car Care Class on the third Saturday of every month. This is an excellent opportunity to learn a little more about your car in a female-friendly environment.

During class you will learn the basics of car care and the knowledge you need to be in control of one of the largest investments you will ever make.

For $20 per person, you’ll get two hours filled with instruction on topics like:

  • Changing a tire
  • Checking fluids
  • Basics of your brake system and cooling system
  • Changing wiper blades
  • How to talk to a service writer
  • Getting the most out of your warranty
  • How to save on gas, time and repair costs.

Remember to wear clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty!


While the September 18 class is booked, Bogi is taking reservations for the October 16 session. There are only 12 spots available for this, and given the speed that September’s class filled up, it is recommended that you register today!

You can register by emailing 180 Degrees Automotive with your name, contact number and number of people attending, or you can call the shop at 602.476.2475.
