Jody DeVere at Confabulous:
Cars are something I don't usually get excited about. They're big, ugly, polluting machines that can directly be blamed for much of the environmental crisis that we're going through. However, what I get even less excited about are women being discriminated against, including on the showroom floor of a car dealership. So I was really tickled when I heard about, a website dedicated to women car experts providing information to women care owners and buyers about everything automotive related.

AskPatty at Vehicle Vibes "Tips to Find a Good Mechanic"
Not all car shops and car technicians are created equal, but how do you distinguish the good from the bad?
1. Ask Your Friends, Family and Co-Workers for Referrals
A recommendation from someone you know and trust is the best way to find a trustworthy mechanic. Also ask people about bad experiences so you know which shops to stay away from. If you hear several recommendations for the same mechanic, chances are he/she is a good place to start. Keep in mind that just because a place has been recommended by a friend, doesn't mean it is the right place for you. You can also consult sites like or Ask Patty, or the Automotive Service Excellence [ACE] website
