Young Women Fight The Odds to Become Automotive Mavens

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Dec 7th, 2006 9:19pm

If someone told you that your high school was filled with students and only 6.6% of those students were female, would you be outraged? Or possibly afraid to attend? Only 66 girls out of 1000 males in a school? Can you imagine how much bra-strap snapping must be going on? Well at Automotive High School in New York City is a public high school in Brooklyn devoted to training New York City’s youth to work on cars. The ...

Live From The L.A. Auto Show: VW Tiguan Growls Into The Spotlight

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Dec 7th, 2006 7:01pm

Just look at it. Doesn’t look like a Tiger? Well, maybe it’s a combination of the name “Tiguan” and the orange and black color scheme, but we still think it has cat-like qualities to it. I have a feeling this one doesn’t just sit around and purr. The new Tiguan concept is super fun to look at and extra nice inside. The orange accents in the tire that match the paint scheme is a riot and we ...

Live From The L.A. Auto Show: Save Bucks With The Ford Edge!

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Dec 6th, 2006 8:03pm

We all like saving a little cash, and the new 2007 Ford Edge will help you do just that. This not-so-little-it-is-tiny-but-not-so-big-it-is-a-monster crossover vehicle has a lot to offer and might not be quite what you would expect from a Ford. It has great style. Just look at that grill and the beautiful lines. It looks like an SUV instead of a minivan-SUV mush, like many crossovers do. It caught our eye while we ...

Functionality on a Budget: 2007 Mazda5 Touring

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Dec 6th, 2006 8:02pm

by Kristen Varela of MotherProof When flipping though the pages of a parenting magazine (whose subscription I’ve been meaning to cancel since my kids are now 4 and 6 and I no longer need or want to read about great new birthing techniques every month), I became intrigued by adds for the Mazda5. What is it? A miniaturized version of a mini-van? A big sport wagon with sliding doors and room for 6?  My curiosity ...

When Non-Negotiables Aren’t

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Dec 5th, 2006 6:01pm

by Tammy Lenski A few weeks ago, my husband Rod bought a new car. I think it’s fair to say he doesn’t much enjoy the prospect of negotiating the purchase price and so he tends to drive a car for a very long time before he feels ready to go through the process again. I, on the other hand, relish a chance at negotiation, and so I’ve had to work hard to keep my nose out of his planning, pondering and ...

Live From The L.A. Auto Show: Yaris vs. Yaris

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Dec 4th, 2006 8:26pm

The Yaris. It is pretty much the most adorable car ever built. Ever. Not only are they super cute when you see it in person, but Toyota made the ingenious decision to give the cars personalities of rambunctious toddlers in their commercials. This only makes them more adorable. While strolling through the Auto Show this week, we decided that the Yaris was so cute that you wanted to pinch its cheeks.  'Nuff said. So check ...
