Looking for an auto repair shop that you can trust to work on your vehicle is an important decision. There are a slew of repair shops out there, and it can sometimes be overwhelming to pick the right one – from honesty to price concerns to quality workmanship, there are a lot of factors to consider. Well another factor to consider is whether they are a female friendly auto repair shop. It might seem like an inconsequential issue, but it isn’t. Statistics show that 60% – 70% of repair shop customers these days are women, not men.

Realistically speaking, women aren’t looking for a spa like experience when they go in to have their brakes replaced or their oil changed, but they are looking for a few female friendly amenities. So how can you spot a female friendly auto repair shop? Here are a few features to be on the lookout for:

When it comes to cars, our main goal here at Good Works Auto Repair is to keep you safe and your car running better and longer. Often times, we teach our customers about auto repairs, preventative maintenance or other services related to your vehicles but today we thought we would look at recalls, and their impact on our vehicle and even more importantly, our safety.

Many drivers ignore recalls, don’t know what to do when they receive a recall notice or become worried or angry and don’t know where to turn. A recent article in Your Mechanic by Jason Unrau explains what a recall is and what you should do if you receive one.

A video shows two cars crashing head-on at 35 miles per hour. (Don't worry, the drivers are crash test dummies.) One car is red, one is silver.

The red car crumples like an accordion. The dummy's face collides with the steering wheel as glass flies everywhere. Then the entire front of the cabin collapses in, pushing the dummy's knees up and crushing them against the dashboard.

The front of the silver car is also crushed. But the frame of the car is relatively intact This dummy flies forward in the seat belt, but front and side airbags soften the blow. The windshield cracks, but doesn't shatter. They're both Nissan cars. The red car is a 2015 Tsuru, manufactured for sale in Mexico. The silver one is a 2016 Versa, made for the U.S. market.
 
In a crash test, Mexico's lowest-priced Nissan (left) collided with America's least expensive Nissan. The dummy's face hit the steering wheel in the Mexican model. Airbags in the American model softened the blow.

That very unofficial nine mile-per-hour “tolerance cushion” on Arizona’s interstate highway system is going away by the end of the month on certain freeway segments.

Arizona Department of Transportation, Department of Public Safety and Governor’s Office of Highway Safety are designating 63 miles of Interstates 10 and 40, and U.S. 60 as safety corridors.

These zero-tolerance corridors will see heavy traffic enforcement efforts in an attempt to reduce the number of accidents, motorist injuries and excessive deaths.

The news from ADOT came Dec. 12, the day the first phase of enforcement went into effect for two segments on I-10.
