Every time I teach “The Why’s and When’s of Car Maintenance” folks ask me to teach a class that digs deeper into slightly more complex topics. So finally, after three years of teaching, I’m offering this course which offers exactly that. But no worries if you haven’t taken any of my other classes! Like everything I teach, this will be offered in plain language — no mechanic speak — and it is accessible to everyone who wants to gain a more comprehensive view of preventative car maintenance.

When and where will this class be held?
