On Tuesday, January 10, Mercedes-Benz of Grapevine, a part of the Avondale Dealerships family, hosted a basic car maintenance class at their 1300 Texan Trail location for young teenage women from the National Charity League – Southlake Chapter.
After a welcome and introduction by Zach Gilbert, general manager of Mercedes-Benz of Grapevine, shop foremen Ryan Beck and Geoff Fisher covered topics like vehicle safety, driving etiquette and roadside assistance. The teens also learned what to do when you get pulled over, how to change a tire, jumpstarting a battery, and what key items to keep in your vehicle. This was a great learning opportunity since most of the girls are 15 to 16 years of age and are just beginning to drive.
“Teaching basic car maintenance to teenagers to ensure they are safe on the road and their car stays in tip-top shape is a very important life lesson,” states Gilbert. “Mercedes-Benz of Grapevine is honored that we can help National Charity League and other teens assume greater responsibility for their car.”
Getting their own car is a right of passage for many teenagers. After getting a license and selecting the right car, the next step for them is to learn how to conduct simple car maintenance. In the end, keeping a car maintained can go a long way toward keeping it–and teen drivers–safe on the road.
