Car ownership requires more responsibility than knowing the gas pedal from the break pedal and the warp-speed executer. Today’s side deal educates the auto-unsavvy with a car-care class with Green Drop Garage for $10. Choose one of three $20 classes offered by friendly, eco-friendly motor-oil pioneers to teach freshly licensed teens, non-AAA drivers, budding carsmen, and anyone who wants to learn the basics and tricks of vehicle maintenance.
- Car Care 101: Learn how to change oil, replace air filters, inspect your ride’s vital fluids, remove and change a flat, and what it takes to give your car a quick safety inspection before vaulting over a line of rusty sedans (1.5 hours).
- Car Care 102: No pre-requisites are required to gain a working understanding of a car’s engine components and simple tune-up procedures. Inspect and replace spark plugs, distributors, drive belts, and fuel filter (1.5 hours).
- Women-Only Basic Car Care: The Green Drop Garage gents provide a welcoming atmosphere for an in-depth class with extended Q&A session that covers Car Care 101 topics and the hows and whens of performing typical repairs (2 hours).
Classes are scheduled on various Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7 p.m. Green Drop also invites students to schedule their own future shop times to implement their new skills in an expertly supervised garage.
Though there aren’t any reviews of their car-care classes, three Google Maps reviewers give Green Drop Garage a perfect five stars for an affable staff and top-notch service: > * I had a winter tune up done on my car and I am very happy with it. – P diddy > * My car was making some funny noises, and they diagnosed and fixed the problem in one day. Service was friendly… – Jason
