CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A group of local Girl Scouts got some lessons on how to take care of a car. More impressive, they invited other girls to join them.

As part of National Teen Driver's Safety Week, Girl Scouts from Troop 4016 hosted an auto clinic focusing on basic car maintenance.
The goal is to help the girl scouts earn their Gold Award and the Car Care Badge.

For others, it's a great opportunity to learn the fundamentals of car care and safe driving.

"So we wanted to have a clinic so that girls who are getting at the age of driving or near driving age know how to prevent either tire wear, but also know how to change a tire in case they are ever in that situation," said Raquel Gonzales with Girl Scout Troop 4016.

On Tuesday night, girls ages 15 to 18 learned how to check a car's oil, tire pressure, transmission fluid and wiper blades.

The event was free and held at Christian Brothers Automotive Shop.
