Feb. 8, 2012 - PRLog -- Elayne Kling, who has owned a NYC based auto repair shop for 20 years, contributes her success to her brash, straightforward, NY - "take no crap" style.

(New York, NY) Elayne Kling, owner of ZP Auto, a New York City auto repair shop is here to help women who are mistreated in the auto repair world. When “The Balancing Act” morning show on Lifetime TV heard about her 20 years of success in the business and experience in the man-driven world of auto mechanics, the show recruited her as a blogger and TV show guest.  Her contribution would be a weekly blog and national TV appearance which educates and empowers women to navigate this industry.  

If you missed her on Lifetime TV, watch the segment which aired January 27th 2012 on Lifetime-

Elayne has prided herself on the special care she gives women who are often mistreated
in the auto repair world. Her approach to her business is to treat all of her customers as if they were her friends, (many of them end up being just that) and to deal with them in a straight forward style.  You can get weekly advice from Elayne by reading her blog at,   Her blog “Don't Get Wrenched” helps readers avoid the pitfalls of the auto repair world through empowerment and knowledge.
“For twenty years I’ve been dealing with women who come to my shop, worn out and desperate to get an honest answer about what is wrong with their car.  Women, in particular, traditionally get ripped off by mechanics because they come in appearing helpless and clueless when it comes to their car. I teach them how to avoid the run around of the industry with a few simple tricks of the trade.” Says Elayne.

Elayne’s repair shop not only works on modern cars but also specializes in repairing classic cars. Those cars aren’t the only vintage things that you will find at ZP Auto.  Elayne recognized an opportunity to utilize an unused office space at ZP Auto and opened “ZP Vintage Stuff”,  a small retail store selling vintage jewelry, housewares,  toys,  clothes,  bar-ware and much more.  To learn more about the store, you can read features in, here- and in TimeOut NY Magainze, here-
