Women Entrepreneurs In The Auto Industry

Who Runs The Complete Car Care World? GIRLS!

At Complete Car Care in Encinitas, CA, conveniently located near both Carlsbad and Rancho Santa Fe, we know that representation matters! The auto repair industry is changing. It’s no longer an old boys’ club. Many female auto mechanics, such as Bogi Lateiner, have forever changed this once male-dominated industry. Complete Car Care in Encinitas is built for women, by a woman. Zara Kaghaz, Andy Kaghaz’s mother, is the very heart and soul of our auto repair shop.

It is Zara who sets the tone for everything we do at Complete Car Care in Encinitas. It was Zara who purchased this auto repair shop with her brother-in-law. It is Zara who did the research to help make Complete Car Care the success it is today. A former Peace Corps member and lifelong champion for the rights of women, Zara, who is now in her 80s, was recently invited to help South African women gain access to voting.

Without Zara, it is unlikely that Complete Car Care would have the high standards that we have, as well as a clientele that is over 75% women! And her son, Andy Kaghaz follows closely behind is his mother’s footsteps. Our ASE-Certified auto mechanics have dedicated their careers to making your vehicle as safe as possible. We hold ourselves to the highest industry standards. When you hand over your keys to the auto mechanics at Complete Car Care, you can trust us to take the best possible care of your vehicle.
