CarPrices.ae Team / Posted On - August 24th 2023

The workshop exclusively organised for Al-Futtaim’s women employees and invited guests covered basic car maintenance to improve road safety for all.


To mark Emirati Women’s Day, Al-Futtaim Lexus hosted an automotive safety and car maintenance workshop in collaboration with Huda Al Matroushi, who holds the distinction of being the UAE's first female mechanic and garage owner. The event took place at the Al-Futtaim Lexus DIP showroom and aimed to equip drivers with essential car maintenance skills and safety knowledge, thereby enhancing vehicle safety and ensuring a stress-free driving experience.


Huda Al Matroushi is a trailblazing figure in the field of automotive mechanics in the UAE. Notably, she owns and operates her garage, Imex Car Service, situated in Sharjah's Industrial Area 1. Her remarkable journey gained significant recognition when His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Abu Dhabi, personally extended his congratulations to her. His gesture included having one of his vehicles serviced at her workshop, a testament to her exceptional accomplishments.


During the workshop, participants received comprehensive guidance on a variety of car maintenance tasks, designed to be accessible to drivers of all levels of mechanical expertise. These topics encompassed essential checks like monitoring oil and coolant levels, ensuring tire safety, assessing battery health, and more. The workshop also delved into the interpretation of dashboard warning indicators and offered valuable advice on car maintenance in the hot summer months.



Al-Futtaim Lexus is steadfast in its commitment to promoting road safety for all road users. This commitment manifests through various initiatives, such as community programs aimed at educating car owners about safety, providing complimentary tire inspections to drivers, collaborating with UAE authorities to identify and confiscate counterfeit automotive parts, and other proactive measures. By forging partnerships and cooperation with all stakeholders, the goal is to create a happier and safer environment for all citizens and residents of the UAE.


A word from the Lexus MD and Huda Al Matroushi


Jacques Brent, Managing Director of Al-Futtaim Lexus, said, “Traditionally, the world’s auto-mechanical industry has always been a male-dominated one, but Huda Al Matroushi is proving that this doesn’t have to be the case, especially in a country like the United Arab Emirates, where the achievements of women are greatly encouraged and celebrated. In the spirit of Emirati Women’s Day, we are pleased to host this workshop for Al-Futtaim’s women employees and guests to improve their knowledge of automotive safety and maintenance, thereby improving the safety of all road users.”


Huda Al Matroushi commented, “Most people think that maintaining your car is a job only for garages and service centres, but all car owners should know the basics of maintaining their vehicle in a safe and roadworthy condition. Through this workshop, it’s my pleasure to educate more female drivers in the UAE on how to keep their car in good condition, and make sure it is safe to drive at all times, especially during the summer months which are especially hard on vehicles. It was a pleasure meeting all these amazing ladies at the Lexus DIP showroom, and I’m grateful to Al-Futtaim Lexus for inviting me to host this workshop.”
