About Bogi

Sarah “Bogi” Lateiner started 180 Degrees Automotive to provide individualized automotive repair service and educational programs about automobile maintenance, and to break the stereotype that “women don’t know anything about cars.” Her mission is to inform and empower her clients to take an active role in caring for their vehicles, and to encourage other women to pursue careers as auto mechanics. She is currently writing a handbook for women, and anyone else, who wish to learn more about their cars and about the world of automotive repair.

Bogi developed an interest in automotive technology at Montclair High School, NJ, where she rebuilt her first car, a 1974 Volkswagen beetle, and convinced the school board to continue funding industrial arts programs, arguing the value of teaching skills that would be useful throughout life. A graduate of Oberlin College in Ohio, where she majored in pre-law and women’s studies, Bogi decided to pursue her dream of becoming an auto mechanic. She earned an Associate Degree in Automotive Technology at Universal Technical Institute in Phoenix, AZ, completed post graduation training at the BMW STEP Program in Montvale, NJ, worked as a BMW technician in New York, and distinguished herself as a Master Technician and ASE Certified Specialist at Scottsdale BMW before starting 180 Automotive.
