Fix Your Own Car

More people take their vehicles to auto repair shops for simple repairs than fix them on their own.

Last weekend, I was at home and told my dad that my check engine light was on. I told him my water temperature gauge was not registering anything and he said he would look at it. Three hours later, he had changed the sensor and it was fixed.

Our generation has fewer and fewer people who are willing and able to make minor repairs to their own vehicles.
