All you need is a little patience (and a wrench)

July 13, 2010

For a long time now, I’ve been trying to convince people that auto-mechanics (especially routine maintenance) is something that anyone can do.

It’s easy to convince yourself that you aren’t qualified, or that you’ll mess something up.  We all have self-confidence issues.  But auto-mechanics is something that anyone can learn; with a little common sense and a few careful steps forward, you can proudly say “I did that!”

The big clincher is the car companies.  Would any company want their consumers to solve their own problems if they have–for example–a shop in a dealership that brings in the big bucks by fixing their consumers’ vehicles?

Is somebody from Hyundai or Honda or Ford or Dodge going to say, “Sure, you can do that yourself” if they know that they can make money off you by doing the repair? Of course not.

They want your money, so they don’t want you to know that you can do it yourself.  Think of all the big businesses that would fail if people grew increasingly more self-reliant, rather than reliant on companies to fulfill their needs and wants.

The purpose of this website will be to educate and inform. 

I’m Rose (Rosa or Rosy), my Hyundai is named Midge…

And my other car is a broom.
