I do most things, myself. I can currently afford not to, but I do it, anyway, as I was raised frugally and I enjoy tinkering with mechanical and electrical things (and always have).
I do most things myself, but the computer stuff.
Same as several here, do most, or almost all my repairs myself. Tires and some computer/electronics I hire out to a shop. After working shops all my life then retiring, it's hard to take ole Silv and let someone else handle her. Something to be said about doing a repair job or regular maintenance myself and the satisfaction I feel when I'm finished and she running, nicely, and looking great
I do lots of my own work other than major workAttachment 43153
If I have the resources and time, I'll usually do it myself. It's good to have people to ask questions (like on here) if you get stumped over something. Saving money is a plus, but I value the experience and satisfaction I get when I fix something. At least on my stuff, if I do it, I know what I did. I don't trust too many other people to work on my vehicles. Never know when some people will take short cuts. Flat rate pay often causes mechanics to get in a rush... Not saying they are not good at what they do, but there's a lot of pressure trying to beat the clock on some jobs.
They only thing I don't do is alignment on my newer vehicles . If I had one of the new alignment racks no one would every touch my girls
Between my husband and I we do most repairs ourselves. Most things we buy are in some state of needing repairs - can't afford to buy things that I want that run. LOL
i unfortunitly have no money and have to do my own, don't know much but lucky seam to pick it up fast and know basics lol
I'm with CJ on this one. I at least do the basics. If it's more than that, if I can figure out what the problem is, I'll at least first see if I can do it myself.
