Since I prefer to buy new, I have not needed to do much in the way of repairs in the last 15 years. I usually buy new, drive them 5-7 years and get rid of them. The most I've ever kept a vehicle is about 90K miles. After that many years, I want to look at something different. Since I take good care of my vehicles when I own them, I get good trade in values for them.

If it's something I'm not at all sure about, then i'll ask and do it myself. I always try to save my money and do it myself and knowing it'll be done right!Every girl needs a few trucks, one for leisure...one as a toy! I got lucky, cause I got both!

Unless i need new tires on/alignment or stuff that just isn't possible without a lift or special equipment i won't pay a shop to do what can be done on my own. I enjoy working on my truck anyway. I think it's better to work on your own vehicle because you knows what there and learn more and more about it every time you work on something different.95 S10 LS 5 speed ext cab 2wd "work truck"

I like this. It sucks when your work vehicle is down. No car no work.

I do most of it myself, Brakes, belts, tuneup's, fuel pump, etc. But I still have trouble with stuff, like putting the pieces together to build the front bumper..... putting the new bumper on is a piece of cake.
