Vehicle upkeep can very expensive if you’re not a mechanic. Cars, like most other human creations, are faulty. Actually, this is called planned obsolescence and is the manufacturers way of making sure your car breaks down or begins to give you a steady source of problems so that you buy a new car. Thus, you will spend more of your money. However, right from the beginning, vehicles can be quite an expense – from purchase to maintenance (along with mandatory payments during use- such as insurance and gas). As many of you guys know, mechanics have a way of bringing the worst out of your car, so there are a few steps we must take to ensure we aren’t wasting money.
