It’s time for another oil change and instead of taking it to the dealership, where I bought the car, my dad said he could change it for me. I would be saving money, and all I need to buy is the filter and the motor oil. To be on the safe side I called customer service, since my car is still under warranty, and was told to just keep record of what was done and when it was done. Plus, my dad showed me how to change it and some other things to check on a regular basis. I just saved 30 dollars!

Car Talk has some great tips, like what repairs to start with and which ones to leave to the experts. Carbibles.com has some great maintenance tips and it’s fun to see tire spelled tyre.
