Why You SHOULDN’T DIY Car Repair!
Something is broken, and rather than pay to get it fixed you’ve decided to try and DIY. After all, how hard can it possibly be? Well, when it comes to car repair the answer is that it is very hard indeed. Simply because there are so many different and complex components to a vehicle, all of which vary upon make, model and year and all of which require specialised tools, equipment, materials and skills to solve and repair. Here is why you should absolutely not be doing your own car repairs.
The Internet is NOT Your Friend
It may seem easy: work out the problem, research the problem, fix the problem. But, the reality is, the internet is vast and treacherous when it comes to car repair. Every make, model, year and even past service history combine to make every single vehicle completely unique. Each make will require specific parts and have those parts located in different areas of the vehicle. Each model will require specific tools and components for their features and functions. Each year will be manufactured different than the last and so will require different tools, parts and have different features and components than past or future years. With so many variations and specific unique requirements, it would be nearly impossible to have a generic DIY online tutorial be useful in showing you how to accurately and correctly repair a part of your car.
You Can Decrease Its Value
Never mind the potential to void its warranty, repairing parts yourself is going to decrease your cars value. Without proof of a professional repair, potential buyers aren’t going to trust that it has been serviced correctly. Getting your repair done by a professional mechanic will guarantee that the work has been done expertly and give value to your vehicle rather than remove it. Having new services and repairs done to your car should be a benefit, but when you do them yourself it will always lead to a negative outcome sooner or later.
