These days, it seems like Do It Yourself (DIY) is everywhere, mostly because people are trying to save money any way they can. But while doing some things on your own makes sense (like painting your hallway), attempting to repair a car problem yourself can often end up costing more instead of less.

In this article just published in our Auto Care Advice section, we are going to explore the pros and cons of DIY car repair, figure out what is safe (and what isn’t) to do on our own, and whether or not going the DIY route is less expensive than taking our car into the shop.
