“The world of YouTube has made at-home car maintenance easier and more accessible than ever. But since every person’s handiness varies, it’s impossible to say what types of maintenance you should do yourself.
Let’s assume you have more knoweldge than your average driver.
In this case, you can probably top off your fluid levels, change light bulbs, change your air filter, and do an oil change.
As far as what you should leave to an expert might include:
- Balancing your tires
- Doing major engine or transmission repairs
- Fuel system repairs or electronic systems repair
- Air conditioner repairs
The best way to deal with these is to take your vehicle to a trusted repair shop. Unfortunately, car insurance
won’t cover these repairs unless the damage is the result of an accident, but they might be covered on your car’s warranty.
Your insurance usually won’t cover car repairs and maintenance if unrelated to an accident, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t review your policy. You could be overpaying for your premiums and not even know!
If you want help reviewing your policy to ensure you’re getting the best rates, try using the Jerry
