There’s no doubt that every vehicle will have common repairs but the big question is how do you handle those repairs when they arise?

In this article, we will provide you with some tips on how to handle common vehicle repairs and answer the question of how you will know when it’s time to get rid of your junk car.

Common Vehicle Repairs Defined

During the process of owning a car, truck, van or RV, some of the most common vehicle repairs that you can expect as the owner of your vehicle include:  oil changes, tire rotation and balancing, annual tune-ups, windshield replacement, windshield wiper replacements, new tires and replacement of parks including brake master cylinders or radiators.

The good news is that most common vehicle repairs will not cost you more than $50 to $100 at a time and it’s easy to schedule vehicle repairs on any calendar program these days so that when it comes time for you to get the oil in your vehicle changed, tires rotated, or even schedule a tune-up for your vehicle, you will be reminded to get that work done and not forget about it.

One major problem that every vehicle owner has to face at least one point or another in their lives is when the money that they’re spending to repair their vehicle begins to eclipse the actual value of the vehicle itself. When this occurs, it’s time to take a step back and ask yourself if it’s worth paying an extra $100 or more per month to keep that vehicle on the road or if you should just sell the vehicle and buy something newer?

Summer is almost here in Portland Oregon and with it comes an increase in temperatures and gas prices in the City of Roses.

With an increase in costs you may be asking yourself if it’s a good time for you to finally recycle your car and depending on this situation the answer could be yes.

How To Know When It’s Time To Sell Your Car

Edmunds car maintenance website pointed out something else that car owners should pay attention to before they sell their car. As the primary driver of that vehicle, you know the problems that you had over and over again with the maintenance of that car. You’ve been on the most long trips with it and you’ve been the one paying the mechanic, so you have the records of all of the mishaps and inconveniences that the vehicle has put you through over a certain period of time. You know how many miles were on the car when you first got it, and how many it accumulated as you drove it. You also know what type of conditions the car has been in, whether the weather where you live is very hot or very cold. Overall, you have the best idea about the amount of wear and tear on that particular car. And that’s the information the junkyard needs to know. It’s better to sell it if it’s run down to the point where is going to keep putting you deeper and deeper into debt trying to fix it.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Still, you have those people who are insane about their cars, and they’ll keep going from mechanic to mechanic hoping that one of them will say “maybe you should sell the car…” Why are they waiting on a mechanic to say that? Because that’s the only voice in their ear that has any deeper interior knowledge about the car other than themselves, along with the fact that they themselves just need to be told to do it, because they can’t summon the courage to let it go alone. But don’t be a fool. You are losing money every time you visit that guy, and chances are he’ll keep “fixing” it every time you pull it into his garage. It’s time for you to make a firm decision to not to continue go broke for that old junk car, and sell it for a good price.
