Do It Yourself

How do you know if a certain repair is right for you?

Great question.

In our opinion, there are three factors to consider:

1. How dangerous is the repair to life and limb, if something goes wrong during or after the job.

2. The risk that you might cause permanent, unalterable damage to your car.

3. The degree of complexity of the repair, or the need for very special and expensive tools.

To help you decide whether to attempt a specific repair, we've rated many of the most common repairs on each of these three categories.

To find out if a specific repair is right for you, take look at our proprietary Click and Clack Matrix so you can determine exactly what you're in for.
