Here is a perfect example, I was quoted that to fix my electric window it would be $250.00 to $300.00! I called and the part was about $105.00 the labor was free because I did it myself. I can do small repairs as well as some longer repairs like brakes, tune up's, or oil changes. I also can change themastats, as well as do some AC repairs. If I can't do it I won't do it. I lived In Alaska for over 18 years and auto repairs out there are an arm and a leg so you have to learn how to do your self or pay big bucks.
