    I am never willing to take my car to a dealership unless it's for a recall.

    I know that feel with the proprietary systems for repair. I’m a truck driver and if anything major is wrong with my Freightliner, it HAS to go to the dealership. No ands, ifs, or buts. And of course, like you said, their rates are through the roof. Mostly with these faulty and unreliable DPF systems.

    What would be the wait time at the dealership if they were the only place to get your car fixed?

  • Lucky Captain Rabbit King

    Right to repair should be recognized on a federal level because without it, there's nothing stopping auto manufacturers from hiking up the prices of cheaply made cars and getting double for repairs either from the original buyer or the resale market. Like Tesla.

    I'm so glad I taught myself mechanics over the last 3 years.AND I have no intention of changing my 15 year old car for a new car with all these crappy sensors on it.

    Look around 99 per cent of the small mechanics, are all gone.We been getting swept under the carpet for years.They've managed to get rid of us, just so the dealer ship can give it to us. Up the wallet.I could have fixed it for 50 bucks, Now a days, if I see a packy, having a problem.With his car. I just keep walking.I don't keel like getting ripped off by so, packy.

    Hey Scotty! Automatic Breaking? I couldn’t believe it when I heard about that when they started putting those on big trucks. I’m a Professional Driver. Last thing I need is the truck deciding for me. Technology going too far! Remember Ted Kasynski? The UnaBomber? His whole point was that too much technology is going to ruin the World. I don’t approve of what he did but he did have a point. Thnx. CJ

    Apple went through this, but then they relented to a certification program for independent repair to become certified to fix Apple products.I feel the auto industry is next.

    I agree with this wholeheartedly! Im not a great mech but i can hold my own thanks to you and a cpl other guys i respect. My 2007 Dodge Charger 2.7l has been an absolutely incredible ride for a long time, i have 232K miles and it still runs like a champ. That being said, its time to change my thermostat and that sucker is BURIED! why wouldnt they put it near the upper water outlet closer to the radiator? the 3.5 does and im having a heck of a time just trying to get to the housing! I believe its designed that way to make me take it to the dealer to fix. Ridiculous

    After watching this video, I am angry with you. I don't like how car companies want to prevent other mechanics from fixing cars. Here's a case where I hope you are even louder than yesterday!

    I couldn't drive my chevy 3500 van in the snow because the anti-lock brakes would never allow the tires to stop if I was going down a hill It would keep rolling about 3 mph....right through stop signs!! Older vehicles would just lock the wheels and you could slide to a stop.

    After 3 Tahoes, 3 Silverados I have NEVER had a recall nor an issues with my brakes. In fact, I have always been impressed with the emergency braking on my Silverados and Tahoes.

    Scotties garage is his drive and thats no place to work on a car. I take my car to a modern facility which is spotlessly clean and has all the latest tools and diagnostics. It is of course KIA GWR, the flagship dealership in the UK.
