You got that right Brian! Considering most shops charge anywhere from $50 to $100 an hour just for labor. With $10 or $15 a YEAR can give you thousands of dollars worth of diagnostic advice, and depending how close you are to other members, most of us would come help you. For a nominal fee of course, some prefer Budweiser, or Coors! LOL.
The other things to consider about saving the $$ with the mechanic, is the money saved in wear and tire on your car driving to find help, money saved on gas saved, your time is probably worth a lot and you are saving a huge bunch of that, and where else can you meet so many people who are willing and able to help and then make friends with them! All this for as little as .04 cents a day for the Extreme!!!
