But as what I can see, they haven’t much invented a gadget to make automotive repairs easier for me. I am still on my hard times when my car needs repairs. Without the sentimental value of this car to me, I would have sold it already. But just for old time’s sake, I’ll just keep it one more year. This just made me realize how an important automotive repair is. You can’t just go ahead on buying a new car you’re your old one needs repairs. All of us should consider the financial aspect of our decisions. Which choice will cost me lesser money? Is it having my old car repaired or is it by buying a new car instead?

Sometimes our impatience can get the best of us and before we knew it, we just bought ourselves a new car because of it. But before you get to that position, let us first consider the value of automotive repairs could have on our decisions. Although not included in the top 2010 inventions, no mention of any invention that relates to it even, but technology today have already reached a high enough potential that can certainly turn your doubts of having your car function like new after repairs. The professions of our mechanical and automotive engineers have also advanced hand in hand with the new trends and technology of the world today. This means that small problems on your cars carburetor, your cars battery, your cars breaks and the works should be no problem in the hands of our mechanics.

Another way I view automotive repair is that it is a wonderful opportunity to show how you value your car. I am definitely on of the few that gets my car repaired because of its sentimental value to me but I am also one of those which truly benefits from it not just financially because I get to keep my sentimentally valued possession up and running.
