Yeah, because what we need the most - besides people who do everything to save a penny - is said people to think about their money first when they encounter a dangerous situation where they _have_ to brake hard. Driving like a turtle on Valium doesn't eliminate other stupid drivers.

I, too, have transcended the need to see a motor and gear operating. However, I'm required to keep my car fit for public traffic. If it's broken and I can't fix it myself, I don't come up with an armchair diagnosis and then run off to the first forum I find on the Internet in a crappy attempt to handle the situation myself.

I go to a fucking repair shop.
