Breakdown Repairs: Buying Auto Parts

My name is Norman and I drive a car which is over 17 years old. The only reason I can drive a car which is so old is that I know how to repair it when it breaks down. Many people make the mistake of thinking that auto repairs only involve knowing how to replace or repair bits of your car. However, what people fail to realise is this - you cannot replace bits of your car if you do not know how to buy the best auto parts for the job. I didn't used to know a thing about this subject. But then I made friends with my local auto repair mechanic and he taught me everything he knew.
