We put a lot of money in to car repairs this past year. We could have saved a lot of money if we could have done some of them ourselves. My husband can do some basic maintenance like changing the oils and things like that, but we do not have a way to get the car off the ground to do this. Lying under the car is not a good idea because there is not enough room to move around easily. A car lift would help a lot. We could get the car off the ground and do it in a safe manner, much safer than on a regular car jack.
