Wow. I feel fortunate that my wife grew up in a household where her dad fixed EVERYTHING and did not buy new cars, so the sight and smell of tools, oil, and greasy parts are not foreign to her. She's an electrical engineer by training (as am I) and though cars are mere appliances to her, she is sensitive to things mechanical and tells me any time something seems amiss in one of her cars. In almost every case, she discovers some minor issue before it becomes a big deal (in the other cases, I am never able to find a problem . . .)

And she is more than happy to have me do all the service and repair work on her cars, because she knows it will be done correctly. I am more than happy to not be shuttling her cars to idiot dealers so their technicians can muck them up!
