Good post Donald,
It is surprising how many drivers know absolutely nothing about their car, (not surprising some don't know how to drive it either) If you are careful and always get a Haynes manual, (some people say they are useless but there not) you can do a lot of servicing and repairs that would cost a fortune in a garage.
As you said if anything is beyond you take it to the garage, your lucky building up a rapport with them aswell.
I used to be a mechanic many years ago and have done 99% of the work on all cars I have owned but after getting my Renault I had to ask for help on this forum.
Good luck with your Renault.
Thank you very much for all you said and done as i said it all comes down to money i can afford the car but cant afford to go to the garage every time something goes wrong so a tryed myself with lots of success.
Currently in Donald's garage:
2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
