Curious to hear from mechanics about the worst situations you’ve seen/most expensive repairs you’ve had to make as a result of car owners neglecting basic maintenance (oil changes, brake checks, tires, scheduled maintenance, etc.).
Specifically, I want to know:
What was the major repair that needed to be made as a result of neglecting something more minor?
What was the price tag on that repair?
What more basic repair/maintenance service could have prevented it?
Ps. This is for an article I’m writing and I’d be happy to link back to your shop/website if we use your tip. Thanks!
