Accidental Brake Repair

Sometimes it’s hard for me to admit that I’ve messed up. For example, last week when I stopped paying attention whilst driving and mounted the curb, I struggled to admit to anyone what I had been doing and what had happened. I just don’t like making mistakes and I really don’t like people knowing about …

Awesome Hobart Mechanic

Six years ago my parents retired and moved to Hobart. This was always their plan and I was very happy for them when they moved. I’ve always been very close to my parents and so when they moved I promised that I would visit them every summer from then on. I stood by that. Six …

Car Servicing Blocks

Okay so where I left you guys off was when I was about to get my wheel alignment service and then the car air conditioning regas, because I bought a second hand car that is essentially a piece of junk. Well, both those services went well thanks to the mechanic and so now we’re up …

Driven Car Service

If I had to describe my life, I’d use an old, run down car as an analogy. My life is kind of like a car that should be able to, but for some reason just doesn’t start. I’ve been to almost one hundred different doctors who have no idea why I don’t have the drive …

Car Won’t Start

I’m really upset right now. My boyfriend has come down with a really bad flu that has gotten progressively worse over the last few days, and I can’t be there to help him. He lives about an hour away from me, which obviously isn’t close but isn’t too far and usually I would be able …

Tool Storage Heaven

I am in my fourth year of an electrical apprenticeship. Anyone who has worked in a trade knows how difficult it is. Trade work is most definitely not for the faint of heart. Being a sparky has been a test of my stamina and resilience every day since I finished school five years ago. Don’t …

Confused Car Owner

Hi! My name is Gaby, I’m 20 years old and I just bought my first second-hand car. Before yesterday I had always used the family car, and did not need to worry about literally any of its upkeep. My only responsibilities were a) don’t wreck the car and b) fill it up for petrol at …
