How much $ do you set aside for car maintenance/repair a year? Or do you not set aside anything at all and just wing it, fixing things as they go with whatever money you have?
Do you do regularly scheduled maintenances, or just wait until things stop working, or for those check lights to appear?
I'll start. I'd love to set aside $1500 a year for car repair and main, but at this time I cannot afford a budget for anything at all.
My plan at this time is when things break down, to sell enough of my possessions to get things fixed.
I know it's not the best plan, but it is what I can swing currently. I really should take the car in for an oil change, soon, actually.
I will need to save up for that.
I am very interested to know what other people do about their vehicles.
