    "Perfect time to become a car mechanic"

    Great article on the fact most people won't be buying new in the near future.
    This is very fortunate for mechanics or the DIY type who is interested in tackling some of this work.
    It should be a wakeup call to the automakers that in order to keep the trust in the customer, you should be more transparent about your practices and stop the overpriced dealer repairs.
    It was just a matter of time before all of this nonsense played out, who actually goes to the dealer and pays full price for parts anymore? Its not even a realistic price either, its sometimes marked up 300% and that just doesn't last as a long term strategy.
    Its time for the short timers (execs who have run these companies into the ground to step aside) and let those who know hard work and honest living to start being heard.
