And find a parts store with some people who know what there're doing. They're getting really hard to find these days.
    Well minor maintence in my book would be range from cleaning the car to changing the tires?? Anything that you can maintain the car with general tools you have in the garage would be minor in my opinion. Oil Change, changing air filter, spark plugs, etc.

    and cigarette burns suck
    No I do not smoke guys.

    Cigarette burns do suck, epsecially when you're the one getting yelled at for it, LOL. I smoke all super careful when I'm in my friend's car, because she just got it a few months back and she says, "If you burn my upholstry, I'll kill you!" LMAO. My ex-girlfriend's grandma used to nag her about letting me smoke in her car (it wasn't even her grandmother's place to say anything about it... damn crusader!), saying things like, "Your car is gonna stink and blah, blah, blah."

    Never go to a Valvoline Instant Oil Change center. I used to work there and they'll try to sell you the most ridiculous crap. And they always try to push people to use this synthetic oil, which makes the price of your oil change rise by about $40. I remember one time, this cat pulls in and I'm tryin' to greet him and he says, "Don't sell me sh*t! Just change my god-damn oil!"

    Good tip good tip, I just don't go to a dealer to get my oil changed is because I'm afraid of them using some used filters...
