it's not a matter of having the money to pay a dealer for repairs.
It is a matter of actually enjoying doing the research, getting the tools, and getting your hands dirty, and working on your own car. Especially on easy things like replacing pads.
I think I will try doing my own small stuff as well. I do all my own work on my bike, which is much easier.
Having the right tools also pays off. It pushes you to invest in some good quality tools as well. A while back, I almost had to find out the hard way that I needed to invest in a good hydraulic jack to put on my summer tires..
