I've had an Accord Tourer CTDi for about 5 years. I've pretty much always serviced my own cars, and before that helped my dad do his. But that's all a long time ago now. Interesting how things have moved on, not only with the cars, also service techniques, tools etc. Years ago I used get dirty hands, cuts and grazes, now days I wear gloves, but get backache far too quickly. I may be getting older, but wouldn't drive an older car. I like the refinement and sophistication modern cars have, which means keeping up to date with the electronics is essential to keep on top of the servicing. Things don't always go right first time, a bit of research and help from those in know goes a long way to making a good job easier. As well as getting help here, I might even be able to give some back.
