    And you can research just about anything. For instance, I found a video of how to replace/install the cabin filter in a 2014 Ford Escape. The filter was twelve dollars I think. Ordered it online too. Oh and the Ford dealer wanted about 125 dollars to do it. Took me about five minutes to replace it.

    Injeun,
    That is the truth.
    I have experienced the same thing, in principle, many times.
    Good post.

    This is SO true. My mother just had her garbage disposal completely break. My step father youtubed how to fix one. He got the parts and did it himself for 80 dollars. The estimate from his contractor was 340 with labor.
