It’s a real generation game when it comes to auto repair.
More than a quarter of millennials (those born between 1981 and 1996) say they would do their own repairs to save on costs rather than pay a professional garage, a new study reveals.

In contrast, less than one in five baby boomers (18%) (the post-war generation born between 1946 and 1964 that transformed the world) are willing to get their hands dirty, preferring to seek help from his local workshop.
And those of “Generation Z” (1997 to 2012) of driving age are apparently also willing to take the plunge, with more than 23% of 17-24 year olds willing to undertake minor repairs themselves.
The research was carried out by eBay, now the UK’s largest online car marketplace, selling parts from an extensive network of traders.
