It takes years to learn and understand how the mechanical systems function and integrate on all the different makes and models out there today.

As a consumer, it just makes sense to hire a solid mechanic to service your vehicle at regular intervals. With that in mind it’s important you understand some basics of your car, SUV, or truck, but it’s even more important you get on a schedule for maintenance.

Truck driving takes some serious experience and skill if you want things to go the right way. Back in the day’s people who drove manual transmission trucks were genuinely known as the only Truck Drivers but that isn’t the case anymore.

Both the types of vehicles i.e. hybrid and electric have their pros and cons which we will discuss below.
