The other reason he bought the Volkswagen was that he had heard they were extremely easy to work on. (Rolling eyes, not sure who was the source of that information). His dad had never taught him how to work on a car. They just always sent it to a garage to get fixed. He decided, given our financial situation, he needed to learn to work on his car himself.
