Teaching Lauren Basic Car Maintenance

On our way back from Wisconsin, we stopped in Chicago.  We got our oil changed in the city for $30 dollars, saving us on parking.  But, they said we needed our brakes done and wanted to charge us $374 dollars for the job.

We decided to buy the parts online instead and do it ourselves.  It saved us over $300 and it was a great opportunity to teach Lauren how to change her own brake pads.
