Top 10 check-engine-light car repairs
The annual cost for car repairs jumped 6.7 percent on average in 2013, and that's on top of a 10 percent rise from 2011 to 2012, according to CarMD's 2014 Vehicle Health Index. The report, which analyzed 2013 data, found that costs rose for nine of the top 10 car repairs. While increases in costs might cause consumers to postpone car repairs, doing so is a bad idea. If you see the light come on, make an appointment with your mechanic promptly.
