Ten Ways "Cheap" Can Cost You More
"But I can buy those tires cheaper on the internet."
"I'll get used tires instead of new tires, it's cheaper."
"I'll get a plug in this damaged tire instead of a patch, it's cheaper."
"I can get that tire cheaper at the big box store - while I'm shopping for lettuce and baby socks."
"I'd rather not replace the brake pads with the ones recommended, just put some cheap pads on instead."
"I know the manufacturer recommends using synthetic oil, but I want the cheaper stuff."
"I don't want to rotate the tires, it's cheaper to just leave them alone."
"Why change the oil every 3000 miles? I wait for the low oil light to come on before I change it at all."
"I don't keep going back to the same place for my work. I shop around every time and find the cheapest deal. No one place in town really knows much about my car, but it's cheaper to keep switching around every time and following every deal or coupon I can find."
"I know I have a coolant leak / oil leak / power steering leak, but it's cheaper to just keep adding fluid than to get it fixed."
Ever catch yourself saying one of these?
