Over 60% of Us Can't Fix a Flat Tire . . . and 41% Don't Even Know Which Pa

posted by Phil -

I remember my mother teaching me that stuff in Bessemer in Pueblo.  I had to learn on a stick shift.  Had to pass the family test before the real one...              

Here are six fixes, and how many of us feel "extremely confident" we could do them . . .

 

 

1.  Could you add windshield washer fluid to your car?  30% aren't sure they could.

 

2.  Could you replace your windshield wipers?  52% don't know if they could handle it.

 

3.  Could you jump start your car if the battery died?  53% don't know if they could.

 

4.  Could you put a spare tire on?  61% aren't sure.  One in five don't even know how to use a gauge to check the tire pressure.

 

5.  Could you replace a blown fuse?  63% aren't sure they could do it.

 

6.  Could you change your own oil?  67% said no.

 

 

Now here's the craziest stat.  Researchers showed people different photos of car parts.  And 41% couldn't even identify which part was the ENGINE.
