Joshua’s Answer

Any car is a good car to get started on to learn however the more basic or older car may be a bit easier to learn on because there may be less computer components that help regulate and run the car. Learning the basics on how to take care of a car is also a really good first step to see if you do enjoy working in that type of field. Things like changing the oil, spark plugs, brakes, windshield wipers, and other items are more maintenance related but gives you the ability to learn and experience. You should be able to find many videos on YouTube on making repairs and most of the time you can find the specific vehicle make and maybe even year so it is more relevant. I was able to teach myself how to change the brakes on all our vehicles through this method and then teach others. I would suggest reading more about the variety of engines, transmissions, and other aspects that are the core of the vehicle and then working with an experienced professional or training program to be more experienced on the major aspects of the vehicle. The field is very rewarding and can be a start of a great career in other vehicle maintenance as well. Good luck!

Joshua recommends the following next steps:

Start out small on an older vehicle to do regular maintenance
Identify a mentor or program to learn more about car repair

Pankaj’s Answer

ANY car that needs repairing. Even if it does not need repairing, there are so many things that you can do with a car (e.g. replace oil filter and oil, replace filters) to get you more familiar with how the car works. There are so many videos on YouTube that you can watch and then find someone that has a car that would let you work on their car. Learning how to be a car mechanic takes time and you need both book knowledge and practical knowledge. If you are really passionate about working on cars, you will be successful if you are committed. Good luck.
