Mechanic shortage, you wont be able to get your car fixed

> that sucks i wanted to be a mechanic i guess i need to find another career due to low pay.
Maybe a surgical tech ??

an aging workforce, lower-than-average earning potential and a rising number of older cars.

    When enough demand is there, pay will rise and attract applicants.

      That's how it's supposed to work. That's not how it works with the wonders of third world exploitation.

    Mechanics will become a thing of the past, vehicles will be disposable like cellphones. But only the rich will be able to afford their own, you can subscribe and rent one from a fleet.

    I already work on my own car, if you need a mechanic you are moronic, a woman, or incapable of using a search engine.

      A lot of brands post 2020 are pretty hard to work on as a consumer. Software is locked down tight. Requiring a very expensive scanner to program stuff.

        what brands? ford has forscan, toyota has techstream, GM has theirs etc etc... All of those are freely available on the net if you look. Only the GM one requires a bit of monkey business to use if its an older vehicle. Equipment manufacturers are the ones trying to lock stuff down, but I think that has been repealed already.

          Fiat chrysler. The bus is locked tight. Can't even change your stereo.

          Yes i have pirated techstream but you still can't do everything the dealer can, like re program an immobilizer in an all keys lost situation.

    Some startup that prototyped some ugly EV cars and looks shady as frick (I don't want to mention its name here) proposed some sort of DIY maintenance for their clients, with videos and procedures available online and all parts being sent via mail.

    It sounds like a good idea for the future.

      While you're not wrong, I think you glossed over all of the proprietary scanners, diagnostics and tools required to work on modern cars.
      A DIY guy can't feasibly do many repairs as he would need to invest a lot of money just to read the ECU.
      I mean, even brakes are starting to have all sorts of bs sensors. 12v systems are no longer, it's all canbus.
      Worst of all, more and more engineering is done by jeets so the actual design of software is crap

      I'm in industrial maintenance and tons of guys switch over, its poaching mechanics left and right. set schedule, better pay, paid hourly, real benefits. You can usually tell the ex automotive techs by their snap-on jackets. some are really good and can do shit like read german electrical schematics, others are pure midwit. Most 2 year degree level trades are full of midwits, though, the American education system has been pushing morons into them for decades.

      Its a real arms race to develop new complicated shit before tool companies can make the tools to work on them, I've heard. and since you buy your own tools, YOU will be the one shelling out for them.

      me too, now I work for the manufacturer. $35hr is not uncommon for a newer tech that isn't an idiot. Some techs are $50+ and that is even in relatively low cost of living areas. A good tech can make more than me by the time they get efficiency bonuses.

    Aww frick, I guess we might have to start treating mechanics and paying them like the valuable and skilled tradesmen that they are instead of like some lower class slave to be exploited.

    Like I give a frick. I fix my own shit. This just means the cops won't be able to bother me about inspection stickers. I will tell them to go frick themselves if they do.
