A recent AAA survey says the week economy is changing how motorists handle their vehicle maintenance.

Nearly 30% of survey respondents said a $2,000 repair bill for their car would be more than their budget could handle. And one in eight surveyed said a $1,000 repair bill would break the bank.

More than half of respondents said they’ve decided in the past 12 months to hold onto an older vehicle rather than face the burden of paying for a new one, according to the survey.

Here are more survey results from the Magic Valley Times-News.
