But there comes a point where you simply have to stump up the cash to get your car fixed.

Or is there?

These motorists, snapped and posted to Reddit, certainly don’t think so having taken DIY repairs to the next level.

We’re pretty sure most of these wouldn’t cut it at MOT but you can’t help praising the ingenuity of the “fixes”.

So read on for the worst – and most hilarious – car repairs from around the world.
