Car ownership comes with a lot of responsibilities!  There's the regular car maintenance and up keep like oil changes, tires and rotations, brakes, etc. and let us not forget the insurance, taxes, fuel costs and more.

But when it comes to the biggest automotive headaches in the cowboy state, which are the most common? The website tabulated the trends on auto repairs for each state spanning from March 2017 to March 2018 which led them to a list of the biggest car problems in each state.

Wyoming ranks as one of the top 10 states with the most car problems due to it's being in the top 5 in multiple categories.

Wyoming leads the nation in Dents, Windshield Replacement and Oil Change searches.  With the long miles between towns a lot of travel miles are racked up for both business and recreation alike in Wyoming.  With all those miles, problems can easily appear, especially if you neglect regular maintenance on your vehicle.

With all of the snow, strong winds and the occasional hail storm that occur inside the cowboy state, we can easily speculate why all of these 'dents' are happening.

Mix in all the sand and gravel on Wyoming's highways to help with all the snow and ice we receive each winter and it's no wonder Wyoming leads the nation in windshield repairs and replacements.

Another big issue for folks in the cowboy state are oil related.  Regular oil changes are a must in Wyoming, especially if you spend a lot of time behind the wheel racking up those highway miles.  You hear and see this problem all the time, in fact this reminds me that the oil changed in my truck is way overdue!
