Well, only you can answer that question. They are simple cars and if you have some basic car knowlege you can do most of the maintenance yourself. If you don’t have basic car knowlege, well here’s your chance! It’s very rewarding to work on your own vehicle. However if you are “mechanically challenged” there are lots of British car shops that would be happy to change the oil, grease, etc for you.
