(Irvine, CA) The cost of car repairs are going up.

CarMD, a vehicle repair website, says car repair costs were up 10% in 2012, the biggest jump in six years.

The age of cars is one reason for the increase.

The average car is more than 11 years old.

The record heat from last year may have also driven up costs.
