When I was buying my “old” W211 E-Class, there was very little to no information on the internet about the engine problems I could be facing, the air suspension problems I could be facing, and so on. It was only after a couple of hours of scouring the owners’ forums that I could compile a list of potential problems I could face with this used car. This sparked an idea. I decided to create and start writing these buyer guides, letting people find information like this easily and quickly. And that is the mission behind Life On Four. As time went on, our focus also shifted from buyer guides to common transmission, engine, and suspension problems. Having the ability to self-diagnose car problems is an important skill for every car owner and we want to make sure that trustworthy information on car problems is readily available and conveyed in a manner that everyone understands.

My credentials:

Hey, I’m Jure Hodnik, an automotive researcher and writer. Read more about Jure.

I finished a 4-year program to be an Automechanic at the Technical Education Centre of Ljubljana, Slovenia.
I have 6 years of work experience as a floor manager of a transmission specialist repair shop in Nova Gorica, Slovenia.

I base my writing on personal knowledge and the knowledge of car technicians who I contact as I am writing about a certain topic and car brands. Whenever I do use internet sources, I asses their credibility and I will let you know with a citation where the information is coming from.

My curious nature, however, does not allow me to spend my days in the workshop. I always loved writing and I always loved cars. Pretty soon I began to combine the two and I became a freelance automotive writer for many US and EU car dealerships and repair shops. After spending 3 years writing what others wanted me to write, I started this website; Lifeonfour.co
