What to Know:
Know your vehicle: The type of vehicle and its particular engine, powertrain, wheels, and other features will help determine where and when you’ll take your vehicle for its regular maintenance. In addition, knowing what the manufacturer of your car or truck recommends for its maintenance, the contents of your owner’s manual, any warranties in effect, and the repair and maintenance of your specific vehicle will help you make the best decisions concerning auto care.
What to Avoid:
Avoid places that do not stand by their work or for whom the customer isn’t a priority. Word of mouth is a powerful tool, and for some the most important. Don’t be afraid to ask potential mechanics about their rates, or get quotes on work in writing. Know your rights as a consumer, and don’t be afraid to assert those same rights.
What to Look For:
Look for a shop that has experience working with your particular make or model of vehicle. This experience is often more valuable than any dollar amount and will make a world of difference in time, energy, effort, and overall satisfaction with auto care.
