You think you know what the problem might be, so if you go to a reputable shop, they'll be able to fix it quickly and inexpensively. But how do you find a reputable auto repair shop late at night in a city you've never visited? Many shops will help you in an emergency at a fair price. But a sad few insist on taking advantage of your misfortune. One good way to protect yourself is to not be in a hurry. You may be on your way to see an important client, but accept the fact that you will be delayed and make sure you are not cheated simply because you're in a hurry. The corner service station you coasted to may be the most honest shop in town. You can tell if it is by a few small things. An honest mechanic will first test the car to see what is wrong-if it is something more than what you suspect. He or she will always let you know how much these tests will cost and keep you informed of the progress. The mechanic also should explain Everything that needs to be done and will not mind if you ask to watch the repairs. You also can expect to see a written diagnosis and estimate of the needed work. The honest shop won't mind if you ask to call your regular mechanic and read him or her the diagnosis. If the shop you're dealing with won't do these things, you may be dealing with the wrong automotive repair shop. Car Care Tidbit Some psychologists say our automobiles are extensions of our personalities...that when you see a car that's obviously well-kept and running like a fine timepiece, you"" can expect that the driver probably wants to present his best to the world. So look after your ear-not only will it run better, but your image will benefit as well.
