Top Tips for Dealing with Mechanics
Feeling more confident when dealing with a mechanic can be as simple as knowing a few key tips, according to news.com.au.
Trust your instinct. If something doesn't feel right, it probably isn't the garage for you. It pays to shop around to get the best price, but drivers should also feel confident about shopping around for a garage which best suits their personal needs, too.
Ask questions of your mechanic. There's no need to be intimidated, and it's important to understand why something needs (or doesn't need) to be done to your car. Offer any information you have to assist in a quicker diagnosis, such as how the car feels when driving.
Check up on repairs. It's okay to call and ask if your car isn't ready at the agreed time.
Keep to your vehicle's service schedule. If you do, you're less likely to experience unexpected problems, which could result in inconvenient breakdowns.
