PART One: Think about what kind of a mechanic you want
Good auto repair mechanics expend large amounts of effort, time, and money so they are able to repair your car. They spend thousands for tool and their tool box which can be an indicator of their commitment to the industry of automotive repair. What is real important is the professionalism and respect for you as their customer. The first step is for you to develop a short list of what it is that you are looking for in an automotive repair mechanic and to be proactive. Do not wait until your car is broken down to find a car mechanic you can trust. Identify those shops closest to your home or where you work. Pull up their web sites and ask others about them. Eventually someone may actually offer you a recommendation of whom they trust.
