“Never trust a mechanic who drives new cars. They’re either charging too much money for their work, or they can’t keep an old car running — maybe both.” —Patricia Briggs, author
Okay, maybe that approach is a bit simplistic when your car breaks down and you need to choose a mechanic. But for many people, taking their car to the shop is an intimidating experience. They aren’t car-repair experts, after all, and they want to be sure they can trust they’re getting a fair deal.
(We should note that we’re talking about everyday repair situations here, not repairs resulting from an insurance claim. For claims-related repairs, we can help you find a shop in our Guaranteed Repair Network™ — but you always are free to choose your own.)
