Finding an Honest and Reliable Mechanic

Many people don’t realize just how much of a challenge it can be to find an honest and reliable mechanic until they desperately need one. They also don’t realize just how easy it is for an unscrupulous mechanic to rip a person off. For one thing, a dishonest mechanic can charge for something called “gravy time”, where they fib and extend the time they spent working on your vehicle. They also can overcharge for parts, and there are even times where a mechanic will try to “upsell” you on various other things they think your car should have. So how do you guard against this? Here are some tips:

  • Have a full understanding of how your particular car works. Going over your cars owner’s manual will help you learn more.
  • Do some homework. Once your mechanic tells you about a needed repair, do a Google search for the repair needed along with your particular vehicle to see get an idea of what they will be doing and the general price.

If you follow these and other tips, you are sure to get your car fixed at a reasonable price and in an honest manner as well! We have hones and reliable mechanics right here in our service center here at Carbone Subaru!
