2. Never tell a mechanic to fix whatever is wrong with your car. You’re giving authority to the mechanic to run up your bill to hundreds maybe thousands of dollars.
3. Try to be as descriptive as possible or research what could be wrong with your car prior to taking it to the repair shop. Simply telling the mechanic that your car is making a funny sound is telling them to run as many tests to determine what the issue is costing you hundreds of dollars just to locate the problem.
4. Get a rough estimate from mechanic (preferably in writing) before repairs begin. If possible try to figure out what could be wrong with your car and ask around for estimates before taking your car into a repair shop. This way you can know for sure that you’re getting the better deal.
