5 Questions to Ask Your Mechanic

CBS Money Watch "5 Questions to Ask Your Mechanic" By Jerry Edgerton state:

1. Do you work on my car make?
-It might be difficult if you own a foreign-made car, a specialty line, or a bigger vehicle, depending on what the shop usually takes, it may be best to go with a shop that is very familiar with your car make, and hopefully car model.

2. Is your shop approved by the AAA?

3. Does your shop give written estimates?

-To avoid financial surprises, especially if you are a new customer.

4. What is the warranty on your parts and labor?

-Look for something around 12 months-12,000 miles for a good warranty.

5. My Car has (fill in the blank). What is wrong with it?

-be as clear cut and direct as possible when taking your car in so that every symptom isn't overlooked by busy shop owners and mechanics.
