The best way to know if an auto repair shop is reliable is by word of mouth. Ask around and see where other people go for their auto repair needs. Another helpful way to get testimonials is by way of the Internet. Most well functioning auto repair shops will have a website with not only lots of useful information, but they also often have a list of testimonials from happy clients. Read them and see what people like about that particular auto repair shop. The testimonials are a great start, but those can sometimes be a little biased, so another great place to look is Yelp for honest reviews from customers. Try and find someone that has a similar situation as yours, and see what people say about various mechanics.

Estimate Polices:

Most honest auto repair places with charge a flat fee or no cost at all for a basic inspection of the problem in order to give you an estimate for how much it will cost to be fixed. Be sure to find out if there is an inspection fee and how much it is upfront so that you don’t run the risk of it fluctuating without your knowledge.

Advice for Choosing your Orange County Auto Repair:

Great mechanics come a dime a dozen. It can often be difficult to tell if you are getting great a deal or getting ripped off. Without the proper mechanical knowledge it is often really difficult to know what factors you should be aware of. You need someone to care about your vehicle maintenance the way it deserves to be cared for.

Here are a few things to consider when looking for your Orange County Auto Repair.

Don’t be afraid to get estimates and compare them.

Use your resources! Scour the Internet for reliable mechanics and give them a call. Ask as many questions as you’d like to ensure that you are getting the best for your buck. A great mechanic will take the time to answer any and every question that you may have.

Ask for a breakdown of costs.

Be sure that the mechanic is open to discuss with you exactly what you are paying for. They should be able to tell you what the parts are going to cost, approximately how long it will take, what they are going to charge you for labor, and any further complications they may anticipate which may cost you extra money. Because of the nature of work that this is, the information can rarely be exact or precise, but they should always be able to provide you with a rough estimation. Stay away from mechanics that “won’t know until they’re done” fixing your problem.

*There are of course cases where complications are unforeseen, but the mechanic should be in clear communication with you about the complications as they are discovered.

*If you are unsure about what the specific nature of your vehicle’s problem is, always remember that it never hurts to get a second opinion.

Make a Commitment.

Once you’ve found your perfect Orange County auto repair shop and have had a positive first experience, commit to them! As previously stated, finding a great mechanic can be tough, so once you find one- keep ‘em. Go to them for all of your mechanical needs and build a relationship with them. As you continue to go to them, they will know your car better, know your car’s history, and be able to serve your needs even better than before.
