3 Traits of a Good Mechanic

One of the biggest mistakes we see is when car owners hop from auto shop to shop and cannot find a mechanic to trust. Sometimes this comes from looking for the best price, but many times, it’s hard to keep up with your car’s unique needs. Plus, you may find yourself employing an uneducated mechanic who can make costly mistakes on your vehicle. Finding the right car care place for your car is as important as finding the right car for your lifestyle. Here are 3 traits to look for when finding your auto mechanic:

  1. Concern for you and your car. When talking with your technician about a sound your car is making or concerns you may have, it is important they listen to you and ease your worries. This doesn’t mean telling you what you want to hear, but helping you make a plan and understand how they will diagnose and repair your car or truck. Talking in person may be easier than over the phone in case you need any visuals. Pay attention to how the staff interacts with you, each other and other customers.
  2. Work Guarantee. Any quality car repair shop should be patient and thorough when repairing a vehicle. We guarantee our work for 2 years or 24,000 miles to help give you peace of mind. 
  3. Managing your car and your wallet. When you take your car into the shop, you may already be anticipating sticker shock. Car repairs and maintenance can be expensive, but it should be your technicians priority to keep your car running well and prevent more expensive repairs down the road. Be aware of upselling when it’s unnecessary, but be open to taking care of repairs they may find. If the technician pressures you into a sale, they may not be the mechanic shop for you. If you’re worried about cost, check out our specials to see how you can save.
