Questions to Ask Your Mecahnic - Auto Repair Specialist
By: Luke Shaff ~ 5/18/2017

Does your car need repairs or have you been meaning to take it in for basic maintenance? Whether your car needs new tires, an oil change, or new breaks, choosing an auto repair specialist can be daunting. Finding a balance between quality service and fair prices can be difficult, especially if you’ve never had to find a mechanic before. To help ensure you get the best service possible, here are a few questions you should always ask a new auto repair specialist.

Are you familiar with the make and model of my car?

One of the first questions you should ask any auto shop is whether the auto technicians have done repairs or maintenance on a car like yours before. This is especially important for classic or European cars, which may require special knowledge and skills to repair.

Does your shop belong to any automotive associations?

When you take your car in for service and repair, it’s always a good idea to inquire about which automotive associations the shop belongs to. Examples of automotive associations are AAA and Automotive Service Association. Both of these organizations have quality standards that the shop must be in compliance with.

Do you provide free estimates?

Many auto shops will offer free estimates for car maintenance and repairs. It’s always worth asking. Additionally, if there is a charge for diagnostics, make sure you inquire about how it’s determined and how much it will be.
