How to Find a Good Auto Mechanic
In a world where few people know their vehicle's workings, it's good to know how to find the right person to keep you up and running. With just a few tips, you'll be driving comfortably for years to come.
1. First, try to research various automotive certifications. A good auto mechanic will be ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) Certified and should have a certification indicating what areas he is proficient in.
2. Another thing to look for is affiliation signs. AAA will certify some local repair shops after examining their credentials and business policies, and they will have a list of those shops on their website.
3. Ask around. Your friends, family, and colleagues have cars, and have to get them serviced somewhere. Find out how they feel about their mechanics.
4. Check online reviews. Look for reviewers' overall impression, without too much weight to isolated very bad or very good reviews: a reviewer here and there may be unreasonable, mistaken, dishonest, or simply grumpy.
