If you keep your car long enough, every vehicle owner will need to find an auto repair shop for service and repair. Leaving your vehicle at an auto repair shop that you are not familiar with can make one a little nervous wondering what kind of service you will receive. How do you know what questions to ask when you need an auto repair?

Here are a few tips to help you know what to ask and why so that you can feel confident about leaving your car at the auto repair shop:

  1. How much will it cost for parts and labor? After diagnosing the problem, the auto mechanic should be able to give you a list of the parts needed, the amount of labor needed, and a good faith estimate for both. If the cost is more than you can pay at one time, ask what the minimum work would be to make the vehicle safe or operational. It may be possible to take your vehicle back at a later time to complete the repairs.
  2. Are the parts covered by a warranty? Some parts have a guarantee that covers only a portion of the cost. Be sure you understand why a part needs to be replaced, how it will be replaced, and if there will be any additional costs.
  3. How long will the job take? Don’t leave the auto repair shop until you are clear as to how long the job will take. You may need time to make arrangement for transportation if the auto shop doesn’t provide any.

Most mechanics are more than happy to explain the auto repair made on your vehicle. Check to see if the car repair shop has any specials for services such as oil changes, tire rotation, brake inspections, and others.
