Choosing the Right Car Repair Shop
With the expense of vehicle repair work increasing, choosing the right repair shop is essential than ever.
If you are paying a couple of hundreds of dollars to have your car fixed, you had better make sure that every dollar you‘ve spent was actually required to repair your vehicle and wasn’t just an inflated shop’s price or absolutely unnecessary repair work.
Which shop is much better? The dealership? A large repair shop? A little independent shop?
Each one has it’s positives and negatives.
Each one is under pressure to make money in order to make it through.
The dealership has the latest diagnostic equipment and the factory-trained service technicians, but the expense of labor, about $90 per hour, is not unusual (not to mention the expense of parts.).
Large repair shop. Costs are much better than at the dealership, but the accessibility of the latest diagnostic equipment and factory-trained service technicians are in question.
Little repair shop. These stores simply can’t afford the investment required to buy orrent the pricey diagnostic equipment or pricey training.
Back to the original question – how to pick the right repair shop? There is no simple response.
First off, the shop and repair work area need to be clean and the shop’s service technicians need to be ASE certified.
There constantly a big question that people ask: how honest are shop’s workers? You constantly need referrals from other people, who have used this shop before, and you constantly have to check with local BBB (Bbb) for grievances against this repair shop.
If the nature of your vehicle’s problem has been determined, and vehicle doesn’t need any additional diagnostic, like if you need a brake job, you can go to the small independent shop if you know a great and honest mechanic there. They can do a great job and their rates are very competitive.
If your car does need a diagnostic, its constantly much better to go to the place that has the correct diagnostic equipment (not necessarily the vehicle dealership). Check out the following information before you go and spend some money.
The majority of the vehicles on the road today have the OBDII – on-board diagnostic system. If you have inexpensive scanner (code reader) that cost $50 – $80, you can link this scanner to the connector below the steering column and scan on-board diagnostic computer for so-called “trouble codes.” If scanner shows any problem codes, refer to the pamphlet that comes with the scanner.
For the most part, the pamphlet will give you an idea, which system is malfunctioning.
Your benefit? If you understand what system is malfunctioning, and the service consultant at the repair shop informs you that something entirely different need to be repaired, you understand what is going on.
Also, for example, if your scanner informs you that problem is your oxygen sensing unit. If the problem is not the wire, that connects the sensing unit to the vehicle’s electrical system, you can call around, get rates for the part and labor, and pick a place to replace the sensing unit. If, after repair work is done, your scanner doesn’t show the oxygen sensing unit related problem code, the problem was repaired!
You can save a lot of money in this manner!
Like we have stated before, the low-cost scanner (code reader) is your first line of defense against high auto repair work prices and deceitful service technicians.
Lastly, correct maintenance will help minimize unforeseen repairs, which will save you money!
