Choosing the Right Car Repair Shop
With the cost of vehicle repair work going up, choosing the right repair shop is very important than ever.
If you are paying a couple of hundreds of dollars to have your vehicle repaired, you had better make sure that every dollar you‘ve spent was truly required to repair your vehicle and wasn’t just an inflated store’s price or absolutely unneeded repair work.
Which store is better? The dealer? A large repair shop? A small independent store?
Each one has it’s positives and negatives.
Each one is under pressure to earn money in order to endure.
The dealer has the latest diagnostic equipment and the factory-trained service technicians, but the cost of labor, about $90 per hour, is not unusual (not to mention the cost of parts.).
Big repair shop. Costs are better than at the dealer, but the availability of the latest diagnostic equipment and factory-trained service technicians are in question.
Small repair shop. These shops simply can’t afford the investment required to buy orrent the expensive diagnostic equipment or expensive training.
Back to the initial question – how to pick the right repair shop? There is no simple answer.
Firstly, the store and repair work area ought to be tidy and the store’s service technicians ought to be ASE licensed.
There always a big question that people ask: how sincere are store’s staff members? You always need referrals from other individuals, who have used this store before, and you always have to check with local BBB (Bbb) for grievances against this repair shop.
If the nature of your vehicle’s issue has been figured out, and vehicle doesn’t need any additional diagnostic, like if you need a brake job, you can go to the little independent store if you know an excellent and sincere mechanic there. They can do an excellent job and their rates are very competitive.
If your vehicle does need a diagnostic, its always better to go to the place that has the proper diagnostic equipment (not necessarily the vehicle dealership). Check out the following info before you go and spend some money.
The majority of the cars on the roadway 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 system for so-called “trouble codes.” If scanner reveals any trouble codes, refer to the booklet that comes with the scanner.
In many cases, the booklet will give you an idea, which system is malfunctioning.
Your advantage? If you understand what system is malfunctioning, and the service advisor at the repair store tells you that something entirely different ought to be repaired, you understand what is going on.
Also, for example, if your scanner tells you that issue is your oxygen sensing unit. If the issue 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 change the sensing unit. If, after repair work is done, your scanner doesn’t show the oxygen sensing unit related trouble code, the issue was repaired!
You can save a lot of money in this manner!
Like we have stated before, the economical scanner (code reader) is your very first line of defense against high automobile repair work rates and deceitful service technicians.
Finally, proper maintenance will assist decrease unexpected repairs, which will save you money!
