It no secret that many drivers share a distrust for their auto repair shops. In fact, AAA conducted a study that found that two-thirds of drivers in the U.S. do not trust their auto repair shops. It is important to trust anyone working on your car, and there are some things you can do to avoid common mistakes. Here are a couple of ways to avoid getting fooled in your repair shop on April Fool’s Day!
Research, Research, Research
Start on the right foot and get to know your car. Brush up on your owner manual if it has been a while. This will make it easier for you to understand when your technician explains what they have to do to get your car. Having informed conversations with your technician will make it easier for you to judge if you would like to do business with your repair shop. In addition to knowing your car, get to know the prices of items and services you will need. Knowing a ballpark of prices for what you need will help ensure you accept the best offer.
Trust Your Gut
Your first interaction with any auto body shop should give you full confidence that you are making the right choice. When asking your questions, you should never feel pressured. Each question should get a clear, direct answer. Remember that it is okay to take a couple of days and look at other shops. If you feel pressured to make a decision that day, it isn’t the right choice.
