All You’ve Ever Wanted To Know About Car Repairs

By Gregory Cowell

The need for auto repair terrifies many people. What you have to be sure of is that you’re on top of getting the best repairs for your vehicle by knowing what to do or where to go. Review the information below and you will be better prepared to find a way to get your car on the road.

Always know how much your repairs will cost before handing your car over to a service department. If you don’t understand something, make sure to clarify it first. Don’t be surprised with extra costs when the car has been fixed.

Request OEM parts. These parts are original and from the manufacturer. Generic parts can be cheaper but OEM parts will last longer and usually come with a better warranty. Getting a good deal on generic parts like borg warner turbo means you might have to purchase the same parts again and pay a mechanic to change them within the next few years.

When taking your vehicle to a shop, ask any questions you may have about it. Be sure the questions involve the problems you are having with your car and what you can do to prevent it from happening again. Prevention is a great way to save lots of money.

When you need a major repair done, get numerous estimates. Most shops are reliable but some mechanics will find additional repairs to charge you more. Look for mechanics that know the ins and outs of your car. They may have an easier time understanding what needs to be done to your car.

Before paying an auto repair shop for work done to your car, take it for a test drive to see if it is working properly. If you don’t, you may still experience the same problem with the car once you get it home.

Make sure you replace old parts with OEM parts. These parts come from the manufacturer of your car. Generic parts may cost less, but you cannot really tell if they are the best quality. A great deal can cost you tons down the road.

Ask for labor rates or prices before hiring a mechanic. Make sure you’re asking questions if you’re not sure about the shop’s rates. You need to understand how and why you are being billed for your car repairs. Shops also often give you estimated repair costs and times. Some repairs that are deemed “minor” may be all day jobs according to the manufacturer.

You do not need to spend a fortune to get your car fixed if it breaks down. Many times it is possible to fix your own problems. Use these tips to get the vehicle started again.
