Be sure to ask lots of questions when taking your car to an auto repair service. You should ask about the problems you have and what to do to avoid them in the future. An ounce of prevention can save you a lot of money over time.
Save some money by using your local auto parts store’s diagnostic equiptment. Many are more than happy to let their customers use it because you may then purchase parts at their store. You benefit because you may have a small problem you can fix or you can just tell your mechanic what you want done.
Never buy from a mechanic who promises that parts will last over the full lifetime of a vehicle. This is often just for you to have to pay them more cash. For example, there are cars that are sold with “lifetime” radiator fluid. Although this special transmission fluid does last longer than regular fluid, it still needs to be replaced after 80,000 miles.
