Auto Road Service | Tips for Choosing Your Auto Repair Shop

What to look for when choosing a repair shop

No matter how well-built a car is, eventually it will at least need routine maintenance. How do you choose an auto repair service that will give you both fair pricing and good service?

The Federal Trade Commission has a publication for download called "Taking the Scare Out of Auto Repair" [pdf|128k]that gives a few helpful tips.

Among their recommendations:

  • Ask for suggestions from friends and family.
  • Shop around by telephone and compare prices
  • Look for a shop before you actually need one to prevent being forced into a last minute decision
