When it is time to take your car to the shop, you don’t need to know everything there is to know about cars, but you should know how to find a reliable shop and mechanic. Whether you drive a sports car or a mini-van, you want the job done right. Nationally, Better Business Bureau received more than 14,000 complaints against auto repair servicers in 2012. While there are many credible auto services, it is important to choose the right one for you.


The Better Business Bureau of Central Oklahoma officers this advice when looking for the right auto mechanic:


Get familiar with your car and local auto services before you need one. Waiting until your car brakes down causes you to make rushed or panicked decisions that may not be in your best interest. Also, make sure to read your owner’s manual and become familiar with your vehicle’s service schedule so that you are not caught off guard when it is time to take your car into the shop.
