How to Choose the Right Mechanic

Know Your Vehicle Inside and Out

The first step is to get to know your vehicle thoroughly. After all, how can you expect to know if a mechanic did a good job with your vehicle's maintenance if you have no idea of how your vehicle regularly works? Even if you're not interested in mechanics at all, reading your vehicle's owner's manual can be very helpful. Moreover, you should pay close attention to how your vehicle performs. Notice the sounds it emits, the motion it has, and more, so you can recognize when it is or isn't doing well.

Seek Out References

Of course, the next logical step would be to ask people you trust if they know a trustworthy, professional mechanic for you. Their word can become the trust stamp you need to know you're leaving your vehicle (along with your wallet) in good hands. If you don't have someone to guide you in this respect, and even if you have a referenced mechanic, it's suggested that you take your search online. Look for reviews that give you a clearer panorama on the mechanic's work ethic, experience, and more. This will help you decide if they're the right fit for you.

Pay Attention to Official Validation

You can trust your friends and family's opinion as much as you want. Still, if they aren't particularly savvy when it comes to vehicles and mechanics, their word will only hold so much weight. This means that the next step in finding a reliable mechanic, is to search for official validation. Look at their credentials, look at their certificates, look at their affiliations. These can be incredibly telling and will give you a more steady ground to base your trust upon.

Do Some Research

So let's say you found a mechanic who's doing good so far in the selection process. You take your vehicle to them and they give you an estimate on how much the repairs are, what your vehicle needs to get done, and more. Before you agree to these terms, you need to do some research. Don't go in blindly. Compare prices with other auto shops in the area, get a better idea of what the procedure entails, and generally, be more on top of the situation, so you won't end up losing money because of it.

If you want to keep your engine strong for longer, purchase AMSOIL's Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil, the most effective synthetic oil in Show Low.

Check Out the Shop

Before you hand over the keys to the new-found mechanic, however, there are still a few things you need to do. If possible, you should ask the mechanic for a tour of their shop. You can tell a lot about them from their workplace, so pay attention while you walk by. For instance, take note of how clean the place is, the kind of machinery they use, how well-maintained everything is, among other telling signs.

Start Out Small

Little by little, you're learning to let go and to trust the mechanic. If you feel you still have to be cautious, however, you should start out small. This means that you can take your vehicle in to get some light repairs (for example, a synthetic oil change and a routine inspection may do the trick). If you like the work they did, how they did it, the price they gave you, and how they behaved with you, you can move on and start commissioning more complicated and expensive stuff.

Ask Them Questions

Last but not least, why not simply ask questions to the mechanic you want to work with? If during this process, some questions arose regarding the work the mechanic does, they would the best source to answer them correctly. You can also search for clues in their answers. This way, you'll learn more and more about them, and you'll begin to trust them and what they do.
