The world of car repair is filled with mechanics both good and bad. So how do you tell them apart? The answer is more readily obvious than you might think. A good mechanic (and a good shop in general) will have certain traits that should be easy for anyone to pick out if they know what to look for and they are willing to do the research. It’s worth it to do this research, as it could save you endless amount of money and frustration when taking your vehicle in for work. Here are the things you should be looking for when searching for a worthy mechanic.
Have regular car suspension and chassis parts inspected because proper car alignment or wheel alignment helps, too. Bent wheels, axles, bad shocks, broken springs, and such create engine drag and are unsafe at high traveling speeds.
Document and write down everything. As well as compensating for lapses in memory, it provides a proper paper trail for a post crisis assessment and can serve as a useful training tool during dispatcher training.
Shutting down the air conditioner and rolling down the windows may be a good idea to save gas when out for a leisurely nature drive but not on a freeway. Keeping windows closed when traveling at highway speeds is recommended because open windows cause air drag, reducing your mileage by 10%.
Ask yourself these questions. How many auto repair shops send out thank you cards after service?. How many auto repair shops make ‘follow up’ phone calls to be sure everything was completed as expected? How many autodijelovi shops send out ‘Thank You’ gifts to customers who spend a ‘predetermined’ amount of money?
Don’t dwell on mistakes. Make a quick correction and move on. On the other hand, make sure you admit it when you mess up. It is alright to admit you’re having a rough day too.
