If there is a quick way to do a job versus a better way to do it, which one will your mechanic choose? Will they charge you fairly for a lasting quality repair or charge you less for inferior work that makes you to return sooner?
Consider how their pricing compares to other mechanics. Are they the cheapest? Why? Are they the most expensive? Why? Good work that costs more now will be less painful on your bank account than lesser quality work that is cheap,which needs to be revisited multiple times.
5)Good Diagnostic Skills
Your mechanic should apply skill and effort towards diagnosing problems instead of guessing with parts? You should always be given a good reason to replace a part.
