8 ways to Protect yourself from Nightmare Mechanics

Not all shops are the built the same and not all mechanics know everything. In fact, some shops designate certain mechanics to only do ONE type of job. You can imagine this limits their knowledge and ability to diagnose a car as efficiently or properly as someone who inspects a variety of vehicles and problems daily.  

Top 8 Tips from Phobia Auto 

  1. Choose an auto repair and service shop you can trust: there are many shops around the area, it can be hard to know who you can trust and who to steer clear of. Trust is earned and you should get a good feeling on your very first visit!
  2. Avoid one trick Pony's: You wouldn’t go to the eye doctor for dental work, so don’t go to a mechanic that only specializes in mainly one type of work or one brand of vehicle. You want a mechanic that has a multitude and variety of experience working on cars. Not only does this help the work to be done RIGHT but also makes sure that if there is something else wrong with your car they will recognize it. Not all vehicles are built the same so don’t assume one size fits all.
  3. Pick a journeyman: Red seal journeymen mechanics are the top dogs of the automotive industry and they are exactly who you want working on your car. Fun Fact - Phobia has 3 on staff with over 60 years combined experience!
  4. Browse social media for photos: what types of vehicles do they work on, would you trust them with a Lamborghini? 
  5. Read reviews: Whilst reviews aren’t a perfect picture of a shop, they sure do help. Check the number of reviews before you check the rating. In many cases a high rating with a low number of reviews isn’t as good as a bit of a lower rating from a large number of reviews. 
  6. Ask questions: A great automotive shop has no problem answering your questions. If you feel unsure, ask! There are no dumb questions when it comes to mechanics.
  7. Check out the shop in person: Clean shop = clean work. NO good shop is disorganized. You can tell a lot about a shop by how clean their work bays are and how happy the staff seem.
  8. Check the parking lot: Is the shop busy and full of cars? It better be! A busy shop is a good sign that quality work is being done.
