Repair shops

Being a car novice I worry about sending my car to repair shops just in case they try to rip me off. That’s why I used to go to a friend’s workshop hoping he would look after me and not rip me off.

That was a few years back when I could drop off my car and pick it up on the way to and from work. Nowadays since working from home it is quite a distance to go to my friend’s repair shop and sadly I neglected my car until I started getting all sorts of car problems.

That’s when I realized that I really need to look after my car but I didn’t want to travel far to my friend’s repair shop so I took it to my local repair shop. Surprisingly this local repair shop didn’t rip me off! They were very good with the repairs and I am most impressed with their customer service. I guess I was judging books by their covers which was the wrong thing to do. There are good reliable repairers out there and I need to trust them more than I did.

Well, I'm glad that you've changed your perception about repair shops and have started trusting them. It is of the utmost importance to do maintenance on your car on a regular basis, and it is even better to bring it to a car shop for a routine checkup. Being aware of signs and symptoms that can lead to other bigger car problems is also a useful skill.
