Honest Auto Repair Advice



I fix cars and answer people's auto repair questions for a living. My friends and family keep telling me "we wish you lived closer so we could take our car to someone we trust". I believe everyone should have a good, trustworthy mechanic. That is why I created this site.

Throughout the pages of this website I will be explaining many different aspects of my industry. I have years of experience as an automotive technician, automotive manager and as a do it yourself mechanic just learning about cars. I have filled this site with my knowledge of the industry to help you decide whether you can fix it yourself, where to have you car repaired if you cannot fix it yourself, how to interpret car repair estimates, how to avoid getting ripped off (car repair fraud) and lots of other things.

As an automotive mechanic I have dealt with many people and some people who had been previously ripped off by an auto repair shop. I hate to say it but it is too easy for repair shops to rip people off. As a consumer the best thing that you can do is learn about your car and about the automotive industry. I have provided a look into it inside the pages of my automotive website.
