TIP! Know what your dashboard warning lights mean, and keep an eye on them. Use them to your advantage, they’re put there to guide you.

You can easily find an auto mechanic that is good if you get referred to them. Get recommendations from family and friends. You can find out about a mechanics quality of work, their price, and overall satisfaction. People will tell you about the mechanic’s honesty and if their experience was a good one.

TIP! Keep washing your vehicle, even in winter. Your car may get dirty again quickly, but all that buildup is terrible for your car.

Be careful that your mechanic does not attempt to perform unneeded repairs. A reliable mechanic will tell you if any parts are worn down and need replacing. But, they should ask for your approval before replacing them. If an auto technician performs unnecessary repairs or repairs that were not agreed upon beforehand, don’t return to them for further services.

TIP! Check the air pressure in your tires when you fill your gas tank. Be sure your tires do not have something embedded in them.

Never leave anything in your car when dropping it off for repairs. The mechanic might need to clean out the car before performing repair work, and your personal items could be lost. Clear out your trunk, too.

TIP! Before you drop off your car at a repair shop, take pictures of what the car looks like beforehand. This way if you suspect something has been removed without your approval, you have photographic proof.

Cute keychains are fun, but they are not healthy for your car. The ignition cannot hold the weight of a big key chain. If the key starts to stick, its time to replace the tumblers and say goodbye to your troll buddy!

TIP! If your car has been having a small problem that you think is minor, it may be a good idea to have it checked out anyway. A seemingly small problem may grow into a major one if don’t pay attention to it.

Find out how much a mechanic charges for the repair, including labor, before you hand over your keys. A lot of places will put rates in the fine print and so you need to read over any paperwork carefully. You should understand how you are billed by your mechanic. Some shops have estimated repair times that are established by specific manufacturers. Some repairs that are deemed “minor” may be all day jobs according to the manufacturer.

TIP! Be sure that the technician you choose is certified. You should be sure they have been approved by the ASE.
