The following tips should help you along the way:
You know your car. You drive it everyday & know how it feels and sounds when everything is right. So don't ignore it s warning signals. Use all your senses to inspect your car frequently.
Note when the problem occurs:
Communication is important between you and your auto repair shop. You should be prepared to describe the symptoms. ( In larger shops you will probably speak with a service writer/manager rather than the technician.)
Resist the temptation to suggest a course of repair. Just as you would do with your physician, tell where it hurts and how long so that the technician can diagnose and recommend a remedy.
Ask for explanations in layman's terms if you don't understand.
Don't rush the technician to make an on the spot diagnosis.
Before you leave, make sure you understand all the shop policies regarding labor rates, guarantees, & acceptable methods of payment.
Last but not least, Leave a phone number where you can be called.
