    Is there such a thing as an honest mechanic shop?

    I pose this question to those like me who have some mechanical knowledge on thier own. To those of you who don't well how would you know if you got ripped off?

    Depends on how much money the mechanic needs.

    you pretty much know if you have been ripped off, by performance regarding whatever was fixed.  Being an independant Carsaleswoman I have tried a few different mechanics and I always go to them when I have the free time to watch their every move, as they do whatever replacement or repair.  WHo is going to be threatened by a pair of extra eyes?  Unless you are up to no good!  Beat it you bum......... I'd say....I have found a mechanic that I have trust in plus he is very accomodating....ciao

    Yes the one's that just closed there door's , it seem funny / sad ,
    its like people like getting ripped off because , Honest Shops seem to not stay busy very long , it seem's if you try and do a job at a fair price  ,consumer's think your taking short cut's  , and they like to run back to the dealer's  where in some cases the Tech's are very young and not so good at what they do  but they  can quote you the text from a book all day long  !!
