    Auto repair shops are Just like the people who own, run , manage, and work in them. They are VERY diverse. One may have a guy who is an absolute genius on one system of a car and not so much on other systems... many are pretty good at the mechanical stuff.. changing parts like brake pads, normal wear and tear items and not so good at diagnosing a difficult problem. they are an aspect of the people in them... If they are good honest folks, they may not know what is wrong with your car, but be willing to work to find the problem or even recommend someone to take it to. Some shops just won't do electrical system work... some won't mess with tires (flats, balance, etc.) some will only do body work, (hence the term body shop).

    Most auto shops will or are capable of tune-ups, and maintenance, and general repairs. But on the same hand they will usually recommend someone if it requires a "specialist". Transmission shops won't want to fix your dome light, body shop won't want to fix leaking exhaust gasket, etc...

    To be honest I think the days of a common repair shop are kinda going away. the cost of more and more specialized tools and equipment, Cars of the later models require so much more computer technology, etc... On the same note, shops that are doing work on older cars and older technology are going away to... As that technology is outdated and obsolete... so then you have to start looking for a shop "specializing" in older models. Every shop is different. and it is hard to say that any one of them is the right place to be when you have a particular problem. Just hope they are honest. There are some shady ones out there... but they usually have a reputation, so go to 2 or 3 and ask about others, and who may be the best for your problem.

    Good luck.

    I own a keep and we in no way mark any areas over retail, yet I actually have a small keep with in basic terms 2 techs and a receptionist and relatively low overhead. It relatively takes lots to maintain a fix facility open, so some distance as taxes, coverage, keep kit and supplies. so lots extra time and funds is spent on maximum shopper automobiles than whats on their bill. advertising areas retail or 15-25% over merely starts to cover a number of it. i does no longer comprehend, yet extra suitable shops ought to relatively matter on the markup. i've got in no way heard of a wealthy fix keep proprietor.

    Yes, they cover the basics but they are also good in ripping off people so have a second opinion from another shop and bring an adult male figure with you to talk to them.For tires,it's cheaper to go to a tire dealerships or to Costco/Sam's Club.
