ASK the locals!
Family and friends are good sources also.
Spend a couple of evenings at local watering holes and steer the conversation to car repair and take notes - the places which crop up as bad more than once or twice should probably be avoided.
Why more than once you might ask? Because Every shop occasionally makes mistakes and I can spend an evening shooting the bull anywhere and hear one horror story about any particular establishment given enough time - but if a shop really does shoddy or incompetent work there will be any number of tales told about them.Source(s): 30 years behind the wrench.
