A site that I have found helpful in this area is RepairPal, this is a great site for completely taking the guess work out of auto repair. The site is easy to use and navigate.
For instance, if you are looking for a reputable auto mechanic in your area just click auto shop directory you will see a box to type in your local. Just say you live in San Diego, you will see an option for San Diego Auto Repair.
You can also easily check the model of your car. You can see the information for a 99 Ford F-150 , the pros and cons, reviews, recalls, questions and answers, etc. I can see overall this seems to be a reputable model.
I remember my first car; used of course, the engine light kept coming on and I was completely clueless on how to handle the situation. At RepairPal you can check the engine light . Here you will see a bevy of information, you also have the option of posting questions to the RepairPal community, I really like that this service is completely free. I wish I had this information at the time it would of saved me quite a bit of money.
Are you afraid that your current mechanic is overcharging you? RepairPrice Estimator enables you to get an average estimate. The more knowledgeable you are the less likely to get ripped off.
I love having information at my fingertips, this is why I can't fathom a world without the Internet.
