Angie's List Auto Repair

Angie’s List, the nation’s leading provider of consumer reviews, asked highly auto repair specialists about vehicle care.

·      The importance of oil changes: Regularly change your oil – it’s typically an inexpensive service and takes care of a very important component of the vehicle. In addition, when the vehicle gets an oil change it allows the technician to inspect the other important components of the vehicle for necessary preventative/service. It’s the car owner’s responsibility to check their oil level. Check your oil frequently.

·      Got Expensive Repair Bills? Most auto repair specialists agree that the most expensive areas of your car to repair are the engine and transmission. It may be beneficial to get a second opinion with these issues.

·      Take a look: Always ask to see the old parts that were replaced and don’t be afraid to ask questions before.

·      Plan ahead: If you are going on a major road trip do not wait until the last minute to have your car serviced or repaired. Schedule this work well in advance to give yourself some time to validate the effectiveness of the repair before heading out on a trip.
