I finally found a shop where I feel the mechanics are being completely truthful! My car is 10 years old and needs work. But these guys told me I can hold off for a bit to save up the money. Once, they even brought me into the shop to show me what they were talking about so I had a better understanding. So far, the cost hasn't been any more than you would pay at the car dealer. They send email reminders when it's time for routine maintenance and their work is gauranteed around the country. Plus, they offer a free shuttle to and from work!
