Atlanta car mechanics have specialized tools and training that you don’t. You have to trust them to some extent when it comes to repairing your vehicle.
But some mechanics are unscrupulous and may take advantage of your trust by providing low-quality parts or services. The actions of a dishonest mechanic could even result in a dangerous vehicle accident.
Here are some signs that your current mechanic may be doing you a disservice.
Your mechanic won’t show you the old parts that need replacing.
If your mechanic says that a pipe had a hole, a hose had a crack, or a brake pad was worn down, ask to see the part and see how it compares to a new one. A shady mechanic might go ahead and throw out the old part without showing it to you first.
Your mechanic is always incidentally “discovering” problems whenever you bring in your vehicle for basic repair.
The keen eye of your mechanic could catch a potential problem during a routine inspection or oil change. But this happens every time you’re in the garage, it could mean your mechanic is looking for ways to make more money.
Your vehicle breaks down again soon after having the repair.
Sometimes a car repair doesn’t turn out as expected. Even the most honest mechanics can still make honest mistakes. But there’s no excuse for negligence when it comes to the safety of your vehicle.
If you’ve been injured in a vehicle accident that may be due to negligence on the part of your mechanic, then you may have a case.
