Working with a Repair Shop
Step 1: What should I bring with me to the repair shop?
- Make a list, check it twice. If you have a history of the repairs made to your car, bring the list with you. Write out a list of your automotive concerns and symptoms so you don't forget the details.
- Take careful note of things like: unusual sounds, odors, leaks or smoke, problems in handling or braking, any changes in your vehicle's performance such as oil and gas usage.
- Recall the recall. Bring any notices of recalls or warranty concerns.
Check your manual. Refer to your vehicle's owner's manual for
the suggested maintenance and service schedules.
