I would like to formally welcome you to one of the most honest blogs you will ever encounter that has been written by an actual mechanic. Operating in the beautiful Central Coast of California, I am a self employed mechanic with drive and ambition to help people understand their car is a very complex machine that needs to be taken care of to extend its lifetime!
Its true, Mechanics have a bad reputation. Dishonest and filthy people who will do anything to fish every last dollar out of your bank account during your time of need. However, don’t get me wrong, there are always bad apples, and just one can ruin the bunch. I am attempting to change this stigma by providing completely free estimates and an easy to understand repair estimate so you really know whats going on under the hood.
I have a few core principles:
- First, always get a second opinion from a mechanic that is NOT trying to sell you something.
- Second, being INFORMED is important, you drive every day. Your car needs to be RELIABLE!
- Lastly, Trust in the A.S.E. SEAL. A certified mechanic has gone out of his way to prove he knows your car. “Backyard Bob” might provide a cheap service, but he probably watched one YouTube video and decided to give it a go. Not to mention, “Dishonest Dave” Just wants to up-sell you more parts and services you don’t actually need.
I hope you find plenty of useful information on this blog, and I look forward to helping you understand your car better, and answer any questions you may have. I can be reached through the comment section on this blog, the contact page, and my social media links!
