Check to see whether repairs may involve items under warranty and what
conditions apply to warranty service. The BBB suggests that you get
an estimate prior to authorizing service, preferably in writing. Be
sure to understand what is included with any flat- rate repair fee
prior to service. Communicate effectively with your mechanic by
describing exactly how the car is behaving. Ask if the shop mechanics
are certified by the National Institute for Automotive Service
Excellence. Ask about any guarantee or warranty and get a copy in
writing.
