I need to find a good trustworthy mechanic
Location, location, location.
I’m good, but not willing to travel more than 100 miles. And charge extra for every 20.
You can start with the “Mechanics Files” link on this website. Post the location and somebody on the forum might be able to give a recommendation.
Ask your friends and neighbors for recommendations. I’ve been going to the same mechanic for 14-15 years based on my neighbor’s recommendation.
Ask friends neighbors and family for suggestions. Just stay totally away from the quick oil change places.
…and stay away from Midas, Meineke, Monro, Sears, AAMCO, and all other chain operations.
