Trusty Mechanics

I currently live in Tampa and as my car is getting older, me and my Dad have decided that it’s time I find a trusty mechanic instead of going to the dealer all the time for various work I may need in the future. Is there any way I can get some help with local mechanics that I can trust in the Tampa area?



Thank you!

You can try Angie’s List to see if there is any info on any garage or dealership you might be considering. Also try the Better Business Bureau.

Ask everyone you know where they get their auto work done. After a while, a few names will be repeated. That short list will be a good place to start.
