We’ve all heard it before, “with great power, comes great responsibility,” and whether you’re swinging from sky-scrapers in the big city or supercharging your car—the maxim holds true! One of the unique aspects of owning a car fitted for extra power is the extra maintenance needed. If you’re not keeping an eye on the areas we’ve outlined below, you might not be getting the most out of your car … or worse, you could be ruining your system!
Let’s be honest, a mechanic/auto tech is one of the least trusted very important people you need in your life. In the great USA our cars are part of our identity and they are vital to our everyday efficiency. We need our cars. A mechanic is a car doctor; so finding a good doctor for a machine that takes you to and from work, helps pick up your kids from school or soccer practice, takes you on a road trip or just takes you to the grocery store to get food, is extremely important. Unfortunately for all of us, mechanics kind of have a bad reputation for not being as trustworthy as we would like. Is this true for all them? Definitely not, so we are going to help point out some things that might help you find a good mechanic. Hopefully after you do that, your mechanic—customer relationship flourishes and you have a good trusted friend fixing your car every time.
First thing is first, mechanics are people, they are hard workers and many of them have families and bills to pay, so paying them is absolutely necessary. You cannot avoid paying to maintain your car and if you find a mechanic you trust, you should not try to short them for the good work they are doing. Being their loyal customer and friend, should not mean getting exceptional quality for below average prices. Be ready to pay what they deserve.
