How to Find a Reliable Mechanic

At Redding Kia we care about our customers, so we put effort into helping them understand how their vehicles work and how to take care of them. A common pain point for car owners is getting ripped off at the mechanic. Although there are many reputable, honest mechanics, some aren't so honest. You can find a reliable mechanic by researching potential car repairs before committing to paying for them and learning about your specific car's anatomy.

When you take your car to a mechanic, you should always research the repairs they recommend. Look at how long the repairs should take since dishonest mechanics will charge you for 2 hours when it only took 30 minutes. Also research how much the needed parts cost. It's normal for mechanics to charge slightly more for the parts, but untrustworthy mechanics charge a significant amount more. To further protect yourself from money-grabbing mechanics, learn about your specific car model. You will have a better understanding of what may really need fixing once you understand all of the terms.

Knowledge about your vehicle and the habit of researching whatever a mechanic tells you will help you find the ones who are really reliable. You can bring your car in to our service center in Redding, CA as well when it's in need of repairs.
