It sounds silly, but a mechanic with a neat garage will be a sign of professionalism that you can’t afford to do without. Obviously there will always be oil and dirt in a garage, but organization is key. Ask simple questions to find out if they are the right mechanic for you. Do they have any specialties? Or any types of cars they can’t work on? Ask around and find out if there are any good recommendations from friends.

Make sure the mechanic answers your questions in layman’s terms. If he or she is talking in a language you don’t speak, it may be a sign they don’t want you to understand what they are saying. Be wary if there’s a communication problem, because that can cost you big bucks later.

And make sure you know the shop’s policies. Ask about service labor charges, rates for parts, and any guarantees for work. Bring your car in for something minor, and see if it all works out in your interest. If so, a larger scale issue may be safe to bring to this mechanic.
