One of the best ways to find a good auto mechanic is by looking at reviews on sites such as Yelp and Angie's List. By reading reviews, customers can find out other customers' experiences.
Yelp offers customers positive and negative reviews on its website and in a mobile app. To help with the Yelp search, type in "auto repair" and enter a zip code. Results can be filtered by most reviewed and highest rated in a particular area.
Angie's List has a vetting process for its reviews, and offers a number of reviews for all types of businesses, including mechanics. There are a small number of reviews on the site, but they are generally honest and helpful.
When using a Web browser, to search for a qualified mechanic, be sure to enter keywords like "auto mechanic" and a ZIP code for accurate results. Skip the paid ads at the top of the page and navigate from there.
