NBC4 Responds: 6 Things to Do When Your Car Needs Repairs

Here are six things to do when your car need repairs: 

  • Check with family and friends for recommendations
  • Search for mechanics online. You can check the Better Business Bureau for ratings
  • Call the mechanic before you go. Ask if they offer free estimates.
  • Before you authorize repairs, make sure you receive a written estimate
  • If the mechanic can't return your veicle the same day you drop it off, ask for the written estimate for the time of repairs
  • If the mechanic won't give you everything in writing, walk away.
