Last week, Tyler and I took our car to my Uncle's mechanic shop and left to go on Vacay! It was so much fun and we saw so many people-thanks to everyone who made time to see us! We returned safe and sound, just in time for me to get the worst cold of a lifetime. Anyway, last night we went to Bountiful to pick up our car and my Uncle shared something with me that I would like to share with all of you:
Apparently, many mechanics are "inventing" or "fixing" problems on cars that aren't even there, or letting something slip loose so that you'll have to come back and pay more, etc. At this point, many consumers are massaging our older cars and trying to get as much out of them as possible! But are things really being fixed? I would be very careful if you have to go get a tune-up, etc, and if you get something fixed/replaced, ask to see your old part (which is such an old standard; ask your dad-he'll tell you the same thing) which ensures that it actually got fixed. Ask around and really search for a safe place to get your car fixed/oil changed, etc. I have a few great places around the SLC area for anyone in need! I wouldn't have imagined that something like this was really happening, but believe it or not, I'm more naive that I thought I was - so keep your eyes peeled! Just a word to the wise.
Hope your summers are going great!
