It seems that everyone today is conscience about saving money, and due to the recent economic conditions, it’s easy to understand that. Many of us take on home projects for that very reason. But when it comes to car repairs, I would like everyone to be careful and ensure you know exactly what’s involved before you attempt any car repair.
The other day we had a car towed in with an electrical problem. The customer, thinking that he could replace his own battery, installed the battery, but reversed the cables on the battery and consequently shorted out and damaged very expensive electronic components. The repair for the electrical damage was over $1800! This could have been avoided.
Within the past few years we have seen a rise in incidents like this. In spite of what you hear on TV and radio commercials from companies like AutoZone, it’s not that easy to work on today’s cars. Professional mechanics are trained and continuously receive updated training to stay on top of all new automotive technologies.
We are not opposed to consumers wanting to work on their cars. However, my advice is to make sure you know every aspect of the repair and seek the advice of a professional before attempting any repair on your own. We are always more than happy to speak to our customers to avoid an unfortunate and unneeded costly additional repair.
