How to Find a Reliable Automotive Mechanic in Cincinnati

The Specialist Touch

Anyone who owns a car — especially something special like a European model such as a Porsche or a Jaguar — has had their share of “dating” horror stories trying to find a reliable mechanic. You can’t always tell by appearances. A shop seems to be up on their certifications. Their auto garage looks clean and professional, one of the best you’ve seen in Cincinnati. So you hire them to repair your Porsche — only to be taken to the cleaners on work that turned out to not only not be necessary — but they overcharge you for it too!

Appearances can be deceiving. But if you do your homework, you can spot many of the shadsters before you even let them near your vehicle. The bottom line is a great mechanic looks to earn your business and trust through great work. They’re not just looking to this job, but a long term relationship. Here’s how to spot the good guys.

Get All Work Authorized in Writing

Always get everything in writing. Signing a blank authorization form is like selling your soul. Make sure every repair is described, authorized, and estimated. Sure, estimates can vary, but if the price is off by more than $50, they should call and consult you about the extra expense. Any decent mechanic will guarantee their work and stand by the price they quoted you, unless there is a very good reason, and only after you’ve agreed to the new price.

The Specialist Touch

Our mechanics own them and have serviced them their whole lives. These cars require specialized care. We understand the science behind keeping a beautiful European machine running in top order.

How to Spot a Quality Mercedes Mechanic in Cincinnati

You value your Mercedes and want it fixed by only the best. When choosing the right mechanic to work on your Mercedes, start by inspecting their shop. Is it clean and organized? Is it busy? Does it have return customers? Are they interested in building a relationship or just billing you for a work order? Make sure they specialize in Mercedes. And make sure they don’t overcharge you or double charge you. Make sure all work is invoiced, and that the price does not go up substantially without your approval. Running up the bill without your consent should be a serious warning sign.
