Before Your Next Car Service or Repair

No one will argue with you that having a mechanic you can totally trust is invaluable. Many people are leery about bringing their car into the shop for service because they don’t know a lot about cars themselves and suspect that repair people may be taking them for a ride (pardon the pun) when it comes to automotive repairs in Spokane.

That’s one thing you’ll never have to worry about with Tune Tech in Spokane, WA. We ensure that every one of our mechanics has the best interest of the customer at heart. This is how we gain our customers’ trust and their repeat business.

So let’s say you’ve chosen Tune Tech as your trusted car service shop. Let’s also assume that you don’t know very much about cars. In this situation, you may think that there isn’t much you can do prior to bringing your car in for service, but you’re wrong! Here are a few things you can do to really help out the mechanic who will be servicing your vehicle:

  • Review the car’s maintenance schedule.

You may be experiencing a problem, only to review the car’s maintenance and realize that it’s 2,000 miles past its regular oil change. You will do yourself and the mechanic a favor if you know this information before they have to look it up. If you don’t use the same garage from one oil change to the next (not a good idea, by the way) then your mechanic won’t have any idea when the last time it was serviced was.

  • Have the car cleaned up.

First, a clean car is much easier to service than a dirty one. Consider it a favor to your mechanic that dust and grim doesn’t get all over their clothes while they complete your service. It slows down your service and is frustrating for the mechanic to have to move things in order to make repairs. Also, we can better identify problems when your car is clean and we can see, feel and smell all its working parts.

  • Document any issues.

It really helps when we know what we’re looking for. We can better identify your specific problem when we know what’s been leading up to your visit. If you can note any odd sounds or behaviors, this will be valuable information for us. If the symptoms persist or get worse, we can also use that information to diagnose the problem better. You can use the internet to find terms that will best explain your car’s behavior to us.

You aren’t doing yourself any favors by not bringing your car in for service just because you don’t know much about cars. Tune Tech can simply explain any issues that are going on with your car, and we can even more easily repair these problems.

Don’t wait about bringing your car in for simple services. Otherwise, you could cause major damage that could have been prevented. Call us today for any type of car services or repairs!
