I loved this episode! Please do more car repair shows, this is something I want to learn more about. Ever since getting my 04 Ranger I've been trying to do all of the repairs myself. Can always use tips from a professional. Thanks for a great episode.

Honest Auto Mechanics

Great show and information.

I have a local mechanic that I use for items which I am unable to take care of myself. I have often felt guilty that he undercharged me for hours worked compared to "book hours".

Your insight has relieved my guilt and made me even more confident that he a GOOD mechanic and I can feel comfortable referring friends to him.
