Should you trust the dealer or an independent shop?

  So you are experiencing some issue with your German vehicle. Whether you own a BMW or Mercedes Benz you know that you own an awesome albeit very complicated vehicle.

Why asking for "price" is the wrong question to ask

So you own a German Car (maybe its a BMW, Audi, Mercedes Benz, Mini Cooper or Volkswagen) and you are looking for an auto repair shop to service your vehicle. You know you don't want to go to the dealership since their prices are sky high and the level of service leaves you wanting. You get anxious, you worry about getting ripped off. You ask friends and family what to do. You go online and google some quick answers for your particular problem whether its a noise you hear, a fluid dripping from your car or what is the next maintenance service you need. You then go on yelp or type in a google search for the best auto repair shop in your area. Armed with all this information you call up a shop and ask, "Hey I have a noise coming from my car, I think its a gyromotion arm, how much?" The shop gives you a price and you go on and call the next shop on your list. Each shop gives you a different price. Which one do you choose? The cheapest price, right? If auto repair was a ... read more
