I'm a single woman who is in need of a superior mechanic to fix the struts on my car. I have no idea what certifications they must have, where or how to find a good one, what do I need to know from A-Z, Beginning to end, on how to hire a mechanic.  Should he specialize in certain car makes such as Lexus, in my case. If he owns his own shop, I should check BBB and who or what else. How do I know he's truthful, what should his crendtials be etc?

    Hello Tricia, that is a good question. Some of the credentials you should look for well outside of ASE certifications is a business license, BBB Accreditation and if required in your area a DMV repair facility number. ASE certifications does not guarantee good business practices, but the other areas I mentioned to review will increase the odds of better business integrity. Also if this is an established business, there should also be reviews about the business available for you to read. I hope this helps.

      He should be a ASE master certified and I would take a look at the mechanic finder on this page and make some calls and you can always get quotes from different places just to get a feeling if you would like to do business with them
