Having a car is a mix of joy and terror. The freedom of driving anywhere anytime, except until a certain sound goes off and you start doing mental calculations on just how much it might cost. Some of these lights that might show up on your dashboard and you wonder just how long the vehicle will stumble on.

Add on top the fact that many mechanics are perhaps not the most honest individuals, and it’s easier to understand why so many people end up driving cars that hardly function properly. One survey found that the majority of Americans are not actually happy with their car service provider, as they feel like issues are overdiagnosed and fixes end up being overcharged.
