This book taught me nothing.

Discover 10 of the most common car repair rip-offs and how to avoid them. If you're using conventional oil, most owner's manuals don't recommend heading to the shop until you hit the 5,000- or 7,500-mile mark. Some synthetic oils can go as high as 25,000 miles between changes. If your mechanic tries to pressure you into coming in every 3,000 miles, find a new one.

Get a written estimate before repairs, stay with the car to observe the work, and pay with a credit card so you can contest the bill. There. You just learned 90% of what this book has to offer.

Only chapter 6 (34 pages) deals with scams and rip-offs. The rest of this extremely slim volume (134 pages) teaches generic car knowledge such as explaining what AAA is, the importance of proper maintenance, and what to do if your car breaks down.

My favorite piece of useless advice from this book is if you suspect you have been ripped-off, take your car to be inspected by a trusted AAA certified mechanic. This begs the question: if you have a trusted AAA certified mechanic, why did you take your car to anyone else? Apparantly the idea is you can save money by having your oil changed, brakes serviced, radiator flushed, etc. by the cheapest advertised offers, but your trusted mechanic will still be glad to turn away paying customers to inspect your car. Now lets all clap for tinkerbell.

Look at the table of contents.

I don't know about the rest of you, but this book has already saved me money. My daughter was being quoted $368 for a brake job. She got the quote from a place offering new brakes for $59. She went in because her brakes were squeaking. I told her to take her car to another place for a second opinion. Fortunately the second repair shop had an honest guy working there. He told my daughter that a small piece of brake pad had gotten stuck and that was casuing the squeak.

I know who that reviewer is that gave this book 1 star, he's the guy that was trying to steal money from my family. After reading this book in its entirety, I can see why it won an award. It is clear, concise, and totally exposes how repairmen like that other reviewer steal from honest hard working people. I would be upset too if someone was taking my hard-stolen income.

Get the book. This writer knows his stuff.

I purchased this book in the hopes of gaining a better understanding of how to deal with auto repairs. When you take your car in to be evaluated one always wonders about the integrity of the diagnosis, estimate, and work completed. This book gave me enough tips to help me navigate through auto repairs and deal with mechanics. I felt this book was extremely helpful!
