How to Avoid Getting Duped
If you find your car under the weather in a strange town, you’ll have to take it to the car doctor—i.e., the mechanic. Now, how do you know you can trust the local mechanic? You can’t. Many people find themselves forking over more money for simple repairs than they realize, but this trick could possibly help you from getting swindled.
Before asking the mechanic about what you need fixed, talk to them about a part of your car that you know is in working order. That way, you’ll sound like you actually know something about cars, and they might feel less inclined to overcharge you.
