Solo Tip Tuesday: Does the Quote to Repair Your Car Sound High? Get a Second Opinion with These Websites

by Reba Nance on April 9, 2013

We all know to get a quote before we authorize any auto repair. But for those of us who don’t know the difference between a differential and a distributor cap, how do we know if the amount we’re being quoted is fair? There are several websites that can help. Simply enter the make, model and year of your car – you’ll be asked for your zip code, too. Some of these websites will also help diagnose the problem. Others will give you a local repair estimate in real-time. While estimates will vary, it does help to know whether it will cost $200 or $2,000!

Visit these sites for help: 2carpros.com; driverside.com; automd.com; freeautomechanic.com; and myautorepairadvice.com.

You can see this tip and others, on topics ranging from Outlook and Word help to App reviews and online tools, all here.
