      My experience – with both body work and with mechanial and/or engine repairs – has been that the fix-it shops actually do a better job, at a much lower cost. But that’s just MY experience, I don’t know if it’s that way everywhere…. One of the experiences I had was when my husband’s Tauraus had a recall notice on it for something, after warranty ran out. We took it to the dealer, and within 15 minutes, they called me with an “additional” list of repairs that needed to be done immediately, at a cost of over $1200. I said no thank you, just do the recall work. The next day we took the car in to Meinecke, and they looked it over and said “you don’t need this. You don’t need that. Nothing wrong with this”…. One of the things the dealer told me we needed immediately was a new battery. That was four years ago, and we just replaced it this month. Up until then, it never gave us a
      problem and never failed to start the car. KP
