      My girlfriends nephew works for an auto dealer and this is what I learned. The mechanic at a dealer is self employed. Most of them want a quick fix problems. No one wans to work on a trans it takes for ever and they are not making much money. But on the other hand the new vehicles today are so complex that the dealer has better knowledge and equipment to fix it. We drive simple vehicles. We are probably the only people in town who do not have a remote to unlock the car doors. They are a Saturn and Honda. We have vary simple cars and so we go to a private machanic that we trust and he is vary honest. We have had bad experience with dealers even when the vehicles
      were under the warranty. We are on one income and we save by going to a privately owned mechanic.


      My experience with ‘The Dealer’ has
      been horrible, I have always been
      over charged and the work so-so if
      that. Just because it’s a dealership doesn’t
      means it’s always DONE RIGHT. My
      experience has been based on BMW, Ford,
      Lincoln, Fiat, and Buick dealerships.
      Also, the little golden book they use to quote your charges, so you won’t be
      overcharged LOL, the inside secret at most
      dealerships is the mechanic is paid a % of
      his quote-work completed, regardless of time spent. It is in the mechanic’s
      interest to move the car out as fast as he
      can and move on to another car.
      Hope I made sense, just thinking about it drives me wild.
