We invest a lot in our automobiles. We buy the best cars that we can afford, and we keep them maintained. We follow all the manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure we get the full value of our automobiles. However, they are machines, and they all have issues sooner or later.

When you are involved in an automobile accident, or your car suffers a breakdown, who do you turn to for repairs in Port St. Lucie? Do you head straight to the dealership? Do you go to a big-name shop in town? Or maybe you ask the guy next door to help you. There are times when each of those options is correct. But when? We asked professional mechanics what they recommend and even what they do. The answer is not surprising.

There are issues that are covered under warranty and issues that can void warranties. Those issues are to be addressed at the dealership. However, for normal repair or repairs needed after an accident, they are a costly option. The big-name shops are a great alternative when you need detailed diagnostic work or when there are sales that reflect their buying power. As for the guy next door, mechanics are the guy next door. The overwhelming response from qualified mechanics is to go to a local shop and build a relationship with your mechanics. They will give you the attention and time you need and they will stand behind their work. With that said, we will offer our top two recommendations.
