Brake Kingdom of Hallandale Beach and Hollywood Florida is providing this Auto Repair Consumer Protection Guide out of respect for the retail auto repair customer.

Americans are rightly suspicious of their car repair bills. Two thirds of consumers in a AAA survey say they don't trust repair shops because they had been overcharged, or offered unnecessary repairs.

76% say they were sold service they didn't need; 73% said they were overcharged; 63% said they'd had negative past experiences.

How to get a proper auto repair at a fair price?

Conduct reputation research to find a competent and honest auto repair shop; know what repairs should cost; be aware of common auto repair ripoffs

! - Reputation matters - Read reviews on Google, Yelp (and others) . They can usually be relied on. Most five star reviews are real. But be careful. Some dishonest merchants buy their reviews. You can tell honest reviews by how far back they go and how detailed. Real reviews are usually very specific; fakes contain superlatives and lack particulars.

2 - Know the basics of how a car works.  You don't have to make yourself a mechanic but read (or skim) your car manual.  Search YouTube.com for "how does a car work".

3 - Know what things usually cost. Refer to the Consumer Reports Car Repair Estimator location-based car repair estimates.  Link is below.

Common Auto Repair Ripoffs.

1. 'Gravy Work' - unneeded repairs for more time than a job takes.

2. 'Wallet Flush' - Inflated oil change add-ons when a routine oil change turns into unneeded services.

3. Billing for Work you don't heck - like replacing air filters.

4. "Check engine" light can mean minor things, from a loose gas cap to a seriously misfiring engine.  It's part of your car's onboard diagnostics system.

This you can check yourself with an app on your phone for less than the cost of one repair,  Search "auto diagnostic code reader" on Google or Amazon, or search Youtube.com for "Choosing an Automotive Scan Tool"
