    These were pretty basic tips. I am not sure how they help you when you bring your cart to a mechanic.

    Here is my tips, listen to Car Talk, they have a podcast or you can just listen to them on NPR every Saturday. It's a ton of car jokes and some good advice here and there. These guys also have a database of "trusted" mechanics. I never tried the search but I will one day (when my car needs work)

    We are the original owner of our car and have a Haynes car manual so we look up everything when the mechanic says we need this & that. Still going strong for 16 yrs old too!
