Website offers the skinny on auto repair

A relative recently gave my daughter her first vehicle. It's a few years old and has been sitting for a while. Of course, it needs repairs. My daughter's a novice when it comes to repair shops, so her dad and I are giving her tips on how to deal with auto repair shops.

Hubby and I will probably pitch in financially to help. Routine maintenance is important, we've told our daughter. Hopefully, we won't be emptying our bank accounts to get this car into shape.

If you live in the Dallas area, online assistance is available to help you identify shops that provide Dallas auto repair. offers a number of free resources. For instance, if you need a brake job, all you have to do is fill out an easy form to learn the estimated cost. In addition, you can quickly locate auto repair shops near you. also offers owner ratings and reviews on virtually any type of car or truck. One of my dreams is to buy a used truck as our second vehicle, so I’m definitely interested in this feature.

Say, for instance, you owned a Chevrolet Silverado. Enter the year of your vehicle on the online form, and discover lots of valuable information. Read other owners’ reviews and ratings. With a few mouse clicks, you can learn common problems associated with the vehicle. You can even check for automaker recalls.
