Ask the mechanic about their working hours, if there is a warranty, and ask about an estimation of the cost and the time it will take to repair the vehicle.

Be sure to ask other mechanics the same questions so you can get an idea of what mechanic you prefer. If you’re getting brakes fixed and the mechanic states it will take all day and cost $500, you need to shop around.
