When it comes to taking care of your Ford, you don’t want to wait until something has gone wrong to find the right auto technician. Not all auto technicians hold experience working with Ford’s and when you are without a car, you are more likely to make a rush decision in an attempt to get your vehicle back as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, this can result in the repair shop taking even longer to repair your Ford and costing you more money than it should. To prevent this from occurring, it’s best to find a shop you like ahead of time so when a major repair is necessary, you know who to turn to. Talk to Those You Trust Have any friends or family members with Fords? It’s best to speak with them to receive a recommendation on who they trust with Ford repairs. General reviews are great to go off of, but you will want some feedback specific to your car brand. Speaking to someone you trust will also ensure you are receiving a genuine referral and not just someone trying to promote a friend or colleague. Test Out Their Skills If you have an upcoming oil change or maintenance check, it’s the perfect time to see how well a potential shop works with your Ford. In addition to seeing the costs and time associated with simple repairs, you’ll also gain some insight on the level of customer respect a shop offers. Be sure to pay attention to little details, such as how much information they offer about your vehicle, what’s about to happen, and what they recommend should happen in the future. If an auto-technician seems to brush you off or doesn’t offer you the respect you deserve, you’ll know they aren’t the right shop for you. Run a Phone Interview Don’t be afraid to speak with an auto technician over the phone to have your questions answered. Be sure to ask about a shops’ prior experience with Ford, any special qualifications the auto technicians may hold, or any awards or recognitions the shop may have received. Usually, a simple phone call is enough to determine mannerisms and dedication to customer service. If you call during a busy time, call back a little earlier to get a better idea of the services offered.
