RepairPal provides reliable information for auto repair

Ever since I discovered RepairPal I’ve enjoyed using their site. It’s unique platform enables you to look up car repair information quickly and easily. Not only can you find a repair shop that is local to your area but you will get a car repair estimate. This can really come in handy when you start compiling quotes.

This system will automatically adjust to cover for geographic price fluctuations.From Los Angeles car repair to Raleigh, North Carolina, RepairPal has you covered with accurate information.

RepairPal has information on every car that’s on the market. Whether you drive a P.T. Cruiser, Jeep or Ford Explorer or an exotic import you can find the brand that you need.

All you need to do is visit the website and follow the prompts. Click on the type of car that you have and the problem that you are having. Brakes, alternators, timing belts and head gasket repair and more are all included.
When the estimate is produced it can be a little off-putting to see the wide spread between low and high potential price. This allows for the price range difference in backyard shops versus expensive dealerships.

A good rule of thumb that I have found is to expect a backyard mechanic to be at the lower end of the spectrum.

When calling for repair estimates on my car the dealer seemed to be at the higher end and the big box repair shop on the highway was in the middle of the price range. I’ve had to price three different repairs and have had the same results each time. It’s been helpful to have a cost idea before walking into the repair shop.

Many thanks to RepairPal for sponsoring this blog.
