I gotta say i read this at least twice daily, but i never post because i usually don't have anything to bring to the table. Anyway, my car needs to have the cv joint replaced, and even though some may say they do it themselves (
), I really feel this best left to a mechanic to take care of. So in thinking so, i was wondering which mechanic to take it to. I'm new to my area, and well, i don't know anyone. Then a bright idea hit me.
What if, we started one of those permanently posted strings where people can post their most trusted mechanics in their area, and maybe along with it, what work they did for them and a ballpark figure of the cost. Even if we had no cost posting, a string with the names of trusted local shops would help everyone a bunch. Anyone else think its a great idea?
Oh, and yeah, anyone know a mechanic in Orange County that is pretty reliable and won't charge an arm and a foot for work? I live in Irvine, and will go to Santa Ana, Costa Mesa, Newport and Tustin.
