Q: Car guy, how do I find a cheap and reliable auto technician?

Michael says....
A hidden gold mine of info can be found on the websites of owners’ clubs for your vehicle. These sites always have message areas where questions can be post­ed, and invariably club members will jump to recommend a favourite (and of­ten reasonably priced) technician. Local CAA organizations also list approved shops in your area online. Or try what generations of drivers have done: word of mouth.
