How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

When your car breaks down or acts up, it’s a major inconvenience—and can be a major expense. That’s why finding a good mechanic or repair shop is so important. Our evaluations of hundreds of area shops will help you find great service and low prices.

Our price ratings of shops will help you find shops that charge fair prices. Don’t assume using a low-cost shop means having to accept low-quality work: We found that top shops are more likely to offer low prices as lousy shops.

If your car is still covered under a new-car warranty, you’ll want to use a dealership for repairs. But if your car is no longer under warranty, you’re probably best off using an independent shop.

While even the best body shops can't undo an accident, our ratings reveal that many shops will get your car back on the road without a hitch. But our ratings also reveal that some shops may compound your misery with lousy work.

Since insurance companies pay for most repairs, for most auto body repair customers price is less important than quality. But for work paid for by the customer, price is an important consideration.

Choosing a good shop is an important step toward obtaining quality service, but certainly not the only one. How you deal with your shop and, when you’re involved in accidents, with your insurer, are equally important.
