Do you have any idea how easy it is for shady mechanics to rip you off? Too easy. And they know it. And they exploit it…they exploit YOU! But don’t feel bad. They exploit anyone who doesn’t know what’s going on – and that’s MOST EVERYONE!
So how do you protect your pocketbook…and your pride when taking your car into an autoshop? Well, you know the old saying – ‘KNOWLEDGE is power!’
Your first line of defense is knowing EXACTLY what your car needs BEFORE you take it into the shop. Which is easier than you might think – more on that in a minute.
Your second line of defense is knowing what opportunities shady mechanics are looking for when trying to rip you off. Unfortunately, there are many of them.
But here are the 3 BIGGEST opportunities crooked mechanics look for when they want to rip you off…
When that ‘Check Engine Light’ comes on, it means instant stress for you and ‘Cha-Ching’ for the mechanic.
The ‘Check Engine Light’ is often referred to as ‘The Idiot Light’ because mechanics know you have NO IDEA why it came on. So they can treat you like an idiot by telling you whatever they want! It’s the easiest way for them to jack up your bill with unnecessary repairs and labor.
Not every ‘tune up’ is the same – especially in the hands of a mechanic looking to put the squeeze on your wallet.
Check your car’s manual or simply Google it’s maintenance requirements. But go into the shop armed with the knowledge of knowing what needs to be done. Otherwise, a fairly quick 30-Point Inspection can turn into an overnight stay and suddenly you’re walking out the door with a massive bill for parts & labor that you didn’t actually need.
Here’s the thing, auto shops actually lose money on $19 oil changes.
Ever notice when you go in for a quick oil change, that before you can sit down the service guy’s rattling off a list of ‘Flushes’ you need done – coolant flush, transmission flush, brake fluid flush, power steering flush and on and on. It’s affectionately known as ‘The Wallet Flush’ in industry circles – and now you know why.
Have you looked under the hood recently. Today’s engines are ridiculously complicated!
Well, thanks to a powerful little device called FIXD, that insanely complicated car is now insanely easy for you to understand.
Simply stated, FIXD tells you precisely what’s going on with your car and what needs to be done. Things like …
✔️ Why exactly your ‘Check Engine Light’ is on.
✔️ How severe a particular problem is.
✔️ Consequences of ignoring a problem.
✔️ When your car is due for a maintenance check
✔️ When it’s time for your next Oil change
✔️ And more…
With FIXD, it really is like having your very own personal mechanic along for every ride. Best part is, this mechanic won’t lie! Shady mechanics don’t stand a chance!
FIXD keeps you informed by continuously monitoring your vehicle. So the second you turn your car on, FIXD instantly starts inspecting your car and immediately reports any detected issues. In fact…
FIXD alerts you to over 7,000 potential issues – in real time!
But it gets better! Here are just 3 of the many useful features you’ll find incredibly helpful…
Yep. Quite possibly the greatest invention since sliced bread. FIXD detects the exact problem(s) that triggered that one ridiculously generic light and translates it into easy to understand terms for you.
That generic ‘Check Engine Light’ can’t tell you how critical an issue is. It only knows ‘On’ and ‘Off’ – not very helpful. But FIXD actually tells you how severe the problem is and it even tells you what the consequences are if you ignore the problem.
As soon as you plug FIXD in, it syncs up with your car’s make, model and its current miles. Then based on the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance timeline, FIXD sends updates to your phone when it’s getting close to take your car in.
This is the best part. When you consider that FIXD can save you $1000’s in unnecessary repairs and replacements, FIXD should cost $200, $300 easy! But you can get FIXD for ONLY $59! One time payment – NO ongoing fees!
Think about it. Every time your check engine light turns on; you hear that weird little ‘clicking’ or ‘whirring’ sound; you need to go to the auto shop, instead of going in blind and ignorant, you’ll go in fully prepared!
Imagine the peace-of-mind, the confidence, and the sense of empowerment when you’re ready to face that mechanic. You can tell him what he needs to repair or replace rather then having him tell you! That kind of unwavering confidence is priceless!
Shady mechanics have met their match – but only if you have FIXD on your side!
