Before you arrange to have any work performed,
ask how the South Dakota Ford auto repair station prices its work. Some repair shops charge a flat rate for labor
on auto repairs. The published rate is based on an independent or manufacturer's
estimate of the time required to complete the auto repairs. Others charge on the
basis of the actual time the South Dakota Ford mechanic worked on the repair.
If you need expensive or complicated auto repairs, or if you have questions
about recommended work, consider getting a second opinion from a different South Dakota Ford auto shop.
Find out if there will be a diagnostic charge if you decide to have the
work performed elsewhere. Many South Dakota Ford repair shops charge for diagnostic time.
Shops that do only diagnostic work and do not sell parts or repairs may
be able to give you an objective opinion about which repairs are necessary.
If you decide to get the work done, ask for a written estimate.
What should a written estimate include?
• It should identify the condition to be repaired, the parts needed,
and the anticipated labor charge. Make sure you get a signed copy from the South Dakota Ford auto mechanic.
• It should state that the shop will contact you for approval before they
do any work exceeding a specified amount of time or money. State law may
What should I know about the parts to be repaired or replaced?
Parts are classified as:
• New - These auto parts generally are made to original manufacturer's specifications,
either by the vehicle manufacturer or an independent company. Your state
may require South Dakota Ford auto repair shops to tell you if non-original equipment will be
used in the repair. Prices and quality of these parts vary.
• Remanufactured, rebuilt and reconditioned - These terms generally mean
the same thing: parts have been restored to a sound working condition.
Many manufacturers offer a warranty covering replacement parts, but not
the labor to install them.
• Salvage - These are used parts taken from another vehicle without alteration.
Salvage parts may be the only source for certain items, though their reliability
is seldom guaranteed.
What do I need after the work is done?
• Get a completed repair order describing the work done by the South Dakota Ford mechanic. It should list
each repair, parts supplied, the cost of each part, labor charges, and
the vehicle's odometer reading when you brought the vehicle in as well
as when the repair order was completed. Ask for all replaced parts. State
law may require this.
