    Default Any mechanics that can fix my car?

    Hi - hope it's OK to post here.

    I am fed up with getting shafted by garages when I need work (just had a bill for £1200). I would rather give my money to someone I could trust from the forums rather than someone that doesn't give a damn.

    I have several things need doing and am willing to pay fairly. Midlands area but can travel. Anyone that does work on vectras?

    bad news, I have a local trusted mechanic who I know only does what needs doing or what I specifically ask for, good rates etc. Hope you find one, do any of your friends / family or colleagues know any local to you. word of mouth is best method to find a trustworthy one.

    Always the possibility the £1200 bill might have been genuine work needed.
