Free Auto Repair Guide

Author and mechanic Mark Gittelman

This free auto repair guide was a report I put together about two years ago. I use to sell it on my original website certifiedmastertech.com. I stopped selling the book because I was bombarded with spam and flaming e-mails from upset retail service and repair shops.

The guide to the auto repair business report was intended for the automotive consumer. I did sell a bunch of copies and had very happy customers. But many auto shops located the website and were very angry about the subject material.

This was despite many statements in bold that the book was created to help car repair consumers find good honest mechanics and shops. I would think an honest garage would love this free auto repair guide because it also discusses how to forge a long lasting relationship with the good car shops out there.

But unfortunately more then a few car mechanics and many retail automotive service owners found the topic uncomfortable and they let me know about it often! The Internet can be a very rough place.

I decided to pull down my contact form and change my e-mail address. Without any website support I could no longer charge for the eBook. So I decided to just give it away to hopefully benefit of the automobile service consumers.

Contents of the Report

The book was designed to give you an insider's look at how the auto repair business works. As a professional mechanic for 24 years I have seen many good and bad things in this business. This is a chance for me to share some true stories about the dark side of the auto repair business.

The 67-page guide to the auto repair business will point out common auto service scams and provide tips on how to avoid them. Keep in mind that I am a car mechanic and not a writer. You may find a few grammar and spelling errors.

I do not plan on editing the guide and the material is copyrighted so please do not send me a list of corrections. The reason that I am giving this report away is that I hope that you will find some value in it. And there is no question that the book supports the reasons for do-it-yourself auto repair (the focus of the YouFixCars.com website).

If you never take your vehicle into a shop and perform all of the auto repairs yourself you will not fall pray to automotive service scams. I also hope that this will be an opportunity for you to get to know me better. I would like you to tell your friends and family about the YouFixCars.com website. I hope to be your primary destination for car repair information.
