Make sure you get quality parts to fix your car. You can usually get better prices if you get used parts from a junk yard but there is no way of knowing how long these parts will last. Do not hesitate to spend more on brand new parts that come with a guarantee.
Always ask lots of questions at the shop where you are getting your car repaired. You should ask about the problems you have and what to do to avoid them in the future. Preventative measures will save you a whole lot of money in the long run.
