Car repairs can always be dreadful, but maybe not if you know the right mechanic.
Many of us waiting until the muffler falls off, the engine’s billowing smoke or your tires come to a squealing halt before it becomes clear that a mechanic is needed.
But who do you call?
With mom-and-pop shops, word of mouth can go a long way. That’s why we are asking you our Patch friends and family do you have a favorite auto mechanic in your town?
Local shops are a great find. While they may not tout the speed of their competition, their work is skillfully done and at times, cheaper than the competition..
Nominate your favorite shop to be part of our “Best Mechanic,” as Patch unveils its Readers' Choice.
Just log in and post your vote in the comments section below. You may nominate multiple places, but please post each nomination in a separate comment so we can make sure they are all counted. Your nominee must be in Easley, Mauldin or Taylors to be eligible.
Nominations are due by July 9.
Voting for Readers’ Choice 2012 will begin in late July and winners will be announced in August.
