How we chose the best
ConsumerAffairs thoroughly researched consumer reviews and company information.
Many Tulsa auto repair shops are in midtown, especially around Memorial Drive, but there are reputable shops spread out all around the city.
Your search for a mechanic in Tulsa hinges on what your vehicle needs. Routine maintenance, collision repair and transmission work are the domain of specialty shops. However, if you don’t know what service your vehicle needs, search for a mechanic shop in Tulsa you trust that has a wide range of experience.
Before having your car repaired, ask a technician to look it over and provide a written estimate, but be sure to check if there is a diagnostic charge should you eventually choose a different repair shop. An estimate should include:
To ensure you’re getting a fair price, visit a handful of auto repair shops in Tulsa to obtain several estimates. If the total is still too high for your budget, you can sometimes stagger the services over the period of a few months, finance the work or purchase parts directly from an online retailer, which can significantly lower costs.
How to find a reliable auto repair shop in Tulsa
Before you’ve selected an auto repair shop in Tulsa, take a few moments to chat with the mechanic. Plan to ask:
Have you worked on the same make and model as my car? Imported and exotic cars can require services unfamiliar to some mechanics.
How long will it take? This answer will vary and depends on what work your vehicle needs.
Is your shop a part of any automotive associations? The Automotive Service Association requires its members to adhere to industry regulations, and AAA requires their approved auto repair shops to guarantee all repairs for a minimum of 24 months or 24,000 miles.
Can I choose which parts you use? You can often save money by purchasing parts separately from an online retailer.
If I use your parts, will they be aftermarket or original equipment manufacturer parts? OEM parts come from the manufacturer and are more expensive than aftermarket parts, but always include a warranty.
Does your insurance policy cover my vehicle? Make sure your car is covered against fire or theft while at the shop.
