About this title
Award Winning Book. This book is NOT a do-it-yourself car repair/maintenance book. This book is NOT a hundred pages of horror stories. Hit the Brakes on Car Repair Rip-Offs IS a down-to-earth, easy to read, COMPLETE guide on how to avoid being ripped-off by unscrupulous mechanics or repair shops. In the Tricks of the Trade (Scams) chapter there are 19 known scams containing an additional 14 intra-category tricks. The book contains a few short chapters on introduction items and enforcement and statistics but then delves into the heart of: how to MINIMIZE the likelihood of breakdowns, SYMPTOMS of potential problems and EMERGENCY driving responses, WHERE TO GO for what types of problems, SAFETY TIPS, LEMON laws and warranties, TRICKS OF THE TRADE, and a COMPREHENSIVE resource section - - including Quick Mechanic Locator. We have all been taken advantage of by a dishonest mechanic at one time or another. This is a great gift book for college kids.About the Author:
