My truck has been in the shop one time since I've owned it, and that was to have the TB cleaned when I bought it. Also had the computer scanned. But I was on that mechanic's heels the entire time.

I never ever let anyone else touch my truck without me being there. IN all actuality, I'll probably never let someone touch my truck again. The only reason I took it to the shop in the first place is because I had just bought it the week before and it still had the 30 day "warranty".

x2 i always like to be able to see what theyre doing. to me its always worth it to go somewhere that might be more expensive. went to a car-x for some exhaust work once, never going back ever.

X2. But i have the Haynes one.

My truck has been in the shop 3 times.

Once for tires,

Once for Spark plugs (because I was scared to work on it)

Once for AC recharge

Then I smashed it and they wanted 5K to fix it, and I found the wonders of the junkyard and working with my hands! And Advanced Auto.

Only reason I let someone else touch my truck is if I couldnt do it myself. Like oil changes since I lived in a dorm but now that I moved out.... All its done myself
