6. I can fix it myself if only I have the right tools.

This is another insensitive remark as it implies that you are hiring his services not for his expertise but because of his tools. If that is the case, then you might just as well buy the tools and do the work yourself.


7. I cannot leave my car now but if you can tell me what the problem is, I will bring it back for repair tomorrow.


Your mechanic will never fall for such crap and it will be better to be honest and straightforward with him about your intentions in asking for his advice with regards to the repair work that your car requires.


8. I would like to fix it myself but I just don’t have the time.


Stop using this line and making lame excuses when discussing things with your mechanic. You should be ashamed of yourself when you admit that you are not able to take care of your car.


9. Change the oil? Do I really need to do that?


Don’t ever use this line as you are making a fool out of yourself. You appear to be such a dumb person every time you make statements that are similar to this one.


10. My car is making some funny noise but now it is gone. What do you think is the problem?

As a responsible car owner, it is your responsibility to provide accurate and complete information to your mechanic. Giving vague and incomplete information would only result to a more expensive work as he will have no choice but to check every nook and cranny of your car just to determine the exact problem.
