Dear Car Psychic: I need tips on finding and keeping a good trustworthy mechanic.

Car Psychic: Recommendations from friends, family and neighbors are a good start. Reviews online are another great way to find a place to take your car. But when you do find a good mechanic be sure to give him cookies and beer to keep him in your good graces.
