America is a nation built around the automobile. The majority of Americans make regular use of automobiles, and in many areas they are an absolute necessity. As a result, every car owner knows how important it is to make sure your vehicle functions safely. When something breaks, we trust on repair workers to fix the damage and ensure our cars are safe to drive.
Impact of Faulty Repairs
Cars contain a number of components that are necessary for our safety. This includes the most obvious safety components, like brakes and seat belts, but there are many smaller parts that, if broken, can result in losing control of the vehicle. Power steering that suddenly fails can send you out of control. An overheating radiator can lead to fires and damage to your engine. If one of these parts breaks, but repair workers fail to properly fix the problem, their mistakes can put your life at risk.
In some cases, auto workers at disreputable garages pressure customers into unnecessary repairs. Sometimes these unnecessary repairs are not even to parts that are worn or damaged, but are instead just replacements of expensive but otherwise undamaged parts. If an auto worker is not highly skilled, this can sometimes put drivers at risk by replacing an otherwise functioning factory-installed part with one sloppily installed, simply to make money.
