Questions to Ask When Taking your Audi in for Repairs in Cape Town:

By asking the right questions, you can avoid any miscommunication, as well as the possibility of overpaying for parts or unnecessary Audi repairs. People usually have a hard time trusting mechanics, because they are unsure on what their jobs entail. Therefore, asking questions will not only assist you in having a deeper understanding of what your car needs, but also lead to you building a relationship with your mechanic and thus not overpaying for repairs. These questions include:

1. Can I meet the mechanic?

As mentioned above, you should work on building a relationship with the person responsible for your Audi repairs. This way, you can also ask the mechanic questions in person, instead of over the phone.

2. Can you show and explain the problem to me?

After meeting the mechanic, ask them this question. If you don’t understand what the problem is or why it happened, ask your mechanic to break it down into simpler terms, as well as show you where the problem is when you bring your Audi in for repairs.

3. Would it be possible to prioritise the repairs?

If your Audi requires a number of repairs, but you aren’t able to afford everything at once, ask your mechanic if he (or she) would be able to prioritise what needs to be done as soon as possible and what can wait.

4. What will happen to my Audi if I avoid the repairs?

This is an especially important question if you have very little knowledge of car maintenance. Before ignoring Audi repairs, ask your mechanic what affect it will have on your car. That way, you can familiarise yourself with any potential consequences and either decide to have the repair done, or risk it and not have any repairs done.

5. Does this part have a warranty?

Always remember that there is nothing better than genuine parts. If you need a replacement of a part in your Audi, ensure that your mechanic is making use of top-quality, genuine parts that come with a warranty. Rather be safe than sorry; you never know when a part might end up being faulty which could result in engine damage. At least with a genuine Audi part the warranty protects you, because if something does go wrong the subsequent repairs are covered.

6. Are there discounts on any parts?

While some may frown on this question, it doesn’t hurt to ask. Who knows? Maybe you’ll get lucky!

Use these questions as a guideline when taking your Audi in for repairs and feel free to add on your own! If you are worried about certain parts of your car, but they aren’t covered in your service package, voice them to your mechanic! For all you know it could be something minor.
