No, I do not mean the local establishment down the road that serves adult beverages. I mean the Bureau of Automotive Repair. The BAR regulates automotive repair facilities, including mechanics and body shops.
Here is an example of the good information you can find at the BAR: A Consumers Guide to Automotive Repair. This PDF pamphlet tells you how to find a good repair facility, how to file a complaint, and getting authorization for repairs.
This is definitely a site worth checking out and keeping in your favorite places!
