RepairPal Provides Repair Estimates and Auto Advice For Free

Website of the Day: RepairPal

We've all been there. Your car starts making a funny sound so you take it into the repair shop where they charge you $1000 to fix a part that you've never even heard of. Thanks to a great new site called RepairPal, women (and men) can arm themselves with all the tools they need for getting their car fixed — like knowing what's wrong with it and how much parts should cost.

With RepairPal you just enter the make, model and year of your car, your zip code and the type of service your car requires and it will whip up repair estimates, plus provide descriptions about the service and list shops in your area where you can get your car fixed. Users can also leave their feedback about various mechanic shops so you know just what you're getting yourself into before you go — no more getting the wool pulled over your eyes! There's also a neat area on the site where you can keep all your repair records in one place, and it'll also send you service reminders for things like oil changes, and provide safety alerts, recall info and special discount offers.

And did I tell you? It's free, free, freeee! Oh, and don't worry, it isn't run by a slimy mechanic trying to push certain products or service shops on you. It's totally unbiased and just trying to help all of us novice car repair peeps out!
