As a woman, I have always felt so intimidated by going to an auto repair shop, because of my fear of being "taken for a ride". Friends have told me that the only way to get past my fear is to drive around and get a few different estimates. Well, it worked, because not only was the estimate at DCP lower than the others I got in Yonkers, but also Damon at DCP was patient enough to carefully explain to me why I needed a new catalytic converter for my 1998 Ford. I noticed that he wasn't just spending time with me because of the female factor, because there were two other men hanging out in the careworn little office, waiting for their cars, and chatting happily away with Damon, too. It was a friendly place, and I felt safe about the estimate and the parts and repairs being fair and accurate. And I was right. Since I did not have all of the funds I needed for the catalytic converter at the time, and therefore could not pass inspection emissions check, Damon let me leave the car there until I had the funds, in order to avoid getting a ticket. I wonder why getting my old reliable car repaired is such an emotional stress-test for me. Same with buying or selling a car, and buying the right oil. All so invested with emotions. Is that part of being female? Or, is it the same for everyone who has no knowledge of cars? Well, now I am relieved to not have that problem any longer. I can just go to DCP and Damon.
