Unless you already have a reliable mechanic, finding a place to get your car repaired can be a nerve-wracking experience. It's often expensive, and you're almost always left wondering if you got the best deal (or if the repair was even necessary).
Word of mouth is one way to find someone trustworthy, and that's why this week's "Best Of" poll wants you to voice your opinion on the best car repair shop in town.
Ken's Auto Body, Pat's Auto Repair, Stateline Garage, Smith's Auto Repair, Aguiar's Auto Repair, Shove Street Auto Body, Andrew's Auto Body, Rob's Auto Care, Waite's Garage, Correia's Performance, Thrifty Oil, R&A Auto Body, Ray Helger's Antique Autos, Compton Auto Service, Country Auto Sales & Service, Art's Auto Repair, Jack's Auto Body, Tiverton Auto Parts, Standard Auto Body and Collision Center, Uncle Henry's Motor Mart
We want to hear your thoughts on which local spot is the best place to get your wheels back on the road.
Vote in our poll below, then share your thoughts in the comments section. If we left your favorite mechanic off the list, note that in the comments as well.
We'll leave the poll up all week then close voting at 9 a.m. Friday. At noon that day, we'll share your top local pick. Then be sure to watch the site over the weekend when we tally up the top votes and announce the shop that got the most rave reviews across all of our Rhode Island sites.
Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.
