Trust which mechanic?

I took our car into a shop this morning. I did not tell him what the car parts guy told us: the alternator is your problem, lady. I just told the shop mechanic that the car had had to be charged before its engine would turn over. The shop mechanic came up with what he considered the answer: a bad battery. Not the larger and more expensive alternator. The battery is about a year and a half old. Newer in our minds. I decided to have the battery changed. Not cheap but not as expensive as having a new alternator. I pray this mechanic is correct. We live 10 to 12 miles from town. I must have a reliable car. Must. I sit here thinking about car parts- how many electrical components are in a car that could go bad?

Take the time to find a car guy (mechanic) that you trust instead of just going to see anyone. We've had the same guy for years, his business is always full of cars needing repair, a sure sign he does a good job and is fair.
