I face the dilema of scrapping my car due the lack of "real" mechanics in Hong Kong.
Where I come from I can find mechanics for cars willing to get their hands into the problem to find the reason rather than connecting the car to the computer and replacing the whole system that the computer comes up with.
I wonder if anyone knows an honest mechanic that is whiling to work to really find the issues rather than get the easy "repair", which of course it's the most expensive.
Thanks for any tips.
PS. To give some contest, my car is a 2000 Mercedes, the computer diagnostic is that there is an issue in the transmission system. The mechanics I was talking to told me to change the whole gearbox, but talking to a mechanic friend in Europe told me that gearbox issue could be trigger by several other issues, like transmission oil levels, radiator issues, even the cooler of the transmission oil. Talked to 4 different mechanics and any of them want to do the real job, all want to change the gearbox at once...because the computer said so in the alert. This lack of "real" mechanic will force me to scrap the car, which disappoints me as this world needs more people to solve problems rather that easy/quick solutions.
