Gotcha Garage

Welcome to Gotcha Garage, the DIY auto repair blog.

At Gotcha Garage, we understand how important your transportation is and how sometimes you don’t have the cash to take your car to an expensive garage for repairs, especially if you are a new driver.


We’ve all been there before…

You just turned 16 and want to buy your first car. But you’re not sure what or how to check so that you don’t end up with an oil burning, money eating, lemon! If this is you, let me recommend this guide for you to read: 31 Point Used Car Checklist To Help Avoid Buying A Lemon.

Or you’re going out of town on vacation so you take your car to the shop for a quick checkup.  But little did you know you would end up paying more for car repairs than if you took a round trip flight!

New shocks, struts and brakes, $2500 – will that be debt or charge?

It’s not easy to search for and find a good Phoenix auto repair shop near me!


Not everything has to be done by a certified mechanic. You can do some fixes yourself and save the heavy lifting for the auto shop.

At Gotcha Garage, we have you covered with simple How-To guides for checking the basics.

  • Tire Pressure
