There are many prejudices when it comes to car mechanics and while there may be some truth to them, we guess that these people are nothing but worthy of respect. You wouldn’t believe with the things they are forced to put up with and this is why we created this list. It will reveal numerous moments that car mechanics shared. All of them are weird or even hard to believe.
1. The pups
One car mechanic needed to check something on a vehicle but they were surprised by this! A couple of cute puppies were playing inside the vehicles.
2. The raccoon
One customer came to have their truck repaired and the mechanic was baffled to see the person had a raccoon. Both of them waited at the shop for the truck to be ready.
3. The description
Here is one unlikely description of a car fault. We are not entirely sure how Dory sounds and we just might see Finding Nemo again.
4. The sign
There are more ways than one to warn someone about whatever comes to mind. This van driver obviously has a sense of humor and their mechanic loved it.
5. The mileage
One mechanic maintained this car since its mileage was about the 200,000-mile mark. He was happy to see the customer return exactly before the odometer reached a million miles.
6. The fender
People strive to find a four-leaf clover and they search fields and woods but one mechanic was lucky to find it in a fender liner. What are the odds of that happening at all?
7. The noise
A lady came to this mechanic’s shop and complained about a weird flapping noise coming from the left side. Well, no wonder – you can see the source of the sound.
8. The warning
There are many things mechanics see and this is one of the weirdest ones. Someone did their best to prevent the described fault from happening.
9. The self-irony
We love it when people have self-irony and the owner of this Prius is definitely such a person. It seems that their mechanic liked it, too.
10. The dog
Here is yet another case when the client neglected an important fact: their dog was still in the car when they left it in the shop. The mechanic was scared at first.
11. The companion
It seems some mechanics are lucky enough to find the coolest things possible. This person shared the image of a bunny that just entered their shop and hopped around.
12. The baby turtle
This is one really lucky turtle. The mechanic found it when one of the lifts in their shop broke. The tiny baby was rescued and the mechanic was probably relieved.
13. The armored car
Some people need armored cars and there are more than a few reasons for that. As you can see, this Chevy Tahoe has solid glass all-round. That thing is one inch thick!
14. The tire
We have seen our fair share of tires that need replacing but this is absurd. It seems that this person risked a lot when driving to the shop with that tire.
15. The bill
People need to pay all their bills on time and one girl paid around $1,000 for car repairs with $1 and $5 bills. Here is how that looks like.
16. The gloves
There are thousands of items people put inside glove compartments but we have never actually seen gloves inside it. One mechanic did and even took a picture.
17. The achievement
Here is one thing that the owner was proud of and so were the people at the dealership. This Honda Civic was bought new and the original owner put a million miles on it.
18. The wheel
There is a reason why this wheel looks like this. The owner of the car had a flat tire but just kept on driving until he reached the shop. That is really wacky thing to do!
19. The lift kit
The manufacturer of this lift kit knew that most mechanics would toss away the instructions so they came up with this brilliant idea. We like it a lot.
20. The nest
Of all the weird things when a mechanics pops the hood of a car, this must be the weirdest one ever. We wonder if the mother bird was looking for her nest after the car was moved.
21. The license plate sticker
Here is one situation that baffled this mechanic and he took a picture. An old lady asked him to put her plate sticker and he encountered this when he kneeled down.
22. The kitten
This is one really lucky kitten. The person who took the picture is a mechanic and he found the kitten tucked in behind the bumper.
23. The key
This screwdriver was tagged with a number for a reason. It was the key one customer left. Apparently, he used it for quite some time after his original key broke.
24. The Lexus
This spares shop had an unexpected client. They drove right through the whole shop, causing substantial damage. Maybe the car needs new brakes.
25. The codes
A client left their car for fault check. When the mechanic attempted to go inside and check the codes, he saw this cute little girl just waiting for their owner to pick up the car.
26. The battery
It seems that Ferraris are many people’s dream cars but this mechanic is on a different opinion. He just saw where this model’s battery is and he didn’t like it.
27. The alloy wheel
This person was thinking about something we never want to understand. How could you drive like that for three days? The mechanic even found the spare tire sitting in the trunk.
28. The BBQ
People come up with all kinds of ideas and this is one of the most curious ones! The mechanic thought that they were joking when they said they’ll bring a barbeque for repairs.
29. The interior
Imagine this mechanic’s surprise when they sat inside the car that was left for repairs by a lady. This is the kind of interior we could stare at all day without understanding the idea.
30. The punctured tire
Here is something we have never seen before and we wish we never have to experience it personally. The client thought they had a punctured tire but it looks much worse.
31. The weird noise
A client drove to this shop and complained of loud noise. The mechanic put the car on the lift only to discover that the client’s catalytic converter had been stolen overnight!
32. The tires
This mechanic was shocked by the condition of a woman’s tires. It gets worse, as she refused replacement and the mechanic got her to sign an agreement before he released the car out of the shop.
33. The littered car
We have seen dirty interiors before but this is something else! As you can see, the whole space inside the car is completely trashed!
