This review is for people who think they would learn a lot about auto mechanic work from this game.
It's a game so you really can't mimic everything. This game shows you the basics of things like names of parts and the general places where parts go but thats about it. I've only play this game for 30 minutes and already its less of a simulator and more of a game like Cookie clicker. Just there to waste your time doing nothing.
These are the things that they just breeze by.
  • No one hand wrenches tire bolts lel. Atleast make the sound an air tool instead of a ratcheted tool noise.
  • They obviously just put in random prices with some of the jobs because an OBD test does not cost $300 ♥♥♥♥ing dollars if you spend $300 on a scan for your car you might aswell buy a scanner and do it yourself.
  • You shouldn't have to individually buy things. Brake pads come in a set of 4(2 for each side)
  • The second car you work on in campaign makes you change an oil filter, air filter, and a gas filter. Paper filters are not the only oil filter, there are can filters too. You also don't change only your oil filter unless its a defective part thats leaking oil. Other then that you get it with an oil change which is also the most basic thing you learn as a mechanic. You also rarely ever change a gas filter. (I've only done them twice in the past two years and both on Mercedes that have a common problem with them)
Refrences: I'm an auto mechanic.

I was hoping to learn more about repairing cars, but apparently you need to already know about how to repair real cars before you can spend your free-time pretending to work on virtual cars. Wish there was video tutorials, or guides, or tool tips or SOMETHING to help me learn all this mumbo jumbo. If I opened up my own 94 Ford Explorer, I wouldn't be able to tell you what an air filter is or where a fuel injector goes.

One of the best games I have ever played, definitely recommend it for 60 cents and full price. It's so relaxing and just fun how you progress in the game.

The game's pretty fun but it got very repetitive nearing the end of the career and the DLC was so boring that I couldn't even finish it. Just get the 2015 version because it offers much more content.

I put this on my resume and they hired me! I'm fully confident that I can fix any car now thanks to this. I might even open up my own shop, it's such easy money.

I bought this for 69 cents and it came with a free beautiful advertisement for "Car Mechanic 2015" right on the title screen.

PROS:
Me after using this.
CONS:
Mechanics that never played this before.

Fairly decent simulator game where you role play a mechanic fixing issues with cars. Clients come in with requests ranging from checking tire pressure to full on engine block replacements or undercarriage repairs. It kinda works as a puzzle game, in that you need to know what is required to be done and what parts need removing to get to the parts needing a fix. Knowing this saves you time labouriously taking every removable piece of the car out.

Outside of the garage, you may be asked to test out how a car handles after you've done repairs. You get to drive the car in either third person or in-car view around a short test track. Controls are very basic but functional at least in getting the job done.

It really is nothing that special, but there isn't inherently wrong with it. It looks semi-decent, gameplay is relatively relaxing, there isn't any time limit pressure on completing objectives. I recommend doing it while listening to music or the radio. It's really one of those games that passes the time, nothing more.

Overall, it's just another basic simulator game, so easy to make as all you need to do is think of a mundane job/task and build a game around that. A load of them are an absolute joke (with Goat Simulator being the ultimate simulator joke - I think that was made to purely mock the banality of the genre). It's relatively fine gameplay-wise and at the end of the day, that's really all that matters. It also has a slight puzzle element to it as to try to locate the problem with a client's car and fix it. So I'd tentatively recommend it, even though the oversaturation of these mundane simulators is getting pretty ridiculous on Steam these days.

Before you ask, no, you won't learn how to replace your busted clutch or how to find that squeaky sound underneath your car- it's not that type of game. What you will find, however, is a great puzzle game that is a breath of fresh air compared to the thousands of other puzzle games out there.

The premise is simple: you own a mechanic shop, and people bring you cars (problems) to fix. You get a short blurb to tell you a bit of information, but the amount of information that you get can vary- going from "Hey, my battery is dead, can you fix it?" to "Something squeaks under the car. Fix it." Your goal is to find and fix the problem while trying not to run out of cash- you get an extra amount of cash for each order, and if that runs out, you can ask the bank for a loan that you have to pay back. To be honest, though, if you're careful about what you buy and aren't replacing stuff willy-nilly, you ought to be fine. Just remember- fix it if you can, or replace it outright if you need to.

And don't worry about losing parts- the game will not only make you remove items in order off the car, but it will also force you to put them back in order, as well- there's no need to worry about missing any parts- unless it's something like a starter or a plastic engine cover, but even then it won't let you mark it as done until the car is completely put back together.

Once each objective is met, you'll be able to mark the car as "fixed" and send it on its way.

There are over seventy problems in the base game alone- plus another twenty in the DLC pack that comes free with the game. There's another free DLC pack launching later this month with another pack of problems, and that will add even more value to it.

The problems I have with this game are actually somewhat slight- for one, some of the detection on th orders can be really, REALLY picky. If it tells you to replace the right front tire, then your new wheel must go on the right front- you can't just move a used wheel from the other side of the car onto there, because it's not explicitly a new wheel. It's smart to take big orders a step at a time for this reason- work on one region of the car at a time, and replace everything needed- or make notes as to what the busted parts were. There is nothing more swear-worthy in this game than completing a huge order, but being unable to continue because you didn't put some tiny part back in its right space- and then you have to pull the whole blasted thing apart to hunt for it.

The only other complaint I have is that you will want to hit the radio with a wrench and kill it dead after a half-hour of its awful music. If you need music, bust out an iPod or turn on an actual radio, because this one will make you want to take it out to the test track and drive over it a few dozen times. Would it have been too much to ask to get a simple MP3 player in there or something?

All in all, though, if you're looking for a puzzle game that isn't something about jewels, you'll enjoy this- especially if you have an interest in cars.

Several notable annoyances, but this is an enjoyable "lite" simulator of working on cars!

I say lite because it is not a true simulation by any means. It's a moderate approximation of working on modern day cars, but plays more like a puzzle game. That said, what it does offer is quite enjoyable if you like cars or just problem-solving in general. You're given a car and a description of the problem, sometimes specific and sometimes vague, and it's up to you to figure it out.

Often this will involve poking around with a magnifying glass to see if something is glowing red, other times it will mean taking a test drive and seeing what rattles. Come back, take it apart, buy a part online or repair it, replace the part, there you go. Sometimes it'll be as straightforward as changing the oil or brake pads, other times it'll involve tearing down a significant portion of the drivetrain to get to a hard-to-reach part. It's not too complex either, with just the right amount of detail to be believable, but not *every* nut, bolt, and wire from a real car is accounted for. I find it very satisfying to be presented with a car that doesn't work for who knows what reason, poke around and inspect all sorts of parts, go shopping for new ones online, install them, find you need more parts, finish it off and finally take it for that successful test drive around the track. It also looks and sounds fantastic while you're doing it, which is not a requirement in this genre but it's a nice plus if you have the hardware.

My biggest issues: sometimes it's far too vague and makes a lot of assumptions about what you know. If you don't have a basic knowledge of car parts and their locations, too bad, you're going to be stumbling around a lot since it doesn't tell you where most things are or how many of them to look for. It's also not initially very clear *how* exactly to get to the parts you need to repair, even if you can see them, which is made worse by the camera being finicky. Also, some jobs are insanely picky, like one where you have to replace an ignition wire with a new one: the game gives you the option to replace the wire with used ones, but nope, it has to be new (or over some ambiguous percentage of quality) even though it doesn't tell you this. It is also incredibly easy to screw yourself out of money, since there is a way to upgrade your abilities in the game. If you spend too much on these upgrades before finishing a job, you may not have the cash needed to buy the parts to finish it, leaving you stuck.

I'd still recommend it for sim enthusiasts and the car-curious though, as the price seems *just fair enough* for the amount of enjoyment I've gotten out of it! However, it's lacking in some areas as far as accessibility, clarity, and variety in things to do. It's not as in-depth as some previous games like Gearhead Garage, but it's not nearly as simple as some of the flash games I've played either.

This game inspired me to repair my car. After a day of hard works, I realized that, unlike the game, 1. no one will pay me to repair my own car. 2. My car wasn't even broken in the first place.
