I use a local mechanic to repair my Volvo 850 and he does a good job. He has college-level mechanic training and knows how to do basic electronic diagnosis and maintenance. Sometimes there are delays if a special tool involved. For example, in the last repair he tried to set a rear seal with a jerry rig, and when it leaked, he gave up on that idea, ordered the special tool from a dealer, and re-did the procedure. Doing complex electrical troubleshooting is difficult for him. Heavy mechanical stuff, like work on axles and suspensions is his forte. Latches, fasteners, handles and other small mechanisms he cannot do, unless it is a simple replacement.
Anyway, I am thinking of getting one of the newer Aston Martins and I am wondering whether a mechanic like this can maintain it efficiently. Is that futile, and I will need to be finding a $400/hr aircraft-style mechanic, or will the AM more or less be like the Volvo for him?
