Do you know what your car needs?

AskPatty is partnering with the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence to create a Customer Confidence Index, and we’d like your answers on a few simple questions.

* 1. Do you follow a regular maintenance schedule?

* 2. Do you have a regular mechanic?

* 3. On a scale of 1 – 10, how confident/comfortable are you in speaking with your mechanic about your car maintenance needs (with 10 being extremely confident and 1 being not confident at all)?

* 4. On a scale of 1 – 10, how confident are you that your mechanic treats you fairly (with 10 being extremely confident and 1 being not confident at all)?

* 5. On a scale of 1 – 10, how confident are you that your mechanic treats you the same as male customers? (with 10 being extremely confident and 1 being not confident at all)

* 6. When was the last time you visited a mechanic?
