Having sunk a few hours into this I left feeling pretty dissapointed. It striked me as a solid concept and the sale price of $10 made me purchase outright without doing much resarch into the game. Something which I rarely ever do !! In hindsight I wish i'd watched a let's play or a WTF is.
It's essentially a very basic simulation, stripped down the the bare minimum of mechanical engineering. A true mechanic will see this game as laughable as it feels very much like a simulator for young teens. After a few hours gameplay things got rather tedious, clunky controls and repetitive gameplay left me with nothing more than a feeling of … meh. The game however is very asthetically pleasing, even on low settings it has a very nice look to it.
To conclude, if you're looking for a basic game to take up a couple of hours, why not go for it, but if you're looking for a fluent game to hold your interest each time you open up steam, I doubt Car Mechanic Simulator will be the one you choose.

Cool Game for learning about Cars!
by Gabriel388, Australia - May 13th 2014
I've worked on quite a few cars in the game and learned where all the different parts are in the cars. Pretty Cool game for learning about cars and what mechanics do in general. It's one of those games you play a bit here and there to learn about stuff you don't know. I've learnt where a fuel filter is in a car, oil filter, air filter, starter, where the gear mechanics of a car are, brake pads, battery, alternator. You also get to unscrew a lot of car parts to get to the parts you need to fix and replace. A lot of thinking and screwing and unscrewing lots of parts around. There is also a new free update out on Steam for the game which adds 20 odd missions. Great Game!!!!
