· Undercover Mechanic: ABC is on the lookout for what you should know when you go into an auto repair shop. We take a real mechanic and send her undercover with Correspondent Elisabeth Leamy to repair shops for some simple fixes. Our undercover mechanic plays like she doesn't know, but she's an expert when it comes to cars. We also send in two men to the same shops with the same cars� two cars to the same five shops, all rigged with undercover cameras. Our expert bites her tongue while she is in the shops. But you won't want to miss what she says once she's out, and what our cameras catch. Will the shops we visit give our teams a fair shake or will they take them for a ride?
