Driver's safety depends on the diagnosis and repairs made by auto mechanics. With more computerized automotive systems in today's increasingly complex cars, mechanics must have an understanding of both mechanical and electrical principles. Many automotive technicians now specialize in a particular area, such as air-conditioning, transmission, or brakes.

According to MoneyTalks News, the average pay for auto service technicians and mechanics is about $40,000 per year.
