Pay scale of an auto mechanic varies greatly. Depending on region, car line, exsperience and credentials. Most mechanics are paid either hourly or "flat rate". Flat rate pay can vary greatly. Starting out, one can expect to make 8-12 dollars an hour. Those with some certifications and a few years experience can expect to be in the 14-18 dollars an hour. Salary generally tops out at 30+ dollars an hour for those with the most experience.
