The basic assumptions governing the gameplay are the same as in the previous parts. In Car Mechanic Simulator 2021, we play the role of a mechanic and our task is to repair broken cars (over 70 different machines can be found in the game). This means the need to check and replace various, faithfully reproduced parts - we act gradually, disassembling subsequent elements of the vehicle and trying to identify the problem. If we do well, we gain a reputation, thanks to which we attract more clients and orders.
We can also buy new or used cars in Car Mechanic Simulator 2021, and then repair or improve them and sell them, thus gaining money for development. As the game progresses, our workshop gradually expands - we gain access to new possibilities and tools that make subsequent repairs easier (or even make them possible). We also increase the skills of our mechanic.
If we feel like it, in Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 we can also race our car on the track. It is worth noting that the discussed installment of the Car Mechanic Simulator series includes several new mechanics, such as a vehicle dirt system combined with a car wash, another type of damage (dents), the ability to park your cars in garages, and an improved parts analysis system.
The core of the gameplay compared to previous editions of Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 has not changed. The production of Red Dot Games allows us to step into the shoes of the owner of a car repair shop. The scheme is similar to many other titles of this type: we start small, then gradually, as we progress, we expand our business. Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 focuses on realism, and we can find over seventy cars and four thousand parts in it.
While playing Car Mechanic Simulator 2021, we can engage in various activities: repair, service, test, paint, tune and renovate. We do not have to limit ourselves to orders (randomly generated), we can also take the initiative ourselves, e.g. look for used cars in sheds that can be renovated and sold at a profit. Over time, if we manage, we gain not only money, but also reputation, which, along with stuffed pockets, allows us to operate with greater momentum and in new fields.
Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 offers a story campaign, which we push forward by completing tasks with various guidelines. There are also side/optional activities. One of them is the ability to test your vehicles on a track where time is measured. Generally, as the creators themselves say, their game can be played endlessly.

If you have a problem with finding a damaged part in the car, information about the order comes to the rescue. The information contained therein will help you in your search for repair parts.
What's more, you can mark a given element or elements on the list of order objectives (car condition / part to be repaired) to highlight the part in the vehicle in blue, which will greatly facilitate your work.
As you level up as a mechanic, you will gain access to new skills that will significantly shorten your work. What's more, you will also be able to repair some parts instead of buying new ones, which of course will translate into a higher income from a given repair.
The most benefits in the form of reward (CR) and experience points (XP) are brought by story missions. If you want to level up and earn game currency as quickly as possible, focus on this type of tasks.
If you're not interested in slow character and workshop development and would like to have access to all equipment, tools and skills at once, try sandbox mode, where your workplace is equipped with all equipment, objects and locations.
