Technology is changing how we buy cars. It’s also changing how we take care of them. State Farm is teaming up with Openbay’s online marketplace for auto repair. Here’s how it works: you go online and choose what needs to be done to your vehicle. Repair shops on the Openbay Network take a look and send you quotes. You choose the one you like and book an appointment on Openbay. The service is available to anyone, not just State Farm customers. Here’s the website: Openbay.com/statefarm
