Car Mechanic Simulator 2014 is a simulation game developed by Red Dot Games. It is the first installment in the Car Mechanic Simulator series.
The game is played from a first-person perspective. The players walk around freely in their shop. There are no levels present in the game. Instead, the player takes jobs from the customers. Each customer has a unique vehicle and a unique car problem which the players have to find and fix.
When the client arrives with their car, the player takes the car apart, troubleshoots the issue, and replaces the required vehicle parts. Upon reassembly, the car can be taken for a test drive before handing it over to the client.
It is also possible to play in endless mode, where there is no limit whatsoever to the number of jobs the player takes.
Two expansion packs for the game were released.
The 4x4 Expansion Pack adds 20 new jobs for the repair of 4x4 off-roading vehicles. It presents new challenges to the players, as off-road cars are much different from the regular ones present in the game. It is a separate body frame that is bolted on to the live axles. The pack was offered free of charge for the players that bought the game on steam.
The 1/4 Mile Expansion Pack just added a single new test track, where the players could check the performance of their tuned out cars. It is basically a drag strip.
