    It is understood that you leave the car and the key with the mechanic when you want repair done.

    not a teacher

    Re: key

    We use "the car key" not "the car's key".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: key

    No. 'Repaired' is the past tense or past participle. You need a noun.

    It's like saying 'I gave my teacher my homework for corrected' instead of '...for correction'.
