Mensagem:  Still, does a mechanic perform the same work as does an auto repair technician?

IMO, the stand-alone word "mechanic" could well keep one guessing as to what kind of job does the mechanic perform, industrial mechanics, millwright mechanics, industrial or auto maintenance mechanics, whereas you'd promptly and correctly guess what an "auto repair technician" does as soon as you saw his or her job title.
