Your vehicle is a valuable asset. Transporting you and your family safely is a high-end priority. You need to know your automobile is up for the task every time it hits the road, no exceptions. You also need to know your mechanic not only treats your vehicle with the care and respect it deserves, but he or she is qualified for all required tasks. 

Finding a good mechanic is important, but finding a high quality certified mechanic is essential. The Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification is only awarded to a car mechanic who has successfully completed applicable training and met his or her Automotive Service Excellence Certified Master Technicians requirements.

Make Sure Your Mechanic Is Certified

An ASE-certified mechanic is capable of working on every part, system and component in a vehicle, with some brand-based proprietary limitations applied. ASE-certified mechanics have a minimum verified two years of automotive repair industry experience.

These mechanics are also capable of taking and passing bi-annual specialty examinations. A more experienced ASE Master Certified Mechanic is qualified to work on truck equipment, school/transit buses, engine mechanism and various levels of collision repair.  

The American Automobile Association (AAA) is a valuable asset to drivers around the nation. AAA has been in business since 1902. AAA services, resources and reputation are important to approximately sixty-one million members in North America. 

American drivers love the AAA-Approved Auto Repair Facility Locator tool on the company website. AAA-approved mechanics provide limited club discounts on some services.

More importantly, repairs completed by AAA-approved mechanics are guaranteed for twenty-four months or 24,000 miles, depending on whichever occurs first. 

Free maintenance inspection is included with any qualified paid service. AAA even steps in to help resolve disputes between you and your mechanic when applicable.
