Certifications Matter

Whether you drive a race car or the family wagon, your vehicle is a significant investment, and its reliability is essential. By choosing to use certified auto mechanics, you can rest assured knowing that your car is in good hands of mechanics that undergo continual training to stay up on the latest techniques and tools in the industry. 
ASE stands for Automotive Service Excellence. This certification means that the mechanic on staff has a minimum of 2-years experience before undergoing initial testing. There are tests that cover many topics such as engine repairs, drive trains, axles, suspension, automatic transmissions, suspension, brakes, electrical, heating, and air conditioning, as well as engine performance testing.
Because technology is always changing, certifications expire without undergoing continual training and testing. This means that your auto mechanic is sure to be informed and armed with the latest in automotive repair technology. Computer chips, diagnostics, and the engine performance of today is nothing like the muscle cars of days past. It is essential to know you have an auto mechanic armed with the latest training to ensure proper care and repair of your vehicle. 
By choosing a certified mechanic, you are sure to save money on auto repairs and maintenance in the long run. When you hire an uncertified mechanic, they are essentially training on your car. This means that they very likely don't know the nuances of a modern high-performance car. In this case, the repair job will take longer, and more labor hours mean more money. Even though a certified mechanic may cost a bit more, they are a bit faster in their work, and you can rest assured that the work will be performed to standard. You may discover that you are paying less money overall because you hired an informed and experienced mechanic.
In addition to the basic two years of experience, a certified mechanic undergoes, most ASE auto mechanics have years of additional experience under their belts. Many mechanic shops have technicians with twenty or more years of experience. If you have a high-performance car, you know that your investment is substantial and is also important to you. The last thing you need is an inexperienced mechanic tackle repairs on your investment that can lead to costly mistakes.
