AAA Approved Auto Repair
Every AAA Approved Auto Repair shop undergoes a comprehensive investigation and meets stringent AAA standards unrivaled in the industry. You can trust in the AAA name and be confident in choosing an Approved Auto Repair facility to service your vehicle.
The Approved Auto Repair approval process is tough. When a shop applies, a AAA/CAA service specialist inspects the facility for cleanliness, proper tools, adequate technical training and appropriate technician certifications. A survey then is performed with a significant number of the facility’s customers to find out how well the business has met their automotive service needs. Every question on the survey must receive at least a 90 percent positive response before the facility will be considered for approval. AAA also checks the facility’s reputation with government and consumer agencies, and runs insurance and financial background checks. A committee of AAA club officials makes the final decision on whether a facility receives approval.
We have received AAA Top Shop honors for 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016

- Guaranteed written estimates
- Return of replaced parts (on advance request)

Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certified
ASE stands for Automotive Service Excellence.
ASE’s mission is to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service through the testing and certification of repair and service professionals.
Here’s how ASE certification works: Prospective candidates register for and take one or more of ASE’s 40-plus exams. The tests are grouped into specialties for automobile, medium/heavy truck, truck equipment, school bus, and collision repair technicians as well as engine machinists, alternate fuels technicians, parts specialists, auto service consultants, and collision damage estimators.
Upon passing at least one exam and after providing proof of two years of relevant work experience, the test taker becomes ASE certified. Certification, however, is not for life. To remain certified, those with ASE credentials must be retested every five years.

BBB letter grades represent the BBB’s opinion of the business. The BBB grade is based on BBB file information about the business. In some cases, a business’ grade may be lowered if the BBB does not have sufficient information about the business despite BBB requests for that information from the business.
