Is the mechanic working on your car certified?

Make sure the mechanic working on your car is ASE certified. Not only certified but certified in the area of which he/she is working on your car. You wouldn't want someone who is certified in brakes working on your engine or transmission.

What is ASE?

ASE (National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence) is a non-profit organization that works to improve the quality of vehicle service and repair by testing and certifying automotive professionals. ASE have 8 areas of certifications:

  • A1) Engine Repair
  • A2) Automatic Transmission/Transaxle
  • A3) Manual Drive Train & Axles
  • A4) Suspension & Steering
  • A5) Brakes
  • A6) Electrical/Electronic Systems
  • A7) Heating & Air Conditioning
  • A8) Engine Performance

Those who have passed A1-A8 are recognized as ASE Master Automotive Technicians. Look for the ASE logo on the uniforms of the technicians (typically a patch on the sleeve) and a certificate should be proudly displayed on the wall.
