With so much advancement in technology how do we know who is qualified to work on our cars? Yes you know eventually I am going to tell you that I can do it but I want to add more then that. I want to add my experience as a dealership tech and explain what changes I’ve seen.
The first day I put on a uniform for a major manufacturer I was very proud. I had landed a job with Mazda.
That’s what being the best mechanic is all about. It’s not about being the best mechanic vs other mechanics. It’s about being the best mechanic for your customer, client, friend. Doing the best job I can isn’t proportional to the pay of a job but rather it is a required effort for me to feel as though I have done what I am supposed to do.
Second to that is education and experience. They go hand in hand within the automotive industry. Someone fresh out of college might know on paper how an eccentric shaft affects valve lift in a Nissan motor but until they have diagnoses a real world issue with that system they have no real way of knowing how to see problems with it. Not every technician in the dealership is experienced. In fact, most have very little experience compared to a master technician. Most dealerships employ only one or two master technicians. Some dealerships don’t employ any! How do you know if the tech working on your car knows what he’s doing? You don’t.
So back to the beginning where I said I’d obviously be plugging myself here. Well I am. I can help you with almost any automotive need. Transmission slipping, check engine light on, brakes grinding, seat not working, air bag light flashing, suspension popping, misfires, vibrations, parts falling off….you name it. If I can’t help you I will do my best to give you the information you need in order to make a smart decision about what to do next. Taking care of YOU is my most important goal.
Thank you for reading all of this! I hope you have a wonderful day!
