ASE Certified

What Does it Mean to be ASE Certified?

under hood with checklist and computer ASE is the abbreviation for the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.  ASE is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of auto repairs and service by testing and certifying mechanics across the United States. Since 1972,  ASE has been the premier issuer of advanced professional automotive technician certifications.

When you entrust your car, truck or SUV to an ASE certified mechanic, you can be sure that the technician working on your vehicle is the one ASE certified. Simply, ASE does not certify entire repair shops – only individual mechanics. This means that each of our mechanics had to earn their certification, which means that your car is in the hands of one of the most qualified professionals in the automotive repair industry.

When we say that our technicians are among the most qualified in the industry, we mean it. Only one in three technicians who take the ASE certification exam for the first time will record a passing score. In addition, there are over 40 specialty sub-categories where technicians can earn additional certifications. Be sure to trust and call (512) 326-3474 for one of the world-class mechanics from Leonard’s Garage when you need a Mechanic in Austin, TX.

The Qualifications

Not only do candidates for ASE certification have to pass an independent, comprehensive exam, they must also have accumulated two years of practical experience or one year of practical experience with a two-year degree in the field of auto repair. Once certified, mechanics must retake and pass an updated exam every five years to maintain a current ASE certification.

Vehicle Maintenance

tech with computer under hood Auto repair service experts agree, having your car, truck or SUV serviced regularly for basic maintenance is one of the most important steps a car owner can take towards keeping their car running as long as possible. It’s simple – like any other piece of machinery, your vehicle needs to routinely have its fluids flushed, hoses and belts replaced and systems checked for signs of potential issues.

With automobiles, maintenance is of vital importance. As every car owner knows, going without an oil change for too long can be catastrophic for your car. Without the proper amount of clean oil, your engine will fail. Engine failure is one of the most expensive issues that a car can experience, which makes scheduling a routine oil change and maintenance checkup all the more important.

Consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual to determine how often your car needs an oil change and systems checkup. When it comes time for your car’s next maintenance appointment, bring your vehicle into Leonard’s Garage to see a mechanic in Austin, TX. Call us today at (512) 326-3474!
