Automotive Service Excellence
Until the early 1970s, consumers had no way to distinguish between incompetent and competent mechanics. In response to this need, the independent, non-profit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) was established in 1972.
ASE's mission is to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service through the testing and certification of repair and service professionals.
At present there are over 420,000 professionals with current certifications. They work in every segment of the automotive service industry: car and truck dealerships, independent garages, fleets, service stations, franchises, and more.
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, collision damage estimators and auto service consultants.
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.
The tests, which are conducted twice a year at over 700 locations around the country, are administered by ACT, known for its academic and occupational testing programs. The exams stress knowledge of job-related skills. They are no cinch to pass; approximately one out of three test takers fails.
Consumers benefit from ASE certification. It is a valuable yardstick by which to measure the knowledge and skills of individual technicians as well as the commitment to quality of the repair facility employing ASE-certified professionals.
ASE-certified professionals usually wear blue and white ASE insignia and carry credentials listing their exact area(s) of expertise (brakes, engine repair, etc.), while employers often display their technicians' credentials in the customer waiting area.
Consumers should look for facilities that display the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence© logo.

Im so glad I found this repair shop! the Averys team has a customer for life. well equipped shop to handle all my needs and Eric is a pleasure to work with. if you are are looking for a automotive repair facility this is the place!
The Customer Service and work completed is impeccable. I will continue to use them for both of my vehicles. Best at Rita Ranch.
We have used Avery's Auto Repair for many years and have been 100% satisfied. Prices are comparable and sometimes less than other repair shops especially with the military discount. We can always rely on them to not only figure out a problem and have the solution to fix it but to explain it to us in terms we understand. It was difficult to find parts for our 14 year old mini van, but they searched until they found what was needed. Repairs are always done quickly and competently; we can always depend on them. The fact that they are in the neighborhood and provide transportation between our home and the shop is a huge plus for us. We have always had professional and courteous interactions with the staff. Won't go anywhere else.
I've been taking my vehicles to Avery for the past six years for regular and unexpected maintenance. Rich, Eric and the team, have always treated me professionally, explaining the service required including an estimate, before the work is started. They don't upsell, but there have been times when a part needed to be replaced. When this occurs, they show me the affected part and explain why the replacement is necessary. Their prices are reasonable and their courtesy van is a plus. I will continue to take my vehicles to Avery and highly recommend their services.
I can only offer a favorable review of Avery's Auto Repair.Rich,Eric,and the entire work crew are there to help diagnose and repair problem(s),inform you of the costs to repair them,do a thorough evaluation of any additional service points needed,offer a AAA discount in addition to providing a shuttle service to your destination.I have the utmost confidence in knowing that after leaving their repair facility that any and all repairs were completed in a timely and professional manner.They are an honest repair shop that stands behind their work,offering courtesy and peace of mind to the owners of repaired vehicles brought there.Never once have I had to return to them for any type of complaint about their repair service.
I took our F350 dually in for Auto Trans flush and change to synthetic oil. A very clean, professional shop with knowledgeable mechanics and very friendly staff. I would go back in a heartbeat for further service in the future.
