Since 1983, Metro Transmission and Automotive has been considered one of the most reliable and trustworthy San Marcos mechanic shops. While we first started out as a transmission specialist shop, we eventually grew into a full service automotive repair center. What made this transition possible for us was our dedication to providing our clients with exceptional service, and our drive to be the best repair shop in San Marcos and the surrounding North County Areas. From multiple certifications, to a nearly perfect online and local reputation, we strive to give our clients a memorable service every time.
Automotive Repair Certifications
Many mechanic shops claim to be “great” or “the best” in their industry, but without the proper certifications can you really trust their word? At Metro Transmission and Automotive we let our certifications speak for us. One of the most important and relevant mechanic shop certifications comes from The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). As a consumer, an ASE certification is important to you for multiple reasons. It means the mechanics working on your vehicle have been properly educated by the most comprehensive training in the industry. Beyond the education, ASE also requires their certified technicians to have a minimum of 2 years’ experience. According to the ASE website the certification requirements are as follows. (“About ASE,” 2019, para. 4)
“In addition to passing an ASE Certification test, automotive technicians must have two years of on the job training or one year of on the job training and a two-year degree in automotive repair to qualify for certification.”
On top of our mechanics being ASE certified, we are an AAA Approved Auto Repair Center with a 100% approval rating. We are also certified with the Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Association (ATRA). The ATRA is the largest network of transmission repair professionals in the world, consisting of over 2,000 members. We take our reputation seriously and do all we can to continuously improve the services we provide for our customers.
Just as a mechanic promising they are the best without certifications, a certification doesn’t carry much weight without a positive reputation. We’ve spent years developing relationships with our clients, and constantly improving our services through certifications and training. The combination of these two things has led us to being one of the most trusted and reliable San Macros Mechanic Shops. We understand the importance of being able to trust your mechanic, which is why we take the time to explain our repair process with each client. We’ll help you weigh your repair options and come up with the safest and most cost effective solution to get your vehicle back on the road. We go the extra mile for our clients to ensure each visit is memorable for all the right reasons!
