AAA Approved Auto Repair Shop Receives National Recognition
From: AAA Approved Auto Repair
Two AAA Approved Auto Repair facilities in Southern California and one facility in the AAA East Central market were named in Motor Age magazine's top 10 auto repair shops for 2014.
George's Sierra Shell in Fontana, Calif., and RM Automotive in Northridge, Calif., and Rad Air Complete Car Care made the annual "Top Shop" list and are featured in this month's issue of the magazine.
Doug Whiteman, owner of George's Sierra Shell, is an Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certified Master Technician, a Certified Undercar Specialist and the 2008 Los Angeles ASE Technician of the Year. George's Sierra Shell is an AAR facility since 2008, a NAPA Auto Care Center, and a part of the Automotive Training institute (ATI). The repair facility has a valet entrance, three service bays and plans to add two more bays.
RM Automotive in Northridge also made the magazine's Top Shop list. This shop is co-owned by Mike Wright and Reed Galloway, both ASE Certified Master Technicians. RM Automotive is an AAR facility, has 24-hour online appointment scheduling and complimentary shuttle. Wright is a national winner for Honda America's Top Technician and a Honda Gold Level Technician. Galloway is a Honda Silver Level Technician.
Rad Air Complete Car Care and Tire Centers is a Motor Age Top Shop for the fifth year in a row. Owned by Andy and Elissa Fiffick since 1975, the business has 12 locations throughout Northeast Ohio.
As AAR facilities, the repair shops have met the strict AAA Approved Auto Repair Program criteria for technician certification and customer satisfaction. AAA approved shops also offer a wide range of automotive services and are equipped with the high-tech equipment needed to repair today's sophisticated vehicles.
"The AAA Approved Auto Repair program examines a repair shop's operation and awards approval to only the best shops in the business," said Dave Skaien, the Auto Club's AAR program manager. "For these repair shops to be named to a national industry list such as this speaks very well of their capabilities and customer service."
