So, Who Actually Works On My Car?
MECHANIC? - NO
The word «Mechanic» makes you think of a guy from the 1960´s named Joe, with dirty hands, smudged face, greasy clothes and a wrench in his pocket. The high school dropout who might not have the intellect to work on our complex cars today. Hence the term MECHANIC is quickly disappearing.
TECHNICIAN? - NO
On the other hand, the word «Technician» conjures up mental pictures of a guy in a sterile lab coat who hasn´t had his hands dirty in his life. He may be able to think about what´s wrong, but will he be man enough to dive into your car´s problem to fix it?
Automotive Service Technician - Yes
A Great Auto Service Technician Is Worth His Weight In Gold!
The truth is that with today´s sophisticated cars, the good auto service technician must be a combination of diagnostic wizard, mechanical engineer, electrician, continuing student and great mechanic. It´s not glamorous work, but it´s exciting work. Part detective, he must discover the problems and then, take the puzzle apart and put it back together again to work perfectly.

To you, his job is extremely important. It keeps you on the road, getting you to work, school, shopping and vacation. It keeps your car reliable, from the day-to-day routine, to cross country trips or the late night emergency.
