I've been working as an auto technician for over 12 years and I'm ASE and TIA certified. I've worked at Chevrolet and Ford dealerships and also have extensive Honda knowledge. My fields of expertise are replacing brakes, timing belts, fuel pumps, window motors, and axles, as well as performing preventative maintenance repairs. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and I firmly believe that safety comes first with each of my customers.
