When your sedan has a problem, or just needs some routine service, you might get a little nervous. Your car’s so important to your life in Des Moines, you need to back on the road as soon as possible – with the problem fixed right the first time.
If you’ve ever checked into some of the technician training All Pro Servicenter professionals receive, you may be surprised at how much specialized knowledge and skill goes into diagnosing and repairing a modern car. For example: Today there are four cylinder engines that generate more power than the 1980s-era V-8’s. I mean a new V-6 Toyota Camry could beat Sonny Crocket’s Ferrari in a race to sixty.
Our engines are more and more powerful and at the same time their fuel economy keeps inching up – even with steep Johnston gas prices. They are also amazingly reliable: Kudos to the automotive engineers at the leading car makers. But the advances come at the price of simplicity. The modern cars Johnston motorists drive around Iowa expressways are so much more complex from a mechanical standpoint that it makes your head spin – not to mention the electronics.
Some sedans have several networked computers controlling most of the engine functions and many other vehicle operations as well. Johnston motorists take all of this sophistication for granted – but somebody has to fix it when it breaks. It’s a real challenge for All Pro Servicenter technicians to keep up, but we work hard to stay ahead of the technology. It requires a high level of commitment on the part of the technicians and the Johnston service centers as well.
All Pro Servicenter technicians receive training through a combination of formal classroom training, training provided at All Pro Servicenter by parts and equipment manufacturers, on-line courses and home study courses.
In addition to the expensive training, there’s the financial commitment for All Pro Servicenter to purchase the diagnostic and repair tools.
There are many independent certifications available at All Pro Servicenter all the way up to Master Technician. The ability to repair your sedan requires a strong combination of training and resources. No one can know everything, so Des Moines auto service centers subscribe to data services, technical libraries and even on-line communities that can help them when they run into a difficult problem.
It’s like those medical diagnosis shows on TV. Here are the symptoms – what’s the diagnosis and treatment? Diagnosis is every bit as much an art as a science. At All Pro Servicenter, we want everything to be simple, straightforward and inexpensive – but sometimes it just isn’t.
The next time you bring us your sedan, don’t worry. You’re in good hands at All Pro Servicenter.
