When your pickup has a problem, or just needs some routine service, you might get a little nervous. Your car’s so important to your life in Ennis, 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 Avenue Automotive 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 Palmer 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 Palmer car owners drive around Texas expressways are so much more complex from a mechanical standpoint that it makes your head spin – not to mention the electronics.
Some pickups have several networked computers controlling most of the engine functions and many other vehicle operations as well. Palmer motorists take all of this sophistication for granted – but somebody has to fix it when it breaks. It’s a real challenge for Ennis Avenue Automotive 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 Palmer service centers as well.
Avenue Automotive technicians receive training through a combination of formal classroom training, training provided at Avenue Automotive by parts and equipment manufacturers, on-line courses and home study courses.
In addition to the expensive training, there’s the financial commitment for Avenue Automotive to purchase the diagnostic and repair tools.
There are many independent certifications available at Avenue Automotive all the way up to Master Technician. The ability to repair your pickup requires a strong combination of training and resources. No one can know everything, so Palmer 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 Avenue Automotive, we want everything to be simple, straightforward and inexpensive – but sometimes it just isn’t.
The next time you bring us your pickup, don’t worry. You’re in good hands at Avenue Automotive.
