AAA Approved Auto Repair

All AAA members receive a 10% discount on parts and labor charges up to $50.00. AAA approves less than 5% of all automobile repair shops in Southern California.  That is because most auto repair shops cannot hold up to the scrutiny their investigation and inspections demand.  AAA looks into our credentials, our equipment, our technicians’ abilities and certifications, and they even check with the state to see if we have violations or complaints on record.  We are subject to surprise inspections from AAA representatives and graded on a multitude of categories.  Associated Automotive Service maintains AAA expectations and is proud we have their approval.

ASE Certified Technicians

We employ ASE certified technicians and are diligent about keeping up with the latest technology by consistently attending new training classes and seminars to stay in tune with the ever-changing automotive industry. Associated Automotive Service is your one-stop maintenance shop to help you maintain your investment in your vehicle.

Financing Available

Car Care One/Synchrony Bank Credit
When costly car repairs happen unexpectedly that don’t fit into your budget, it can be hard to get the repairs done. We understand that so we have partnered with Napa’s Car Care One credit program. The application is short and if you meet the requirements, approval is immediate. The best part about this credit card is that it offers deferred interest for 6 months to one year, depending on amount financed.

NAPA Auto Care Center

Our status as a NAPA Auto Care Center gives you, our customer, many positive benefits. For example, NAPA provides a nationwide warranty from our shop for repairs using NAPA auto parts on both labor and parts. That means if you find yourself in another state and breakdown because of a repair we did, you’re covered at any other nationwide NAPA Auto Care Center. Another benefit you receive is a quality repair using quality parts. The reason we have chosen to be a NAPA Auto Care Center is to partner with a company that delivers high-quality parts that exceed or match OEM specifications that will last longer and perform better.
