Why Us

You Can Trust Our
ASE-Certified Technicians

Watsonville, Freedom, Aptos, Capitola, Santa Cruz

Edgar expects all work performed to be done correctly the first time, by himself and the technicians as “comebacks” are a waste of time for clients and a money-loser for the shop. ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) is nationwide non-profit automotive organization. Their aim is to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service through the testing and certification of repair and service professionals. An ASE certificate usually, serves as proof of one’s competence and effectiveness.

“There’s a difference between the classroom, just being smart, and the real world when you’ve got your hands on a car,” says Edgar. “Our ASE techs are both smart in the class and in the garage. If they’re dealing with a check engine light on issue due to a faulty gas cap, they know to double- and triple-check their diagnostics — check for a loose wire, ‘go deeper,’ I tell them.” If it’s vacuum leak, misfire diagnostics, or another car drivability problem, rest assured the ASE techs of La Rue’s Auto of Watsonville, Freedom will “dig” until they solve whatever issue ails your auto.
