Johnson County Auto Recognized as Top Auto Shop

MERRIAM, KS--(Marketwire - January 19, 2011) - Johnson County Auto (JoCo Auto), one of less than five percent of auto shops approved by AAA in the country, was named a 2010 top shop this month by the Monday Morning Mechanic (MMM), an automotive repair expert who ranks the country's best shops.

"One of the criteria for the Top Shop award is it's a place I would want my mom to go," said David Rogers, the MMM. "Not only do you have to be the best in auto repair, you have to be looking out for the best interests of your customer and not simply your bottom line."

For more than 25 years, JoCo Auto has been providing Kansas City metro area customers with honest and ethical service. Employing ASE-certified technicians, the JoCo Auto team is qualified to use the most cutting-edge technology, and receives constant training and certifications. Owner Alan Heriford trains his team to educate their customers about repair options and preventative maintenance in an effort to prolong the life of each vehicle, providing service in the most cost-effective manner possible. Customers can find additional car care tips on the JoCo Auto blog.

"With a team of committed and accountable staff, I know my customers are getting the respect and services they deserve and advice that will help their cars run better and longer," said Heriford. "The MMM award is a testament to our superior customer service."

The MMM recognizes exceptional auto shops on an annual basis, selecting only those that have outstanding BBB ratings, recognition with other achievements and awards, and provide honest and ethical service to their community. The MMM is based out of Keller Bros. Auto Repair in Littleton, Colo., recognized nationally as the number one shop in the nation with the CARQUEST National Excellence Award. The experts behind the MMM are David Rogers and Terry Keller, AMI (Automotive Management Institute) Accredited Automotive Managers, who share a combined 60 years of hands-on experience.
